Don't flame me, I do own the game legally (I have receipts to prove it). I couldn't find the game anywhere locally so I bought it from http://www.direct2drive.com. Very fast DL, good service all round. No manual though!

I have read about it being on one of the install directories but it doens't appear to be in the downloaded version.

Can anyone help me, like to email me the manuals? It would be greatly appreciated!

Double check there isn't a PDF file in your main FB folder.

Yeah, I've looked in every directory to no avail.

To be honest, the manual isn't the best ever made. Several syntax errors and typos make for interesting experiences

I know they are great for reference, but what do you need to know? As a stopgap measure, just tell us what you need to know and we'll consult the manual http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

All I will need is your email addy, which you can send me PM, or I can use the one you registered with when joining our forums. Once the file is loaded, the service will send you a link when you can d/l the file from their servers. Is simple and effective. Let me know what you think.

Thanks for all your help guys, seriously. The email is the one I registered with on the forums Steve, I'll PM it to you anyhow. Thanks so much.

It's not so much anything specific I need help with, I don't know the keys, the way missions work, pretty much everything!

Thanks again guys!
