RB pie with Kade inside arcade stick?
« on: February 07, 2017, 07:17:59 pm »
I have a custom made arcade stick i made a few years back with a Kade inside of it.  I'm now wanting to put a raspberry pie inside of it with emulation station.  What is the best way around this?  Can i plug the kade into the pie?  Do i have to program the kade to something the RBpie can see?  Thx

I haven't tested with a RasPi, but it should work fine because IIRC Jon wrote the KADE keyboard and joystick firmwares to be USB/HID compliant.

The Pi sees the Kade as a keyboard.  Nothing more or less, so no issues at all.

What's the purpose of an external USB cable?

You should be able to fit the RasPi and KADE inside the stick enclosure.

That leaves two external connections: power and HDMI.

Sorry to bring it up again :)  I want to be able to keep it as just a stick too if possible for 2 player SSF5 at friends house.  Is it possible to switch between those 2 modes?

Here is my idea for that.

1st get a usb splitter


Connect the kade to this (its usb out right?) In the female end. Plug one of the male ends into the pi. Then get a usb extension  and plug the female end into the other male end of the splitter for your usb out. Idk it might work

Nothing to be sorry about, you're just exploring options.   ;D

I think it's possible, but it might get a little cramped inside the case if thomas_surles' splitter idea doesn't work (Will applying power from other computer's USB to the RasPi USB port through the splitter cause a problem with the RasPi?  :dunno ) and you have to go with a switch like this, this, or this.

It sounds like you're looking for a setup like this:

---------------------------------- Contained inside the case -|-Could be either-|-External connections   

                                                                _______________ Power supply __ Electrical outlet    (Barstick mode)
                                                               /
Controls __ KADE __ USB Switch __ RasPi __HDMI feedthru ______________ HDMI cable to TV  (Barstick mode)
                                         \
                                          \_______ Neutrik USB feedthru ______________ USB to computer  (Fightstick mode)

If you use a gamepad firmware, you shouldn't have any problems

If you use a keyboard firmware, you may want to install a "shift lock" button/rocker switch to change between P1 keys and P2 keys or you can set up your RasPi to use P2 keystrokes for P1 functions.

EDIT: Removed link to switch that wouldn't work for this.
