    Question Gameport adapter for CH Products Fighterstick and Pro Throttle

    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.

    Thanks,
    -TheAwesomeCobra

    P.S.

    Well, if you got the fighterstick and throttle for real cheap, then what's another $30 to see if it can do the job? Seems to be just what you need!

    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.
