    haven't tried it on later builds, as it's tedious to get a controller
    working at all once the setup fails and doesn't roll back correctly, but on
    5219 the driver and control panel software (version 4 I think) for my
    Sidewinder joystick refused to install.

    It has basic functionality with the generic drivers though of course, so I
    have left it at that

    Just a heads-up, in case it goes unnoticed, or is it fixed already in the
    latest build?

  3. Last time I heard of "Sidewinder" was in early 2000!

  4. Sidewinder Precision 2 works well on 5308 and 5270 with native drivers.
    No configuring or driver loading was necessary.
    Used successfully with FS 2004 on both Vista versions.

    What? I still have my MS Sidewinder (USB). I didn't use much it either.
    It's a good joystick.
