could work if I could find an adapter. I really doubt I could find a
USB one for this configuration. I would need it before HOPE hopefully
:). Its for a MAME keyboard hack, which I could do with a standard
keyboard, but mapping out the matrix is a PITA.
I used to do that too when making MAME arcades, but that gets old
really fast. Because the pinout for the switch matrix is never the same
between the different brands of keyboards. What I use now anytime I do
this is hookup an I-PAC 2
module, it gives you 28 switch lines(keys). It's all software
configurable, plugs into the PS2 jack and then I just hookup the same
ol' arcade buttons to this. Here's a link if your interested for this , there also several
other different models to try. http://www.ultimarc.com/JShopServer/section.php?xSec=2
