Matt,Yes, it does, but it's not perfect. My yoke works much better with the patch, although the program doesn't seem to recognize all the hat switch positions. I haven't tried USB Overdrive (the shareware USB driver) yet, however - it now supports most input devices, so I suppose it could help.-Franklin------------------------------Franklin TesslerDP 800Fly! for Mac Co-moderator

Matt,I am using the Logitech Wingman Extreme running under OS 9.2.2 and OS 10.1.2 all works well except the slider and hat switch. I used the 2&3 buttons for the throttle.Mike

My Saitek Cyborg 3D Gold works fine with Fly II in OS 9. In OS X, each axis is shifted, and off centered. I just tried USB overdrive, but it makes the situation even worse; the game doesn't even recognise the joy stick. Until someone finds a fix, I 'll have to keeping flying in OS 9. regards,Mark

My frame rates are reminiscent of Fly! 2K on my old beige G3 266. With Fly II in OS 9, on a 15" FP iMac G4 800, I get 9-12 fps taking off, 10-14 clear of the airport, either viewing the plane or the cockpit. With the cockpit off, forward view, no significant scenery, (the best case scenario) I get about 19-24 fps. Basically usable, but not breathtaking. In OS X (10.2.4), I get about 1 or 2 fps less than OS 9. Usable but a bit slow. Mind you this is a great improvement on the early Fly II betas where movement (on a G3 500) just didn't happen. Hope that is helpful.Mark
