Hi, and welcome to my page where I cover the gadgets I make and sell.  

Updates and random info below. I also post a few updates on https://twitter.com/IrkenLabs.

JVS-PAC 2 features

I've finally gotten around to tinker with the JVS-PAC 2, a lot of the core stuff has been ported over from work on the Jammafier.

Keyboard output with MAME mapping is a no-brainer and default, I always strive for things to 'just work' for 'most cases'. There will be no XBOX360/One, PS4 support as I assume official licenses are out of reach and I'm not in the possession of the crypto stuff Brooks have - I actually have no idea how they pulled it off.

What I'm aiming for with this one is a single firmware that presents itself to the computer as:

  • A Capable keyboard (enough simultaneous button presses for fighting games etc)
  • A Mouse (I got a dynamic golf panel and would very much like to play marble madness on it)
  • Two Joypads

The idea is to have an .ini file on micro-sd and use the OLED/buttons to toggle/set configuration - i.e. to switch from keyboard to joypad without having to re-flash the firmware.

I've gotten some input on making it 'xinput', which I frankly don't completely understand as x-input is an old windows API, these requests also mention the xbox 360 controller and steam..?

Is the challenge at hand to make the JVS-PAC2 work 'out-of-the-box' with steam titles - drop me a message via the contact section if you have any input (pun intended :) ).



Second batch of Jammafiers out

The second batch of Jammafiers were sent out today, I hope you will like them.

Unfortunately, I don't have a hidden stash of Jammafiers, or JVS-PAC2's for that matter.  When more units will be for sale is TBD at the moment, but do check back for updates.


More Jammafiers

First batch of the Jammafiers went out last month, and while there was a slight issue (later resolved) with the IO boards found in Vewlix cabinets, I think it was a success.  

I'm making another small batch and as of right now, there are 4 units not spoken for.  If you want one, you can pre-order in the store section.  They should be ready to ship in about 2 weeks.

The store section is not really completed, shipping and payment plug-ins are not working so it's all rather static for now.  The way it works is you put in your order, and once I'm ready to ship - I'll send you a PayPal invoice.

Shipping methods are FedEx and non-tracked air-mail.
