Hack the Ben Heck Access controller

[Ben Heck], in a display of true hacker spirit, has released a tutorial on how to mod the Access Controller. We have been waiting for it, but we can’t help but commend the detail he goes into. He lists pinouts, as well as digi-key part numbers for various replacement parts. Great job as usual [ben].

    This hacking guide seems to indicate that this controller treats all of the buttons as digital switches? The PS2 controller has analog buttons (not sure about the PS3), which would make some games impossible to play with this controller.

    Can you name a game where this “feature” is useful?

    I have only ever experienced analog buttons on an Xbox, and I didn’t like it at all.

    BTW, it looks like it goes through a USB adapter anyway, so I don’t think Analog buttons are supported.

    Very cool device, so sad that it had to be wireless instead of cheap, or that there couldn’t be a second cheap wired version.

    There was one rpg I played that changed your attack depending on how hard you pushed the button..

    Star Ocean: Till the End of Time maybe..

    Before playing that I never even knew the buttons were analog

    Metal Gear Solid 2 used the analog buttons.

    If you lightly held the fire button, you would aim your weapon (and could use it to hold enemies hostage, aim better, etc)

    If you pressed harder, you would fire.
