Steel Battalion Controller Converter

Recommended Posts

I've picked up a chatpad, just updating the ogx360 firmware to parse the buttons correctly. Going good! I think this will work fine. I think I've got everything I need to get this going!

Currently working:
The console thinks a Steel Battalion controller is connected. This was the hardest part in my opinion. Everything else is just testing and time.
Steel Battalion game registers inputs, including analog joysticks. pedals and digital buttons

Need to do:
Finish off Chatpad support (complete)


Easy way to configure buttons for end users so you can configure it how you prefer.


Some way to representthe LED lights, gear stick position etc.


Integrate into current firmware so you can switch between a Duke Controller and Steel Battalion Controller (complete)

That's awesome. Thank you, it all will help. Enjoy your vacation 😁

 

Perfect! Thank you. Hopefully it works and look forward to seeing some test results! 

got my controller, just have to reflash a SD card for my pitaya and test to make sure the controller works then I can start reading the buttons.

are you guys in the process of reading the buttons?

Yep I've got it working mostly with some guess work. There's a couple more things I would like to confirm with the enumeration process between the console and the endpoint descriptors.

I havnt got LED feedback working yet either, but the game is fully playable on my xbox with my version of the game with the wireless xbox360 controller and chatpad :) (beat the first few missions already!)

Id rather not just guess the protocol until it works because what works for me may not work for everyone! Some hard data from a real SB controller will give me alot more confidence.

I still need to test Steel Battalion Line of Contact too. Sitting back playing games for 'testing' is the best part 9_9

What about some gameplay footage?

Yep definitely will do that soon.

Here's the current button mapping. Its obviously not going to be as immersive/intuitive as the real thing but certainly an option for those of us who dont own the real thing. They're roughly in the same locations as the real controller and I have it printed out as a cross reference and after a while I dont even need to look at it.

You rely more on the feedback from the game cockpit itself. Like if you're on fire you can tell and you must be press extinguisher.

And the gears etc. are displayed in the cockpit too so you have to rely on that instead of the LEDs on the controller

      Is anyone interested in an partly working orange Madcatz controller. It is wireless, the rubber is in bad condition, the case is good though. One rumble motor need to be soldered, the triggers needs to be pushed hard to get them to max and it is dismantled. It comes with the receiver and all parts.
       
      I have no idea on price, so open for offers if anyone is interested. Shipping must be covered by buyer, and tbh it can be a bit expensive from here.

      I'm interested in converting the original wired "S" controller into a wireless controller using the guts of an off brand wireless controller like a Logitech. To anyone's knowledge has this been done before or at least something similar?
