Ahoy Picade owners, old and new. I’ve been cooking up some alternate firmwares and at this stage I’m pretty confident that on both the Kickstarter Edition and new Picade PCBs we’ll have:
- Playstation 3 Support
- HID Joystick Support
I’m hoping to also get PS4 compatibility, but I don’t have one to test against so this wont happen quickly.
Unfortunately Xbox 360 support is currently impossible, so I’m shelving that for now.
Please take care when flashing your Picade with my crazy prototype firmwares.
Playstation 3 Experimental Firmware
( new only, still need to come up with sensible bindings for the Kickstarter edition which I think I’ve got wired up all wrong )
You can download the experimental firmware to make the new Picade PCB behave like an Playstation 3 controller here: http://pi.gadgetoid.com/picade_ps3.hex
To flash this firmware, name it “picade.hex” and stick it alongside the updater script from the GitHub repository: https://github.com/pimoroni/Picade-Sketch/tree/master/update
Run the updater, and your Picade should become a PS3 controller.
HID Joystick Expeirmental Firmware
