I have went through all the manuals and noticed a few mistakes (probably from copying and pasting) and a couple of manuals I have that you do not have.

 

On the Winter Games manual you have the part number as -031 even though on the manual it is -31.  On Planet Smashers you have the part number as -070 instead of -068.  Also on Planet Smashers manual A you have G.C.8.1990 instead of G.C.7.1990. On Ms. Pac-Man manual B, you have B.T.5.1986 instead of B.T.5.1988. For the sole Midnight Mutants manual you have Rev. A and I do not see a revision anywhere.  I see no revision on the Hat Trick manual either.  You have the wrong part number on the Food Fight manual.  On the Basketbrawl manual you have the copyright as 1988 instead of 1990.  You have the wrong part number for the Alien Brigade manual.  You also have the wrong part number on the Ace of Aces manual.

 

I have a Desert Falcon manual you do not have listed.  It has the same part number, revision, and copyright year, but is printed in Taiwan and has K.I.7.1987.  My Dan Kitchen's Tomcat: The F-14 Fighter Simulator is also different.  My part number is AK-046-03.

 

 

 

I have Tower Toppler manual B, Touchdown Football manual B, Pole Position II manual F, Mean 18 Ultimate Golf manual A, and Karateka manual B.  Who knows when I could get them scanned though.

 

Edit: I also realized I do not have a Donkey Kong, Jr. manual easily accessible.  I am sure I have one in a Donkey Kong, Jr. box somewhere, but not loose.

I don't have access to a scanner, hope this helps. I have five more (Asteroids, Choplifter, One on One, and two others). I can post them here, or mail them to you for proper scans.

Email is fine. Yes, I did a lot of copy/paste so I was bound to make mistakes. I'll review everything this weekend. I've been getting some new and missing scans from someone already, so I have a lot of work and updating to do. What I didn't put up and will probably also do this weekend are the owner's manuals. I have some and am missing some, so keep your eyes open for when I upload that page. This took a lot more work than I thought as I had to investigate pretty much everything. AA only shows one listing. Atariboxed sometimes has a different one or a PAL scan, and Atarimania doesn't have anything for the 7800 whatsoever. 

 

If you see scans that need replacing, please help. Some are a bit warped because I took them off Ebay on angles and Daniel fixed them as best as he could. Thanks for the help.

If you want to see what missing end labels and manuals I have the list here on the last page. I can edit this list as I can't on AA, so I wasn't going to post it here until I was done modifying what has been sent to me. If it's not on the list here, then I've received scans but haven't gotten to put it on the site yet.

By the end of the weekend, I'll update everything I've gotten. As for your F-14, that is the Atari 2600 manual part, so you may want to look at the title page and see if it says Atari 2600.

I thought that might be the reason as I do have the mislabeled cartridge.

I fixed everything you pointed out. Correcting some text is much easier than putting in manuals and creating new pages. I double checked everything you said. Yes, using copy/paste has a tendency of me forgetting to change things.

 

 

The most difficult thing with adding a new variation is if it's an earlier one and there are lots of variations. Because I'm keeping everything in order, if the new variation goes first or before others already done, then I have to relabel all the pictures along with relabeling the text in my document and all the variation names on the pages. I just got an early Robotron from someone that I'm going to have to rename all the scan pages of the two manuals I've already done. I'm anticipating having to do it more with other titles I'm receiving scans for.

 

Again, this is part of the reason why I never did the Atari 2600 games. Though I did several 3rd party for the 2600, the Atari itself is going to be a pain. And I have HUNDREDS (probably no less than 700) of manuals just for the Atari itself. Just a lot of work scanning everything.
