They only seem to go back to Vol 4 Issue 3 Posted Image

Maybe the older ones got sold out?  :P


Looks like they're more interested in hosting $£*% )!%'s stuff rather than their own back issues. I don't quite understand why they have four (4) versions - pdf, zip, rar, 7z - when it's a pdf magazine.Posted Image Put a pdf and one other compressed version out and that's enough, that way maybe they could host some older issues?

Nice list by Michel :)

I've had a peek at some once and scrolling through to find GPL stuff did indeed take a while. That helps so much!

Shame they deleted them then for updating the site. Perhaps they'll be re-upped when they stop upping recent ones again :P

From the latest issue of AutoSimSport, HeadOpEd page, Alex Martini says

"the entire back issues of AutoSimSport will be appearing online....  This is a slow process but...should be up before our next issue."

So it looks like they're just working on it.
