1. WHAT'S NEW IN THIS RELEASE
This is the second release of Logitech Entertainment Software (LES). The 
first release (1.0) supported the WingMan Warrior digital joystick using 
the serial port.

This 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 panel that 
allows customizing your gaming device buttons for each game.


2. WINDOWS 95

Note:
This release of Logitech Entertainment Software is for use with Windows 95 
only. If SETUP is run under Windows 3.1, only the Help file and web site 
link file will be installed; this is intended for learning more about the 
product. Logitech digital gaming devices will function only in analog mode 
under Windows 3.1.

2.1 Quick Installation

Both the WingMan Extreme Digital and ThunderPad Digital plug 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. In the Joystick Configuration panel, be sure to select the proper 
device for which you are installing software. This will enable you to 
calibrate the device during installation so that you are ready to play 
after Windows restarts.

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 2.1 CD, then click the OK 
button to start the LES 2.1 SETUP program.

After install is finished, Windows 95 will restart.

2.2 Uninstall

LES 2.1 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 Digital gaming devices are designed to work with the Windows 95 
operating system. The WingMan Extreme Digital and ThunderPad Digital will 
also operate with limited functionality in DOS and Windows 3.1 by emulating 
an analog device.

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 install is finished, Windows 95 will 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.

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

4.1.1 Re-installing LES 2.1

LES 2.1 may be reinstalled over an existing 2.1 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 2.1. 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 2.1 with WingMan Warrior

WingMan Warrior is a recently released Logitech digital gaming device using 
software version 1.0. The current LES 2.1 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 2.1 does not provide 
programming capability for Warrior in its Windows 95 control panel. Warrior 
uses a DOS-based control panel for button programming.

When uninstalling LES 2.1, it will also remove the three Warrior device 
entries in the Windows 95 Joystick control panel; the DOS files are not 
removed. To use Warrior again after uninstalling LES 2.1, please re-install 
LES 1.0 software.


4.2 Uninstall Notes

The uninstall program is designed to remove the main LES 2.1 application 
files but it will leave some driver files 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 it supports is 
selected in the Joystick control panel. Otherwise, they do not use any 
memory.
2. Some Logitech gaming devices will be removed from the Joystick control 
panel after uninstall; some devices will remain. See below for more 
details.
3. After uninstall is finished, Windows 95 will 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.


4.2.1 Driver Files

The LES 2.1 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:

	LJOY.VXD
	LJOYV.VXD
	LJOYPNP.VXD

4.2.2 Registry Entries

Some Logitech gaming device entries will be removed from the Windows 95 
Joystick control panel after uninstall; some entries will remain. 

The following entries will be removed:
	Logitech WingMan Extreme Digital
	Logitech ThunderPad Digital
	Logitech WingMan Warrior				[LES 1.0]
	Logitech WingMan Warrior (Game Port Hat)		[LES 1.0]
	Logitech WingMan Warrior (Game Port Throttle)	[LES 1.0]

The following entries will remain. These are non-digital devices:
	Logitech WingMan
	Logitech WingMan Light
	Logitech WingMan Extreme
	Logitech ThunderPad

Advanced Note:
Following uninstall, there may be more than one entry for Logitech 
Joysticks 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 2.1 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 
2.1 is installed, new drivers for these devices are added to the system. 
When LES 2.1 is uninstalled, the new drivers remain to support these 
devices.


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.

In addition, the gameport address should be set to 201 (hex), the standard
value for joystick ports. Some game or sound cards may be set to non-
standard addresses, either by jumper or by the Plug and Play system. See
item 5.1.4 for an example of viewing the joystick address value.


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 95 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 2.1.

If you have already installed LES 2.1, you do not need to uninstall LES 
before making this change. After restarting Windows, go to the standard 
Joystick control panel applet to calibrate your Logitech digital device.

5.1.5 Diamond Edge 3D

This multimedia card is designed to be best used with console-type, Sega 
gamepads. Logitech digital gaming devices will only work in analog mode 
with this card. You may install a standard game card or other multi-
function card for use with the Logitech digital devices.


5.2 Y-Cables

There are some Y-cable adapters that are not fully compatible with Logitech 
Digital gaming devices. In some cases, a joystick 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 two Logitech Digital joysticks 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

The WingMan Extreme Digital is compatible with rudder or driving pedals, 
which are analog devices with built-in Y-cables. The Logitech digital 
driver will detect these devices and provide a check box in the standard 
Joystick control panel to enable the rudder to be calibrated. See also the 
rudder option description in the Advanced Options Dialog box in the LES 
Online Help.

5.4 Analog Joysticks

Logitech Digital gaming devices should not be used together with older 
analog joysticks or gaming devices. If a Y-cable is used to connect a 
Logitech Digital device and analog device, the digital device may not 
operate properly; it may only operate in analog mode. The only exception is 
when using rudder or driving pedals, which are analog devices with built-in 
Y-cables.


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 
2.1, 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 
joysticks. 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 Kombat 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. Note: the ThunderPad Digital gamepad will automatically use 
this emulation mode regardless of the setting.


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 joystick Button 
1 (the trigger) to complete each step. With these games, do not re-
configure joystick Button 1 in the LES Control Center to another function 
unless you have configured some other button as Button 1; the button on the 
base of WingMan Extreme Digital (Button 5) is useful for this purpose.

Fury 3
This Windows 95 game works fine with WingMan Extreme Digital when the 
LES software is set up normally (using digital driver). If you do not 
select the WingMan Extreme Digital entry in the standard Joystick 
control panel, but use one of the analog device entries such as `2-axis, 
4-button' or `WingMan Extreme' (both use analog drivers), the game will 
not operate properly.

Terminal Velocity
This DOS game works fine with WingMan Extreme Digital, but will run 
slower or with less stability when using the ThunderPad Digital gamepad. 
A workaround is to select joystick instead of gamepad in the game's 
calibration routine.

Mortal Kombat II (with Kraft AutoSet Pro game card)
With this DOS game, the AutoSet game card does not properly support the 
ThunderPad Digital gamepad. You should use the gameport on a standard 
sound card instead.

Duke Nukem 3D
Duke Nukem 3D is a popular DOS first-person fighting game that works 
well with Logitech WingMan Extreme Digital in its standard 
configuration. However, if you run the Duke SETUP.EXE program and change 
from the standard Joystick setting to the Thrustmaster/Wingman setting, 
then there may be some problems controlling Duke; usually the 
Lookup/Lookdown functions do not work properly. There are 2 ways to use 
Duke: in the Thrustmaster/Wingman mode, or in the standard Keyboard + 
Joystick mode.  Both are described below:

Thrustmaster/Wingman:
A setting is provided in the LES Control Center for the case described 
above. Simply select Duke Nukem 3D from the game list when playing Duke 
and the LES software will compensate for the Duke program. There is a 
check box in the Advanced dialog box inside the Change Game dialog box 
that controls this feature. It is called: `Use alternate POV option'. 
This will allow you to use Duke with the Controller Type set to: 
`Keyboard and Thrustmaster/Wingman'. One side-effect of this feature is 
that it may slow the game down a bit. If this is noticeable, then use 
the Keyboard and Joystick technique below.

Keyboard and Joystick:
This is the normal setting for Duke. In this case, the functions of the 
Hat switch will be provided using the LES Control Center. Create a new 
game setting for Duke in LES and assign functions such as Duck and Jump 
to the left and right positions of the Hat; also assign Aim Up and Aim 
Down to the up and down positions. Then save the setting and try it. Of 
course, the check box for `Use alternate POV option' should be checked 
off. In this mode, LES will generate the keystrokes for Duke's 
functions. Here are the recommended keystrokes to use:
	Hat Left  = Z (Duck)	Hat Down = Home key (Aim Up)
	Hat Right = A (Jump)	Hat Up   = End key  (Aim Down)

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

Descent and Descent II
This DOS game works fine with WingMan Extreme Digital 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.

Descent II
This DOS game normally works fine with Logitech digital gaming devices. 
If you are using the Logitech ThunderPad Digital and you have selected 
`Gravis Gamepad' in the game's control panel, you will not be able to 
calibrate your device. Though calibration of the ThunderPad Digital is 
not necessary on most systems, a solution is to select the game's 
`Joystick' option which will allow you to calibrate. Then, use the LES 
Control Center to configure the extra buttons of ThunderPad Digital to 
game-specific functions.

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

Daggerfall and SkyNET
This DOS game does not work with WingMan Extreme Digital or ThunderPad 
Digital when the LES software is set up normally (using digital driver). 
To use this game, select one of the Logitech analog device entries in 
the Windows 95 Joystick control panel. For the joystick, choose the 
`WingMan Extreme' entry; for the gamepad, choose the `ThunderPad' entry.

Or, you may choose the Windows 95 option to Restart in MS-DOS mode. This 
will exit Windows and put the gaming device into analog mode. Then in 
DOS, you may run Daggerfall. The Restart in MS-DOS option is found in 
the Start Menu, in the Shut Down... dialog box.

This problem does not happen on all systems. 

Star Control 3
This DOS game does not work properly with WingMan Extreme Digital when 
the LES software is set up normally (using digital driver). The game 
will operate very slowly. To use this game, choose the analog `WingMan 
Extreme' entry in the Windows 95 Joystick control panel. 

Or, you may choose the Windows 95 option to Restart in MS-DOS mode. This 
will exit Windows and put the gaming device into analog mode. Then in 
DOS, you may run Star Control 3. The Restart in MS-DOS option is found 
in the Start Menu, in the Shut Down... dialog box.

Note: this game will work fine in digital mode if you have standard 
rudder pedals attached to the gameport with the WingMan Extreme Digital. 
This is due to the game design.

Shockwave Assault
This Windows game does not work properly with WingMan Extreme Digital 
when the LES software is set up normally (using digital driver). The 
joystick control will be unstable. To use this game, choose the analog 
`WingMan Extreme' entry in the Windows 95 Joystick control panel. 

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.

Earthworm Jim
This DOS game does not work properly with Logitech digital gaming 
devices.

Eradicator
This DOS game does not work properly with WingMan Extreme Digital when 
the LES software is set up normally (using digital driver). Movement 
will be erratic. To use this game, choose the analog `WingMan Extreme' 
entry in the Windows 95 Joystick control panel.

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.


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 
Joystick 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 2.1 works well with 3rd-party uninstall programs such as 
CleanSweep, and Remove-It. Of course, LES 2.1 has its own uninstaller which 
we recommend for normal use. If during LES 2.1 installation, there is any 
conflict with an uninstall monitor program, then turn off the uninstall 
monitor and re-install LES 2.1.

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 control panel.

If restarting Windows 95 does not help, you may have to reinstall Logitech 
LES 2.1 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 
joystick 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 Joystick 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 Joystick

If you started Windows 95 using an analog joystick then later plugged in a 
Logitech Digital gaming device, your Logitech device will be in analog mode 
and the special functions of the LES software will be inoperative.

Go to the Windows 95 Joystick control panel and reselect Logitech Wingman 
Extreme Digital or Logitech ThunderPad Digital. In rare cases, you may need 
to first select `None', click the Apply button, then select the proper 
Logitech device.

7.6 Only Joystick 1 Works in DOS Games

DOS games generally only support one gaming device at a time. Joystick #1 
is the device that will be available in DOS games. The Joystick number is 
selected in the Windows 95 Joystick 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 Joystick Throttle Control Does Not Work in DOS Games

DOS games can either use the Hat control or the Throttle control but not 
both. Since the Hat is always used when in digital mode, the Throttle is 
inactive in DOS games. If the Throttle control is desired, you may operate 
the WingMan Extreme Digital in one of its analog modes. Refer to the LES 
Online Help in the section `Using Joystick Modes'.

7.9 Could Not Calibrate When Upgrading from LES 1.0 to 2.1

If you have LES 1.0 currently installed, and are now installing LES 2.1, 
you may have trouble calibrating your Logitech Digital gaming device during 
the installation process. You may either continue the installation and 
calibrate the device after Windows 95 restarts, or do the following:

1. During the calibration phase of the installation, the Windows 95 
Joystick control panel's Calibration window will be shown.
2. Choose Back (or equivalent button) to return to the 1st page of the 
Joystick panel.
3. Choose `None' from the device list.
4. Click the Apply button. Wait for it to respond.
5. Now select the Logitech digital gaming device that you are installing 
from the device list.
6. Click Apply. Then click Calibrate and do the calibration.
7. Continue the installation process.

Note: the steps may vary depending on your Windows 95 configuration.

7.10 Did Not Calibrate During Installation

In general, if you do not calibrate your Logitech Digital gaming device 
during the installation of LES 2.1, just complete the installation and do 
the calibration after Windows 95 restarts. Occasionally, a new device is 
not detected during installation. A message appears asking you to Retry or 
Cancel the detection process. You may click Cancel, then complete the 
remaining steps of the installation.

To select and calibrate the gaming device after Windows 95 restarts, do the 
following steps:

1. From the Start menu, select Settings, then Control Panel.
2. Open the `Joystick' or `Gaming Devices' applet.
3. With Joystick 1 shown, select your Logitech Digital gaming device 
from the Device list.
4. Click the Calibrate button and follow the instructions in the 
calibration panel. Click Finish when done.
5. Click OK in the next panel to save the calibration settings.
6. Your device should be ready to use.

Note: the steps may vary depending on your Windows 95 configuration.

7.11 Calibrating WingMan Extreme Digital in Analog Mode

The WingMan Extreme Digital joystick can be used in analog mode by 
selecting a different driver in the Joystick control panel such as `WingMan 
Extreme' or `2-axis, 4-button'. Normally, this should work fine. 
Occasionally, when calibrating the device in the Windows 95 Joystick 
control panel, the crosshair in the Test panel will not be centered 
following calibration. This possibly could affect some games. In this case, 
the solution is to use digital mode.

7.12 The Cursor Slowed Down After Changing Joysticks

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.

7.13 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 95 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.

7.14 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 Analog Modes of Logitech Digital Gaming Devices

Complete information about the analog modes is available in LES Online Help 
in the section `Using Joystick Modes'. Analog mode is enabled when real DOS 
is being used, or when a Logitech Digital device is NOT selected in the 
Windows 95 Joystick control panel.  Brief information is provided below:

The Wingman Extreme Digital joystick has 2 analog modes. To switch modes, 
press a base button for at least 3 seconds as follows:

	Press button	Analog mode				Key function
	------------	-------------------------	--------------
	5 (near cable)	CH Flightstick Pro		Throttle is active
	6 (near player)  *WingMan/Thrustmaster FCS	Hat is active

(*) This is the default analog mode; it is active after power-on.

The ThunderPad Digital gamepad has 2 different firing modes for each button 
in analog mode. The 2 center buttons (one dot and two dots) program the 
firing modes as follows:

	Hold button..	..then press another button	Firing mode
	--------------	---------------------------	--------------
	one dot		(any, except dot buttons)	Turbo
	two dots		(any, except dot buttons)	Toggle
	both			(any, except dot buttons)	Normal


8.2 Backup Game Settings

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

Advanced users may use the REGEDIT technique (in Windows 95) to export game 
sets from current LES configurations, then use the LES Import function as 
needed.
