SFIV for iPhone...stick possabilities?


#1

So this is a long shot and may turn into a running joke, but i’m kind of curious as to how one might be able to get a stick to work on an iphone.

It would presumably have to be bluetooth, but past that, I don’t have enough experience with either an iphone, or circuitry to be able to move forward with anything.

I’m sure others are curious as well so let this thread serve as a forum for brainstorming. I know there are some mad scientists out there who are considering the challenge.

** I know the concept is silly as a whole, but so is turning a “bop-it” into a stick, so we have proven time and again that practicality has no place here**

Anyone have any thoughts?

No outside controllers have been made for the Iphone yet. One company is currently working on an adaptor to add a dpad and some buttons but as we stand right now and for a while, it’s impossible.

Doesn’t the TvC stick use bluetooth? It wouldl take a lot of work to use it, but who knows?


#4

How about sticks with AXISdapters?

…I’m sorry but SF4 on IPhone is just wrong!

Honestly, as long as they can make it control well, it will make a decent iphone game. It may not be the full SF4 experience, but it will be a decent time waster (as pretty much all iPhone games are) I had SF2Turbo for my voyager, and all the right stuff was there, even combos, but it controlled like ass and got deleted a week or 2 after I bought it.

Also, I believe the TvC stick gets attached to the wiimote, so yes it uses bluetooth, but not by itself.

iphone and android phones don’t yet support HID USB devices

acutally if i recall there is a joypad addon of sorts for the iphone it was on engadget ages ago … im sure you could do something to that … i’ll post the link once found

edit : http://www.icontrolpad.com/ thats one im sure theres another

edit 2 : also i’d be up for having a go at this … im still very much a noob in stick building etc , but you gotta learn somehow lol:bgrin:
