    USB Panther XL

     

    Version 1
    Version 1 of the USB Panther XL was made using a Mad Catz Panther DX USB joystick and transplanting the USB internals into the users Panther XL.  When the stock of new Panther DX’s ran out, the production of version 1’s stopped as well.


    Version 2
    Version 2 of the Panther XL USB used a stand alone USB Controller board designed for home arcade cabinets and reprogrammed for Panther XL use.  The Version 2 required the use of Keyboard Emulation software to be used in games with no joystick support.


    Version 3
    Version 3 of the Panther XL USB,  the unit started production in August 2008 and is sold as the flagship unit.  The Version 3 Operates in two modes, Joystick mode where it works like the version 1/2 as a USB joystick or Keystick Mode where it outputs as a Hardware Keyboard for games with no joystick support.

     

    Version 4
    Version 4 of the Panther XL USB,  the unit started production in November 2011 and is sold as the flagship unit.  The Version 4 Operates in two modes, Joystick mode where it works like the version 1/2 as a USB joystick or Keystick Mode where it outputs as a Hardware Keyboard for games with no joystick support.  

    The version 4 also ships with firmware compatible with the Xbox 360 Keyboard and Mouse adpater the XIM3 so that the Ver4 can be used on the Xbox 360 !  

    The ver4 also ships with the Logitech G400S that includes mouse speed selection switches wired in to rudder pedal cover and llows mouse speed selection to be setup on the fly while playing the game !

    The button layout has been reworked on teh ver4 so that the Joystick Trigger is wired into the Mouse Left click, pinky button is mouse right click and thumb button is mouse wheel click.  The new button layout allows for faster response in games as most games poll the mouse many times faster than the keyboard !  So demos of late have also not allowed any keyboard buttons to be used for "Fire" limiting use of the Panther XL Ver3.
