Hi all,

I'm trying to get a flight sim to work and have run into a difficulty getting the Joystick to show up. I'm using PoL version 4.2.10 and have downloaded WINE version 3.2 with it. My system WINE version is 1.6.2 and the joystick is appears as a simple joystick/HID device.

The system WINE version appears to work, running "wine control" and then the joystick applet shows the joystick and I get full functionality but when I run the same applet from within PoL it doesn't detect anything.

Is there something I've missed / doing wrong?

Nevermind. Turns out this version of WINE no longer needs the DirectX libaries and removing them fixed the issue.
