X-BOX Control Adaptor (Uncased)
cased x-box adaptor

Adaptor with optional case
The X-Box Adaptor converts the output from the I-PAC (must be in PS/2 keyboard mode) into XBox commands. The controls connected to the I-PAC emulate the controls on the XBox controller as shown in the tables below. Important Note: The XBox controller contains some analog controls, and your arcade control panel has switch-type controls. This means that pressing each switch simulates the analog control being pushed hard across. Some games (flight sims for example) cannot be played with switch-type controls.
This adaptor can also be used with a keyboard. The keys shown in the tables below, simulate the actions of the XBox controller.
The I-PAC controls shown in the tables are only valid if the MAME default codeset is being used in the I-PAC. If the I-PAC has been programmed with a different codeset, the button assignments will be different.
Hotkeys for Switching Modes
 Switch to Digital Mode Start1/P1 Down* P
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
Tip: You can remember these keys by looking at the XBox controller, and the positions of each control.
* These are I-PAC shift functions, ie hold down P1 Start
** This is not part of the default I-PAC codeset. The function is suggested only
and can be programmed into the I-PAC if needed.

XBox to Arcade Monitor/Speaker Adaptor
Click To Order

This cable plugs into the X-Box AV port. It includes a video amplifier which boosts the X-Box video signal to the level required by arcade monitors. It also includes a sync separator chip (inside the D-Plug housing). You can also plug in a pair of amplified speakers for sound. The picture shows all connections required for an X-Box to arcade monitor, speakers and controls.
IMPORTANT! This cable only works with 15Khz arcade monitors. It will NOT work with PC monitors. If your arcade monitor is a multi-frequency model (eg W-G D9500) and has a VGA connector then the J-PAC adaptor (below) is the best choice.

X-Box to JAMMA Adaptor
Includes a sync separator chip (inside the D-Plug housing)
This adaptor is also the correct type for use with multi-frequency monitors which have a VGA plug (eg W-G D9500). These monitors should be connected direct to this adaptor in all cases, even if you have a J-PAC.

Click To Order
To connect an X-Box to a JAMMA cabinet you need the following items:
X-Box Controls Adaptor
X-Box to J-PAC cable
J-PAC ( see our main order page for this item)
IMPORTANT INSTALLATION INSTRUCTION: When connecting this cable to the J-PAC you need to remove all of the frequency jumpers (ie 15, 25, 31) on the J-PAC, which allows all signals to pass through. Only later J-PAC boards have this facility. On older J-PAC boards you will need a replacement chip to enable this function. Please email for details.

Setup Steps

  • Install the J-PAC as described on the J-PAC installation page and remove the red jumpers. You will need a PC to connect it to, for setting up.
  • You will need to connect buttons 4-6 to the white screw terminals on the J-PAC as described. Its not practical to use the console adaptors with a cabinet with less than 6 buttons.
  • You will need to map your controls as required. To do this, decide which console control you want to assign to each physical button or joystick switch. Make a list of each and look at the table above to determine which keycode each button needs to be set to.
  • Using the keycodes from the table above, enter these into the WinIPAC program on the PC, to set up each J-PAC connection for the required keycode.
  • Note you can use shifted codes, where Start1 (by default) is pressed, and then each other butotn sends a secondary code. The shifted codes are useful for console controls such as "Back" which are not used diring gameplay.

The picture below shows a complete X-Box to JAMMA setup.
