    Thank your for doing the editing on this. I was not very sure if my scans was up to the standards of retromags. I may have some other magazines that retromags may want when i scan them.

    I was releasing all the guides in alphabetical order but because I figured that this would be the most popular out of all of them I saved it for last.

    Thrilled to see more VG&CE issues being uploaded. VG&CE was the first gaming mag I ever got a subscription to back in November 1990.

    Issue 77 and 108, both dealing with SFII have dropped online. No clue who's scanning these or if there's any more out there. So you've said you don't have the "special issues" correct? So this could easily work out. This project does the standard issues while these special issues pop up periodically scanned by unknown parties. https://archive.org/details/ii-street-fighter-ii-dash-gamest-77 https://archive.org/details/ii-super-street-fighter-ii-gamest-108

    Well credit to all of you then because this is a wonderful collection of nostalgia you're curating here. And, at least to people like me, this is important work.

    Fuji's Scansnap ix500 are popular here. But any Adf's that can do 600dpi will be probably good too. Even though we dont use 600dpi.

    I'm still on the fence about us not hosting Game Fan. We got the word about not hosting them third hand many years ago when Dave Halverson wanted to sell digital versions of the original magazines. He was working with OOPA at the time. If you go to the page that still lists them (http://outofprintarchive.com/catalogue/gamefan1.html) and try to click through to buy any of the three issues, the shopify link to do so no longer works.

    Good news: There's someone scanning and uploading Silent Hill Japanese guidebooks. The version of Perfect Navigation File that I uploaded was some really sloppy scan where they just threw it into the scanner without unbinding it so I'm glad someone re-scanned it. They are uploading the raw .tiff images and then cleaning them up and uploading as .pdf. I've left a message explaining how cbr/cbz is a better format. https://archive.org/details/@bigmanjapan?and[]=Guide+silent+hill https://archive.org/details/silenthillperfectnavigationbookpdf/mode/2up https://archive.org/details/silenthillperfectnavigationbookpdf/mode/2up Bad news: I don't know who Sketch the Cow is but they upload a lot of files but they upload downscaled files sometimes. So first they uploaded the same R-Type Delta guidebook, but it's 80MB rather than the original size and they messed up the title! "R-Type Official Guidebook Gamemezz EX69". "Gamenezz" must be some kind of mangling of "gamest" More blatant is the Wizardy Gaiden 2 book I uploaded. My copy is 198 MB and I got it right from the original scanner's source. His copy is just 14 MB. I think he's getting this stuff from places and they're using some kind of bot to mass download and then downscale files for efficiency. Problem is that sometimes they're the only person that I can find that has certain files. Are those the original files or are they downscaled copies? And I really don't know. A lot of the stuff I get is from Japanese language manga sites and they always make sure to upload the original unaltered files. A few Guides that seem exclusive to them: https://archive.org/details/Princess_Crown_Adventure_Guidebook https://archive.org/details/Dynamite_Detectives_2_Official_Guide https://archive.org/details/R-TYPE_TACTICS_Official_Complete_Guide

    Yeah, those CZURE scanners have really great infomercials, huh? Don't believe everything you see in an advertisement, though, and please don't waste $400 on one of those if your intention is to use it to scan magazines. That simply isn't what they're designed for, no matter what their marketing video will tell you. Those scanners are mounted cameras with software that will crop straighten the photo. The software will also try to distort the image in such a way as to straighten lines of text in a book that may be curved due to the curvature of the page. There are many apps for phones which do the same thing (though presumably the Czure scanners are better cameras.) But while they may be fine at creating an OCR copy of a text-only book, there's simply no way that a mounted camera can approach the level of quality that a scanner provides when dealing with magazines or other media comprised largely of images. You are free to scour the internet looking for a high quality "scan" of a fully-bound magazine created with a mounted camera, but I'm afraid you'd be wasting your time. It's just not the right kind of equipment for magazines. BUT The good news is, with your budget, you can get a high quality ADF scanner. I use the Fujitsu Scansnap ix500, which is no longer sold but has been replaced by the comparable Fujitsu Scansnap ix1500 . Fujitsu's scanners are highly regarded as some of the best for magazine scanning. E-Day uses a more expensive Fujitsu scanner capable of scanning A3 pages, but the ix1500 is all you will need for magazines made in the USA or Japan, since they are almost all printed at A4 size (including Famitsu). The bad news is, no matter what scanner you decide to use, the ONLY way you will get a quality scan which would look good enough to be accepted here is if you debind the magazines. That means removing the staples and cutting the pages down the center before running them through the scanner. This is how almost all of the magazines you see here at Retromags are scanned, including 100% of the Famitsu issues you see here. The fact that you were looking at a mounted camera to photograph your mags suggests that you were looking at a way to avoid debinding your magazines, but I promise you that it is a necessary step to creating a quality scan, particularly for a thick magazine like Famitsu.

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. By default, ScanSnap paper size is set to "automatic detection." This is actually autocrop. By manually selecting a paper size, you are turning autocrop off. If you select a size larger than the page you're scanning, it will ensure that you're scanning every part of the page. Unless my calculations are incorrect, if you scan two issues of Famitsu per week, you could be caught up in around 22 years. And then you could die with a tombstone engraved with "He wasted his life. What was he thinking???"

    For me the failure of the Virtual Boy is tinged with extra sadness because it's what forced Gumpei Yokoi out of Nintendo. Of course Yokoi was killed in a traffic accident not long after leaving Nintendo. It's always left me wondering what if the VB had been more of a success and Yokoi hadn't left Nintendo would he still be alive today? Who knows.

    Hey at least the SuperGrafx was backwards compatible. The follow-up PC-FX tanked massively and ultimately drove NEC/Hudson out of the console market for good.

    Interesting. I'd like to get a look at those. I guess Sendai was trying to create a recognizable cover design across all of their titles at the time? Hopefully someone other than the VGHF finds a copy so we can get them scanned, since flying to America to view their research library isn't a practical option for me.

    @kitsunebi77A little while back on my way to work I saw a bunch of PC mags (both PC gamer and hardware mags) all tied up out by the garbage on the street. I would have loved to dig in and see what was there, but in NYC the fear of bedbugs is very real. It was a real shame.
