What's The Difference Between This And PCB Upgrade?
This is an external USB Adapter which connects to the X-Arcade's included game console serial cable. You only need connect this cable to the adapter, then to your USB port for USB support. The USB PCB Upgrade is a replacement electronics board and requires you to open your X-Arcade to replace your old board with the current generation version (which has USB support). Which one should you buy? If you buy the USB PCB upgrade, you'll have the most current electronics in all X-Arcades and have USB support. If you buy the USB Adapter, you don't need to open anything up, but can add USB support to an older X-Arcade. Both work with all versions of X-Arcade and all versions of adapters.
NO PS-2 Keyboard Required
The 1st generation X-Arcade PS-2 PCB required a Keyboard connected via the PS-2 Keyboard input to operate. This new version USB ADAPTER DOES NOT REQUIRE any keyboard to be connected to the X-Arcade PCB. You connect directly from the X-Arcade PCB to this adapter, then to any available USB port.
