ACES-Complete Collector's Edition. Joystick problems

These programs simply won't recognize my joystick. Some months ago I found a patch for Red Baron (XBARON), which does great with that program, but I'm still unable to use stick for AOE, AOTP etc.

I know Sierra says use variable speed joystick, but what I have works fine on Flying Corps, MS Flt Sim. etc.

If you know of a fix, similar to the XBARON, I'd be grateful to hear about it.  Thanks much.

I listed this as a DOS game, since I run it in DOS thru
WIN95.  I have the same problem whether it's run that way,
or if I boot up in DOS...doesn't make any difference...I
have 48 meg RAM, so programs run great, just no joystick
except for Red Baron where I applied the "fix" referred to above.

What joystick are you trying to use?  And what is it plugged into, an i/o card or a sound card?  If it is a sound card, what brand?

I have the same problem, I have MS Sidewinder 3D Pro and it will not work. The reason it won't work is because the joystick port  is part of the sound card. I have got a respnose from Seirra saying that in order to run Aces with the joystick you will need to get a dedicated joystick card. (Seperate from your sound card).
