Note that these are NOT all from the same era.
||Arcadian Business Reply Envelope|
This was how most owners discovered the Arcadian newsletter. Until the Astrocade was
released, most Bally Professional Arcade owners didn't even know that the Arcadian
existed. Look how good you've got it; you can download every issue of the newsletter at
||Bally Home Library Computer Owner's Manual|
This is the original manual that came with the Bally Home Library Computer (the original name of the console
before it was called the Astrocade or even the Bally Arcade).
||AstroVision/Bally 90-Day Limited Warranty Card|

This is the Bally Professional Arcade warranty registration card. It seems to have been used during a transitional period, as it is addressed in care of "Astro Vision." It is to be mailed to Bally Manufacturing Corporation, Consumer Products Division, Care of Astro Vision, P.O. Box 133, Garner, Iowa 50438.
- Bally Limited Warranty Card - This B&W scan is only 1/4 of the card. It is the part that the owner fills out. This was the original version of the document that was archived. It is kept here for archival purposes.
||Bally Professional Arcade Owner's Manual (Astrovision Version)|
This is the Astrovision version of the owner's manual. This version is twenty pages and is only
B&W. There are major differences between this manual and the Bally version.
||Bally Professional Arcade Owner's Manual (Bally Version) - Fun and Brains!|
Twenty pages of full-color instuctions on how to use your Bally Arcade.
This alternative version isn't as
clean of a scan, but it has a different version number on the back of the booklet (though there are
no apparent differences).
||Bally Professional Arcade Owner's Manual (Bally Version)|
Sixteen pages of gray-scale instuctions on how to use your Bally Arcade.
||Computer Warm-Up Instruction|
Did you know that your Astrocade has 'sophisticated computer circuitry?' It's so complex
in fact, that the Astrocade needs to 'warm-up' before use. I do anything but
let my Astrocade warm-up!
||Sourcebook Business Reply Envelope|
The Sourcebook was the best way to find out everything that was available for the
Astrocade. Like the Arcadian, you had to 'be in the know' to get this catalog
before the Astrocade was released.
