Thank you, TrekMD , for your positive feedback. Likes and feedback are always welcome and motivate me.
Received the Bedlam logo from my local dealer (50tbrd , thank you!) and added it to the manual. Bedlam manual² looks much more complete, now. There's still some fine-tuning to do and then I'm done with this one. Suggestions for the next manual are welcome.
Great work. I made a start at vectorising the Bedlam manual a while ago too but never got near finished (though I was hoping to make a system for doing the conversion automatically from scans, including OCR).
Your results are far better, but here are the best results of my work just in case they're of any help:

Thank you for your accolade, Computer Nerd Kev. I had a look at your front and backpage of Bedlam. For an automatic conversion it's not bad. Yet, human conversion is still superior and more precise at the moment.
FYI, they're not scanned. They're meticulously recreated.
Right, quite some difference. Just scanned the manual of Blitz! and the scans are 45MB. The final Vectrex Manual² of Blitz! will be about 400kb - a nice side effect of the vectorization (which I keep mentioning ;-) ).
This week-end I had a "manual attack": Asteroid Cowboys, Floor Is Lava, and Blitz!. Reason might be the burn-down chart that I made for the Vectrex manual² project. According to the trend the estimated end would be end of 2022! Looks like I have to speed up a things a bit...
Just created the first three pages of the Blitz! manual². Should be finished in the next 1-2 weeks.
EDIT: A first version of Blitz! is done. Blitz! logo from 50tbrd is included (Thank you, Tony!). I'll do some quality checks, then the manual will be final.
