1.  Setup
1.1 Make sure there is a joystick icon in the Control Panel of your
    Windows 95 system. If not, check your computer hardware configuration
    and Windows 95 documentation.

1.2 Before the installation of the PC POWERPAD PRO device driver,
    make sure that the Windows 95 Joystick Properties window is closed.

1.3 If you choose Add/Remove Device function provided in the Control Panel
    to install the device driver for the PC POWERPAD PRO game 
    controller, you must insert the installation disk before clicking the
    INSTALL button in the Add/Remove Device dialog box.

2.  Calibration
2.1 Before you proceed with the calibration procedure, please select the
    device - PC POWERPAD PRO first.

2.2 During the calibration procedure, button R and button L of the 
    game controller will not be recognized by the calibration program.

3.  Testing
3.1 If you use the testing procedure provided in the Control Panel,
    you cannot test buttons R and L, but other buttons and the direction
    control knob will respond normally.

3.2 You can run the gamepad testing program - INTERACT PC Power Pad Pro
    - under START menu after successful installation to test all the
    functions of the game controller."

3.3 If you find any problem while playing games or in the Windows 95 
    Joystick Properties window, please double check with the testing program
    - INTERACT PC Power Pad Pro.

4. Uninstalling The Device
4.1 You can uninstall the PC POWERPAD PRO Game Controller Device Driver from the
    Windows 95 by either running the UNINSTALLER icon from the Start Menu or
    by selecting the Add/Remove Program icon in the Control Panel.


5.1  If you have no response from fire buttons C, D, L and R, check your
     I/O card to make sure it can support the use of game port 2.

5.2  If the error message " NO JOYSTICK " appears on your monitor,
     ensure that your game port is  enabled.  You may need to enable it;
     call the manufacturer of your game card or PC for  assistance.

5.3  If the joystick is working erratically during game play, check to see
     if you have more than one  game port ( i.e. one on a sound card or one
     on a I/O controller card, etc. ).  If they are both enabled, an  IRQ 
     conflict is probably the cause of your joystick problem.  One must be
     disabled; contact the  game card manufacturer for details.

     The game port may be built in a separate, dedicated game card, or it
     may be built into your   mother board, sound card, video card, multi
     I/O card, super IDE hard disk controller card or   some other
     expansion card.  To disable the existing game port, you should check
     with the Owner's manual.  If such information is not available in the
     Owner's manual, please contact the   distributor or service center of
     your computer.
