Mhhm, the title pic looks familiar. ;) Here is the original:http://www.kameli.net/nocopy/noc125.htm

tomaes - so....? :)
obviously it's made from a photo, that much is evident to anyone - no need to see the original. but compared with the original, the proportions and shading don't match very well, so it's just drawn looking at the model, nothing more sinister. in other words, what was your point? :)

thumb up for the greatest mag ever, of course.

saffron: I just browsed through the (no)copy archive once again and I suddenly felt the urge to share my a-ha effect. :) Plus, I had to smile a little reading the 'really awesome gfx' comment above. ;)

I dont mind "copying" either, as long as its not scanned and dithered or something like that. But well, MADE is a topic for itself.. @_@;
still thumbs up, we all love Imphobia

Sadly the magengine is totally flickering and makes it impossible for me to read all those articles inside. Of course there is also no chance to listen to the music. ;-((

Funny to discover some of my old and lame articles that were taken without my perrmission.. but I know of course who has (Jazz/Haujobb) handled them over to Sam & Darkness. hehe Wow, Mop/Essence was a staffmember of Imphobia - impressive! Many known names inside - I wish nowadays mags would also play such an important role and would be as big as Imphobia was...

Made did copy very much but he did not scan!! That is for sure! Just have a look at the No Copy site...

Personally i'm pretty confident it's a paintover.. the proportions and shadings ARE exact.. down to the last hairstraw (almost) they are exact matches..

Imphobia was simply so f*ckin' great. I don't know how much time I've spend reading imphobia, but it's fair to say that it's probably beyond the time I've ever used reading any books - and I love to read...

imphobia had lot of articles and lot of readers.. solid!

Imphobia #12

Imphobia #12 was released in July 1996; it featured roughly 2 Mbytes of articles, thus being the biggest issue ever. After the very nice title picture by Made of Bomb, the menu appeared,
featuring a well-done manga-style background picture by PL. Yet another time, the display is buggy, but fortunately the texts are still readable this time.

The fine music came from Shad of Pulse, Clawz of Oxygene, Dune of Orange
and Void of Reality. There were about 70 authors and 226 voters.

The Front News were split into two articles, A-M and N-Z respectively. There were six articles with advertisements and three with messages. The sub-sections of the Articles section were the same as in Imphobia #11. Some of the more interesting topics were Demo OS (the project of creating an operating system specific to the scene), Future Crew and whether it was really such a giant, Polish scene report, Brazilian scene report, DemoNews 314 (a fake issue in which the editors wrote what they thought the year 1998 would be like; read the review and analysis of it in Hugi #13), French nuclear testings and hidden parts in demos. The Coding Corner contained interesting articles about text-mode, e.g. how to display graphics in it, as well as mode X and SVGA.

The interviews corner was quite small: there were only interviews with Blitz of Halcyon, Mellow-D and Zodiak of FM, Kiwidog of Hornet, Unreal of Pulse, Mefis of Funk!, and Siren of Kosmic.

All in all this last issue of Imphobia was yet another great issue and a true pleasure to read.

Imphobia #13?

Imphobia #13 has never been released, at least not yet. Darkness
never declared Imphobia officially dead. But after 12 years, the chance that this magazine will be released in a foreseeable time is still zero. So we can assume that Imphobia is dead.

However, I found the title picture of Imphobia #13 on the Internet. It is located at GFXZone in Benj's personal gallery. So now you at least have a partial clue about what the thirteenth issue of the Imphobia magazine would have looked like if it had ever been released.

This and Scenial were among my favourite scene mags back then. A funny fact - when I ran Imphobia first, I couldn't run Scenial until reboot. I heard that two hated each other, so I suspect there was a special piece of code in Scenial to detect Imphobia's previous presence in memory :)
