I just bought a new precision 2 joystick ready for when i get a copy of fs2002 but i cannot get it to work. How hard can it be to install a joystick?!?! I run the install program as the instruction manual says, the software installs okay then it moves onto connection and testing. The screen says connect the joystick to the USB port - so I do. A grey windows box then appears saying 'detected new hardware precision 2 - windows is now intalling the software etc' once this happens i click next on the setup screen and i get 'Setup is unable to detirmine wether the joystick is connected blah blah'. WHY DO I GET THIS HORRIBLE MESSAGE?? I have tried both USB ports on my comuter - both with the same results. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling etc. The first time i installed the joystick i got as far as a promp to insert my windows 98 cd - then i got the blue screen because i removed the damn installation cd!! I thought microsoft of all people could make a simple install! I have also checked my device manager - all USB port working correctly and under game controllers the Precision 2 is listed. So why does it not work. I tried setting up the joystick manually using control panel. However the stick is not in the list and i cannot find the drivers on either the installation disk or the windows 98 disk. PLEASE HELP. Sorry for such a long boring complaint!
If anyone has the driver to send to me that would be useful.
