How to calibrate joystick
« on: 15 February 2018, 00:17:29 »
Hi,

I now have the joystick I mentioned in my last post.

I plugged it in and it is installed but only the fire button works.

Does anyone know how to calibrate the joystick controls please?

TIA.

Hi barfly,

can you clarify "only the first button works".

Does it mean, only the button works, not the stick?

In Windows general or in SWOS online version?

Hi,

I have downloaded both versions of the game PC & Amiga from the site but the stick didnt work in either version. then i was directed to JoytoKey.

The stick and button all worked when using this program. Up down left right fire all fine.

But when I go in game, the menus i have to use the arrows because the stick doesnt work. but the fire button works to select.

On the pitch again fire button works to kick the ball but i cant control the player with the stick.

I hope i've explained clearly.

Which joystick is it? Normal USB?

Should work easily with these settings for PC DOS and Amiga version.

I've managed to get it to work!  ;D

There was a turbo button switched on the joystick that must have affected it.

Both PC and Amiga versions work now :)
