The PACLink Adapter can be used in conjunction with the I-PAC2 to build a DIY control box that is compatible with Xbox 360 and PS3.
- Operates in either Xinput/Xbox 360 mode or PS3 mode. Switchable on the adaptor
- Uses a high-speed interface from the I-PAC. No lag
- Works on the Xbox 360 without the need for a wired controller to be cross-plugged unlike many other adaptors
- Operates in 4 control modes which can be switched on the fly from the control panel
- One I-PAC 2 board supports one or two adaptors
The I-PAC 2 board needs to be connected to a PC and the WinIPACV2 program run, and select the "config" tab, then check the "Enable Expansion Interface" check box and click "apply".
Connect the adaptor(s) as shown in the picture below. The wire colors RED and BLACK are marked on the board on the P1 side. The P2 side connects the same way.
Connect the USB cables to the console (or PC for Xinput Mode). Note you can connect the board to a console AND to a PC using its standard USB cable at the same time.
If using on a PC in Xinput (Xbox360) mode, install the Xbox 360 Controller Drivers from Microsoft.
Depending on your panel layout and requirements you may need to change the default control mappings. The steps to do this are as follows:
- Decide which type of console or Xinput control you need to assign or move
- Look at the tables below to find this control, and make a note of the keycode which generates it.
- Assign this keycode to the pin on the I-PAC which the physical control is connected to. This is done using the WinIPACV2 program.
Hotkeys for Switching Modes
|Switch to Digital Mode||Start1/P1 Up*||Tilde|
|Switch to Left Analog Mode||Start1/P1 Left*||Enter|
|Switch to Right Analog Mode||Start1/P1 Right*||Tab|
|Switch to 2 into 1 Mode||Start1/P2 Down**||F12|
* These are I-PAC shift functions, ie hold down P1 Start
** This is not part of the default I-PAC code set. The function is suggested only and can be programmed into the I-PAC if needed.
