Japanese guide book scans

Postby Wude-Tang Clan » Thu Jul 16, 2015 11:51 pm

Is there a complete scan of any guide books? I'm considering ordering one and scanning it myself if there isn't.

And does anyone have a clue as to how rare the Hornet capsule toy car from Daytona USA is?

If Shenmue 3 is possible, then anything is possible.

I have scans of the character profile pages from the 'Shenmue II Perfect Guidebook' (which were all translated for my database project), which you can download here;

I don't own the book myself but receieved these scans from the member Eek the Cat way back in 2003, unfortunately I don't think he's popped up here again since the S3 announcement :(

Thanks for that. I downloaded them many years ago; great stuff.

What books are out there; 2 Japanese guide books; are all the rest of them scanned; PAL / US? I'd like to scan them for the Dojo.

i for some reason the cloud store wont let me download it- i click the link but the download never starts.

if anyone has any luck downloading it, please re upload to the dojo or elsewhere because i would really like to have it.

Found it on emuparadise.com ( Shenmue Versus Books Official Perfect Guide Scan.pdf | 80mb)

Found these on Amazon.co.jp:
Shenmue 2 Complete Guide | シェンムー2コンプリートガイドシェンムー2コンプリートガイド
Shenmue 2 Premiere Guide | シェンムーII Premiere Guide
Shenmue 2 guide book | シェンムー2ガイドブック
Shenmue 2 fastest Strategy Guide ( Dengeki capture King ) | シェンムー2最速攻略ガイド (電撃攻略王)

Have to see if my friend in Japan will order these for me and ship them as he's done for rare stuff in the past (for a fee, of course.) If not, I'm going to have to use someone like shoppingmalljapan.

:?:
got the 'VERSUS' pdf document/guide of the first game right HERE at my mediashit account. (.7z. 70.7m, expanded 79.9m)
...
WORD OF WARNING!
as really cool as the item is, IT WILL CHUNK YOUR BROWSER IF USING SOME POS COMPUTER...EVEN HEWLETT PACKARD INTEL JUNK!
slow the computer to a crawl, so use a good handler/EDITOR to view this document, like 'adobe pdf view' or 'directory opus' for example. (D-O with relative binary plugin of course)
...
quite a good quality scan, should've supplied it with the gdi's ripped... :???: (coulda, woulda, shoulda!)
wasn't able to find the second scan, the link you supplied is fucked, for now...it seems?! (confirmed. symptoms exactly as described, when download tab is hit, it just spins on it, then shits out without any indication of an attempt.)
anyway, do as you will, have fun! :mrgreen:
Pinball illusions title intro - remix [Olof Gustafsson, Paokala]
:mad:
phpBB [video]

[edit]
nevermind.
the above looks to be the same item, can't be sure though.... :?:
one warning was absolutely fair, was over zealous on conviction on a response to a subject.
the other one for 'spam' (aka: it was me posting that qualified) which is bogus due to personality clash. why don't who this concerns pull the other guy for destroying my subject, accusing it of SPAM?
oh, i get it now, not one of your cliques, and i watched you stand by and and let him trash it, and you did NOTHING but was complicit in your silence, and totally one sided and agree with it by inactions. (you have the temerity to pull me for spam, and yet, you let your lackey cliquey friends shit on my subjects? double-standards, real fuckin professional dude.)
at least the other staffer explained where i was wrong, and backed it up clearly in writ. :roll:

The Versus book is fantastic, it captures the Shenmue game design very well. The Shenmue III guide book is now the extra stuff I'm waiting the most with Kenji's artbook, if possible translated !

I do own the 'Shenmue II Complete Guide', but it's the sort of book that it's a bit awkward to make scans from...I might have a go with some of the more interesting stuff though, I'll have a look through it again sometime.

Has anybody got this book? I'm thinking about purchasing it, but it is a little pricey.
