    Game port sensors

    You know that RM Program that uses sensors that collect light and temperature?
    Wel..........the new xp boxes dont have game ports and was wondering if anyone has tried them using an USB Gameport convertor.
    They are only about 8quid or so and I found a supplier and link:

    But I really want to know if im wasting my time and money and if anyone else has been through this grief?

    Thanks in advace

    You could bung some cheap PCI soundcards in with MIDI ports.

    RM doesn't use COM ports for this? Not like RM to be awkward and not totally complient with all PC's is it?

    Hi - tried the sound card option but it keeps BSODing on me due to the poxy interrupts they use (and yes did disable the onboard ones!!!)
