I've been looking into buying a Joystick now that I get a reasonable fps in FSX, so I was looking in the little manual thing that comes with the game and noticed they have a control layout for a joystick. Does anyone know what joystick this is (I know its probably a Microsoft one, but i've never looked into joysticks before so dont know any names etc...) and also if anyone has it, is it any good...if not what do you recommend?
I don't think a joystick affect's FPS or I did not know it did. Get the Saitex 52 if you want a joystick but I highly recomend a youke.
It doesnt affect FPS, i was just saying now that I get good FPS i've started playing the game alot more :p. Thanks for the reply, i've heard alot about the Saitek 52, and I may look into a Yoke, depending on the price :p
Also do you know if the X52 works in Vista?
Here are the Vista drivers for the X52 Pro.
The joystick in the manual is the Sidewinder, almost exactly the one I have. They don't make it any longer.
The only one that works well now is the USB not the game port one.
Ok, thanks for the info, i'll look into buying the X52 but I just suddenly had to pay £400 on an operation for my dog today, so I wont be getting it anytime soon 😞.
