I got a game -MK4.
I have a 6-button gamepad.
Win98 only support 4-button gamepad.
There are no drivers when I brought this gamepad.

Amy,

No driver came with the gamepad?  What was the manufacturer of the gamepad?

Regards,

-Andy

Unless it's a Gravis or a M$ gamepad, buttons X and Y are probably throttle controls, and as such, NOT programmable and therefore NOT usable except by games written to support them.  I have a supposed 6-button CH Gamepad, and I've NEVER found a game that uses buttons X & Y.  I suspect you're in the same boat.

It's worth a shot!

gward...tried the CH drivers myself. They still don't activate the X&Y buttons for programmable use.  I'm a little annoyed that they didn't mention this on the BOX, but I guess I should have bought the Gravis. :(

gward...tried those drivers you poointed me to...they work! I successfully allocated buttons X & Y for functions in motoracer. Thanks for the tip.  If they dont work for amy926 and she doesn't give you points, I'll give them to you.

Thanks again.
