Kinect Manual Leaked, Shows Requirements

Did you know two people playing Kinect need to stand 8 feet from the camera? Did you know Kinect needs to be placed 2-6 feet high to work? Did you know that you don’t need a Kinect power pack if you own a 360 Slim?
You do now.

VG247 has received photographs of the entire Kinect manual, revealing final, consumer-facing information on setting up and using the motion camera.
The required play distances are confirmed in the document: "The sensor can see you when you are approximately 6 feet (2 meters) from the sensor. For two people, you should play approximately 8 feet (2.5 meters) from the sensor."
The manual also provides height information for placing: "For the best play space and sensor performance, place your sensor between 2 and 6 feet (0.6 and 2 meters) high, the closer to the low or high limit the better."
You’re also warned that you should "not put the sensor on your console."
The peripheral’s manual confirms that an external power pack needs to be used unless you own a Slim.
"For Xbox 360 S consoles, power is supplied by the console. For original Xbox 360 consoles, you’ll need to connect the sensor to a standard wall outlet."
If you own a Slim, the camera’s simply plugged into the AUX input.
Kinect comes with a software disc which needs to be installed for it to work. We’re going to assume this is included in the upcoming 360 dashboard update.
"Troubleshooting"
There’s a troubleshooting section at the back of the manual, which tells you how to fix stuff if it all goes wrong.
If the camera can’t see you, you should "turn on lights to brighten the play space," "try wearing different colored clothing that contrasts with the background of your play space," and "prevent lights, including sunlight, from shining directly on the sensor."
You’re also warned to make sure the system is "well-ventilated."
Check out the images below. There’s a page missing here which detailed how to install the software; the photo was really blurred.
Kinect launches in the US on November 4 and the UK on November 10.
