Can joystick controller be used on T530?

#1 Post by Bellerose21 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 2:08 pm

Hi,

I have been using ThinkPad T530 since 2013 and recently I bought Legion Y920. My daughter now uses the T530. She wants to use joystick controller in T530, can this joystick controller be used in T530? Or any other joystick controller can be used? Please give me a better idea as soon as you can. She does not want to wait, she wants to buy today, but I do not know whether it can be played any game on a very old machine.

Many Thanks.

Anything that's USB will probably work, unless it's a very old obscure one that does not have generic drivers for modern operating systems.
Current: X220 4291-4BG, T410 2537-R46, T60 1952-F76, T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G
Collectibles: T430s (IPS FHD + Classic Keyboard), X32 (IPS Screen)
Retired: X61 7673-V2V, A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad
Past: Z61t 9440-A23, T60 2623-D3U, X32 2884-M5U

So we can't install the generic driver on my T530? My OS is Windows 7 64 bit.

In the above dr_st post: unless = ausser (es sei denn)
But looking at that joystick, I think it's hardly meant for a laptop: http://www.elimec.co.il/eng/_Uploads/St ... esktop.pdf
