Gameport adapter for CH Products Fighterstick and Pro Throttle

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,


I recently found a CH fighterstick and pro throttle for cheap, so I snatched it up but unfortunately, they were the gameport version. I found a Rockfire gameport to USB adapter and it said that it was analog ONLY. So would this work with the stick/throttle? I'm sort of confused with this analog/digital stuff.

The hardware (gamport and USB) are analog. It's when you get inside the computer that you will need a driver (analog to digital converter). Sadly there ain't no of those drivers available for any version of Windows. Put those $30 toward USB type hardware. Save yourself dissapointment and headaches.

That adapter has only one game port. You would have to buy two @ $60.00. They probably don't require a driver. The problem is they only support up to 4 axis and ONLY 4 buttons.


Both my USB Fighterstick and Pro Throttle both have a 3 way mode switch to triple the buttons when used with the CH Products software. So you could forget about using all the buttons on them.
