The P120 is compatible with IBM PC Pentium systems, and will work
with your Windows® 95/98-based games. Carefully designed to be both
versatile and ergonomically sound, this gamepad is meant to fit a wide
range of hand sizes, offering long grips for comfortable play! As shown
under Features and Controls, the P120 boasts 4 fire buttons, 2 quick-fire
triggers, and a fast, responsive 8-way D-Pad. You also have the option of
attaching a mini joystick handle, which can be conveniently stored right
inside the unit when not in use.
2. …THEN DO THE CALIBRATION!
After setting up the P120 as described under Getting Connected,
calibrate your gamepad, as follows:
a. Click Start, and select Settings, then Control Panel.
b. Double-click the Game Controllers icon.
c. First remove any existing controllers shown on the General tab by
clicking on Remove. Select Add on the General tab, then select
[Custom…], at the top of the dropdown list.
d. Select 3 axes and 4 buttons.
e. Click on the Special Characteristics box, and select Is a game
pad. Type in P120 for the name, and then click on OK.
f. You’re now back at the Game Controllers screen. Making sure that
P120 is highlighted, click on the Properties button to open the
Game Controller Properties dialog box.
g. Select Calibrate, and follow the on-screen instructions to calibrate
the D-Pad and buttons. To calibrate the third axis, press the two
quick-fire triggers on the underside of the gamepad, click on Finish.
h. Click on Test, and try out your P120. The D-Pad cursor should reach
all four corners of the square, and the fire button indicators should
turn on as the fire buttons are pressed. The two quick-fire trigger on
the underside of the unit are represented by a vertical bar in the
center. The indicator should go up when you press one button, and
down when you press the other.
i. After checking out the D-Pad and all the buttons, quit by clicking OK.
Time to load your game and start playing!
3. HAVE QUESTIONS? HERE’S SOME HELP!
a. My computer is not recognizing the P120 as an active game
controller. What’s wrong?
• Check the cable connections. Turn your computer off, and unplug
your gamepad from the computer’s game port. Then plug it back

in, making certain that the connection is snug.
• Are you using an extender cable or a Y-connector? Since these
cables can sometimes cause problems, we suggest that your P120
be connected directly to the game port.
b. My buttons don’t seem to be reacting correctly! Why?
• Check your Game Controller Setup, as described in Section 2.
Make sure that you have selected 3 axes and 4 buttons.
• Try calibrating the gamepad again. Even if you have already done
this, sometimes recalibrating can solve problems.
c. Can I have another controller connected at the same time?
• To avoid potential problems and conflicts, we recommend that you
remove any existing controllers before installing your P120
gamepad. Do this by selecting the previously installed controller in
the Game Controller window, and clicking on Remove. Then, add
the P120 as instructed in Section 2.
d. I calibrated the P120 and loaded my game, but the game instructions say I have to calibrate it again. Why?
• Most current games make use of the Windows game controller
and calibration information. Some older games, however, may
require you to define the gamepad and calibrate it again within the
program. In these cases, refer to your game manual.
