After putting it off far too long, the forum has now been updated to the latest version. The old forum was actually too old to update easily, and relied on a mod that I only recently found for the newer version.

Please let me know if you find anything not working properly.

Oh, and one more thing, forum registration is open again :twilightsmile:

The artist who worked on this will be unavailable for several weeks, and I don't trust myself to mess with his files without knowing what works and what doesn't. If someone wants to experiment I encourage it, in the meantime you can try downloading the png/jpgs and resizing them on your PC before shipping them to your printer.

Well, what are the dimensions of each of the books?

Off the top of my head, they should be 9 inches tall. I'll provide accurate measurements once I get back home

Each book is 9 1/4 inches tall and 6 1/4 inches wide
9.25 in = 23.5 cm
6.25 in = 15.9 cm
I'm starting to think that the book size info should be added to the FAQ. Probably... Maybe... Perhaps... Possibly? :pipshrug:

I checked, and the dust jackets are already pretty much the sizes they need to be! Wooo!

Yeah, thats my only issue with these jackets. Steelhooves kinda looks like a demented anteater. If one could just trim that muzzle thing back a bit...
I don't mind the typos even ("Matrixes" and others...) Kinda goes along with Kkat's insistence on not editing the typos in the story itself.

Illustrator loads the PDFs (haven't checked either of the other two formats, but I assume they're the same dimensions) as 10"x~20-21" which seems big all around, but I haven't seen the books firsthand or had jackets made before to have a clue what this needs to be for sure, though I expect you'd want it just slightly too long for bends, but 3/4" seems a bit much on the top/bottom of it. Anybody know for sure that they got it printed with no scaling whatsoever? If so, how's it fit?

Scaled down to 9.25" (The exact height of the book) the spines surprisingly fit perfectly. The front and back covers images don't—they're off by a quarter of an inch at the far edges for both of them—and as a result the dust jacket flaps don't roll properly around the sides of covers, leaving the text wrapping around it.
