Link project is dead, right?
Seemed promising with 3D printed contact housings and USB contact pins - looked really good.

Maybe someone else can take over - or re-make it?

Nope, no news of any kind, doesn't look like there's anything to look forward to here.

A friend of mine wants to build a link cable. The problem is: there is to pinouts on planetVB !

In the wiki, we found at this address the following diagram:

(click for full size)

But in the workshop section, we find this diagram:

Open in new window



COMCNT? 1 ---------- 1 COMCNT?
+5 2 --o o-- 2 +5
Clock 3 ---------- 3 Clock
Receive 4 ---------- 8 Send
/we 5 --o o-- 5 /we
Sync? 6 ---------- 6 Sync?
GND 7 ---------- 7 GND
Send 8 ---------- 4 Receive

Pins 5 and 6 are different.
So, wich one is the good one ? Thanks by advance =)

Hi,

I've actually picked this project up and the connector design was finished today. I'll have the first prototype cables in about a month. PM if you're interested.

I'll be giving some free ones away to VB game developers. So if you have a game here on PlanetVB, and want a link cable, let me know and I'll reserve one for you. Not sure how many I can give away for free but I will do some.

See the attached picture for the connector design. The connectors will be black carbon fiber and the cable between them will be red CAT5. Should look nice.

Kevin

To clarify, this project picks up just the VB-to-VB link cable that DogP was working on or is this a completely new design?
