My System Specs

Default Old CH F16 Flightstick

I have an old (as in more than 10 years old) joystick It's a "F16 Flight Stick" by CH. It has not been used in eons but I just bought some flight games & a simiulator (Flight Gear, IL-2 Sturmovik: Cliffs of Dover and Warbirds Dogfights). BUT this CH Flightstick has a 15 pin gameport connector and my new PC does not have a port like that. I checked on ebay and I can order an adaptor - but a little on line research suggests that those $10 connections do not work on a flightstick - may work on a simple joy stick but not a flightstick?

Is there anyway I can hook this old stick onto my new system - or is this yet another trip to Memory - IF so what stick is recommended?
