I love the intro and great picture too.
reading about the yam FM and the old stories is really entertaining. +1 for readability.

Magic: I don't quite follow. There is more content in this issue than in the older mags from the 80s and 90s, which we build on. It's not only about the amount of articles btw, it's also about the quality of the articles, the length of the texts, as well as the mag's release rate, loading speed and design. We fill up every disk in every issue - we even went 40 tracks. Amiga or PC btw, same modern stuff with close to unlimited space ;)

@Hedning: It's not about the one side.. It's about the amount of articles on that one side.. Just 3-4 articles more (on topic not news, preface and such) would add much more to the feeling or reading a diskmagazine imho. It's not ment to be rude (and definately no rivalry, i love all diskmags) just my personal wish and feedback :) Btw.. my background is actually not PC but Amiga And I think it should be possible to do just a tiny little bit better with one side than seen now contents wise and thus maybe needing a better (smarter) balance all around to make it fit if nessecary..

Magic: We decided we would rather have 3-4 issues with less, but still relevant and fresh, content a year than one huge issue once a year or so. Mainly to keep stuff rolling, hand out fresh news, and also because there are few diskmags that do just that. Glad you enjoyed it! Very few mags on the c64 had more than one disk historically speaking. A bit rude of you to say that you don't regard it as a "real" diskmag - perhaps you are apoiled by the PC-scene with their harddrives and megabytes of data? But if you are comparing it to VN, then Propaganda is more like a classic C64 diskmag than what VN has become (a diskbook?). Nah. They are both perfect examples of C64 diskmags. Next issue will be out this autumn. See ya!

I actually read this issue while I was in a train going through Sweden and also going through Lund :)

For sure there are to little articles especially taken in account this issue was once planned for a release at Gubbdata 2022 (Than without the two Gubbdata articles which are now included)

But whats inside on this 1 side diskmag is just really great stuff! (music, gfx, articles) My only wish would be a few more articles to make it more like a diskmag instead of an article pack (so to speak)

Keep on rocking the diskmag scene you guys!

It was an entertaining good read with good music in the background. I especially liked the GubbData stories and Paladin's childhood memories. :)

katon: We can't mention every entry in every compo, and sometimes we pick favourites instead of highest ranking in a compo.

All killer, no filler! The way a diskmag ought to be.

Super magazine! Super graphics and music. The text in each article is great! however, I have a certain doubt. In the presentation of the short list in the Revision Party, there is no mention of my graphics, which in the list of graphics found the highest note of course for graphics in C64 :-)

Really well worked through piece of work. Great content, great music and very slick production. Must say the font is really readable.

Is it just me or is there a slight bug in the intro? The first P leaves a very small artefact as it goes up and down ;-)

On the 10 years Gubbdata, I never cracked any Greve graphics games. They quit before I started cracking so I never had the chance. I hold Lars in high esteem for the dare devil move to start a gaming industry in Sweden. Might have been lethal to the Swedish cracking and demo scene, had he succeeded, I he had started recruiting people of talent, giving them less time to the scene activity.

Missed a reference to the undies in the stream that was also a thing ...
