    I'm in the process of buying a second-hand DC Arcade Stick off someone, so I can get some decent control in Ikaruga. However, with things like Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 EO, Soul Calibur 2 and indeed Ikaruga coming to the Gamecube, I'd love to be able to get a converter to use it there, and it would certainly improve the playing of Mame on the PC as well.

    So, does anyone know of any DC Stick -> Other Things converters? I know PS -> PC exists, but I've not found any DC ones.

    There's this converter for the PC but I can't find anything to let you use a DC controller on the PS2.

    Thanks for the link - I'll keep searching for a Cube option as well, which is the main one I need.

    I did a lot of research on DC converters. The best converter for Dreamcast I found was one that converted Saturn, PSX, and PC keyboard to Dreamcast (See ign coverage here: http://gear.ign.com/articles/59206p1.html
    There is also a dream connection 5-in-1 that takes a memory card as well, but it is near-impossible to find (there is one place in the UK that has them). If you find something that will convert Dreamcast to Gamecube or vice versa, yell out, I would jump at it, but I don't think you'll have a lot of luck. =0 Good luck!
