You could come up with drop-in replacement PCBs for certain popular control pads that give J-PC compatibility, tiny boards that would serve as easy-to-make VGA-to-JRGB-15 adaptors, and maybe even clone the XSIMMVI (an easier task then you think, there's like one TTL chip on the thing).

Quote from: eidis on May 22, 2012, 05:33:12 am Thank you Lydux for the heads up. x68key2 entries have been removed to avoid further confusion. While we are at it, the following web page might be of interest to you http://kum.dyndns.org/works/mouse/index.htmlKeep the scene alive !EidisP.S. You wouldn't happen to be secretly developing a X68000 SOC ?
Quote from: BlueBMW on July 15, 2014, 02:03:54 amI got some premade boards from a guy on neo-geo forums. Not sure how many he made but they do make assembly a lot easier than a generic project board.

Quote from: lydux on July 29, 2014, 02:11:29 amThese x68k <-> USB keyboards converters are liars... Most USB keyboards are able to talk PS2 protocols nativelly. So these converters just output a female USB plug instead of the mini DIN 6 (PS2) which is a good idea in fact ! USB plugs are cheaper, and every keyboards are USB nowadays anyway.USB to PS2 wiring :Code Select Expand USB PS2 GND (black) <===> GND (3) Data+ (green) <===> Clock (5) Data- (white) <===> Data (1) +5v (red) <===> +5v (4)I've personnally built a single chip x68k keyboard converter using an attiny45 in SOP8 package (about 5mm x 5mm IC). It's so small that it can fit directly inside the keyboard (a miniature one for instance), and I do have changed the USB male plug to a mini DIN 7 for the x68k (only 4 wires are needed on the x68k side, so the coord is still the same). Less than $5 solution !I'll try to put some pictures.I also would like to put the source code and microcode, but I need your help guys : I can't really determine of an ideal key mapping... So, I leave this to you and listening !
