Thanks. Checked, good quality .

On page 22, on the left side, it seems like the feet are cut. Is it normal or was the scan a bit off-center?

Seems like there was rust developping around the staples (obviously). Good idea to have scanned it now just in case.

TCD (or anyone else): Should I try to cut/remove the rust spots (see page 15 for instance) before uploading to HOL or is it good enough as it is (+ gives an authentic look )?

Personally I'd remove the rust spots as long as the pages are still readable. It's a PDF afterall (so much for the authentic bit ).

Page 22 is scanned as-is in the original, feet were cut in the original paper form as well. Also some pages look a bit rotated - it was also in the original, I scanned it correctly.

Thank you for confirming that the original is a bit dodgy

Is there anything else I could do to let the comics be published?

Happy

Yes, tell that lazy lilalurl to get to work... oh wait that's me .

Sorry, removing the rusty parts was quickly done, but getting the PDF to a decent size without sacrificing quality was a difficult trade-off, so I dithered a bit too much .

Now it is at 7.35 Mb (for originally 35 Mb in 28 files) and still seems quite readable I think when zooming in.

It is up now, so if you have a few seconds, feel free to check and tell me if you are satisfied with the quality/size (if not, it can be changed):

Well, you are the one who put the most work into that when doing the scans, so you can thank yourself before all

I have a question: does the HOL need also alternative manuals? For example, I have scanned Parasol Stars (Hit Squad budget version) manual. It has 6 pages in total, tells nothing new compared to manual that is already in HOL, but the appearance is completelly different (printed white on black, different layout, one language only etc). Should I contribute with this, or it would be redundant?

Also - I would like to contribute with complete manuals sorted in PDF, but my legal and registered Adobe Acrobat 8 is unable to complete the task from some unknown reasons So I have to upload only separate page scans.

We welcome all manuals, whether they be original or budget release manuals. Some of the budget manuals are exactly the same as the original release ones, but may be printed on less pages or have a different layout (which is sometimes better).

No problems - just scan to 300dpi in jpeg & save with 15% compression (as per HOL guidelines), and then up them to the ftp site in your own folder (so lilalurl knows where to look to process them! ). Many thanks in advance!
