  1. Gave it a go, and no problems at all. Average of 1.8 M/sec, no fails. I won't question it. Thanks for the help!
  2. Hello. I've been having problems with several recent new releases downloading very slowly, and failing after about 1/4 through the process. While some have succeeded after several attempts (Flux # 3), others are failing no matter what. The main problematic ones are GamePro #144, Expert Gamer #58, and Game Player's Sega Genesis Strategy Guide V 2 # 1. I am using Windows 10, 8 MB ram. Firefox 66. I have cleared site data, reduced numbers of tabs, closed other online apps, and even tried Chrome (also failed). Up until now, I have never had a downloading issue with Retromags. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  3. Interesting. This and a couple of the other new releases keep failing midway through the download. Must be something on my end, then. Thanks for letting me know.
  4. Thanks for uploading this. It looks interesting, but... Has anyone else been having problems downloading this?
  5. Believe it or not, I sincerely hope there's more of these. Really, though, you guys went all out on this. Good work!
  6. They are, I confirmed with someone doing an eBay auction. There's apparently also an adapter that lets it work on Dreamcast. Thanks for the help.
  7. Hello! I just got a US (NTSC) Sega Saturn, and I'm also still missing the fun I had playing sit-down-cabinet Virtual On at MAGFest. I'm thinking about getting the Twin Sticks that were released for the Japanese Saturn, but I would like to know if this controller will work on the US (NTSC) Saturn, or only on the Japanese model. If not directly, is there some adaptor or bypass (like an Action Replay) that makes it work? Thank you. --Keith
  8. Thanks for fixing that! I've been wanting this magazine for a long time (ever since I lent it to a friend for the Real Bout Fatal Fury article).
  9. Hello. EGM2 Issue #21 is listed as Preserved, but the download link redirects to FilePlanet. It then says the file is missing. Just wanted to make it known. Thanks.
  10. Hello again. I checked a download link for one of the magazines, and I'm still being directed to FileFactory. I was wondering if I'm doing something wrong (I have updated the address since the move), or if the project was delayed. Thanks for any info.
  11. Great to hear it! For those of us who don't use Facebook or Twitter, will the Retromags URL still be the same?
  12. There were two: Alien Crush and Devil's Crush. Alien Crush came first. Both were basically pinball on a living table, with AC having a two-level table plus bonus stages, while DC's table was three level's tall (fairly sure it had bonus stages too). AC featured aliens, naturally, while DC had demons (including a woman's face that gradually turned into that of a reptilian demon).
  13. So it isn't available, then? That's unfortunate. I was hoping to read the coverage on Shadowrun SNES and the Tom Dowd interview. Ah well, I shall hold out hope.
  14. Hello. Game Players Nintendo Guide Issue 47 (March 1993, Mega Man 5 on the cover) is listed as "Preserved," but no download link is present. Thanks for looking into this.
  15. It's certainly a safer way to go than the risk of identity compromising and potential litigation, too. That always makes me gunshy about subscribing to a download service. $14 a year is a whole lot better than $8 a month, too. Guess the next questions are, would there be any special bonuses for the people who do the donation toward the server cost, and how do we go about donating?
  16. I'm getting this message consistently when trying to download something: Server Load Too High The server hosting this file is temporarily overloaded. You can download this file immediately by upgrading to FileFactory Premium. Alternatively, you can try again shortly. Please contact support if you require further assistance. I'm following the rules for magazine downloads for the number of posts I've done (I'm still under 25, so I'm sticking to one a day like I'm supposed to). But it's for naught if the external service isn't functioning properly, or worse, if FileFactory is doing this intentionally to hustle paid subscriptions out of people. I understand the benefits, but when I'm being directed there for a free download, it comes off as a hard sell tactic. Any ideas as to what's going on with FileFactory? Thanks.
  17. Before I saw this thread, I didn't even realize EGM was still around in any form. I picked it up once in a while if they had a good strategy spread on something (I remember one on Real Bout Fatal Fury that had some cool artwork in it), but to be honest, they were never my favorite of the magazines. There were too many occasions where they reported incorrect information or unfounded rumors; they seemed to be the National Enquirer of video game magazines. Have they gotten better over the years?
  18. My first 16-bit system was a TG-16. It had a special place in my family, given that the pack-in game was Keith Courage in Alpha Zones. Keith is my first name, and the healing character in the game, Nurse Nancy, shares my mother's name. It made for a pretty cool family adventure. Bonk's Adventure, Bloody Wolf, and Splatterhouse were personal favorites of mine.
  19. There's another aspect to the lack of included manuals. Tutorials in-game have replaced them, and often I feel like I'm being talked down to during the course of the game (yes, game, I gathered that I need to press the analog stick to move). Worse, programming time and space has to be devoted to putting the tutorial in, often ruining game flow. I like controls and commands available via the pause menu, but I also like a physical manual. Skyrim, for example, had a physical manual I keep right under my monitor for quick control reference. As for cost and waste, the book industry has the game industry beaten by a mile. I mean, the Twilight series alone...
  20. Wow, I remember that issue like it was yesterday. This site (and its contributors) are awesome.
  21. Figured it was worth a try, considering some of the issues still aren't lined out. Though you're probably right.
  22. Hello! I was wondering if this was still an active offer, as it were. Thanks.
