I know this may be a old mod but i would like to mod one of my playstation dual shock controllers to use on my computer. I have a spare usb cable hanging around and a controller left over from when i sold my playstation. Is there anyplace that has a mod and drivers? Ive looked but I cant find.Anyhelp would be nice (thanks)

Well i had a look at the conversion process for a Playstation gamepad to usb connector and unless you are an electronic whizz give it up its way too difficult to do.

The other alternative is to buy a USB adapter like the one Here but at that price you may as well buy a new joypad.

If anyone else has a simple method of conversion without spending cash;) i would too like to know.

Thanks All I had seen the xbox controller mod so I just figured someone somewhere had done it to a sony controller.. ahh well looks like im doomed to buy a adapter or just get a new controller I allways liked the psx controller for gameing so i thought it might be easy to mod one. guess i was wrong..

actually I think it said
Disadvantages

You will only be able to use it in Windows games, since driver it is programmed for DirectX.

If you want to use the dual-shock you will need an external power supply, or steal power from inside the computer.

The connection goes to the parallel port, which means that if you are going to use the printer you change connectors... but it is worth the trouble!

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
