gameport not supported under XP

  [DELETED] 09:03 15 Nov 2003

I have a Logitech Wingman Extreme Digital joystick with a gameport connection. I have just upgraded to XP and find that this joystick cannot be used via the gameport. Do I have to buy a new USB joystick or can I get some sort of adapter for gameport to serial A (or even to USB - unlikely). The old gameport drivers won't work with XP by the way. If I have to buy a new joystick any advice, is force feedback worth the eextra cash?

Already downloaded and tried this XP driver madboy33. Still can't get recognition that any joystick is connected, which it is via the gameport on my soundcard.

Get the latest drivers for your soundcard, they should also include the gameport drivers.
