DjVu is like PDF but open source - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DjVu

Use the plugin at this location (http://www.lizardtech.com/download/dl_d ... atform=win) to open the files.
Having sold 99.9% of my 1300+ collection of originals, I'm taking a bit of a back seat on the forum. I'll still do the front-of-house admin tasks as and when they're required but, for now, I'm enjoying my Xbox 360 time too much :)

Hello Mister DID,

Nice site you have there! :)
Although, I could not find the English version of the Stos manual, I did manage to install the DjVu and take a quick peek
at the french version! Excellent job!

Could you please point me to the English version, thanks very much!

did anyone find the english version ? I assume its a scan of the book ?

also does anyone remember "stosman" which was a text version of the manual ? I have one really poor stos manual which runs in stos, but extracting the information out of the database file is a bit tough going... well its just the format of it, loads of spaces not needed all over the place... I can fix it, but I am sure there is a text version and a pdf version of the manual out there somewhere anyway ?

STOS is listed as a game in GBST, although its obviously a language but it definately deserves a place!
viewforum.php?f=40

as for including it elsewhere, Im quite happy with that but it would be nice if Paul (Goldrunner) could have his say too, only trouble is he's not been around for a fair while.

Ah Nice. :)

Would the STOS online manual by Ratsoft be of any use? Here it is in a compressed file. Not sure of the files format but I used 7zip on the PC to uncompress it. Seems more like a handy memory promt thing rather than full manual.
EDIT: Had to ZIP up the file to post it. You have to unzip the file then uncompress "stos.man" to view the ST files.
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

Yeah, looks better than the version I found... I will include them all in the zip file..

When I get chance I will sort out a final version of stos with all the updates for it to work on the falcon with the extensions for falcon.... maybe called it "falcos" :D
