Wanted: Vectrex manual scans

Recommended Posts

Now that I have completed the ColecoVision and Intellivision US manual collections (and the Atari 2600 set is near complete also), I need something new to collect. Then I realized that I have almost no Vectrex manuals...

I know there are a lot of collectors around here so if some of you could help by scanning a few manuals that would be fantastic. I am looking for USA manuals (Vectrex branded, not MB branded).

 

Here is the first download pack, 9 game manuals plus hardware manuals.

Yeah it is a great resource of information. Although they don't really have manual scans. They have scans of photocopies of the Artmaster and Dark Tower manuals, and the rest are just text. I will add those 2 to my collection for now but real manual scan are still wanted.

I am selling a bunch of manuals for various systems over here..http://www.atariage.com/forums/topic/170050-game-manuals-for-sale/

 

I bring this up here because I am now willing to trade any manual on the sale on the list, free shipping in the US, for scans of a Vectrex manual. Scan 10 manuals and you get 10 free manuals. Good deal right... :thumbsup:

Here is AnimAction ... it is a rather thick manual as far as ones for the Vectrex go. 300dpi, nothing done to the files, so you can stitch up into a PDF.

I found a 3D Imager on craigslist and, even though I really wanted to keep the manuals for 3D Minestorm & Narrow Escape, I figured that I should keep them together as a set when I sold the imager on eBay, so I made some nice scans of those 2 manuals, printed them out, & have copies in my personal collection.

 

These PDFs are intended to be printed on a double-sided printer, flipping pages on the short side of the page, stacked & trimmed on a paper cutter, then stapled in the spine.

 

Thanks,

-Jason

The Vectrex manual² project has progressed, now there are two hand-vectorized manuals available:

Star Castle (PDF, ~200 kByte)

Dark Tower (PDF, ~200 kByte)

 

Copyright notice:
Private usage of the Vectrex manual²s is free. Commercial usage of the PDF (i.e. you get money for the electronic or printed manual directly or indirectly) is only allowed with my explicit agreement and permission. © 2014. Dark Tower manual will require explicit permission of 50tbrd in addition.

These scans are Bitchin! I love how high res and perfect they look!

Thanks for your positive feedback, adamchevy. :) I guess you refer to my Vectrex Manuals². These "scans" are manual vectorizations, this is why quality is that high. By now, 11 Vectrex manual²s are completed, I'd expect about 2 more years till all of them are vectorized.

Yes, I'm referring to your vectorizations, thanks for these .
