usb gamepad problem
I realise this thread is a bit old now but I have a similar problem.
Some years ago I played DF2 and used a Logitech Thunderpad gameport controller no problem.
Now I have a computer running XP sp3 with no gameport, so bought a usb gamepad, which works fine in other games.
If I enable it, I am always looking at the floor and the mousewheel will bring the view up but it goes back down again as fast it went up!
If I disable the gamepad all is well.
I was thinking about getting a PCI soundcard with gameport and using my old gamepad, which worked well before but reading this thread has prompted me to re-consider.
It seems to me that there must somehow be a conflict between the gamepad and mouse, now the question is did he leave the usb controller plugged in whilst trying to use the old gamepad and gameport or is it a problem with DF2 in XP?
In which case there would be little point in getting a PCI card to use the old gamepad.
Perhaps using a utility to map the gamepad buttons to the keyboard would work? I'll try it.
