  1. I see what appears to be part of an xBox 360, the ROL actually. Could someone enlighten me as to what it does for this build?

    1. That’s the radio that talks to xbox 360 wireless controllers. If you supply them with 3.3v, they act as a USB wireless controller receiver.

  2. More information can be found on the wireless 360 receiver module from the xbox here : http://forums.xbox-experts.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4029 In the zip file contains a .txt with all the possible commands that the module can receive. Sadly the module cannot tell you if controllers are connected.

    Here is my version of converting a module for pc use :

    It uses an atmega32u2 , with 2 switches one to trigger the sync , and another that will turn off all connected controllers. Both boards are soldered together, then glued to a 5 1/4″ faceplate, a molex connector connects it to the onboard USB of my pc.

    But the original reason for my post was, even though NES and SNES are old , isn’t carrying 700 games , especially to a public meeting, breaking copyrights? With the HaD logo just below.

    Its not that I am against this, because I will admit I have those 700 nes / snes games on my own pc, but isn’t it a bit of a touchy matter?
