You need to use the Saitek software to make the computer think that your joystick is another keyboard. You can do the same thing with the hat switch to make the computer think its a mouse (makes for very cool panning).

Install Saitek's SST programming software if you haven't already done so.

Start the profiler (intructions are contained in the manual downloadable from Saitek).

Set one of the two shift buttons to behave as a shift button.

Assign the keyboard commands for Weapon 1 and Weapon 2 to the unshifted and shifted states for the trigger.

Save the profile.

Load the profile.

Fly the game.

This is all covered in detail in Saiteks manual for the Evo and SST programming software.
