Frederic,

Please let me know what you experience, as I just downloaded the issues by themselves and from the bundle without an issue, and others have ordered them since your order. At this point, it could be with your particular order that only WGV can solve or there is an issue on your end - something odd with your browser, etc. Since I'm not there, it would be inefficient to troubleshoot.

Good luck and thanks again for the purchase.

Hello,
I have purchased this BattlePlan Magazine Bundle. But issues 3 and 4 don't appear to be ready for downloading, although marked as such in the bundle description.

Thank you for your purchase. Since you are the first to mention this after hundreds of bundle sales, I think that something may be going on with the wargamevault site, because reviewing on the products in question (Iss 3 and 4) are available for sale and thus available to download. You would want to contact WGV customer support as they manage the site. I will forward them your issue, but here is the contact us page: http://www.wargamevault.com/pub_contact_us.php?site=wgv

For what it is worth, it does look like they made some changes to the website during the past 48 hours, so perhaps that is affecting your order.

Thank you,
Past Into Print

Product Information

Format
Scanned image
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
