Some of these documents contain the entire original manual.
Some contain only the quick-reference section, or a list of keyboard commands.
Others are simply strategies on how to better play a game.
I have not verified that these instructions are accurate. I don't
even recognize a few of these as Atari 8-bit programs. They are
simply a collection of docs that I downloaded years ago and had
forgotten about until recently. I transferred them from my 8-bit
to my PC via an Atari ST, re-formatted some of them (and fixed a
few spelling errors), and placed them here.
I hope to gradually add to this list, as I have quite a bit of
documentation I would like to see here.
If you find any errors, have any
suggestions, or just want to drop a line to another 8-bit user,
E-Mail me (Larry Richardson) here.
