Default M1 TANK PLATOON II - joystick

Just dusted this off - cant find my manual.

Can anyone tell me how to activate my joystick for turret control ?

Using mouse as it defaulted to that on install.

Thanks !

Don

Good and exciting game in it's time, played it a lot myself, and even the original first part on Amiga where rounds took up to several seconds to reach their targets and you could see them moving through the air like a drone . But today, part II is hopelessly outdated. Good ol' Microprose stuff - gave me many hours of fun, and they knew what the term "manual" meant.

If you can afford it, try SBP. M1TP2 and SBP are galaxies apart.

You may find it useful to invest in a new USB joystick. Those run just fine in XP. If you still need help, I have the M1TP2 manual.

I've been dying to play this once again. But somehow my WinXp + Core 2 Duo + 8800 GTS doesn't seem to cope with it. Does anyone know how to run this on modern PCs ?

What a great game, only beaten all these years later by SBP. Let's hope the new Microprose consider this sequel material!!!
