Having problems with your Microsoft SideWinder Force Feedback 2 Joystick ?

No force feedback only with Flight Sim. 2004

\015 Using Win XP Pro, my previously superbly working Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 goes limp as soon as Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 runs. The USB device is identified correctly and configured properly in the application settings. Except for the feedback it works fine. As soon as I exit the application, the feedback is again felt in the stick. This stick was practically made for this program, what am I doing wrong? And it is not the sound card creating a DMA conflict as MS help suggests; been there, done that.\015

Answers :

O-the sweet feel of a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback lets see if I can be of some help. there could be any number of things going on but I'm going to give this a try. have you checked the settings in Flight Simulator 2004 seems to me that I remember a check box that said disable force feedback make sure that is unchecked. also in the settings for your controller there is a box that says enable force feedback make sure that is checked. then make sure if you are using a firewall like zone alarm you are in gaming mode because this used to give me major headaches with my system to the point I had to detach from the internet and shut down my firewall to play my games. if this doesn't work you may have to reinstall the drivers for the sidewinder this is the last easy option and it should repair any broke links and reset itself into your system. Please let me know how this helped if you need more Ideas just contact me.

The Software I just bought a Sidewinder Force Feedback 2 joystick at a garage sale for so cheap it wasn't funny. I'm fairly certain it has some problem but until I can find the software for the thing I can't check it out. The microsoft website, oddly enough, has the software for the original force feedback stick that is for win 95/98. But there is no sign of the software for the new stick. Where can I get this software?
