    BF1942 and Joystick

    No matter what I have tried I cannot get the Joystick to work in BF1942. I have a Belkin Speedpad 50 and a Logitech joystick.

    I have the speedpad as device 16 and the joystick as device 1.
    I have tried to edit the Air.con file.
    nothing seems to work anyone else with this problem?

    I'm using an old microsoft sidewinder 3d pro in BF1942...no problems......when you go to controller setup in Bf1942(i have both demo and full version) are you using the second(blank)row of keys for your gamepad/joystk? I just right click(mouse) on the action i want to use....then hit button on joystk that i want to use. The blank area will then say Joystk 1,or axis 2....etc
    I only wish the tophat button(views) was supported.

    BF and Joystick

    I guess that is the problem. It is supposed to be that simple, yet I cannot figure it out.

    From what I understand the controller ID 1 is supposed to work with the game, yet no matter what the Nostromo controller takes over that one and the joystick is second.

    I really like the Speedpad, but to fly the planes the joystick would work better.

    I received one other suggestion I should have tried already and that is to un-hook the speedpad configure the joystick and then hook it back up.

    I think because the speedpad is USB and the Joystick is analog (SBLive) the USB gets priority.

    I will post back for others in this delima.

    Joystick as USB

    When I use the joystick as USB it works.

    But the Logitech software gives me a Blue Screen every other time I shut down or start up. Kinda Annoying.

    But it works and it is so much easier to fly with a joystick.
