[ファミリーベーシックV3] FAMILY BASIC V3 Manual Translation Project

ファミリーベーシックV3 Page 1

Ok, I got the manual, but I can’t read the instructions, because it’s in japanese. There isn’t any manual scan on the net, either a translation. It’s a 141 pages long manual, so don’t except that I’ll upload it soon. It would be great to get an english manual in the end. Got it? Is there anybody else interested? Or has somebody else the manual and could help scanning it? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

  1. This looks pretty cool – I’d love to play around with this some day. I’ll be in Japan for most of June myself. Was this hard to find? I’ve seen lots of gameshops with nostalgic stuff before, but haven’t come across Family Basic before.

  2. i have the manual but it’s not the same version ( the family basic v2 ) and mine is 113 page long
    i’m going to make a scan

  3. I have been looking for an english translation of either V2 or V3 manuals for AGES! I have met with minimal luck. Any help would be much appreciated. If you know of any translated scans out there let me know by commenting my blog. Cheers

  4. i think i have the first version,doesnt say any verison number its 113 pages too, and came with a grafix card. will send em if ya ask. also came with another piece of paper that i dont know what it says.

  5. I don’t have a copy of the manual but if someone could send it to me I’d scan it and send it back, and make the scan available online. I also may be able to get some people to help with the translation, and surely when it is available electronically other people would help- could even OCR it and use Google translate for a rough translation.

    I have an Chinese kart which seems to have 2 hacked versions of F-BASIC (I think F-BASIC 1 or 2 and F-BASIC 3, it calls them F-BASIC and G-BASIC). It also has the music program, translated to English (screenshots I’ve seen are Japanese).

    The machine it came with is a 小霸王 (SUBOR) SB486-D and looks like this: http://goo.gl/8VoBa – it’s an awesome Chinese NES clone that looks like it is built into an IBM PC-keyboard. They were very popular in China in the ’90s and are really worth getting hold of. That same kart also has a simple text editor and a few utilities like a calculator and typing tutor, and the SB-486B has a 25 pin D-SUB connector on the back, that looks like it might be for connecting to a printer, the text editor has a ‘print’ option.
