  4. I've let them know those things. I can't say whether they'll take any notice.
  5. I messaged It's Fantastic on Twitter about this. Let's see what they say. Edit: They've been in touch and are open to these suggestions. Great news!
  6. I'm trying to track down the issues of Game Lab that featured listings for "GAME BASIC for SEGA SATURN", see below image for example (from this defunct blog, whose owner is incommunicado). Some dates I have: 1998-06-25 GAME BASIC release 1999-10-09 one of three source listings confirmed as published Can anybody shed any light on this? Any thoughts @kitsunebi or @JhonnyD? Thanks in advance!

  8. For me the biggest barrier when taking part is editing to meet the high standards of RetroMags. Of course those standards should be in place, but they are a high bar to pass and most will give up on the way.
  9. Frank just announced he's going to be live streaming the scanning tomorrow. https://www.patreon.com/posts/34953123
  10. I scanned a book and my 4 year old was in charge of restocking the feeder. Worked a treat!
  11. *raises hand* I think it's worthy of praise, though I've never played it as it's not my idea of a good time. The main thing about Elite was that it was a trailblazer for procedural generation, and by using it they managed to fit their entire "universe" (8 galaxies, 256 planets) in the minuscule portion of the available 32KB RAM. The gameplay was interesting with a fair amount of depth in the trading and missions, though I'm dubious how novel that aspect was. Some claim that it laid the groundwork for open world games. I am slightly too young to have played it myself at the time, but I was aware my folks played it on our Acorn Electron (a BBC-comaptible whose version of Elite was slightly neutered). At the time it made a huge splash, the UK scene was on fire at the time and this was one of the best games to come out of that period. I don't know if it'd hold up today, when there are more modern sequels or alternatives to be played. *shrugs*
  12. Compare your download with this one: Thoughts appreciated.
