    FU 1 - Your help needed - getting Joystick to work

    Hi Guys,

    I hope some of you still read this forum, I would greatly appreciate any help with this!

    I got Windows 7, and while I was lucky enough to be able to run Flight Unlimited(1) on the machine with no issue - I simply can't get the joystick to work. the joystick itself is working fine on the computer game controller settings.

    I have also the DOS version of FU which I run via "DosBox" - the joystick works great in that (but very low FPS so can't really enjoy the game)


    I have tried to edit/copy the flite.cfg from the Dos to the PC version in the hope to get the joystick to work - but no luck. It is like the game does not recognize any joystick which is connected to the computer.

    Any ideas?


    Many thanks!!

    Is that "computer game controller settings" within FU1, or something in Windows? (I haven't run FU1 for a very long time, so I don't recall its config options; and I haven't run Windows at all since XP).

    I'm afraid I haven't a clue how the Windows version of the game implemented joystick support, but if it relied on the joystick being plugged into an RS232 serial port then that's a non-starter for any modern hardware.

    Sorry I can't help more. I hope it's something which can be made to work.

    Still here but I am not too helpful I am afraid.

    Last time I played FU1 (2008), I ran it in XP client in VMWare. I still got that image by the way. I got all the manovres accepted by the instructor (even the rolling turn) so I kept it :-)

    Like Shadowcat I am sorry I can't help.
