When running Wolfenstein 3D everything works fine up
until the options menu, then the joystick stops
working and the program no longer recognizes one is
Me too. Also Blake Stone. Joystick used to work fine, now doesn't show up. Works in dosbox.
Ok, try this: Go to control panel > printers and other hardware > game controllers. After you test and calibrate your joystick, press the advanced tab. It will ask you to "select the device to use with older programs". From the drop down menu, select your joystick.
This fixed mine. Hope it helps you...
