I've purchased the original Operation Flashpoint from Good Old Games but am unable to set the keybindings for aircraft. Joystick controls it does recognise but in game joystick input isn't registered. Any attempt to set mouse/keyboard input as flight controls fails - input from these devices isn't even registered in the control panel even when joystick input is disabled.

My Joystick is a MS Sidewinder 2.
