    Alright well if you find a manual in there let me know we might finally get a game with a manual for both regions.

    The One Piece Red in mine only had a DLC code thing, but I bought mine used so I can't be sure.

    It was limited to GameStop (so was Tales of Hearts R).

    You don't have to be that jealous, the manuals are often just a few pages long describing the basic controls or similar in a bunch of different languages. For example, the WRC3 one is just four pages with some legal stuff in it (nice car on the front though). The thickest one is for Football manager, 70 pages. It makes the case pretty heavy. :)

    How many pages is the Tales of Hearts R manual? If someone doesn't mind checking their copy. Is it in color? I've started searching for the cheapest copy I can find of the PAL version just for a few pieces of paper lol.

    25 pages, black and white inside but the front is in full color and has the same artwork as the box. It's in Swedish, Finnish, Dutch and Portugese.

    It's tempting here too. I guess the only UK/EU manual ones I have right now are Child of Light, DBZ and Rayman Origins/Legends pack. Wouldn't mind MGS HD and Silent Hill.

    I can understand why it didn't get one, but I wish One Way Heroics had gotten a manual from it's LRG release. The old school DQ/W sprite style and sensibilities would have lent itself to it so well, along with item and character descriptions. Could have been a thick instruction booklet doubling as a thin guide, almost like the Final Fantasy II/IV SNES manual back in the day.

    I think the only PAL release I have is DBZ unless I'm forgetting something. Most of the Asian English ones I have contain a manual though. Yeah I wish OWH had a manual too, just seems fitting with the type of game it is. I hope Cosmic Star Heroine has one.

    Hmm, my Shinobido doesn't have a manual, but I can't be bothered to score a new one. :p It is a really fun game though!

    I actually just saw 2048Dan's post. I have Best of Arcade too. Looks like there's quite a few I'd want.

    Also New Little King's Story.

    I'd have to check which English Asia ones of mine have one. I don't know why my brain spaced out seeing all these. The only one I ever seemed to make a note of after opening was Project Diva f2nd.

    I can't get my e-manual for MLB15 to open. When try to open the electronic manual to read it it appears to attempt to connect to a webpage like a damn Switch game, but then gives me an error message that the server cannot be found. This is kind of messed up, I want to learn how to play the game but the manual doesn't freaking work!

    I want to look in the idea of doing some manuals for Vita games that don't have them, this would be for LRG to start with, though I'm not promising anything at this stage but the possible ideas;

    1) Set up template so user could get their desired paper and print, trim and staple themselves at home.
    2) Get publishers blessing to use their instructions/artwork and get a small quantity professional printed.

    I have only contacted a couple of publishers yesterday regarding this, so I will see what they say.

    I see above the following LRG Vita titles already have manuals, this was updated last Oct, do any other games contain manuals?

    Rainbow Moon
    Solder X-2
    Thomas Was Alone
    Xeodrifter

    That would be pretty awesome actually, to have fan-made manuals professionally printed in order to make our Vita releases truly complete. In some cases you could probably just have the e-manual professionally printed out however i've noticed on many games, there isn't a true e-manual and instead they just stuck a generic epilepsy warning where the e-manual should have been. Like my last post mentioned, MLB15 just gives you an error message if you ask to open it's digital manual.

    Volume from LRG also has a manual fwi.

    What a great idea!

    Not sure if trying to get publisher approval or to print the e-manual is the right way to go though, I'm afraid it will take too much time and effort to deal with those people and it will probably end up in a "no". Maybe go straight to the developers instead, ask for some artwork you can use to make a manual out of.
