    Hi all,

    I stumbled upon this on DealExtreme:

    http://www.dx.com/p/ps2-to-ps4-pc-controller-gamepad-joystick-converter-adapter-grey-393065#.Vce5b5P7vtQ

    Has anyone tried it ? How well/bad does it work ? Very interested to know since this would allow MC Cthulhu to work on PS4


    I bought one and got it in the mail today. I'll let people know if it works or not once I get the chance (Dont have a ps4 for myself yet)
    I'm gonna be testing with PS1 & PS2 controllers, and daisy chain Saturn controller to PS2 to PS4.

    Could you test it with a PS1 controller/ PCB as well? Very anxious to hear your report!

    I'll test what I got!

    Also theres this for those interested. Dunno anything about it just found it. Same shell as the aforementioned PS4 converter

    Is it the joystick, the buttons, or my execution? The world may never know. But it's proably the lag ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    I even quoted the part about you testing it with PS1 controllers.

    [facepalm]

    I got excited.

    Found this glowing review-

    Just need to hear if and how it works with PS1 controllers :)

    No worries man XD And awesome thanks for sharing! Glad to know it works!

    Mainly want to use the Saturn converter. if it's like the 360/ps3 converters that are similar,
    Just about anything with a ps1/ps2 controller end should work fine!

    I could've tested it out for you, but I sold my last digital PS1 Pad, never liked that controller. The converter is great, I like that when you press L3 and R3 together on the Dualshock 2 emulates the touchpad.

    Never liked the PS1 pad either. But my dual mod has a PS1 PCB in it.

    Also- haven't I seen you somewhere before? :D

    Sick! Also I'm tryin it out with PC. with the saturn converter and it works just fine.

    BUT A WORD OF WARNING:
    dont hit start and buttons at the same time. this will equal a button set to turbo (which button+start will turn it off). I was confused for a second while I was using it. you can tell its on by a red light on the converter.

    I love hitting start and mashing buttons between matches so I'll have to settle down on that but no big deal.

    How does this map buttons? Is there lag?

    I wanted to get the raphnet SNES to GC thing but he won't respond to my email request for additional button mapping.

    Got an issue with a xtokki device that has been driving me nuts.

    No matter which PS2 controller I use - it doesn't recognize the directional input unless its pressed really hard. And if I don't consistently hit it with the same pressure it will drop the input entirely.

    Any ideas on what I can do?

    Note: This doesn't happen with a PSX controller for some reason.

    Lets trouble shoot for a moment.

    First, what brand of PS2 pads were you using?

    This doesn't happen with a PSX controller for some reason.

    I think I know why, it depends on what PS2 controllers you been using.
    The Xtokki Device was intended for mostly all Digital Devices.
    A PS1/PS2 digital pad or fight pad and PS1/PS3 arcade sitcks have the best results with the Xtokki.
    The Xtokki does not like dealing with analog button presses that many PS2 buttons have.

    Using standard PS2 controllers. The previous xtokki device I had used worked great with same controllers. It unfortunately had an electrical problem via a faulty powered usb hub that shocked it :(

    A friend gifted me another Xtokki and I was thankful - however the Dpad problem was noticeable immediately. I wonder since the Xtokki I purchased was from Etokki and not X-Arcade if there was a version difference that coincides with the pressure sensitivity?

    I've sent a ticket to the folks at X-Arcade asking if they know of a solution.

    I got my PS2 to Xbox 360 adapter from X-Arcade as well. No issue with the d-pad when playing with a DualShock 2, yours might just be faulty.

    I was talking about the PSX/2 to PS4 converters. I plan on buying a gaming laptop and making it my main entertainment source. I 've had trouble with PS3 wired controllers and emulators on W7 thats why I was asking.

    Hey, I'm sorry if this has been asked already, but when I searched I didn't find anything ._.

    I've been wanting to get a Hitbox, and since I normally only play on the PS3 and PC, I was going to get the one that only works on those two platforms to save money (I'm poor and stuff T^T), but recently, I've been getting afraid of the idea of going to an event, and them only having 360 setups, and I'd end up not being able to use it. When I read the first posts, it didn't say anything about Hitboxes, so I'm not sure if any of the converters work for it, and the link to the PS2/3>360 is broken.

    Are 360 only events common at all? If so should I just wait an extra few weeks until I can afford the universal, or should I just get the PC/PS3 Hitbox and try to find some kind of converter/mod?

    BROOK Converters work well with HitBox PS3/PC ..
    And some guys to share

    On a side note:

    If you guys play pad or have a ps1/ps2 stick, this converter is under $10 US and the 360 mode works flawlessly with SFV and other games on PC.

    Hello everyone, first post in here

    I wanted to know what is the best saturn to PC converter.
    I have two mkII saturn pads here and I'd like to use them.

    I searched this forum a lot and saw many discussions on the subject, but I failed to find a consensus.
    Some saying that the Mayflash 3 in 1 is lagfree, others saying they had not-so-great experiences with the Mayflash.

    Has someone done a controller lag test with this converter and can provide the data?
    Does such a thing as a lag-free saturn to pc converter even exists?

    If not, then i'll go for a saturn usb controller. but since those are not cheap, I'd like to go for an adapter if a lag-free one exist.

    Thanks in advance everyone

    Ooohhh nice. This looks fairly recent. I take it this is lagless, or at least very close to being lagless?

    FinalBaton hey there I have been using the Mayflash Saturn to USB convertor on my PS4 and my PC to play USFIV with no problems in fact I find it easier to do a lot of combos with my Sega Saturn Controller as opposed to the Mortal Kombat Fight Pad that I also use.

    I got the SNES to PSX adapter, it works great, I even chain it to the Brook PS2 to PS4 adapter and use it on the PS4, the Snes pad is the only controller I can use to play GG XRD

    Hey @XxWOLFERxX ,

    #1 welcome to SRK, and especially to the Tech Talk forum. Lots of cool helpful people here... and @Darksakul .

    #2 There are no good Dreamcast to PS3 (or PC) adapters.

    #3 I have a spare MAS Super Pro stick PSX/PS2 PCB that you can just have if you want it :)

    #4 There are tons of great PSX/PS2 to PS3, PC, and even PS4 adapters out there. The Brook one is especially good.

    #5 If you ever decide to... SELL ME YOUR MAS STICK!!!

    For PC

    There's this

    You might want to email them and ask if it works on PS3 as well. You'll still a DualShock 3 to navigate the menu tho.

    Otherwise you can do a PCB swap. Plenty of 3rd party PS3 controllers and PCBs that would easily work.

    Hey @C-Sword , I would caution recommending this adapter unless you already know that this works for a MAS arcade stick.

    MAS PCB's, especially the Dreamcast one is notoriously finicky, so unless @XxWOLFERxX has a 1st party pad hack inside of his MAS arcade stick, I'm not sure the RaphNet adapter will work.

    Again just my $0.02, you are the pad/adapter guru here on SRK, and I defer to you for educate'tion. :pray: :pray: :pray:

    Yeah I forgot how finicky MAS system electronics can be.
    I would not call it a board, as later MAS system sticks lack a proper board, just a "dead bug circuit" scotch taped to the side of the case.

    Sup good people. I'm having a bit of a dilemma, maybe you guys can help me here.

    I'm looking at the Brook Super Converters and the CronusMax.

    I currently have a 360, PS3, XOne, PS4, and PC.

    I have a pair of TE sticks (360, Primary, one backup new in box) and a HRAP 4 (PS3). I'd like to be able to use any of them as I see fit on any platform I see fit.

    I do not play competitively; tournament legality is irrelevant to me.

    If I go the Brook route, I'm looking at:

    1x PS3/PS4 --> XOne
    1x 360/One --> XOne
    1x 360/One --> PS4
    1x PS3/PS4 --> PS3/PS4

    Or about $175 worth of converters if I want to have the compatibility I'd like to have. If I go the Cronus route, I'd just need their standard $60 offering. So the question is: would you all still recommend I go the Brook route?

    I considered the Universal Fighting Board, but having to buy 2x of those feels excessive since it's just for me and I feel the dongles offer maaaaaybe a bit more flexibility. But not sure. I'd need to grab about $10 worth of wire and a USB cable. Could be a fun project, but again...idk.

    Thoughts? (sorry if babbling)

    Has anyone tried this converter as I can't find any info about it on the net. Just ordered it so chancing that it works ok;

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00FBM3NRE/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1496589507&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=ps2+converter+xbox&dpPl=1&dpID=41YjN5UO8-L&ref=plSrch

    I'm mainly wanting it for the ps2 to gamecube which I'd mainly use for my wii (although it doesn't state wii compatible) :/

    And on the 3rd pic what is the controller port it looks familiar?

    I've had a Mayflash ps2 to gamecube for years and never had any issues with that converter.

    Question about the general concept of Controller Converters vs pad hacking: I've gone to thrift stores and picked up used controllers for lots of different systems over the years. I have found controllers from everything from the 2600 to the 360. I was planning on saving one of each for an ambidextrous fight stick in street fighter style. For the purposes of a) using factory authorized parts and not violating warrantees, (even though most of these systems are well beyond warrantees anyway) and b) input lag noticeable on a CRT TV, is wiring a "naked" controller where one wire equals one input, and making some sort of bulk connector where one pin equals one input, and then optionally having an intermediate device for button swapping for a few quirky games, and then finally the bulk connector is lead to and soldered on to the actuators of the actual d-pad and buttons, better than buying adapters? In more cases is it cheaper to find these controllers working at a Goodwill, then to hire someone to pad hack and sacrifice the pad than it is to sell the factory authorized pad and buy an adapter from brand x where there may or may not be incompatibilities and lag?

    Just out of curiosity, is anyone willing to take this job? $200 starting deposit, I provide the actual joystick and joypads to be pad hacked shipped to you? Not necessarily a rush job, (I've waited 25 years since I last beat my famous gaming friend that consistently, zophar321, with my junk right handed stick in SSF2NC , what's a few months more) Just 5 other things need to be done.

    1) a joystick extender was not installed and the controllers feel clunky at the corners. I got the piece. Can you add it in to make it function right?
    2) both a left hand stick port and a right hand stick port so for 90% of the games the left buttons horizontally mirror the right butons, the josytick is flipped and set for "Street Fighter arrangement"
    3) for those 10% of games that a) don't have button reassigning, and b) need button reassigning when swapped to the right hand stick or for other reasons, a little box that can have some easily replaceable standard, like RCA cables, where where you lead one RCA cable from and to dictates its function in said game. Also important is that buttons equal sticks and vice versa to play Pac-Land on PS1 and Namco Pac-Man Museum 360, and games like Track N Field and The Activision Decathlon? (also if it's weak, maybe a AA or AAA battery compartment to boost the signal if it saves repeated soldering would make me pound and penny wise.) Not a quick connect standard, that breaks too much from repeated swapping of buttons. RCA should be good and plentiful. Stays on when you want, comes off when you want.
    4) a little attachment on the outside of the buttons where I can stick a second joystick for twin-stick shooters or a controller with a numeric keypad, (5200, Colecovision, Intellivision, Jaguar) where I insert the original controller and operate the keypad and use overlays if necessaary, and on the Super Action controller, use the roller wheel.
    5) Since I have 4 Astrocade controllers,the maximum needed, and no desire to actually purchase a fifth, I heard a simple "pin swap" adpater with DB9 on both ends, one male, one female, can be used to accept an Atari 2600 joystick, and possibly certain higher derivatives, like the 7800, SMS, and Genesis. I don't need the analog paddle in games I wat to use with an arcade stick.

    I have these controllers I'm looking for someone to work with:
    -PS2 DS2
    -Xbox Duke
    -GameCube
    -Dreamcast (make sure to preserve the VMU slots)
    -3DO (make sure to preserve the daisy chaining ability)
    -Jaguar (I heard you could make a Jaguar Pro stick by mapping your joystick buttons to keys 1, 3, 4, 5, and 6 without disassembling an actual pro controller)
    -An already pad-hack ready Xbox 360 wired controller. (meaning it was disassembled for an Xbox 360 version of the joystick, but the original maker somehow didn't get my instructions. I wanted button programming and system selection to be independent. What I got was, if I were to have added a new PCB, I would have had to detach the PCM one input at a time and reattach one input at a time, and with quick connects would have been unmanageable, and also the spaghetti wires made it not very user-friendly in telling what wire was what. and the labels fell off, making my Xbox 360 era joystick worthless without risking a misconnect and possible damage.)
    -Wii Classic controller
    -A couple of broken Xbox One controllers, (one where the analog range is short in one direction, and I found out by trying to play Inside and I couldn't swim fast enough until I changed controllers, the other one has a trigger that feels locked and not seated right, but the actuator might work. Both sound like good candidates for them to be redeemed into a Fight Stick Hack Joypad Whichever one cannot be saved as a real Xbox One controllers will be the candidate.)
    - Saturn Digital
    - N64
    - SNES
    - Genesis 6-button
    - (if I find out any games I have won't work for the 6,) Genesis 3-button
    - Turbo Grafx 16
    - NES
    - (If the 6 button Genesis pad cannot be used for this,) Master System (and no, a real Master System with Snail Maze, not the Power Base Converter for Genesis.)
    - 7800
    - 5200 (I know the 5200 is a native analog control, I just need it to actuate directions digitally so I can play any non-analog-specific games)
    - Colecovision Super Action (4 games I have won't work for the standard CV)
    - Colecovision Standard (2 joystick games I have won't work for the Super Actions)
    - Intellivision (asking for personal opinion, most games work well with the 8 or 4 way stick. Is there any game which will either lose something or a lot by not making a separate 16-way fight stick, yet is better with a special 16 way srtick instead of the disc? I predict the answer is, "Any game where you need the 16 way is probably not good with a stick." But I may be wrong)
    - (If the atari-> bally converter works with NONE OF THESE: a 7800, Master System, or Genesis 6 or 3 button) a real 2600 stick, just so the Astrocade works. I know I can use any of those with 2600 safely, not so sure about the Bally.)

    I don't have one yet, but it's as easy as going to Gamestop, a Hori Nintendo-authorized Switch wired USB game pad to be hacked for Street Fighter.

    By the way, I can steadily add $25-50 a month so if the price is more, just hold on to some of the parts until I pay. I've waited 25 years since I beat Zophar321, I can wait a few more months

    By the way, this is a backup plan if Matthew Gummo is too busy. I heard he's the best guy for a wiring job like this is and is less about the artistry of personal fight sticks.

    This is the stick you're working on to make ambidextrous. I designed it to be straightforward:
