  1. 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!
  2. I feel kind of dumb starting one of these threads. I doubt there's going to be a lot of overlap with what I scan and other people's collections, so it shouldn't be necessary to make my progress known to anyone. However, I figured this would be a good place for me to ask some questions to more experienced members. 1st: I just uploaded my scan of Famitsu 158 here: https://mega.nz/#!FA5DCYwS!Y1zBRmvWZQPq9AbWrmL9-VMLkWHUpcIAkZWc5MYHoIY and added the download link to the database page. However, I don't see any download link. Is that something someone else has to approve before it shows up? (edit: I accidentally posted a link requiring a key at first. I replaced it with an unrestricted link, but it still doesn't show up on the database page) 2nd: related to the first, how does one go about posting an uploaded mag in the new releases category? The Famitsu database is 60 pages long. Without a new release post or a listing in the download section (yeah, how about that?), no one is ever gonna stumble across my user link by browsing through 60 pages of mostly (for now) blank entries. 3rd: This relates to my scan of Famitsu #1 which I haven't uploaded yet. I want some opinions first: The original mag sells for hundreds of dollars (or, like the last time I saw it, in a 1400 issue collection for $25,000 lol). So scanning the original is not gonna happen. I bought a reproduction of the first issue. It's identical except for a gray border on the pages where there are occasionally notes of interest about the contents of the page. The reprint is half the physical dimensions of the real mag, but when scanning at 600dpi, it isn't really that big of a problem (although the actual printing quality might be a bit hurt because of it.) At any rate, I figure it's the best we'll ever have of a historically important issue. Here's my problem/question: The cover of the reproduction is in bad shape. Not torn, but very faded and with some water damage. It was not the sort of thing fixable by mere clone stamping. For my own personal satisfaction, I created a nicer looking cover by repainting it (the cartoon graphics are very simple with no shading or gradients, so filling in solid colors works just fine). There's still some spaces around the Japanese text where the paint can't fix it, but overall it's far more pleasant to look at. Of course, it isn't an authentic representation of what was scanned (but then neither is using clone stamp or whatever to repair damage or blemishes.) For that reason, I also include the actual scanned cover as the page following the repainted cover. When I upload it, should I leave the nice cover out or keep them both? Opinions? Hopefully the scan of 158 I linked to above shows what my scans will look like from now on. Issue 1 suffers in qulity a bit due to issues out of my control, but I'd like it to be presented as best as possible. Thanks in advance for any advice!
  3. Next Generation Issue 020 August 1996 COMPLETED! ETA = June 14/15 2007
  4. So far I have debinded my official guide of paper mario thousand year door and am currently scanning all pages. I'm following the guides in the how to. Just posting this to let others know this is currently in progress.
  5. Update 2016: Thank you visiting my WIP page! You can view and download all of my scans from my Internet Archive page and if you'd like to help you can visit my patreon page. Official Sega Dreamcast Magazine (US) Issue 2 November 1999 - Now Available!
  6. Hi everyone, Now that I am back from "exile" I am once again in the scanning mood and ready to contribute magazines from my collection of old magazines. As such expect to see a lot of Atari and Amiga magazines over the coming months. Titles include Atari or Amiga Format, ANTIC [one of which has already been uploaded] and Computer Gamer, C&VG and The Games Machine issues. I have also just uploaded some magazines I previously submitted that were deleted after I left last time. If any old-timers like gizmomelb have any particular issues they want scanned feel free to contact me and I'll see what I can do to fulfil the request.
  7. I have listed these here in the hope that some kind soul has the time and patience to edit these (cropping etc) as I sadly don't have the time at the moment. Note that you will need to click the download pdf button as the quality is much higher in the pdf than the pages you can see on the site. Total Control 01 The cover needs re-scanned as my scanner doesn't support the shiny silver: http://read.oldgamemags.com/Ali/Needs%20Edit/Total%20Control/Total%20Control%2001%20(Publisher).pdf/#page/2 PC Gamer (2002-Xmas) 117 (Future) http://read.oldgamemags.com/Ali/Needs%20Edit/PCGamer/PC%20Gamer%20(2002-Xmas)%20117%20(Future).pdf/#page/2 PC Gamer (2003-02) 119 (Future) http://read.oldgamemags.com/Ali/Needs%20Edit/PCGamer/PC%20Gamer%20(2003-02)%20119%20(Future).pdf/ PC Gamer (2004-07) 137 (Future) http://read.oldgamemags.com/Ali/Needs%20Edit/PCGamer/PC%20Gamer%20(2004-07)%20137%20(Future).pdf/ I will update this as I scan more
  8. I just noticed that my thread for posting my work has been archived, so I'll start a new one. Is it not possible to "unarchive it" so I can have one thread for all of my work? Fusion, August 1995 Info/download page - https://archive.org/details/Fusion-Magazine-1995-08 Fusion, January 1996 Info/download page - https://archive.org/details/Fusion-1996-01
  9. Hello all, My posts have seemed kind of nit-picky recently (missing magazines, missing scans, etc) so here's something a bit more positive. On deck to be preserved, Turbo Force #3 (January 1993): If all goes well I'll be scanning more saddle-stitched magazines in the coming months. Perhaps with a focus on Video Games & Computer Entertainment but I'll likely mix things up to keep things interesting. I'll have a better idea once I have an opportunity to dig into my collection. Cheers, RetroDefense
  10. So I decided to help get our EGM collection complete, I acquired a lot of stuff and sent a lot to E-Day. But I am going to try and scan some of this stuff myself. And try my hand at editing. I purchased a Canon LiDE 220 scanner. It doesn't have a huge bed. But big enough for magazines.mbut it outputs excellent color and is fast. Uses LED lamp so no warmup times. My first issue I'm scanning is EGM 07 the Top Score issue with the codes. I've completed scanning. Now on to editing. I've messed around a it and found straightening and cropping to be pretty fast. And the clone stamp has been working well for fixing blemishes. The colors came out so good I'm not sure if I'll have to color correct much if at all. I'll probrably go through and crop and fix blemishes and straighten first. Then I'll post some images here to get some opinions on color correction options and contrast adjustments before app,using them. Any advice on photoshop corrections would be appreciated ahead of time to get me started. Or just wait till I post some screenshots and give me some feed back. I'm scanning in 500 dpi because it's fairly quick with this scanner. When I'm done editing I plan to resize the images to 1600 pixels wide. Is this still a good standard to use. Should I do more or less. Files sizes maybe could get bigger with the times. But let me know what the site still reccomend and I'll go with that.
