I bought a converter off of ebay here:
When I tried it, the d-pad works perfectly but the buttons don’t register unless you press them hard. Rapidly tapping the button for example usually won’t register at all unless you’re pressing really hard.
I know my controllers aren’t broke because I can use them on my pc with a ps2>usb converter and the buttons register fine without any hard presses.
Also I know my xbox is not borked since the s-pad buttons register fine.
So does anyone have any experience with this converter? I suppose I could have gotten a damaged one but I guess it’s just not a worthwhile converter. Shame too since it had a xbox live port.
I know the magic box is what everyone says to get, but I don’t want to pay 40$+ for an adapter.
So here’s the technical question: Since this adapter seems to work perfectly fine but the buttons only register after a hard press, would this adapter work better on a custom stick? I’m going to buy one soon but the adapter issue is pretty important to me since I play on xbox and only need it to work on ps2 if I eventually go to a tournament (god willing I become worthy enough:P)
Or is there something I can do to get these ps2 controllers to work with the adapter better? I’m getting a stick but I’d sure rather be playing on a ps2 pad right now instead of the xbox s-pad.
And i’m referring to the original xbox, I don’t own a 360.
Also if you know a good stick deal that might meet my requirements check my other thread about stick advice which is still on the top page and let me know.
