Description

Wing Commander III : Heart of the Tiger
Alternate Joystick Routines
---------------------------

+---------------------------------------------------------------+
| If you are experiencing lockups, bad calibration data, or any |
|  other problems concerning joystick calibration, you may want |
|        to give this alternate set of routines a try.          |
+---------------------------------------------------------------+

Included in this archive are two files :

    README.TXT    This file
    WC3JOY.DLL    The alternate joystick routines

This alternate joystick DLL (set of alternate routines) is 
being provided for users who are experiencing problems with 
Wing Commander III's initial joystick calibration phase 
during the install program. You must have a joystick to
use this patch.

NOTE :  THIS PATCH MAY NOT WORK FOR EVERYONE. If the current
        joystick routines work fine, DO NOT use this patch.


Installation
------------

1)  Disconnect your joystick.

2)  Type  "MD C:\WC3"  and press  [ENTER]. If the directory
    already exists, no harm done.
    
3)  Copy the WC3JOY.EXE file to your C:\WC3 directory.
    Type "COPY WC3JOY.EXE C:\WC3"  and press  [ENTER].

4)  Change to the C:\WC3 directory.
    Type "C:"  and press  [ENTER].
    Type "CD \WC3"  and press  [ENTER].

5)  Type "WC3JOY" and press [ENTER].

6)  The two files (README.TXT and WC3JOY.DLL) will be extracted.

7)  Reconnect your joystick.

8)  Run the Wing Commander III installation program with
    "WC3 -I". The message :

    "Loading Wing Commander III ......
     Alternate joystick DLL loaded."
    
    should appear. This shows the loading of the DLL was 
    successful. Recalibrate your joystick, and make sure all 
    settings are correct. 

8)  Whenever WC3 is now run, it will load the WC3JOY.DLL file 
    in the C:\WC3 directory. You do not need to run the
    installation program every time to use the patch, just
    use WC3. The patch loads automatically.
