xim2 with xfps on ps3
« on: 04:39 AM - 02/13/13 »
Hi guys, I have seen videos of the xim2 being used with a bog standard xfps on a ps3, but have also heard it doesn't work. Who is right and is there an alternavite other than cross battle adapter plus ? Thanks .

Welcome to the community. It's been awhile since I've seen discussions about Xbox -> PS3 adapters, but, I remember many people being successful with GTMax.

gtmax is a lot cheaper than xfps and does the job a little bit better
some gtmax can be bought from ebay or amazon for 6-8$

yup. the general consensus back in the day was the gtmax was superior to anything else.

Thanks for the feedback, sorry a little late getting back to you, kids are ill again. Anyways, comparing the GTMax to the crossbattle adapter plus, which is better or more to the point, which is more sensitive to settings changes from the xim software and which has the lowest latency ( if they have such ) ?
 if I have put this post in the wrong section my apologies.

gtmax is the best you can buy
the crossbattle adapter plus was once the best if i recall correctly, but that doesnt matter a lot anymore as gtmax gives the better output now

Thanks again, so I take it that this item ( the links are for amazon and ebay and are safe , sorry if I am not supposed to do this )

http://www.amazon.com/GTMax-Controller-Converter-Adapter-Cable/dp/B00452D50G

is the same as this item ?

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PS2-To-PS3-Xbox-360-Controller-Converter-Adapter-Cable-/140914417062?pt=UK_Video_Games_Cables_and_Adaptors&hash=item20cf275da6

The latter one has a switch from xbox to ps3 and seems exactly the same as the gtmax but it isn't called that. Just want to make sure as I want to make a 'cheap' transition to ps3. Not only that I prefer to use ebay. Thanks for any light anyone can shed on this.  ;)

the gtmax is sold under lots of names, its the shape that lets you identify it ;)
another name its sold under is "HDE Playstation Adapter"

Thanks for that obsiv, finally got and fixed up a ps3 and got a gtmax, works sweet apart from that grounding issue where you can hear the xim controller light beep, although disconnecting the communicator cable from the controller makes it a lot fainter . Would supressors or noise reducers on the usb cable help further ?

worth a try, but its much cheaper to just replace the gtmax adapter
you can buy gtmax for 3-4 usually, and a well made unit doesnt have the ground problem

also maybe its your controller, you should use an official microsoft controller if possible

Its an original xbox controller, I have only just got the gt max adapter, works fine as long as you connect them in the right sequence on start up. the beeping is not that much of a problem, the continuous sounds of players deaths will drown it out :D
