Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[XBOX] Using active usb extender on xbox WIRED controler
Heya, hopefully this is the right place, was not sure if it should be under just technology or games and technology, if its wrong I apologies and ask mod to move it please.
Now to my problem, me and some friends are going to hire a movie theater to play games in, mostly, we're going to play fight games like SSF4:AE and MK9. Now we got our nice and snassy SF4:TE sticks, the problem is they are wired.
The other problem, which one could say is the actuall problem, is in the theater, from where the xbox will be connected to the system, to where we will actually sit is quite a bit further then the cord from the xbox is.
Have anyone tried using an active USB extender to extend their cabling from the arcade stick to the actuall xbox? I've been eying up some 10m cables that would be perfect for this, but I dont know if they work, and I kinda want to know this before I throw down the money and proceed with this plan.
Does anyone have any experience in using cable extension on xbox controllers in general and arcade sticks in particular?
