Customer Trent R. decided to try an approach that was not documented before: To connect multiple PS360+ multi-console PCBs and control a MAME PC, PS3 console, and gaming PC. Here are notes from his findings:
Connecting consoles and MAME PC
Hi there , just to let you know how I went.
Just to let you know that I connected 2 * PS360+ to a USB hub and then connected the hub to a USB switch which is then connected to my MAME PC, a PS3 and a gaming PC.
The setup works perfectly and it actually retains the order of joysticks (ie. no. 1,2,3 & 4) - as I assume the USB hub powers them on in the same sequential order each time. Therefore I have actually been able to remove my iPac4 as the game input mapping in MAME is retained correctly for each joystick/buttons.
I was surprised that the above worked as there seemed to be limited/no examples I could find on the internet/forums where 4 * ps360+ was used for a 4 player MAME setup to provide for an all-in-one PC/consoles arcade cabinet or fight/arcade stick!
Do you know why people would choose the iPac or another PCB over the PS360+? I know it's more expensive but it provides support for many more consoles.
The PCB is amazing piece of technology !
Analog control for PS3 games that require it
Hi Jaleel, I was doing a little bit of research this morning and started to
re-read the PS360+ Software Manual - long story short, I think I found the
answer and it looks like it does support both digital and analogue
I have copied an excerpt from the Manual below, and as you can see, you can
enter Configuration Mode and choose between either LS, DP or RS - in other
words, Left Stick, Directional Pad or Right Stick !
The more I learn about the PS360+ the more I am amazed by it.
