searching for the mags...

searching for the mags...

searching for the mags...

Recently, i've gone way over my head with this project.  mainly because i joined the qb scene about 3 years too late... you may have guessed from the title that i'm searching for qb magazines.  that is true.  so far, i have discovered there are these mags:

qb tm (have all of them)
qb on acid (have first 3)
qb times (have first 4, number 4 is roughly translated from german)
qb gazette (can't find hide nor hair)
qb chronicles (have all)
qb cult mag (have all)
qb gamer (can't find)
basix fanzine (only have first 15)
qbnews (haven't looked yet)

i came here because i hoped someone could help me.  if someone has downloaded ANY of the mags i'm missing, please email it/them to me, or post it here.  when i get as many as i can, then i plan to upload them in an archive in as many places as i can.  the mags are incredible pieces of qb history, and one can learn much from them.  if anyone has anything, please give it to me.  thank you all.

RE: searching for the mags...

edit: i have found all of the basix fanzines.  

RE: searching for the mags...

wee!!! i'm so happy :D  i recently came into contact with tek, and he gave me the old qb gazette mags.  YES!  SUCCESS!!!  i was just so happy i just had to post.

RE: searching for the mags...

Could you please send me the qb mags too?


RE: searching for the mags...

sure!  but i'm afraid i can't email them to you, as it's 16 megs zipped! so you'll have to go to www.rpg-dev.net.  you can download it from there.  the link should be on the front page.   near the top of the screen.  soemthing like, "qbasic magazines archive"

RE: searching for the mags...

Thanks Barok! I'm downloading the mags right now!

RE: searching for the mags...

heh heh, your welcome.  i konw it's a very large file, but also very rewarding.  that archive probably has all of the qb history since 1990-2000.   (only three years missing from the start: oh well.) start with the qb times.  that's the very first mag that came out.  when i get the paper, i plan on printing off all the mags and putting it all in a binder.  

RE: searching for the mags...

btw, if you guys want the qb on acid magazines (a very good publication.  you don't want it missing from the archive!) you can pester nekrophidius to send it to me (or you) here. dave@nodtveidt.net

RE: searching for the mags...

That's a great idea! I think I'll do that too. QB on Acid?? I'll write Dave first thing in the morning! heh heh

RE: searching for the mags...

don't bother... dave wrote me back, and he told me that qb on acid no longer exists... he told me that the cd it was on must have been corrupted by the ocean air.  too bad.  it was a great publication... :*(

RE: searching for the mags...

Awww...too bad! Is there no one else who has QB on Acid?

RE: searching for the mags...

hold the phone!  nek just emailed me telling me that he managed to find issues 6,7, and 8 the last three) so it's not a total loss.  (only 4 and 5 missing: pretty good) you can get it at:

www.nodtveidt.net/qboa or something like that.  if it doesn't work take off the qboa.  

RE: searching for the mags...

Great! Thanks! I downloaded all of them. Issue #9 was there too, but it wasn't a very long one. Long live QB!

RE: searching for the mags...

issue 9 was done very quickly, just to show that qb on acid was being revived.  if you want to write an article for it, go ahead!  nek wants everyone that wants to write an article to go ahead and write one.
