Post Microprose Sea Rogue

Sea Rogue really needs the pdf manual put back up this site, as it is a 170+ manual that without it makes the game very hard to get to grips with. Abandonia had it up, but were worried it was a HOTU doc, so took it down. Well HOTU are no more, so I would ask the manual to be put up again, so this game can really be enjoyed the way it should - because it is a fantastic one-off treasure hunting simulation from the simulation masters - Microprose!

Personally, I would like our own PDFs with a proper tag being added. We discussed this among moderators and admins and we want to scan our own. Big manuals like that would take a LONG time to scan properly (not to mention the size would be 30+MB) but it might be worth it if it means we're one of the few sources to have this manual.

no need to do that, because we already have Sea Rogue Manual a long time ago. Detail for that is in FTP-Thread.

Here's the link to get the Sea Rogue pdf manual - and it's only 8.8mb - not 30mb+!

Because it is typed out with inserted figures. Not a bad thing in itself, but executed badly in this case.

Yet it has all the info, and is just missing the back box cover and the coloured front page - making it 40k larger.
