I have searched the Internet and there are many references to using "joysticks" with Minecraft. But go to them and they are all talking about xbox type controllers. I am asking about the type of joystick used with Flight Simulator and other such game. I pay on my PC but would like to find a USB Joystick that would work with Minecraft. If they can, is there any software required to specifically use that hardware?
Curious on why an XBox controller would not do the trick? Most game unless its flight simulator or a driving game, all pretty much use the same type of controller to play most games. WASD = Up, Down, Left, Right -- BA XY buttons. etc. Minecraft is not a complected game that you would need anything more than a simple XBox controller.
