Holy. Living. Crap!!

Never mind the Traveller things (which is cool) - they've got a shedload of OTHER stuff from all the major companies. They're making all those books available as PDFs?!

Jeez. This could change the face of the whole RPG industry if it takes off!

They are eBooks unfortunately, and I can't seem to get the DRM stuff to work. Plus some of their stuff is pricely compared to the prices that go on RPGNow.com

Yes, but they have more of it. And new stuff too. And by god, they've even got Wraith: The Oblivion books! *swoon*

The DRM doesn't look too bad though:


From the FAQ
Quote:
By default, we package our books with rights that allow you to print unlimited copies, copy 10 selections of text (or 10 pages if a selection spans multiple pages) to the clipboard every 10 days.

Hmm, Mage the Ascension books. Call of Cthulhu PDFs (coming soon).

Well I'm not buying anything off them until I can get the free downloads to work. At the moment they just open up an empty version of Acrobat and it sits there, no data coming down.

Well, I got it to work... you've got Adobe Acrobat Reader 6, yes? It won't work on earlier versions. How far did you get with it?

Yeah, I was just gonna post that you need Reader 6, how annoying for me at least. My Mac only has OS9.1 and I need at least 10.1 for Reader 6.

I do notice that I only need Win98 for Reader 6 which works back to about OS8 on the Mac so what's up with that? Oh well I guess I'll have to finish reintializing the old PC to check it out.

There's a Troubleshooting Guide there in case you have problems with the DRM. I dunno if that would address any of Ben's problems.

EDIT: Me no can tell when to use href or URL [img]smile.gif[/img]

On another issue with the site is anybody else having problems with logging on with IE? I keep getting a "Data Encryption Error" when I try. Is this just another Mac issue? Not that I expect anyone to know, just asking on the off chance.

Nah, when I try to activate my Acrobat it opens up the blank reader and just sits there.
