Advice on joysticks

Post by Filgueiras » Thu Aug 06, 2020 5:09 pm

People,

Against all previous advices, I updated my windows to w 10, and my PXN joystick stopped working. I did that because long ago, I've been able to use the hardware with windows 10. But, for some reason, I went back to windows 7 - till now.
I searched the forum, found lots about joysticks, so may that I am unable to draw the bottom line. So, help me, please.

I intend to buy a low end joystick, and I found some offers: Logitech, Thrustmaster, CH. What to buy, to avoid wasting time and money?

My plan B is going back to windows 7, but this will lock this computer exclusively to Condor ( and a few other applications )

Thanks,

Buy an old but functional Microsoft FFB2. It is still the best stick available.

For sure!!! I've read somewhere - can't find again - Chris Wedgwood's confirmation that Condor Sim has been built *around* this stick :mrgreen:

I'm not used to buy used things in the net but, following your suggestion, I found one near me, surprisingly available in 2 days. So I'll manage to buy it.

Thanks,
