This may well be the greatest collection of software ever compiled.

The PC-SIG Library on CD-ROM is our premier collection of the entire
PC-SIG library.  Every shareware program we have is on one disc; over
900 megabytes of software you can have immediate access to.

Easy to use, all you have to do is insert the disc and type 'INSTALL' at
the DOS prompt.  We've included all the tools you need for fast easy
access to the programs and their descriptions.

The WordCruncher text retrieval software allows you to quickly access
the description for any program you want.  All the programs are indexed
by title, filename, PC-SIG disk number, and every word within the
program description.  There couldn't be an easier way to find just the
right program.  All the programs are logically divided into thirteen
major categories with subcategories, making it easier to find just the
right software.

All of the programs have been scanned for viruses.  There are also three
online virus utilities that can be run from the CD-ROM which will scan,
screen and clean viruses.  Not only does this save hard disk space, but
also gives every user added security from viruses.

Whether you're interested in Accounting or Windows, there's a shareware
program for you on the PC-SIG Library on CD-ROM.

Winner of the Optical Publishing Assn's Best Consumer Product Award.

Shareware for every imaginable need: Accounting Chemistry Educational
Engineering Games Hypertext Networks Programming Spreadsheets Utilities
Word Processing

Additional BBS file descriptions are available from PC-SIG so that the
CD-ROM can be set up quickly on a bulletin board.

System Requirements:

IBM PC/XT/AT PS/2 or compatible with 530K memory DOS 3.1 or higher and
a graphics monitor (Hercules/EGA/VGA/SVGA).  A mouse is optional.

"Never before has such a valuable collection of popular shareware been
compiled on one CD-ROM that everyone can afford." Dr. File Finder a.k.a.
Michael Callahan

Finally, 368 of the most useful, popular, important shareware programs
have been put together on one CD. No matter what your need, it's on The
Essential Home & Business Collection.  Everything from Administration to
Windows software is here.

The Essential CD incorporates the WordCruncher text retrieval system.
Every program on the disc is indexed by title, filename, PC-SIG disk
number, and every word in the program description.  A new utility, Narc,
is implemented so you can look at the program files and the author's
on-line documentation without having to first copy the program to your
hard disk.  By using WordCruncher and Narc, you can quickly find the
program you want and review it to be sure, without ever having to run it
from your hard disk.

If you've got a CD-ROM player at home and want to get more use of it and
your computer, or if you're trying to avoid purchasing another Nintendo
cartridge, or if you just enjoy looking at new software, you need The
Essential Home & Business Collection.

System Requirements:

IBM PC/XT/AT PS/2 or compatible with 384K memory DOS 3.1 or higher and
Microsoft MS-DOS CD ROM extensions.

                      The PC-SIG Games CD-ROM

Now you can play a game a day fo over a year.  This CD-ROM is jammed
with over 380 shareware games of all types, designed to appeal to the
new generation of CD-ROM users out for fun.  The CD incorporates a
hypermedia interface and allows 250 of the games to be played directly
from the CD-ROM.

The hottest games in shareware are on this disk, including the
action/arcade games "Jill of the Jungle" and "Wolfenstein 3D," which
rival or surpass commercial PC and Nintendo for use of animation,
SoundBlaster audio, and VGA graphics.  There are also games designed to
teach children mathematics, spelling and even ecology.  All these games
for less than a dime each!

Over 250 of the games can be played directly from the CD without copying
them to a floppy or a hard drive.  Being able to run from the CD means
that users can explore games without using up valuable hard disk space
or spending time downloading and deleting files.  The hypermedia
interface makes it easy to browse the titles, read a one line
description or full review, and copy or start a game by clicking the
mouse or using the keyboard.

Welcome to the world of Shareware, state of the art software you can
actually try before you buy.

Shareware, a term coined in the early eighties, refers to the method of
distribution chosen by the software authors.  With shareware, you can
receive a program and put it through its paces without having to pay for
it. If you find the program useful, and choose to keep the program, then
you pay a modest registration fee to the author.

For the last nine years, PC-SIG has been providing shareware and public
domain software to its customers and members.  Since 1982 PC-SIG has
developed an unprecedented library of shareware programs, constantly
updated, consistently strong in every category.  Our library of
shareware contains over 3500 titles divided into 120 logical categories.

Every program we add to the library is thoroughly reviewed and tested to
insure that each one meets the high standards of reliability and value we
insist upon and you expect.  As a result, our library doesn't contain
every shareware program available, just those that really work.

PC-SIG has grown into the premier distributor of shareware and and
shareware information by producing shareware collections on CD-ROM,
publishing an encyclopedia of shareware, and by publishing Shareware
Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine distributed world-wide.

Quality and support - guaranteed.  All of our programs are guaranteed
virus free.  We've isolated our systems and check every program
submitted to insure that no viruses make their way to your computer or

Our support staff is available by phone as well as on our BBS to help
you with questions about installation and operation of PC-SIG's

Through our network of international distributors, PC- SIG strives to
bring you the most current, exciting, technically advanced software
available as shareware.

If you can't find the software you need in PC-SIG's library, it may well
not exist.

                                What is it?
                            How do you play it?
                         Benefits of Registration?

    What is it?

        In the simplest sense, SDI2040 is an Invaders-like arcade game
        with a twist or two.  It is available for both the Macintosh II
        and IBM PC compatible line of personal computers, with both 
        versions having digitized sound (PC version requires Soundblaster
        for digitized sound) and full-color graphics (VGA required for
        PC version).  SDI2040 is also much more.  It is our friendly
        attempt to introduce the world (or even a small subset of the
        world) to EAST WING SOFTWARE, a company we hope you will be 
        hearing much more from in the future.  We are very small, just a
        Mac-guy and a PC-guy who have played computer games since they 
        were brand new.  Now we want to use our experience programming
        graphics systems and playing computer games to do something really
        productive, bring you quality computer entertainment at very
        reasonable prices.  SDI2040 is our way of letting you know.

    How do you play it?

        SDI2040 is as classic and simple as a computer game gets.  The
        aliens (aka invaders, creatures, etc.) are BAD, BAD.   They are
        invading our beloved planet and our only hope is to use the old,
        forgotten Strategic Defense Initiative hardware left over from
        a 20th Century republic known as the United States of America.
        Your job is to use the SDI cannon to destroy wave upon wave of
        these god-less creatures (A violent goal, yes, but simple.) 
        The invaders have a few surprises for you, so be ready.  All the
        keyboard definitions and other related documentation can be 
        found in the file SDI.DOC included with this distribution.

    Benefits of Registration?

        At EAST WING SOFTWARE we want to make contact with YOU, and that
        is what registration of SDI2040 is all about.  We would really
        like to hear from you, so we want you to register, whether you
        send the small registration fee or not.  If you don't send
        the fee, we will still appreciate any comments or suggestions
        that you have and we will place you on our mailing list.  If you
        do enclose the modest fee, we will send you a disk with the 
        latest version of SDI2040 along with enhanced digitized sounds.
        You will also be placed on our mailing list and will be notified 
        in advance of future releases and will be eligible to become beta
        testers for future releases.  (Our current project is a 3D space
        combat game with a plot that is both unique and exciting.)  The
        registration form is the file SDIREGIS.DOC and is complete with
        full instructions on the registration process.  Another way to
        register SDI2040 is to purchase the full C source code for the
        game.  This is an option that provides additional incentive to 
        anyone who would like to explore the techniques required to 
        produce smooth animation, game logic, sound, etc.  The fee is
        still small and includes all the aforementioned registration
        benefits.  Finally, if you just want to leave your address, a
        quick comment or question, you can E-mail us on America Online.
        Our screen name is EastWing.  Whichever method you choose, we
        sincerely look forward to hearing from you.

    Disclaimers and Necessary Legal Stuff

        SDI2040 is provided "AS IS", with no warranty, implied or otherwise,
        regarding fitness or merchantability for any given purpose.  Under
        no circumstances will East Wing Software or the authors be liable
        for any loss, addiction, or other damage associated with the use
        of this software, including but not limited to incidental, 
        consequential, special or other damages.  The full responsibilities
        and risks of having fun with this program are yours.


        This is a simple game that we are providing as shareware, bottom
        line.  Since this game has been a quick project to get in touch
        with potential customers for our future games, there are probably
        bugs.  If there are, we would like to know about them.  We might
        even fix them.  We have purposely left out a lot of features that
        we would normally include in a piece of entertainment software.
        Things like joystick support, better sound from the PC speaker,
        expanded memory support, better art-work, music, etc. will all be
        included in future products, but were beyond the scope of this
        project.  If you would like to add them yourself, send for the 
        source code.  SDI2040 was tested on a Gateway 2000 386-25 and a
        Mac IIsi.  It runs fine under DOS 4.01 and 5.0 on the PC and 
        System 6.07 and 7.0 on the Mac.  We weren't able to test it on
        any other platforms, so if you have problems with yours, again
        send for the source code and tweak it for your environment.
        With all that in mind, we want you to enjoy SDI2040, but we just
        can't accept any responsibility for any problems it might cause.

        reasonable registration policy for SDI2040.  SDI2040 is 
        protected under the copyright laws of the United States of
        America.  East Wing Software reserves all rights provided
        by these laws.
        To run SDI2040, make sure that all the files are on the
        same disk and in the same directory and type:

        There will be a brief introduction followed immediately by
        the first wave of aliens.

        There aren't many rules for playing SDI2040.  Just shoot 
        everything, because it will invariably be trying to shoot 
        you.  If the Aliens reach the platform, you're history too.
        The keyboard definitions are as follows:

                MOVE LEFT                   F, <LEFT ARROW>
                STOP CANNON                 G, <DOWN ARROW>
                MOVE RIGHT                  H, <RIGHT ARROW>
                FIRE CANNON                 <SPACE>

                SET CANNON SPEED            1 - 4, (1=slowest, 4=fastest)
                INCREASE INVADER SPEED      +  (Plus key)
                DECREASE INVADER SPEED      -  (Minus Key)
                RESET INVADER SPEED         R

        We would normally make these keys configurable, but as mentioned
        in the README.TXT file, we have intentionally left some features
        out of this introductory game.  If you would like to change these
        key definitions, please see the README.TXT file for details
        on how you may obtain the full C source code to SDI2040.

        P.S.  We have only been able to get around 60,000 points playing 
              SDI2040.  If you do better, let us know.

Shareware Magazine has distinguished itself as the only internationally
distributed periodical devoted to the use and business of shareware.
Shareware Magazine provides detailed reviews of new products,
hard-hitting comparisons of shareware programs with regular retail
software, and timely information about changes in the industry and the
latest technology.

Intriguing columnists and regular features add to the excitement.  The
beginners section sheds light on new user's concerns regarding
everything from choosing the right operating system to alleviating the
intimidation of using on-line systems.

Educational sections focus on how low cost shareware can aid in
classroom learning, curriculum development, and as a forum for
discussing the impact of computers and technology in schools.

Graphics Gallery renders expert advice and suggestions on how to better
work with graphics, desktop publishing, CAD systems, and the Windows

Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or
polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming

And columnists provide that subjective component, sometimes
controversial, that calls for a closer look at the way we compute and
how shareware effects what we do.

Published bimonthly, Shareware Magazine is available on a subscription
or at your local newsstand or computer bookstore.  In conjunction with
PC-SIG, there are special benefits for subscribers as well as
opportunities for discount purchases from PC-SIG.
