I've just installed the game using wine. Unfortunately, after some spelunking in regedit, the joystick still doesn't work. I've added the string CurrentJoystick as a REG_DWORK and the value is 1 (hexadecimal). I never got the official launcher to work via wine, so basically, I've just run the game using wcsaga_sse2.exe. Even tried the value "2" in regedit but to no effect. Any ideas?
From what I've gathered, there are no drivers needed for this joystick (Logitech Extreme Pro 3d) as it is "HID", whatever that means... It worked splendidly while playing the prologue released several years ago.
altough this thread is already severeal years old; i also have the same problem;
in Wine itself, when i go to "control panel" and then "game controls" the joystick appears and can be testet.
but, when i enter wing commander via DOS prompt, the joystick is not detected.
i use wine 1.8-rc4
