Elite / Frontier Is this the real deal? Elite manual 1984.

http://www.elitehomepage.org/manual.htm

I stumbled across this link whilst looking for information about the original 1984 Cobra Mk III.

Is this link really the 1984 manual?

I'm only 22 see, and thus, the original game was before my time. I have read the entire webpage & I hope it's the manual. Was a good read. And, if it is, I learned a lot about the Cobra.

Many thanks.
 
Yeah.

"Energy Bomb Specification: Medusa Pandora Self Homing Energy Bomb (available at Tech Level 7 worlds or higher) is a tactical weapon capable of Megazon Destruct Force 13. Has heat radius of 900 km. Developed by Klaus-Kline laboratories for multi- role combat using "launch-and-leave" techniques."
 
Would not the 'real deal' be printed on that stuff we used to use for manuals, i.e. paper?
Well, you know what I'm trying to get at. Is the content correct, such and such. :)

Don't forget we are not too clear on how much of The Dark Wheel and the manual is canon now. T James' book is canon and deals with the thargoids.

You are? You seem much older online. So you are never ever going to step outside your home?
 
Starman seems to be excelling at necromancy recently. Check out that game design university thread where he's trying to have a conversation with posts that are ten years old!
