Just a bit!

I'd be interested to see what the hell the magazine covered in the final couple of years. Certainly not game reviews anyway I would assume!! :)

I can't see the Dragon User DVD being a big seller ;-) now if only I could convince Mort to redo the Zzap DVD with bigger scan images and a redesign of the DVD cover inlay! :)

Will do it eventually, maybe could get Oli Frey to do a dvd inlay (not that would be good! :D )

what size/dpi images you after? that'd blow it out to a multi-DVD collection and drive prices up I'd imagine.

The Guy delivered them also as he had to head into darkest Kent this weekend so it was on his way, result! Anyhow will plough through those in the near future will probably need to find the last 2 issues Aug and Sep 92 as they seem to have existed as they are on the Micro User website (though the links are dead). hmm :wink:

wow, great work Mort and many thanks for grabbing those mags! I'm slowly getting myself and the house sorted and aim to help out with some scanning as well as purchasing the majority of your scanned DVDs. I recently bought a heap of old mags and there are Personal Computing Weekly, Micro Computer Printout and other mags in there that you may not have (I didn't see them listed in the World of Spectrum FTP anyways). List of all mags can be seen here:

Another DVD added to the Zzuperstore. This one is of Atari User and Atari Computing.

The DVD comes with all the usual Mort extras like coverdisk, mp3s etc.

Just got the last missing page for the latest endevour!

After 14 months of trying have finished Mean Machines Sega, this covered the Megadrive from its early-mid years till it was superceded by the Saturn and Playstation. Dvd comes with all 53 issues, a bonus dvd of the covermount vids and loads more. Should be in the ZZuperstore soon and check out the Mean Machines Archive site as the scans have been passed on for them to update their brilliant site :D

Another year and yet more DVDs from Mort full of scans!

Up this time, we have Commodore Disk User and Computer Age available now at the Zzuperstore. (scroll right down to the bottom!)

Also, all DVDs that were priced at £14.99 (C&VG, Your Commodore, ACE etc.) are now permanently reduced to £11.99.

Decided to add another couple of full scanned issues of CU to the site (12 and 24). You can view then over at my retro designed (in a bad way!) CU page.

I can add more but I'll need some positive feedback first.... :)
