For those still using the excellent MS Strategic Commander device, Triax was kind enough to point me to someone who has worked hard to update the software for Vista, and x64 systems. I have sent an email to the author requesting that we be able to host/mirror his files in our downloads section, but for now, here is some info from Triax:


Hey, something got me thinking about the old Strategic Commander and went to find if their was a way to get it working on Vista and more importantly 64bit systems. I know MS dropped support a while back but turns out there is someone supporting it.

I mention this as i know a lot of us use to use it here and we still host a number of profiles for it.

The latest version is 1.3 found here

Thought maybe with our previous history we might want to host the new version and info on getting it up and running again.

The guy behind it is named BodyPrint over at vistax64, and posted about it here. It looks like he hasn't updated it in a while and doesn't have a dedicated site for information about its existence.

They dropped ALL Sidewinder support back when the original Xbox got popular so they could focus there. It was a big mistake, but at least the Vista community has stepped up support duty Wink
