I am trying to get my Disk-magazine section more complete. Can you guys check your disk-collection to see if you have any Disk-Magazines I'm missing?

For Example:

I'm still looking to complete the following Disk Magazines for example:

BCN MSX Disk 1,2,6,7, (and if they exist 7 & up)
Disk Digits Magazine 12, 14 (and if they exist 16 & up)
Disk Cool 2
Euro Link 3
White Soft 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,13,14 (and if they exist 16 & up)
etc...
etc...

You can check the current collection here: https://download.file-hunter.com/Disk-Magazines/

Wow, I hadn't heard of White Soft's MSX DISKTYDSCHRIFT... I hope more issues pop up. Issue 15 was the last one, it says in the preface. It's quite a sad issue...

I am actually looking for a game that was published as part of the MSX DISKTYDSCHRIFT. It is called Cobra Patrol and it was the first game I made on my Philips NMS 8250. If someone could dig up that one, that would be a blast from the past for me! I have no clue which number of the MSX DISKTYDSCHRIFT it was. I remember I got a free copy and was very honoured to have it distributed. I remember the guy running that magazine from my computerclub Futura in Zaandam, his name was Rob. Many good MSX memories....

In the meantime quite some new (and rare) Diskmagazines have been added. But we are still missing quite a few.
Please take a look on the abovementioned URL to see what's available and if you by any chance have some files to add!
Don't forget: My downloadsite is also a community effort. It's certainly not only my work. A LOT of people have contributed to it and I hope you guys will continue to do so.

I guess that Rob is "R.A. Lotman" from Zaandam, as he was the editor in chief of the disk magazine. (Note that the text is full of spelling and grammar errors... for me it's really horrible to read, but also a bit funny.)

On the other hand: I had no clue this magazine existed... I wonder how many subscribers there were! Have you ever heard of it? Were there any ads for it? Or was it just something that only members of Futura knew?

I've been a longtime member of Futura, don't even remember this disk.

@Sander Do you remember the name Rob Lotman then?

I was a member at Futura in Zaandam from 1987-1989.
The MSX Disktydschrift was not a personal publication by this guy Rob. Futura was not involved in this.
