Oh? When was this agreed?

Surely it makes more sense to put them in goodies if possible, since then people may actually see them, and they're not sort of "hidden"? Plus people who don't care aren't then installing four different versions if they're only going to play one.

I also got this other scan of Jazz 1's manual from somewhere. Can't remember where. May have been on the GOG forums at some point too.

These sound very good!
