Question about Suncom Technologies SFS Combo Crate (8-1110-0002) Throttle
New computer has no game ports, only USB ports. Any hope for use of this system?
Erm, once you have the PCI soundcard, how are you supposed to fix it? I run a windows 8.1 laptop so i'm wondering what should I do to fix this problem.

Can the SFS throttle sysyem operate via a converted USB connector? Is the tech initials R.J. Bob from the original company Sumcom? He was always a great help for trouble shooting.Wish someone would make a throttle system as good as the SFS.

you could just buy a game port to USB adapter. As the Suncom Drivers don't work with XP or later Windows versions anyway the converted USB throttle and stick will be reconised as a standard howver many buttons device but the programability will be retained...if you can remember ow that is.
If you happen to retain the manual congrats they are like gold dust and worth a billionty pounds.

One option, provided you have a open PCI slot in your computer, would be to add a Sound Card that has a game port (DB15F -15 pin Female) connector. You probably have an on-board audio system, but not many new systems include the game port that was often standard on non surround sound audio cards.
Used PCI stereo line out/in + microphone-in can be had for around $10.
Depending on your sound output requirements or desires, you can simply turn off (disable in BIOS) your on-board audio and use just the PCI cards audio & game port connections, or configure your system to use both (with proper drivers installed for both). The add in card can be used only for the game port while the (probably better) on-board unit handles audio in/out functions.
Configure which one handles what in the 'control panel' - 'sounds and audio devices' and 'game controllers' properties configuration utilities. The on-board audio will probably be the best to use as they can be on a faster BUS than standard PCI and have more hardware acceleration features at higher BIT precision.
I have set up a bunch of systems like this since mfg.'s started making the cheaper 'USB-only' ported mainboards the heart of their systems. I expect I'll be doing more of them for some time too. ;)
Hope this helps you out and keeps your suncom useful.

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.
