When thinking about the next manual to be vectorized I found that there are at least two design types of Vectrex manuals: a.) The all-grey-coloured manuals (Armor Attack, Berzerk, Scramble, ...) b.) The grey/black coloured manuals (Star Castle, Polar Rescue, ...). EDIT: c.) The white/black coloured manuals (3D Narrow Escape, ...)
From what I can see the grey design was the original and old(er) design; the grey/black design came later.
Here's an overview:
Grey front page design: Armor Attack (done) Berzerk (done) Blitz! Clean Sweep Cosmic Chasm Hyper Chase Minestorm (done) Rip Off Scramble (done) Solar Quest Space Wars Star Hawk Star Trek * (done)
Grey/Black front page design: Bedlam Dark Tower * (done) Fortress of Narzod Heads Up Polar Rescue * (under development) Pole Position * (done) Spike Spinball Star Castle * (done) Web Warp
EDIT: White/black front page design: 3D Crazy Coaster * (done) 3D Minestorm * (done) 3D Narrow Escape * (done) Animaction * (done) Art Master * (done) Melody Master (done)
I have U.S. versions of the games marked with '*' at hand. Are there wishes/preferences for the next manuals to be vectorized?
Thanks for your positive feedback, wazzal. :-) Your wish is my command: 3D Narrow Escape will be the next Vectrex manual². Let's see whether 50tbrd can provide the vectorized logo of 3D Narrow Escape, this would speed up the creation of the manual significantly.
Okay, I've scanned the Melody Master manual @ 600dpi. It is a bit of a large manual, the total file size uncompressed is 400MB (!). I've had to upload the pages individually to my Box account, but I can share the folder out I hope...
Thank you very much for your positive feedback and appreciation, centaura and wazzal! :)And thank you, again, Mayhem, for the Melody Master scan!
After a long spring/summer break I'll continue the Vectrex Manual² project. The Lightpen manuals are quite challenging and entiring due to the many pages and illustrations. And a problem with graphic conversion between Inkscape and Corel Draw had created some headache on my side. To avoid headaches and to keep me motivated, I've decided to lower the very high quality level a bit and rather continue with the next manuals. Once all manuals are available in decent quality, I'll do some refinement and polishing. Please note that we are speaking of many manuals and many months.
