    "PC Gamer" UK edition, issue 73, September 1999.

    Yeah, I'm way too busy scanning mags and content for my website to spend large chunks of my time over here nowadays. Feel free to PM me but I'm not going to be reading them on a daily basis, or even weekly truth be told.

    Yes I do have this issue and it is already online over at my website however, it is now a closed community and has been for a while. If he PAYPAL's a few bucks as a donation and creates an account using his PAYPAL email address I will activate it and he will have access to the 4000+ files on the site including this issue.

    Request

    Well ..... I own a boatload of magazines. I am therefore one of the "anyone's" but I don't sub classify myself myself as one of the "usually's"

    Request

    Unfortunately the "anyone's" with the physical copies usually have no desire to spend the time scanning them

    Your top 5 gaming mags

    That would be, in order by date: CVG - the second real multi-format magazine I owned after Computer Gamer which I actually preferred but it died after a couple of years (these mags were from the photo the screen age) Amiga Format - sure there were dedicated Amiga games mags but they just weren't as good as this as far as I was concerned Computer Gaming World - started getting these after they went PC only. Absolutely loved them until I found ..... PC Gamer (USA) - I bought the first 80 or so issues when Imagine were publishing them. The Future versions just don't cut it compared to those early issues. PC Format - WTF you say? I hear you but having won an auction with lots of early issues I am really getting a kick out of reading the game reviews from a retro perspective. They are great and the magazine feels like the spiritual successor to Amiga Format in every way that counted compared to it's cousin PC Gamer (UK)

    KiwiArcader's Work In Progress

    Dreamcast Official Magazine (Japan) issue 068 is now available over at Kiwis.World. This issue is one of the missing issues over at SegaRetro so big thanks go out to Cuckooguy (GunyenTony) for the donation of his print copy.

    Any scanners in the UK?

    Absolutely agree. Each to their own. scotto10 needs to work out what is acceptable to him then come up with a plan for getting scans to his desired level. However, he was asking for guides to do so when, as I stated, guides are really dependent on what software, both scanning and editing, that he is using along with the aforementioned levels he is prepared to go to obtain the output he wants. He didn't provide any information on anything other than he can access a FI-6770. I'd wager I am the only one here with a Fujitsu A3 scanner of that model, mine being a FI-5650c, so as far as their use is concerned I might be his best bet......

    Any scanners in the UK?

    Creating a guide is entirely subjective and depends entirely upon the software you have access to vs that which is being used by someone else with a Fujitsu scanner. No point asking for someone using Quickscan if you are using something else entirely. E.G, Quickscan uses ISIS drivers and allows you to create individual profiles for different paper sizes (A4, Letter or even customer pages sizes for those weird sized UK mags) and allows for bulk scanning whereas TWAIN is essentially a page at a time scanning. Then there is the whole editing side of things. Some people like Meppi, or Kitsunebi77 like to edit the pages so they look like a digital copy which slows down outputting magazines but they look very nice. Others like myself, who used to work to similar levels, decided to perform a certain amount of processing only. That way we make a lot more magazines available faster, but they don't like as nice. It really depends on your personal thoughts on what level you wish to go to then adopting a plan to make it work for you.

    Why do you visit Retromags?

    Haha, Yeah I know mate. Was just kidding around with you. I do have several PC Gamer USA's and a whole lot of UK issues to scan but I'm kinda trying to clear out my console mags as I don't really like them and just want them into recycling so the A4 scanner is taking a proverbial beating at present. The fact I'd have to debind those lovely mags to scan is also playing on my mind although I wrote off a $80 copy of Automobile Year scanning it the other day so quite why I have a hang up on debinding those PC Gamer's is a wee tad weird right?

    Why do you visit Retromags?

    I wonder that was aimed at me?

    Awesome!! I liked this magazine more than PC Gamer. Had heaps of these too at one point until I dumped them. Sigh!!!
