I. System Requirements.

EARTHSIGE II requires Windows 95 and Direct Draw (DirectX)

to run.

This demo is optimized for performance on a Pentium based

machine with at least 16 megabytes of RAM. The minimum

supported machine is a 486/66MHz with Localbus, SVGA, mouse,

and eight megabytes of RAM.

If you are running this demo on a non-pentium machine, you

may find better results if you run in 320X200 resolution.

See the section on "Launching the Demo" for further



II. Installation

For this demo to work you MUST first decompress the files.

Copy all of the Demo files to an empty directory on

your hard disk and run:



III. Notes about Direct Draw

If your machine does not have the Direct Draw (DirectX) drivers

installed, you will need to download them seperately. The

EARTHSIEGE 2 demo will not run without DirectX installed.

The demo will launch in a window by default. You can click

on the maximize button inside the upper right hand corner of

the game window to switch to full screen mode. Not all video

cards support direct draw's full screen mode. If you experience

problems in full screen mode, press the "Alt" and "Enter" keys

at the same time to switch back to windowed mode.


IV. Launching the demo

To run the demo, either type "ES" in a DOS box, or double-

click on the ES icon in Explorer.

You can run at 320X200 resolution by adding a " -v0"

(space, minus sign, lowercase 'v' and numerical zero) after

"ES" in a DOS box. Your command line would look like

this: ES -v0




If you wish to use a joystick, you must first calibrate it in

the Win '95 control panel. You will only have to do this once.

Joystick or numberpad keys = steering, forward, reverse
