*Update*, I tried 3 of my "Wired 3rd (Third) Party controllers"; Saitek PSX3000, Interact Dual Impact R2-9000 Gamepad & an Alien Ware Dual Compatible Game Pad (The Alien Ware controller has it's own USB Plug, so the adapter is redundant, but I tried the adapter anyways) & the adapter works quite well with all of them. Still experimenting with the adapter, so there "Might" be hope for it still. Added a star to my rating.
I did not use the plastic controller port, nor did I use the USB connector on the end for my build. I opted to use the controller board to connect directly to the USB pins on the Pi, as well as the PCB for the PS-ONE.
The version that I received had a small "brick" on the cable, which is where all of the components were housed. The housing came apart with a gentle bit of force, and it revealed a rectangular connector that I could now use for directly solder connections to. I preferred this configuration, as my build reused the original controller ports on the front of the PS-ONE, and I needed to save as much space as possible inside. Those PS-ONES are small. Everything barely fits, but it does!
I did use a multi-meter to check for what connector went to what part of the board, as well as what connector went to what pin on the USB cable, as I don't trust any products to lay things out in a way that makes sense. Once I knew my pin-outs, I soldered everything up, and turned it on without any additional software or configuration. I was prompted on startup of EmulationStation to map the controller buttons, and after that, everything just "worked".
Do note, that you will have power to the other controller port, but you won't be able to use two controllers with only one adapter. If you want to use both, you will need to cut the traces in between the two ports on the PS-ONE board. Just because the controller lights up, doesn't mean that the adapter is going to magically support two controllers being connected at the same time. For my build, I only needed a single controller, and this works perfectly. If I wanted to add a controller, I would still use this product, as the controller section is smaller and easier to work with than the larger V shaped dual controller options. It would be easier to have two separate PCB's with connections that are rectangular than a weird V shape. The above statement only applies if you go the same route as me with my build. If you are using the adapter by itself or are directly plugging in your controllers to the original connector attached to the cable, ignore this.
I'll be purchasing this same item again when it comes time to make another Pi-Station, as I know that this is the perfect part for the job.
Not sure about multitap support, but you should be able to plug one in and work multiple controllers on it. No software came with this particular adapter that allows definition of players, so a multitap may not work for it. Ideal for PlayStation emulation, accepts analog mode (Back when switching between digital 8-way and analog was a big deal), overall a worthwhile purchase that exceeded whatever little expectations I had for it.
All measures are rough:
- 1x PlayStation controller input connector
- 1x USB output connector
- 1x adapter unit (Handles conversion), 1.3' x 1'
- 2x pieces of wire;
- From PS connector to adapter unit, 3'
- From adapter unit to USB connector, 10'
- 1x odd sticker labelled "CONVERTER"
Pros: If you're playing with yourself, then this adapter is pretty alright. I will update this with more information as time goes on to test rumble support and stuff like that.
Cons: My particular unit recognizes two inputs? I assume one is either for a second player, using a controller chip to support two players or whe plugged into PC, it simultaneously functions as both a PlayStation 3 and PC connector and they're both being caught by Windows under the same name. Regardless, makes setup in certain instances a little bit harder.
Ordering another one but estimate says 3+ weeks for delivery
edit: Ordered two more october 1st and tested them when they got here. one doesn't register at all and unlike in the past the second one registers as a ps3 controler. not a USB joystick controller...subsequently the directional keys won't work which i really need as thats half my hots bars :/ Also when i ordered the first two it did NOT say anything about PS3 compatability. It just stated it was an usb adapter.
