Hi all

 

just did a bit of playing around with Windows 7 / 64bit.

 

BS and FC look pretty fine, framerate is great and X52pro/TIR4 work also perfect - but:

 

I just cannot get my gameport pedals to be recognized :(

 

Anybody here know a way to get those gameport pedals to work under Win7/64 (or Vista64, I assume its the same issue) ?

 

Thanks, best regards,

-Axel-

yep, it sees the gameport and its OK (at least that's what stated in Device Mgr).

 

But it does not recognize the pedals and there is no ConfigPanel for manually setting up/ adding the pedals, as it was in WinXP.

 

Thanks,

Win7/32 too don't recognize gameport - at last in RC.

 

In spite of BU0836 to be a great option, a cheaper option to convert a gameport pedal to USB is to use the circuit USB of a 3 axes josytick, like Logitech Attack.

I don't recoment use these cheaper chinese stick like Trust, they have a expressive deadzone, and small travel in axis.

 

A how to:

Note - You don't need to use exactly the same used by Mr.Snomhf.

 

Edit - Or maybee a USB to gameport convert solve the problem:

These work for some stick/pedal but not for anothers.

Thanks for your helpful comment.

 

Actually I'm currently waiting for my USB-Gameport converter to arrive, hopefully this will solve the issue.

 

If not, I'll make my pedals to USB as Mr.Snomhf did :)

 

Thanks again,
