Hello. My Wico Boss joystick with 9 holes attached to a USB adapter won't work in WinVice 3.1. I don't know why. I changed the joystick settings a lot, but the 5 lights for each joystick won't light up at all. Any ideas why?

I am not a big fan of adapters, there are too many different configurations for the joysticks for every model to work right.  I assume the adapter is a nine pin serial DIN plug (the joystick) to USB.  Sometimes this requires an adjustment in the control panel on the USB controls to communicate properly.

Yes, the adapter is a cable connecting the 9 pin serial DIN plug (the joystick) to a USB port. I'll try adjusting the USB controls in the control panel like you said, and see if I can get it working. Thank you for your response.
