Guides on emulating older games

This is the October 1994 issue of the English Mac magazine, MacFormat (which is still going strong today, btw). This issue has articles which introduce publishing principles, a series of articles on presentation programs (Persuasion, Claris Impact & PowerPoint 3.0) as well as reviews on new games ( Sensory Overload, Wrath of the Gods, Carriers at War 2, Ultra Mac-Games & Alien Arcade), applications (WordPerfect 3.0 & Ritz Payroll) and shareware. See the image 'The Finder' for full details.

The first download is a PDF of the magazine. The JPEGs have been straightened, reduced in size to 1600x1200 at 72dpi. Bookmarks have been added and OCR has been applied.

An image of the floppy (within the floppies of the first 35 issues) can be found here..

The magazine was also sold in a separate version which had a cover CD-ROM instead the floppy disk and that CD-ROM is here.

The cover floppy disk contains:

Architecture: PPC (Carbonized) x86 (Intel:Mac) x86 (Windows)

This was the first ever issue I read. It was bought by an enlightened friend of mine at the time, Trish. She was online in 1994 with a Mac IIsi and a 14.4K modem.
PDFs put in as PDFs, rather than as ISO or ZIP-files.
