Looks to me like a mix from Panzer General and Railroad Tycoon. Same hex-fields like in Panzer General, same railroad construction...

The manual is pretty bad quality too. Doesn't help much since you just can't see graphics in it.

I guess it is needed for the copy protection tough.

That's the reason it's included. It's not much use as a manual and the game is pretty self-explanatory but you need the manual text for the copy-protection questions.

The reason it says compiled and scanned for HOTU is presumably that's where Kon-Tiki got the archive from!

I don't know.

I'd guess it's not the only game that we've got from them or elsewhere.

And probably other sites are using archives from here, maybe even some of HOTU's came from here! It's just that we don't have anything in our archives that identifies where they came from.

And we're not passing it off as ours are we? The .NFO still says Cracked by The Underdogs and the Manual still says who scanned it!

Actually I'm only sure of two walkthroughs (and a copy protection) that were realy done by someone form abandonia (I wrote the walkthrough for Shadows of Mordor and Zak McCracken myself).
Don't think many people would bother - you could very well just give a link to a site with manuals, cheats and walkthroughs (there are tousends of them out there and it's all for free).

I think its fine as long as you give credit where credit is due.

If you edit a file to make it look like you did it, that would be immoral!
