Title: FreeSpace Joystick FAQ and Recommendations
Post by: deathspeed on March 17, 2016, 10:27:58 pm
Since there are so many joystick threads scattered around the HLP forums, I am attempting to gather some of the more common questions and issues in one place.  There is a good chance that someone else has experienced what you have, and it is covered below.

If you know of a thread I didn’t include but you would like to see included, please post it here.
