Title: I have a 3DO Star Control 2 guide from a 1995 Tips & Tricks magizine.
Post by: wizzard on October 15, 2006, 12:23:39 pm
I have a Tips & Tricks magazine from May 1995.
It has a 7 page guide for 3DO Star Control 2 in it with pictures and everything.
Each page somewhere around 786kb
The entire guide is 5.16MB
I emailed it to Toys For Bob.
If anyone wants it.
Tell me how I can upload it to the internet without using email.

There is a pletora of sites out there that will host files for you, one example would be RapidShare (http://www.rapidshare.de). Just google fileshare or fileupload or something similar to find other alternatives. Then post a link to your file in this thread.

Check whether your Internet service provider provides web space for you. If they do (and in my experience, they usually do so for free), upload your file there (see your ISP's instructions for details). The Internet is full of free hosting solutions, but they tend to have strange limitations on storage time, downloads or allowed content (e.g. advertising required), so you'd be best off with something you've already paid for.

If you're still stuck after looking at the options mentioned here, I can host it on my webserver indefinitely, without any of the restrictions.  To be fair, one additional restriction is that I won't have time to set up ftp access or anything, so it'll be a one-shot upload.  If you want to take up the offer, say so and I'll PM a suitable email address to send the files to.

While I do not have FTP or any of that other fancy stuff, I do have a web based FTP-like setup on my home PC that would allow you to upload the files and have them viewable on the internet. PM me if you're interested.

The Tips & Tricks Magizine has a 8 pg guide for Snatcher
The Tips & Tricks Magizine has a 5 pg Sega Genesis guide for  Beavis And But-Head.
If anyone is interested in those let me know.
I would have to scan them in and convert them in Photoshop.

The one where they're trying to get into a Gwar concert? I actually sat down and beat that whole thing at a friend's house like eight years ago. And no, please don't show me a guide for it.
