Input devices

This game does not support joysticks, but does support the Gravis and Microsoft gamepad controllers.
The following are known issues in relation to these gamepad controllers:

  1. When using either a serial Gravis gamepad or Microsoft Sidewinder Pro gamepad, all gameplay keys will stop functioning. However, you will be able to perform all game related functions using the gamepad. Additionally, removing the gamepad while the game is running will NOT reactivate the keyboard. You will have to exit out of the game and restart with the gamepad removed to resume keyboard control. Keyboard control WILL remain active if you use a USB Gravis controller.
  2. Gamepad controller configurations cannot be changed in-game. You will need to use the controller configuration applications that came with your gamepad in order to remap gamepad controls.
  3. This game does not support the Microsoft Plug and Play gamepad because it does not have enough buttons to fully accommodate the controls.
  4. In some instances, the USB versions of the Microsoft Sidewinder gamepad do not work when used with the game.
