Just imagine, being able to bring all those hotkeys to this fantastic controller.... I would be the happiest dude ever.

The keyboard being fully functional would be an added plus, but those numbers 1-0 would be incredible.

Anybody here got the know-how to make it reality? ;)

I've used it on PSO2 - http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=726125

As of now, it only works with wired controllers, but they recently dumped all the stuff needed to make it work with wireless controllers - They have wireless working in Linux, and they're bringing it to Windows soon.

Neat, I might ask my bro to borrow his chatpad

And keep it like he kept my N64

You just made my day (and night!)

I knew about the wired controller drivers, but everything pointed to the wireless controller having no hope at all. I have one of these chatpads, so I absolutely cannot WAIT for this to be ported over to Windows!

Woah ho, it works on wireless on linux? I don't suppose there's a way to go about emulating that on windows, is there? Or would it basically need to be put together from the ground up?

From what I can find, it doesn't.

http://www.examiner.com/article/review-afterglow-controller-by-pdp

Quote from this review "Finally, the bottom connection for the headset is different, having only the 8mm jack. Missing the two slots next to the headphone jack makes the chatpad worthless"

Also http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=304479

Just to confirm it, if you look at posts 8 and 9, they both say it doesn't fit.

Those are both old though (review is from 2010 and the forum is from 2011) so the controller may of changed since then, I don't know.

It shouldn't be a long wait - There's been a lot of developments about it lately.

I'm not sure - I believe nwrapper is used for Windows -> Linux, but I don't believe there's anything for vice versa. It'd need to be built from the ground up, and I don't have any experience with it (...Maybe I'll look into it once I finish everythingggggg on PSO2 that I'm working on).

Nope, sorry. I was disappointed too :(

Is that any way for a warrior of Halla to talk, young Pendragon? All hope is not lost. This is the way it was meant to be.

UPDATE: Drivers for the wireless chatpad controller have been released!

http://brandonw.net/udraw/


The latest version adds:

Added ability to sync Xbox 360 wireless controller and use a connected chatpad as a keyboard (as well as D-pad/controller buttons for mouse input, same as tablets)

As I just found this, I haven't tested it myself - If it doesn't register it as a joystick, so I'm not sure if it will work with PSO2. I'll test later tonight~

The progress for the original driver (which registers the controller as a Windows joystick to work perfectly in PSO2) is here:

https://code.google.com/p/chatpad-super-driver/issues/detail?id=46

He's got an alpha version out, which is complicated but is said to work for very few people - He's revamping the driver though, and says to expect it out in the next few coming weeks!

When it comes out, it'll be posted there. So keep checking back! If the udraw driver above works however, I'll write up a quick tutorial on how to use it :)

Awwwww. Does it work with Joy2Key? Maybe map it that way? (Thanks for testing!)

AW MAN.

I'm so excited. I bought a Hong Kong knockoff wireless connector for 360 controllers, and I already have a controller and chatpad.

This will be glorious. I hope this thread gets continuously bumped so that
a) more people see it.
b) we get further progress updates on the driver!

I never did pick one of these up, mostly because of the outrageous price during the time. Plus I was part-time and stuff at that age, so... I settled for the Datel keyboard for PSO GCN.

In retrospect, I think it was a good choice... that thing is quite hideous!

This has been a slow project.

I remember I actually bought a 360 gamepad, like 6 years ago, with the chatpad thing too. It was wireless but the project wasn't too advanced yet on the wired side either. Eventually I got bored and sold the gamepad and the chatpad to a friend that had an Xbox, because I didn't really like it then. I got it with the idea to use it with PSU, but the game didn't have support for the triggers so I was short of 2 buttons.

It's surpeising that this hasn't gotten that much attention at all. A gamepad that is good quality as the 360 is, with the possibility for a full keyboard there, should be eyecandy for any MMO geek like us, but it seems not.

Also, very scumbag move from Microsoft's part to not to offer support for it on the PC. They advertise the console being very compatible with PC, but then they don't offer support for that. I don't really get that marketing move. Is not like people would buy xboxes just because of the chatpad, but in the other hand, they'd sell chatpads and controllers like popcorn if it worked on Windows.
