As requested, here are some more photos which hopefully show more clearly how the controller connects and shows the modified (shortened) USB cable. You can see in 07052008199.resized.jpg just how the black plastic casing of the USB cable holds the lip of the CF blanking slot in place.

Man, I so wish the USB port alone could handle the weight and stress of something like this. I could sooo use this for my UX but I don't have the CF version and it seems like the EDGE modem version has that little SIM slot cover that would get in the way of a CF blank attachment.

How come you got a refund, was it that bad ?

Thanks for the pics those look great, once my UX gets back from repair I may start working on this, first I will look where I can get this controller from. Question, did you make that USB cable from the one that came with the controller or different one ?

No, sorry... I got a refund because they are out of production.... despite the site showing as "in stock" they are not!

And yes, the cable is a shortened version built from the one it came with. That was the fiddliest part... not hard though!

me dragging up this thread again.

This looked really nice. Here is my experience, is cannot compare to what you have, but it relates to "gaming on the UX".

Back then I always wanted a PSP, but I also wanted a gamepad for the PC so I can sit back and play my favorite game without using the keyboard, I can't buy both, so I got a PSP in the end.

Then I found online a homebrew software called PSPDisp, it basically converts your PSP to a PC monitor, plus the software has a semi-joystick function, configuring the PSP buttons corresponding the keyboard.

I give this software a try, and I was happy with it. I liked PSP's handling, and sitting back using my PSP to play what I liked to play is definitely a nice treat. You can use the USB cable, which is a traditional joystick experience, or using WIFI, which is a wireless controller experience. You can also use it as a remote monitor as long as you have WIFI.

I can do the same on the UX since it can run Windows, the troubling part is configuring the buttons, you need to create a text file using a specific template, and the key mapping rule is very strict, if you make a tiny mistake in the text file, nothing will work. Since this uses keyboard as commands and not an actual joystick, it can be very flexible in configuring the buttons.
