Hello all! First post here so let me briefly introduce myself: I have been playing fighting games for 15 years. My favorite is Virtua Fighter. The best pad ever is the Sega Saturn FIRST controller version. Wishlist Capcom vs SNK 3, SNK vs. Capcom 2 and Match of the Millenium 2 as well as a new Darkstalkers <3.
So I have been migrating from 360 to PS3 and want to make my arcade-in-a-box arcade stick work on the PS3. I would like to make a dual pcb to play what I already have on 360 and play future titles on the PS3. I wanted to recycle an old DualShock 2 controller to use the PCB but it isnt working. The DS2 is a transparent SCPH-10010 which is beign converted to USB with a RadioShack converter. It works flawlessly on PS3/PC.
Win 7 recognize the pad as a USB Joystick with XY Axis = L analog, ZZ Axis/Rotation R analog, point of view hat = dpad, plus all the buttons = 1 to 12.
I soldered the cables to the ribbon socket instead of the plastic where the buttons actually make contact to avoid clutter. The I followed the order but it doesnt seem to work. When shorting I just get analog, Select and start to work All the rest is dead. Any ideas or suggestions are highly welcome. Thanks for looking!!
