Awesome! Can't wait to read the next issue!

Look forward to what you guys come up with. How many word are required for a review? Is This mini reviews or full blown page reviews?

What the main premise of this issue, if your able to say :)

blackcornflake 16 February 2016 20:56

Ooh, a contributor! :)

There's no real fixed length for reviews; a bit of variety is good, imo. Got a specific game in mind?

And there's no overall premise at this point. Lots of interesting things, though.

Things! Of interest! Lots!

Plus boobs. :cheese

Very very cool. Thanks for making it :bowdown

Just a question: Can I get it printed? Subscribed to a printed version?

zapiy 24 February 2016 01:19

More than happy to help where i can, even if its just spreading the word.

Nice. The original is back too just in time after the sad demise of Amigaville.

What software did you use to put this magazine together? What would be recommended for power, flexibility and ease of use?

CodyJarrett 08 April 2016 21:22

We used QuarkXPress which is the desktop publishing software used to make paper magazines back in the day. InDesign seems to be more popular now.

There are no plans to publish a printed version but there is probably a website that will provides this service.

Thanks- yikes quark express is 1,000 euros. Indesign expects you to pay forever- not a chance.

Just stumbled across this thread and am downloading the back-copies :)

When is Issue 5 out? Did I miss it?? I checked the site, but I can't see a publication date.

WRT letters and content - I assume letters can be in any format (in other words 'email'), but what about other articles? Can we just send text and associated images, and then you guys do the page-setting? Or would you prefer a pre-formatted .pdf? I'm assuming the former, but thought I'd ask :)

Looking forward to the read..... :great

I write for APoV, and I usually send through my piece in Word format with some associated images that I think would look good in the finalised article. The APoV crew take the reigns from there in terms of layout and page-setting.

If you have an idea for an article, it is usually a good idea to make your intentions clear to Black Cornflake or Cody beforehand, so they know what to expect. You can do so on this forum or via email.

Hope this helps :)

I've been waiting for issue 5 since 14th June 2010.

Gzegzolka 04 March 2018 19:30

Me too :) I love first issues, all reviews and articles.
