The only way to get those working on a PS2 or PS3 is to get a new PCB. There aren't any adapters that can do it...
This is what i am planning to do. I have all the tools and an extra ps2 controller.

That's a bit extreme... Why not buy just buy a PS2 stick or build a PS2 one from scratch. The parts in the EX2 aren't that great, and $50+ is a little much to buy what is basically a shell (that you'll have to physically file down and modify if you want Sanwas/Seimitsus to fit) for all intents and purposes.

I think you can get them on Amazon or from ebay stores in the US for cheaper postage also...

Also is there a link to modding for the 360? Which HRAP should i be targetting? I see there are different models.
HRAP1 and 2 are for PS1 and 2. HRAP3 is for PS3 (and BC PS2 games). HRAPEX (if you can find it) is for Xbox360.

Also check the padhacking thread for advice on hooking up a 360 pcb.

I'll just re-post what I wrote in the Pickup thread.

Finally got my Saturn USB controllers and they are awesome.



Tried it out on my Triple with SCIV, Bionic Commando: Rearmed, and a bunch of PS2 and PS1 games ranging from the SF Alpha compilation, 3rd Strike, SF:EX, and many others. Works like a charm and feels much better than the Dual Shock 3. =D Just remember, you're kinda SOL if you need to use the select button for some reason as nothing is mapped to the select on the Saturn pad. So if you're on the fence and looking for a good fighting game pad for the PC/PS3... this is it.
Yar, I definitely feel more accurate with the Saturn D-pad. And yes, it works on BC PS2/PS1 games. You don't have to worry about pressing a home button or anything as the Triple automatically recognizes the pad (assuming you set your actual PS3 controller to slot 2, 3, etc.) If you want to navigate the home menu, just have your sixaxis/dual shock on another controller slot and go from there. Glad I got them last week. :D

Question for you guys,

I have a Fighting Stick Wii, I want to get an octagonal gate but I have no soldering skills. Do I need soldering skills to change the gate?

And if I do, how difficult is it to solder for a complete newb?

I figure that if I had to solder I might as well get some Seimetsu buttons and stick as well. Also, does anyone know what seimetsu part numbers for the buttons, stick, and gate I would need for the Wii stick?

Thanks!

Guilty Gear XX AC is a lot of fun with the stick, I just want the new gate to make moves morre consistent. I am hating this 4-way gate....

No soldering necessary if you're only performing the simple gate mod. You'd only have to drill four holes and replace the gate piece.

The Seimitsu buttons you'll want are the 30mm PS-14GN or PS-14-KN.
When I modded my EX2 I didn't bother swapping the stick but the gate I used was the octagonal Sanwa GT-Y

Cool!! Thanks guys!

When drilling the holes is there anything special I need to look out for?

Is there possibly a guide that anyone can provide a link for or some pictures?

Thanks!

One more question, is the stock hori stick top a 30mm? And if I want to change the top, does it matter if I get a 35mm top, or do I need to stick with a 30mm, I am thinking of getting a bat top and a spare ball top, to see which I like more.

The bat top I am looking at is the Sanwa LB-30-N, 30mm.

The ball top is the Seimitsu LB-39, 35mm.

Most definitely. Thanks for posting that pic on the pickup thread. Now if they would only work on the 360, it would truly be the ultimate.

Outstanding. They even put the start/select buttons on the side, like all the custom builders are doing. Definitely picking one of these up. Good stuff MarkMan!

Pads look unweildy but BRA-FUCKIN-VO on the premium sticks. Especially if they're full Sanwa.
My frothing demand for this hardware increases.

Some features were that they were going to be removable faceplates (they (Capcom) showed us pics of them during our vendor session/training in the presentation
Nice, I notice different size's too and are they Sanwa buttons?

Good stuff MarkMan.

Hot damn those sticks look amazing.

MarkMan, you helped design these, right?

And those pads...hard to say for certain but they look a little too large, but will wait to hold one before I pass judgment. As long as the 360 one has a good d-pad I might get one just for XBLA titles and the such.

Those sticks look absolutely killer. I'm not sure how I feel about the gamepad design but I guess I'll have to wait and see.

Just got myself a HORI stick for my 360, I'm really really loving it.

What sort of easy mods could I do myself? I have a background in soldering and basic electronics.

Anyone know a good site to get me started? I think I want to do a case replacement with some LED changes. Is it possible to take out the ball shaped stick to put in one of the more egg shaped ones.

Sorry, I'm not an arcade stick fanatic just yet, excuse my inability to express what I need. :lol

wow. Madcatzzz redeemed? Those look fucking epic. Looks like my custom stick for SFIV was not needed after all. Any word on the feel of them or the parts used?


*edit*

I didn't know MarkMan worked on them. Very nice.

Damn, good job MadCatz. Who'd've thunk it?

Hard to see the gamepads, but I might want the gamepad and seriously want the stick. =(
barring terrible reviews

edit: Might deserve its own thread, too. I had to see it at Kotaku. :/

MadCatz!? What? How is this possible!? Please, bring these to Europe they look epic.

Shame about the pads looking so, uhm....chunky? I'll reserve judgement, if the D-pad is upto snuff it pretty much demands a buy regardless of the rest of the design. Plus, 6 face buttons is very tasty indeed.

Not sure how limited they will be yet.
O yeah, they are coming to pal land! Thanks!

edit: O and I have a question. I have Street Fighter Anniversary Edition Arcade Stick from Nuby. Its seems it has a kind of hardware problem, every half a minute the stick inputs a "up" movement. So in SFIII my character starts to jump by itself which is pretty annoying and kind of gamebreaking. Is this a known problem with sticks and is it fixable?
