Icon7 Solved: IL 2, Windows 10 and Sidewinder FFB 2 ?

Solved, see last post

I would like to play IL 2 (the old original one) in Windows 10, with the old MS Sidewinder FFB 2 USB stick.

I can install IL2 with all its bells, whistles, updates and patches, it works.

The MS FFB stick is recognized alright in Windows 10 pro, i can use all buttons, views, movements, twist and so on.

But FFB is not working. I can use the stick, but the force is too strong with this one, it is as if you push against a kilogram in all directions, and i have no means to get either FFB working, not can i reduce the force itself to less resistance. The automatic driver in Win 10 does not allow to adjust ffb or decrease the resistance forces.
Trying to adjust it from within IL2 does not work either. Same with MS Flight simulator X b.t.w. in WIn 10. Too strong resistance to use it.

Is there any solution for this. There are no good ffb sticks produced anymore, and the FFB 2 is really a very good one - Is there any driver, idea or workaround to get the stick adjusted, or even the ffb working in IL2 under Win 10? If, i would love to hear from you!

Thank you

P.S. ffb works alright in every aspect in e.g. Rise of Flight, or WOFF, in Win 10.
