USB to 15 Pin Joystick Gameport Converter Adapter

I was looking for a way to use my old Thrustmaster Pro Flight Control System Joystick to play X-Wing and TIE Fighter on my Linux system using DOSBox.

The joystick is recognized by Linux and games running via DOSBox.

Here’s the joystick section of the DOSBox configuration file I use:

[joystick]
# auto, fcs, or 4axis causes the joystick to drift in TIE Fighter
joysticktype=2axis
# timed=false is required for TIE Fighter
timed=false
autofire=false
swap34=false
buttonwrap=false
