Just bought my Saitek Evo Force, my first ever FF stick, and what a great thing it is. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Now, to get the very most out of it, I'd like to use the shift buttons feature, which, if I'm correct, will double my buttons(?) and I can't see anything in the manual or help files.

At risk of coming across as a complete fool, how do I programme them?

I've got all buttons and hat mapped into the game, IL2 Forgotten Battles Pacific etc, but holding down A button and A shift together doesn't seem to take. What simple thing am I omitting or doing wrong?

I am running XP and have the stick installed as a 'typical' installation, without the extra software on the disc.

I have also downloaded the current drivers (29.75mb) and programming software (14.313) from Saitek site, but not activated them. I'll hold off until I get some advice.

Joystick great though, increases immersion and much steadier than my late Cyborg USB Gold (and Yes I know that has Shift buttons too, and No I didn't get round to making them work either).

To make use of the shift keys you need to create a joystick profile using the Saitek software.
