I'm new here, but i need a few tips. I am running a Windows Flight sim('98) on a Windows 2k. There is one problem- my joysticks and controller are all registering that i am telling it to pull back. :mad:And my calibrator registers perfect. Help!!:dead:

Re: Help!

There is a setting that should say invert y-axis, make sure that this is unchecked. Make sure that the game is mapped to the joystick.

falcon, i think he means that even when the stick is in a neutral position, the game is still registering a non-neutral movement of the joystick.

I have had this issue with Joysticks in the past, usually it resulted in buying a new joystick. Perhaps also throwing a fit and seeing how well the joysticks flies at a wall. I'm not certain though, there could be a fix for it. have you checked to see if there are drivers/control software available for your Joystick?

Actually, yes. i do have software for both my controller and my MS sidewinder forcefeedback joystik. But the sidewinder feedback doesnt work, and windows 2k wont accept the software for it.

Well, Windows 2k is pretty old and was known for compatibility problems. Have you thought about upgrading to XP? I realize this is slightly out of the scope of your question, but I think it would fix this issue and most likely other problems you may be having.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
