    Anyone know of a place that provides various video game strategy guides scans (.pdf's) for direct download or perhaps keeps a collection of torrents handy (free of charge)? I know I can find a select few (not a lot) via searching on torrent sites, but I was wondering if there was a site that specialized in assembling numerous guides in one place. Thanks in advance!

    Isn't this illegal to ask? I mean, aren't they copyrighted material?

    i would have thought if someone had done one in a text file that they had made by actually going through the game it wouldn't be, no. but if [m]artin is on about actual scans of walkthroughs from a published manual then yes it would be in breech of copyright laws and then (possibly) against forum rules to provide a link yes.

    why does it need to be a .pdf file?

    Scans are either PDFs or individual images, and browsing through and trying to read separate images can be a pain.

    well i kind of meant why aren't the .txt file walkthroughs good enough LOL? [​IMG]
    yes i really know the answer because the scanned versions have pretty pictures and all the hidden stuff most people can't find. [​IMG]

    My site does work on some guides, but mostly mags.
