to our new gaming forum. Those of you who are gaming fans asked so nicely, and so often that we felt you deserved your reward. I'm sorry there was a rather puzzling revival of our earlier, 2002 Games room yesterday; it was a case of us getting carried away with enthusiasm, and one of us (probably me) pushed the wrong button.

Anyway, we're here now, in a brand new, shiny forum, so have fun, and don't forget to click on the link at the top of the page to see the downloads we've put together especially for you.

Thank you. A joystick it will be, but which one? There are an awful lot of them out there, and I want a good one.

Just found this except from a FSX review.
"You may scoff at using a joypad rather than a dedicated joystick, but the ability to use the right-thumbstick to look around really does aid special awareness and I've founding my landings improved immeasurably".
So it's just me thats useless then.LoL

I have GOT to disagree with mrwoowoo on this this is what you really need:

All this kit is UK available. You might want the yoke on it's own for starters, but you can add the pedals later if you wish.

It is the ONLY way to make it a Simulation as opposed to a game. Browse the sight...It's amazing what you can get.

The Logitech Extreme3D Pro is worth a try. I have used mine for a year now and no problems. With FSX it lets you get started with some early success on the simpler flying tasks-and is easily button programmable when you get into the hard stuff. Be sure and download update 1 from the MS FSX website but suggest you don't go further on download updates as I have found the next one a bit disruptive. Good luck!
