Do they show up in Device Manager with a yellow exclamation mark against them? You've installed the drivers for them, right?

Page 16 of the manual. Apparently the game forum also has instructions but you have to register to view the technical parts. I haven't got the dame but I suggest that you go into options and configure controls. You have to select what you want to do and then click or move the appropriate part of the joystick. It is usual to have to configure the controls.

The manual is usually on the game cd.

You might need to calibrate the controller. Pressing the CTRL + SHIFT keys when clicking on properties brings up the settings tab, from here.

rdave13 - I found the game manual online and it indicates that the game is set up to use with keyboard and mouse and you have to change the input commands for the use with a joystick. It would seem that ponytail hasn't done this.
