Looking for documentation - keyboard emulator
#294210 - 08/22/12 02:15 AM


About two years ago I started building a mame cabinet. I got the cabinet, monitor, joystick, buttons, and a keyboard emulator.
Then life got in the way and other projects came along. I have decided to finish the project only to realize I don't have the documentation for the emulator.

It has 2 ps/2 keyboard ports on it and a bunch of cables coming off of it that go to buttons and the joystick. I don't remember where I got it from, or what it's called.

If anyone can point me in the right direction to get back on track, that would be great.

Thanks
James

Is it not an iPac or a KeyWiz?

A picture might help. There were a lot of keyboard encoders.

Here's a page that lists almost every keyboard encoder sold in the last 10 years, so maybe you'll find it helpful.

It looks like a (first generation?) Mini-PAC, PS/2 version...

http://retroblast.arcadecontrols.com/reviews/Ultimarc_Mini-Pac-08132006-01.html

http://www.ultimarc.com/minipac.html

There's wiring information...

http://www.ultimarc.com/mp_inst.html

...and software...

http://www.ultimarc.com/download.html

I also found this thread with a diagram and a wiring guide...

EDIT:

I found pages for the PS/2 version that you have in the Internet Archive...

Thank you so much. You rock. I though it was an old version of something but couldn't find anything about an old version on the website. I never even thought of checking the way back machine.
Thanks again for all your work.
