Long story short: this adapter seems to have a short lifespan and although it worked great with HORIs, reviews seem to indicate that this adapter sucked for its original purpose: Guitar Hero. And thus, it was discontinued several weeks ago.

I suggest finding a new adapter for the plethora of HORI users we seem to have at Melty Bread... (I'm gonna try the one from USER'S SIDE because they're JP)

So does anyone know a good, alternative USB adapter? I'm thinking of getting a HORI at some point, but it wouldn't be nearly as useful when I can't use it on my computer.

Has anyone here used other adapters such as this one? - http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-6m-77-4-49-en-15-usb-70-qc2.html

Anyone know what Korean or Japanese players use for their converters?

Or, can go find out?

Obviously, they don't need to use practice mode at all!

On a second note, Japanese combo videos also never use practice mode!

Japanese usually use the arcade for training. For japanese combo videos they probably use a usb pad or something, or a ps3/xb360 stick.

Japanese players don't need training mode; they're born with perfect execution DURRRRRRRR.

Actually, I would figure they would use Elecom adapters, as that was the brand I found floating around mainly when it was first an issue (when the PS3 first came out, before Pelican released their adapter).

For what it's worth, nearly every single IaMP player uses a USB Saturn pad.

So I got a nifty Elecom converter @User's Side.  Seems to work fine with my HRAP2.  I can do my Arc 4B relaunch combos.

Oh, and if we're doing Queen's Blade, I call Airi. :3
If you live in NorCal, you can pick up Elecoms @USER'S SIDE, an electronics store next to Mitsuwa, a Japanese supermarket. Directions can be found here: http://www.users-side.co.jp/USA_WEB/mapsj.htm

Just want to ask whether HRAP 3 is plug and play and can it be recognize by window? If not then is there a converter that can be use with it?
I am quite interested to get one HRAP 3 but i am not sure whether it will work.

I heard from Jason Wilson that Pelican was forced to stop manufacturing the converters because of a lawsuit from Sony. They're working on something else but those in the know are aware that a component in the Pelican that Sony had copyrighted was responsible for the zero-lag response in the converters. Hopefully an alternative can be found.

Just pray that the next one still costs $15.... but if it's official sony, I wouldn't hold my breath.

Seems Pelican was dethroned.

REAL PS2/PS3 Converter
http://sdtekken.com/tech-area/converters/real-ps2ps3-converter/real-ps2ps3-converter-review/

Summary
Features:

    * PS3 Analog Support
    * Power Management
    * Power On/Off Controller
    * Power On/Off PS3 Console
    * Memory Card Management
    * Quit the game when playing
    * Assign controller to different port
    * Convert all the PS2 controllers to be used on PS3/PC/Mac
    * Easy and convenient to use, simply hot-plug the PC USB socket and install the driver, then it works perfectly
    * Real vibration feedback function
    * Both digital & analog modes are available
    * Support all the vibration types
    * Compatible with Windows Vista, Windows 98SE, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and the newest versions of Windows XP together with Direct X 7.0a or above

"Both converters ranged on average between the low 1s with 1.25 frames being the low and 1.375 frames being the high. Now all these numbers may be a bit overwhelming and may sound confusing to you. Just know that through this testing it shows that the REAL converter is as consistent as the Pelican ones when it comes to inputs.

Ultimately, I have to pass the converter crown for fighting games to the REAL PS2/PS3 converter as it does everything the Pelican one does and more. Length wise they are about the same, and they also both have LED indicator lights as well as the much needed PS/Home button. One advantage the REAL converter has is that it supports vibration feature wheras the Pelican does not."
