  3. Okay good to know, there's another thing that bothered me btw, when I scanned them perfectly against the corner of my scanner it still looked like the image was at a slight tilt or angle due to the pages or where I took the pages out of the binding, it's left with these frill looking things sticking out where it was in the binding. I did a ton of touch up on the actual pages themselves I just haven't for the cover, I just became super self conscience about mine after looking at the latest magazines that got scanned. I'll clean up the top a bit more, but I should probably hold off on declaring this thing complete until I can rescan the back of the cover with the sticker off. Rookie mistake. I peeled off the sticker carefully and it of course uplifted a tiny bit of the yellow background but nothing I can't digitally fix. Currently my digital version looks a lot better than the actual condition it's in, recreating some of the corners where a page was torn was a pain but rewarding. I didn't know if it would get accepted but glad to know you guys also put in the time to do that. If I may ask, is there a specific copier you suggest for the best results, as I need to get a new one anyway.
  4. I don't know how to put the pages in WIP or PDF format btw but I put it in CBR format and have the pages uploaded separately but provided them in one 7zip file. If there are any changes that I need to make please let me know. I'm sure I could clean up the cover a bit more digitally but I don't know if that's frowned upon if I have to digitally remove any blemishes since this wasn't a brand new guide I debinded.
  5. Okay I know it's a year later but I moved back to my home state and I just found my USB stick with all my scans yesterday. I would have just rescanned but I don't have access to a copier/printer as of yet. Here are my results, if anyone is familiar with the process of how I can help get this added to the site I'd be more than happy to contribute this. It took me roughly 10 hours total for all the work put into it, as initially some of the pages were pretty beat up. This guide goes for around 90 brand new and I got a used copy last year for $25 so I think I got a pretty good deal, most of the pages were in decent enough condition and I worked hard on it, I'm proud of the results. Enjoy. https://drive.google.com/open?id=15zBOgetXf7RWTe7msRwVw-diRoMINqAa
  6. Everything is cropped/straightened correctly, all that's left are fixing any blemishes. If anyone wants to take a look at it so far let me know.
  7. So far I have debinded my official guide of paper mario thousand year door and am currently scanning all pages. I'm following the guides in the how to. Just posting this to let others know this is currently in progress.
  8. Okay thank you, I'll edit the files according to the guidelines and put them into the .cbr format. My friend's hair dryer is on her last leg so I'll have to get my own.
  9. Hello everyone, I was going through the Video Game Guides and noticed that Paper Mario: The Thousand Year door was missing. Finding it on other sites, I noticed that the quality of the scans were crap compared to some of the high quality scans I've seen on Retromags. I purchased the Official Guide from Nintendo Power Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door, and my friend is coming over later today with her hair dryer so I can take apart the guide and scan each page individually with my own scanner. I was wondering who I might have to get in contact with in order to get this thing uploaded or sent in a winrar or zipped file after I'm done scanning them.
  10. If I were to list my favorite Star Wars movies from best to worst, they would have to be Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope Star Wars Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Star Wars Episode VI - Return of the Jedi Rogue One - A Star Wars Story Star Wars Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Star Wars Episode VII - The Force Awakens Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace Star Wars Episode II - Attack of the Clones My reasoning for this is, if I'm getting to the point, is that episodes 4 5 and 6 have the most consistency throughout the movies. Rogue One explains how they got the plans to the death star and how the Rebels could figure out how to destroy something so massive.. I loved Rogue one and have already seen it 3 times in theaters. I loved the action in Episode 3, I get goosebumps every time I see the final battle. Star Wars Episode 7 just.. idk, I saw it multiple times in theaters, it got great ratings, I love it for bringing the Star Wars franchise back, I just didn't think it was as great as so many people claim it is. Star Wars Episode 1.. Jar Jar. Star Wars Episode 2 just felt like a love story.
  11. I'm 26 now, so I'm going to go with embarrassingly late age, like I just turned 9 in August and got it for christmas. That was the last time I did it too I think lol we all did it, oh well
  12. omg you're the best, I've been trying to remember the name of this for years on and off when I randomly remember it! I remember one time I made something for my dad to see when he came home late from work but ended up falling asleep and wetting the bed and idk if he ever saw it. I remember messing around with it though and wishing I had a printer, but I used to spend hours playing with it!
  13. When a title says Acquired, does this mean that somebody has the magazine and plans to upload it, they just haven't gotten to it yet?
  14. Sorry, you guys just let anyone edit including new members? I'd be happy to help edit, I have experience animating with studio pro 8 and editing with paint.net, which is pretty much like photoshop, I just don't have photoshop. What do you do to these scans in particular, just make sure they're all straightened out and have the same lighting? I have an interest I just don't know where to apply towards editing scanned magazines.
  15. What's up you guys, I saw that Emuparadise already has a scan of Paper Mario Thousand Year Door but they didn't do a very good job, the guide was still together so information that goes into the spine is dark, some are crooked, so I just got the last Nintendo Power guide for under 20. Then I noticed that for some reason there's a Players choice and was wondering what the difference was? Also if anyone has any recommendations as far as which heat gun they use, that'd be great! I'll be getting a heat gun when I come back from vacation. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=paper+mario+thousand+year+door+guide
  16. Thank you so much for the video, I was looking for something like this! I'll make sure to save this.
  17. On the front of the cover it says Sonic Adventure vivid expose. This is the first magazine I've ever seen mention Sonic Adventure on the front cover, however I have yet to get to the Sega magazines yet. I'm not even sure what Sega called their magazines, but back then yeah I'd expect games to first be announced through stuff like this, nintendo power, etc. before I heard about it on the internet. I know there was a limited edition of Sonic Adventure that people could rent from hollywood video stores before the initial launch, I just don't know when the game was first announced or revealed, or through what.
  18. Why would you rename all the other movies to Rogue whatever when it'd just be easier to rename Rogue One as Episode 3.5.
  19. oh yeah all of that was fine, it's the "girl gets saved by guy who supposidly died" that was SO LAME, they could have did something better with that.
  20. Yeah I guess that's true, I guess it's different for me since I have time to kill inbetween classes at college so for me this means taking my switch to school while waiting for class and since I live in the city I'm better off staying at college for an additional 2 hours for traffic to die down, do homework, and play the Nintendo Switch while waiting. I have disability and the post 9/11 GI Bill so college for me basically is part of my income haha but for those who take public transportation or waiting for a flight, or even if you're just going over to a buddy's place, it's going to have two controllers at all times for local multiplayer, so idk I just hope it does well and succeeds.
  21. Great idea.. does anyone by chance remember a really old pokemon art game? It had a bunch of stamps and boarders and there was a red version of the box and blue box, this was also around the same time lion king had a cd where you could play pinball with timon and puumba, I can't even remember if it was for windows 95 or linux.
  22. They only have up to 169, not all of them.
