    1. Hiya,

      I’ll check but I am pretty sure I do not have that issue in my collection. My NMS AUS collection is pretty sparse I am afraid.

  1. After a few weeks of trying to find this one magazine, i've come to realize now any NMS AUS magazines would be fine!

    Checking out some of your uploads makes me miss the magazines! Love the site. Keep it up!

    1. Well … the file has been downloaded 36 times using that link so I am not sure what is going on. Are you a registered Rapidshare user?

  2. I am a registered user of rapidshare yes, with a 30 day membership. Just tried logging out of rapidshare and trying but it comes up with the same error. All the other files including nms work fine. I’m on my tablet now instead of pc but no luck. Wonder what the problem is.

    J.

    1. Wow that’s strange.

      If I try the link with Chrome as a free user I get “Daily traffic exhausted” while if I try using Internet Explorer using my account I can download the file just fine. NMS 17 has been downloaded 27 times so the link itself appears to be fine. It seems like there is something going on other than that within Rapidshare. Take the latest Zzap!64 issue 44 for example. That has the old style link and has been downloaded 6 times since I uploaded it. Do you get the same problem with that link?

  3. I downloaded zzap issue 44 a few days ago which went ok. Have just downloaded the ‘N64′ mags from 10 to 50. They were all ok except issue 14 which gave the ‘error: share invalid’ message. Earlier today i logged into rapidshare with internet explorer and tried the problem mags but still got the error. I use firefox normally.

    regards,
    J.

  4. Hi guys,

    I have stacks of these NMS magazines that I am looking to part with. Is anyone interested? I would say I have about 50 in mostly good condition (few slight tears, etc as you would expect). E-mail me at jastone@ outlook dot com if you are keen!

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Jason,

      Great to hear you are interested in handing these off, hopefully to one of our scanning guys to get them online over here.

      It would be good for the guys scanning the mags to know the area where you live to work out whether a pickup is viable or whether shipping is the only option. I am in New Zealand for instance so it would be prohibitively expensive to ship there but a couple of the guys are in the UK so depending on where you are it could be a goer for sure.

    2. Hi Jason,

      I most certainly would be interested, will send you an email later on. I’ll pay any postage costs for the mags.

      Do you have any record of which issues you have? I don’t have any myself (i got rid of quite a few long ago), so I would take them all, it just might be useful to know how many need scanning and what we’ve already got preserved.

      Cheers
      Dan

  5. This magazine was half of Mean Machines, which covered all consoles and eventually split into seperate Nintendo and Sega mags. Mean Machines itself came about from being a monthly section in CVG.

  6. Regarding how long this was called Nintendo Magazine System.  I've got all the issues so:-

    Nintendo Magazine System (Issues 1-53)
    Nintendo Magazine (Issues 54-68)
    Nintendo Official Magazine (Issues 69-131)
    Nintendo Official Magazine UK (Issues 132-151)
    Nintendo Official Magazine (Issues 152-162)

  7. Hi Kiwi. Thanks for your help with Nintendo Official Magazine. If anyone happens to have a scan of a specific issue from this magazine, NMS-50, I would really appreciate it. It was the first magazine my mother bought me as a child and would carry a lot of sentimental value, as I'm sure many of these issues do for all of you. The fact that the cover is scanned gives me hope. This was a terrific magazine in its day. My young son is enjoying reading them with me now. Thanks to all that have helped bring these back in digital form!

  8. Thanks A LOT for scanning your magazines in 300 dpi. From your help and issues 43 and 43 of NMS we have an ultra rare art of Earthworm Jim (by Michael Koelsch) in very good quality. I've been searching for it for almost 7 years. That's totally GROOOOOVY!

  9. Hi Dan. Have issues 50 and 51 of NMS been scanned yet? I don't have access to the forum so I can't check if you have uploaded them somewhere other than this site. No worries if you haven't had a chance to scan them yet. Just thought I'd check in on the off chance you see this because of the forum being locked out. Thanks.

    1. Hi Mark,

      I've scanned issue 50, which is awaiting Kiwi to work his editing mastery – unfortunately I haven't got anywhere public I can upload the magazines to, and they need quite a bit of editing work before they're ready for public consumption anyway. Issue 51 is next on my list, which might be this weekend if I get a spare hour or two.

      I try to work on different things to keep myself fresh. NMS is tricky to scan because it's difficult to keep the pages flat.

      I'm sure Kiwi will let you know once the mags are ready.

      Dan

       

      1. That's great Dan. Thanks! Interesting to hear that Kiwi does a lot of editing on the scanned mags. Each issue I have downloaded has looked great. I'm sure a lot of that is also down to the great initial work of scanners like yourself! From what I remember of NMS, I absolutely believe you when you say that it is tricky to scan. I'd say the pages have weakened a lot over the years. For whatver it may be worth, I'd like you to know that you doing this means a lot to me! It'll be a big nostalgia trip for me when they are done. Thanks Dan! :)

  10. I can categorically state that I do not have issue 50 awaiting editing. Are you sure that you uploaded it Dan? As I remember you saying at some point that you had scans ready but were holding off while I worked through the N64 Magazine issues. If you do have other scans including the one mentioned here ready to go by all means fire them through and I'll add them to the list of mags to edit  :-)

    1. Ooops, sorry. I don't think I uploaded that one – my memory has failed me again! I'll get it zipped and sent over tonight – there's a couple of different mags to upload as well.

      Everything I've done so far should be in the folder I shared last month.

      Let me know if you need the link resending.

      Dan

       

      1. Thanks very much Dan! I can't wait to check it out when Kiwi has finished the editing. My sincere thanks to both of you! Hopefully issue 51 will be possible in the future as well, but 50 is fantastic. :)

      2. Hi Dan,

        I found the email with your upload directory and am grabbing all your scans down now but I cannot see NMS #50 in there. Can you upload it to your UL account and as soon as I see it I will download it.

        Cheers …. Kiwi

        1. Hey Kiwi,

          I've not managed to get it uploaded yet, but not through lack of trying! Am having difficulty as my connection keeps dropping out, I think I'll have to do it at work, but that won't be until Monday at the earliest.

          Sorry guys!

          Dan

           

          1. Well, after a whole day of uploading at 20k/s – don't worry I was doing other things whilst uploading, I just let my computer do all the work – the mags should finally be uploaded – phew!

            Let me know if you have any problems Kiwi.

            Dan
