Ipac mame pc & ps3 with ps/2 switch
02/19/12 09:03 AM




Hi there...

Looking for some advice from some of the resident experts pls :-)

I already have a mame cab, setup with an ipac ps/2 and a VGA CRT monitor. Which I mainly use for fighting games.

What I want to do is add in my PS3 and make the process of switching between PC and PS3 work by the flick of a switch.

This was my plan :-

1) Have the i-pac connector to my two player happ sticks etc (already set up)
2) Connect a PS/2 & VGA switch to my i-pac and CRT monitor
3) Connect the first PS/2 output from the switch to my PC and the VGA to my GFX card
4) Connect the second PS/2 output from the switch to the i-pac PS3 console adapter (ordered from Ultimarc)
5) Connect the PS3 HDMI to a HDFury -> VGA adapter and connect to the second VGA output

Will this work? The main concern I have is re: the PS/2 switch, I am not sure if it will be capatible with the i-pac.

This is the i-pac PS3 console adapter I have bought from ultimarc :-

And this is the switch I am looking at :-
