Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2
« on: May 17, 2020, 10:09:57 PM »

Hi,

Hope you guys are fine.

I just installed the game again.

My Joystick is the old Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2.

I was able to make it work on Windows 10 but no Force Feedback and the stick feels like a wet noodle. No center force.

Any ideas?

Many help!!

Just a few preliminary debug checks:
Make sure the stick is connected to AC power (the 2nd cable).
Make sure that the stick is the active one under "Setup/Input" ingame (Joystick #1-4).
Make sure that Force Feedback is enabled for your selected device.

... and be sure that the two diodes on the handle are clean.

If one of the diodes (above and below your fingers on the handle) is dirty, the stick cannot work properly.

You (like me) have one of the best sticks ever built! Too bad that Microsoft has stopped production.

Best regards,

Tks for the help guys.

Working so far.

Pitty the 5,6,7 and 8 buttons sometimes work sometimes don´t. And i dont have the hat for the views on the stick. Sometimes want to move the view and can´t lol.

I figure that open it no a good idea...

Anyway let me know what you think of the setting.
Button 1 and 2 . Guns.
3 and 4. decrease and increase power.
7 and 8 Flaps.
5 Toggle view
6 Back to center.

Tks!
