You step towards the entrance to the galleries. Signs above the entryways indicate the items that are contained in each gallery. Towards the back, you notice a small alcove with a sign reading "Computer Game Forum". And you thought these had been lost forever!

Off to one side, a smaller gallery contains excerpts from the magazines, while a passage seems to lead to what looks like a library.

You also observe that some rooms sit empty, as if the Museum was hoping to expand its collection of Computer Gaming World-related items...

A tome sits on a pedestal in the middle of entrance to the galleries. You read: "This tome contains the Vintage Computer Gaming Reference Index, a 3.4+ million word index file covering the first 100 issues of CGW, the 2 CGF issues, and the entire run of 16 Softline issues. The index is a 24 megabyte ZIP file. Simply unzip the file to the directory in which you store your issues, ensuring that full path names are used. A subdirectory called "vcgri" will be created, which contains two IDX files. As well, a file called "vcgri.pdx" will be created in the main directory. Opening that file will load the index. Adobe Acrobat is required."
