That May 1990 CU Amiga is #1 on our "we must get" list so if you could send us that, it would be awesome!

My copy has first 8, middle 4 and last 8 pages all missing so I'm not sure how many reviews/previews/cheats are missing from that issue. Any confirmation would be great!

Question

I got the magazine right in front of me.
Can you please tell me the exact page numbers that you need and how can I provide you them?
Pag 1 - cover
pag 2- advert of Pipe Mania
pag 3 - contents
pags 4-6 - Buzz
pag 7 - advert of Life & Death
pag 8 - buzz

middle 4 pages are the pages 53-56? reviews of Escape from the Planet of the Robot Monsters, review de Budokan (2 pages) & Ivanhoe advert)

In the last 8 pages there aren't any review, some non-game adverts pages, and next month page, and the last 2 pages are the adverts of Italia 90 & Shadow Warriors.

Thanks for that spirit! Those are the exact pages missing (1-8, 53-56 and 101-108).

Would you be able to download the excel template on the front page of the site and fill in the reviews on those pages 53-56 please including all fields that apply? (Who reviewed the game, what mark it got, cost, exact pages, developer if mentioned etc). If you click on a game on here you will see all this kind of stuff appear:

http://amr.abime.net/amr_search.php?...69&tab=reviews

If the Excel thing is a pain, you can just list all the data here and I'll put it in. Scans of the cover and contents page would also be awesome if you have access to a scanner!

And thanks very much for this!

I'm glad that I could help you with the CU of may 1990.
This are the list of Amiga Action magazines (sadly I don't keep the magazines now so only the few pages of each number that I scanned):
Quote:
Nš:
2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,13,14,15,16,17,18,21,27.28.29.30,32,33,35,36,38,39,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,48,49,50,52,53,54
If any is needed just please let me know. Maybe is one of the pages that I got scanned.

Spirit: Any of those Amiga Actions we don't have we will gladly accept the scans for! All the AA's we own are online (so obviously we don't have many!) You can upload anything to the same FTP I gave you the other night if you like...

And thanks!

My mum has all my Amiga mags in storage, but she is 2 hours away from me... I will need her to bring them down next time she is here, or i might just pay her a visit. Ive got ALOT of magazines just sitting there, most in great condition.

Go see your mum, take her some flowers.

Oh yeah, also take your scanner, a guide on how to scan hundreds of magazines and then go down the pub.

Just spent the past couple of hours browsing 'the rack'

FANTASTIC work guys. I have an old beat up copy of CVG from December 89 that has loads of pages missing and it was great being able to see all those missing reviews etc.

Keep up the good work guys!

10/10
