Hi everybody,

+++ Please notice: All DVDs are gone +++

some times ago, I discovered my first atari-game related record from "Kid Stuff Records" a record label wich had the official licence from Atari and Nintendo to produce story-records from famous videogames. The longplayers are a mixture of cool music and storytelling, the 7-inch-records are mostely story with a readalongbook inside cover so you can watch text and pictures wile you listen to the record. I was completely hooked and decided to collect them all.
After some years of research I got 20(!) different records, which I completely digitized and put on a DVD. For EuroCon 2007, I produced 50(!) of them - each numbered on box and on the DVD. They contain all audio-files as "wav" and "mp3" as well as all readalong books as PDF-documents. The PDFs were made from my scans, which had to be "refreshed" with Photoshop side by side.

All together it took me 2 years to digitize and assemble all of those stuff. The result are nearly 4 GigaByte of data from all the records!

This is the assumed to be COMPLETE set of Videogame-related Kid-Stuff records and this is what´s on the DVD:

Longplayers: (wav, mp3, cover scans, info)

Asteroids
Donkey Kong
Missile Command
Pac-Man Adventures
Pac-Man Album
Pac-Man Christmas Album
Yars´ Revenge

7 inch readalong books (wav, mp3, cover scans, info and PDFs of the storybooks)

Asteroids
Breakout
Missile Command
Star Raiders
Yars´ Revenge
Adventures of Super Pac-Man
Baby Pac-Man goes to the Market
Ms Pac-Man´s Price Pupil
Pac-Man and the Ghost Diggers
Pac-Man Picnic
Pac-Man goes to Playland
Pac-Man Run for Fun
Pac-Man The Christmas Story

and some odd other things.... :-)

there are 20 of my DVDs left.
If you like to have one of these DVDs, please send me a message

I sell them for $15 each (producing costs (pressing, printing) - not for my work or the content)
Airmail shipping worldwide is $6 (sorry, I had to update shippingcosts. Does not affect anyone who had paid til now)

Some notes:
This DVD is a PC/MAC-readable DVD.
You have free access to all the content. The data-files are in normal open file formats and the DVD can be controlled with a HTML-Menu on your PC (if you want).
This is not a movie DVD - its a collection of knowledge and data.
Some of the original records were in the hands of kids and this of course affects qualitiy. I did my work it as good as I was able to.
My software could remove lots of noise and scratches from the files, but not everything.
I do not want to find my DVD on ebay when some people would love to get one. So I only sent one piece to one person.
Who comes first gets first. If they are gone they are gone - forever. I do not make any more.

Many greetings
Jens

sure:

it was
MAGIX Music Cleaning Lab
http://www.magix.com...c-cleaning-lab/

it comes with software for everyone to understand and a little booster box to put between your record-player and the PC-soundcard.

Greetings
Jens

We can hope and dream right? I mean if I was able to score 2 Atari 2600 Heavy Sixer 1977 joysticks with hex discs at Goodwill, maybe there is 1 or 2 left of this DVD from 2008?
