    Hey guys

    I have just download a cracked version of Test drive unlimited and the game looks very good. I was wondering if anyone knows or HAVE DONE it, moding a Fanatec Speedster 2(or any other wheel) for PS2 use into a USB port for example.

    Any ideas or ways to mod it please post it here.

    Thank you very much.

    original guide, http://www.emulatronia.com/reportajes/directpad/psxeng/index.htm
    i just used the psxpad driver, works well with my ps2 pad, apart from analogue bottons,
    dpadpr50 is used ps and older pads, but may work with the wheel, both drivers picked up both analogue sticks,
    xbox to usb drivers incase you find em useful, one for pad, other for ir control, the cable is fairly easy to make, the wires are same colour as usb cables, ignoring the yellow wire. i made one using one of the controller port from a dead xbox.

    But wait my mobo does not have DB-25 connecter. Is there a way to change it into a USB or PS/2 connecter?
