Yes! At CDinteractive we have all the dutch CD-i magazines scanned and they are very nice tools, interesting and helpfull to read more about CD-i. If you have permission of the original publisher we can host them all on CDinteractive, but I remember Mathias from Philipscdi.com also tried this when he scanned all the dutch issues. Otherwise Underground Gamer is a nice alternative where lots of us will take a peek!

I'd be really interested to have a look at the English coverage from back in the day too. Thanks for bringing it up and if you want to devote your time to this project, it'll be very much appreciated! I know how time consuming scanning a whole book or magazine can be. Good luck!
Check out my YouTube channel for some CD-i reviews!

I'm in the middle of moving home right now but once I have my office setup at my new place I will get scanning.

If anyone can help with Issue 01 (Either sell it me or scan it in) that would be great!

Pretty quite at the moment, I've moved home and just trying to get hold of a cheap desk to setup the scanner and get started.

Will keep everyone updated with progress as and when.

**Update**

Issue 02 is now scanned

I'm not sure if it's best to wait until there all scanned in or upload individually.

The next 2 issues will be scanned in the next 7 days.

The project was put on hold until now due to various reasons.

I've currently started scanning and completed Issue 02 so far (Only took a couple of hours because the magazine is quite thin.

I have 2 other issues with me at the moment which I plan to scan this week.

The other magazines should be scanned by the end of February with a bit of luck, however I'm still missing Issue 01.

Unless the magazines can be hosted here I will upload the first 3 magazines at the weekend to underground gamer.

Sorry for going a little post crazy today, but just wondered if somebody on here knows what cover discs came with each issue of the Philips CD-i magazine?

If have cover discs but don't know which issue there from.

I would like to include the cover discs in .ISO format along with the cd scan for future releases of the torrent.

Is there anyway for those of us who don't have underground gamer accounts to get ahold of these?
Like Rapidshare or something?
