Hello,

I want to use the Gameport on a Diamond Flowers MF-100 Car (http://stason.org/TULARC/pc/io-cards/C-D/DIAMOND-FLOWER-INC-Multi-I-O-card-MF-100-MF-100-A.html)d. But no Joystick would recognized. Must I have some drivers to use the gameport?



System
IBM XT 5160
Joystick SVI Quickshot

As far as I know, simple joysticks (2 buttons and 2 axis?) doesn't need drivers on DOS. The joystick port is working? Perhaps you can use some test program to make sure of that... Would be a nice idea to test the joystick on another machine, maybe a broken wire is cutting your happiness.
