Default MTec AT Megabody

I just picked up one of these and while I've found the German version of the manual, I am unable to find an English version/translation.

Unfortunately, my German is so bad I'd probably end up getting myself shot.

Without running the whole thing through Babel Fish, does anyone have an English copy of the manual they'd be willing to scan and email to me? Besides, I'm pretty sure their German isn't all that much better either!

Thanks,

Curtis

WOW!

The response has been completely and totally underwhelming!

No one has a copy of the owner's manual in English? Was it even written in English or just German?

I'm not sure they even did the manual in English but you could use the German pdf :

http://amiga.resource.cx/manual/AT500_Megabody.pdf

and then copy and paste into an online translator.

To test that concept I opened the pdf in eXPert PDF, saved as RTF and put it into Google translator - got some quite understandable text.

I was afraid that was what I was going to have to do.

PITA, but guess I'll have to give it a whirl.

If you're not sure to get the important details I can give you a hand (unless you require the whole manual). Since the board seems to be RDB compatible all you probably need is how to add RAM and set the jumpers, don't you?

PS: if you use a slightly more specific subject on your post you might get a better/quicker answer...

Zac, Probably the main thing I'll need is jumper settings, so when I get it in, I may take you up on the offer.

As far as the subject, you're probably right, should've added "manual translation"

Quick'n dirty translation of the jumper section:
MTec AT-500 Interface15
IV jumper settings
There are some jumpers on the board of the interface,
with the following purposes:
Kick 1.2/1.3 kickstart switching between versions:
KickStart 1.2 = Jumper inserted
KickStart 1.3 = Jumper not mounted
KickStart 2.0 = Jumper not mounted
MEM 1 (MEM), MEM 2 (DTK)
Memory card present / not present:
Memory Card missing = both jumpers inserted
Memory card present = both jumpers not mounted
LED: pins for signal lamp (LED)
