  1. Okay, so I know a bunch of you are just along for the ride (and manuals), but my angle is the preservation side of things. Now of course that makes for some ridiculously large filesizes, so just so you know the editing is all done at 600-1600 dpi before being resized down to manageable chunks. I like 48bit RAWs at 800dpi, but in the case of Computer Intro I take resolution over color depth and went with [email protected] http://www.atensionspan.com/Computer Intro_013.jpg Crazy, right? Anyways, up next is Smithereens! (compliments of Pickaxe Brad), since this Computer Intro manual is kicking my ass. Question for people with Computer Intro- I currently plan on putting the gatefold sheets (foldouts front and back of manual, and the goofy Glossary pages) right into the pdf manual where they are. Should I also put them in a separate, printable pdf set so they can be the "handy reference" it's supposed to be? Smithereens!.pdf
  2. Trust me, I growled a bit when I first popped the first few pages into Photoshop, then I mumbled, "something about a gift horse" and got to work.
  3. Well, this took longer than expected. But if you saw the original, you'd understand... This taps out everything from bah. Thank-you, sir!! Nimble Numbers Ned.pdf
  4. Excellent! Down to: Nimble Numbers Ned! - Math Wizardry book Power Lords (yes, there is a scan out there, but I'd prefer a higher resolution one) Atlantis Demon Attack I get the sneaky suspicion I'm going to be rebuilding the Atlantic and Demon Attack manuals based on some sketchy scans already out there... Currently working on Nimble Numbers Ned's manual (it was in iffy shape so taking some extra time to fix) and then on to Smithereens!
  5. Let's see how big of files the server will take I wasn't planning on making a project out of this one, but here we are. 2nd to last submission from bah. Game board isn't perfect (didn't stitch together as well as I'd like), but it is better than what is currently available *cough*... anyways, 300dpi for printing. Not entirely sure how I feel about the main manual and its default facing pages. I work with/optimize for a 4K monitor, so it might not be great as facing pages on other resolutions? Dunno- open to opinions. Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt, The.pdf Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt, The - Investment Record.pdf
  6. Dos mas! (Almost done with bah's submissions) That's enough for today... Hockey!_Soccer!.pdf I've Got Your Number!.pdf
  7. I've taken one for the team before http://www.atensionspan.com/Starflight_Genesis_US_Manual.pdf http://www.atensionspan.com/Starflight_Genesis_US_Starmap.png
  8. ..and another bah submitted manual (I went with a short one due to time constraints). Updated need list: *Computer Intro! *The Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt (thanks bah!) Nimble Numbers Ned! - Math Wizardry book Pachinko! Power Lords (yes, there is a scan out there, but I'd prefer a higher resolution one) Sid the Spellbinder! - Word Book Smithereens! Atlantis Demon Attack Math-A-Magic!_Echo!.pdf
  9. Another bah submitted manual up and running.... Off for Easter with the fam. P.T. Barnum's Acrobats!.pdf
  10. Another bah submitted manual up and running.... Sid the Spellbinder.pdf
  11. So I did a poll yesterday to determine which manual to do next and the winner was....... Keyboard Creations! A couple pages in it dawned on me that it was April Fool's day and people suck Anyways, preservation is all about the obscure and the odd, because mainstream games will get lovin' for a generation, while these gems(?) will slowly get forever lost from the public eye, and what few copies remain will sit gathering dust in some hoarder's basement. (Like mine- I'm not judging) /rant Keyboard Creations!.pdf
  12. bah is just dominating with scan submissions! Awesome!! Also, a shout out to whoever dumped a bunch of manuals on ebay yesterday- the covers look better than some of mine so upgrades=good. So bah did have a concern about the scruffiness of his Attack of the Timelords! cover, while the rest of the manual cleaned up quite nicely. If anyone would like to submit a cleaner copy of the cover, I will update. Attack of the Timelord!.pdf
  13. With some awesome contributions from user bah, currently looking at: Updated need list: *Computer Intro! *The Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt Nimble Numbers Ned! - Math Wizardry book Pachinko! Power Lords (yes, there is a scan out there, but I'd prefer a higher resolution one) Sid the Spellbinder! - Word Book Smithereens! Atlantis Demon Attack In progress by bah: <pending> Hockey! / Soccer! <pending>I've Got Your Number! Keyboard Creations! <pending>Math-A-Magic! / Echo! <pending>Nimble Numbers Ned! (and Math Wizardry book)<- still need word book <pending>P.T. Barnum's Acrobats! Sid the Spellbinder! (and Word Book) <- still need word book Attack of the Timelord!
  14. Snagged a NIB Conquest of the World. Updated need list: *Computer Intro! *The Great Wall Street Fortune Hunt Hockey! / Soccer! I've Got Your Number! Keyboard Creations! Math-A-Magic! / Echo! Nimble Numbers Ned! (and Math Wizardry book) P.T. Barnum's Acrobats! Pachinko! Power Lords (yes, there is a scan out there, but I'd prefer a higher resolution one) Sid the Spellbinder! (and Word Book) Smithereens! Attack of the Timelord! Atlantis Demon Attack I keep eyeballing that sealed NIB Wall Street Fortune Hunt on EBay for $115. Would anyone be interested in an unsealed, NIB that had only it's contents scanned- never used? Not really in a position to throw away $115 for a game I can't play..
