Cu Amiga Frustration

I'm flicking through the CU Amiga mags on the site, but it seems a great many of the "interesting" pages highlighted in the contents are missing

i could list off the examples... but is this because they're just not available? or were the pages selectively scanned and uploaded?

I gather you're talkin about http://amr.abime.net/issues_6
This is a great site, but I agree with you. Many pages from various issues were not scanned. This is frustating especially when u can't find an article mentioned on the index page!

I did find this http://www.bombjack.org/commodore/am...s/cu-amiga.htm

It shows many CU Amiga magazine covers and has downloads of special booklets that came with the magazine.

The CU Amiga Super CD Roms with TFX and C4D are most popular

yeah! i wanted to look at an article on the Blizzard 1260 to see how much they were and what the reviews were at the time but was dissapointed

i'm not toooooo fussed about CU amiga, since i've placed an order with mort for it. but Amiga Format and Action are my next target, for reasons iterated in my "A plan to relive the Magazine & Coverdisk days" thread

@diablothe2nd: You are welcome to locate the missing pages, scan them, rotate them correctly, clean up any major speckles, adjust the levels so they are readable and save them at a suitable size and we will add them to AMR.

already planning on it with some stuff i dont think you guys have

infact i'd even be willing to help with the mags you've not yet done if you wanna post em to me!?

I don't have the ones in question though, hence my frustration.

EDIT - if my frustration came out as sounding like i'm accusing you guys of doing a bad job, and that there's not much to it, I apologise. I know from having worked in the 2d/3d imaging business how much of a job it is, and you guys are doing a fantastic job! and I was being sincere with my offer of help if you need it

Most likely the only pages from CU you're likely to get easily are via Mort's DVD collection scans. He's given permission for them to be used but I usually try and clean up the images a bit as some aren't straight, are often too dark, black and white pages have been saved as RGB colour etc.

Also the mags I do have are located in New Zealand, quite a job to send them to the UK

The team would appreciate any help possible to complete the gaps as most of the current members have been very busy the last few years.

Mort has indeed confirmed that we can use the images for AMR

now i need every page (adverts n all!) of Amiga Format, Amiga Action... and maybe (if i have time) Amiga Power from the January '92 issue to clean up, crop and put in pdf

Those guys on Fleabay are really scumbags as they've taken Mort's work and are undercutting him. He's the poor guy that's scanned 100,000+ pages and they're reselling his work for a fraction of the cost. I'd be tempted to report them, say the items got lost or ask for your money back as they're effectively counterfeit.

There's a panel on the top right of The Amiga Mag Rack which has his contact information and links to the store etc.

Ok guys, I got sick of viewing the contents pages of CU Amiga on AMR finding something i like then realising the pages it referenced aren't there.

So instead of tidying up EVERY page from morts collection (that would be a stupidly huge task!) I'm going to slowly work through all pages that are referenced in the contents.

I'll periodically update when i've done a few mags at once rather than mess around with each mag everytime i complete it.
