    This issue shipped with an ENORMOUS double-sided poster of Ultima VII. I had to cut it into 8 pieces to be scanned, but it has been meticulously restored to perfection. The poster images have been included at the end of the archive at the same resolution as the rest of the mag (2500px high), but for anyone interested, I have uploaded the full-size versions (12,648 x 19,530) of the front and back sides here: Ultima VII poster Ultima VII map

    For over 10 years Retromags has contributed to the Folding@Home project. Each day our computers sit for hours powered on doing nothing but sitting idle. What if we could leverage those unused CPU cycles to put towards finding cures for Alzheimer's, Huntington's, Parkinson’s and Cancer? This video explains how your computer can assist in finding cures (much better than I ever could). Anyhow, for the past 10 years I have sat at the top of the leader board for our Team Stats page. No one has been able to dethrone me and thus I am issuing a challenge.... The first person to unseat me from the number 1 spot on the Retromags Team Stats (54458) page, will win a $250 Amazon Gift Card (Digital Delivery). I don't think any of you guys will even get close, but it will bring me great amusement to watch some try The stats are stack-able, so if you install the Folding@Home client onto all your home computers and enter our Team #54458 into each client, all of the work units will be counted towards your username. There are only two rules.... Your username must match the username you use here. You can not install the Folding@Home client onto workstations you do not own! It would be cheating if you were the IT staff for a huge company and just installed the client onto 250 workstations. You can see our stats page here.. http://fah-web2.stanford.edu/cgi-bin/main.py?qtype=teampage&teamnum=54458 Good Luck! Start Folding!

    The latest release of WinRAR by default uses RAR5 compression format which is not compatible with most comic readers at this time. Any .rar or .cbr file created with the current release of WinRAR will be unreadable on .cbr readers. (Files created with older versions of WinRAR will still be readable.) I recommend anyone not still using an older version of WinRAR to instead use 7-zip .zip compression and create a .cbz file instead.

    As the person who has uploaded the majority of the images at Retromags, I say you're welcome to whatever cover images you want. No need to credit them, either, in my opinion (full scans would be a different matter). I realized long ago how utterly ridiculous it was to expect us to ever fill in covers on the nearly 20,000 magazines currently in our database by waiting for site members to scan the covers of their personally owned mags (in the 2 years since I uploaded my first image, there have probably been less than 300 covers added by members other than myself). The mags we offer to download have are all products of Retromags scanners through and through (and will continue to be so), but for our galleries and database to be useful sources of information, I decided we needed to fill those image holes however possible, so our covers and ads have been pulled from all sorts of other sources. I spend a great deal of time seeking out the best images to use, and probably about 85% of them have been cleaned up by me in Photoshop before being added here, but that doesn't make them mine or ours, and there's no reason you shouldn't feel free to use them as well. EDITED TO ADD: To be clear, you're free to use any cover images from mags I've personally scanned as well. And again, so long as it's just the cover or an advertisement (and not the full mag) I would not expect any credit to be given. My goal when I joined this site was to get rid of all of the ugly grey "image coming soon" pics in our gallery, and create the most complete source of visual information about gaming mags on the internet. I've added nearly 10,000 pics since then, but I've only scratched the surface. Maybe one day we'll add French mags to the database (admittedly, not a priority at the moment), and if that happens, hopefully we'll be able to use some of your cover images as well.

    https://archive.org/details/@sketch_the_cow&tab=uploads I was just sort of messing around on Archive this evening and happened to notice a few new issues of Gamefan that has been uploaded. Going through it all, this guy/gal had uploaded VIRTUALLY EVERY ISSUE OF GAMEFAN back on Valentine's Day! He/she has also uploaded a bunch of Gamer's Republic, Play and others! Just sift through what this guy/gal has uploaded in the past two months, it's unbelievable! Anyway, I know GF isn't allowed here, but I thought I'd mention this for anyone interested. Between Archive, here and Old Game Magazine's(Kiwi's World) and Gamefan, EGM and GamePro, my retro-gaming magazine dreams have come true!

    I had a sega cd back then....it was meh cuz it didn't add much better color to the games and all the FMV games weren't really all that fun to play. Mortal Kombat was cool to have the real music, sounds and voices though. SNES games still looked better to me but I was Team Sega and would never admit that to my Team Nintendo friend back then lol

    Hey there guys - my name is Mike Vallas and I'm a former employee of Ziff-Davis/Sendai between 1991-2001 and have worked on practically all the magazines we did in that era. The reason I'm posting is that I'm in the midst of purging my home of old stockpile of mags when brought an old friend of mine to hang out. When I told him I was going to pitch these mags into the recycling bin he suggested to check you guys out and to see if you wanted them. Not only am I impressed at what you've done/are doing, but I've got a BUNCH of mags that you are missing that will fill your gaps! ^_^ First off, I believe I can finish out your entire Expert Gamer, EGM2 collection! I took a look at what you are missing and have practically all those issues in my "to recycle" pile. Here are the issues I currently have mint-condition copies of: Expert Gamer you currently need that I have: Issues 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 68, 69, 70, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77. EGM2 issues I can provide that you need: 25, 28, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, 47, 49. I also have various other things I've done, like a LOT of extra Versus Books/Prima/Brady strategy guides you seemingly do not have. I don't really have time to scan all these (after all, the point is to remove them! Not keep them around ;P) so I was wondering if we can arrange something where I can donate these. I've sent PMs to whom I believe are the people who work at this site, but feel free to message me back and we can talk! ^_^ Thx again! ^_^ Mike Vallas

    First I have seen this magazine. Big thanks to @mvallas for sending me issue 4 (I think). Not too much info on this magazine out there. I found the following info..... http://www.defunctgames.com/29magazines/13/magazine-13-foul-videogame-subculture https://forum.digitpress.com/forum/showthread.php?59416-Foul-Magazine https://forum.quartertothree.com/t/foul-magazine/1332 So far it looks like there were 11 issues total, I was able to pull the FoulMag.com website from the Wayback Machine. https://web.archive.org/web/20060116093308/http://www.foulmag.com:80/index.php/section_id/20 Issues are as follow...(it skips Issue #5 for some odd reason ) Please fill in any information or let me know if you have missing issues. I already snagged Issue #9 from Amazon as soon as I found it. I came up empty on finding any issues on eBay :(

    Hrmmmm... Some MK stories. There were a few. One of the nice things about Mortal Kombat was that Midway was in the Western Burbs of Chicago, and so were we! We met with them often, particularly when MK rose to its heights. In fact, that bit us in the arse one time when we published our first preview of MK2. It was based on one of the final betas they gave us and Barakka had a BUNCH of moves in the game like spinning like a top and such. We published them, and (due to our month delay) MK2 machines were already out and they REMOVED those moves! We had a TON of hate-mail comming back at us accusing us of photoshopping those moves, and we didn't! I even had a personal friend who believed it and I Insisted we didn't to him! It was kinda nice to be vindicated, albeit nearly a decade later, when Mortal Kombat Trilogy came out and they put Barakka's moves back in. Another story was meeting Rich Divizio who played Kano. Not much there but me being dissapointed that a: he was a really nice guy and b: he was MUCH shorter than me! Kinda took the umph out of that character. =/ Nothing though beat seeing Katalin Zamiar, who played Kitana, that she was REALLY short. Like 5'1 or something!

    Oh good christ do I ever have many stories One fun one I like to talk of recently actually involves Starfox 2 since that FINALLY got released via the SNES Classic thing by Nintendo. Short version: We saw the game on the show floor and we got hold of the video cables for Nintendo's main screen and spliced the game into a high-8 recorder without them knowing! Was funny too as the big screen blinked off/on quickly - thankfully alerting nobody. Then, Andy Baran (RIP) not only played that game on the show floor, but got all the way to the end and beat the game right there! We were so excited that we had the ENTIRE game recorded so we published the strategy guide (Found in EGM2, Issue 8) and were totally shocked to find out it got delayed, and then shelved. That's just a tiny story! Too many to tell! >_< Another fun fact about me: I'm the guy who did the photoshop work for a lot of the April Fools tricks. My credits go to the All-Bonds code, Akuma in RE2 (I originally pitched that to the EGM staff, but they wanted the All-Bonds code, so I put Akuma/RE2 into EGM2), the 2nd iteration of Shen Long in SF3 (Sushi-X/Ken Williams did the first one. I had only just started there... although I was the guinnea pig for it! I walked in and he showed me the screens and told me how he unlocked Shen Long. I was happy and thought the screens looked cool so I walked away and everybody started laughing! >_<) I also did the GameNOW Metal Gear Solid 2X and freelance-wise I did the LotR Cart Racer screen.

    Great job with the post. Living in NY, I was very lucky to have owned a NES (non) Deluxe Set back in 1985. My parents bought one for us as a "Back to school" / and more specifically, as a birthday gift for me. As soon as Super Mario Bros. came out here (Feb 1986), I added it with the rest of my boxes and snapped this picture. If you look closely you can see the NES (non) Deluxe Set box, as well as my R.O.B., who I've designated to hold my Duracel flashlight by this time. And here is my original NES gaming setup. I was also a card carrying member of the Nintendo Fun Club... Too much fun! I used to call all of the video game companies I could locate the phone numbers for, back in the mid-80's, and request any type of advertising they could send me. I loved collecting it, and still do! I received a lot of neat pamphlets.

    I adjust your scans but they are purely for my benefit. For example, in the case of the wonderful Tech Gian .... I remove the retromags credit page as I think it detracts somewhat (That's why none of my websites scans have a page at the rear either) I shift the CD-Rom image to page 3 where applicable and put a reverse/buffer page in as per the actual magazine so the the following pages sit side by side correctly I remove your double pages as the PDF side by side view shows the original pages anyway (but I love how good you are at getting them lined up. Amazing work there!!!) Convert to PDF I think the resulting file mirrors the physical print version but I might be wrong. However I don't release them on my website in that format as I know your views on altering your files. I just personally like my own files that way. If I could make a suggestion though, and it's only that, a suggestion, scan the CD and backing cardboard at the same resolution as the other pages and place them so that they sit in the CBR file just like the do in the physical magazine. That way page 5 is actually page 5 in the digital version. It's not like a small subscription insert which I don't bother with. It's an important aspect of the magazine so it should be exactly where it is sited in the print copy. But that's just me. As I said .... just a suggestion. I had thought about making PDF versions of Retromags content and hosting them at my site so people had a choice of preferred file type but I'm already running 810GB of my 1TB mediafire account so I didn't have enough space and I also would want to edit the files so fold-out pages display as they do in the print copy (my PC Gamer's and Computer Games:Strategy Plus files show you what I mean) so I decided against it. Plus there's the fact I like differences/variety between sites to encourage people visiting ALL sites and not just one. As far as my files are concerned, I have no problems with Retromags using them. Everyone else like Archive.org apparently is anyway. Feel free to convert them to .CBR format for the site. Just ensure that credit is given to the scanner, e.g, Kiwi@Kiwis.World or Jason@Kiwis.World etc or just Kiwis.World when uploading them here. As long as the quality aspect isn't interfered with I don't have a problem if people want to alter the files either (most likely related to fold-out pages as above as peoples preferences for those tend to vary)

    As an American who has been taken care of by another country's health care for the past 10 years, I fully agree. To chime in with my personal opinions on the topic of "why can't we all just get along?" -- I agree that sites should be working together, and hosting each other's scans or posting links to each other's sites where people can access those scans is something I'd like to see happen. I'd love our database to be able to link to Kiwi's site for scans he has that we don't or to archive or wherever. However, in these situations, I believe there are 2 things that are vital: 1) Give credit where it is due. Our site has separate fields for scanners, editors and donators. The general leeching public couldn't care less about who is responsible, but I feel that showing these credits nevertheless is a sign of respect and appreciation towards the people responsible for sacrificing their time and money to make these things available. Yes, we could choose to upload everything at archive.org ourselves (giving credit to ourselves) to work around this problem, but it doesn't change the fact that Jason and others are uploading scans there without bothering to take the extra 5 seconds to credit where they got them from, which is disrespectful and goes directly against the spirit of camaraderie espoused in marktrade's comment. 2) If scans are appropriated from elsewhere, even if credit is given, the files should be left unmolested. I think everyone knows my issues with RetroCDN shrinking and compressing our files, but it goes beyond just that. If our mags contain a Retromags credit page at the end, that should always be included when sharing our scans. Kiwi prefers PDF, so honestly I think his scans should be left that way when sharing (though at least in that case they could be converted between the two formats without actually altering the images.) I only upload files to Retromags, but I'm perfectly happy to have them shared anywhere and everywhere, so long as the two rules above are adhered to.
