As Mel Brooks says "It's good to be the king" lol.

Thanks Lost Dragon, again It was a great working on this project, Steve and myself had an awesome time. Now it's time for the AtariCrypt name to take it to the next level via his website.

I'm glad you said that actually mate. You wouldn't believe how many folk contacted me to say they didn't realise there was a website, probably all down to my bad marketing skills!?? LOL. Yes, to everyone that loves gaming waffle on their Atari ST - please do check out AtariCrypt website. It's where it's at, don't you know? :lol:

Your welcome Steve/Greyfox...on Night Shifts this week, so it'll be a life saver at work.

I would of loved to of been a 'proud' STFM owner, only i came from the world of the 800XL and C64 before venturing into the 16 bit world of Atari, so i'd taken hardware scrolling and a decent soundchip as standard ;-).

I loved my ST for the super fast 3D, the P.D scene and games like Oids, Dungeon Master, IK+, Captive, Midwinter 2, Robocop III etc, but that soundchip was awful, sorry it really was and i've never been a fan of push scrolling and restricted playing windows, espically when it effects gameplay.

The ST won me over on price, but it's the 1 machine i never went back to when i got bitten by the Retro collecting bug.
But i do, all joking aside, owe it an awful lot.


Without it, i'd of been a lot, lot later moving from C64 into the 16 bit world and would of missed out on so much...


I'm a firm beliver in accepting the strength and weakness each machine i've owned had so be it the ST's flaws or low resolution of the C64 and Lynx, limited colours of the Mega CD or limited PMG/sprites on the A8, right up to the Jaguar's poor texture-mapping abilty...when i read articles/reviews written about the games on them, i expect balance.

None of this Ohhh it's on Atari, best give it a 10 or claim it held it's own or made C64 owners jealous nonsense :)let alone print out meaningless tech specs, with resolutions games never ran at or high resolution modes hardware never achived.

That's why i honestly, truely found myself floored by your reviews.


No bloody nonsense, clearly written by a gamer, for gamers, exactly what i wanted.


And like i say, choice of games, was in itself fantastically well covered...(pauses to wipe a a misty eye here)...



Almost punched the air with a YES!!!!!!!!!! reading the Pac-Mania review.


Not a cool thing for man of my tender years to be doing though :)

You Gentlemen done the ST bloody proud.

Wow...any chance of a picture of an open spread, and just for the record the magazine wasn't designed for print, so really interested on how this worked.

@Lost Dragon, I think I could listen to all day to your praises, but my ego will stand in and say that's nothing, wait till to see what's coming..lol. and then my facing reality steps in to ask what the hell are you (me) saying?. Again many thanks for all the support from everyone here and elsewhere, the magazine has won many hearts new and old.

You are all fantaSTic fans.

It is sent to digital printing. Worked out quit nice. Just the couple of issues:
- the font size varies, which is only noticeable in the printed version
- two of the two pages graphics starts on the wrong page: the two images are not side by side
- 1-2 millimeters must have been cut from the sides of inner pages to align the edges. Noticeable but only the "substation" page has missing text (the first characters are cut ti half).

Those are fantastic, looks like you got this done at a5 size from the pictures? , I need reiterate that this was purely designed for a digital device, as one other person on Facebook was saying the same hint, in regards to pages one ahead of the other, in order to correct this I'd have to reformat it for print and at bigger resolution , but with starting a new job, which is intensely full full time, I won't have the time to do this, as well as other projects I've to over see.

But the print quality is fantastic considering the resolution limitation which were there in the first place.

Thanks for sharing man.
