Joystick Interface - Macromedia Director Basics

Hello, I am currently trying to design a simple aircraft simulator interface using Director 8.5. It is simply a screen that will follow a joystick's movement. Director supports various scripts using either a mouse or a keyboard, but what about a joystick ? Does anyone have any experience or any ideas about doing this ? Can this interfacing be done within Director or must it be done outside using a Windows environment ? How would I go about doing this interface ? Any ideas or examples of existing simulator samples built with Director is greatly appreciated ! Thank you ! ...

    There is also an article on making a simple flight simulator on Director Online

    Hi there,

    I'm afraid I've ran into some problems again. The links gave me the idea of designing a 3D flight simulator, a lot more advanced than my initial plan. However, since the screen I'm simulating is a pilot's view of a pit which looks 2D complete with instruments that work, I've been unsuccessful in trying to figure out a way of converting that view into a 3D environment; e.g. a flight pit that can move around in a 3D environment from a first person point of view. Some hints on 3D programming within Director would be useful as well.

    Hope somebody can help me with this !

    Thanks
