  6. I've got a copy os Game Player's issue 24 that I can dig out to fix that problem. The other two scans are 11 years old and need to be replaced since they don't look great anyhow. I have marked all three for rescanning. Expert Gamer has been marked for rescan as well. That was scanned two years ago, so I'm not sure if Phillyman still has that issue in a bag somewhere.

    GamePro Issue 171 (December 2002)
  9. I also found five issues of GamePro that I prepped but somehow didn't scan yet. Issues: 173 174 177 181 186 (361 scans)
  10. Also not from the donation pile, but my own GamePros that I prepped but didn't seem to scan yet, issues: 173 174 177 181 186
  11. So it's issue 190 that's not in my pile to scan. So if you happen to have it or issue 200, there's no chance of me scanning them in the next little while. Phillyman has another copy of 190 for me, but he's had it for two years, so it might be a while before I get it EDIT: Add Issue 195 to the list of issues I won't be scanning. My copy is missing four pages.
  12. I'm not doing issue 230 as far as I know. But I received 180-229 in the donation, so chances are they are already prepped and going through scanning for Melki to edit. However, I am not doing issue 200 because some ad insert in the magazine was pretty much glued to a page and I could not separate them with the page tearing apart. So if you have that one, You can work on it without fear of me having prepped it. There is another issue I may not doing. It's either 187 or 190. I stole one of them because it was missing from my collection, but I thinking I definitely pulled the wrong one and sliced up the one I actually needed. I'll let you know tonight.
  13. I'll address some of this The standard height for released scans is 2200 pixels in height (at 300dpi). I should say that is the minimum; if you want to go taller, feel free. I release at 2200 pixels tall but during the editing process create a version that is full size (at 300dpi). This is usually 3240 pixels in height. I have a Photoshop action that does all this for me. Thank you pages are here and come in two sizes: 2200 pixels tall and 3240 pixels tall: https://www.retromags.com/downloads/thankyou_missingpages.zip. If your scans are inbetween this, I think you can just use the full size one and not worry about scaling it down. For subscription cards, they are annoying. I only include them now if one of the actual magazine pages it is with is about subscribing. If it's a card in a random place in the magazine, I toss it and pretend it was never there. I tend to overlay them on a black page, but some people don't bother. I see a benefit to both methods, but I think most people prefer the overlay method. I have never received a complaint about doing it that way. I would include the demo disc sleeve as it's part of the magazine, sort of. I think I would put it at the end. My flatbed scanner software has a magazine setting, so that's what I use. My ADF has document, and I think photo, but I use document. If it has photo, I will give that a test.
  14. I haven't forgotten. I scanned the issue a few nights ago. I just have to actually sit at the computer and find the pages you want.
  15. My favourite was GamePro, mainly because it's the first one I ever read, and the one I could find every month in our small town. I would pick up EGM whenever we went to the city, and while I liked that they seemed to get the jump on news and games a month early, and were generally thicker than GamePro, GamePro was still my favourite. It will always be my favourite, but I recognize that it wasn't the best written magazine, especially in the early days. If you read through the first year or two of issues, the writing is bad, sometimes very bad. I can understand why knowing now that the staff for the magazine was insanely tiny back then. but it doesn't stop you from cringing while reading it. A magazine I only really read through as an adult from being on this site is Video Games & Computer Entertainment. If I had to rate the best 90s magazine to read (and enjoy) as an adult, VG&CE would be my top pick.

    GamePro Issue 146 (November 2000)
  21. I just prepped a huge pile of GamePro issues that I am currently scanning for Melki to edit. So stay away from any GamePros for the time being
  22. Game Informer is sold in most EB Games stores. That is where I would pick it up when I didn't have a subscription (also in Canada, by the way). I have seen Nintendo Power at the Microplay near my place, but they are the later issues and they want $5 each. There's another place that has some old game magazines as well. I get mine from ebay. These days I am only looking for stuff that I can scan for the site since I have most of the magazines that I want.
