Could any one here provide me with some pc-fx controller info?

I know the device uses an ID system

Mouse = 0xD
Multitap = 0xE
Pad = 0xF

And I know its a serialized data, guessing a clock, latch, and data pins. but It would appear the system is sending some kind of a handle to the controller. I could not possibly guess this. Looking for a hardware manual or dev kit for the pc-fx. Or just someone that may know this info.



Since there is like 0 info on the net I figure I'd post what I found out.

First of I was able to successfully convert this fx-pad to usb!! I used an atmel atmega chip with avr programming.

Here is the correct pin out.

facing the game pad plug
1 2 3 4
0 0 0 0
0 0 0
5 6 7

1 +5
2 data
3 set low, this may be the data direction
4 latch
5 Gnd
6 clock
7 Gnd

I'm not sure what the original clock speed is but with my 12 mhz, I set it to 6us and it worked fine. Raise the latch, then looping.. lower the clock, read a bit, higher the clock..16 bits and your done Wink

I never figure out how to requests an ID. but its not needed to make it work.

Chances are I will not be back to this forum so PM, and replying wont find me, if you need to look for bliss-box usb controller, that me Wink

If you find this info useful please link back to my main page
