hi i ve just bought a game called Search and Rescue 2 . its like a helicoptor game.
Now i bought it from a car boot .only a £.:)
Problem is ,ive installed it,but when i come too play the game ,it doesnt tell u what controls or what too use on ure keyboard.Now ive tryded pressing all the letters etc on my k/board but nothing happens.
While i was at this car boot i also came across a Quick Shot Joystick (50p) Ive connected this too my pc via the lead at the back ,now how do i get this too work? if it does at all , that is .I like simulator games .but not been able too find a good 1 yet or free one,for me too try .
any help appreciated.
im using windows xp media centre. An would like too get this game going ,as it looks good.
:O) Swanny

Not sure about the game but if you have connected the joystick correctly go to Start-Control Panel-and double click on Game Controllers, from here you can use advanced to set up and calibrate your joystick.

was the game in a box or have you bought a pirate version of the game,if its a pirate then you only have yourself to blame.

ref joystick - if you have a usb enabled pc then old type joystick may not work.
ref game - have you explored the disc for "help me" files or something similar. finally if an oldish game try loading in compatability mode
