thanks for the extra vigilance. I guess the original contributor focused on the English parts only to have time for other contributions.

I wonder how things would look mixing your scans with the current manuals?
Perhaps it would be better to separate each laguage sections.
A bit of guidance by the top HOL team would be welcome I guess.

No idea. I did not see any credits in the manual that Tweeky uploaded. And MG don't have credits for any release, so I suppose that there aren't any credits in-game.

It does look a bit scary (at least for a child). It seems the eyes are also a bit red in this other Sooty game:

If "Tweeky" his manual is a copy of Original Manual, then no splitting!

Well, we currently have a partial manual (only English pages).
Tweeky has scanned the pages in German.

So either we merge them together (not sure of the quality of the result) or we ask Tweeky to scan the other pages to make a new manual.


What do you advice? (actually it happens for the 3 separate manuals of the game)


Thanks for the screenshot Tweeky, at least it will help fill the developer and publisher parts of the entry.

-> http://www.mobygames.com/game/sootys-fun-with-numbers/
-> Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Atari ST, Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum

But thanks for the intention

And I can't add conversions until the entry is created (and if I keep posting here, it won't be done )

1) Regarding Sooty's fun with numbers, the entry is created:
http://hol.abime.net/5954

I am currently adding the conversion listing. I am trying to double check the info from MG for conversions they don't have screenshots of.
C64:http://www.lemon64.com/?mainurl=http...hp%3FID%3D2378

The issue is with the supposed Atari ST version. Not found anything on Atari mania nor Atari Legend. Neither a disk dump on Planetemu (old set). So for now I will refrain from adding it.

The manual also mentions a BBC B version. I am not familiar with BBC computers and consequently database dealing with them. Anyone has a link that would confirm the conversion?

Let's wait for mai's answer (or someone else). I guess you have other things to focus on.

a scan of the complete manual from one source is of course the best solution, instead of merging parts from different sources.

Thanks for all these, I started to add some of those.

Funnily now we can see in disk scans for Elvira II that the English disk and German disk are printed the opposite way :

Frankly, I don't know. Perhaps TCD, mai or another super-contributor have had a similar case?
Otherwise, I will need to ask to a HOL core team member (sadly Dr Bong is a bit busy at work currently so it may take a bit of time unless Cody happens to read these posts in the meantime).

I had major problems with my PC during the last week(s), but I sorted most of it, so I'll start adding things to HOL again next week. Thank you very much for the contributions Tweeky

Thank you for the uploads Tweeky

For the next scans (or if you still have the 'raw' material around): We have updated the resolutions to 1024 pixel width for boxes and 640 pixel width for disk scans. Don't worry about these ones if you don't have the original scans anymore, but it would be great if you could these formats (or just the raw scans) in the future

Edit: Adding them now btw.
