I got Max-10 right before having to pack up the CoCo for lack of room. All I have is the program disk; so yes, I could really use a peek at a manual.
CoCo Max III wasn't copy protected. If you like, I can send you copies of that and GhanaBwana. And Dynacalc (forgot I had that one).

I have a bunch of Max-10 related stuff. The program disk, several
font disks, Borders and Boxes... lots of stuff including some manuals.
Does anyone need a copy of any of this?
I have my original VIP Terminal and VIP Writer disks but no docs.
A working MikeyTerm disk and printed docs.
My original Macro80C disks (yes, the disk version) backed up fine and
I still have the manuals.
My FoxyGraph tape disappeared but I still have the docs.
I can't back up COCO MAX III and the manual is missing. (Were these
I also can't back up ROGUE, DYNACALC, GHANABWANA, Rescue on Fractalus
and several other commercial disks. And some of those were still
sealed when I bought them.
My Zone Runner disk appears to be an empty OS9 disk. No game.
Does Pegasus and the Pantom Riders have problems with the CoCo3? I
couldn't get it to work.
The biggest loss in my coco collection wasn't the commercial programs
but some of my own personal stuff. Not one of my Graphicom picture
disks would back up. And the worst... I had several disks full of
assembly stuff I did in '84 - '85 that show the directory but no files
can be read. I don't even remember doing that much in assembler.
The good news is that I saved a bunch of my BASIC stuff. I'll see if
I can find something for the newsletter.
I still have to transfer from 3.5" coco disks to image files but let
me know if there's anything you need (scanned docs, disk images) and
let me know if you can get me a disk image of any of the stuff that
