How to connect Old Joystick to new PC:

 

Like this one:

Advanced Gravis Pro Joystick with 15 pin connector to USB port and all same kind of.

 

Because I DON'T like new USB joysticks. Too complex to use.

System specifications are really not needed here because new soundcards don't have that 15 pin connector.

You want to connect your old Gravis Pro Joystick via USB? There are a number of game port-to-USB adapters out there. Amazon would probably be the best place, or ebay. Just be careful with ebay!

Stay away from cheap adapters. You want to look for an active adapter like this. Only works for Windows XP to Windows 7.

Indeed. Be careful with cheap adapters, even well rated ones. There are a lot of knockoffs too, especially on ebay.
