Info taken from PSO World with permission from Layrinn.

"Hey, I thought I would bring this to your attention.

With the help of a friend, I have developed a fully functional PC keyboard adapter for use with GC PSO. I have posted further details in the Keyboard Information thread in the general forum. My partener and I have an informative web site in the works. You can view what we have so far here:

Please feel free to contact us through our web site if you have any questions or comments.

Sincerely,

Heya, everyone... here's a little more info for ya.

Right now, the project is in a testing phase. I have sent about a dozen
devices to my friends in order for them to help me thoroughly test it. I'd
like to give them a week or two to really put it through the wringer and
make sure the design is solid.
In the mean time, my partner and I will be working hard to come up with
a distribution scheme. We've been contacted by a few people willing to lend
their assistance, but right now a do-it-yourself kit seems to be the most
likely solution. Each adapter takes me well over an hour to build, and
that's with lots of practice! Since Adam and I both have very busy lives
apart from this project, it is not feasible for us to produce any kind of
significant quantity.
Don't hold me to this, but right now I think we would be selling DIY
kits for about $20 each plus shipping. Each one would contain all the
component needed to make an adapter, including the pre-programmed PIC
microcontroller. The kits would require basic soldering skills and a few
simple hand tools to assemble; it should take an amateur 2 - 3 hours to
complete. We would also try to offer fully completed adapters for a higher
price, but right now we have no estimate on that cost. Our primary goals
are to reach as many players as possible and to keep the cost as reasonable
as we can. Keep watching our web page as we will be constantly updating it
as our project moves forward.
