The manual cover hunt

I have a couple of manuals that I just need a scan of the cover. I'll update the list in this thread if I find more that needs to be scanned and remove those that got scanned.

Here we go:

Alien Storm - Manual-DE-ENG-FR (It's the whole instructions)
Apidya - Manual-FR
Aquaventura - Manual-FR
Fighting Soccer - Manual-DE-ENG-FR-IT
Fly Harder CD32 - Manual-DE-ENG-FR-IT
Indianapolis 500 (Original release) - Manual-DE
Iron Lord - Manual-ENG
Italy 1990 - World Cup File-of-Facts-ENG
Jug (US release) - Manual-ENG
Legend of Kyrandia - Manual-FR
Lords of the Realm - Manual-FR
Naughty Ones - Manual-DE-EN-DK - This time not the cover but the first double page of the German section is missing. It should say something like 'Naughty Ones - Benutzerhandbuch' on the left page.
Pacific Islands - Manual-FR
Panzer Battles - Manual-ENG
Red Baron - Manual-FR
Sim City - Manual-DE
Simon the Sorcerer 2 - Manual-ENG-FR
Space Ace - Manual-DE-FR-IT
Speedball - Manual US (The second page is missing. Compare to the second manual in HOL)
Spellbound! - Manual-ENG (This is the game by Lander, not the Psyclapse one)
Storm Across Europe - Manual-ENG
Super Tetris - Manual-FR
Team Yankee - Manual-FR
Terrorpods - Manual-DE
Typhoon Thompson in Search for the Seachild - Manual-ENG
Typhoon of Steel - Briefing-ENG (Here I need a scan of the entire 'outer' part of the manual, so front and back)
Vroom - Manual-FR
Xenon II - Megablast - Manual-ENG (Not the English/Italian one)

If you own the corresponding manual it would be great if you would consider scanning at least the cover

(P.S. If the format of the manual names looks familiar you might get a clue why I need those scans )

I've got Hired Guns and should be able to do these early next week.

I may also have Gobliiins - not sure it's 3 though

What format do you need them in?

JPG or PNG would be great. But any image format is fine really

I am moving house so everything is packed up, but I will be unpacking in a few weeks and will probably come across at least one of the above.

Another batch of covers have been added. Maybe there are a few that people could scan?

I've been trying to hunt down as many Amiga manuals as possible in the last weeks and mainly thanks to Carsten of Retro Commodore and Howard of Museum of Computer Adventure Game History who kindly gave permission to use their collections on HOL I have been able to add quite a few new manuals to HOL. Here's a little geeky list to show the progress:

Games with manual:
2418 - 26.06.2022
2503 - 03.07.2022
2550 - 12.07.2022
2560 - 18.07.2022
2592 - 24.07.2022
2627 - 01.08.2022
2662 - 05.08.2022

So around 250 entries now have manuals that didn't have any before. Additionally a lot of entries had new manuals/instructions, cluebooks etc added.

Special thanks to Independent who not only has constantly added his own manuals, but also has helped out with reworking manuals. Also special mention to a anonymous contributor from a1k.org who is contributing high quality manual scans from his collection.

There's still some material to go through, but now it's a good time to look at the HOL search for missing manual entries and check if you don't have the game: https://hol.abime.net/hol_search.php?N_nb_manual=no

If you have a manual for any of those games it would be great if you could scan the pages and send them our way
