Gotta love Carlton!
You're most welcome!
And it only gets better from here on out. Just look at this.
I've come across something a little peculiar when cleaning up my external hard drives.
As I was creating a new system to file everything in such a way that makes my workflow less messy and a lot more organised, I came across unfinished scans of Club Nintendo Volume 1 Issue 4 - 1989 (UK). Which is kinda weird as the magazine has been released already last year.
But for whatever reason, I can't seem to find the finished TIF files for this particular issue.
So I'm going to finish up the remaining 5 pages once more and then re-release it as I don't know what went wrong here.
Talking about re-releasing magazines, certain magazines need a bit of special care as I look back on them. Especially since some of these scans are from 2009. So I'm going over every single page once more and correcting whatever blemishes that I can find that were not fixed in the past, either due to me just missing them, or because I lacked the skills to deal with them at the time.
To give an example of this, I've uploaded 2 pages that I think show why it might be best to download the new versions of these magazines ones they are released.
The difference in the Mean Machines cover looks dramatically different in the full page scans as the resized ones below seem to hide the change due to the downsampling and artifacting.
Now, the problem with these is that up till now it has been nearly impossible to know what version of a scan you had compared to the one that was up on the site.
Therefor I've added a date to both the bottom of each "Thank You" page at the end of the magazine starting with OSSM19.
You'll notice that on the catalogue page right under the dates for the first and final issue of the magazine, I've also added the scan date. So it'll be easy to see, whenever an update should occur on a magazine, that these dates do or do not match up.
The one thing I'm not sure of is on how to release these re-releases.
I can either release them one by one as they get finished, or wait till a set of a certain magazine is completed and then update them in bulk.
Let me know if you prefer either way. The only thing that might be a bit annoying with a bulk release of a certain series is the download limits on the file host. Downloading one or two magazines at a time certainly is easier than having to cue up 10 issues or so, at least without an account at that file host. So just let me know how you wish I should proceed.
