Manual and Game Guide

Welcome to the Manual and Game Guide thread!

The original intent was to have one manual for the game. But as the complexity of the game grew, so did the scope of the manual. Ultimately, it became clear that a somewhat more basic manual would need to be delivered with the game. But, the full monster was certainly a formidable resource, and not one that we wished to hold back from the community. As a result, OOTPB will have both a Manual and a Game Guide.

The Manual
The Manual is designed to give users enough information to get started. It has information about most of the basic aspects of the game, but does not go into too much detail. The Manual comes in the installer package when you download the game, but a copy can be downloaded here

The Game Guide
The Game Guide is 350+ pages of detail about the game. It includes screen-by-screen descriptions of every screen in the game, as well as numerous sections that go into more detail on some of the trickier concepts in the game, such as the player rating model, transactions, and online leagues. The Game Guide is a "superset" of the Manual. That is, everything that is in the Manual is covered in the Game There is nothing in the manual that is not also covered in the Game Guide. The Game Guide is only available by download. A copy can be downloaded here:

The "pretty" version was Le Grande Orange's work. He took my clumsy Word/PDF version and made it beautiful. Amazing work. I believe his intent is to pretty-ize the Game Guide as well, but that will take some time. For now, we wanted to make sure it was available for you to enjoy, even in "ugly format."

M's Rule did the editing of the Game Guide, and Dan Theman did the editing required to cut the Game Guide down to the more manageable Manual. Couldn't have done it without them.

There is always room for improvement. Please do not hesitate to post in this thread if you have questions that aren't answered in the manual or game guide, if a description seems unclear or inaccurate, or if you have a question that isn't covered in the manual. We're always open to constructive criticism!
