Re: Sidewinder Force Feedback 2
If it helps at all, I have the old sidewinder precision 2 joystick and it
works. I want to say it will, just because it's a Microsoft joystick. I did
find an article that talked about problems you might see and it list vista
as an OS
When you use a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro joystick to play a
Microsoft Flight Simulator game on a Microsoft Windows 2000, Microsoft
Windows XP, or Windows Vista-based computer, you may experience one or more
of the following symptoms:
• The joystick may not work at all in the games listed in the "Applies to"
section. However, the joystick may still be recognized in the Game
Controller/Game Options window.
• The Enable check box for the joystick is selected in the games listed in
the "Applies to" section. However, it is unavailable (dimmed).
• The joystick may work in Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator: WWII Pacific
Theater. But you feel no forces through it in any of the other games listed.
• You may not feel force feedback effects during flight
