I didnt realise Syper Stardust was Team 17, I enjoyed that.

But Superfrog was average in my opinion and Arcade Pool!?!? I couldn't understand why some magazines gave it such good reviews.

As you say though, its all opionion.

The cover looks tame, empty, feels "cluttered" despite the overload on empty space. The typeface used for the "some kind of wonderful" text has nothing to do with the logo typeface, it has no impact, and did I say it's too empty?

Now flame as you may, but this is what I think. it's a pity since the rest of the mag (well, what I can see from here) looks bloody brilliant,. and I can't wait to read the adventures of Mr Cornflake and... who the hell is the other one?

Why didn't you say so from the beginning? Everybody has the right to an opinion, and the only reason I asked was that I couldn't find those "obvious" errors. Peace.

The PDF will come in at ~20MB.

In reply to Tim Janssen: the frequency should be around 2-3 months between issues. #2 will not take anywhere near as long to produce as the first edition has, as we now have a template to work from, so to speak.

Issue 1 is 70 pages, 6 of which are adverts. Thought some ads might add a bit of, I dunno, 'flavour'.

I wouldn't jump on you, Akira. Unless it was to give you lots of huggles and smooches.

If it is too large for anyone to download, send me your postal address in a PM and I'll send it on a CD, free of charge.

Excellent work, thanks to all involved

p.s. 20MB too big on 56K? Ludicrous, I used to download 37MB South Park episodes when I was on dialup. No problems resuming, and didn't take much longer than two hours each.

My suggestion would be that you made a split up version of it, one part for introductions, one part for reviews, one for features and one for walkthroughs and so on for every seeming part you have.

That way a 56Ker could download the parts instead. Download the part that would be most interesting to the person and then have something to read while the rest of it downloads.

I know it'll get more troublesome to maintain but I think it'll be worth it to see the happy look on the faces of the 56k people.

That and it will save bandwidth if someone doesn't want to download the walkthrough section anyway.

Lucky for you, you don't live in a cheap-arse south american country where 1 hour on dialup means complete rape-age of your poor booty.

A CD version seems cool. How about making, after a bunch of issues get released, a CD to distribute to the people, only for CD+shipping costs? would be something nice to have.

Judging by the number of posts on EAB, you must have spent a few months online with that modem.

Whether it is idle or downloading bears no relation on costs - or does your ISP really charge per megabyte?

My number of posts is a direct result of my time when I HAD a cable connection.

Thank you for jumping onto conclusions. If you had access to the logs like RCK does, you would notice my posting has decreased A LOT in the last year or so.

You shouldn't have said anything unless you could prove it.

Thank you. Good bye.

Uh, I'm not trying to prove anything, nor have a dig - I'm trying to find out why you feel 20MB is out of the question on 56K.

And forgive me for knowing little about your history, I only discovered the EAB in January this year.

After finally finding some time to sit down and read some of the magazine, I must say that I am very impressed.

The general quality of the magazine is one thing, but the best thing IMHO is the general slap-stick style writing, which I find very nostalgic from the days of reading Amiga Power and CU Amiga - and certainly not the same feel from current-day magazines. Whether that type of writing is... better or not... I just don't care - it certainly takes me back. (ohhh, when I was a lad...)

So, a big thank you from me on such quality work. I wish you all the best with it.

One suggestion though - where is the PR? For something as big as this, I expected to see it all over the news sites, etc. but the only one I found was on amiga.org. What about posting on ann/lu, amiga-news.de, uae msg board, amigaworld.org, etc. etc?

Anyway, great work! I will certainly look forward to the next one - when I have finished this one anyway.

P.S. Save the penguins!
