The joystick doesn't get recognised by the software by default. This is what you have to do to get it working...
1) Plug in the joystick and start up the game menu.
2) Load up any game and then Settings -> Joystick settings
3) In the drop down box for Joystick #2 select "Speedlink..." (most games expected the joystick to be plugged into port #2 back then).
4) Look in the bottom right hand corner of the window for the game and you will see two groups of 5 dots. Move the joystick and press a few buttons. The dots will light up according to the direction you are pushing the stick or the centre one if press fire.
You only have to do the above once and the stick will keep working across all other games.
