    I managed to find myself fooling with roms and emulators again. Did it a while back for the DC, but just got into MAME and love playing Metal Slug and SNK games. Anyway, I need a gaming pad and my buddy suggested the PS2 to USB trick. I saw some around, but I dont know any good brands/quality and where to buy it at. I want to try to keep the price as low as possible since Im broke as a joke right now, but still want to pull those crazy combos on Marvel Vs Capcom.

    Thnaks guys.

    Tons on eBay. I got a pretty good one for less than $10 shipped.

    Yup. I have no clue who made mine... just that there was some interesting Engrish on the package.

    I can ask my buddy how he did it but he made a USB controller for his computer out of an xbox controller. Both PS2 and Xbox controllers speak USB its just the plugs that are diffrent. He mad two of them for like 10 bucks.
