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?



EDIT: Crap, image just broke. Serves me right for hotlinking it. I'll upload a new one when I get home.

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

Just saw this post, missed it for some reason before.  Those are easy to hack, and have a common ground.  :)

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!

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:
