FWIW, I've read in multiple places recently that the actual joysticks wear out very quickly on the X-Arcade stuff, so you might have been better off being unable to use it ;-)

ok, i can't get a free or paid adaptor from spanish shop.
also, i tried as last resort, to connect the x-solo to a simple usb hub and to the mac and even connect it on a fresh leopard 10.5.4 install. both still freeze my system with the applehid.plugin. without it, it freezes all the same whenever i launch an app. have to connect it after i launch the app.
my original cable must be definately screwed.

still would like to know if someone has any luck with the x-gaming adaptor.
i'll probably have to sell it.

Eh? What would compel you to do that? I saw countless ads of auto-backup so you never have to do "that PC" operation again.

Good luck re-selling the Mac then! grin
Does this hardware allow you to try an "alternate OS" (live or install), like Sony PS3 does? smirk

Review the thread - TFA is trolling on behalf of X-Gaming and their moronic firmware mis-coders smile

That said, AFAIK both Fedora 11 and Win7 will boot directly on EFI hardware without Boot Camp.

dude, i don't know one person who has ever swicthed from mac to pc. with all the headaches that the mac has spared me since i moved from pc, i could even just throw the x-arcade to the trash. alternate os? i have amiga os on my mac but why the hell do i need an alternate os to play my os x games?

meanwhile, anyone had any luck with ps/2 to usb adapter? maybe the ps/2 end of the cable is not screwed as the usb.

X-Arcade released an updated circuit board that should work with Macs. It sells for $29.90 and you must open your X-Arcade to replace the old board.
