Update 9/18 - Added Xbox Nation 8 June 2003

Nothing special this time, just needed to make some room on my shelf. I have a few Xbox Nation magazines to upload.

I have a few interesting items coming in. Two Tech-Gian issues and The Super Famicom #1. I'll take my time scanning the Super Famicom issue.

Update 9/24 - Added GameZone 133, August 2008.

This is something completely new to the site. GameZone is a weekly gaming magazine from Hong Kong (not related to the old UK magazine).

I figured out how to change the start page for each item. There is a file called _scandata.xml that allows you to set a <pageType>Title</pageType> value on the page you want the preview to start on.

By default, Archive.org uses an OCR system to attempt a self-identification of the title page, which has usually turned out wrong in my case.

What I have not figured out yet is how to get the thumbnail to re-index on the site. It continues to use the old one even after changing it.

EDIT: Looks like I was able to get the thumbnail to re-index, it just takes several hours. On the edit metadata page, scroll to the bottom where it lists __ia_thumb.jpg and on the dropdown, select 'Item Image'.

Added Play Magazine December 2006. I have one more Play Magazine left to upload.

 

Edit: Oh man, I just now see that someone already uploaded these Play magazines on Archive back in February of this year, so I wasted my time 😅

Added PC Gamer Malaysia December 2007. I definitely have not seen this one online yet.

This magazine is an offshoot of the UK version of the magazine. Some of the reviews are from the UK mag, but the rest is local content.
