Is it possible to use the Eagle Eye accessory on a PS3 to play Super Street Fighter 4 with a keyboard, with the same configuration ?

I use on the PC the combination WASD + UIO (punch) + JKL (kick).

I own SF4 on PC, and definetely can't achieve the same proficiency playing this game with an arcade pad or with the SIXAXIS controller.

It looks promising that you can use it as you describe. You might get a better answer by asking the manufacturer themselves though. Then you can come back here and answer your own question. –  YellowMegaMan Mar 11 '11 at 6:32
    
@YellowMegaMan, sorry, but isn't the whole point of a Q&A site to ask questions and someone else answer ? Maybe the question wasn't phrased well enough, but my intent is not to know what the manufacturer tells, but if another user that has this device actually used it with this specific game. –  Machado Mar 11 '11 at 23:31
    
No good so far. Just read some reviews, no mention of SF4. findps3.com/ps3-controller/… and loot-ninja.com/2010/09/15/review-ps3-eagle-eye-adapter Just a small mention on psu.com/Eagle-Eye-Converter-Review--a010529-p2.php0 –  Machado Mar 11 '11 at 23:42
    
It's okay to answer your own question here, but it's a good idea to give others a day or two to provide answers first. I can't see many people knowing the answer to your question though. –  YellowMegaMan Mar 12 '11 at 3:33
    
It's obviously targeted at the FPS market, so it's not surprising that SF4 isn't mentioned. But the Amazon page suggests you can fully customise the keys. To me this would include the D-pad, but it's too vague to know for sure. –  YellowMegaMan Mar 12 '11 at 7:39

Yes. See my query to their sales department:

Hello, 
Yes the Eagle Edit 2.0 allows you to assign d-pad to any key configuration
you choose for your keyboard.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Does the PS3 Eagle Eye support remapping the controller's D-pad to keyboard
keys? I'm looking to control a fighting game using just the keyboard.

The reasoning for my question about the D-pad was this:

  • The Eagle Eye is designed for keyboard/mouse control of FPS games.
  • Buttons such as X, Triangle, Square, R1, etc will be mappable to keyboard keys, as this is required for FPS games.
  • Movement in FPS games will be mappable to the mouse, as this is a key FPS requirement.
  • If movement can also be mapped to the keyboard, then a fighting game such as SSF4 can be played.
  • SSF4 players generally use the D-pad for movement.

Therefore, since the D-pad can be mapped to the keyboard, the Eagle Eye can be used to play SSF4 with the keyboard. (Eagle Edit 2.0 is the packaged software for configuring the Eagle Eye.)
