Welcome to replacementdocs!

- Have you ever rented a game that came with no instructions?
- Have you ever bought a used game and found out later that the package you received didn't come with an essential map or answers to copy protection questions required to play the game?
- Have you ever bought a re-released game and then realized that they only included an Installation Guide, no game instructions at all?
- Has your wife (or husband!) ever just thrown out all your game manuals because they thought "you didn't need them anymore"?

If so, replacementdocs is here to help! We're here to provide you with those manuals for situations when you really should've had them to begin with.

The replacementdocs.com pledge
replacementdocs.com pledges to bring you only high quality scanned images of instruction manuals in their full, original format with all original artwork and other graphical elements intact. There will be no text-only documentation unless that is how it was originally released. There will also be no conversion to monochrome images or any other severe quality degradation.

 News::Welcome superfly to the rdocs Editor staff
We've finally got a new editor on board again. So, I'm very glad to welcome superfly to the rdocs team! He's already been making progress on our huge backlog of uploads, but he could still use help. So, if you're interested in joining him, please read the previous post for instructions.

 News::Dear spammers - Say hello to reCAPTCHA
So, I've decided to try something new to fight the seemingly endless battle against spammers.

Effective immediately, whenever you sign up for an account or make a forum post or comment, you will have to complete a reCAPTCHA test - the thing you've probably seen where you have to type in two words to prove you're a human.

I have included an exemption for anyone who is classified as a Frequent Contributor. Since you are the people that make this site great, you will not have to be annoyed by this new feature.

For the rest of you, I'm sorry for the inconvenience, but I'm hopeful it helps deal with the spam problems.

 News::Want to join the rdocs Editors?
As the pile of uploads awaiting approval grows larger and larger I think it's time once again to add to our editorial staff in order to help with editing submitted manuals and getting them up to our standards of quality. So, if you think you've got what it takes to help the replacementdocs team produce top-quality game manuals, download this quick test.

Instructions and further details are included in the RAR archive. We are requiring this test just to make sure that you have the knowledge necessary to do the job well and to make sure that you are serious about helping out. If you know your way around Acrobat really well the test should only take you a few minutes.

If the right person(s) come along, we may be adding to the staff within the next few weeks.

Also, if you have submitted a test during a past call for editors we probably still have your test on file. Just send me a PM to let me know you are still interested in helping out and we will keep you in mind.

 News::Uploads fixed - Added PS4 and XBOne categories
I believe I have the upload system fixed now. So people can feel free to resume uploading docs. I also just added two new categories now that the new consoles are out. So feel free to upload PS4/Xbox One manuals now.

 News::Site Update
I just spent a fair bit of time updating the site and fixing various problems. It's mostly under-the-hood stuff, so you will probably not notice anything different, but hopefully you will not see the "Access denied" message anymore.

This is also still a work in progress. I have not yet been able to get uploads working again. Hopefully I can take care of that in the next few days. In the meantime, please let me know if you notice any other problems. Everything else should be working as expected.

Thanks for your patience in waiting for this long overdue fix!

 News::Still here
A second new baby has been keeping me VERY busy over the past year, but I am still around.

I know that rdocs is in need of an update and general maintenance. The whole "Access denied" issue that everyone is seeing especially needs a fix. I just cleaned up a lot of it, but spam is still horrible for some reason. And it's even harder to detect because the spammers aren't even posting links in the forums - just a bunch of random sentences! It's bizarre.

I promise you I have not forgotten about rdocs... I do actually think a lot about working on the site, it just hasn't been a high priority for me over fatherhood and other side projects since this is still just a hobby and doesn't pay the bills.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.

 News::Spam spam spam spam
Everyone has been putting up with the ridiculous amount of spam on the site for far too long now, so I've taken some pretty serious steps toward dealing with that problem. First of all, I've gone through and banned several hundred spammers as well as deleting several thousand of their spam posts. Even with help from an automated tool to do this, my wrist is sore from the clicking.

I've also instituted a "new user" time period. When you sign up for a new account you will not be able to post links of any kind right away and the number of posts you can make will be limited. Even after you get past this new user phase you will only be able to post a maximum of 2 links per message. Period. Most of the real forum traffic here doesn't need links so this shouldn't pose a problem for anyone.

Additionally, I've added a new security plugin that scans for known bots, detects hacking attempts, and checks every site access against a list of "evil" IP addresses that are known for distributing spam and/or malware. This should effectively make the server a little more responsive since bandwidth won't be wasted on the hackers and spammers.

Hopefully none of these changes will affect your user experience in any way... but if you see anything strange happening, please let me know. On the good side of things, since this is a "real" solution (unlike my previous workaround of just disabling the comments system), so everything should be seamless and back to normal. The comments system has been re-enabled and all of that should be working well.

Anyway, I think that covers it. Hope everyone enjoys the new and improved rdocs!

SourceSeeker, first, the link in the FAQ is a dead link (the FAQ is pretty old and seems not to have been updated since it was first written).

Secondly, please do not downgrade the quality of your submission. You can split files larger than 7MB into sub-7MB files with zip or rar, and upload the smaller files. Please use a naming regime along the lines of "(game name)-(part number of total number).zip" so that the editors will know how many part files make up the whole and their order.

You might have to be a frequent contributor to see the pending uploads list. Anyone can search the uploads by setting the "search in" dropdown to uploads. If you see something in uploads you want, make a request in the forums.

For uploading large files, split into multiple zip files and use a naming convention that is obvious.
