If you don't find what you are looking for here, a good place to hunt for manuals is eBay. Additionally, for games made fairly recently, manuals may be found on manufacturer web sites. Manufacturers still in business include Namco Arcade and Stern Pinball

Please note that while we are supported by nearly all manufacturers and coin-op companies, there are a few manuals that we are not able to provide online at this time. In particular, we currently do not offer 'Gottlieb' manuals here, though may offer support for earlier Gottlieb manuals in the future. See our Manual Copyrights & Contact Info page for information about this and for our contact information.
