The gameport throttle doesn't work under WinXP. You will be unable to program the buttons. Otherwise, I'm not sure if it works by itself without another joystick pluged in.

The buttons on the CH Throttle are useless unless programmed to keyboard functions. That is if you're talking about the same throttle. I have the CH Pro Throttle gameport version. It plugs into the joystick port and the keyboard port.

Ben: I haven't tested the throttle as a stand-alone device, but I will try it tonight. However, I want you to know that there is no reverse detent on this throttle. It just slides forward and back. If you want to have a reverse detent, I suggest you build a throttle. You can find the basic idea over at the other big flightsim website. The parts are not expensive, and I know this works, because that is what I did. You can have up to four buttons on the throttle, which you can program within FS2K2. I love mine, and you can build it for less than it will cost you to have my Pro Throttle shipped to you. K
