This is the official thread for Kei? console converters. Kei? is my new “brand” - as I develop more stuff I thought it might be a good idea to have one Kei? is pronounced KO, as in Knock Out.

Now with simplified description >_<
Currently there are two types of converter:
SAT>PSX: Saturn to Playstation/360
SNES>PSX: SNES to Playstation/360
Saturn and SNES to Supergun/NeoGeo are also in the works. Converters are available fully assembled and tested or as a kit.

Converts an ordinary digital Saturn gamepad into a digital Playstation pad. As well as being compatible with the Playstation 1/2 it is compatible with most other converters, allowing it to be used on Playstation 3, XBOX 360, Wii/GC etc.
It goes without saying that there is no lag.
An optional tournament mode disables the start button. See the manual for full details.
Button mappings for many popular games built in, ideal for vs. play where you don’t want to spend time re-configuring the game.
Start+A = Start
Start+B = Select
Start+C = PS Home (Start+Select+Up)
Custom button mapping
Choose your own button mapping. For example, Kyle requested the following:

Converts a SNES pad to a digital Playstation pad. As with the SAT>PSX it is compatible with converters so can also be used with PS3/360/Wii/GC etc. Again, no lag.
The converter also supports NES pads with suitable wiring. If people want NES versions I’ll see if I can find some connectors and make a few.
You can buy a converter from keio.dk right now.
SAT>PSX adapters are 20.
SNES>PSX adapters are 22.50
Shipping within the UK is 2.95, the rest of the world is 3.95.
I can also supply Playstation to 360 converters that are guaranteed 100% compatible and no lag for 7.50 each. For reference the one I recommend looks like this:
I have also tested with an Elecom JC-PS101USV (USB), a DC Connect 3-in-1 (Dreamcast) and a “no name” PSX+N64converter model KK-PC2004 (USB). I even tried a few no-name 360 converters (which all seem to be pretty much the same inside). All converters which support digital Playstation controllers should work.
Many thanks to zeetes for getting the whole thing started! Thanks also to all the beta testers, especially Truckasaurus.
