Amiga Manuals

What manuals did the amiga 500 originally come with?

I just recieved the following (all the way from Australia):

1) A500 Users manual

2) Amiga enhancer software (featuring amigados 1.3, kickstart 1.3, workbench 1.3, etras 1.3)

3) Amiga basic english (for A2000/A500)

Am I missing anything ( the manuals are paperback)?
Somebody in canada is mailing me the another set.

I also have the original manuals for the 1011 external drive, A501 ram expansion, A520 video adapter (dont own that part since I have a monitor)

I make a habit of collecting all the manuals for equipment in my computer collection.

Sounds like you got the lot. The amiga pack that I got had F/18 Interceptor, kick off, WordWorth and Indian Jones. This pack had a manual that had information about the provided software. I guess different amiga packs had different software manuals, but I think when it comes to manuals on the A500 and its OS, you got all the stock manuals that would normally come with one.

Exclamation

In so far as the Aussie A500 pack's at the time went,yeah you had all the essential manuals. Although Miggy to the Max you were lucky to get Wordsworth. The A500 pack around 1990/91 had Kindwords 1,(or maybe 2), ship with it, in the pack I had, but like you had Indy & the Last Crusade,FA-18 Interceptor, & Kick-Off, along with some crappy paint program,(not Deluxe paint unlike our U.K. friends).

Post Manuals...

In The Netherlands a plain Amiga 500 came with a Workbench user-manual (with an entire chapter devoted how to use a Mouse), Amiga-BASIC booklet and an extensive Amiga-DOS manual. All manuals except the Amiga-DOS manual are in Dutch.

The crappy Aussie paint program was Fusion Paint.

Sorry, but I wasn't lucky to get wordsworth, I just had a crc failure in my memory banks it was indeed Kindwords.

Question

No probs Miggy to the Max! Geez, almost had me thinking Commodore might've been generous!!
BTW-Muzkat, Fusionpaint,thats the one,thanks.

It always seemed to me we got shortchanged here by Commodore in regards to starter kits for the A500. The U.K. packs appeared especially good. How did everyone fare in other parts of the world for A500 bundles?
