Wing Commander Armada(tm) Joystick Calibration Copyright: Origin System, Inc. 1994

This program will calibrate your joystick(s) for Wing Commander Armada(tm). This program will also calibrate the Thrustmaster Joystick and it's coolie-hat.

To calibrate your joystick, you must make sure that it's plugged in and the program tells you it's active. If the program tells you that the joystick is 'inactive' or that it's 'NOT AVAILABLE' then it probably is not compatible with Armada(tm).

If your joystick is valid, then move the joystick cursor around the box calibration square. When you're done, then 'fine tune' the joystick's center point so that it stays within the centered box.

(Calibration options: ENTER for normal, T for Thrustmaster or ESC to Quit)
