HOTAS experiment

Does anyone have any success with making the old 15 pin game controllers work with Win7? I have the thrusmaster F16 TQS and Sidestick controller (15 pin). I know there is the TUSBA which is suppose to render the TQS usable, but nothing for the flight stick. All the forums have articles form back in 2005 or earlier. I want to know if anyone has had any success in 2016 with this. Please share your success!

He’s been modding old sticks for a very, very long time- he can probably point you in the right direction.

@Navynuke99, “a very very long time…” LOL thanks now, I feel old. Yes, I’ve converted from gameport to USB. I converted the Suncom throttle to a CH Products “ProThrottle”. Success? Well it works. The X and Y axis of the mini-joystick are used as the throttle axis input. I’d GLADLY share my prototype with CH Products in order for them to come out with SOMETHING new.
