I am getting close to completing scanning the issues I have and need help from anyone with ISSUE 45 as this is the only issue not yet available. If you have this issue, please consider scanning it and sharing it with me. If you do scan this issue, please scan at 600dpi JPEG. I am happy to tidy up the image files and convert them to PDF format.

I also still link to Atarimania.com for issue 6 and 57 and would like to get these scanned and converted to match the other issue quality.

If you can help by scanning these issues please let me know.

ST Action PDF Issues 39, 40, 44, 46, 47, 49 are now available on my site. That is all but one issue (issue 45) now preserved and shared.

I still need to work through scanning the issues I have that are currently linked to Atarimania. These will be updated as they are done.

Happy reading and hope they bring back some memories. :D

I have only been able to look at your site briefly, but seeing the ST Action magazines does bring back a lot of memories. In the US, you had to hunt to find ST Action. Getting current UK game news was like gold.

Thanks, I would still like to get issues 6, 45 and 57 in 600dpi scans if you still have them? OCRing these at 600dpi will then match the other issues.

The next time I have access to them I will get them out and scanned at work.

Though the last stand-alone issue of ST Action magazine was #68, it did continue in the pages of ST User and then ST Review up to issue #82. I extracted the ST Action sections from those later magazines into stand-alone issues and the link is below. Just something small for those who enjoy reading these magazines.

Seems the issue ST Action #70 from Atari ST User #97 had some pages out of order in the original pdf scan.

So those have now been rearranged correctly for reading.

The files size is too large to attach here but it is available to download from the thread at Atari Age:
