  1. The PC Engine Fan magazines i think came from a rutracker.org torrent. The pdfinfo on some of the files say it came from pcenginefx.com. From what i can tell retrocdn is hosted these (PC Engine Fan) files untouch. Torrent link below for you to check: https://rutracker.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5093461 @KiwiArcader It gets odder with other projects that your pdfs show up like TOSEC-PIX. TOSEC-PIX remove metadata from your pdfs like for example the Edge magazine (AU) files. They have a 'baking method' before including files into there database files and its just weird cause the metadata removal is not done with everything. I also prefer the original files for checksum/filesize checking. Anyways i figure you would want to know about that.
  2. You should tell that guy that some of those magazines could have pages missing or are out of order. It depends on the years he has also. Issues pass 1995 are not on archive.org and issues before 1984-12 are also not.
  3. So here are 4 scans i have done this past week. First one is the Gamepro Greatest Strategies for fall/winter 2003. (This is the Vice City guide from gamepro someone was looking for here). The other 3 magazines are PC Computing. You will have to wait on 1993-11 issue cause its very damage. https://archive.org/details/pc-computing-magazine-v6i9 https://archive.org/details/pc-computing-magazine-v6i10 https://archive.org/details/pc-computing-magazine-v6i12 I hope this is very help to you guys.
  4. I figure i should put up some of the random scans i just scanned this morning for you guys to see. First is Everything about Sewing book called Fur and Fur-Like Fabrics from 1971. https://archive.org/details/everything-about-sewing-fur-and-fur-like-fabrics-1971 Here is a book about taking care of your Land Hermit Crabs from 1976: https://archive.org/details/land-hermit-crabs-by-paul-j-nash-1976-tfh Here is a Holiday Crafts magazine from 1983 i found also: https://archive.org/details/holiday-crafts-1983 Want to learn about taking taking care of a Parakeet, there is a book for that here: https://archive.org/details/learning-about-parakeets-budgies-1980-pet-library Last book i got is about caves. https://archive.org/details/cave-life-1965-nas So there are the 5 scans i did today. If you want to show your support for my scans you can donate to my patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/godane I hope to scan more odd things later this month.
  5. I did some crazy scans awhile back of Scubapro Diving and Snorkeling magazine. I also have done world war and military history magazines. I done 272 scans and not all are computer/gaming books. I made a list posted it on github for you guys to find them all. Here is the the link below: https://github.com/godane/godane-scan-magazines-books I have done some scans like Disney Adventure magazine for example also.
  6. I have been downloading the jpg files that you find when looking at the jp2.zip in zip file viewer. Example of what i mean: https://archive.org/download/NeoGeoFreak28199709/Neo Geo Freak 28 1997-09_jp2.zip/ By have the / at the end of a zip or tar you can view the images. But with jp2.zip file you get the original jp2 files and a jpg file. The jpg files are smaller then jp2 files and the resolution is about the same as retromags.com files size i think. One images i just download from there is 2466x3029. i think we go 2700 for height so these are bit bigger but not by much. Once i download them i can make a pdf using img2pdf on linux. Anyways i hope this helps.
  7. I noticed what you mean about retrocdn releasing slight edits of existing pdfs. For example there is a torrent of Dreamcast Magazine pdf i download from retrocdn.net. Turns out you can find those magazines on rutorrent and there smaller then on retrocdn.net puts up. We are talking 65.2mb for the rutracker one and 95.6mb for the retrocdn.net one. This is based on the size of issue 1 of that magazine. I'm still not finding out who uploaded them but i think i found closer source then retrocdn.net. One thought is that maybe these files are scanned and are on the Perfect Dark network. That maybe a place to a least try and look.
  8. So here is ebay user called japan-goods-hunter that has tons of japanese magazines that i figure you guys would want to scan. The price is very high but i figure i could at least posted if there is anything close to normal pricing. Or at least maybe make a lower offer for some the magazine sets. https://www.ebay.com/sch/Magazine-Back-Issues/280/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=&_ssn=japan-goods-hunter&_sac=1
  9. Here is one magazine you guys don't have. New Computer Express. Some guy on uploaded a ton of them on archive.org. Here is the link: https://archive.org/search.php?query=subject%3A"New+Computer+Express+Weekly+Computer+Magazine+from+the+uk" It needs some editing to be done on it also the original file size is way to big for retromags i think. You can just convert it down by 50%. The editing part is just making sure stuff is not tilled when its tilled and make the pages not have stuff past the binding thats for the previous page. If anything this magazine is not one retromags at all so it make a good start project for some one here.
  10. Thanks for this issue. PS But i have noticed page/file 55 as a game.com ad for the front page of the Saturn section and i can't find the un-blurred page. Also page 29 and 30 look to be a black-and-white copy for some reason. Just letting you know.
  11. The only magazine company i know in the USA that releases full unedit magazines is Sandhills Publishing Company. They release all issues every month as pdf for free. And the back catalog i was able to grab goes back to 2004-06. Sadly they don't go back any further then that for full issues. Here is one collection of computer power user here.
  12. hi I'm chris 26 years old. I'm grabing magazines to put in torrents on Underground gamer if its not there.
