Hi, i just purchased this Logitech usb gamepad and as soon as i plugged it into my laptop windows seems to have picked it up and told me after a couple of seconds that my new device has been installed ok. I went to the control panel and in game controllers, its there and the buttons work when i perform the test...When i load RTCW the controller wont work and only my mouse will... Can someone please help me figure out how i can set the controller to work for RTCW? Thanks so much in advance for taking the time to read this!

The game does not support Joystick or Gamepads, but there is a small way to enable it, although it is not guaranteed that it will fully work.

How do I use a Joystick or GamePad in RtCW?

Since there is no way to activate the joystick from the menu system you will have to enable joystick support from the console.

1) While in the game, press the Tilde " ~ " key to bring the console down.

2) Type the following in to the console:

/in_joystick 1 (Press the Enter key)

3) Quit the game and restart it. Once the game is restarted you will have joystick support.

Pure, thanks for the reply...Ok, there seems to be a problem or im doing something wrong! I followed the directions as you posted and it actually gave me a confirmation that the joystick will be in effect once i restart the game. I wasnt sure if that meant just the server or the whole game. Either way, i did both but when i come back in and join a server the joystick still will not move, just the mouse...Do i have to change anything in the menu when i restart it? Do i need to disconnect the mouse??? Im not sure where im going wrong but i just cant get it to work! :(
