Ok.. Ok.. Will be downloading D3 tonight.. gonna order my MS 3D Pro.. but the problem is, can I get it working in Windows 7?

Not sure if I want to re-learn a new joystick..

I'm already going to have troubles trying to re-learn this Game again!! I forgot my old config!

If you have a gameport, it should work. Maybe install a soundblaster card if not... or there's a 3d-pro to USB converter out there that may help, not sure if it's still being made by Grendel or if someone else took up the project.

Gameport support for W7 is officially dead. The converter is DIY, easy to do tho. Last "production" was done by Kevin; AFAIK he's out of them, doesn't hurt to ask.

The converter boxes are awesome. They've worked for all versions of Windows I've used: XP, Vista and 7.
