Iam using CH gameport pedals with CH USB throttle and Combatstick.
You just need to connect pedals to gameport joystick for Win2k OS to recognize them.

I suppose same goes for WinXp too. Not sure though.

WinXP Pro
X45 (obviously USB stick).
Ch pro pedals (gamport as ID2) going through a Radio Shack Gameport to USB converter.

Works great, can't use any CH Software. The toe brakes can be used for 'something' but do not yet.

Hope this helps.

I'm going to have to try the radio shack converter thing. I have an x45 and an old set of Gameport CH rudder pedals. I gave up trying to get my gameport pedals to work with the usb X45 so I have been using the 'rocker switch' rudder on the throttle of the X45. Guess its time to dig the rudder pedals out the the 'garage sale' bin.

Again, thanks for the idea
