Saturn/PSX Adapter recommends?

Recommended Posts

Guest kodec

Hi all,

I'm looking for an controller adapter to use with Kawa-x and Mameox. I was thinking of using the Magic Box adapter. Has anyone tried this already with the emulators? Any caveats? Specifically looking for any problems with compatibility or lag time. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

kodec

There are 2 adapters that I found work with PSX controllers on kawa with no lag. I got them both form Fry's Electronics. One is madcatz and the other says Total control on it. They both were about $12 and they both work with Xbox and gamecube. If U don't have a Fry's try Outpost.com it is their online store.

I just picked up a Magic Box from Lik-Sang and it is awesome. There is no noticeable input lag etc.

 

I highly recommend this product.

I have the magic box too, and the only thing I have noticed is that the Saturn 3-D control pads do not work, not even in digital mode, and neither do the new ps2 Street Fighter control pads, it acts as if the back button is being pressed repeatedly.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I got the Magic box and it works great so far when playing with Kawa-X. There was one problem though and that is when using a PS2 controller with the Magic Box, the R3 and L3 buttons do not appear to be mapped. This makes it impossible it seems to exit a game in Kawa-X since you have to click R3 to bring up the menu. Any ideas why the R3 and L3 don't work on the PS2 controller? The instructions it came with did indicate they were mapped.

 

Is my adapter defective? Did anyone else have this problem?

I had the same problem. I usually just leave a standard xbox controller in port 2 for exiting games..and for coins when using a Saturn pad. All in all, I like the magic box..I recently got my hori fighting stick and I noticed a butt-load of lag..kinda weird.
