Could we get a code to own the regular version with this? That will be only solution to be able to buy bundles with this version of the Handbook. You are losing sales because of this difference of covers. I can see it being a different physical book but both pdfs should be the same.

I am having an issue with purchasing your bundles -- my 7th Printing (Alternate Cover) doesn't register with bundles.

I think even if we were to add the Alternate cover to the bundle, it would then still try to charge you for the standard if you didn't have that one. ~ Tim

There are two files in my downloads, both with the exact same names, but with different MD5 sums; thus they are distinct files. What is the difference between both files and if there are differences, how to tell which is which?

Also, any chance you might consider uploading a higher resolution file? Illustrations at 144-150DPI isn't the worst, but seeing as how the 4th printing of Monsters & Treasures has a full 300DPI resolution for it's graphics I was wondering if you folks couldn't do the same for this digital tome?

I downloaded both and had a quick look. They seem to be identical. But I didn't spend too much time looking for differences.

Alright, thx for the feedback. I'll keep 'm both alive on my hard drive for now though. :) And actually, come to think of it, given that the files are watermarked and thus modified each separately by the DriveThru watermarking process, it's logical that their MD5 sums don't match even if their contents (minus the watermark) are identical.

@GeoCentric -- Yes, your standard copy should have been updated, but unless you backed the kickstarter at a specific level, you will need to purchase this to get the new alternate cover. Thanks! Tim

@Robert -- No, not really, a few art pieces but the game is the same. There is an alternate cover that will be for sale soon but the only difference in the two are the cover. Thanks! Tim

Do those of us that have had the digital PH for years have to purchase this to get the alternate cover?

Hi, I have the 6th printing. Does this new book add anything new to the game? Or is it just new artwork/layout? Thanks, Rob.

Original electronic
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.
