BUTTONS/JOYS:
The X-Arcade USB cable for the buttons/joys is very sensitive and cannot be extended with just a standard USB extension cable. Instead use an active USB Repeater Extension Cable.

You can also extend the cable when using the PS/2 connection by getting either a longer serial cable, by connecting two of our serial cables together using a DB9F-DB9F Gender Changer, or by using a PS/2 extension cable.

TRACKBALL:
Cables for the Trackball can be extended with a standard USB extension cable.

CONSOLE ADAPTERS:
You can extend the serial cable for use with one of our console X-adapters with either a longer serial cable or by connecting two of our serial cables together using a DB9F-DB9F Gender Changer.
