How do you use your gun while in a car, i.e. to shoot other cars? I defined
fire under "Vehicle Controls" as Rght Control. Back up is LMB. I aslo put
it back to the standard configuration. Nothing happens. I'm currently
trying to take out the limo with the preacher with the pimpmobile, but if I
can't shoot it, I can't see that I can win a ramming contest. Is there a
better way to do it if I can't shoot the vehicle?

As usual, any help would be appreciated.

you have to look to the side to be able to do a drive by, the default is Q
for left side or E for right side.

You can only shoot sideways if you look that way. There's buttons for "look
left" and "look right" in the keyboard configuration. Drive straight and
level with your target, hit the right key and start shooting .... or ramming
things :) 

On a bike you will shoot straight forward, so you'll have to get into your
target's 6 and start blasting.

All of that with micro/sub MG only, IIRC.

I didn't even try for a lot of missions in Vice City purely because of the
Plane/RC controls...

I've not hit the controls yet in the pc version, but on the PS2, the RC plane
was awful too. Only way to fly half the propeller planes on PS2 was in
first person view, otherwise you overshot and crashed to the ground... No
use for RC though, cos its useless...

Its a pity, because you get into lear jet (or whatever they are called in the
game), and its piss easy. Steer by mouse, take off...

I don't know who you have been talking to, but I've complained about
the idiotic save system since GTA1. I can understand it as a possible
necessity on previous-generation console hardware but there really is
no excuse on modern PCs.

There's been times when I've looked at my F22pro + TQS + rudder gathering
dust in the corner with melancholy. Bought a cable to plug it into my Audigy
even. Thing is, programming the stick is a nono on XP/2K, so I would have to
set up a virtual PC, running DOS or W98, to do that. I even tried that but
wasn't immediately successful, didn't want to fiddle around, got pissed off
and put the damn things back into the corner :( 

My simming days are over, I fear. Still got Falcon4 and LOMAC installed,
though, so who knows. One of these days I'm gonna take the time to do it
right.

Get the digital upgrade chip, start programming, and get back in the
air!

Sticky over at http://www.stickworks.com/ designed a full digital
replacement chip a few years ago that changed the F22/TQS buttons to
all digital signals (and pot reads). Made the F22 into the most rock
solid stable controller ever. He sold them until last year (he stopped
becasue the original Thrustmaster sticks were starting to get old and
worn out).... But you still might be able to get one on ebay or
somewhere.
