The Playstation Soul Calibur IV controller for the PS3 reportedly works flawlessly on PS3 Linux / sdlmame. I don't have one (yet) but it looks nice!

I got that controller in today, and yes it works perfectly in Linux (YDL 6 / PS3) for sdlmame...

Code:
jstest /dev/input/js0
Joystick (HORI CO.,LTD. FIGHTING STICK 3) has 6 axes and 13 buttons. Driver version is 2.1.0.


In addition to the 13 buttons (8 large ones next to the stick + 5 small ones across the top) there's a turbo button with slow/normal/fast modes. You just hold down the turbo button then press the button you want to have in turbo mode.

I just had to try this in Track'n'Field (trackfld). When I got to the javelin throw part I fouled and threw the javelin so high it showed up on the bottom of the screen, then fell back down from the top! LOL didn't know it would do that! laugh

Yes, just plug it in and it works ... you still have to configure it in sdlmame by hitting the TAB key and setting the buttons & axes the way you want them under Configure General Inputs (or input->this game while a game is running), just like with the Sixaxis. wink

step 1 - buy a hori real arcade pro 3
step 2 - swap the buttons out with Sanwa reed switches
step 3 - never have to buy another joystick ever again

That looks very similar to the "HORI CO.,LTD. FIGHTING STICK 3" I have, though it appears to cost about twice as much. I wonder what the differences are, if any (aside from a slightly different button layout)?

The Arcade Pros use real arcade parts (such as the Sanwa stick) and are also designed to have easily replacable parts. All the Fighting Sticks' parts are moulded in and are nigh-impossible to custom. The standard Hori buttons are a bit meh but replacing with reed switches gives you the best stick, well, ever. Also it's quite a bit bigger, I believe.

Holy crap, a Sanwa stick? That is a high-quality peripheral. smile
