I think having a softcover option for POD would be great. I tend to keep multiple copies on hand and a stack of hardcover is fine but I like options and softcover is more friendly to thumbing back and forth.

Anyone ordered this in the past only to find they don't have it in their library despite having an copy with a watermarked order number?

Any idea on if the BESM splats from 1st and 2nd are compatible with the 3rd Ed book? Specifically wondering about Big Robots, Cool Starships.

It's all been rolled into one update package minus any setting fluff which is universal, making a conversion of the supplement is easy enough

Anyone know if the POD quality has improved?

I would like to second that question as I don't like the idea of buying a book that's going to fall apart in a stiff breeze.

Any possibility of a non-premium POD version? I have the original printed version but would just like a table copy (hopefully with errata incorporated).

I have asked the same question since the hardcover (glued pages) isn't usable as a table book.

Well, I got a print on demand copy of the BESM 3rd and I am REALLY disappointed. The paper is matte (not glossy) and the colors are WASHED out compared to the original book. Also, the binding is just glue, with no stitching at all. This thing will fall apart in no time. What a waste of money.

While this binding is okay for softcovers, I expected more for a hardcover. I will put in on my shelf and just keep using my pdfs and original book (the POD version was supposed to be my tabletop copy - not happening.

Thanks for the warning on the poor quality hardcover version!

An alternative you might consider, once you have the PDF file in hand, is to look up FedEx/Kinko's. You can upload the PDF to their printing website and they can print a two-sided copy in black & white with color cover for about $30. This should be fine for game table use. I'd get it with the comb or spiral binding which will then lie open flat on the table. Or just use the PDF on a lap-top. One advantage of the PDF is that you can annotate the PDF using any number of PDF Viewers which is like being able to add sticky notes to your electronic document. The other advantage is Bookmarking, which can create a table of useful locations in the book, like an electronic table of contents that you can organize to suit yourself.

One thing I forgot to mention about this PDF is that it is not scanned page images, it was actually printed directly to PDF. This means that you can search the document in a PDF Viewer as text, or copy text into a word processing document if you wanted to.

Any idea what was changed in 2014? I came on to download on my new computer and see an updated date in 2014.

Print on demand was added to the available format list

Indeed! If you are VERY LUCKY you might find a hardcover copy of the original for $60.00 on eBay but good luck! I's now considered a "collectors' item" so sells for over US$100. I was extraordinarily lucky to find one on eBay for about $40 + shipping.

Livres Scannés
Ces livres électroniques ont été créés physiquement en scannant les originaux et en utilisant les images obtenues pour faire les pages pdf. Chaque page est passée par un programme de reconnaissance optique ces caractères (OCR) afin d'essayer de déchiffrer le texte imprimé. Le résultat de ce procédé OCR est situé de manière invisible derrière l'image de chaque page scannée, pour permettre d'utiliser des recherches de texte. Cependant, un texte dans un livre donné sur un fond graphique ou avec des fontes manuelles ne sera probablement pas reconnu par le programme OCR, et ne sera donc pas pris en compte dans les recherches. Aussi certains livres imposants peuvent être redimensionnés pour correspondre au système, et peuvent ne pas avoir cette fonctionnalité de recherche de texte. La plupart des livres les plus vieux et en rupture d'impression sont dans le format images scannées.
Format électronique original
Ces livres électroniques ont été créé à partir des versions électroniques, et permettent donc d'utiliser pleinement la fonction recherche. De plus, la taille de leur fichier tend à être plus petite que celle des livres scannés. La plupart des livres récents sont dans le format électronique original.
