ps2 controller converted to mouse and keyboard
ps2 controller converted to mouse and keyboard –
I wanted to know if anyone ever converted their ps2 controller to a mouse and keyboard. The reason I wanted to do this is because there are great FPS games coming out and I cant stand the ps2 controller. The usb mouse and keyboard only works on some games.
For example: The X button will be (space bar) the square button will be (shift), the direction pad will be (WSAD) and so on.
The only problem is the mouse, Im not sure how the mouse works.
Please give me some feedback.
I think that'd be much more trouble than it's worth...
no, i actaully belive it would be quite easy...
1) get a keyboard (and potentially a controller - an old psx one will work)you don't mind hacking to bits
2) repeat this for every key:
eg - the X key.
solder the 2 terminals of the X key to 2 seperate wires. connect this wires upto the back of the SPACEBAR key on your keyboard, in a fassion that when you press the space key, the metal contact bridges the 2 wires... it's hard to explain.
the  is the contact on the bottom of the spacebar. it will bridge the 2 wires going to X, which will in efffect be like pressing the X button.
so finally, your system will look like this:
good luck on getting the mouse to work tho!!

first off, I kind of was implying the mouse as the difficult part. As you can't just pcik points and solder. However, assuming he does get them to work, neither would ever really be usuable on the PC again. (Well, they would, but you know what I mean.)
