    Smile Games for SideWinder Joystick?

    Hello. I just recently bought a Sidewinder USB joystick. I can use it in emulation, but it really shines on PC games with analog support, such as Doom95. I was wondering if there are any more PC games, abandonware or not, that I can use this comfortably with? maybe a flying shooter, or other simple FPS games? My computer is kind of old (dell PC from 2000...) so it can't handle much. I just wanted to see if there are any sugestions out there...

    Well, you can use it with the old Flight Simulators and the ever-green Tie Fighter, X-Wing and X-Wing vs Tie Fighter. I'm envying you, really.

    Thanks! It was $2.50 at Goodwill, and works just fine!

    Gee man, that's damn cheap. Nice one.
    To be honest I'd love trying Descent 2 with a joystick. A desire I never fulfilled. You can try that, Wing Commander and Privateer. I've got Freespace 2 from GOG, even though I haven't played it much.
