Take a look guys, enjoy this early prototype pad
Yes! There should be a half speed variant too. ??BTW very nice pads the Grey one is fairly early and was most definitely an alpha marlin controller. Should also be 1/2 speed it was used on the marlin development kits ver1 not 2. They actually came with those kits if I'm not mistaken, Iv seen them pop up loose and together before but it's not often congratulations on both! ?And my other controller, this one is a little odd. Its the only DS4 I've ever seen. Has anyone ever seen another?
It's the speed that the system runs at, a 3/4 until will for example run at 3/4 the speed compared to a retail kit, the marlin development kit was a 3/4 unit but also had a 1/2 speed variant which is earlier than the 3/4. For example the commonly seen GDEV boxes are 3/4 units the beta GDEV boxes "technically prototypes" came with 1/2 speed orcas. Though the vast majority were in fact sent in to Nintendo to be upgraded with the later 3/4 boards. The speed on the controller is reference to the unit it was used on. For a example again 3/4 was later version of the prototype marlin kits, 1/2 is earlier. Retail units and even a few dev pads are full speed however. A 3/4 pad for example the sample pad you got from me will run on full speed hardware provided the interfaces are compatible. So rj11 would only be for marlin kits and early hardware.What does the half speeds, 3/4 speeds mean? What do they do that’s different from a retail controller which I’d assume is full speed?
That's a really cool alternate/early design. It looks like a UFO though lolTake a look guys, enjoy this early prototype pad
