Just read on http://c64.sk/ that a site has all Zzap!64 scans

http://www.cupid.de/mags/zzap64.php

I tried one random page, and it's byte-to-byte identical to Mort's scan on this site. Do those people have autorisation to reproduce it?

Well, as long as no one's making money off it, I don't really see a problem.

Crediting Mort wouldn't hurt, IMO.

Agreed.

Hey Rob, did you get my email about the retrogamer Newsfield article scans?

It would have been nice to have been credited, but at least it will save a bit of Iain`s bandwith, and there are are loads of files I have on the official dvd that are not available such as the posters, Rare newsfield jpg`s and much much more :wink:

Anyhow if it means more people ge to read the old mags, all well and good as that was the idea in getting everything digitised, and if a site is down for any reason they can still be got at by all :)

Having a look at the credits, the guy putting it together is one of Frank G's main contribs for GTW64 (Jazzcat) so you could always have a word with him about it ;)

Interesting.. I wondwe how long their bandwidth will hold out. Although there is a lot more of it around these days than back when I first tried putting all the issues online..

Downloading an issue now to see what they are like...

... Em, well issue 1 isn't a PDF, it's just an archive with all the single pages taken from the DVD.

I had a VERY slight hope that maybe they were converted to PDF and the text might have been OCRed and selectable!
