    I am already using a Logitech 12 button Joystick a 3Dpro USB. A new installation pack was downloaded from Logitech

    Firstly, I do not pay for information, as give it freely if I have the information available. The information was published in a magazine soon after the game was released, I know because I used it then on Windows 98. I managed to trash the motherboard on my workstation, and that is a total rebuilt job. Progress you might say. There is not a game port on this laptop, only USB, so I now have two Joysticks both unusable. You go so far in a game, save it, then delete the game. Then buy another.Unfortunatly, I did not keep the magazine page, Now I tear them out and stick them in the boxes of the games that I like. That is hind sight.



    I have not solved the problem, but have to learn a new keyboard, and a mouse. I can do things with a joystick that cannot be done with a mouse.



    compliments,



    Phil Walmsley.

Ahh! I see the issue now! I have the same game... I looked for a way to turn on joystick control and there doesn't seem to be one.

You need something that will read the movements and translate them into keystrokes. This program, GlovePie, might do the trick:

  • Min RAM Size 16.0 MB
