Some question.

How to connect ??? must be use game port cable connect to potentiometers ?

You can connect potentiometers without Epic card. You just need a game port, some wiring and a DB15 connector.
Standart window game port alows you 4 axis joystick and some buttons. Buy a DB15 connectors to be soldering, a 100Kohm linear potentiometer, I'll can give you a picture that shows DB15 pins affectations. When it's done, you just have to declare a standart device in windows games controller option.

Pascal has an excellent example of our B747 Throttle Kit...
Ettore Mele has also done an excellent job with the kit on his sim. PC
