A Gameport to USB adaptor will not work with Suncom F-15 with or without the SFS Throttle. You have to obtain and install a PCI sound card that has a DB15 gameport. Creative AudigyLS cards work great, when these instructions are followed:

Other PCI sound cards work, but be careful of some OEM cards.

I have a Flagpoint Extra Joystick that wont recognise with vista


you'll have to buy a game port to usb converter, or a creative labs sound card with a game port. you are more likely to find the sound card. creative labs sound cards are more likely to be compatible with vista.

15 pin to USB adapter


Since it is old, it may be easier to install a 5.00 used PCI sound card (you may even have one laying around) and use its' 15 pin gameport connector.
CH Products used to sell a 'Gameport III' PCI card.
A simple PCI card which offered two 15 pin gameports.

Gamepad to usb adapters?


The adapter is out there. I happened upon one a while back, and got a nice joystick to work with it (win2k).

I can't seem to get my gamepad pro grip to work though. I think I may have bad controllers.

Error message on driver install


It's probably an old joystick. Maybe since its so old, the Xbox 360 won't recognize it.

When I bank right or left with joystick the screen Freezes


To check the joystick isn't the problem, go into control panel game controls, then check that the joystick appears and you can move the cross-hair around on screen, most modern joysticks are
auto-calibrating, but you could try running the calibration.

To check the game isn't a problem, unplug the joystick, then use the arrow keys to fly the plane, if it doesn't crash when you bank then it isn't the game.

I assume the game is Combat Flight Simulator 3, as very old games that were written for Windows 95,98,ME series often won't run on Windows NT,2000,XP,Vista as they are completely different versions of Windows. If this is actually Flight Simulator 3, you may need to consider buying a later version of Flight Simulator (FSX is the latest version, but may not run on your laptop).

Other things to try are updating the graphics card driver.

Norton shouldn't need deactivating, although it could cause problems if you're playing online.

Also remember that laptop graphics cards are never as powerful as desktop graphics, and games very rarely specifically support laptop graphics.

Hope this helps.

Joystick adaptors


I have been trying for a couple of years now.. The companies tech support had no solution either.As far as I know....you CAN"T. The BlackHawk is a Digital device and the USB Adapters are for Analog Gamepads and joysticks. I have tried it and it does not work.
Shortly after this joystick (My favorite of all times) came out everyone switched over to USB interface instead of using the midi/game port.
Either buy a Soundcard with a midi port or you will have to move on to another joystick. I have yet seen a pci card with just a gameport on it.. Good luck

i will buy both stick and throttle off of you..."if" the price is right. ;-)

Beowolff29(at symbol here to throw off spam bots)hotmail.com

anyway...this is old technology stuff...as it is non-USB and windows xp and other new windows don't like Suncom stuff too much. but it can be done. attach the Talon stick to the throttle via it's two plug in ends. you'll see how they plug into the back of the throttle. once that's done, attach a NON-USB keyboard (to make the stick and throttle programmable) into the back of the throttle via the backside of one of the plugs from the stick that you plugged in earlier.

go to Radio Shack or elsewhere and buy a Belkin or whatever "joystick port to USB converter" unit. the salesman should know exactly what it is. cheap...maybe 8 to 10 bucks. also while you are there, buy a big keyboard end to little keyboard end (not USB) end converter adaptor. maybe four of five bucks for this. it converts the really old (BIG) keyboard ends to the more 'normal' (SMALLER) keyboard ends that are usually on the back of your computer. okay, almost done.

plug the USB converter into the big joystick port plug that is attached to the split line that is coming out of the back of your throttle, it's only go on one way so should be easy to do. attach the 'now' USB converted plug end into a USB port on your computer. the "OTHER" end of the split 'throttle' cable end will have that BIG keyboard end on it...plug the BIG to LITTLE adaptor that you bought into that...and simply plug it into the back of your computer where a standard keyboard plugs in.

viola! you are done with that. you may have to monkey around with the switch on the USB adaptor to get the thing working right. it has several settings on the slider switch for different things. try one till you get the one that works best.

go into window's control panel and pull up your GAME CONTROLLERS program. it should now show USB ADAPTOR CONNECTED in the joystick window. configure as per usual and test. there may be some jerky stuff while configuring but keep trying till you get it like you want it. that's it. go in game and TRY it out. some adjustments (trial an error) may be needed, but it should now show up in game and with the keyboard attached, all buttons on both throttle and stick should now be programmable and useable.

not perfect, but it will work fairly well. remember, this is old technology and it is hard to get and keep it tuned into the newer working systems. you may occasionally lose your stick, and have to RE-CONFIGURE all over again. a small price to pay for a WONDERFUL, REALISTIC fighter stick! u can email me if you get into a jam.
