What is the Profile Editor Software?
The Profile Editor is a program that allows you to customize your SGC2910 Wireless PC Controller for PC
games that do not support USB game controllers. It can program keyboard keys and mouse movement to the
SGC2910, allowing you to use the controller with PC games that only support the mouse and keyboard.You can
create multiple profiles for each PC game you own. This allows you to have a customized control layout for the
various PC games you play.
What is Profile?
A Profile is a set of programmed keyboard keys and control settings that determines how your SGC2910
functions in a PC game. Multiple Profiles can be created and saved for use with multiple games.
Should I use the Profile Editor?
The use of the Profile Editor is optional. If a PC game supports USB game controllers then you should not use
the Profile Editor. Most PC games have an “Options/Setup” or “Controller Configuration” menu screen where
you can configure your controller’s buttons to perform commands in the game. It is recommended that you use
these menu screens if available. Users should configure the SGC2910 by using the game’s configuration screen.
The Profile Editor is for use with PC games that only support the mouse and keyboard as input devices. Typically,
game controllers could not be used with these PC games. The Profile Editor will allow you to use your SGC2910
with these PC games.You are able to assign keyboard keys, mouse buttons, and mouse movement to the
controller with the Profile Editor. This will allow you to use the SGC2910 with PC games that only support the
keyboard and mouse.
Note: Check if your PC game supports USB game controllers. If it does, then you should not use the Profile
Editor. To verify if a PC game will work with USB game controllers, you should check the recommended
specifications on the game packaging, check the instruction manual, or look in the game’s “Options/Setup”
menu.You can also check the game publisher’s website or contact their technical support department.

Question
When I plug my SGC2910 in and Windows runs through the detection process it asks me for my Windows CD. I
do not have a Windows CD as it was not supplied with my computer so what do I do?
Answer 1
Check and verify that you have the Windows CD.
If you have the Windows CD, you should insert it into your CD-ROM drive. The actual files that Windows is
looking for when you are trying to install the SGC2910 are called Cab files and these are usually found in a
directory on your Windows CD (Win98 if you have Windows 98SE or Win9x if you have Windows ME).You will
need to select the appropriate CD-ROM directory when asked by Windows. The necessary files will then by
copied to your PC.
Answer 2
Win98SE and ME may require the Windows CD to complete the installation.
Some PC manufacturers do not provide a Windows CD with their computer when they ship it to the customer.
The actual files that Windows is looking for when you are trying to install the SGC2910 are called Cab files and
these are usually found in a directory on your Windows CD (Win98 if you have Windows 98 or Win9x if you
have Windows ME). However, if the manufacturer did not give you a CD then they may have made a backup of
these files somewhere on your hard drive.
The standard location to place these files is the C:\Windows\Options\Cabs directory or, sometimes, simply the
C:\Cabs directory.You can also try the C:\Windows\System32\Drivers directory for the location of the files. The
last possible location to place these files is C:\Win98 or C:\Win9x.
When the Windows installer for the SGC2910 asks you for your Windows CD simply click OK - it will come
back to you saying that it can not find a particular file and at the bottom of the window that comes up it will tell
you where it is trying to Copy The Files From in a small window.
Click in this window and delete whatever is in there and try replacing it with one of the above locations. If
neither works then you should get in touch with the company who supplied your PC and ask them where your
Cab files are kept on your PC.

FAQs
Answer 2
The PC game supports USB controllers but the controller still doesn’t work.
The SGC2910 will not automatically work with PC games that support USB controllers. You will need to
configure the SGC2910 to the game. The procedure for doing this varies from game to game.You need to
consult the game’s instruction manual or contact the game publisher for instructions.
Usually, you will need to enter the PC game’s options or setup menu. Within this menu there should be a
“controller configuration” menu.You will need to change the input device to the connected game controller.
The default input device is usually the keyboard. Once this is completed you still need to configure/assign/map
the buttons and controls of the SGC2910 to the game. The “controller configuration” menu should display all
the gameplay functions of the PC game and the default keys that control these functions. For example, Jump =
Space key. Within this screen you should click on the gameplay function you wish to configure and then press
the desired button on the SGC2910. The exact procedure for configuring the gameplay functions will vary from
game to game. Consult the PC game’s instruction manual.

Question
My SGC2910 does not vibrate with my PC game.
Answer 1
PC game doesn’t support vibration or force feedback.
You need to verify that the PC game in question supports vibration or force feedback. The majority of PC
games do not. The SGC2910 will only work in PC games that support vibration or force feedback.
You should check the game’s instruction manual and packaging. Also check the website of the game publisher
and developer. If you still can not find any information you should try contacting the game publisher.
Most PC games that only support the mouse and keyboard as input devices do not support vibration feedback.
Please keep this in mind.
Answer 2
PC game supports vibration feedback but the SGC2910 still doesn’t vibrate.
Please make sure you have installed the SGC2910 software from the SGC2910 CD. Please test the controller’s
vibration in the “Gaming Options/Game Controllers” applet found in the Windows Control Panel. If the
SGC2910’s vibration feedback works when tested then the problem is with the PC game.
There are many different force feedback and rumble effects available. The supported effects will vary from game
to game. Unfortunately, due to differences in software and hardware design, the PC game controller may not
support all the effects of the PC game.You will find that the range of effects that the Wireless PC Controller
supports will vary from game to game.

FAQs
Profile Editor Software Questions
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question
I received a “Can’t connect to SGC2910 Wireless PC Controller Controller!” when I click on the SGC2910 icon.
Answer
The SGC2910 is not connected to your PC’s USB port.
Verify that the SGC2910 is directly connected to a USB port on your PC. The SGC2910 must be connected in
order to use the Profile Editor.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question
What does the profile editor do?
Answer
The Profile Editor allows the SGC2910 to emulate mouse and keyboard commands on the controller. This
makes the SGC2910 compatible with all computer games, even those that do not support controllers.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Question
Why aren’t my controls working correctly in my PC game? The SGC2910 acts erratically when I use the Profile Editor.
Answer 1
The game may support USB game controllers.
Check to verify if your PC game supports USB game controllers. If it does, you should not use the Profile Editor
with the PC game.You should only use the default profile when your PC game supports USB game controllers.
When you assign a keyboard key to the controller’s button, pressing that button when now send the controller
button command and the keyboard key command. This isn’t a problem with PC games that only support the
mouse and keyboard. This PC game will only register the keyboard key. However, a game that supports USB
game controllers will register the controller button and keyboard key. So the game will assume you are pressing
a controller button and keyboard key at the same time.
If you desire to use a custom profile with these games, you can check if the PC game has a joystick/controller
enable option. If it does, try disabling it and then see if you can use the Profile Editor with the PC game.
Answer 2
You may have loaded the wrong profile for your controller.
Check and verify that you are using the correct profile for the game you desire to play.You should get into
the habit of checking the profile before you start your PC game. This will ensure the SGC2910 is correctly
configured for the game you desire to play.
When you start your PC or reboot you must start the Profile Editor and load the desired profile. Also, if the
PC loses connection with your SGC2910 you will need to start the Profile Editor and load the desired profile.

Question
I want to use my SGC2910 in First Person Shooters games. I want my SGC2910 to perform similarly to my
Playstation2 controller. How can I configure the SGC2910 to do this?
Answer
Most First Person Shooter games (FPS) are designed to only support the mouse and keyboard. Most developers
consider the mouse and keyboard to provide the best control, so controller support is usually very basic or not
included.
Currently, our Profile Editor will not allow you to setup the SGC2910 so it emulates the Playstation2 control setup
in FPS game. Currently, only mouse movement can be assigned to the SGC2910 analog sticks.You can configure the
D-pad to the WASD keys and the right analog stick to mouse movement. This will allow you to use the SGC2910
d-pad to control character movement and the right analog stick to control the camera movement.
