PCFX arcade pad?
« on: April 30, 2016, 09:25:51 AM »
Was there ever one for the PCFX? and does anybody have one they may want to separate with? I like arcade sticks, and figured I would ask.

Thanks guys

No. The PCFX was such a failure that there was no third party accessories whatsoever.

yeah... not much reason for one to exist. If you really wanted one you'd have to pad hack a PCFX controller into like an existing stick but really wouldn't be worth the effort IMO

It's easier to pull off some of the more difficult to do menu selections with one.

It would be nice if someone could make a guide showing which wires to connect to get an Ave Pad 6 working with a PC-FX controller plug. Just to have a decent d-pad for the games which need it.

I think that you're going to actually need a circuit board for that ... the impression that I get from the PC-FX docs is that the joypad port is clocked-serial and not nibble-based like the PC Engine.

I'd love to be wrong on that, but I don't think that there are enough pins on it to do the full 2-way communication that it supports if it were using anything other than serial shift-registers.

A real hardware-guy could probably figure it out pretty quickly.

In every way.

I just was wondering. I may need to get a mouse. Because the D pad is garbage. Idk. It was just a thought.

Do you remember what mice were like in 1994?

Stick with the pad.

For most games does the standard controller just work fine? I recall playing Blue Breaker and the controller seemed fine to use. Don't remember it being terrible.

Time to figure out a d-pad(Genesis 6-button or Saturn?) replacement + shell mod then. :P
