    Does anybody here knows project64? Not the Nintendo 64 site.

    It´s http://project64.c64.org

    For all who don´t know it. It´s a game manual, software and hardware manual collection for the Commodore 64. They didn´t scan the manuals, They read them by OCR and put them as only TXT files on their site. That saves a lot of webspace, downloadtime and is easy to handle.

    I thought why don´t doing the same for sega systems.

    With enough help it must be able to create the same like project64 for sega.

    It´s only an idea. Let me know what you think about it. And habe a look at the project64.c64.org site.

    Not a bad idea maybe even a PDF format instead to keep some things like diagrams or pictures intact that may be needed but only if need ofcourse

    In that case, scanned manuals would be better, no?

    Well yea I know C64...

    www.computerbrains.com is the best place for the emu.

    Anyways back in that day you dindt NEED complex pics. ::Still has her C64 manual boxes in house:: anyways but for sega it would REALLY be best in pdf format. If we had a pdf archive that would be the best there is =D

    Hmm, yes PDF´s are fine. I think the only problem is that not everybody got Adobe Acrobat (not the reader).

    I mean the program to create PDF´s from OCR.

    I´m not sure, but is there other software that can create PDF´s from scans..

    I have Xerox Text Bridge, not sure if that´s able to create PDF´s.
