Just a piece of friendly advice.  You might be a little high on the prices.  Check Shoryuken.com forums and see some of the prices on their for hacking services.  There's an Xbox360 on there complete for cheaper than yours including the pad.

Can you point me to one of those threads?  I can't seem to find a search option there...  :banghead:

HarumaN hacks are quality hacks. I'd swear by em. He's done a number of them for me and never had any problems and don't imagine I ever will.

Thanks!

Out of all the hacks I've done (and that's a lot!) I've only had one go bad... and I made that right by upgrading it to a wireless controller...

Yeah, I registered just to take a look...  neither one of them have a picture of the completed hacks, and make no mention of what buttons are available.  Looks like one of the sellers has quality/communication/turnaround time issues.   :dunno

The amount of business I get comes in waves.  Sometimes I have many orders, sometimes none.  I doubt it has to do with my prices vs. those at Shoyruken.

Just wanted to give a shout out.  Haruman hooked me up with a hacked 360 pad.  I just got all of my controls hooked up and it works flawlessly.  His service is top notch and I look forward to working with him again.

Here's what the dreamcast hack will look like (with optional analog stick hack):

Could you explain more about this? I am still planning my current project, but and was seriously considering tucking away space under the control panel for my new Dreamcast. The lack of analog stick and triggers really are a nagging issue for me. If Can't replicate the analog controls, I might as well just leave DC controllers hooked up.

I hack the triggers.  I also can hack the analog stick, it just makes it act digital (on / off).  What games are you playing on the DC that require analog function?

Well that's just it, isn't it? I don't know what DC games I'll want to play, but If I can't play certain ones, then the value of adding a DC to my cab is diminished --unless I have DC controllers at hand. Then the question is why hook the DC to my arcade controls at all if I am going to need  DC controllers for certain games anyway.

I have tried searching for info, but it seems hard to find any regarding how to incorporate an analog arcade stick to a DC.

That's because it is very difficult (if not impossible) to do.

I have ~100 Dreamcast games.  Only one of them (Berzerk) requires use of the analog stick, and none make use of the analog trigger feature.  With that game and a hacked analog stick (now digital), the game is still playable, the only difference is your at full speed 100% of the time.

So I saw something about this service of yours in my other thread  ;D.   Can you hack a PS3 control to work with both PS3 and PC?  What I am looking to do is to make a PS3 stick that can be later integrated into a cabinet.

Yes it can be done.  There is a custom driver that someone wrote that will allow windows to recognize the PS3 controller.  So, you should be able to use it for both systems.

Quote
Here are the instructions:

   1. Download and install the filter driver (libusb-win32-filter-bin-0.1.10.1.exe).
   2. Unpack ps3sixaxis_en.exe
   3. Plug the SIXAXIS into your PC.
   4. Run ps3sixaxis_en.exe once.
   5. Push the PS button on the SIXAXIS once if it doesn't see it straight away.

I've included the driver files

One of these days, someone should make what could be called a 'dork' (or maybe 'noob') stick - made out of wood, but boxy and with some kind of electronic item's box graphics on it.

I made my first stick out of an old speaker box, a piece of particle board shelving for the CP, and then covered everything in black marble contact paper.  It was pretty hideous.

Actually, I don't see marble finish being all that bad. Man, it would cost a lot but I bet people here who normally poo-poo marble melamine or whatever would totally go ape----steaming pile of meadow muffin--- for a cab made of actual marble.

You can take a hacked controller, and wire it to your control panel directly, or you can wire it to an edge connector, and plug it in to your cabinet.

I dont want to hardwire it to my control panel as I use it for other things.

I did buy this to enable a PC to connect to the control panel via USB

http://jvspac.kirurg.org/

Is there a way you can make a Dreamcast Version.

Or is there a way you can hack one of these to USB instead of an X-Arcade, then I connect my I/O via USB to it?

Aah, I forgot you did this HarumaN. Very nice hacks man. So each 360 controller has about 30 hookups I see. I'll need an enclosure with LPT connectors for it like this:


... so I can connect my controls to it.


I hope I wrote the pinout down somewhere :D

What are the dimensions of the 360 pcb with the wirestrips? What minimum size enclosure would I need to get?

Would you be needing wired or wireless hacks?  If wired, I would HIGHLY recommend the MadCatz (GameStop) pad, as it has a common ground and only 16 hookups (vs. 30 for the non-commom ground M$ official pads).

I'll have to do some measuring when I get home...

The madcatz pads are 5.25 by 2.5 by 1 inch, and the terminal strips add a couple of inches...

I would wait until you had the pads in hand to buy a enclosure box.  That way you could be certain they would fit.

hey HarumaN,

Great work!!

I want to build a FPS CP for my 360 using two analog joysticks
is this possible?

I'd need a wireless controler hack plus I'd need to find out what type of pot the controller uses and how to rewire those to the new joysticks

@ Bender, thanks! :)

Unfortunately, what you want has been requested / suggested many times.  As far as I know, it just isn't possible. 

The problem lies in matching up potentiometers.  You have to match the neutral resistance (stick centered), which in itself probably wouldn't be too hard, but then you would have to match the extremes as well (as in 100% left / 100% right).

Whoa, check this out, how hard are these to hack?

It looks like quasimoto did it

if your interested in trying it I'd be happy to cover the cost for parts for you to experiment with

I wanted to do something like this but on a cp not in a chair

Satisfied customer bump!

I just got my controller hacks from HarumaN, and one of them was a madcatz arcade stick.  If you can get them for that cheap, I'd say go for it, the hack is solid and CLEAN -- HarumaN did an excellent job!

Thanks a lot brother!

Haruman, if you buy the controller for a hack, do you buy new off the shelf or try to get cheaper used pads? Just curious what the total price is for hacking a Mad Catz 360 pad that you purchase.

I get used, if available.  For the most part, there aren't usually a whole lot of used controllers at Gamestop (where I would go), but sometimes I get lucky.  Were you referring to the regular Mad Catz pad or the arcade stick version?  (Both can be hacked with a single ground, but the regular pad would be smaller in the end)

Either would be fine. Are there any benefits or caveats besides price and size between the two?

Nope, both will function exactly the same.  Shoot me a PM and we can talk details if you are interested.   :cheers:

My project is currently on hold right now for maybe a week. I've got a cheapo Hori 360 on order just so I can test it out. I know everyone says you get what you pay for with those sticks, but I'm at least going to check it out. Worst comes to worst I can sell it since they hold their value pretty well.

If I do choose to start on a new home-built stick, I'll definitely be buying one of your pre-hacked pads. Keep an eye out for cheap Mad Catz 360 pads, as I'll get back to you either way.

Just got a 360 pad from Haruman today and it works great. Top quality work, and it's rock solid. If anyone needs a pre-hacked pad, these are probably the best you can get out there. Highly recommended!

Aah, I forgot you did this HarumaN. Very nice hacks man. So each 360 controller has about 30 hookups I see. I'll need an enclosure with LPT connectors for it like this:


... so I can connect my controls to it.


I hope I wrote the pinout down somewhere :D

What are the dimensions of the 360 pcb with the wirestrips? What minimum size enclosure would I need to get?

Wow thats nice is that a quick release on a DB25???

Free bump to your thread because I need help obtaining parts to do my first build.

I found just one of the Female DB25 connectors that you can mount to something and solder the wires into metal tubes from the back side.  I need alteast one more of those.

I need project boxes, terminal blocks (or terminal strips not sure what you call them), and any other general hints/tips.

I think digikey.com would have most of what I need but I cant tell from there catalog what is what.

So I appreciate the help, feel free to PM me so I do not derail your thread.  Also I have 4 official DC pads inbound, I only need 2, if all goes well and you still need DC controller stock I can help you out.

It allows you to build your own controls for the Xbox 360 (or whatever other system), so you can use arcade style controls to play games.

Haruman hacked a 360 pad for me a few months ago. I finally installed it in my panel to play SF4 last night and it worked flawlessly. It was almost unfair playing all those suckers who were using the d-pad  ;D

Thanks, Haruman!  :applaud:

ROFL... no problem.  :)  Just a note, the triggers (LT and RT) have their own ground, right next to them, marked with a "g".

Your other controller will be there tomorrow, I mailed it this morning.

So now that the wireless 360 pcb's have common ground does that mean that you can just take 1 wire from the pcb and daisey chain it to all of the buttons, and dpad instead of having to run a ground wire from each seperate button on the pcb?  If so how many total wires are required now for a common ground wireless pad

I see you just mentioned the triggers have a seperate ground, does the dpad as well?  If you choose to use the bumper buttons instead of the triggers, do they also have a seperate ground as well?

Do you have the sames issues with the common ground wired 360 controllers?

Also another question for you.  On a wired controller hack, would it be possible power one led from the pcb without need a separate battery?  For example if you were using one of the hollow joystick shaft's that luigi provides, could you somehow wire it to an 360 pcb, and have it lite when the controller was plugged into the 360?

No, the common ground wired seem to be fine, its just the wireless that have an issue... 

Also, yes, you can pull 5V from the PCB (wired) to power one or more LED's.

awesome thanks for the info.  Once I get my stick next week I'll get with you on a wired hack.

Thanks a lot for the trigger-hacked madcatz pads, HarumaN   :cheers:
I got them like a week or two ago, and just got to soldering the rest of the wires on a pad yesterday, and today I modified my SF Anniversary stick.

I'm really going to use these pads for something else, but I did this for now to play SFIV  8)
I added two microswitches in the memory card hole.. made one of them the Guide button, the other one does nothing, lol.
BTW, does anyone know what brand joystick+buttons I have in this stick? I'm not sure I like the joystick; the throw's pretty large.. and the buttons are too tall.
Pretty messy, but it's my first, and it works:

Woohoo!  Just got mine today, and it's almost perfect. 

The right trigger wires weren't glued down, and one of the solder points snapped in shipping.  Not a huge deal; I'm pretty noobish with a soldering iron, and I fixed it in a couple seconds.  Actually, now that I look at it, I don't think HarumaN glues down the trigger connections because of where they are on the board.  I might wrap mine in some hot glue to add a little more structure, since I imagine the box'll get a little beat up over time.  I might try to pull a 3.3v line out later on for an LED, too.

ANYHOW.

I highly recommend this service.  HarumaN was great throughout the whole thing, answering a slew of at least semi-annoying questions through PMs.  I might have been able to get it wired up on my own, but there's no way in hell I could have got it as clean and solid. 

* escher sits and waits not-so-patiently for his akihabarashop order to come through.

Once again, to reiterate through my little ramble, this was totally worthwhile.  I would have killed at least two pads trying to do this on my own.

Hmm, did I not glue the trigger wires?  I must have overlooked that, I normally do.  My bad...   :dizzy:

No problem.  I figured it was because they're in a rough place to lay flat on the board.  I'll just add some around the connections (leaving them standing vertical) before I throw it in the actual box.

It was fun testing the thing out with just a small U of wire.  :)

I've thanked HarumaN in other threads as I couldnt post here, but I just wanted to say that the service he provides is second to none.. He keeps in good contact with you, updating you all the way to the delivery date, the work is well done and I had zero issues with my PCB I got from him.

All in all I'd highly recommend him to people who want to build a stick with the least hassle, for a good price..

quick question. I just picked up a Sega Saturn Dual Stick Controller and was wondering if you have a hack for those controllers? All the adapters seem to be out of stock.

Was wondering if you could offer a bit of wisdom as to how I should proceed.  Some friends and myself are putting a Wii in a showcase cabinet with the intention of running Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom on it.  Basically, I need to know what my best bet would be controller wise and if you hack gamecube controllers (assuming that's the way to go?).  I wouldn't mind converters/alternate methods but I'm not entirely sure there's been much down with a Wii.  Problem that also comes into play is the distance between the unit and the buttons.  Any suggestions or possible services you could offer would be fantastic.  I'm interested in buying from you in the end!

What are the brand, do you know?

Assuming they are hackable, $35 each (shipping included).

ok so I'm following up on your comment on my thread about using a switch to switch between the Ipac and hacked 360 controllers.  So how exactly would that work?  I think the best thing to go with are 2 hacked wired controllers.  I'm not thinking of buying it now exactly, but in the fall.  I'm just trying to see if it's within my mean $$ wise.

So it'd 90 for you to hack and ship two controllers + cost of controllers + switch?

If anyone is on the fence and unsure, HarumaN's work is top notch. Everything was shipped professionally and his communication was fantastic.

Almost completed my hookup to the cab (hopefully tonight for the weekend!).

Hello.  I have been researching now for a while but have not come up with anything myself but, it seems like you are the man for this kind of thing.  I guess it is hard to explain so I drew a picture to describe to you.  I am building a cabinet and i am wanting to put a dreamcast and a xbox 360 in it.  I am trying to make one control panel with both consoles hooked up to it.  Here is my picture


of course I would want all buttons and directions done , just did a few so it didnt get jumbled

Is this possible to do.  If so how much would you charge me to hack 2 360 controllers and 2 dreamcast controllers to one terminal strip.  I would ship the dreamcast controllers to you and I would want 2 official wired xbox 360 controllers.  

Thanks in advance
Alex

I see no ones posted in this thread in a few months. Are you still doing your controller hacks, HarumaN? If so, I may have need for one of your 360 pads in the next couple of weeks or so.

Buy the new MadCatz Street Fighter IV Fightpad.  All are common ground, and the triggers are already digital, no messing around with analog.  Also, the contacts are gold, so you don't have anything to scrape.

« Reply #124 on: December 22, 2010, 07:24:29 pm »
Wow, been out of the game too long, lol. 

About a week ago I picked up a modded XBOX Classic (NOT 360) loaded with a pile of emu's and such.  One of the emu's is CoinOPS showroom X.  The thought of playing these with the old XBOX controller kills, so I've been searching for arcade sticks that are XBOX compatible.  No dice, next thing I thought of was hacking an XBOX controller and hooking it up to an IPAC, stick, and buttons that I had laying around from an old arcade project I never finished.  This is how I stumbled onto this thread. 

Will I be able to use an 8 way control stick + IPAC + your XBOX controller hack to hook this up to the XBOX?  I read elsewhere that there was something that prevented the XBOX from being able to reproduce control pad motions faithfully.  Possibly the difference in throw from the XBOX controller and 8-way stick?  Hope that isn't confusing.

If the above will work fine, do you see any issues with wiring a dedicated 4 way stick alongside the 8 way in this setup?

You don't need an iPac, only the controller hack.  Also note that I don't hack the analog sticks, just the d-pad.  I can hack the click buttons, though (where you press down the analog stick).

You can wire an 8-way to the d-pad no problem, and can wire a dedicated 4 way in, too.  (Just don't use both at the same time, lol).

I'm building a MAME cab.  Currently running a 360 controller on the PC...So if I send you a couple of these 360 controllers, the dongles you send back attached to the controller will hook into my arcade control sticks and buttons?  Is that the deal?  I'm sorry...New to this stuff.

Yes.  I connect the controllers to terminal strips, which you then connect to your controls.

Just received my padhack :D Looks very solid - Can't wait to get this wired up tonight. Will post a few pics once I have done so.

Shipping time from the US to the UK was about 10 working days and was very well packed. No Customs charges on it either which was nice!
Hey Dudes thanks, for rescuing me, lets go for a burger.... HA! HA! HA! HA!

Does anyone have any examples to how they mounted these in a cabinet? I am getting two Dreamcast pads from HarumaN  in a few weeks and want to prep the cab.

Is this possible at all with the PS3 Sixaxis controller? I know it's different then original PSX controllers since it uses a weird plastic like strip thing.

I've hacked a six-axis before, but its really hard.  You're better off getting a toodles axisdapter,

I just wanted to give a quick shout out to HaRuMaN for the excellent work he did on the two dreamcast hack pads.  I ordered them and in less then one week they arrived, the package was extremely well protected and the soldering job was excellent.  He even glued over the solder connections to protect them from breaking off the pad. In my opinion he went above and beyond by making sure the connections were all labeled making it easy to connect the wires from my jamma fingerboard to the controller connections.  Now I can finally get my shmupping on in my Blast City! Once again thanks HaRuMaN!!!!

Ummmm the dress making comment was in regards to the 20+ spam posts advertising for dresses. Now that they are deleted, my post looks a little lame, it wasn't meant to be derogatory to ya :)

Anyhow I've got some heavily used wireless 360 controller's with the analog sticks worn out (permanency returning to down , not centered) and sticky buttons. That shouldn't matter at all, would it?- Thanks.

People typically use the toodles axisdapter with a PS3 sixaxis controller.  I can buy the kits and make them for you, and assemble the whole deal if you like.

You want the analog joystick or the D-pad?  I can do both.  Most DC games just use the D-pad.

You can send me an email...  it's my username here, all lowercase, @gmail.com

Hi HaRuMaN
I have just read through the post, and you look like exactly what I need. However I need to understand why you say you dont hack analogue?

Is it because they are separatable from the main PCB and can be placed where I want already?

I need an xbox style USB controller hacking. Something like:

But I want access to both of the analogue pots to attach to a steering wheel and a gearstick and I also want both the analogue triggers intact to move elsewhere.

Sorry if this is a dumb question but yeah I want a hacked controller for the digital bits but I also want to move the analogue bits about 16 inches apart. Does this sound feasible or does the analogue bits become redundant on your hacked controllers?

Cheers,
Lins.

Hmmm this is a learning game isnt it. I think the rabbit hole goes much deeper heheh.

I think I now know the answer to my above question. Am I right in thinking the analog stuff (triggers and joypads) are fixed to the PCB and you cant remove it because of the complications involved with variable signals and return positions etc?

If that is the case, how about replacing the analogues with something like this:
http://www.sparkfun.com/products/9032
Is it possible to link that in to say the above controller of mine and run it through the same USB interface? Or am I then going to hit major problems with the drivers for a PC?

Hmmmm, Sorry if I am hijacking your thread, please let me know and I'll stop asking on this one for advice.
Cheers,

L

As far as I know, no one has ever successfully connected a steering wheel or analog joystick to the pots.

You could relocate the analog sticks...  probably not the triggers, though.  I do hack the triggers so that they are digital.

Aaah sorry heheh. Location added.

So I think I could put up with digital triggers, but would you be able to help me relocate the analogue sticks? Put them onto 20cm or 30cm wires so I can place them where I need to?

Superb! Thank you so much for your help.
Because I am wanting to use the Raspberry Pi for this due to my size restrictions I just want to wait a couple more weeks until it comes out so I can confirm what joypads have support for it immediately then I will be putting in an order.


Cheers again,

Lins.

Excellent. May have some business with you as well, then.

While we're on the subject of controls, does anybody know how the windows driver handles the hacked triggers. Does it still try to treat them as one axis?

Hello, I'm new here, so I can't pm yet. 
I'm making a MAME/ xbox 360 arcade cab.  I would like to know how much you are asking for 2 of the wired madcatz controller hacks.  Shipping would be to Ontario, Canada.  I don't have the controllers to send you, so please include them in the price.   ( I'm assuming the madcatz controllers work on pc with the drivers installed, like an official controller?)
Thanks.

Hello, I'm new here, so I can't pm yet. 
I'm making a MAME/ xbox 360 arcade cab.  I would like to know how much you are asking for 2 of the wired madcatz controller hacks.  Shipping would be to Ontario, Canada.  I don't have the controllers to send you, so please include them in the price.   ( I'm assuming the madcatz controllers work on pc with the drivers installed, like an official controller?)
Thanks.

PM sent.  You can also email me at my PayPal address I PM'ed you.

Heya Haruman

Just received my new Vewlix L...keen to get some custom work done (similar to your recent pic) - 2 wired 360 controllers with vewlix connectors and maybe some other bits and pieces (would love it if you were interested in working up some sort of switching solution as well, so that i could make my cabinet more non-fuss-multifunctional in future) - to be sent to Australia.

Not sure how many posts I need to make before I can PM? I don't seem able to click on profiles.

cheers

Hi HaRuMaN,

I was wondering if you've ever hacked a TG16 TurboStick, or if you know of anywhere that has instructions on how to hack them.

Thanks

I have not hacked that stick, but I have hacked a couple of TG16 pads.  I have never seen the insides of the TurboStick.

First off, I would like to say that I am amazed by your work.  Your posts have inspired me to finally attempt a Dualshock 3 padhack I've been considering for a few months.

I am a little bit lost, however, as to how to get started, and I have a few questions regarding how you personally perform your padhacks.  If you wouldn't mind my picking your brain, please PM me.

If the guts are like these:



Then I wouldn't touch it.  PCB is flakey and triggers are a pain (need transistors & resistor to get them working).

I honestly don't know, though, I have never seen one in person.

Anyone one the fence about ordering might want to do so soon.  My wife and I are expecting our second child at the end of September, and that's going to slow me down considerably.

If it's not too late...   Was hoping to get in an order of two (wired) PS2 hacks, and possibly 1 (wired) 360.  I don't have any extras to send, so are these in stock?  This could really help out, so I don't spend all my time perfecting my sketchy soldering skills  :embarassed: , and can concentrate on some woodworking and design.

If possible, let's leave the analog sticks mechanisms intact and functional.  I/ve been wanting to experiment with some physical mods of an on board analog.  Yet, would still like some leads from the D-pads.  Not worried about L3 or R3 clicks though.

Congrats to you   :cheers:  I feel for you on the whole sleep thing.  My little one is almost a year   ;D

Hello,

I have 2 controllers similar to this one:
http://geralgamesfps.blogspot.pt/2011/10/driver-joystick-vibration-x-tech-ns3121.html

Can I use this hack to control mame? Will I get LAG or it will work fine?
My doubt is if I can use them or should I buy an iPAC?

Thanks!

I have never seen that type of controller so I can't comment.  If you want something that for sure works out the box, then I would go with an iPac.

Are the Madcatz FightPad SD the same as the older ones? If so they have $20 off at Madcatz. Comes out to $20 each with 9$ total on shipping even with multiple controllers. Seems like an ok deal if you don't ebay.

(They also have PS3 ones, are those hackable??)

I have never tried the SD ones...  I'm guessing they are the same inside, but can't confirm that.

As far as PS3, I don't know.  Never tried that one.  They are wireless, and use a dongle.  You'd be better off using a six-axis controller to take advantage of the bluetooth / usb wired.

Queue now at zero. Get your order in and be first in line.

I've got 5 macatz fightpads on hand, so anyone looking for some wired 360 hacks this would be a good time to order for a quick turnaround.

Hey HaRuMaN, congrats on the baby! Hopefully one day my wife and I will be able to have kids.

Have you ever hacked a Classic Controller Pro for the Wii? I don't need the analogs, just the digital buttons. I had a few questions for a project I'm working on. I want to stuff a Wii Remote's guts into the CCP shell and I can't seem to find any info online on what the possible solder points are on the Classic Controller (Pro). Particularly how do you solder where the tact switches are (home, -, +, sync).

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Thanks!  No, I have never hacked the classic controller pro.  I had someone ask me about one not too long ago, but it never materialized, so I never did it.  If you decide to open one up, take some hi-res pictures of the pcb, and I should be able to help you.

Do you  scrape or do anything to the Madcatz contacts at all before you solder? I thought there was a "How to" somewhere but I can't seem to find it.

Nope, the madcatz you don't have to do that.

Did you ever try a PS3 Madcatz hack? I think they should be the same. They have them for $15 shipped, the xbox 360 ones were OOS.

HaRuMan, here is a pic of the Classic Controller Pro PCB.



How much would you charge me to solder wires onto all of the buttons and d-pad? I don't need the analog sticks. I also don't need the other end of the wires connected to anything. I will solder them onto my Wii Remote myself. The only thing I would require is that they are soldered in a way as to where the controller can be reassembled all of the buttons and d-pad would still be usable, and it would LOOK normal from the outside. Thanks.

That would be pretty difficult to do... 

What exactly are you trying to accomplish here? 

Also, I'm not seeing a picture...

Sorry, thought I had the picture in there. I fixed the above post now. I want to put the Wii Remote inside of the CCP shell along with the CCP pcb itself so I can have both a "wireless" classic controller, along with the option of using the CCP buttons to control a wii remote only game.

Sorry, thought I had the picture in there. I added it, but that's the best way I can add it now, since my work blocks MOST sites that have the word "game" in them. I want to put the Wii Remote inside of the CCP shell along with the CCP pcb itself so I can have both a "wireless" classic controller, along with the option of using the CCP buttons to control a wii remote only game.

Ahh.  Pretty sure that's beyond my capabilities.  Sorry man.   :-\

Hey that's cool. I'll give it a go myself. Now that the pic is finally there, can you give me any pointers as to where I would need to solder? I'm guessing I can just scrape some copper from the dpad and abxy buttons, but I'm not sure how to do that safely. The biggest concern for me though, what method can I try to solder to the -,+ and home buttons in the middle?

I can't see the picture (blocked @ work).  However, if the contacts are copper, you don't need to scrape, just solder.

As for the +/-/home buttons, if they are the tactile switches, you just need to find the correct leg to solder to (should be 4 legs, 2 are ground, 2 are signal).

I am working on a pair Wii U Pro controllers right now, and have mapped out those PCB's, that's how I'm handling the tactile switches.

I will be modding a Street fighter 15th anniversary stick to use on 360 so ill be needing a hacked controller. Im in Australia so im guessing it would be a ---smurfette--- to send you a controller have you hack it and send it back so can you let me know how much it would cost for you to supply the controller, hack it and post it to Australia?

Are you still using the Mad Catz pads for 360?  I can't find them for a reasonable price anywhere.  Is there any way to do do a simultaneous PC and 360 control setup?  I've heard that some use KVM switches, but have also heard about the common ground issues.

I am still using the Mad Catz Fightpad or Brawlpad for 360, I watch for deals & on eBay. 

Yes, you can use a KVM to switch for PC / 360.  With the Fightpad / Brawlpad, they are completely common ground, so no issues at all.

Do the Street Fighter x Tekken pads work the same?

As far as I know, they do.  From what I understand they just shrunk the controller size a small amount, the PCB inside should be the same.

hi there, im looking to get 2 hacked xbox 360 control pads in the very near future for my build.
I want to run a pc for mame and emus......... and xbox 360............my question is do I for example run the wire for up on the hacked pad to the up microswitch on my happ competion stick and also have another wire connected to up mictroswitch and running to I-pac?
..............And does the ground wire just get daisy chained aroung everything same as I-pac?     .....................does that make any sense? :dunno

sorry for the NooB question.............I am grateful for any and all help.
Also how much for shipping to Australia for 2 hacked pads plus you supply both controllers?
...........and are wired controls best or wireless?

thanks mate

Thanks. N64 is about the only 32 bit and up system without a PS2 to "something" controller adapter.

Well, except Wii U (if the game only supports Wii U Gamepad and or Pro Controllers). Oh my, I would never want to hack a probably around $100 GamePad just to play Wii U Arkham City with an arcade joystick. (Which would suck with arcade controls anyway).

The only Wii U game now that I MUST have in a cab is Tekken Tag 2 Wii U Edition. At least that game supports original Wii Classic Controllers.
