These pages describe how to get optimum performance with your particular joystick. As the joystick controls movement within the game, we recommend a premium joystick for the most effective killing.

The Assassin 3D is designed to work with any Analog PC-gameport joystick. As the joystick controls movement within the game, we recommend a premium joystick for the most effective killing.
The new Digital only joysticks will not work with the Assassin 3D. This includes the Microsoft Sidewinder Force joystick and the Microsoft Precision Pro.
If your joystick is one of the Keyboard emulating sticks you will need to configure it as a CH or TM compatable. You can still use the keyboard mapping but you should leave the trigger button as CH or TM so that you will be able to calibrate it in the DOS Games Configuration program and the Win95 joystick applett.
If your joystick does not have a Throttle or it does not have a Rudder, the Assassin 3D will simulate one for you. Make sure that you get to the top and bottom of all four boxes while calibrating in the win95 joystick applett. For more information, check out Calibrating in Windows 95.
Yes. Some customers are using the Assassin 3D with the keyboard and others are using the Assassin 3D with a serial trackball (the serial trackball controls movement and the Assassin 3D controls looking around).
Vince, something I've been doing for a while....Velcro the joystick (I use a CH Flightstick Pro) to the desktop. I use Velcro that has sticky stuff on one side and cut it to apply to the base..The Velcro "mate" goes on the desktop. It's very secure (over 2 yrs now), and you can remove the joystick when ever you want! This set up works fine for even berserker mode in quake..it only comes off if you REALLY lay into it. Maybe your customers could benefit from this info.
