Cool. I included both covers of Game Player's NG #2 (or at least what the database calls #2, I'd call it #3, but I'll save that for another topic). Don't know how you handle that, but it would be cool to see both covers in the same file.

Don't have that issue of EG. I don't go too crazy trying to get the pre-crash mags that are already scanned, and that one's on Digital Press:

Thanks, TheRedEye, for scanning the missing material, and to you too, E-Day, for putting it together!

I've noticed a couple of variant covers with early issues of GamePro">GP. I'm guessing market testing. But like the numbering, I suppose this is a discussion for another topic. :)

My understanding is that they de-emphasized the word "Nintendo" on the covers because Nintendo threatened to sue.

It's perfect, thanks! I am uploading the issue to the FTP now. When it gets updated on the site is up to Phillyman. I have two completed scans of new magazines that haven't been posted yet.

This site is very lucky to have TheRedEye and E-Day contributing their skills and time - kudos to you both, guys! :)

Sorry about missing page 69 of GamePro">GP 11 - that was my bad. I must've only had content pages on my mind when I pointed out the incomplete scan originally. I'll take better care in the future.

Looking forward to downloading the revised scans! :)

They will both go into the same file.

I like this idea. I hope the same is applied to other scans as well, as I've always had an interest in video game magazine variant covers. Especially those that were never announced or promoted as such.

And yes, this is both as niche as geeky as it sounds.

Videogaming Illustrated Issue 6 (June 1983) - missing back cover/inner back cover

Nintendo Power Issue 90 (Nov 1996) - missing poster

I'm assuming the page scans on Digital Press for VG Illustrated aren't up to Retromags spec?

I don't have that issue but I have the one after, it has the same back cover but a different inside-back. Inside-back is an ad for River Raid, wouldn't be surprised if it's in other mags of the time.

I have a loose Wave Race 64 poster in my cop of Nintendo Power">NP #90, I'm assuming it's from that issue. I can scan that.

I'm assuming the page scans on Digital Press for VG Illustrated aren't up to Retromags spec?

I was thinking the same thing, but - and someone correct me if I'm wrong - gleaning content from other sites/scans seems to be frowned upon here at RetroMags?

Personally, I'm of the mindset that - with the collaborative goal of archiving these magazines for the sake of the (eventual) public domain - resources and progress, net wide, should be shared when necessary.

So while I can understand the technical reasons regarding "spec" and quality issues, these should be the only reasons not to update the scan, imo.

I have a loose Wave Race 64 poster in my cop of Nintendo Power">NP #90, I'm assuming it's from that issue. I can scan that.

Wave Race 64 is a featured game in Nintendo Power">NP #90, so this is a pretty safe bet. Thanks, TheRedEye! :)

It is frowned upon simply because some people think they own the content they scan and are protective of it, even when you give them full credit. It's easier to have everything done within this site than to borrow other people's scans. The exception is if they come to us asking if we want to host it as well.

Re-reading my earlier post, it sounds as if I'm in favor of simply grabbing content from other sites to host here at RetroMags. Certainly not what I intended to imply. I definitely believe in credit where credit is due and properly contacting these sites/scanners beforehand.

I'm only suggesting RetroMags be open to accepting scans from other sources. Both by accepting requests and perhaps by making some requests of our own. :)

I'm a little reluctant to post this, E-Day, considering all the time and work you've been putting in. Please don't shoot the messenger!

Game Player's Encyclopedia of Nintendo Games (April 1990) - missing page 148, contains duplicate of page 168

Ah, fiddle sticks. I'll get that fixed today. In the meantime, I will remove the download link.

EDIT: Actually, I can't fix it since I don't have the original magazine anymore. I got rid of it months ago. I guess this one will have to go on the list. Damn!
