Hi Guys,
Just installed WinXp Pro, Now i cannot get my old ms sidewinder force feedback pro joystick to work(gameport),i also use a USB MSFB Wheel so have game controller software 4 installed.Everytime i try to install version 3 windows will not let me,consequently i cannot program any game schemes,my question is anyone using WinXP and the old msff pro,if so how did you manage to install onto winxp.

TIA

Yep. Known issue. XP doesn't like the gameport version.

Also, don't use the software. Simply, plug un the USB controller and let windows identify it and "automatically" install the drivers.

What Thunderbolt said skellum, I tried the software and mucho problems with XP home, just plug into the usb and so far, problem free for me. Enjoy the game!
