    Hi fellow Wing Commanders,

    Hope all is well!

    I have a really strange issue. I have a Logitech Extreme 3d Pro Joystick that works perfectly with Wing Commander 2 and Wing Commander 3 (Gog editions) but in Wing Commander 4 the only thing that works is the trigger.

    Calibration works perfectly but in flight the joystick won't move at all, nor do any of the other buttons function except the trigger (which fires the guns). I have the alt-O and pregame launch settings both on "joystick".

    Any idea how to fix this issue? I'd really like to use the stick to play this awesome game!

    Thanks for any help!

    Make sure you do not have any other USB game controlers or peripherals plugged in while trying to run the game. There's an ancient bug where if more than one controller or stick or combination is connected, the games get confused. Also, you'll wnat to go into your game controller settings in windows and make sure the stick you want to play with is set to the primary. I can't guarantee this is the exact issue you're running into but give it a shot and we can at least eliminate it as a possible culprit.
