i have an old ch flifgt stick can anyone tell me how to usr stick with an usb port? di i need a aptaper if so which one?
I have the same problem, but judging from all the research online, it's not really possible to use the old gameport stick with an usb adapter. Not in a way that it would work properly anyways. So I guess the solution would be to buy a new usb edition of the stick.
But if anyone out there disagrees, please inform us how to make it work. :)
Read boostev's post where he says
You can find it cheap but you will need to make the Gameport to USB converter. http://descentbb.net/viewtopic.php?t=15526
Once done its native digital mode can't be beaten in Windows 7 64 Bit
and follow the link to read what is said in the forum there and you will find that you can definitely make a converter to use your old joysticks, flightsticks, etc. with a USB port and they work quite well.
This was great news for me because I have an old one that I loved to use just for WC and Privateer/Righteous Fire. I am not impressed with most of the new joysticks because they seem flimsy and have most of the same flaws that drove me to buy the one I got. It has a well-weighted base so it doesn't move around and you can use it with either hand.
There were fancier sticks out there back then and they were expensive, but this one worked great for me. Now I can use it again.
