I've got Descent 3 v1.5 beta installed on all of my systems, and I've got a Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback Pro that works perfectly with Freespace, Freespace 2, and other games on each rig. But for the life of me, I cannot seem to get D3's setup program to allow me to check the force feedback function despite it recognizing the joystick properly. I'm using SW 4.0 software for the joystick under Win95 and Win98SE, so no issues there. Tried giving Win2K a shot with its native joystick drivers, but no luck there either. I saw one thread elsewhere that mentioned this issue under Vista back in 2008, but no fix and nothing else of the kind, especially for native OS.
Anyone know of a fix? Or a force-feedback joystick that's confirmed to work with D3? I did own a Logitech Wingman Force 3D for a number of years before the potentiometers all bit the dust, and I recall it too didn't work with D3.
