Question about Infogrames B-17 Flying Fortress for Windows

Problems with my Flight Yoke or the game

Does B-17 Flying Fortress, the Mighty 8th! for PC, works
(or is it compatible) with my Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System?
I think, I tried everything possible, to make it work but with no success...My Flight Yoke works very well with other Flight Simulations except for B-17.
All I need to know is; if it is compatible with the game or not?
if it is, I'd like to know how!

Thank you for your time

    I had the same problem years ago with this game. I gave up and moved on to IL-2

    I think there were problems with usb joysticks. However, I seem to remember that there is a workaround for it, or a config edit, something like that.
    So there is a possible solution.

    Maybe try asking at SimHQ.

    Not a very active forum, but chances are someone will drop in that knows how to get you up and running.

    Good luck

If the LCD is not working then it is likely that required drivers are either not working or missing. Try downloading updated drivers from the Saitek website.

For how low have you had the Yoke?

This a known fault with the front display on the Yoke failing, it's caused by the LED's being faulty or a inperfect contact there.

If the Yoke functions correctly then it might be one of the above.

If you still have warranty, meaning if you purchased the Yoke less then 2 years ago, try to ask for a replacement for it either from the retailer of from Saitek.

hope it helps...

I purchased a Saitek pro yoke online and when I turn the control to the right it squeaks, is there a solution for this problem.


Rub a shoe shine pad on the yoke shaft. These pads have silicone on them and it will act as a lubricant until the yoke beds in.
