  2. Phillyman's Work In Progress...

    He did comment to Jason of Archive back in June, so its only been 16 weeks since we last heard from him. Who knows, he could pop up tomorrow and drop out 100 magazines as a surprise.
  3. Phillyman's Work In Progress...

    Actually I may still have the Dreamcast magazines on hand, its been so long, but I did send him two boxes of magazines with the remainder of the images above. I don't think Marktrade ran off with the magazines, and I still hold out hope for a flash drive full of scanned pages to show up in my mailbox one afternoon
  4. Phillyman's Work In Progress...

    This is everything I sent Marktrade, not sure what he scanned so far. A few months after sending these off Mark stopped uploading items to Retromags and started to just dump his scans onto Archive.

Er...why not just stand on the left side of the screen and, you know, shoot them? Lots of spelling/grammar errors in the Gauntlet entry ('know' instead of 'now', 'them' instead of 'then', etc...). No mention of the fact you have to beat Ghosts 'N' Goblins twice, guys? For shame... The editors also seem to have trouble differentiating between 'loose' and 'lose'. The screenshot for Legend of Kage where it claims Kage has been killed by alerted guards is actually a shot of him reading the Scroll item, which results in a torrential rain of dead enemies.

  13. Phillyman's Work In Progress...

    Fair enough, at the moment I will just hide the User Download links from being populated. I only included Archive because that was where Marktrade was placing his items and he was linking to Archive for them. I will still move forward on linking to active publishers that we can still subscribe to with either physical or digital versions. What is still active, maybe 15 different magazines between the USA and UK at the moment....if that?
  14. Phillyman's Work In Progress...

    Good catch! I fixed it
  15. Phillyman's Work In Progress...

    I cleaned up the Magazine Database and Download Manager over the last few days. Using the matching MD5 records between them I was able to do the following.... In the Download Manager now anything that is available via torrent now states what Torrent package it is in Also on the Download Manager page I have dropped in the corresponding Database Record links to 99% of the files in that section. I just need to manually do the PDF versions and Strategy Guides at this point. Now you can get to the Magazine Database from the Download Manager, and vice versa! On the Magazine Database side, I fixed up the Official Download links, many of them were still pointing to the address.....and while it will auto resolve, I figured I might as well clean them up in mass. You will also notice that I dropped in torrent links for everything that has been released via torrent. The torrent links will download the torrent file that contains the magazine you are looking for. So if you go to Nintendo Power Issue 2 in the Magazine Database, the torrent link on that page will download the 2017 Base Torrent Pack 9 which contains that issue. My next item is to get rid of the "Retromags User Download" links above (done). With me rolling up the entire Retromags collection from our Download Manager and dumping it onto torrents and Usenet, the User Provided links to FileFactory, 4Shared and other third party file hosting services will surely result in out of date versions and broken links. We will be deleting the existing data for those 3 fields (after a backup) and then changing them to the following..... I will be reaching out to the admins of these sites and a few others to gather some spreadsheets of what they have already preserved. We can then mass import the links to their download pages and mark those records as "Preserved" so that users can get an overall view of what has been preserved digitally across all of these sites.
