Current Manual Scans in PDF Format
#1
Hello!

ONLYUSEmeFEET here, moderator of https://www.reddit.com/r/ngpc/ ! Manual scans from here were linked on my subreddit today, which is awesome, because I was looking for more manuals to read. However, I noticed it was difficult to read all of the manuals as separate images scattered throughout many posts, so I took the liberty of converting them all into PDFs for easy reading.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/0ByaVxOX...sp=sharing

Also in there is an (incomplete) Biomotor Unitron English scan (the link in the main thread here was dead but I found another source on atariage) and the European/Japanese Sonic Pocket Adventure manuals (from Sonic Retro). My goal was to have the most complete set of NGPC scans in one place. All sources can be found in the archive's readme file as I wanted to make sure everyone got credit.

If there's any mistakes in the order of the scans, let me know! Also, I noticed none of Wynd's scan links work anymore so I was wondering if those could be resurrected somehow.

I realize my first post on this forum is basically saying I took a member's work and modified it in a drive link, but I truly believe these manuals should be preserved and spread across the internet as much as they possibly can. Twice now, I've had no luck obtaining NGPC manuals (there's a dead torrent floating around along with Wynd's dead links), so I wanted to make sure that this time, everything is preserved. Sonic Retro's site also went down recently and if it stayed down, those scans would have been lost. If this forum went down tomorrow, every scan would be lost again and I'd be back to square one. So that's my reason for doing this. I'd love to see the files in the archive I've made all over the internet.

But seriously, if you have any feedback on the archive or things to add to it, let me know. And also, I love the NGPC to death (I created a subreddit for it!) so I'll probably stick around. I do really want to say thank you for providing scans for others to appreciate.

Hi ONLYUSEmeFEET,

I think I have my own Biomotor scan somewhere, and still some other manuals to process... someday...

Doesn't CBR or CBZ better than PDF when it comes to manual scans ?

I may go back and do CBRs sometime, but PDFs have better compatibility with a wider range of devices, especially mobile. I'd like to provide both formats (I slightly prefer CBR, myself) so in time, I should have both formats available.

Flav0r actually helped me out with a Biomotor scan and someone else found a few Neo Geo Pocket manual scans for me to use. If you have any more manuals to upload, I'd love to add them in for preservation! I switched hosting to dropbox https://www.dropbox.com/sh/rmma3xyya2604...i0nOa?dl=0 as you can download individual manuals that way and it's easier for me to add to the archive. I'll still maintain the drive link for a little while but dropbox is way better for this kind of thing.
