"Looking for manual" thread
« on: June 28, 2021, 04:56:47 AM »
Hello folks,

I have a blog in which I play old wargames, and sometimes I encounter games with no manual on Internet, or at least no high-quality manual.

I am currently looking for the Manuals for Southern Command and for Torpedo Fire, if anyone has them. I only found .doc manual, which is sufficient for Torpedo Fire (but I would love to check the real one), and a bit less so for Southern Command.

Given there is no dedicated thread to find manual, I can just as well have this thread serves this purpose, so if YOU are looking for some manuals for old old games, please say so :).

If you're talking about two old Apple II games,  you can find their documentation (in doc form) on this page.
http://ftp.cuhk.edu.hk/pub/oldies/apple2/images/games/strategy/SSI/

The files also contain the dsk versions of the games.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, actually I had that one - I was really looking for the PDF. Oh, thanks anyway.

Easy enough these days to convert a .doc file to .pdf format.  I can do it if you like. LMK, post here.

Ah, never mind.  I see the .doc file is missing graphics, so I'm guessing you want a complete text/graphics PDF.

Hello,

Just pushing this up to state that I got a Southern Command manual... from Roger Keating himself.

I uploaded it here : https://archive.org/details/southern-command-ssi-roger-keating

Only Napoleon's Campaign by SSI (not any other Napoleon game, or AGEOD's Napoleon Campaign) to go :).

I own Napoleon's Campaigns (SSI) in the original box with all the contents.
What exactly do you need?

What I would LOVE is a scan of the manual + reference cards.

Ideally, it would be great to upload it on Archives.org (for instance what I just did with Keating's version of Southern Command, with his agreement)  so it is lost by no one, but else if you could send it to me....  :smitten:

Sending it to you was exactly what I had in mind.
