I have upgraded to Windows 2000 Professional from Windows 98 2nd Ed. Under the old operating system, it recognized my joystick as a Thrustmaster X-Fighter. Windows 2000 doesn't list a name and I had to force it by choosing the 4-button w/POV selection. Some of my games won't recognize the joystick now. Is there a fix or do I just need to go a purchase a newer joystick?

W2K not a good game platform

by TheChas In reply to Thrustmaster

First, W2K is NOT a good OS for graphics games. It is designed as a business workstation OS. If you are a serious gamer, you would be better off going back to W98, or makeing the jump to XP.

As an alternative, try running Windows update. There may be an update that will improve the operation of your joystick.

I searched Thrustmasters site, and found no usefull information on your joystick.

Finally, you can often get more and quicker answers to technical questions if you post them in the Technical Q&A section rather than the Discussion center.

The chas is right because W2K is not such a strong gamers platform. You have obviously bought a top of the line FCS so now you wanna use it. I would suggest trying to find a patch somewhere. But the chas is also right in that you need to point these questions to the Technical Q&A forum. People will have more ideas there.
