Installing a joystick or other game controller

There are two ways to install game controllers, depending on whether you have a USB controller, or a game port controller. Consult the device manual to determine which type of device you have, and then click an option.

USB controller 

Game port controller 

You can add the same number of game port devices as there are physical game ports on your computer (most machines have one). However, USB devices only require open USB ports. Most computers with USB ports have at least two, and sometimes more.
