It looks like there is some problem with Microsoft SideWinder Game Controller Software 4.0 & the new nVidia ForceWare 61.76 WHQL or 61.77 driver. When you move the controller (SideWinder Precision Pro 2 FFB), there is a huge frame rate drop. That does not happen with 56.72 or any previous drivers. Does anyone had the same problem? Tested in IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles & Ace Expansion Pack 2.04 with DirectX 9b and DirectX 9c.
Windows XP SP1 & updates
All WHQL drivers
Pentium 4 @ 2 GHz and 512MB Rambus
nVidia GeForce4 Ti 4600
