All the issues of Micr'oric are now on Defence Force

Post by Dbug » Sat Feb 06, 2010 4:40 pm

Thanks to François Schuler I've been able to collect the 10 issues of Micr'Oric, they can be downloaded on the Oric Library:
http://www.defence-force.org/computing/ ... /index.htm

The files are not compressed, they are direct links to PDF, the reason is that it makes it possible to consult the magazines directly from the browser.

When I have time I will do the same thing with Theoric

Some of the PDF were made from scans I made years ago.
I'm not looking for credit here :wink:, just that when I made the scans, I had two objectives:
1- trying to make them as "light" as possible to fit all the magazines on a CD, so I used monochrom scan. Good for the text, but the pictures look crappy
2- trying to have a minimal quality, so I double-scanned the pages which had photos, in 256 grey scale.

I see the PDF used only the monochrom pages even for the pictures :shock:, so if you ever want to make a new PDF, which will be bigger in size but in better quality for the pictures, I can still provide the scans in 256 greys.
This is for Micr'Oric 1, 4 and 6. I scanned too (in jpeg this time) a promotional issue for the Sicob 1983. Let me know if you want it !

IIRC, most of the other scans (Micr'Oric and Theoric), were made by Chrisitan L.

There was better quality scans on Abandonware-Magazines, but I don't have the software to convert jpg to pdf. Tried one that miserably fucked up my system.

Guess we can do a pass of cleaning/improvement later on :)

I thought it was the same source for both sites ?
Anyway I'll try and find a way to make a PDF of those Jpeg files so you can have the promotional issue too. Never made a PDF in my life ! :oops:

I only checked one random one on each site, one had very nice high res color scans, the other one had smaller resolution scans.

I just made the PDF of the promotional issue of Micr'Oric, wohooo ! (using PDF Creator, quite easy).

Dbug, could you send me the coordinates (FTP ?) where I should send it for you ? (8.3MB big). Thanks !
