Has anyone recently downloaded the PDF of the Forgotten Realms Atlas from here: http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/120837/The-Forgotten-Realms-Atlas-2e

I heard that there were multiple pages where the scans were screwed up, leaving large white strips across the maps.

I've not. I've got the print copy, and it's not something I've felt a need to reference oft.

I'd be surprised if that was the case, though... The worst file I've gotten from them simply lacked OCR.

I have the print copy as well (one of my favorite Realms products of all time) but would like a reliable PDF so I can add map sections to the FR wiki.

Not sure where you've heard that some of the pages were "screwed" up in the scans. My copy's relevantly reliable. A few minor grumbles with the font transfers, but other than that, I haven't had much cause to complain.

When did you download your copy?

My PDF does not have that problem... sounds like the file is either corrupted or a bad home made copy.

Think I might just have to give it a shot.

I'd agree.

As for where I purchased my copy... that would be drivethruprg.

File could be corrupted, but it was downloaded from DriveThruRPG.

That's strange. Have you contacted their customer service and explained the situation with your copy?

They do periodically update their files. It could have been that the original copy did indeed have some issues, and they went back and fixed it.

That's good to know. Hopefully the one instance that I heard about was a fluke. Everyone else here seems to be happy with the copy they downloaded.
