T h e P C - S I G L i b r a r y o n C D - R O M ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 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.

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.

P C - S I G ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 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.

Since 1982 PC-SIG has developed an unprecedented library of shareware programs, constantly updated, consistently strong in every category.

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.

SDI2040 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. TRANSLATION 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.

S H A R E W A R E M A G A Z I N E ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ 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 environment. Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language. 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.
