CDi Magazine (UK) Scanning Project

Anything relating to CD-i can be discussed in this forum. From the multiple hardware iterations of the system to the sofware including games, reference, music and Video CDs. Maybe you hold an interest in Philips Media and the many development houses set up to cater for CD-i if so then this is the forum.

Do you want to see CDI Magazine scanned in and available to download

I think the CD online disc came with the magazine ''The Net on your Set' - late 1995 or early 1996. The Space Ace pin came with issue 5.

Just a quick update

I've dumped the cover discs I own along with scans of the leaflets and cd covers.

Hopefully over the next few days I will have scanned the following issues

Issue 01
Issue 04
Issue 05

I'll release a new torrent at this point and post a link here.

If anyone wants to donate any of the cover discs i'm missing from my collection that would be most helpful.

Just A quick update to say I've not given up with the scanning, I've just been lazy :)

I'm hoping to get all the remaining issues scanned and release all at one instead of releasing them bit by bit.

I'm still looking for help regarding cover discs and other freebies that came with the magazine if anyones got any information please let me know...

Sorry for the slow response.

I have another update ready which basically just includes a few of the cover disks and a picture of the badge you get with issue 5.

I actually sold most of my CD-i collection recently including the magazines but the could news was that I just bought the magazines back!

I'm also still going for a full CD-i set for those that are interested, and working hard to produce a complete list of UK games including catalogue numbers with rarity guide to post on here to allow others to easily track a full set too :D
