4. When using the game Flanker 2.5, the joystick disappears from my gameing devices and makes me crash. Prior to the X36 going away, the computer pauses, the mouse pointer comes up in front of the cockpit, the game stutters and then I completely lose control of the aircraft, (Yes Crashing and Burning)
Response: Tried to reinstall, Flanker 2.5, Used my Son's New Microsoft Controller, Reinstalled SGE 3.0Beta
Temp Fix: Only thing that can get it back is to exit the game, run Nuke USB and reboot the computer or unplug and plug in the X36.

OK Well here is another weird, problem. OK I have an Athalon 1.4, with an MSI K7T 266 Pro-R (onboard Raid) I am not using the Raid right now. GeForce 3 Card. The motherboard does have on board AC97 Sound and game controller. (All system checks on the game controller seems to work.) ATA100 7200rpm, HDD's and Windows 98se and DX 8.0a(on my gaming drive) Here are the concurrent problems I am having and what I have done.

1. 2-3 Second Lag Response time for input into games from controller
Response: Tried to use the MS patch, found on Ron Hunts FAQ.
Temp Fix: Only thing that fixes it, is a reboot, sometimes 2-3 reboots before I can get it to work properly.
2. Dials not calibrating to center.
Response: Reloaded SGE 3.0Beta got dials to recenter, almost... Not quite in the center yet, but almost there.
Temp Fix: Put Dials to Digital and quit using them. (Man that sucks, because they are very helpful in radar and hsi ranges, antennae etc.)
3. Cannot get the computer to see the X36 through the game port.
Response: Reloaded SGE, Unplugged and used NUKE USB, Tried to force X36 into profiles, but would not recognize it.
Temp Fix: Kept it on USB (Where I am having the problems.)
OK So now that you have the half of it. Here is my deduction. There is something seriously wrong with this picture. Most of my other games work fine, for a while, but then do the 2-3 second delay etc. This is telling me that there is a problem with the USB interface, there has to be, but that does not explain not being a able to get the Game Port to recognize the game controller.

Any Ideas would be very helpful.

Sulhelka-Ronin,

That's some problem!

Sounds like a conflict between devices alright, then again, it could be something as simple as CPU overheating.

Then again . . . again, you have that RAID configuration which is a complete nuther kettle of fish altogether . . . hmmm. I have no cut-and-dried solutions but I have a suggestion or two.

First, let's see if anyone else here has any solutions. I'll try to get Groucho and Viking1 in here to help too.

Second, since this sounds like a fairly heavy-duty hardware issue, I suggest you register on the Voodoopc.com "Mutthaboards" forum and post your question there--When it comes to PC hardware, those folks are about the brainiest.

But, hold the phone, you say this only happens in Flanker 2.x? All your other games run fine?
