    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???"

    Moving away from computer games for a second, here's a guide to a console game - and you know what that means! Lots of pictures in full color! I've wondered why console game guidebooks are colorful and packed with artwork, but computer game guides are usually black and white with very little art, and I've come up with a few possibilities: Most console gamers were children. Color and pictures are necessary to appeal to that market. Meanwhile, most computer gamers were adults who would be more accepting of a drab presentation. But honestly, I think even adults would appreciate the pics and color... Consoles have always been big business in Japan, and computer games are more of a niche product. Thus there is less money to be made in computer game guides, and thus less money is spent on printing color pages with graphics. This is probably true, but probably not the only factor at work. Console games are usually very simplistic in gameplay, so very little needs to be said in text about strategies necessary to play them. Without all of the pictures, there wouldn't be enough text to fill a book. This is probably true to a degree. Does a fighting game really need a 150 page strategy guide, or would a few pages of move lists more or less cover all of the important information? Does a beat-em-up even need a strategy guide, when the only thing you do in the entire game is walk right and punch stuff? It's probably a combination of all three and some other reasons I haven't considered. But regardless of the reason, the bottom line is...hey look! A console game guide!! Pretty pictures!!!

    Relevant for this thread, I found Gamest Issue #125 and uploaded it to archive. This issue came with a poster which I don't believe is scanned. I believe this is a regular issue of Gamest much in the same way the previous SFII issue was dedicated to one game. I think later one they spun these issues off into the "Gamest Mook" line. If you check archive there's other issues of Gamest and Gamest mook floating around archive. https://archive.org/details/Gamest125Gokujuparodiusspecialissue

    Bump; I've just started scanning and cleaning up the covers and first 10 pages of Official US Playstation Magazine, November 1999. I don't mind posting my progress here; may I have one of the mods change the thread name to "Phanterm's Work Thread"? Less clutter that way, though I'm also happy to start a new thread.

    Btw, I just want to thank @Areala for sharing her opinion. I was unsure if it was the right thing to do, starting a new topic that wouldn't attract people looking for download links, since as I said, I'd rather not start new threads of me talking to myself. But now I know that someone actually read this post! And even replied! Thank you! I didn't know such things could even be hoped for in a forum.

    LOL. I just noticed that this file had zero guest downloads (most of our files are over 50% guest downloads, or in the case of the Final Fantasy VII Strategy Guide, over 90% guest downloads.) Something got messed up on the back end, but I just fixed it. So for everyone who visits the site but is too antisocial to register, you can download the file now.

    Even though this was my idea, I have not been good with actually updating it with my scans. I will update the list tonight of what I have already scanned and what will be upcoming as I have already prepped the next batch.

    Yeah I definitely don't want to damage or de-bound my magazines. Here are some examples of one magazine I scanned and cropped just in case the quality is anywhere near what you might be ok with? I know the image size isn't too large but I can get a higher quality scan. i totally understand needing to maintain a certain standard of quality when preserving old magazines, and if any mod or admin would be willing to accept unbound scans of the issues that I still have that are still missing 5 years later, let me know and I'd be happy to submit them.

    The most annoying part of scanning for sure. The best tip i say is to use the side edge of the scanner so the page is straightened. Then I would put a weighted book or something on top of the page so it doesn't move around when closing the lid. The thingy that is attached to the scanner lid isn't so good from my experience it doesn't provide much of holding the page in place. Check the edges one more time with the weighted book before closing and the page should scan correctly.

    He needs an A3 flatbed is what I am reading into this conversation. They aren't as cheap but there are a couple of options that don't involve buying a piece of crap Mustek scanner (avoid those like the plague) Try and find a Brother MFCJ6530DW all in one. They have a good A3 scanner

    So if one came from TOLUST, and one came from Junaz, why does it say it came from CIVICMINDED?

    I am. If we're dealing with a constantly evolving translation model, it makes sense that newer versions aren't immediately available on all the servers. Nothing on this scale works that way, and we'll probably see changes that appear in one server propagated to the rest in a matter of hours. I think that when serious research is involved, nothing is of no importance. Ad copy (especially when it's not presented as an actual ad) tells us how a company tries to present a work. You can tell a lot about particular corporate cultures and even about game development by seriously taking a look at them. There's really not a single word in those magazines that can't be used in some capacity when researching aspects of game culture at that point in time.

    I can't post the direct link because you would have to be a member of the AtariAge group, but the seller said that he would be interested in selling individual magazines as well as large lots. Let me know if anyone wants to buy anything and I can contact him. I do have dibs on VG&CE's October 1992 issue, though, ha.

    I was not playing console games in the 1990s -- I essentially skipped from the 2600 to the PlayStation -- so I never paid any attention to the NES and SNES magazines. That said, does anyone have a sense of how well titles like this sold BITD? Personally, I would only have purchased an occasional issue if there was in-depth coverage of a game that I had (or that I planned to get). I simply could not justify buying it on a regular basis, much less subscribing. There would be many issues with no relevant content. Obviously, today with generally much larger collections, and emulation, the situation is much different.

    I hope nobody minds, but I've decided to draw the line at adding arcade card game magazines to the database. They're big business in Japanese arcades (they'd have to be to support multiple magazines devoted to them), but since we've never had anything similar in the West (to my knowledge), and they can't be played by anyone not actually standing inside of an arcade in Japan, I just don't know who would possibly want to read about them here. Especially since they seem to mostly focus on soccer games, and from what I've gathered in forum posts through the years, most Retromags readers are adamantly opposed to the existence of sports and would like to see all athletic activities and games based upon them banished from the universe. (I kid but...no, no I don't. You all really seem to despise sports.) So none of these: Of course not ALL arcade card games are soccer-themed, even if those are (obviously) the most popular. And although I'm not interested in arcade games myself (the only game I ever play in arcades is Taiko no Tatsujin), it's still worth investigating, if only to realize that there is an entire subcategory of games in Japan that Westerners are never exposed to. https://gamecola.net/2017/05/playing-scannable-card-games-in-japan/ https://www.beastsofwar.com/video-games/tabletop-otaku-arcade-card-games/ http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2018/05/feature_diving_down_the_rabbit_hole_with_japans_arcade-based_trading_card_games

    The retro series of sites (segaretro, sonic retro, nec retro) are another scanning/uploading project. They only accept pdfs though, sadly. You can view their magazine archive here: https://retrocdn.net/Category:Shared_magazine_scans

    I'm not sure whether this is one for RetroMags or not. Arcade Express was a bi-weekly newsletter from Electronic Games only available through the mail. Each issue was eight pages, two 11x17" pages folded in half. I was a subscriber for most of the run but have only come across part of my collection. I have gone ahead and made a RetroMags-formatted archive of the first issue I dug up: http://vgpavilion.com/mags/1983/01/30ae/Arcade-Express-Issue-013-Jan-30-1983.cbr This is Issue 13 from January 30, 1983. These are the issues I currently have in front of me: As Arcade Express Volume 1, Number 14 - February 13, 1983 Volume 1, Number 15 - February 27, 1983 Volume 1, Number 16 - March 13, 1983 Volume 1, Number 17 - March 27, 1983 Volume 1, Number 18 - April 10, 1983 Volume 1, Number 19 - April 24, 1983 Volume 1, Number 20 - May 8, 1983 Volume 1, Number 21 - May 22, 1983 Volume 1, Number 22 - June 5, 1983 Volume 1, Number 24 - July 3, 1983 As Electronic Games Hotline Volume 2, Number 1 - August 14, 1983 Volume 2, Number 2 - August 28, 1983 Volume 2, Number 7 - November 6, 1983 Volume 2, Number 9 - December 4, 1983 Volume 2, Number 10 - December 18, 1983 Volume 2, Number 14 - February 12, 1984 Volume 2, Number 26 - July 20, 1984 While mostly news they did do reviews. It's interesting to line up major announcements with when they appeared in Electronic Games magazine as a function of lead time. I haven't done any searching around the web for previous archival attempts but plan to scan the ones I have. Does this have a place here at RetroMags?

    I thought I was through with Gundam. But when dealing with Japan, you can't ever be through with Gundam. For the PlayStation circa 2000: https://archive.org/details/MobileSuitGundamGihrensGreedBloodOfZeonConquestSideBook

    Hey JhonnyD! Unfortunately I don't have very many more but will try to pick some more up as i catch them at a good price. These weren't bad at all. I have Official Dreamcast Magazine issues so I can knock some of those out. The rest I do not though but like I said if someone wants to mail me some I can work on them. BTW added another Famitsu this morning, #134. https://archive.org/details/WeeklyFamitsuNo134June28th1991

    I actually just read one the other day that blew my mind. It was from a British computer game mag from around 1994. Apparently, in a previous issue's review of a WWII flight sim, they had used the word "Jap" in one of the captions and a member of a Japanese Civil Liberties organization wrote in to tell them that such terminology was offensive. The editor then had the audacity to tell him that he was wrong and that it wasn't offensive - that neither the editor nor anyone on staff considered it an offensive word, it was simply an abbreviation, and emphasized the fact (as if to prove their point) that had the word "Japanese" been used instead, they wouldn't have had room in the caption for the rest of the sentence. As "none of the members on staff is of the age to remember any of the war," they argued, "the word certainly doesn't hold any of the connotations for us as it does for you." They then closed with the classic "I have nothing against the Japanese - in fact, my brother is married to a Japanese girl," which somehow apparently excuses them to be able to use offensive slang, guilt-free, whenever they like. A simple apology would have sufficed, but no, they had to dig the hole deeper. Unbelievable.
