I connected a new MS Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 Joystick to my system. When I go to the Control Panel Menu, and attempt to highlight the box for key assignment, the box won't stay highlighted for any length of time. When the box does highlight (rarely), I always get the assignment "Joystick Button 4-ID2" when I left click the mouse to highlight the box. This happens each time I attempt to assign a key to a control and I can't get rid of the "Joystick Button 4-ID2" assignment because it appears each time I left click the box. I am unable to assign keys of choice. Any suggestions?

You probably have a key (Joystick button 4-ID2) that is stuck or in proximity to give repeated or continuous input. Identify the culprit button and fiddle with it to try to unstick it.

A stuck joystick/controller button. Do you have two controllers plugged in? I suspect you do or it wouldn't say ID2....

....a further point... if you have a stuck button it will show in the Windows Game Controllers utility. Select each controller you have and check the Properties for it. One of them will show a button stuck down.

Try running calibration software under
Start - Control Panel - Game Controllers
Select your joystick - properties - test - if a button hangs it will show http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Question: Did you back-up your files?
Answer: I didn't know they had a reverse...
