Title: Jaguar Controller Inline USB
Post by: Saturn on September 04, 2015, 22:51:53 PM
Just in case it hasn't been seen. I bought 4 of them on day 1 and being able to use my Jag pad with pc oriented games is a dream come true. I'd emailed Raphnet back in December of 2014 about him adding his other version to a controller for me. He said he was working on these and I offered to send him controllers for testing. The rest is history.

Finally, can use all 17 buttons on a pc 8)  He's been at this for some time and I'm glad since I don't solder and can't really use the kit he offered before. These will come in very handy, especially as advances are made w/ vj.

This has great potential for using one of the rotary controllers with MAME, I would guess.  If I end up buying one I will test this and report back, or if you have a rotary controller I'd be interested to hear your experience, Saturn.

I've mainly used the standard pad with mine and its worked flawlessly. I did test out a Pro Controller and it worked fine too. (since there's only the mapping difference for the extra buttons, I'd expected it to anyway) I haven't tried a rotary yet but will dig one out when time allows and give it a spin :) Will also keep watching here to check your report if you get to it before me.

I couldn't agree more. Been a life saver for me personally 8) (life saver may be a little extreme :p)


Tested this out in Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 LTS (http://http) and it works like a charm. Plugged it in, waited a few seconds for the OS to find & install drivers, then configured/used it in an emu. Absolutely incredible.
