Saitek ST 290 Joystick Issue
« on: March 12, 2011, 08:07:37 PM »
Hi,
Just wondering if D3 will support a usb joystick? I've had this stick for a few years and never really used it. Having trouble trying to get it to work with Descent 3. I don't think I understand how to program it properly. I've gone into the config. settings....but a bit confused...Help anyone!

Good to know it's working. On my side i've tested with a USB 6 button sidewinder stick and it works fine, so D3 supports USB joystick with no issues.

I have this really expensive joystick that I got 10 years ago (I think) before I realized I don't have the kind of coordination I'd need to use it...
I refuse to throw it away even now because it was so expensive.

dxx supports USB sticks too, although I recall having some difficulty getting it to work at first.
