Why don't you just make an electronic version of the magazine, distributed on PDF to paying subscribers, in full color, and leave the printed version in black & white?

COLOUR is the correct spelling, "color" is a lazy American way which should not be used outwith the USA. I was annoyed when the same article was incorrectly spelled on amigans.net !

To be honest I thought it was in colour already, the cover is and that is enough for me. A B&W cover would look dated, but I do not see the need to go full colour for the inside of the mag.

The magazine should be cheaper !

I would of thought sourcing cheaper printing publishers or materials would make it cheaper.

B/W is fine, we dont need colour, we need technical info.

How to create libraries, how to create drivers, how to create monitor files etc.

How does the Amiga system work ? How to port a file etc.

How to convert a librarys functions to fully OOP classes in C++ ?

http://pothi.com/pothi/estimate-price

51 pages, A4 softcover, 50+ copies, BW interior, colour exterior, 70 gsm.

Price 127 Rs = 1.76 each GBP.

I don't need colo(u)r to be happy, but if you decide to print it that way I'd certainly pay those additional +2 .
Maybe you should convert the pictures to HAM before printing to give them a nice Amigan touch

Hmmm HAM converted pictures... It might be as quick to simply shred the edges to get an authentic HAM fringing look!

Any way Amiga Future guys. Keep up the good work. In colour or black and white - I don't care.

Could be separate versions available, just like with the CD. I'd vote +2 Eur sure, to get a color.

I do like Amiga magazines in color. I read Polish Amiga Magazine also, that's in color and I think it is better that way - just consider the screenshots, man!

EDIT* I am happy anyway, too.
