Gonks ...... Manual ?!?!

Sincerely, this

http://hol.abime.net/5727/manual

is not for a serious database

I have no other words to say this, sorry

A pdf created from screenshots of game ..... and you call it manual ?!?!

Furthermore there are already Notes and Screenshots about "in game" instructions

Please delete this false manual

This time it's not a broken PDF Retro, but the PDF consists of three screenshots. That's what Another World means and I can only agree.

Indeed, but it's a shareware/licenceware game. There is probably no real manual for it.

Nope, i'm too lazy to type out the text. The game doesn't look interesting enough for me.

Precisely. It's only there for convenience should people do a HOL search for manuals or collect docs. Would be silly to do this for commercial games with proper manuals. Still, if someone wants to type up the docs, we can replace the PDF. I'm working silly hours atm to do it and the game doesn't interest me enough either.

We could also create disk scan, for people searching for a label to put on own Gonks floppy disk

Why would you? Licenceware titles are semi-commercial, so usually the disks have proper labels and, in some cases, (minimal) packaging. What they usually don't have are printed instructions because you could easily save time and expense by sticking the docs on the disk in amigaguide/text format or, alternatively, in the game itself. I even have a few shareware titles like this (e.g. my shareware version of Twintris comes with a proper disk label, a small plastic case and an inlay IIRC).

@Dizzy
Thanks for typing up the docs I'll PDF it when I get a chance and add it to the HOL entry.
