Eivind Brendryen's Span Fix for MS SideWinder Precision Pro
If you are using the twist without this patch, you most likely don't have
full speed movement on that axis. Just define a key on the keyboard for that movement, and
compare! If your twist doesn't work at all, it may be disabled because of the span
problem. Supports -
Descent 1.0, 1.4, 1.4a, 1.5, 1.6 -
Descent 2, D2_3dfx 1.06b (Release 10) -
but I think it'll work on any descent executable.
You will need msvbvm50.dll in the windows/system directory, and i guess you also need
cmdlg32.ocx. One possibility is to install the Descent
Manager DLLPAK, if you didn't already.
