Hey tech gurus,
I’ve read all the stickies, watched all the FA videos and STILL have a question (or two).
I just finished up a 4Player cabinet/control panel. My plan is to use the control panel with both a PC (for HyperSpin) and a JTAG’d XBox360 (for modern fighters, shooters, etc).
I have four MadCatz FightPad PCBs that have been wired out to euro-style (screw-type) connectors.
My goal is to leave the controllers plugged into both the PC and XB360 (or a hub) and switch between the two without unplugging anything. In a perfect world, the PC will always be on - and once the XB360 fires up (the PC will send an IR signal) - the controller automatically switches. When the XB360 powers down (again, via IR), it switches back to PC.
I can’t figure out if I’m best served by using an IMP V2 or a PS360+. Also, I’m not sure if these will have an issue running more than one control PCB once they hit the PC/XB360.
I should also mention, if the MadCatz PCBs are an issue - I don’t necessarily have a problem scratching them using something different if it provides a cleaner/more reliable setup.
Ok, I’m sure there will be lots more questions. But let’s start here.
