I just did a clean reinstall of Freespace 2 and the open stuff, and the game controller is not working in game. I've gone through other support discussions and tried their suggestions. It worked before the install; I did an install after using Knossos to install ASW, I could only play ASW. I uninstalled Knossos and went for a clean reinstall of everything.
Here's what I've done:
I made sure my controller is set as default for older games.
I selected the controlled from the menu in the wxlauncher
I tried a regedit fix, adding in current joystick, and playing with different values.
Does anyone know what's going on here?
