I sent this to intercat support via email...

I am the owner of a Hammerhead FX SV-262, running on an AMD k6-3 400, 128MB of Ram, 20.4 GB HD. Windows 95a. DirectX 8 Installed Latest SV-262 Drivers, and a Turtle Beach Montego I A3d1.0 sound card with latest A3d reference drivers (no AMD optimized)

This joystick was working very very good until one day I decided to change my headset. When i unplugged the headset and plugged the new one, everything broke down. At that time I had DX7a and optimized reference A3d drivers. I had blue screens with IAIJOY.VXD as a culprit and the machine was not booting to windows at all. I had to rename the file to get back to windows. After hunting the net and searching for problems i read there was an issue with dx8 and the sv262 and that i neeeded new drivers. I dload the news drivers, same results, insestability, and what not. When I looked at the control panel game controllers section it showed me a 6 axis, 128 button gamepad!!!
(instead of the normal Hammerhead 3dfx) Needeless to say it was a mess..

I hesitantly dloaded and installedDX8 only to have the same results. After reinstalling the original Montego drivers and installing the regular latest reference drivers for a3d and dloading and installing the sv262 latest drivers *twice* I was able to gain stability and recognition of the gamepad in the control panel.

However, the analog sticks are miscalibrated. The cross is 1/4 away from the centerin the upper left corner (not touching the corner but half way to it). I unplugged and replugged the joystick and hit refresh many many times with the same results.

I am NOT the only one with this problem. If you look at this link


You will see people with similar problems (and different sound card, yikes!). I went as far as modifying the registry like the user suggested (hey i've been trying to fix this for 2 weeks!)
And it does not work...

So if you could please help me with this little problem :) I'll be more than grateful and will do a good word on mouth ;)
