    I've just found an internet connection where I can play my favorite all-time video game on my home computer: DEFENDER II !!!

    I have 2 old joysticks, but they are VERY sloppy.

    Are there any newer versions out there that are more 'crisp' that I can use for this game?

    Thanks in advance,

    the Captain

    Thanks, deking00, but I'm using an older Windows 95 computer and the joystick plug has 8-10 pins that plug into an orange outlet in the back.

    So we're talking OLD stuff here. USB ports were probably only a thought in someone's head. I think I used it on my Model 64.

    I threw away an old Microsoft one like that that cost approx $100 several years ago because it would not plug into my new computer. Replaced it with one costing $15 from WalMart.
