Video Games Issue 01 (August 1982)
Posted July 23
Wow, this is way cleaner than any other digital copy I have seen.
Thanks! I had two copies to work from though both had damaged back/inside back covers that I merged and did extensive repair on.
i also developed a method to make an even cleaner version but it would require extensive work. Basically the page yellowing is inescapable given the paper stock and standard hobbyist storage for over 30 years. The “To be continued” Atari ad is mostly clean and I created a “pure blank” page from it. By copying and pasting sections and then doing connective repair I eliminated the discoloration on six sample pages which I will share soon. Anti-aliasing and non-straight lines make some areas look “cut out” at 600dpi but go away scaled to 300dpi.
I may consider doing an issue this way just to calculate the extra time involved for future consideration.
