Missing Micro User scans

Post by Michael Brown » Tue Dec 03, 2019 8:29 am

Hi All,
I would like to add any missing instructions for Micro User games to my discs, however, there are a few exceptions with The Micro User/Acorn Computing scans on the 8 bit web page where scans of the magazines do not exist.

It may even be that the games still missing instructions may have been tape/disc extras with that issue and no instructions were included in the mag.
Below is a list of the games and issues that I would like to check through.

Blocbusta 9.04
Klect 10.12
Power Raider 10.7
Connect four/Make Four 9.01
Time Lapsed 10.05
Snake & Snake 2 both 10.07
Battleships 10.06
and Knight Game/Knight's Journey 12.13?

Thanks in advance for any help with these.
BTW if you have any of these mags, but cannot scan or take a photo of the instructions, then please could you at least confirm that the instructions are included or not.

Mick.

I acquired scans of all the Micro User and Acorn Computing mags from acornelectron.co.uk a while ago but I can't put my hands on them right now, and I won't be able to for a few weeks at least.

I wonder if anyone else has copies..?

the acorn computing dvds are still for sale on acornelectron.co.uk
& also TMU dvds too, sure now available on USB stick (quicker & don't turn brown after 15yr :shock: )

DONT buy the ones on eBay, ripping DaveE's hard work off :twisted: :evil: :twisted: [-X

I scanned the docs for these two back in October - did you miss 'em?

Thanks guys.

Yes, sadly I missed the post, but thanks Arcadian. I have now added instructions to Klect and BlocBusta.
