The story: I'm playing XWA at a friends house for the first time last month, get all exicited, and go out and buy a copy plus a MS Force Feedback 2 joystick. Happy happy. But when I try to play some practices flying in skirmish mode, the #1 button does not let me fire. Does anyone know anything about this and how to fix it?

The button does work outside of XWA, and I even put in a simple profile in the Sidewinder software, updated to xwa 2.02. I'm stuck! Thanks in advance...

Are you sure you programmed the #1 button to be "fire"?

May the Force screw you everything you do except sex or should you get screwed? Stop you're confusing me.

Go to the options screen (Escape)

Select "Controller Options"

Select "Re-map Joystick Buttons"

this *should* do it, unless you have a prorgraming feature for your stick. It might be improperly mapped out

Right - I finally figured it out. The all-important profile for the SW joystick is required to be identical to the in-game settings. You guys steered me in the right direction! Thanks!
