Ok. Now I understand.

It's a strange thread anyway, as it is a question about joystick, and then turns into a discussion about allegro. The title should be updated to reflect that.
Well, Allegro does support joystick and works on 64bit systems, so that's why I recommended.  Of course it depends in what vdijken wants to do (Allegro doesn't like to be mixed with some Lazarus libraries :().

Sorry for the SPAM. :-[

Probably a bit late, but it's strange nobody mentioned SDL.
I'm using it almost for a decade.

IMO most consistent APIs available for different platforms (and bitness of course, as it's open source),
it even includes force feedback (where it is supported).

There are multiple Pascal bindings.
