    E-day's Work In Progress

    I am going to attempt to use my old, slow flatbed scanner to scan: GamePro Issue 90 (labeled 100) January 1997. I'm not sure how it will turn out - if it turns out - but we'll see!

    I forgot about that. Maybe I'll let that one site around for a while and concentrate on other stuff.

    Two more small supplements scanned, edited and released. As well, something more substantial, Mega Play Vol. 3 No. 6 from January 1993 (scan #291). Up next will be a Resident Evil comic that I scanned, as well as issue of Antic that Phillyman scanned that I want to edit before I start scanning GamePro magazines for Melki to edit

    Phillyman's Work In Progress...

    Just be sure that as part of the scanning process you review all the scans and make sure none of the pages are missing, extremely crooked or went in funny causing digital smearing on the page before you toss the scanned pages into the recycling. That way in three years if someone is editing a scan they don't have to stop because one of the pages needs to be rescanned and no one has the issue to rescan that one page.

    kitsunebi77's random stuff

    You're comparing a serious news journal magazine or newspaper to a magazine which is entertainment focused first and foremost. It's supposed to be a fun publication to read, not serious journalism, which is a problem I have with a lot of game sites and magazines these days. So whether the person writing it uses their real name or a pseudonym with a cartoon avatar, as long as the review is accurate and true, that's all that matters. And when it came the genres I liked, GamePro was spot on for me.

    To each their own. I was always been the type of person who didn't actually want to know any personal information about the lake who wrote in the magazines I read. I didn't even want to invite what they looked like because I always had my own idea of who they were. That's one reason I want a fan of Game Players. Seeing the writers pictures annoyed me.
  15. I have no clue about either of those questions, sorry.

    kitsunebi77's random stuff

    Not quite. Scary Larry's real name is Lawrence Neves. And Mike Weigand, who you can see as a review crew member from that EGM page scan, wrote as Major Mike and other names in GamePro. GamePro used pseudonyms to cover up the fact that it was a very small staff in the early years. So each writer would have two or three pseudonyms they would write under in each magazine, making the staff look much larger. It's a bit silly looking back on it, but those pseudonyms were part of the magazine's charm. And none of them seem to be ashamed of their work at GamePro, as shown by this info box on Lawrence Neves' Facebook page.

    On The Topic of PDF Exploits

    Files that are uploaded to the Retromags download manager can be reported, but because this was submitted by a user to file locker sites, there is no way to report it. This user links are also not vetted by us as far as I know; only files directly uploaded to the site are. I can take a look at the file and possibly create a cbr from it, or see if I have a different format for this file already. Is always a good idea to proceed with caution when it comes to user links.

    CZUR Aura scanner

    Had anyone heard of the CZUR Aura scanner? It seems very new as it hasn't launched yet. It's similar to those other scanners that take pictures rather than scanning the traditional way. I'm Chris about the quality of the output. http://getaura.czur.com/aura/

    CZUR Aura scanner

    It was an experiment that didn't really work well because of the layouts and colours used, which is unfortunate.
