I've picked up again the work on the Vectrex manuals. The manuals of the lightpen games are thick and have lots and lots of illustrations and graphics which need extra-time. Work will progress slowly due to my many other hobbies and duties.
In a vectorizing frenzy during the past four days nights I've finished the Melody Master manual². As usual, the Melody Master logo is designed by Anthony Holcomb - thank you very much, Tony! I'm proud that I could finish another Lightpen manual since these are thick and have lots of pages. If you should find any differences to the original please let me know. Apart from page 4 all pages should be almost 100% identical to the actual manual.
First time I see the Melody Master manual with all images included. I understand the hard work around the graphic design with these extense lightpen manuals, so I want congratulate you. I got Animaction (CIB) lately, and I see the most intricate manual, beside Melody Master, because the amount of graphics. Count with my support, case you need anything around. Good job!
After a long pause I continue my Vectrex manual² project. Animaction manual² will be completed in the next two weeks. (A sort of a Xmas present for whoever likes the manuals). Animaction logos have been vectorized by 50tbrd (Thanks!).
Thank you for all these awesome contributions to the Vectrex community. I have all the manuals, but I can imagine how much these would help people who don't (like people who just own Multi-Carts). This would indeed be a very big help to them. They look great and I will add them to my "just-in-case" backup. Are they/will they be hosted on the Vectrex Wiki or other similar sites as to be easy to find for those who are looking for them?
Thank you, Vectronic, for your kind words and your accolade! So far the manuals are hosted on my Vectrex webpage (German). Please note that the manuals are copyrighted by Anthony Holcomb and me and must not be distributed without our explicit permission.
I've spent some more hours one the AnimAction manual and am happy to have a first complete version. Some fine-tuning is still needed (thickness of lines), but apart from this the manual is finished. Please use "Refresh" in your webbrowser to see the latest edition of the AnimAction manual². (It feels good to have the completion of the last Lightpen manual in sight. )
