I'd love to see manual scans - I know there are a couple on pokemon-mini.net, but not all. And not English ver. of some.

The manuals are quite a pain to scan. :( I would almost prefer to just mail them to someone for scanning so I don't have to bother. But I'd rather not risk them in the hands of others (including the mail system). Maybe someday. :<

Wow, can't believe it took me almost a year to finish editing the scans, but I am done now and ready to add them to the page. I only need to find a good way to make them available, so... see you in a year. ;-)

Howdy folks! I did a little scanning this weekend. I scanned the manuals for Pokemon Puzzle Collection and Pokemon Pinball Mini (US versions):

Pokemon-Puzzle-Collection-Manual.pdf
Pokemon Puzzle Collection Manual Scan (USA)
(6.08 MiB) Downloaded 74 times

Pokemon-Pinball-Mini-Manual.pdf
Pokemon Pinball Mini Manual Scan (USA)
(6.06 MiB) Downloaded 65 times

It would be great to see other folks contribute what they can. I have a copy of Tetris on the way which I will scan the manual for as well.

Cheers!

i made you a 4 page sample file for my german Zany Cards manual.

is it any good?
(the file size is too big, though. how do you change that without compromising quality?)

pls, leave a reply or pm me for the complete set of 48 pages.

Looks good. You could cramp up the resolution a bit. Is the manual only black and white?

If you save the individual files as JPGs (and zip them up to attach here), you should be able to get a way with a very reasonable file size.

Quality Looks just fine. Could even be higher realistically.
This might be a bit more than most people are willing or able to do, but I like to pull my scans into Adobe InDesign, from there you can output PDFs, and specify the PDF. Downsampling to 300dpi is the common scale. just need to have page size measurements ahead of time. If you want to upload them somewhere as KR155E said, we can make them into an optimized PDF. I also like to descreen the images to remove the halftone texture.

Yes the Euro manuals are black and white since they include like 4 copies of the manual, each in a different language. They have to have bigger boxes than other regions.

Also any chance I can get my Pinball and Puzzle Collection scans added to the game pages?

I see, thanks for the explanation!

I have just added your scans to the database.
