  1. Cover added, hope that I did everything correctly
  2. Ok, will do later (this mean tomorrow or next month )
  3. ahaha, right but it's unedited, THE HORROR It's ok to upload it as it is? I don't know anything about color correction and stuff like that...
  4. This, after PS2 era and with the shift to digital distribution (both of games and information) monthly published printed media lost pretty much any relevance. Sure I would like to see everything scanned and preserved but that's not very realistic giving the amount of stuff out there and how few people are doing this. You wouldn't believe how much stuff they printed in Japan, you can find guides and mooks even for the most obscure games. I'm planning to scan my whole collection but with 2 kids and a job it won't be done anytime soon. BTW Gimp served me well, I'm just using it to piece the pages together, as always I publish my scans raw and unedited in order to maintain my sanity. Here you can find that monstrosity known as Famitsu 571 https://archive.org/details/Famitsu057119991126/ (I think the cover is missing in the gallery)
  5. Thanks to the kitsunebi insights and some gimp trial and error (too cheap for photoshop and their creative cloud subscription nonsense) I managed to get a readable and nice looking of the 2 pages spread I had to cut I probably could have scanned a couple of Gamest issues instead of this whole editing madness luckily the Famitsu issue I scanned has only few of these fold out
  6. There are some trade mags regarding arcade businesses, something like AM Journal, don't recall the exact name
  7. Thanks, will try to look into it when I have time. It looks like I'll have to scan 2 issues each day then
  8. I can find the option to modify document size but can't find the one to remove the autocrop, can you post more details I don't have most of them, same for the gamest mook series, I have a decent but not complete set. I'll scan everything I have first and that's will take forever. I would love to start gathering and scanning all the Famitsu and Famimaga issues but that's probably not gonna happen in this lifetime.
  9. Gamest 3 online, I've scanned a Famitsu issue, these contains some fold out pages that scanned through the scansnap ix500 result in some slightly cut sides. When put together I have some text missing and misaligned images. https://imgur.com/a/oe3cfET I think that I'll need an A3 scanner when I'll decide to scan more Famitus issues
  10. yep, I kinda knew about that link, I just wantt to point out that I have a full set of the regular issues, I don't have all the extra/special issues, so my uploads will have "holes" when it comes to the sequential numbering Currently scanning a Famitsu issue (these are huge ) and Gamest 3
  11. Gamest numbering is all over the place, it includes several special issues like the one you posted, some issues of gamest comics and even totally unrelated stuff later on
  12. for some reason I'm not receving notifications for this thread, anyhow the scans are slowly getting along and I managed to acquire the elusive Issue N.3
  13. Wonder Boy/Adventure Island is the most confusing series ever regarding titles
  14. Scanning some more issues, hope to post them at least 1 each week for the coming weeks
