100k is way too high. Try what god_of_cpu suggests which is around 500 ohms. That should work much better.
Curiosity, did you have any better luck with the Belkin adapter?
Ok I've just read this whole thread and I just want to check I've got things right in my head.
I have a laptop based car pc so gameport is not an option.. it must be usb.
Am I right in thinkin I can get one of these: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/DUAL-ACTION-DI...QQcmdZViewItem
and simply wire up my cars steering wheel button line into one of the analog sticks - I understand that there are extra resistors etc too.. but I want to check I have got the basic understanding before I buy a gamepad.
Yes, that should work. I used a USB gamepad first, and it worked reasonably well.
Thanks Curiosity.. I've just purchased one of those pads
Are there any diagrams around on how to wire this up, I was looking last night and most of the links were dead
Any advice would be most welcome!
Figure out which is input 0. It should be the left up/down. The pot connected to it is usually a 10K. Check it with a meter to find the ground and +5V on the outside pins, and the center tap is the input. Then just remove it and solder some wires there, or put the resistors there and wires.
Thanks man, I'm glad we have people like you around here who know what they are doing
I'll have a play around once the pad arrives..
