Emulation
This app works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II,

Britain's best-selling Macintosh magazine, MacFormat Issue 22, March 1995, with CD-ROM or with two floppy disks (during a transitional period, issues of the magazine were available in buyer's choice of version).

Top DL above are the untreated scans (jpeg, 300dpi) of this issue's pages. 132 in total.
The pages are A4 in height (297mm) but wider than A4. My test print at 96% was not at all bad.
If you have a comic-book reader installed, change the filename's ".zip" suffix extension to ".cbz" to view the content.

2nd DL above (MF_22A_img.sit) is a disk image of the magazine's first cover floppy disk. It is a StuffIt 3.5 archive containing a Disk Copy 4.2 disk image (see below for content).

3rd DL above (MF_22B_img.sit) is a disk image of the magazine's second "bonus" cover floppy disk. It is a StuffIt 3.5 archive containing a Disk Copy 4.2 disk image (see below for content).

4th DL Issue 22 reconstructed as PDF from above scans. Manual link above (35 MB).

For the CD Edition CD image, issue 22 See: MacFormat 1995 Cover CDs

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k PPC

Probably System 6, System 7-9.

When you compile all this pages to a single PDF file, can you please put up a .cbz (= zipped folder of all the .jpg's) files, too ? It is more handy for reading sometimes !

Ok cool. But it *seems* that all the files from 7 on *may* have this problem, just so you know.

Hi Maury,
That's not good. According to IIGS_User, files larger than 40MB are downloadable to the Great Unwashed, so I'll try that first. If that's no good, I'll replace segment 7 for you. I'll send you a PM once i have done it.

That is good news. I'll upload the full, unsplit image when I can.

Hi soudesune. Thank you so much for this upload!

I downloaded all of the parts. Unfortunately while I can extract the first 6 files OK, file 7 says its incomplete, and none of the ones after that work.

I tried extracting both using SE under Basilisk and SheepSaver, as well as The Unarchiver under MacOSX. They all have the same problem.

Has anyone else here been successful?

Basically, it is no longer needed to split the files below 40 MB to make them downloadable.

These are the ones that I have. I mean to put the rest up over time. Hopefully whois.there can make some of his collection available.

I've got almost every issue of MacFormat since the very start, and all the cover floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs they came with (although some disks / discs don't work Sad ). Unfortunately being on a dial-up connection means it's not possible to upload them.

Instead I started going through the floppy disks and uploading the bits that seemed the most interesting which weren't already here. I've still have some to upload, but had a lot of work to do recently.

Thanks, soudesune. You asked me about MacFormat CD images that I have. The ones you sent me a while back on the portable HD are volumes 22, 33, 50,52,53, 56,57,60, 61,62,63, 64,65,66,67,68,71,76,79,81,91. It is probably best to have these on one or two pages here given the number of uploads. I will put up the ones that you don't do after I am finished with Nautilus uploads.
