German Magazine Cover Disk Collection

Recommended Posts

While collecting old magazines, I sometimes come across piles of covers disks. Now I finally decided to upload them.

Currently 153 CDs are up, but I normally upload 5 CDs per day (and find ~10 CDs at the recycling yard every week).

Updates can be found here: BetaArchive thread

Cover Disks

If someone wants to contribute CDs (from any country and magazine), simply write a PM.

Now if only I could read/understand German... :)

Thankies :3

Luckily, most of the CD covers are labeled with a list of the demos, videos, patches, etc., that can be found on them. So it's not too hard to find stuff ^_^

Oh and if you want to search for things, here is an index (that should cover most of the CDs) that can be opened with the trial version of "WhereIsIt?":

I couldn't find any information about this, so I simply ask in my thread:

Can I upload mags from this site on my website?

I don't see why not, as long as you credit Retromags as the providers of the scans. :)

Doing a bit of a necrothread here, but it's relevant.

My website KultCDs.com features a searchable magazine CD catalog for quite some time now, that currently contains more than 3800 media.

http://kultcds.com/Catalog/

It has a bunch of neat functionalities that make the search for old files pretty smooth :)

You can search for descriptions:
http://www.kultcds.com/Catalog/index.php?n=-2&like=&name=&ext=&o=sa&min=&max=&dir=&dn=&descr=warcraft$20III$20demo$20install

Specific files:

http://www.kultcds.com/Catalog/index.php?n=-2&ext=exe&min=58586610&max=58586610&o=da

Far spread releases:

http://www.kultcds.com/Catalog/index.php?n=-2&like=eq&name=s2&ext=exe&o=sa&min=&max=&dir=root&dn=&descr=

Neatly grouped by size or by publishing date (which I call canonical date in a non-astronomic sense):

http://www.kultcds.com/Catalog/index.php?n=-2&like=eq&name=s2&ext=exe&o=cdd&min=&max=&dir=root&dn=&descr=

With old FTP servers and mailboxes closing down and archive.org lacking good search functions, this catalog is a pretty useful tool for everyone who wants to dig through the software data of the 90s.

Looks great! If you're interested in collecting cover discs, you should keep an eye on my ADO page. I have a few you're missing and will be uploading a lot more eventually.

Thanks a lot! Downloading all your stuff now and will add it to the catalog when it's done in a few hours.
