SERIOUS FRUSTRATION... with joystick sensitivitty & settings!!
I hope and pray SOMEONE can help!!!!!

I've been wrestling with trying to figure out "why" my joystick is EXTREMELY sensitive to any input for the alierons, rudder, and elevator axeses!!! I'm using a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 joystick, and it seems to be accepting all axes input information, as well as some button inputs.

It's almost virtually impossible to fly straight and level even with the realism setting set to "EASY"! Getting decent hits on enemy aircraft (in a quick mission) is also next to impossible?!

I've also "attempted" to set up my padlock view and both the padlock for "next enemy" and "previous enemy" on the joystick to no avail as well?! They show up on the game controls, but do not work when I press on of the set buttons for this. What am I doing wrong here?

The frustration is mounting quickly - to the point - I'm ready to through the CD in the trash and uninstall Steam! I've not even gotten into the game itself for missions, etc., to fully enjoy what this game has to offer, so I hope my frustratuions are somewhat founded.

Any help would be most GREATLY appreciated!

on the controls menu there are axis slider settings , try turning them down ,

To adjust joystick sensibility move the slider "Sensitivity" in Controls > Axis.
0 (left) mean 100% - 1 (right) mean 1% - so move the slider to right to reduce sensibility.

The "0" for 100 is probable due small window that cut numbers...

But, this "game" is simulator, the plane dont fly "straight and level" if trim is not set properly. :)

Padlock work OK, I just test now.
Look at Options > Realism if "No padlock" are NOT ticked.
Assign a key for "Padlock view" in Options > Controls > Keys > View.
This "lock" on the closest enemy plane, the range are limited, I think 2~3 km.
And set keys for others padlock function as you want.

IMO - This function more hinder than help, since make difficult to aim...
