Scribus how-to
>>221665 (OP) 
Proud to be part of this.
I was working on a Dead Space review that i was tempted to finish in time for this number but thought it would have been better to hold for the next one, as this seemed to have enough content already.
unlike the previous one that i found a bit lacking
I wonder how you guys do stuff like picking the cover behind the scenes though, as there's was no mention of this one nor the previous one and they both came out as a surprise.
How do you get in contact for stuff like that?
Replies: >>221671 >>221672

>How do you get in contact for stuff like that?
if only there was a place where everyone could post things related exclusively to the magazine or something like that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After many delays, technical problems, and niggerpilling, issue #7 finally sees the light of day. Most of the content is from months ago as you can probably tell however there's some new stuff that I picked up a few days ago. Funnily enough, the day I finished #7 and decided to post it was the day zzzchan went down (the 22nd/23rd), so you can imagine my frustration.

Note that all Sleepy Station issues are permanently archived here: https://archive.org/details/SleepyStation where you can read them online or download them all in one go.
By the way, we have a new Shotgun Rating template! Available for GIMP and Krita here: https://files.catbox.moe/w3dfu6.zip

>>221669
>Dead Space review
I would love to read that, do you have a draft of it?
>picking the cover
It's always art done by anons on the board except in issue #3 usually pulled from the drawthreads unless an artfag intentionally draws something for the magazine.
>came out as a surprise
Covers should be a surprise, showing them early ruins the excitement of seeing a new issue release. Also the cover is always the last thing made after all the articles are finished and counted, so no point showing it by itself. If the cover is done the issue gets released.
>How do you get in contact
We do all the editorfagging in bumplocked /b/ threads away from disturbances, and when zzzchan is down, as it was yesterday, we use homing pigeons.

If i knew, i would have tried releasing something more to reach at least 40 pages like previous issues, maybe a few more fake ads or something, as i think this issue had a good number of reviews.
>>221672
>I would love to read that, do you have a draft of it?
Maybe i will post a preview of it later.
I can't right now as i am shamefully phoneposting
Hope you liked my Xeno Crisis review and the fake Ads.
If i could go back at it, i would rate Xeno Crisis 6.5 rather than 7, as i realized i had too much criticism for it to deserve a full 7, but what's done is done.

The cover looks lame tbh.
I thought you were going to take notes from picrel.
>>221681
This is a concern I wanted to raise myself, it doesn't have the extra flair of #5 with the original logos included nor any of the suggestions implemented in the 6 mock most of which looked like good ideas.

>>221681
>>221682
I tried adding the original logos but they either had clashing colors or covered up Serious Sam. I did add a barcode and some characters on the back cover though... Screenshots and/or standalone graphics like in >>221681 might be doable but only if the space allows. Covers should have a big prominent character and lots of blurbs and extra graphics, but there's usually very little space.

I don't know why the editorfag didn't use the Onirism loli some drawfag did for the cover, since it was ready and done.
I first thought that it had to do with the fact that it was just the character with no background, but the Serious Sam that got the cover in her place is pretty much the same.

The fact is that no other review in any other issue took that long to render like this one.

The Control review is very well done,  but the anon who did it shouldn't have used 20 Mb png pics as the PDF takes forever to render when you reach that review, quite annoying.

Good stuff on getting issue 7 done, everyone.  I was concerned the project might have hit a serious snag and gotten mired but I knew you'd all pull through.
I think that, since this issue had less pages than usual and the No Games comic anon didn't post the continuation, you should have put more pages of Rad Dude comic, since apparently the anon who did those made hundreds of them already.
It was a good issue nonetheless.

You overestimate Windows 98 but I agree with the rest of your post. When exporting PDFs from Scribus I try to strike a balance between low filesize and high quality, not just for reading on HD screens but also for printing, so I understand that some pages may be a bit too heavy for some machines... You could try converting the PDF to a series of (low res) images using ImageMagick or similar and reading those, shouldn't take too much memory.

I don't think that's your (editor?) fault, unless you also made that article yourself.
I think the anon who made the article should have just used JPG pics for the screenshots, i tend to avoid using big file size pictures in my own articles for that very reason.
I mean, apart from when you need transparent pics, that you are forced to use PNGs is alright, but i think that for the game screenshots 1280x720 JPEG pics are good enough, hell put even 1920x1080 pics if you want, but keep them as JPG.

I never know how to write an ending to these things:

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge

Good old fashioned co-op beat 'em up goodness.
Who says impulse buys are a bad thing? Well... Anybody with with a functioning brain would say that, but I guess this time was a pleasant surprise. Myself and a friend of mine decided to reunite after a long period of absence over a mutual jelking session and a game reminiscent of those near and dear to our hearts: TMNT Shredder's Revenge. While he grew up with an arcade stick up his ass, I was molded by my off-brand "9999in1" NES cartridges. One of those 9999 games was "TMNT 2: The Arcade Game". I remember spending weeks playing it (and sometimes TMNT 3: The Manhattan Project) with my upstairs neighbor. Good times. This re-imagining or spiritual successor or soft re-boot or whatever the fuck you want to call it, is a lot of fun as well. Developed by "Tribute Games", who have at least 6 other pixel-styled games behind their belt. >(You) might be familiar with "Wizorb" or the more recent "FlintHook". Shredder's Revenge looks great, sounds good and feels tight. Even with 200 ping online play I've only encountered some glitches two times, both resulting in my turtle shifting slightly to the left. You can play it solo or with up to 5 other people (hate to see how confusing that gets, especially if everyone picks the same turtle) in story or arcade mode (as well as survival mode if you cough up for the DLC). The difference between the two is that in story mode, you accumulate XP, which expands your HP bar, your lives, your dong and special moves. Arcade mode locks you with a default preset and removes all the cutscenes and side-quests, but allows you to adjust extra mutators. For example: "Enemy death explosions now hurt you", "3 special charges given at the start of a level", "No revives", etc... Each character plays a little differently, even turtles differ in terms of damage, speed and range. We all know Don excels at range, Raph will do the most damage and Mikey will be 3fast5u. Apart from the turtles, you can pick Splinter, April O'Niell and Casey Jones. The aforementioned DLC also adds 2 characters, Usagi (furfag) and Karai (footfag). I had the most fun with fast characters like Mikey, April and Karai. April is especially fun thanks to her use of filming equipment as weaponry. Her super sucks though. In multiplayer, you are allowed to help a co-op buddy up by exposing yourself for about 5 seconds, and lend a single point of health with a simple high-five when you're both up. You can also be a dick and pick up every pizza, which can now also grant additional firepower instead of health. There are a couple of "Family sized" pizzas spruced around levels too, so even if you are a selfish fuck, you'll still heal the entire party.

yes and no
the survival mode takes place in new arenas, but arenas are one screen with different backgrounds. Some have falling hazards, some don't, I haven't gotten too far into it. It's has a rouge-lite element where you only get one life and pick between 2 bonuses after you're done with an arena. Your ultimate goal is to collect enough crystal shards to form like 7 different crystals. Takes a while.

The first page needs more screenshots and renders since it is the one that introduces the review, maybe this way it will end up being one page longer, but it is not a problem, we already had 8 pages reviews, after all.
Try adding a screenshot between every topic treated, for instance between "Dark souls with guns..." and "Some backstory".
Replies: >>224679

Yeah, the first page is lacking. I'll move the gun render someplace else as well in addition to what you've suggested.
Does it read ok? It doesn't look too boring, does it?
For as much as I've written down, I still feel like I've failed to do my love for the game justice.

Scribus offers a very short list of colors by default.

To pick your favorite set go to Edit -> Colors and Fills and pick a set from the dropdown menu on the right.

I am the anon who did the Project Zero, Mario Strikers, Takeover, Xeno Crisis reviews and the Daikatana, Hitler drink, Ouya 2, Zelda, Subscribtion ADs.
I think i started too many articles at once, but i am currently working on these reviews:
>Dead Space 
I think i need to replay the game once again to refresh my mind about it
>Gotham Knights
This won't take long to be finished, point is, i haven't touched it in weeks (the review i mean) and need to go back at it asap
>Nier: Automata
This is still in early stages but i like how visually is turning up
>Bud Spencer and Terence Hill: Slaps and Beans
I got the graphical part but still have to finish the written review

So far, the Gotham Knights one is more likely to appear on next issue as it is the one in a more advanced state compared to the other ones.
I would like to have both that and Dead Space to be ready for the next issue but i can't promise anything.
Then i would also like to make some more fake Ads too if i can.
>>232121
I almost forgot that i am also doing a review of 
>Project Zero: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse.
At the moment i mostly did the graphical part while the written review is still in the early phase.
As for the Dead Space one, i think i also need to replay this game again to refresh my mind about it.

Here's the Gotham Knights review
Finally done:

https://litter.catbox.moe/uy95l3.zip

Hope you niggers will enjoy.
This review was basically done weeks ago, but the graphical elements were a pain in the ass to position in a way that made sense, without leaving too much empty space between paragraphs or leaving too much words and not enough pics to break the wall of text.
I was wondering, should we involve other boards not to make the articles but for stuff like the fake ADs?

Man, honestly i had no idea what was wrong with it, i thought that maybe it didn't open the pics because i had the "your work folder" folder on the desktop and you had it located elsewhere.
Once i moved the pics of the Battle League review in another folder, and when i opened the sla file again the pics were gone, so i thought that was the reason.

Scribus always stores the location of images/fonts relative to the location of the SLA file. So to make it easy on yourself, move all images into the images/ subfolder before importing them into the article you're designing. That's the advice I would give anyone using Scribus...
Another piece of advice is trying to export your article as PDF and seeing if any errors or warnings pop up, those are always helpful.

Very good. You need to add drop shadow to the logo at the top, and make the tracklist stand out from the text surrounding it somehow (change font size, apply italics/bold, add color?)
Also the background doesn't cover the bottom edge of the page, I can see a thin white line there. Enlarge the background to fit the page, the exact page dimensions are 210 x 297 mm², you might have to enter either of those numbers by hand if the scaling tool fails you.

I think both comix can coesist actually, but not having a proper conclusion to your comic sucked.

>doing a fake listing ad with the covers from the photoshop thread
Genius idea. Problem is though this edit seems more spiteful and cantakerous than fun. I can't imagine anyone laughing at
<GameScam - power to the crooks
<we can give you peanuts for them and then resell them for a few bucks less than new!
<*If you give us your console, twenty games of our 	choice, your car, your wallet...
no matter how much you think fits Gamestop. It sounds like you're ranting, not telling a joke. The fake game covers alone should carry the humor through the entire ad, and if you then want to add some just try something silly instead:
<GameStoop - power to GameStoop
or perhaps being more subtle with the jokes, like selling Natsoc Dinosaur for $88.14 or $88.41; or changing the used listing from $50 -> $49.98 to $50 -> less.
The fake Silent Hill 2 remake ad was so good.

No, why should they? In what way would you be praising second hand game retailers if not every second sentence in your ad was about beheading its employees?
If anything it should be the exact opposite, just lighthearted fun at the expense of shitty businesses. Reminds me of how everyone's complaining the webring's too bitter and cantakerous to be fun to be around anymore.

No you fucking idiot; everyone knows there's a SH2 remake coming out. No one would believe Ada with a photoshopped wig is a serious attempt at modding 2001 SH2, but most obviously a jab at Konami outsourcing that SH2 remake.
Humor's meant to be about poking fun at something, not screaming at the reader he should really hate this or that. Let him or her connect the dots and let the punchline kick in. Best of all about that fake ad, it aged like fine wine now that more footage of the remake has come out, from the Unreal Engine logo down to the QTEs.
I've been lurking the Jackbox thread and it's not like there aren't anons still capable of humor around here. You've got a great ad idea, don't go out of your way to ruin it.

I don't understand it either, why turn down nuance and subtlety for an outside public that doesn't exist? The joke's already obvious as it is, and a normalfag would get immediately turned off by the content of the magazine or reading for that matter.

I would say that's split between a handful of failed normalfags lashing out because making "own the libs" the sole basis of their identity didn't get them pussy and rapefugees waiting for their bans to expire elsewhere who say that we're "bitter" because we aren't total niggerbrains like they are.
>>235898
Here we have an example of the former.

>>235902
Stonetoss became "popular" because, like Ben Garrison, it was snowcloned to death. The reason it got far enough to get that kind of attention at all is because unlike (You), that fag who did the original ad, and every other political cartoonist in history, the artist has some basic understanding of how to do comedy in a visual medium.

Stonetoss became popular because he gets the point across by using a universal launguage that reaches everyone, from the board user who knows what's up to the average normalfag who's mostly clueless.
His goal is obviously trying to open the eyes of the most oblivious of the normalfags while giving a chuckle to those who are more aware of things, and like him or not, he does that well.
