    Newest upload [05/09/2020] - Weekly Famitsu 48 April 9 1988 https://archive.org/details/famitsu-1988-apr-9 Hey there, its been awhile. I've been too lazy/depressed to do anything other than hit a "like" button. I have a bunch of new #notmyscans to upload and I have a partially edited Xbox Famitsu that I should get around to finishing. There is also a giant box of old Japanese magazines that I never got around to mailing to E-Day that has some pretty special stuff.

    So Another box arrived at my house today from CIVICMINDED. Thankfully only one box this time, but it was filled with dozens of mini guides, catalogues, newsletters, supplements and other odds and ends. The work never ends!

    It's actually very simple. Just like all Japanese magazines or books, if the text is printed vertically, it will be read right to left. If the text is horizontal, it will be read left to right.

    How would you feel about receiving 600 or so Japanese mags (I'm just guessing, really, but it's A LOT OF BOXES full of thick mags)? If anyone wants to front the 10 million dollars in shipping from Japan to Canada, I'd be happy to unload my Japanese mags to you if you'd scan them. Well, no, that's a lie. To be honest, even just boxing them up and taking them to the post office is more work than I feel like putting into it at this point. Recent times have got me reevaluating my life and I've realized that it's asinine to spend one more second scanning magazines I don't care about. I've got no more interest in video game mags than I do in mags about cross-stitching. They just aren't my thing. Too bad you can't just drive over and pick them up. THAT I'd be fine with. So whaddaya say? Fly to Japan, take a train to my place, box em up and ship em back to yourself, and then fly home. You could even do some sightseeing while you're here!

    As all the strategy guides are edited and are currently being released, I have taken an editing break and am doing some manual scanning. There are still some items with @Crimsonfox and @jonphilmitch waiting to be edited (though during the pandemic there are much more important priorities for people so those might be a while). These manual scan will include several updated scans for VG&CE as some scans are 12 years old. Scanning all of these has reminded me how much scanning manually sucks.

    When a book is over 1000 pages, who in their right mind would want to read a digital copy, anyway? Flipping through that many pages quickly to find something specific is far easier done with a book than with a digital copy. There's probably an index in the back to make it even easier. Personally, I think strategy guides, even thin ones, are FAR better to own in print form. If I have a question about what to do in a game and I'm on my computer, I can get better information from a FAQ or youtube walkthrough faster than finding it in a strategy guide, whether real or digital. But if I was AWAY from my computer, playing the game on my couch or whatever, then I could have a print guide open in my lap if need be. So that's where a strategy guide's value is, in my opinion. Magazines are for reading, so that can be done anywhere, making digital just as good as print. But strategy guides are just better on paper. Imagine needing to find a definition of a word. Connected to the internet? A super-fast search finds the answer. Offline? A real dictionary will be infinitely faster than a digital dictionary on CBR or even searchable PDF. Things meant to be read in order are fine as digital copies. Reference works meant to be flipped through out of order are best in physical format. EDIT for clarification: I don't mean to sound like I'm criticizing anyone for scanning strategy guides. Digital is better than nothing if the print guide is no longer available to purchase.

    E-Day's been living the easy life, scanning puny English guides. I noticed a 3rd grader at school today reading a Pokemon guide...it was over 980 pages. And here's a couple of guides for the new Animal Crossing game: The one on the left (from Nintendo Dream) is 1,216 pages and the one on the right (From Dengeki) is 976 pages. Both of these retail for around $15, by the way. They'd probably cost $50 if published in the US.

    Hello everyone. First, thank you for all that you do. I must admit, ending up in the Ghost section is finally making me post this suggestion that's been on my mind for a long while. Forgive me if this was discussed before, but how does the idea of creating DAT files for each publication sound so we can all keep track of what's new, missing and updated? Something similar to the TOSEC Pix project. An application like Clrmamepro can scan files, record the hash value and output it to a text file that you can use to scan your collections. At some point, I got confused on which magazines were new and which were updated. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    Sorry for the late reply. I was creating dats of my magazine files using clrmamepro and wanted to report my findings. I also wanted to state that clrmamepro is primary used as a ROM manager, but I noticed the DATs from the TOSEC-PIX project are compatible with clrmamepro and similar ROM managers. Now the good news. Creating the dats work as intended. I was able to generate the correct hash values. i renamed some files and the dat file was able to rename then back to the original names in the dat. Now here is where it gets sticky and I apologize in advance if this doesn't sound very clear as I'm having trouble explaining it in words. Although cbr/cbz is considered a compression format, clrmamepro sees this as a normal uncompressed file. Creating the dats for cbr/cbz files is no issue at all, but if you want to scan your files to make sure they match up, the cbr/cbz files either need to be compressed using .zip, .rar or 7zip which is not an issue for clrmamepro. Now if you want to scan them as cbr/cbz files and I'm assuming this is how you'd like it to work, clrmamepro needs to rebuild the files and will create individual folders containing each file or if you create a dat with a root folder with the files, the rebuilder will create the root folder with the contained files as cbr/cbz. The one problem I noticed using this method is that if you decide to move the root folder to another location, the scanner doesn't pick up on the files. I may be incorrect, but it might be something specific to clrmamepro. Also, this issue doesn't happen when the files are compressed using zip/rar/7zip Let me know what you think and if you need any more clarification or have any questions. Thanks!

    I just checked a walkthrough, and 9 out of the 18 levels have at least one extra objective on 00 agent (the other 9 are identical to secret agent). So it looks like my memory is faultier than yours - it only took a year for me to get confused. I guess the strength of the memory of my disappointment over the 50% of the game without extra objectives overshadowed the memory of the 50% of the game with them.

    The Super Street Fighter II guide is scanned and is waiting for release. I'm currently releasing nothing but strategy guides in alphabetical order, so this one will be up in a few weeks at the most.

    I've scanned and edited an MK2 supplement that was included with Electronic Gaming Monthly issue #57 April 1994. It's the 1st of a 2 part supplement. The other one that goes with this is already in our database. I'm ready to have this submitted to the downloads section! Download it here
