The Captain 80 Book of Basic Adventures

Postby ChickenMan on Sat Sep 13, 2014 1:12 am

I've been looking for a scan of this book/magazine for a while without success and see that its here but not scanned in yet. Any chance of a scan (at 300dpi), I'm particularly after the game "Thunder Road Adventure" as I've been given a copy of the game 1/2 converted to run on the Microbee, just needs finishing off. Difficult without the original listing. Thanks, just greyscale JPG or PNG files would be handy as I'm setup well to convert those to searchable PDF's.
Many thanks,

Alan

Found a copy at archive.com, not a good scan but it will suffice :)

It's good you've found one.

A few years ago I asked the author if I could scan this book. He said he'd rather I didn't. I respected that decision.

I fully respect your decision, we do the same at the MSPP.

I think archive.com though are getting a bit lit Google, to big for their boots and now just archive anything with asking permission from anybody. They are now actively archiving software as well or should I say, leaching it off other sites.
