Re: X.-arcade trouble with laptop (PS/2 connnection)
03/01/11 12:57 AM


Okay, there's definitely something wrong with my laptop or its PS/2 port.

I got together the pieces of an old one player X-arcade and stuck them back together only connecting the joystick nothing else. I played 1941 for a few minutes just dodging bullets and again it got stuck several times.

Plugged the same stick in to my main PC and had no trouble whatsoever, dodged bullets for around 20 minutes without one single hickup.

Plugged an old joy pad into my laptop and played Mame fine without any problems with the joy pad.

So now the question is: is it a PS/2 thing, or is it a keyboard thing? If it's the PS/2 port, then I can just get a USB iPAQ and I'm sorted.

However if it has some sort of trouble with multiple repeated keypresses, then I'm completely out of luck and I guess I will need some sort of joy pad hack for my arcade stick.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can find out what seems to be the trouble on the laptop?

if I play on the keyboard connected through the X arcade I have no trouble. But if I play on the X arcade itself the controls keep sticking. Shouldn't the signals sent to the port be the exact same? And seeing that the X arcade seems to work fine in all other PCs no I'm really not sure how to interpret my test results.

Cheers
