  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
I'm so happy right now I started looking into adapters to get my wheel working on other adapters especially Xbox One. I was also interested in PS3 but thought there's no way this wheel meant for 360 is going to work on my PS3. Well I actually already have an adapter that is $20 Mayflash Magic NS I thought it was just for Switch but theres an option for PS3 and the wheel works perfectly just played Gran Turismo 6. The only bad thing is most of the games on PS2/PS3 want to use X for gas and the default controls for my wheel is R2 for gas so you have to remap the buttons and some games don't have that option but Gran Turismo 6 did. I also may buy a different adapter to make it work on Xbox One. If anyone is interested here are the adapters you can have your wheel working on almost any console. Even Nintendo Switch.

Heh I just hacked the controls on GTA Vice City PS2 ISO to work with my steering wheel on PS3 with a wheel not meant for PS3, and it works perfectly. 

The only thing that's a little ackward is when you're on foot. You have to push down the accelerator to run lol. Wish I could make it work with another controller for on foot but my talents are not that great.

I just bought this right here for $16.99 https://www.amazon.com/Selector-Peripheral-Switcher-One-Button-Swapping/dp/B07ZK2M5HX/ref=dp_ob_title_ce

It will allow me with one touch of a button to switch between PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo Switch. I have already tested all these consoles with my wheel and they work with several of these Mayflash adapters http://www.mayflash.com/Products/NINTENDOWiiU/MAGIC-NS.html. I already have a two switch hub that will allow me to have Xbox One support when I get this in the mail https://www.ebay.com/itm/Brook-Game-Controller-Super-Converter-Xbox-360-to-Xbox-One-D101/353062224555?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649 so it'll be Forza time.

So my 1 steering wheel will be hooked up to

PC (native support)
Xbox 360 (native support)
Playstation 3 (Mayflash Magic NS adapter)
Nintendo Switch (Mayflash Magic NS adapter)
Xbox One (Brook 360 to One adapter)

and I just tried out a little program on my Wii U called Hidtovpad and there's a network client and I had my steering wheel hooked up to my PC while playing Mario Kart 8 on Wii U. I had to remap one button in a config since Mario Kart 8 uses a to accelerate but after that it worked with the gas pedal. So with very little effort once I get everything I need I will be able to choose between 5 consoles + PC with 1 wheel it is going to be epic muaahahhaah.
