Glad you got the magazine.

Sorry you assumed it was bigger, it was listed as A5 size on the shop listing.
To archive the high print and paper quality and to have 40 pages and not 20 i went with A5 instead of A4.

I was happy with the size. And the content. Especially the A to Z you started. Just sad I didn't get any lemmings goodness.

Look forward to issue 2 though! Thanks

I did exactly the same. Didn't look, just ordered and got a surprise when it turned up in its dinky little A5 form. I have absolutely no complaints about the size though, I love it!

It's been a very enjoyable read, makes me nostalgic for the times of picking up my monthly Amiga magazines from the local newsagent.

So as the kids are not in school and I wanted to do a video about this magazine and sadly it seems it can't be done. There is way too much noise in this house be it night or day.

My second option was to do a write up on my blog so this is what I did late last night. I hope you enjoy it and will keep following the blog as it will be filled with all kinds of content.

Hey AmigaJay, would you mind to put Cobe's Pong4 CD32 on the next cover disc? See here: http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=...1&postcount=13

Looking forward to the next issue.

BTW, do you offer the cover disk somewhere to download? My CD is at my parents house (where my CD32 is), but I wanted to try CD in FS-UAE as well. If not, no problem, then I will wait till I am at my parent's again.

Update:

Last few copies of the paper magazine remain, i have had some requests to sell a PDF version, i know i was against it, but since the paper version has been sold out and no more will be printed i see no harm in selling a PDF version now.

Along with allowing the cover disc to be freely available to download due to the end of the exclusivity deal.

Details are in the first post.

Jay

Sold out - nice! Any chance you could consider sending the PDF to those with the print edition? Wouldn't mind ordering the PDF separately though
