I am running VDMSound-2.0.4-WinNT-i386.msi in Win XP Pro with SP-2. When I run Wolf 3D Joystick support works up until the options menu then drops off. The yellow light next to joystick is enabled until the options menu. I can use the joystick to select the next page from the start of the game all the way to the options menu then it drops off? Any suggestions? I've tried changing the A220 the I7 the J201 and nothing seems to work. The strange thing is I run DOS Box and had the same issue...
Ok, try this: go to control panel > printers and other hardware > game controllers.
After you install, calibrate and test your joystick, (if you haven't already) click on the advanced tab. It will ask you to "choose the device to use with older programs".
Choose your joystick from the drop down menu.
This fixed mine. Hope this helps you.
