    Default NEGCON on HD

    Negcon use on hd may very well be possible, if you are good with electronics, which I am not. I plugged in a few playstation to pc adaptors into the ps3 just to try and see. What I got was a mixed bag. At first I couldn't get the negcon to select, but then I plugged in the madcatz wheel, that has digital, and negcon settings on it, so I could switch between the two. I got into the game, and this was what I discovered. The twist does work for steering, but somewhat odd, in that there are not as many degrees of movement(which isn't bad), but the real problem was having to turn the negcon too far to the left or right to get the movement you wanted. Someone with the Knowhow, could probably tighten the negcon up. The second problem was that only 4 buttons out of the 6 worked. button 1 and 2 controlled the pitch (the dpad did as well, and even turned too). I am sure someone could figure the button config out as well, in that you only need really 5 buttons, 6 if you like to look back. Back to the dpad for me though, until I can find a wheel that works.

    ON a side note, the expensive logitech wheel without the pedals was ASS, in that it wouldn't turn until you hit 40 degrees. I am sure the one with the foot pedals is the same. An older version does the same thing unfortunately, since there was button relocation on that one. Anyone know of a wheel that you can set twist sensitivity to wherever you want?

    omg, if someone could get this to work we could have something brilliant on our hands...

    i cant use the PS controllers analog sticks, im far too used to the 360 ones being in a superior position (lol, fanboy bait)

    one doesnt even have a ps3 to play HD on anymore, had to give my friends one back, so it doesnt apply to me anywho.

    Wow, Jabberjaw, you are a man on a mission

    I'm amazed that this worked at all.

    So, six buttons for Asayyeah, five for everybody else?

    Really amazing that you got it to work, Al, even if it wasn`t perfect. Rear view freezes the game online anyway, so if there`s no button for it it`s no big deal. It sounds close..... and maybe the dpad could do pitch and also activate Barrel Rolls while the twist takes car of the steering.

    the problem is that hardware is controled with assembly so there will be an interactive driver in the game or ps3 fw or both that needs to be moded

    prehaps we can wait for the ps3 to be hacked

    Al i know you can do it : your famous last-year- sentence " there's no reason to not find a solution" is spot on.
    All my best wishes for that tricky mission !

    Nah lets hope that doesn't happen, I don't want the integrity of the game destroyed just so some select few people can use a Neggie on PS3.

    There is this wheel a lot of hardcore racers use, but it is expensive. It might work, and the paddles might be able to work for air brakes, and the red buttons for pitch.

    The best wheel control system for WipeOut would actually not be a racing wheel at all. It would most likely be a Yoke

    Then add this for airbrakes, since airbrakes in WipeOut work as rudders. Turning the craft, and the stick is for roll.

    I agree, I've seen this controller before and for me personally physically I can't use it. It's hard enough for me when playing racing games online competing with guys using Logitech G25's. When my only option is for the PS3 controller, or when I play Live for Speed a XBox 360 controller hooked to my MacPro running bootcamp.
