Question about Microsoft SideWinder 3D Pro Joystick

1 Answer

I cannot load my disk Setup on my computer with Window Vista syst

It looks to me that Window Vista Premium Edition is not compatible with that logiciel. I had that joystick before with Flight Simulator for Windows 95 and was wiorking very well.. I know that, that joystick was sold specially fior Flight Sim 95. Is there a new program that could permit me to use that "Digital Optical Joystick" loadable on computers operating with Window Vista? Thank your very much for your kind support, I remain, yours truly, Fernand Trepanier.

Win95 was a 16bit programme so unless you load Win95 nothing will work properly.

SOURCE: MCFS Joystick Problem

Make sure, that your Joystick is compatible with the version you are having problems with. If not, make sure that it's enabled in the configuration of MCFS. If none of those work, you will most likely have to purchase a more compatible Joystick.

D3drm.dll i cant load it for flight simulator


is the flight simulator compatible with vista? Do you have all the needed requirments.
If yes to the above then try scanning the pc for errors.
On the other hand right click the setup and choose compatibility from the list and set it to a previous version of windows (example windows xo service pack 3) and select the run in administrator mode. Apply the changes and reinstall. You can again right click (that is the setup) and select run as administrator for the game to have full access to the pc.
good luck and do let me know of the outcome

Joystick will not work with Combat Flight Simulator WWII Europe


Some joysticks are not compatible with certan games for expmple when i am using flight simulator and change to my combat flight simulator i have to change joysticks
the only other thing i would think is try deleting the currently installed driver for the joystick and then download a driver for a joystick that is surported, it wont work as well but at least it might accully work

When I bank right or left with joystick the screen Freezes


To check the joystick isn't the problem, go into control panel game controls, then check that the joystick appears and you can move the cross-hair around on screen, most modern joysticks are
auto-calibrating, but you could try running the calibration.

To check the game isn't a problem, unplug the joystick, then use the arrow keys to fly the plane, if it doesn't crash when you bank then it isn't the game.

I assume the game is Combat Flight Simulator 3, as very old games that were written for Windows 95,98,ME series often won't run on Windows NT,2000,XP,Vista as they are completely different versions of Windows. If this is actually Flight Simulator 3, you may need to consider buying a later version of Flight Simulator (FSX is the latest version, but may not run on your laptop).

Other things to try are updating the graphics card driver.

Norton shouldn't need deactivating, although it could cause problems if you're playing online.

Also remember that laptop graphics cards are never as powerful as desktop graphics, and games very rarely specifically support laptop graphics.

Hope this helps.

Combat flight simulator wont recognize my sidewinder precision 2 joystick on vista but it did on xp?


I am farmiliar with most flight simulators and know that you have to go to settings on the main menu the controls and select joystick, enable joystick and/or calibrate joystick. If this doesn't wok then in gameplay push "alt" on your keyboard if the task bar for flight simulator isn't at the top. Once or if it is allready there select settings and then enable joystick. If this doesn't work then call or contact or google microsoft flight simulator.
