    I'm going to make another effort to complete the manual/schematic and ideally score/instruction cards for united games.

    here's what's currently missing from the bingo.cdyn.com site. I'm not sure if manuals exist for the earliest machines.

    manuals
    ---------
    345
    abc
    bolero
    cabana
    circus
    leader
    nevada
    playtime
    rodeo (not likely to find)
    serenade (not likely to find)
    show boat
    stars
    tropics
    zingo

    schematics
    ------------
    345
    bolero
    monaco
    pixies
    playtime
    rodeo (not likely to find)
    serenade (not likely to find)
    zingo

    for the score/inscruction cards, high res pictures are enough. The goal is to allow making reproductions.

    if anyone has any of the above and is willing to loan it to me to scan, let me know. I'll also be looking to purchase them if necessary, so if you know of a source besides people on ebay that have them, also yell. I haven't asked the major parts suppliers yet what they have, but I will.

    thanks,
    phil

    Phil, to clarify - do you need the manual for both versions of Rodeo and the schematic for the three card version of Rodeo only?

    You and your site are such an asset to the community - thank you for everything you do!

    clarify? me?

    we don't have any paperwork on any version of rodeo, so would need the manuals/schems and score/instruction cards (beyond what is visible in the current playfield pictures).

    Should have most of what you are looking for. Just don't know how to scan them. Maybe staples could help.

    Butch if there's a Fedex Office location near you, they can help with scanning and have a large format scanner for schematics.

    Photos of score/instruction cards are extremely helpful as they can be reproduced with a good photo.

    Phil, I am happy to help with the reproduction effort as I will need them for my game, too.

    Gonna go down and look see what I have now. And Nick I didn't forget about ABC for you. Just have to get more lighting

    butch...I sent you an email a couple days ago. The best thing is to fill up a priority mail medium flat rate box and send the stuff to me. I can scan it in color and at the 300dpi resolution needed to make post-processing to get rid of the background/fold lines/dirt possible.

    I'll scan and mail the stuff back, plus pay for your postage

    while the material can technically be sent media mail for a few dollars less, priority mail is faster, safer, and automatically tracked.

    while some kinkos or other copy shops can scan large format, the costs used to be prohibitive (like >$20 for a single schematic).

    Hi Phil. I have manuals for Nevada and Playtime. Schematics for Monaco, Pixies and Playtime. I thought I had sent these to you already.
    If Butch does not have these, let me know and I will get them out to you.

    hi dennis,

    I just posted the pixies schem. The source had some damage, so I guessed on what it should be based on schems from similar games. The main issue is around G7-H7 in the schem...in particular, is wire 71-7 right, and the area around it including the way the dots/arrows/connections are drawn on the scan disc block.

    I have the monaco schem and had stitched the scanned chunks together, but didn't finish the cleanup process. It looks ok, so that one can get taken off the list too. I'll do the cleanup and post it over the next couple days. I put caravan on the list since my source wasn't very good.

    not sure what happened to playtime - I don't have the manual or schem for that.

    I can't edit the original post any more, so here's the new list. I also added a couple bally schems that are currently poor quality:

    manuals
    ---------
    345
    abc
    bolero
    cabana
    circus
    leader
    nevada
    playtime
    rodeo (not likely to find)
    serenade (not likely to find)
    show boat
    stars
    tropics
    zingo

    schematics
    ------------
    345
    bolero
    caravan (good quality - one already on site is kinda ratty)
    playtime
    rodeo (not likely to find)
    serenade (not likely to find)
    zingo

    bally schematics need good quality source
    ----------------------------------------------
    blue chip
    safari

    I'll email you if I need to borrow the things again ... sorry about that.

    Phil,

    I have schematics for Stars, Nevada and Caravan have nothing on Circus, Showboat, or Tropics. I looked in all machines I may have them in one of our shops. I will look into this more again tomorrow. Sorry

    Butch
