Other contents of that VHS case full of nostalgia (or next to it in the case of the one rulebook that won't fit): a "oversize Ogre/GEV rulebook (printed back to back - Ogre side says 4th ed, GEV side says 3rd ed - maybe from a Deluxe Ogre set?), the aforementioned Shockwave rules, a metric @#$%ton of uncut counter sheets, an imperial @#$%ton of counters cut out and bagged (all the counters are of the same vintage and must be relatively new, they include white on black and black on white units AND red on white and white on red Ogres, two copies of the folded map with both the Ogre and GEV maps on it (printed next to one another), 3 (!) copies of the Shockwave map, and a single copy of the GEV map by itself. Plus the KS version of Pocket Ogre. I'm reasonably sure there's more obsolescent Ogre stuff in the basement (including a set of the boxed "board game" with the oversized Ogre map and the stand-up counters - alas that map is not big enought o be used with the ODE counters)
Ok, here's the rundown.

Shockwave was a baggie supplement (both in 1984 and 2000). You have the 2000 version

This is from the 1990 Ogre/G.E.V. set (and so is the Ogre and G.E.V. maps that are printed on the same sheet).

It's also possible that you have the 2000 version of Ogre/G.E.V., but missing the rulebook. That version came in a VHS box (and probably where the second Ogre/G.E.V. combo map sheet came from).

The various counters (white/black with red) are 2000-era sheets. The fact you have three SW maps suggests you have multiple sheets as well.

It's also likely you have a copy of the Reinforcement Pack, which might account for the extra G.E.V. and Shockwave maps, plus more shockwave-esque counter sheets.

We could further itemize, but that covers the basics.
