Can anyone give advice on Sidewinder setup? I'm trying to set up Longbow 2 and WCProphecy on my Sidewinder Precision Pro.  How, for example, do you configure the throttle for collective in Longbow?

I'm not familiar with these games, but can they be runned in Win95?
If so You can get the newest driver for it at Microsoft.
The driver comes with a program that let you configure the joystick and it is compatible with all the joysticks Microsoft has made...

Install sidewinder in Windows (the joystick comes with a disk).
Then you got to the Gamecontroll setup.
And choose the Sidwinder .....
Then Calibrate it.
When a w95 compatible game is runned in W95 it will automaticly find out what joystick you have..
In dos you can't use Sidewinder, you must use Flightstick PRO or CH PRO.
