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:

Thanks so much for the reply. Awesome! Looking forward to getting the adapter and joystick. Will let you know how I get on and will get onto the Discord feature soon enough. Thanks again!  ;D

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
