S! ALL !!
I have had to reinstall IL2. I did so both merged, and stand alone. I have tried to get my sidewinder force feedback 2 stick to work, but wont. In the commands, it will not see the stick move for ailerons, or rudder. In the game, I see them move, but when I start rolling, i just go in circles. Any ideas ?

Thank you,

make sure you do not have another controller or game pad assigned to ID1 in windows game controllers. Post back if the Sidewinder is ID 1 also

this is what i sent to Microsoft:
i fly "IL2 STURMOVIC FORGOTTEN BATTLES, PACIFIC FIGHTERS", in the game, I look at the aileron's, and they move, same with the rudder and elevator. When i start the engine, and try to taxi, the game does not recognise the stick movments. I try to manually set up the controller settings, & the game does not see the controller movement to apply the setting for that particular "control". I have tried my back-up, second controller, same as first. part numbers are different, s/n diff, also. Origonal stick p#, x08-58736, ser # 5873600040484. Second p#, x05-63776, ser #, 63776248801. These sticks worked fine two days ago. i run amd athlon 1800+, 768 ddr ram, cable internet conn, XP Home os.
