The CD-ROM “DiskMag-Pack” was a collection of all German, many English and selected international disk magazines from the PC demoscene. The collection was maintained from 1999 to 2004. It was possible to buy it.
This is the table of contents of the CD. The diskmags described here are available for download in the Scene.org archive.

The DiskMag-Pack is an extensive collection of different diskmags. We collected and sorted mainly German but also a lot of international diskmags on this CD. A complete list can be found in the HTML documents or in the list_eng.txt file. Also the time sortet chronology provides a good overview.
This cd was created because nobody has done this before. A typical scene CD like "Dreams 2" stores only a few diskmags but never a whole collection. That's why we created this archive. We needed a lot of time (several months) to sort the collection - we stored as many diskmags as possible on this CD. Then for every diskmag we added a picture, a description, and created the menu. And this because of Cream...
The readers of many diskmags regularly take part in an opinion poll. The opinion poll creates a list of the top 10 demos, intros and of course the best diskmags. In the 15th issue of Worldcharts from December 2002 the following results were presented:
3. Chemical Reaction
4. World Charts
6. Static Line|
In addition to that, we recommend WildMag, IMAgE, TAP.MAG, Cream, Suicide, Mars, Skyline and Platinum for all German readers. We recommend Gutter, Blister, Fistful of Steel, Ooze, Beyond the Horizon and Trip 2 Hell for beginners who are interested in ansi magazines. Very intresting newsletters are Demojournal, Static Line, Trax Weekly and the Hugi Newsletter.
