Can't find it on JJP's site. I see posts up to 120 days ago asking about it. Is there really no manual yet?

Can you pay extra for a printed one?

I don't t think JJP releases printed manuals for over a year after release.

I just want to view the online version. Seems like there isn't one?

Yes, no manual yet. I confirmed that. I’m sure it will come at some point. Hopefully sooner than later.

They don’t have the POTC manual to purchase online either, you have to email them and they prepare an invoice.

I just wanted a digital copy to see schematics and such. Crazy that it isn't available with the game.

Wow with the price of there games they should at least have an online manual that you can printout and put in a three-ring binder

All will be revealed in due time.

It’s printed on the reverse side of the playfield art.

It's super stupid.
In a bid to do things diff'rent than other companies they changed something that didn't need to be changed.
Their idiotic "well we don't wanna print the manual to the come has all the updates" was the dumbest thing I've ever heard, but whatever it was just a printed one and they sent you a disk with all the info so it didn't matter; But this makes no sense.

Personally, I'm fine without a printed manual. I printed my own for POTC which cost about 1/2 of the JJP ones but also doesn't include the special section at the end. After lugging the JJP manuals around a bit I am happier to go to the PDF and scroll, search, bookmarks, etc. But I can see how games of this price range should include it. I can't imagine what the cost is on the printing but it can't be more than $30-40 in bulk, probably less.
