1. WHAT'S NEW IN THIS RELEASE

This is the third release of Logitech Entertainment Software (LES). The 
first release (1.0) supported the WingMan Warrior digital Gaming Device using 
the serial port.

The second release (2.1) supports two new Logitech digital gaming devices,
the WingMan Extreme Digital joystick and the ThunderPad Digital gamepad.
These devices use a standard gameport connector found on a sound card or
game card. The software includes an innovative Windows 95 Control Center
that allows you to customize the gaming device's controls for each game.

This release (2.2) supports Logitech CyberMan 2, a 6 degree of freedom
device that uses a standard gameport connector.  It complies with
DirectInput under Windows 95, in which all device control data is reported.
If running a DOS game in DOS box under Windows 95, 4 axes and 4 buttons are
reported to the DOS game: X, Y, Throttle and Rudder and 4 buttons.

There are certain DOS games that have enhanced support through
LAUNCHER.EXE.


2. WINDOWS 95

Note:
This release of Logitech Entertainment Software is for use with Windows 95 
only.


2.1 Quick Installation

The Logitech CyberMan 2 device plugs into a standard gameport.
Most computers have a gameport (usually on the sound card),
but you may install a gameport if your computer does not have one.

Place the Logitech Entertainment Software CD in your CD-ROM drive. The 
Setup window appears in a few seconds (if Autoplay is enabled on your 
system.)

Click the Setup button, then follow the directions that appear on the setup 
screens.

If the Autoplay feature of Windows 95 is not enabled, then simply go to the 
Start menu, choose Run..., click Browse... to select the CD-ROM drive, 
double-click the SETUP.EXE program on the LES 2.2 CD, then click the OK 
button to start the LES 2.2 SETUP program.

After install is finished, Windows 95 will restart.


2.2 Uninstall

LES 2.2 can be removed from Windows 95 by clicking the Add/Remove Programs 
icon in the Windows 95 Control Panel. Select Logitech Entertainment 
Software and press the Remove button. Then follow the onscreen instructions 
for completing the uninstall.

Or, you may activate the uninstall program from the Logitech Entertainment 
program group in the Windows 95 Start menu.

After uninstall is finished, Windows 95 will restart.


3. DOS AND WINDOWS 3.X

3.1 If Windows 95 is Not Present

Logitech CyberMan 2 gaming device is designed to work with the Windows 95 
operating system. It does not work as an analog gaming device in DOS only
environment.

If the install program is run under Windows 3.1, it will only copy the Help 
file for Logitech Entertainment Software plus a link to the Logitech Live 
web site. No drivers are installed.

If only DOS is present (Windows is not in the path), no files are copied 
and a user message is displayed.



4. INSTALL AND UNINSTALL NOTES
       
4.1 Install Notes

The installer has been tested with a variety of system configurations to 
ensure a success the first time. However, typical Windows 95 systems 
contain a wide range of software and hardware products and not all 
combinations could be tested. Following are some notes to keep in mind:

1. Be sure to have your Logitech digital gaming device plugged in at the 
   time of installation. The device will be calibrated during the install 
   process.
2. Be careful not to plug your Logitech digital gaming device into a 
   network port. The connector is similar (15-pin) to a gameport connector.
3. After the installer has finished, Windows 95 will give you the option to
   restart. So any applications that have documents open should be exited 
   before beginning the LES installation. This is especially true of game 
   programs or DOS games running under Windows 95.
4. If you do not restart Windows, the auto game detection feature will not
   work until you start the LES Control Center or restart the system.
5. If during installation, the installer displays error message stating that
   the device is not connected follow these steps
   1. Check if CyberMan 2 is connected properly. If not, connect it properly.
   2. Choose retry. If the message persists, press cancel. The installation will
      go to completion.
   3. Reboot the machine and open up Windows Joystick Control Panel or
	Game Controllers Control Panel.
   4. Choose CyberMan2 as the Gaming Device. Press Ok. You are ready to go.

(see the HARDWARE NOTES and TROUBLESHOOTING sections for more information)

4.1.1 Re-installing LES 2.2

LES 2.2 may be reinstalled over an existing 2.2 installation. The install 
program detects a previous installation and gives the user the option to 
retain any existing game settings. Re-installing may be done without first 
uninstalling LES 2.2. This may be necessary if your Logitech digital gaming 
device stops functioning after installing other hardware or software that 
is not compatible.

4.1.2 Using LES 2.2 with WingMan Warrior

WingMan Warrior is a recently released Logitech digital gaming device using 
software version 1.0. The current LES 2.2 software installs over the LES 
1.0 software and provides the same functionality for Warrior in Windows 95 
games and Windows 95 DOS programs. Note: LES 2.2 does not provide 
programming capability for Warrior in its Control Center. Warrior 
uses a DOS-based control panel for button programming.

The LES 2.2 uninstall program will not remove the three Warrior device
entries in the Windows Joystick control panel; the DOS files are also not
removed. To use Warrior again after uninstalling LES 2.2, please re-install 
the LES 1.0 software.

4.1.3 Using LES 2.2 with WingMan Extreme Digital

LES 2.2 supports WingMan Extreme Digital and ThunderPad Digital.  There
is no need to reinstall LES 2.1 to have the WingMan Extreme Digital
or ThunderPad support.  If for any reason you need to reinstall LES 2.1,
please uninstall LES 2.2 first.


4.2 Uninstall Notes

The uninstall program is designed to remove the main LES 2.2 application 
files but it will leave Logitech gaming devices drivers and registry entries
installed for compatibility with new versions of Windows 95. Following
are some notes to keep in mind:

1. Installed driver files are only active when the device they support is 
   selected in the Joystick or Game Controllers control panel. Otherwise,
   they do not use any memory.
2. Logitech gaming devices will not be removed from the Joystick or
   Game Controllers control panel after uninstall.  It is possible to
   activate the Logitech Gaming Devices driver in the Control Panel after
   uninstall.
3. After uninstall is finished, you will have the option to either reboot
   or return to Windows.  However, we still advise that you save your work
   prior to running uninstall.


4.2.1 Driver Files

The LES 2.2 driver files for Logitech gaming devices will remain in the 
\WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory after uninstall. New versions of Windows 95 come 
with support for Logitech gaming devices. Future versions of LES will 
update these drivers; thus, the uninstaller should leave the most recent 
drivers installed. These files remain:

   LCYBRMN2.VXD
   LJOY.VXD
   LJOYV.VXD
   LJOYPNP.VXD

4.2.2 Registry Entries

All Logitech gaming device entries in the Microsoft Joystick or 
Game Controllers control panel will remain after the LES 2.2 software is
uninstalled. All registry entries for the LES Control Center will be removed,
except for those settings that are created by you.

The following entries will remain in the Microsoft Joystick control panel:

   DESCRIPTION                                     INSTALLED WITH

   Logitech WingMan
   Logitech WingMan Light
   Logitech WingMan Extreme
   Logitech ThunderPad

   Logitech WingMan Warrior                        [LES 1.0]
   Logitech WingMan Warrior (Game Port Hat)        [LES 1.0]
   Logitech WingMan Warrior (Game Port Throttle)   [LES 1.0]

   Logitech WingMan Extreme Digital                [LES 2.1]
   Logitech ThunderPad Digital                     [LES 2.1]

   Logitech CyberMan 2                             [LES 2.2]

Note for Advanced Users:
Following uninstall, there may be more than one entry for Logitech 
Gaming Devices remaining in the Device Manager part of the System control
panel applet. This may be a quirk of Windows 95; it should not cause any 
problems.

4.2.3 Windows OSR-2

LES 2.2 is compatible with OEM Service Releases of Windows 95 beginning 
with OSR-2. These releases include support for four Logitech analog gaming 
devices: WingMan, WingMan Light, WingMan Extreme, and ThunderPad. When LES 
2.2 is installed, new drivers for these devices are added to the system. 
When LES 2.2 is uninstalled, the new drivers remain to support these 
devices.

Under OSR-2, the Device Manager always displays the Driver page in the device
property sheet. You may notice that the Driver page says that no driver is
loaded for the CyberMan 2 device. Be assured, the driver is loaded, and is 
working properly.


5. HARDWARE NOTES

5.1 Game and Sound Cards

Logitech Digital gaming devices have been tested with a wide variety of 
game and sound cards. In addition, the devices will operate in most cases 
with multi-function cards such as IDE disk controllers or multimedia cards. 
In rare cases, when using the old Windows Sound System card or using some 
Opti chip sets, turning off the sound in the game's control panel may allow 
the game and the Logitech gaming device to function properly.

5.1.1 CH Products Gamecard 3

This is a popular variable-speed game card that works well with Logitech 
Digital gaming devices. Logitech's digital design does not require any 
special software or jumper settings for this card to achieve the best 
performance. Since the power-on card settings are adequate, you should 
remove any existing AUTOEXEC.BAT settings for this card. See your CH 
documentation for details.

5.1.2 Kraft Auto-Set Pro

This is an older variable-speed game card that was not designed for modern 
high-speed machines. Some games may not function properly when using this 
card.

5.1.3 Non-standard gameports

Logitech Digital gaming devices will operate properly with most gameports 
on the market. Some gameports in older computers have an incomplete 
implementation of the gameport and thus may not provide full functionality. 
In this case, a Y-cable will not be supported; only one Logitech Digital 
gaming device can be used on this gameport.

5.1.4 IBM Mwave Sound Chip (Aptiva)

Some systems using the Mwave sound chip may need a small change to work 
properly with Logitech Digital gaming devices. This chip is usually found 
on the older IBM Aptiva PC's. To make this change, do the following:
1. Open the Windows Control Panel
2. Open the System applet
3. Click the Device Manager tab
4. Double-click the `Sound, video and game controllers' section
5. Double-click the Mwave gameport Joystick entry
6. Click the Resources tab
7. Uncheck the box labeled `Use Automatic settings'.
8. Then click the OK buttons to confirm the changes and restart Windows.
9. You may now install LES 2.2.

If you have already installed LES 2.2, you do not need to uninstall LES 
before making this change.

5.1.5 Diamond Edge 3D

This multimedia card is designed to be best used with console-type, Sega 
gamepads. CyberMan 2 will not work with this card. You may install a standard 
game card or other multi-function card for use with the Logitech digital 
devices.

5.1.6 Suncomm Gameport 2000

CyberMan 2 may not work properly with this game port card. Please use a
different game port card instead. 

5.1.7 Diamond Monster Sound Card

CyberMan 2 may not work properly with this game port card. Please use a
different game port card instead. 

5.1.8 Lightening 4 gameport

Lightening 4 gameport has 4 gameports. The first gameport is standard
analog gameport. The rest 3 are digital gameports. Logitech digital devices
will work on the first gameport only.


5.2 Y-Cables

Only CyberMan 2 can be used with another CyberMan 2 on a Y-cable. No other
digital or analog devices will be supported along with CyberMan 2 on a Y-cable.
Should you have any problems in using CyberMan 2 on a Y-cable with another
device connected, Unselect the driver for that device and disconnect the
device.

There are some Y-cable adapters that are not fully compatible with Logitech 
Digital gaming devices. In some cases, a gaming device may work on the `A' side 
of the adapter but not on the `B' side. In other cases, it may only allow 
the devices to work in analog mode, thus limiting the functionality.

A Y-cable adapter that works well is the Y-cable from Radio Shack. It is 
labeled `Y-Adapter' and is catalog number 26-380.

There are some models of the CH Products Y-cable that work, and some that 
do not. They have a different pin wiring. Unfortunately, they are not 
labeled or packaged differently.

A Y-cable that does not work with a sound card should work properly when 
connected to a real game card. This is because some Y-cables use pin 12 of 
the 15-pin gameport for ground (wiring it to pin 4 of the `B' connector). 
However, in a sound card, pin 12 is used for a MIDI signal. The game card, 
on the other hand, provides ground on pin 12. The Radio Shack Y-cable works 
with either a sound card or a game card.

If you attempt to calibrate 2 Logitech Digital gaming devices in Windows 95 
and are not able to operate the throttle indicator, then this usually 
indicates a problem with the Y-cable.


5.3 Rudder Pedal Support

Since CyberMan 2 is a full 3D gaming device, it intrinsically supports
the rudder axis. Rudder pedals should not be used with CyberMan 2.


5.4 Analog Gaming Devices

Logitech Digital gaming devices should not be used together with older 
analog gaming devices. If a Y-cable is used to connect a Logitech Digital
device and analog device, the digital device may not operate properly.


6. GAME-SPECIFIC NOTES

6.1 Introduction

Logitech is proud to introduce its Digital gaming devices to the 
entertainment market. The 32-bit software to support these devices, LES 
2.2, is one of the most advanced of its class. Much effort has been made to 
ensure compatibility with the popular games on the market as well as with 
future games. However, some older or non-standard DOS games may require 
special attention in order to operate properly.


6.2 Hints for Best DOS Game Performance

Most DOS games run well in Windows 95 DOS boxes. There are some memory-
intensive games that may operate slowly or erratically in a DOS box when 
there is limited RAM in the system. This is not related to the LES 
software. Adding more memory to the system may greatly improve game and 
other application performance.

Logitech digital gaming devices operate much faster than traditional analog 
gaming devices. In general, the game settings in the LES Control Center provide 
the most efficient operation for DOS games in a DOS box. For some games, 
choosing an alternate mode of LES improves the stability of the game. This 
mode is called `Alternate emulation' and may be selected in the LES Control 
Center. Choose the Game Setup tab, click Change Game, click the Advanced 
button, and select the Alternate emulation option in the dialog box that 
appears. As an example, Descent and Descent II benefit from this mode of 
operation. For your convenience, there is a Descent game setting already 
created with this mode preselected. Other DOS games that benefit from this 
emulation mode are:
   Batman Forever             Mortal Combat 3
   Battle Arena Toshinden     NBA Live '96
   Battlecruiser 3000AD       Primal Rage
   F22 Lightning II           Wing Commander III and IV
   Flight Simulator 5.1       Witchhaven I and II
   
In general, DOS gamepad-type sports or fighting games should use this 
emulation mode.


6.3 Specific Game Issues

Some DOS games, such as Heretic, Hexen, and Doom, require the user to 
perform a calibration at the start of every game; they use gaming device
Button 1 (the trigger) to complete each step. With these games, do not re-
configure Button 1 in the LES Control Center to another function 
unless you have configured some other button as Button 1.

Brutal
This DOS game has its directions of movement reversed. This problem 
affects any gaming device used with this game. Refer to the game 
publisher for a possible solution or newer version.

Descent and Descent II
This DOS game works fine with CyberMan 2 when the Descent game setting is 
selected in the LES Control Center. If your ship drifts slightly in the game, 
be sure that you have selected Descent and that the `Alternate emulation' 
option is still selected in the Advanced Options dialog box.

Descent I and Descent II may also be used with its `-joypolled' command 
line option in DOS as noted in the Descent documentation. You may notice some
slow down if the `-joypolled' option is used.

Some systems will experience problems with Descent I and the Alt-F2 save
game command. If pressing this key causes Descent I to crash, update your
CONFIG.SYS file and increase the FILES= line to 20 or more.

Descent II
This game may be unstable on some high-end systems with certain sound 
controllers. This problem affects any gaming device, including analog 
gaming devices. A possible workaround may be to turn off the sound in this 
game.

Descent II for Windows 95
In order to setup all 6 axes to work in Descent II for Windows 95, there
is a player file CYBERMN2.PLR that is installed into the default
C:\LOGITECH\ENTRTAIN directory. The Logitech Setup program will
automatically look for installed version of Descent II for Windows 95,
and if found, will copy the CYBERMN2.PLR player file to the game
directory. If you install Descent II for Windows 95 after installing
LES 2.2, simply copy this player file from the default C:\LOGITECH\ENTRTAIN
directory into the ID1 subdirectory of Descent II for Windows 95 directory,
run the game, and select the CYBERMN2 player. The 6 axes will be properly
configured. Note that if you choose the player other than CYBERMN2, then you
may have problems in configuring the 6 axis in the game.

Duke Nukem 3D
Duke Nukem 3D is a popular DOS first-person fighting game that works 
well with Logitech CyberMan 2 in its standard configuration. For best
results, select Duke Nukem 3-D in the Game list and press the
'Launch Game...' button in the LES Control Center. Duke will be launched
using a special program that will manage the control of Duke. Prior to
launching Duke, set the gaming device setting to Keyboard and External 
(with the External program setup as 'LAUNCHER.EXE') using Duke's 
SETUP.EXE.

If you have selected 'Unprogrammed Device' in the LES Control Center 
and Duke is not operating properly, make sure that the Controller Type 
in Duke's SETUP program is set to: Keyboard and Joystick.

Earthworm Jim
This DOS game does not see all movements of Logitech digital gaming devices
properly. However, as the CyberMan 2 can be made to send keyboard commands,
Inside the game select 'Keyboard' as the control device after assigning
keyboard commands to the Cyberman 2 in the LES Control Center.

NASCAR RACING 2
This DOS game may not detect the CyberMan 2 device properly.  We suggest
using the standard keyboard support instead.

Dos Quake and WinQuake
In order to setup all 6 axes and the 8 buttons to work in Quake for DOS and
WinQuake(Quake for Windows 95), there are two configuration files
CM2DOS.CFG         (for DOS quake)
CM2WIN.CFG         (for WinQuake)
that the Setup will copy into the default C:\LOGITECH\ENTRTAIN directory.
The Logitech Setup program will automatically look for installed version of
DOS quake and WinQuake, and if found, will copy the two cfg files to the
game directory. It will also create autoexec.cfg file if it does not already
exist and append following line to it.
     For DOS Quake add
        EXEC CM2DOS.CFG
     For Win Qauke add
         EXEC CM2WIN.CFG
If you install Quake or WinQuake for Windows 95 after installing
LES 2.2, simply copy these files from the default C:\LOGITECH\ENTRTAIN
directory into the game executable directory, and append the above
lines to the autoexec.cfg file, creating it, if not already present.

Tomb Raider
This DOS game may have some problems with Logitech digital gaming 
devices when the LES software is set up normally (using digital driver). 
In our experience, there will be some 'phantom' movement in the first 
few minutes of play of the game that should go away if you select the 
User Settings in the game a couple of times. The game apparently was 
intended primarily for keyboard use. Refer to the game's README file for 
more information or check the game publisher for a patch or newer 
version. However, if you assign the game's keyboard commands to the
CyberMan 2, it will work fine with the game, so long as the game is
set up to it's default settings for control.

6.4 DOS Games in Windows 95

In general, Windows 95 does a good job of providing support for DOS games. 
However, due to a variety of reasons some DOS games are best played in real 
DOS mode. Logitech digital gaming devices will operate in analog mode, with 
limited programming capability. For more information, refer to the `Using 
Gaming Devices Modes' section in the LES Online Help. The Restart in MS-DOS 
option is found in the Start Menu, in the Shut Down... dialog box.

Listed are a few games that should be played in real DOS mode:
   Advanced Tactical Fighters Top Gun
   Commanche 2.0        US Marine Fighters
   Falcon Gold          Virtual Karts
   FIFA '96             Madden NFL 97
   Inferno


7. TROUBLESHOOTING

This section describes gives solutions to specific problems you may have. 
For additional information, refer to section 6, GAME-SPECIFIC NOTES. Also, 
you may refer to the Troubleshooting section of the LES Online Help.


7.1 3rd-party Uninstall Programs

In general, LES 2.2 works well with 3rd-party uninstall programs such as 
CleanSweep, and Remove-It. Of course, LES 2.2 has its own uninstaller which 
we recommend for normal use. If during LES 2.2 installation, there is any 
conflict with an uninstall monitor program, then turn off the uninstall 
monitor and re-install LES 2.2.


7.2 Installing New PNP Sound Cards

If you install a Plug and Play sound card or game card AFTER first  
installing a Logitech Digital gaming device, then your device may no longer 
be detected. In most cases, restarting Windows 95 will allow the Logitech 
digital device to be found. This is a quirk of the Plug and Play system.

Also, check that the Logitech digital device is still selected in the 
Joystick or Game Controllers control panel.

If restarting Windows 95 does not help, you may have to reinstall Logitech 
LES 2.2 software. To retain your current game settings, do not uninstall 
LES; instead, install LES again but uncheck the box during install that 
says `Overwrite current game settings'.

See also item 5.1.3, `Non-standard gameports'.


7.3 When a Game Crashes

Most DOS games usually run well in a Windows 95 DOS box. However, 
occasionally a game will crash and require an exit back to Windows. If a 
the game is started again without restarting Windows, it may fail or the 
gaming device may not function properly. The safest solution is to restart 
Windows 95 following a game crash. This may apply to some Windows 95 games 
as well.


7.4 Only 1 Gaming Device on the Y-cable Works

If two Logitech Digital devices are connected with a Y-cable but one of 
them does not function, you may have one of these problems:
1. The Y-cable has improper wiring that prevents the `B' device from 
   working. See section 5.2, Y-Cables, for more information.
2. The gameport is a `half-circuit' implementation. These gameports do 
   not support Y-cables. See section 5.1.3, Non-standard gameports.
3. The Y-cable may not be plugged in correctly. Some Y-cable connectors 
   can easily slip off the gameport connector.


7.5 Digital Device Stays in Analog Mode After Using Analog Gaming Devices

If you started Windows 95 using an analog gaming device and then later
plugged in a CyberMan 2, your digital device will not work, and the 
special functions of the LES software will be inoperative.

Go to the Windows Joystick or Game Controllers control panel and reselect
Logitech CyberMan 2. In rare cases in Joystick control panel, you may need
to first select `None', click the Apply button, then select the proper
Logitech device.


7.6 Only Gaming Device 1 Works in DOS Games

DOS games generally only support one gaming device at a time.
Gaming Device #1 is the device that will be available in DOS games.
The gaming device number is selected in the Windows Joystick or
Game Controllers control panel.


7.7 The Game Runs Slower Than Normal on Some Systems

With some sound cards (or built-in sound systems), a game will appear to 
run slower than normal. For example, Descent with an old Windows Sound 
System or Opti chipset may cause this condition. This may be corrected by 
turning off the sound in the game's control panel.

If Duke Nukem 3D appears to be running slower than normal, you may need to 
choose a different option in Duke's control panel and a corresponding 
option in the LES Control Center. See section 6.3, Specific Game Issues: 
Duke Nukem 3D, for more information.


7.8 The Cursor Slowed Down After Changing Gaming Devices

If more than one Logitech Digital gaming device is installed, the LES 
digital driver is selected, and then the devices are unplugged or switched 
while a game or the LES Control Center is open, the mouse cursor may slow 
down for several seconds. During this time, the digital driver is searching 
for the devices. A solution is to first deselect the devices in the 
standard Joystick control panel by setting the devices to `None'. See the 
following note if you are using a Matrox display adapter.


7.9 Odd Behavior with Matrox Display Driver

In general, it is wise to use the most recent and stable drivers for your 
video display adapter. With some Matrox Millennium display drivers, a 
problem may occur when using the Windows 95 Joystick control panel. If you 
change the selected gaming device to `None' in the Windows Joystick
control panel, then you open a DOS box or activate an open DOS session, the 
display monitor may become dark and appear to be suspended. You should 
restart your system by pressing the Control-Alt-Delete keys twice in 
succession. Also, if there is a DOS game playing and then you Alt-Tab back 
into Windows, there is a possibility of a system error occurring.


7.10 Restart Windows 95 to Solve Problems

This is a useful solution for many Windows 95 problems. Windows is not a 
perfect system, and game software is not as stable and well-tested as some 
business software. Often, simply restarting Windows will `clean up' the 
system and correct an `unsolvable' problem.

Note: if you think it is necessary to `reset' the Logitech digital gaming 
device, please understand that restarting Windows 95 or pressing the system 
Reset switch will not reset any device attached to the gameport; this is a 
design limitation of the PC. To ensure a complete reset, either unplug and 
replug the device, or power cycle the system (shut down, turn off, then 
turn on).

8.1 Backup Game Settings

If you wish to restore your game settings to their original state, you may 
use the Import function in the LES Control Center. The GAMES.LES file on 
the installation diskette contains the original settings. See the LES
Online Help for instructions on importing game settings.


8.2 Using CyberMan2 as a mouse.

You can program CyberMan 2 to act as mouse. However if you wish to use both
CyberMan 2 as a mouse and the regular mouse, follow these guidelines
1. Program CyberMan2 to generate Mouse axis. Do not program CyberMan2 to
   generate mouse buttons. You can use CyberMan2 to generate mouse X and Y
   and the mouse to generate the mouse buttons.
2. If you program CyberMan2 to generate mouse buttons, then you should not use
   the standard mouse and the CyberMan 2 mouse buttons simultaneously. Doing
   so will make the mouse buttons to act erratically.
