Hello, are you up to something new? Will you be doing Dreamcast or Classic Xbox? Or do you know someone or a website where you can consult the catalogs of these systems?

Thank you!

I'm not working on anything at the moment. I don't know any websites that is a good starting point if you want to make a Xbox or Sega book. When I start a project I first look around the net after a site that have a detailed list of the games library, then I work from there.

Hi, I'm a big fan of all your projects, i started my own books about consoles you didn't make, specialy NDS, i collecting this system for 10 years ago and i want to write a book about all the information, can you send me the templates you use or say me the names? It would make it easier for me realize the books. Greetings and serious, the books are 10/10.

Yes, off course :)

You can send me a message on the email written on the first page found in the PDFs and we can work out how to send the files. I think creating a book on the DS is great :D

I'm wrote you a mail, when you can write me a answer. Greetings :D


I haven't seen a mail from you in the mailbox yet. Maybe you can try again and write "itch" or something in the subject bar when sending a mail.

I send a mail with an Outlook account but i sent this 2 days ago, it's rare you dont receive this, i sent with Gmail account.

I sent this 3 days, ago, i send you today other with an Outlook account, Thanks and waiting an answer.

I've received your email :D and sent you a download link for the four templates I found that looks somewhat useable. I use a 15 year old InDesign program though, and don't know if they are on the updated InDesign program, but I think it should work fine.

I hope you have fun with your project and manage to complete the NDS book. I think people would be very interested in a book/guide for that system :D

I'm not certain, why you are investing this insane amount of time in creating these books, but it's surely not to get filthy rich.

1st: about the books themselves. Yes, they are "just" copy and paste jobs, but it's obvious how much work and effort you put into it and the results are truly excellent. You are doing an incredible job.

2nd: While you may not get rich as Musk by selling this stuff for pennies, I'd just like to mention that:  I) a lot of people truly value what you are doing. You may not hear that often enough, but it s like that. II) you are doing a incredible job in preserving the memory about these old games for the future. We already lost so much information about historical books, movies and music (not talking about the library of Alexandria). It's a tragedy. YOU aid our(mankind's) effort so that this is not (or only to a lesser degree, thinking of online-only games) going to happen to video games, by condensing and preserving available information in this way.

I'd just like to personally thank you for doing this. Not enough people do that. What you do here is (in a slightly different way) as important to mankind as programming open source software. Thank you.

3rd: I'd like to wish YOU a merry Xmas and happy new year. :-D

Best regards

An admirer of your work.

Personal annotation:

If you don't know where to continue (IF you choose to do so), the PC Engine might be a logical choice. Some alternative suggestions are:

Arcade Games 1980-1984, Sharp X68000, PC-98 or PSP.

If these library sizes are kind of deterring: the PC-FX, 3DO, 5200, Colecovision, Intellivision, Sega 1000 or CD-i have comparatively small libraries.

And then there are of course also those already forgotten systems (at least outside of non-specialist circles) like the Odyssey II, RCA Studio II, Arcadia 2001, Bally Astrocade or the Fairchild Channel F.

If you need some help, I might be able to contribute,


Wow! That's more praise than I feel worthy of :O Thank you very much. Your words means a lot to me.
You are right in that these PDFs don't earn very much. I am always interested in what internet creators earn, and maybe some want to know what I have made on these. I have made a little over $400-after tax-since February, which I think is actually very good for something like this. I feel pride in that there are people willing to pay $10 for a PDF I made/copy/pasted/whatever.  I find it crazy that someone find it worth so much.
The reason I make these PDFs is that I like it. I like reading up on a system and searching for information about it, editing and designing the layout of the pages. It does take a very long time though, and I'm not good at time managing stuff in my home life. I often get very obsessed when I'm doing a project and it eats up much of my time (I'm similar when it comes to video games, which is why I steer clear of online games :p I only play games with an ending).

I agree with the Alexandria library. Insane to think on what kind of wonders and information we lost.

I have promised (for the eight times probably haha) that this was my last book project. I hope I can keep the promise this time :p but it's very difficult when I get the itch (no pun) to start another project. A lot of the consoles you listed have been on my mind. I would love to continue from the FM-7 to other Japanese home computers, but they are a lot of work and because I don't know the language a lot of mistakes will occur. The PSP would also be fun, or the DS or Wii. But their libraries are huge. And the "forgotten systems" you lists have also been on my mind.

Thank you very much for your words and have a very great Christmas and new year!

Great works man! I guess you did not know with all the good intentions you are giving this away for 10 cents, one needs to pay at least $1.00 to get this deal due to the processing fees, which is still best deal there is! However I would like to point this out to you because there are people out there just simply take this for granted and making complaints. I truly appreciate everything you did and all the free PDFs!  


Hi . 
Yeah, I know the 10cent price is getting forced up to $1 - making it some click-bait shit. I don't know what to do though, because I want to sell it for 10cent and only way to sell something under a buck on itch is to sell it on 'sale'. I know EURO people have to pay the full buck, but I thought US people could get away with a 10cent pay. I don't know what to do though. I guess I'll bump it up to a buck, then just make a bundle with every other paid PDF and sell it for $1. It's a shame though for people who already paid for some of the other PDF/or doesn't find them interesting. It works on lulu.com though - I make 2cents on the $159 hardcover book haha.

This is 100% rad.


Great :D Thanks

Awesome! I bought PS2 and Arcade encyclopedia a few yars ago. I love your projects,

Thanks :D

love all your efforts... been particuarly using the ps2 one at the moment as a voyage of discovery.

Thankyou again 

The Drisk (RGDS podcast)

Listened to a few of the episodes of the podcast :D Really great. Think I'm becoming a fan :)

Do you plan to encyclopedia of games for ZX Spectrum and its clones?

Hi. Sorry for late reply. No, I don't think I will do one on Spectrum. The library is to large and I have never played one, so I wouldn't feel capable of doing one properly.


I'm looking forward to this one the most of every system you have written about to date. I grabbed all your books this morning. The free books I just took as free so as not to have so many silly transactions with Paypal and I offset that by making larger donations on the books with a price. I quickly browsed through a few books and the quality is outstanding. Keep up the good work my friend and I look forward to this book!


Thanks. That really gives me a happy feeling in my belly button. I will try to take my time with this project and not just rush through it.

I would like to send you a download key, but itch doesn't have a PM system. Do you have some way to PM you?
