What is diskmag?

It will be distributed as ROM file.You will be able to read it using gamepad (emulator or flashcart).

How often?
Every 2nd month.

I will do graphics and music (hope not alone - other chipmusicians will support it too!).Coder will do engine (hypertext like?)Authors/writers will do reviews (games,demos,hw,interviews,top10 homebrew,top10 vgm).

Shouldn't it be called a cartmag in this case? (for that matter, Stuck Somewhere In Time is a musiccart, not a musicdisk)
Sik is pronounced as "seek", not as "sick".

I think first you should put effort into getting the content, arrange it up, create some mockups and then you'll have something concrete to show to someone who will be implementing things. It'll narrow down the scope and allows to focus on exactly how to make the content presentation a reality.

OK I will do.
Best will be to have some kind of universal engine:
- txt file for text with some kind of script (like html)
- vgm or tfm music player
- picture viewer (pixelart -> png/bmp to sega format)
- reading up/down page
- left/right next page
Animated gif? For intro?

Perhaps you could use something like Marp as a starting point:

Basically, you could parse the markdown source, and generate C files from it. Image conversion would be needed, and perhaps text compression, too.

Another option would be to use Markdown directly inside the ROM. It's pretty easy to parse:

It would be fun to do something like that :mrgreen: like our old retro diskmags
Simple Menu and articles or picture. 2 plans, one for title article and number of page at the bottom and the other plan for scrolling text.
