Britain's best-selling Macintosh magazine, MacFormat. From issue #13 onward (June 1994) this magazine was also sold with a cover CD-ROM (or two) containing demos, shareware, public domain software and sometimes, full commercial apps.

Top DL: MacFormat Issue 16 CD Edition, September 1994 .ISO in Compact Pro ".cpt" archive, in MacBinary wrapper - had to do it this way, StuffIt refused to compress this archive sufficiently (StuffIt Expander will extract it OK tho').
This issue has mainly demo software plus free or shareware of the period.

2nd DL: MacFormat Issue 18 CD Edition, November 1994 .ISO in StuffIt 3.6 ".sit" archive.
This issue has the Bumper Utility spectacular. Containing over 300 MB's of utility and comms software of the period. Plus demos, Rebel Assault and Sensory Overload, etc.

These early MacFormat CD Editions have both System 6 and 7 desktop partitions on them. So you can for example, drag this CD image into a Mini vMac window with it running SSW 6 and it will mount with full access to the CD content.

This is good news. I bought 30 early MacFormats (between issues 20 and 100) just after Christmas as well as a few of the cover CDs from autumn-winter of 1994. They are in my parents house and I will upload them once I receive them.
