  • Playstation Emulation in a carputer???

    G'day guys and girls. A quick question... has anyone explored setting up ps one emulation in a car environment? Any success, ideas? I am just throwing this idea around, whether emulation would be better or actually just putting in an actual console? Any luck with any other game systems?

    The second question is about a product I read in an old thread, called Soyo Kiky (PS) Adaptor. It hooks up a ps controller to the usb of your computer. Has anyone had any recent success in using emulation with this. Thanks guys!

    Never really played with it much, as it hurts my head getting it to work, but have a look at Mame World one of my mates from Uni is a big fan, and seems to think the sun shines out of it.

    And you say people actually pay money for M$ Windows?

      Gravis GamePad Pro USB. It is essentially a playstation controller. No need for the adapter.

        I actually have neo geo and capcom emulation in my car setup. Works well...I use a gravis eliminator with it, which is almost like a PS control but with a lil' more flair

            I was thinking of the same thing. Why buy a playstation when there is a perfectly good computer to use. I had made an adapter to hook up Playstation controlers to the parallel port. It shows up as a regular joystick and all 8 buttons are programmable. I was using the MAME arcade emulator and wanted an old time joystick. Electronic boutique had one that was for the playstation. It is a two person full console (about 3 feet wide) just like old stand up video games. Works great. Even the rumble can be used. For the car environment I can use regular playstation controllers. If you do a search for psx to pc you will find the info. It wasn't that hard to build.

              Espxe works pretty damn well. I was palying chrono cross on my laptop. And I used a usb palystatio nand n64 controlelr convertor and worked great too

                ePSXe is the best one I tried.

                Bleem is unreliable, VGS doesn't do any harware graphics acceleration, but ePSXe with all the various plug-ins is fantastic, especially as it's a free product.

                I suggest either the Open GL or the Direct 3D plugs depending on your vid card

                  hook consol type controlers up to a PC via parallel port.

                  I'm using this with a genesis arcade stick right now, and i think im gonna set a SNES controller up this weeked (just got into Final Fantasy, again).

                  Word of caution - don't switch between a controller and a printer... i forgot to unplug the controler and tryed to scan something and it toasted the up/down signals on the arcade stick.

                    Very nice controller. I grabbed two from Best Buy a while back, and they work great. And at $10 each you can't go wrong!
