Mega Man Anniversary GC Instructions

So I randomly picked up a copy of Mega Man Anniversary Collection for my Gamecube the other day, I'm not a Mega Man person, but the WiiWare one has gotten me interested. It was used on the cheap. Only problem: The manual is in french. Now, I could probably figure out the controls (I kind of know french a bit...Education up to grade 9, go Canadian bilingualism), but I still want to read what they are, as well as the plot summaries, gameplay tips, and other bits.

So is there anywhere online that has scans of the manual? Not an FAQ, but actual scans?

Also, on an unrelated note, seeing as I'm a Mega Man noob, and I hear it's hard as shit, what's a good guide for tips and strategy, aside from just hitting up Game FAQs?

But mostly, I just want the manual.

    Here's the PS2 version:

    couldn't find the GC one.

    As for strategy: there isn't really one, other than weapon order. Keep dying until you get it right.

    I'm not sure of where you could do that. Technically, it's illegal to reproduce the manual anyway.

    The controls are super simple; one of the buttons shoots, one jumps. Down+jump-->slide. Hold down shoot to charge up your shot. There you go. There's no real plot summary for the non-Megaman X games.

    And for good guides and tips there's no real alternative to GameFAQs. GameFAQs is very thorough for such things.

    I second GameFAQS, it is an awesome site.

    When playing any MM game it helps to know who to destroy first. If you know the kill order, it makes the game slightly easier. BTW I hope you like platform jumping because every MM game is stuffed to gills with it, especially the older games. Not just any regular platform jumping, but the 'WTF I can barely make it' kind. It was the MM platform jumping that got me angry enough to do my first Nintendo controller dunk.

    Also as a side note: MM1 is hard as balls, MM2 on the other hand is well balanced between hard and fun; I would start with that one.

    Third'd. Your first thought after "I'm missing a manual" or "I'm stuck on <something>" while playing a game should be to check GameFAQs, because it's most likely there.
    Also as a side note: MM1 is hard as balls, MM2 on the other hand is well balanced between hard and fun; I would start with that one.

    Much agreed also. I would probably still have a hard time getting through MM1 today, whereas I beat MM2 (and had fun) when I was in about 3rd grade or so.

    Plus the music is awesome.

    At least one of the games uses another button for sliding instead of down+jump.

    Also, on the GC, the shoot and jump buttons are reversed from the original NES layout, forcing you to use B to jump, and A to shoot. I found that hard to get used to.

    I have the game, and I have to say, you're not missing much from the manual. Trial and error with the controls should be all you need.

    The most annoying thing is they made two games unlockable.
