New: X-Arcade Electronics USB Upgrade Kit
First generation X-Arcade Joysticks only outputted and connected to a Keyboard PS/2 port. With the evolution of the computer industry, these ports have been phased out and most devices connect via USB. All Current generation X-Arcade Joysticks can connect to a computer via Keyboard PS/2 and USB, so this kit will upgrade any 1st generation/older PS-2 Keyboard Only X-Arcade to USB output/connection.
Add USB Support To 1st Generation X-Arcade!
Get yourself the most current generation technology used in the X-Arcade with a kit allowing you to directly connect your X-Arcade to any computer via included USB Cable. The bundle includes both PCB and the USB Cable. You will need to pop open the bottom of the X-Arcade, disconnect the jumper cables from old PCB and replace. The entire process should take about 10 min and requires little or no technical experience.
Upgrade To Current Generation X-Arcade Electronics!
Older model X-Arcades cannot connect via USB, this board includes all electronics and cables to allow you direct connection to any computer's USB port, just like a current generation keyboard. Works With All Previous, Current And Future X-Arcade Adapter Versions (Sold Separately)
What's The Difference Between This And USB Adapter?
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. So if you just want USB support, the USB adapter is the easiest method to achieve it.
Why Does This New Board Have A PS-2 Connection?
This current generation upgrade board can output to a computer with either USB port, or older keyboard PS-2 port. It also has a PS-2 INPUT port for you to connect a PS-2 keyboard to program the X-Arcade. No USB inputs are available.
The OLD PS-2 PCB Required Keyboard Connection, Does The NEW USB One?
The 1st generation X-Arcade PS-2 PCB required a Keyboard connected via the PS-2 Keyboard input to operate. This new version USB PCB DOES NOT REQUIRED any keyboard to be connected to the X-Arcade PCB. You connect directly from the X-Arcade PCB to any available USB port.
How Many X-Arcade Versions Exist?
Only (2) X-Arcade Versions exist, the first generation with PS-2 Only, and the "current" generation used in all X-Arcade sold that have built-in USB support. This kit will upgrade the 1st generation X-Arcade you own to have the same electronics as the current version.
