The silence is over in 2017... WE ARE BACK ... !!!

Due changes in format and size PRO© ATARI is available now only in English, so no need to check in the shop if you choose the correct edition!

On amazing 104 (!!!) pages which are designed as softcover book edition with a great cover artwork by our mighty KAZ you can read the following themes:

Time For A Quickie
Perplexity
Sikor's Atari-Party
Achilles
DungeonLord
Spelunker
Rain Of Terror
Spare Change
Boulderdash – Turn your sceens into a game
Diamondz 2
TRBB's epic article on Rambit
His Dark Majesty Quest II + Editor
Space Harrier
Trolls and Tribulations
Atari 5200
Pac-Man Old – Pac-Man New
A.B.B.U.C. Software Contest 2018
The Way Of The Exploding Fist
Time Pilot
Cover-Disk (Magazin Disk as Image + more infos to read)

As this is now a much bigger issue the price each is Euro 10,00 - but at the end to compare with 4 single issues (which was the same content of pages) it is not more expensive than in the past.

Also as we done this "reset" we also changes the font of size, which a lot of you named in the past too small to read well, I guess you like the "new" PRO© ATARI...

Starting pre-sale now and every pre-order is welcome to give me some feedback for the printing costs. At the end all plans are you can read the PRO© ATARI next to your tree at x-mas if post running time is well.

Please place your orders here:
www.proc-atari.de

If there are questions, let me know... icon_smile.gif 

I am looking forard you reactions ot the "new" PRO© ATARI...

All the best fellas
Yours Markus plus the whole Team ico_occasion14.gif

YES!!!! I've been waiting for this announcement... I'll be ordering this evening.

 

Does the higher page count make it costlier for shipping?

Purchased - took me a minute to find the issue on the second page... It tricked me by being between issue 11 and 12.

 

For anyone wondering the cost for the USA my paypal conversion today with shipping was $18.07

The Shipping will calculated by the shop for the weight... so ususal outside Germany one book is at euro 7,00 (incl taxes) 

 

Sometimes if there orders with some books the total weight is calculated wrong, but I refund this money than ;)

I've said this before but the other 12 issues are good too and are not newsy so don't go any more out of date than we are already :-D Plus the T-Shirts are good quality I have bought at least 1 of each design of the Pro© covers ones so help Markus shift some stock to cover his losses if you can folks :)

Can't wait!

 

Are future issues going to be this way? Longer wait but bigger issues? or will it go back to being more frequently with regular size issues?

I am still processing the pre-orders and incoming orders...

 

But all will be shipped until tuesday latest...

 

All future issues will be this way!

It makes more sense, as most issues goes outside Germany and so the postage for the customers for the small magazines is too high for a small single issue. 

 

And believe me; To hold this small "book" in the hands is amazing ;)

I totally agree. I wait for several issues new to me, before ordering. Well, I ordered the first 8 at once, and then the last 4.

Arrived in the UK today!

 

Now we can say "Too many pages and the font is too big" :P

ok you could do with a little more spacing around the page bindings ;)

 

We seem to have missed that "Finding Randy" article again (sorry savetz) :)
