It seems that the back of my computer doesn't have the ports to plug in this old joystick that I have. What should I do?

Hi zestron! There might be an add-in card you can buy to get it working.

Post the make/model of your joystick - and if you can find the link to the webpage as well, it would be good.

All I can find about it:


Interact SV200 PC Mission Joystick

* 2 buttons
* Ambidextrous Design
* Super-strong suction cups for stability
* Requires gameport connection

And I know it has 15 pins.

that's a DB15 gameport cable...most computers now adays don't have gameports (for obvious reasons)

you'll need to look for a USB GamePort adapter (like this one http://sewelldirect....pter-4port.asp) to get it to work
