If you can't get FS-WWI to recognize your joystick in the 1.6.x.x Patch, please do the following:
Open up the keyboard.inp file, located where the 1.6.x.x Patch is installed, in wordpad and find the lines:
inpThrottleAnalog = JoystickSlider1 : 0
;inpThrottleAnalog = JoystickAxisZ : 0
Once you find those, switch around the semicolons so it reads:
;inpThrottleAnalog = JoystickSlider1 : 0
inpThrottleAnalog = JoystickAxisZ : 0
When you have made those changes, save the file. Make sure you do not save the keyboard.inp file as a *.txt file or a word document! Yours may be the other way around; if so do the same only reversed. Also, launch the FSSDOEJoystick.exe program located where the 1.6.x.x Patch is installed. This will help you assign axis of your joystick.
To take over a gunner station, press F7 to cycle and F6 to take over.
