Apologies in advance if i'm being completely stupid, but after a couple years of not playing XAU, I can no longer control ships using my Logitech Extreme 3D USB joystick. The stick is recognized by the Windows 10 control panel and in the Babu Frik configurator, but when I actually launch the game, it only takes input from my mouse and keyboard. It USED to work fine. The base game is the GOG version.

I noticed the same problem with the 1990s X-Wing Collection games, but the problem was fixed when I installed the latest Logitech drivers, but XAU still can't see that the joystick is there. Any help would be appreciated.

Check your ddraw configuration file and force off keyboard emulation there

Thanks. I wound up deleting the base game and then reinstalling everything from the ground up. Now my mouse and joystick play nicely together.
