A buddy of mine had a great idea for modding my SE Fightstick 360 to work with other consoles, but I have no idea how to actually wire it up (I was hoping you guys could help me out with that). The idea is to connect the buttons and joystick in the arcade stick to a parallel port or d-sub connector of some kind, and then have the female connector hanging out of the stick. Then, if I wanted the stick to work on Dreamcast, I could just take a Dreamcast controller and turn it into an adapter by wiring a male connector to the PCB that would plug into the female port on the SE FightStick. That way, the Dreamcast controller would be receiving inputs from the Fightstick instead of it’s own buttons, and since no converting is going on there would be zero lag. Is this a viable solution?
If anyone could point me towards instructions on how to wire that up and what parts I would need I’d GREATLY appreciate it! I’ve never done anything like this before. I know how to solder, but that’s about it.
