The file for this is massive, almost 200 MB for 74 pages. To put that in perspective, the DCC RPG is over 500 pages, and is only 85 MB. The GURPS Basic Set is also over 500 pages, and comes to less than 20 MB. This is a fine product, but why does it need to be so big? Space on my iPad is limited, and the big file is slow for the PDF reader.

They didn't remove certain redundancies when they converted to PDF, as a result the file is much bigger than it should be.

I had the same problem and I was just trying to open the preview.

Hopefully this is fixed now. New files uploaded, one high res, one low res.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
