Hello. I recently purchased the Total Control Plus. I own a Soul Caliber II limited edition arcade stick, made by Nuby. Here is a link for more product info: ps2.ign.com/articles/433/433557p1.html.
When I use a regular PS2 controller on my Dreamcast with the TCP adapter, it works fine.
When I use the arcade stick on my PS2, it works fine.
But when I use the arcade stick with my Dreamcast using the TCP adapter, it does not work at all. No response.
I assume this means it won't work, which is disappointing. I did not realize some controllers would not work at all.
Do you not keep a compatibility list, based on user feedback? I would like to know which arcade sticks work with the TCP. I don't want to spend the money buying a new PS2 arcade stick, only to find out it doesn't work with the TCP.
There are too many joypad / Arcade stick in the market, we are not able to test all of them generate a compatible list. Instead, we have the following in-compatible list, according to the feedback of our customers:
I agree that there are too many controllers to test yourself.
Maybe you could include a small card with each adapter, asking the user to email you with their controller brand/model if everything works. It can help you compile user-confirmed compatibility lists. But maybe I'm dreaming.
If any other readers have been using a PS2 arcade stick on their Dreamcast with a Total Control Plus, please let me know which arcade stick you are using!
