Im trying to figure out exactly which accessories do and which accessories dont use it. I KNOW the light guns do. I thought the steering wheels did, but now i dont. Im not sure about dancepads. All input is appreciated.


thanks,
mario

Well after doing mine and testing my steering weel and light gun,neither worked in it,but I expected that after reading the totorials tongue.gif

It isnt a big problem becouse I only did it on my first controle port,and If I want to use the lightgun or steering weel I just plug it into my second controler port and it works a 100%

the yellow wire is used for additional power only, correct? can anyone think of any other accessories that might use the yellow wire? what about those damn dance pads?

i'm pretty sure the pads dont use the yellow wire... technically, they are just a big d-pad...

I was always told that the yellow wire feeds composite video so the light guns would know what they were supposed to be shooting at. I don't know how that fits with stearing wheels though cause I have also heard romurs that certain ones need the yellow wire. As far as I can tell the yellow wire is not additional power. It is certainly not the same +12V that the HD cable yellow wire is. Either way, the communicator will still work and I know this for a fact cause I have tested it myself.
