    I got this game for my little brother called Cabela's 4x4 Off-Road Adventure 2. The problem I'm having is with the joystick. Windows recognizes it fine but I can't get the game to recognize the joystick. It worked fine on my brother's old HP Celeron 500. I upgraded his pc with my old one to a P3 600, on board sound, and a Voodoo 3 that I had laying around. Can anyone provide any insight into what might be causing my problem?

    some games don't support joysticks especially cars games you need gamepad.
    try this, go to control panel/game controller/add ( choose from the menu the type of your joystick. test it there.

    ALready tried that. The joystick worked fine on the old system. I have updated what driver i can but I was not able to update them all. The mobo has onboard sound, therefore onboard gameport, and unfortunatley I was not able to update these drivers. Any other ideas?
