Hi! I'm New But Just Checking To See If Anyone Wanted Blip! Or Np's?

Hi everyone! I'm new here and I think this is absolutely great! I'm bidding on a lot of Nintendo Power on eBay right now and I'm good with Photoshop and Adobe Acrobat (I'm a high school journalism teacher.) So I'm asking if we need any NPs from 1 - 58. If I win the auction, I will be more than willing to make pdf's of any the group needs before I send them off to be bound in hardcover for my bookshelf.

I also have an issue or two of Marvel Comic's Blip magazing that covered (or tried to) games back in the early 80's. Its in comic book format, but is a gamer mag from the Atari days. If anyone is interested, I'd be willing to scan it in also.

Maybe over the holiday break, I'll go through my collection and see what I have to contribute, but I thought I'd put those things out there as a way to say hi and that I'm willing to help the cause anyway I can.

Hope everyone is doing well!

I for one am interested in the Blip! issues.

Here is a recent topic on the needed Nintendo Power issues:

Feel free to mention your offer over there. There may be some issues that could use rescanning in better quality (not sure as I haven't downloaded them all).

Cool. I'll pull Blip out of my comic book boxes tomorrow. I'm currently snowed in, but I should be back at work on Wednesday. I'll check some of the threads to see what I can contribute. I should have some DC mags and a Saturn one or two as well. I wish I could find my old copies of the Atarian. Maybe they'll turn up when we move in February.

I'll get started on Blip this week. Its very funny to see the guys at Marvel taking a stab and gaming.

So your a teacher eh! Why couldn't there have been cool teachers like you when I was in school. Oh... I guess because video games back in the day were considered toys :unsure:

But hey welcome to the forums :Yahooo:

Hey guys.. sorry it took so long to get back. I had a yearbook deadline to oversee. Anyway, I have an issue of Blip scanned in and formatted to PDF. I don't know how to make a CBZ file so many apologies there. I use the software I have ya know? If anyone knows how to convert it then that would be most awesome and helpful.

So now my question is what do I need to do with this file? If someone just wants to point me to a thread that already answers this that is fine but I didn't know if people uploaded these somewhere and then linked here or what is the preferred method of getting these things up.

Hope everyone is doing well. Anyone else kinda sad about EGM?

Oh and I play multiplayer DS games with my high schoolers everyday at lunch... My favorite thing to do is play 9 on 1 Tetris DS. I had the record at Twin Galaxies for a while. (Though I think the score that knocked me off is totally bogus.) :)

Well making a cbr is much easier than making a pdf.

Put all your files into a folder in order of page number like NP000, NP001 or just simple like 000, 001, 002.

Then archive them as a RAR file once it all zipped up just change the file ext to .CBR and you have yourself a fancy new CBR file.

You might want to then zip the CBR file and then upload it to a site like mega upload. After you do that let us know and we can get the rest taken care of.

Oh.. thanks.. that is really easy. I'll try and get it rar'ed in the morning during my conference period.

Hope everyone is having a great evening.

I just checked the issue and made a couple of adjustment if you don' t mind.

The first one is that I included a thank you page in the release, which can be found here in various sizes: http://www.retromags.com/forums/index.php?...ost&p=13710

Then I noticed that the cbz was about 130MB for just 30 jpgs, which is quite large. So I resized them to a width of 1440 and a quality of 9 in PS4, which is still very high, and ended up with a cbz of 44MB.

I'll upload them right now if that doesn't interfere with me watching the first episode of the new 24. :D Otherwise it will be in a couple of hours. ;)

Thanks for the help! And 24 should never be interrupted. I wish more people understood that.

Hehe, no problem. So very true. :D

Same goes for Lost and Dexter IMO. ;)

Some of the greatest TV shows I've had the fortune to follow.

Oh, before I forget, I have upgraded your membership status from newbie to team member. Congratulations. ;)

Thanks! I feel awesome! BTW.. I also have the Consumer Reports NES Strategy Guidebook. It covers a lot of games and came spiral bound. The games it covers are really random but its a nice piece of nostalgia. I'll try and start scanning it soon. Why NES Three Stooges needs a strategy guide I'll never know.

That is really funny, someone actually made a strategy guide for the Three Stooges game? Can't wait to see that.
