View Full Version : Please help me about X-45 and Cyber EVO joysticks.

I have recently acquired new PC, with of course new MBO. And this new MBO doesn't have gameport for joystick plug-in. Just bunch of USB's. And therefore my old joystick Genius F-31 is unusable http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif. I have not yet decided what joystick (X-45 or EVO) will I buy..http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

And here's the question: does all X-45s and Cyborg EVOs have USB connection, or some of them comes with the gameport connector?

Also if they come with different connectors, can some of you please write down the ISBN of the one that comes with USB connector.(I have the ASIN: B00005TOTG for X-45 from Amazon.com but don't know if this one is with USB connector).

This is very important, because if I buy joystick with gameport connector, it will be unusable to me.

Please help me. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks. No problem about english language; I myself am not very good at it either.

I have just read review of an X-45 (on one page that deals with games) and within "minimum system requirements" they claim that you must have USB. Good news for me http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I just hope they all come with USB so thus I cannot make a mistake. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Just in case you're not aware, there's a different rudder control for each stick. The Evo has a twist grip and the X-45 has a rocker on the throttle. I use the Evo which I like, but you get much more with the X-45. Both have USB.
