    Hey all, I need some help grabbing the collection.
    They were once free but now missing?

    https://archive.org/details/nintendopower&tab=about

    I found a site where they host each pdf individually which can take forever to download.
    Torrent or a site that allow everything in one zip would be awesome.

    Thanks!

    I had the foresight to download every issue manually before it was taken down. Most issues are .pdf, some are .cbr. It's about 6GB uncompressed.
    I'm making an ultra-compressed .7z, my laptop is pretty decent, so it's almost done. However, my internet is horseshit, so it'll take a while to upload to Mega.
    Sit tight!

    This is very
    This is very sweet of you!
    By the way, wouldn't it be easier if you split it up to 1gig a piece, total 4 files?
    Unless mega lets you resume then ignore my suggestion!

    Alright, the best way I found to do this was via MEGAsync. I'll just upload the folder link now, files should appear agonizingly slowly overnight.

    Sorry my internet sucks so bad, and there was no better way to do this. It *should* be uploaded eventually, though, and that's what counts. Right?
    Once it's there, it will be immortalized in a server where anyone can download it fast.


    until they remove it

    Jesus, it's only up to issue 62...
    I'm gonna upload the ones that are .cbr format after these, since they are 120+ MB each.

    Are these the set from emu****? The quality seems very low.

    They're from the Internet Archive, and they got them from Retromags. Sorry, it's all I have. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Also you might wanna edit your post to say "that emu site", mentioning ROM/piracy sites by name is against the Terms and Rules here.

    Hmm. They look fine to me.
    I just downloaded one, too, and it looks fine.

    EDIT: I guess I can see what you mean. It still looks good enough, though. It's better than nothing. I can read it just fine, but illustrations do look a bit blurry. I mean, they're scans of magazines from the 80's and 90's. If you really can't read it, I'm sorry, but there's nothing I can do.

    Alright, update:
    It's nearly done with all of the .pdf ones. I just queued the huge .cbr ones. Those will take a while.

    And if you don't know this yet, it only goes up to about issue 145. That's all Retromags/Internet Archive had due to their policies on newer magazines.
    There's obviously nothing I can do about that.

    Anyway, there's 29 issues left total. So, yay?

    Okay so from what I can tell, the pdf are low res versions compared to the single pages cbr version which are 7 times larger in size.
