I recently acquired an A3 ADF Scanner so I've begun scanning in my magazine collection. So far I've done a few Vending Times and Famitsu issues I have, and will continue doing more. If you guys want to add them to the database you're more than welcome. #198 and #199 I'll likely redo in the near future though as I hadn't gotten the quality tweaked to where I liked it with those, same with the Vending Times but i'm not planning on redoing those.

Well, we can't add them to the downloads here in their unedited state, but if anyone is willing to download the RAW files from archive.org and edit them, then they can be hosted here (again, you would need to download and edit the multiple-GB RAW jpg folder, not the PDF).

Since that's unlikely to happen anytime soon, though, I encourage anyone interested to just head to archive and check out the scans as they are or download the (more reasonably-sized) PDF.

 

I think what most interests me is that you possess an A3 scanner.  Do you have any plans to scan any UK mags (since those of us with A4 scanners can't scan them)?  It would be great to have someone able to scan UK mags in our corner.

Sure I can scan them if you like, didn't realize those were larger size as well but if anybody wants to mail me anything to scan i'd be happy to.

Yeah, UK mags are too wide to fit in an A4 scanner.  I believe there are a few USA mags which are too big to scan as well.  Official Xbox Magazine, I think?

Official Xbox Magazine, Official Playstation and Official Dreamcast if I remember correctly.

 

Oh and Game Informer!

Hey JhonnyD! Unfortunately I don't have very many more but will try to pick some more up as i catch them at a good price. These weren't bad at all.

I have Official Dreamcast Magazine issues so I can knock some of those out. The rest I do not though but like I said if someone wants to mail me some I can work on them.

BTW added another Famitsu this morning, #134. https://archive.org/details/WeeklyFamitsuNo134June28th1991
