I just got the Lowrider game for PS2 today and I'm thinking of making a switch box for it. It's actually very simple all you need is a PS1 or PS2 controller and just wire switches from the controller board like shown here.

So, your soldering the wires, to where you press down on the controller buttons? That seems like itll work.

It will work for sure, I know this because I have already done something similar with a computer game controller and it worked. I made actual arcade joysticks and buttons work from a hacked up computer game controller, from using the method shown in the photos. If I do make a switch box for the PS2 I would like to make the box universal, so it can be used for model cars as well.

Plexi glass would be the $h!t. I know of a plastic supply shop near by where I can by sheets of Plexi glass. But first I need to find the right switches. I need ones that are momentary, ones that will spring back to the off position when you let go of the switch.

Radioshack does not carry SPDT center off toggles. I worked there for a long time. But many hobby shops do, and tons of electronic surplus stores have them. Good luck

Cool, thanks for the info. I knew about the project boxes, they sell them at Radioshack ( not in clear plastic though). And I'll start looking for those switches when I get off of work today.
