MS ForceFeedBack/SB with AWE32/Millennium ?

Hi !!

I´m about to buy the MS ForceFeedBack-Joystick

I´ve got some simple questions:
- I´ve got a Gigabyte HX motherboard, iP200, 96MB RAM,
SBAWE32 (8MB, legacy (non-plug&pray;)) and a Millennium 4MB, SCSI hardware. Will I encounter earlier mentioned slowdowns using FFBpro ?
- Is it possible to use FFB with NT 4.0 ?? (Are there direct input drivers for NT & FFB ?)
- Will the stick be useless while playing games in DOS (e.g. Wing Commander)?

The very first question is the most important since I heard that the combination AWE32+Matrox Millennium causes trouble -- is that true??

Hope someone can answer those questions quickly ...;)

Thank you very much...
Greetings, Thomas :)

In response to your first question, MS FFB will NOT work with NT 4.0.  It works with Windows 95 games ONLY.

In response to your second question, MS FFB will NOT work with "real mode" DOS games.  It works with Windows 95 games ONLY.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.  You may wish to check out the Microsoft Force Feedback Pro System Requirements page at http://www.microsoft.com/products/prodref/488_sys.htm for more information.

Good Luck!

Sorry!  Heh, It seemed like I was forgetting something there.  I'm not sure about a fix for it.  I would suggest checking out Creative Labs site at http://www.creaf.com for more information about compatibility issues.  It seems to me that there was some conflicting information regarding that issue though.  My guess would be that you would just have to give it a try and see if it works or not.  Good Luck!
