Help for a newbie
« on: 15 October 2017, 04:55:23 »
Hi all. Thanks in advance for anyone's time on this. Excited to get back into the game. I've got a PC running windows 10 and my thoughts were to buy an old quickjoy joystick (used to love them) and get a 15 pin to usb adapter. Looking for clarification if this is a good idea in terms of that combo actually working and being compatible? Any other tips for starting out would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again.

That's an excellent idea! And yes, it will work great!
Got a list of adapters here:

Just got my 15 pin adaptor and old quickshot joystick - wasn't reacting well in game so calibrated it through windows 10 - slight improvement but not great. The buttons were working and axis points were able to be calibrated - on a 3rd attempt to improve the calibration I seem to have the axis points perfect but the 2 buttons are all of a sudden not working - any ideas? Be odd to say that the joystick is old and perhaps it worked for a few moments and then the buttons died? Bought the joystick off ebay. Thanks for any help

Thanks @Playaveli

 I actually decided to take the joystick apart and found one of the wires had severed and presumably that wire led to the buttons - such a shame - I'll have to wait to get back into SWOS - just bought a new one off ebay BNIB - looking forward to playing my first game online and getting used to how everything works on here and online - all the best

Can you help with joystick calibration? Got a brand new quickshot warrior 5 joytsick using a superjoy box 7 15 pin to usb adaptor - calibrating through windows 10 but can't get it to calibrate well - seems to be up and right that is the issue - I can navigate to a game using the joystick no problem but when in game mode you cant control the players/game properly....
During calibration - when centered getting raw data x axis 128 and y axis 112 - but when moving the handles in complete circles I am not getting a match - the "+" symbol isnt flowing

Not having much luck getting back into the game  :'(

I believe I downloaded them through links on this website - in truth I can't recall that well. I have taken a screen grab showing both versions I have installed - hopefully the visual helps:

Thanks for your help.....

I don't get the SWOS ++ option to get to controls and calibrate in either version of the game I have?

Use this Version!

Thanks - I remember this version with the commentary - so good.............however sadly I have in game issues still - mainly with the right calibration - controlling the players is a nightmare - the joystick I got is brand new along with the 15 pin adapter - perhaps even though the joystick is brand new it's the problem or the adaptor? I can see there's some axis issues when trying to calibrate on windows 10. Any thoughts at all?

Thanks for all your help.
