Has anyone scanned the old Amsoft Software Catalogues and are they available online?


I had the Autumn/Winter 1985 one with the spaceship on the cover but it fell apart as it was so well used.


The catalogues had the details of everything Amsoft sold including screenshots of games and covers.

I have found this but it's a 1984 version with not many games in it. One of the later ones would be more useful. Although the 1984 one does have some games that were later deleted.

I have the winter 85/86 catalogue


It would be really useful if it could be scanned and put on the Wiki. The software catalogues are a vital resource for the early life of our machines but are inexplicably ignored.


They have games that sometimes were never released and all the SOFT numbers as well. A vital resource.

Not a problem.
I'll scan it tomorrow.
Just where exactly do I upload it to in the wiki

That's great! Scan it and then I'm sure we can get someone here to sort it. IIRC there's a separate Wiki topic so I can always ask in there.

Would be good to see them online if at all possible, as I have never seen them before.

I've done it and it's uploading to my google drive.

I have no idea where to put it so if someone knows can you please dl it and save it in the appropriate place.

Hopefully it's ok.

Amsoft Winter 95/96 Catalogue

Any changes you need or if you want a higher quality or all the pages as jpgs then let me know.

I'm going in the other room to watch a LaserDisc to drown out the yobs and tarts outside my house.

That's fantastic. I'll grab a download over the weekend and hopefully someone here can help put it on the Wiki. Cheers.

Looks nice, but it's 1985/6 not 95/6. Just thought: huh, they still made stuff in the mid 90ies  :o

I keep doing that.
I have no idea why. I hated and still still do to this day (though I've softened on them recently) the 90s.
Why would I keep replacing the greatest decade in history with one of the worst.

I'll edit it tomoz.

It's not on the wiki, so scan it in please.

Dagger

Not done this before so do I just scan each page as jpeg's and if so what size?

robcfg

I think 300dpi scans are good enough.


You can also create a pdf file, but please keep the original images.

Dagger

Ok, I have scanned all the pages and put them into a zip file. Don't have any software to create a PDF file and wouldn't have a clue how to go about it. So how does one upload the zip file?

dragon

Editing the wiki. I think or put it in mega or something else here and maybe someone can edit the wiki.

Dagger

Is there someone who I can send this to so they can get it sorted? It's a 23.5mb zip file

Dagger

I have scanned and uploaded the summer/autumn 1984 catalogue and put in on the wiki at http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/Amsoft_Software_Catalogue




Malcolm.
PS: I don't know what the significance of the 1992 on that page is.

While researching for future episodes of CPCine, I've found the Amsoft Software Catalogue Winter 1985/6 inside a copy of Amstrad Computer User issue 14 (January 1986). If we want to find other issues of the catalogue, maybe this is where to look?
