Hello,
I was just wondering if there was a way to adjust stick deadzone and sensitivity. I couldn't find the option anywhere.
Thanks

There's no game option for this. Joysticks weren't so advanced back then and the game has limited choices.
Which is why the Joystick Configurator was made to try and make new sticks more usefull.

I believe you can try programs like Joystick Gremlin but I don't have any experience with it.

Even with that though there still an annoying in game dead area we've been unable to fix yet.

I'm using Joystick Gremlin with a CH Products HOTAS set up. I find I can fine tune deadzone and sensitivity by using the utilities response curves.

I highly endorse Ace's recommendation.
