 News::Non-English manuals
A feature that's been sitting on the backburner for a few years now...

and it's still not where I'd like it to be, but we can now officially call replacementdocs an international archive.

As of today, there is a new drop-down selection that must be made when submitting docs - Region/Language. Currently we have a list of 17 countries that are likely to have video game documentation specific to their region. Additionally, you can specify if a doc is Multi-Language as many European releases are.

When you specify a region, a prefix will be attached to the document type. This prefix will be based on the country's IANA-assigned domain code (the two-letter code that identifies website domain names for a particular country). For example, a manual from Germany would have "DE Manual" as its doc type. An install guide from Spain would be "ES Install Guide". Multi-Lingual docs will use "ML1" as a prefix. Games with multiple Multi-Lingual releases will increment the prefix: "ML2", "ML3", etc. Any docs without a country code are assumed to be of United States origin.

There are some limitations, however. There is currently no way to search "only German docs" for example. There is also currently no way to know which regions/languages are contained in a Multi-Language doc. I would like to add these features eventually, though.

Note that our list of 17 regions is based on the most common game release regions. However, if you would like to upload docs from other regions we will be glad to add more regions for you.

In the past, I have requested advisors for each Non-English language that we support. While I do think that there will still be occasional need for this, the editors and myself will make our best efforts to identify and properly deal with Non-English manuals ourselves.

I think that covers everything... bring on the Non-English manuals!

 News::Big site news
First of all, let me say thank you to everyone who has helped this site grow into the archive it has become today. Unfortunately, I will not be a part of the process for much longer. replacementdocs is coming under new ownership and will be transitioning over the next few weeks. I will remain here to ease the transition period as Google takes over general management and maintenance.

Yes, you heard that right, Google. I received a very generous offer for the site from Google who are apparently looking to expand their Google Books program to include game documentation. replacementdocs will eventually be shut down as Google launches their new service which will be called Google Manuals. It will be launching after replacementdocs has had all of its assets converted over to their proprietary e-book format.

This change in ownership is effective as of today, April 1, 2008.

 News::ZX Spectrum update - part 2
And another batch of over 40 Spectrum docs from muguk are posted. Whew!

These contributions have made the Spectrum section our 6th largest section. That's actually quite an accomplishment considering the top 5 are heavyweights like PC, PlayStation 2, and NES.

Updated the FAQ and removed the link to that page that no longer exists. The list of uploads no longer exists, but you can search the pending uploads. Just go to the search page and change "Search in" from Downloads to Uploads

Hoogovens, the FAQ needs updating as that pending uploads page no longer exists. Instead you can use the search page to search through pending uploads, just change the "Search In:" dropdown box to read "Uploads" first.

Asagoth, with regard to the earlier reported 'access denied' errors Sleepy told me that they might have been due to the web server running out of disk space. He then said that he hoped that he had fixed the problem but just now I have received yet another 'access denied' error. So if Sleepy is right in his diagnosis then there is currently a severe lack of space on the server right now, which would make uploading manuals a problem.

After having uploaded those 4 manuals the error started...i can download and navigate with no problems...its just the upload that don't work... The upload reaches 100 % and them the page stuck for a minute and shows this: message : Internal Server Error

"The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request."...

Please contact the server administrator, -email- and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.

More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

Additionally, a 500 Internal Server Error error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request... strange...

Uploading a manual is working for me. Try it again perhaps?

I see 4 manuals that you uploaded on September 24. I posted Adventures of Batman and Robin because I remember seeing a request for that a while back.
