|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
3 set low, this may be the data direction
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
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
If you find this info useful please link back to my main page http://bliss-box.net/
