Volition Would Kill to Make FreeSpace 3

A lot of gamers would say they'd kill for a new installment in the FreeSpace series, and apparently developer Volition would kill to make that dream come true, according to NowGamer. Volition producer Jim Boone tells them: "There is a group of people that would commit murder to do that game. The biggest problem that we have isÖ oh man, that game is so beloved. I did a bunch of missions for both games and itís so dear to my heart I canít even tell you. The problem we had was Freescape [sic] 2 didnít sell as wellÖ" He shares his theory that in the days following QUAKE, more players turned to mouse controls, and fewer owned joysticks, and says he "feels like there's an opportunity" to make a space sim for console controllers, but he has "no data to support that."

Such bullshit how they killed the drivers for force feedback in WinXP.

~Looks at his MS Sidewinder Force Feedback stick, at Windows 7 installed on his box and the icons for FS1&2, I-War 2, Tachyon and Wing Commander (Project Vega) on his desktop~

No...no they didn't. That joystick kicks like a mule, especially in I-War.

Said what? I tried using it with Iwar2 on WinXP in 2001 and spent a couple of weeks doing research trying to get it working to no avail. I used it to fly choppers in BFV-BF2 but with no FF it was just too big to justify the amount of real estate it occupied on my desktop. According to MS it is not officially supported but I will quite happily pick it up from the storage locker if there is some workaround now.
