Hi there OOP, I am sorry you've had issues with this site recently.  Hopefully you'll have an active and healthy forum very soon.

A while ago I asked if anyone had the Dreamcast magazine that contained a Metropolis Street Racer competition where you had to beat the developer's best lap times.  Happily I have found the article in question in issue 16 of Dreamcast Magazine (Paragon Publishing).  However there is one small piece of the puzzle remaining: the competition results.  These are most likely contained in issue 17 as someone has done a quick flick-through video on Youtube and I think the results are on the page opposite the Silent Scope competition.  I have tried to contact the uploader but received no response.  These magazines did appear on EBAY recently but were sold before I could make a bid.

The staff here at OOP have already looked and sadly their copies have had all MSR articles removed by the Bizarre Creations team themselves (as they originally donated them).  However if anyone else has a full copy of these magazines I would be grateful for a basic photoshot of the results.  Issue 17 has Alone In The Dark on the front cover and Issue 18 has Sonic Shuffle.  I will of course keep my eye on EBAY in the meantime but it's very rare these issues appear at auction.

Thanks in advance

Oh, these are in the Paragon one?
Then I should be able to help I think. Smiley
Unless I'm missing this issue, but the description of the cover does seem familiar.
I'll have a look tomorrow as it's after midnight now.

I'm actually working on Dreamcast Magazine issue 5, trying to get it finished.
Still about 40 pages to go though and it's been going really slow, as I've been having a some health problems again this past week. But I can't complain too much as I've certainly felt worse during the summer.

Damn, can't seem to find it.

Went through a bunch of boxes and came across a couple of other issues, but not this one.
Might be along with the stuff that's in storage. Sad

I might have this issue knocking around somewhere (possibly in my garage)... I'll see if I can dig it out.

Maybe you'd also like to check who edited DM from issue 3 onwards... (though, actually, issue 2) *cough*

Rgds,

Hi Lipsy!  Thank you for offering to look; much appreciated!  Smiley.

I think the results may be towards the back of issue 17/18 rather than the front as I originally mentioned.  There's a possibility the comp was extended an extra month too.

No joy finding the mags on EBAY but did snag DC-UK Issue 18 recently for the MSR players guide.
