Nah, dont buy stuff, if you can make things by yourself You would feel MORE satisfied of using it. - but its your choice!

hi!

hehe ... you are right ... but not everybody is a electronic-genius like you :D

And the second problem is that you can't get these self-builded adapters to work in Win2k ... because they all use the DirectPad Pro driver and they need Win9x.

I prefer my USB-Adapter ... you simply connect it to the USB-port and it works fine without extra drivers ... (this is maybe the only useful use of USB ... to connect a psx2pc adapter to it ;) )

strange...
I use my self build directpad on:
Linux (the easiest)
win2k (using a chinese driver)
win9x (using the directpadpro driver)

Hmm BeOS lacks directpad support...

OK.. may be being a bit optimistic here, but does anyone know where any of the above are available in the UK (or at least Europe), since payng £20 postage for a £10 adaptor makes my ears bleed!

jens:

you're kinda correct not everyone can build electronic devices. these adapters are some of the easiest things to build tho.

the 2nd problem is only if you build a direct pad pro adapter. you can build the usb adapter yourself as well (even with both PSX and N64 pad interfaces):

however this one requires programming the microcontroller (source code available, just need to assemble and upload it), or buying a preprogrammed chip.

I can do the electronics, I just don't fancy spending a small fortune on the chip programmer, when a ready built adaptor costs about £4 (without postage)... surely SOMEONE in the UK must be selling these things!?!?!

It doesnt take a jenius to build a PSX to PC controller ;) - But for a wide range of use, well, I guess good 'ol USB is the only way to do it.

As I said, it's your choice :cool:

hi!

lu_zero:

You got the DirectPad Pro drivers to work on Win2k ?
That's unbelievable for me ... because the orginal drivers doesn't work in Win2k.
Or do you have any Win2k drivers for it ? Where do you got them ?

haha, I would make one myself, but if you had ever seen me handling a soldier iron you would understand why I'd rather buy something :D

is chinese btw and doesn't support dualshock feature

anyway it works fine

the easyest OS to use directpad is linux because of the builtin support^^
