Additional Comments

Using a controller with an axis isnt possible for me. The moment you use any axis it sticks on and the game see's constant input on that axis until you quit battlefield. I tried with a Logitech Attack 3 joystick, a Logic3 PC Hurricane with usb to gameport adapter and I even have the same issue with the Dpad on the controller inside my Genius Navigator 365 mouse. Multiplayer games simply will not host and i will get thrown back to the multiplayer lobby or occasionally the game will start and say "waiting for players" but will not be visible to anybody else.
