Ultra Game Players …

marktrade released raw scans of several issues of this title some time ago. Before I could get onto it Retromags member Depressor has edited and released them. With his permission I am releasing them here. As a result issue 103 is now available.

What I have altered from his version is:

  • I cleaned up the cover a lot as it was quite damaged and removed the spine from the front cover scan
  • Placed the supplemental pages back where they were situauted in the magazine according to marktrade's original scans instead of the back of the PDF where Depressor had placed them. Nothing problematic, it's just that I prefer the magazine to include content where it was situated in the magazine where possible
  • Adjusted the vertical height in pixels so all pages are the same for better dual page viewing

Feel free to grab this here if you like a PDF version or visit Retromags if you prefer CBR/CBZ iterations.

Compute! …

Jason's collection is thinning out thanks to all the scanning he has done over the last year or two so we're starting to get into scanning the classics. 🙂

First up we have issue 87 of this multi-format magazine

Site Updates …

If you have been visiting pages which have content served by a "Direct Download" button you will have noticed that it goes nowhere. It would appear that Ali's server is down or he has decided to delete the OGM files. I have no issues with this at all as I haven't uploaded new content to that server for months now after I couldn't synch to it and decided to use Mediafire instead.

As a result of this I will start to trawl through all the affected pages over the coming days and remove and replace the link with the appropriate Mediafire directory links. Thanks for your patience while I do this …..

Computer Games: Strategy Plus …

The PC magazine deluge continues with me going dyslexic and releasing issue 185 as well.

As I no longer have Nintendo or multi-format mags from donators the next few weeks will be very heavily PC oriented while I get the thirty or so issues of this title scanned. Then I can get back to editing Dan's and marktrade's raw scans.

Issue 158 is up next. While maybe not quite as good as PC Gamer (USA) these are still a really nice little magazine and well worth the effort preserving them digitally. It's remarkable that it ran for so long in such a crowded market.

Commodore Microcomputers …

With Mediafire web uploads not working I remembered using a service a while ago to bulk upload files so I dug into my old emails from Phillyman and found what I was looking for ….. Multcloud …. and lo and behold that does work so we're back in business. First up we have issue 44, the last issue of this title to be produced.
