Yeah tried the joystick patch but no joy - get it!!
sorry... And dont appear to be any new driver updates for the usb joystick. Loaded Jedi Outcast game (just bought it) and that works fine with my new usb joystick so looks like I need to use my old serial joystick for DF2.
I suppose best to get PCI card with serial interface on it (15 pin) Did have one on my old sound card but my new one doesnt...bugger!!! Will let you know how I get on!
