I've got a problem with my MS sidewinder FFB2 stick. The stick works and also the FF effects, except for the spring. So during flight I have no tension on elevator/ailerons. I
tried the tips in your link but with no difference for the spring tension. Now I found this:
This works but disables FF completely. No cannon shake etc. In the end it's at least better than having no spring tension at all, but I want to ask if one of you had the same problem and found a better solution?
