PDFs are partially collected from internet, partially from my own scans, and a set prepared by Andrea71, a friend of mine.
I can upload the PIX Candidates on MEGA accounts, or please tell me if there's an alternative method to share with you potential update files. No DAT files are delivered for PIX Candidates because I suppose they need to be screened by Aral & the PDF standardization scripts. My files are organized, filtered with previous TOSEC releases and ready to be processed by these scripts.
All PDF files follow the TOSEC Naming structure, and in some cases, the files are coherent with my personal errata corrige DAT pack proposal... there are just renaming issues in few DATs, more in detail:




Errata Corrige DAT Pack (PIX-v2014-02-28)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------


------
Commodore C64 - Magazines - Dream (IT) (TOSEC-v2014-02-01)

from "Editons Fermont" to "Fermont" (Editons was a typo)

------
Commodore Amiga - Magazines - Amiga Byte (IT) (TOSEC-v2014-02-01)

Wrong year numbering, corrected
Anno 1 --> Anno 2
Anno 2 --> Anno 3
...
Anno 7 --> Anno 8

------
IBM PC Compatibles - Magazines - PC Gamer (GB) (TOSEC-v2013-04-06)

The issue 202 in the PC GAMER (GB) set is not a UK magazine, but it is US magazine, so it should be moved to PC GAMER (US) set.

game (
   name "PC Gamer - Issue 202 (2010-07)(Future Publishing)(GB)"
   description "PC Gamer - Issue 202 (2010-07)(Future Publishing)(GB)"
   rom ( name "PC Gamer - Issue 202 (2010-07)(Future Publishing)(GB).pdf" size 50530520 crc 3070e36f md5 d003cdf07f67dd359a44044ce9b1d983 sha1 8ffae01bde616f34575e7f86b764a43a4958ba72 )
)

------
IBM PC Compatibles - Magazines - PC Gamer (US) (TOSEC-v2013-04-06)

The issue 202 from PC PC GAMER (GB) is renamed and moved to "IBM PC Compatibles - Magazines - PC Gamer (US) (TOSEC-v2013-04-06_CM)"

game (
   name "PC Gamer - Issue 202 (2010-07)(Future Publishing)(US)[a]"
   description "PC Gamer - Issue 202 (2010-07)(Future Publishing)(US)[a]"
   rom ( name "PC Gamer - Issue 202 (2010-07)(Future Publishing)(US)[a].pdf" size 50530520 crc 3070e36f md5 d003cdf07f67dd359a44044ce9b1d983 sha1 8ffae01bde616f34575e7f86b764a43a4958ba72 )
)

------
Multi-format - Game Guides (TOSEC-v2014-02-01)

"L.A. Noire DLC (2011)(Bradygames)" renamed to "L.A. Noire DLC Volume 1 (2011)(Bradygames)"

game (
   name "L.A. Noire DLC Volume 1 (2011)(Bradygames)"
   description "L.A. Noire DLC Volume 1 (2011)(Bradygames)"
   rom ( name "L.A. Noire DLC Volume 1 (2011)(Bradygames).pdf" size 3083679 crc fb765f73 md5 30741eb8ab4c7b2a2cb3809ce5e4fd46 sha1 43eaca2b4c51495fa6d613c365beac74564576c8 )
)
This happens because in my next PIX Candidates I've included also the L.A. Noire DLC Volume 2/3

------
Multi-format - Magazines - C16-MSX (IT) (TOSEC-v2014-02-02)

from "Edizioni Foglia" to "Foglia"

------
Multi-format - Magazines - Guida Video Giochi (IT) (TOSEC-v2014-02-02)

renamed each file (It) --> (IT)

------

Multi-format - Magazines - Retro Gamer (TOSEC-v2013-10-01)


about the issue 110. It's not 2013-01 but instead it's the 2012 Christmas special, so all following issues shift by one:
Retro Gamer - Issue 110 (2013-01)(Imagine Publishing)(GB) becomes Retro Gamer - Issue 110 (Christmas 2012)(Imagine Publishing)(GB)
Retro Gamer - Issue 111 (2013-02)(Imagine Publishing)(GB) becomes Retro Gamer - Issue 111 (2013-01)(Imagine Publishing)(GB)
and so on until Retro Gamer - Issue 120 (2013-11)(Imagine Publishing)(GB) becomes Retro Gamer - Issue 120 (2013-10)(Imagine Publishing)(GB)
I know because actually I'm preparing the update for this set

------

wrong month corrected:

game (
   name "Sega Computer (1986-07)(Sega Software Support)(NZ)"

working on the next round of PIX candidates and following a discussion on another forum, in attach you find an updated errata corrige of TOSEC PIX (2014-02-28) dats (they aren't the latest TOSEC PIX sets, but we know that Aral was very full recently.. and latest dats are more or less the same of previous sets)

The new revision of Retro Gamer dat that I suggest has these new changes:

Quote
----------------------------------------
from number 18 the editor changed from "Live Publishing" to "Imagine Publishing", corrected
----------------------------------------
the pdf file inside the issue 003 was numbered 099, corrected
----------------------------------------
issues 105,107,108,109 have uppercase extension, corrected
----------------------------------------

these changes are added to previous suggested ones (about the issue 110 and the numbering). Anyway all is listed in the readme file.

hi guys,

in attach you find an updated version of DATs corrected for the next TOSEC PIX release.
These are the sets in which I recognized some naming issues (each dir in the zip file has a DAT updated and readme file to explain what is could be corrected)
