Step 1: Open the Gamepad
First, unscrew all the screws on the gamepad and open it. The inside looks more or less like this (see picture). It also has motors for "Dual shock", but I took the picture after I cut the cable... sorry.
Step 2: How the Buttons Work on Gamepads
Step 3: Extend the Button Inputs
The Massage me Jacket has 10 different kind of buttons, up, down, right, left, triangle, circle squire ,cross, select and start. Each connection to the gamepad input for these buttons is extended with a cable (red cables on the picture).
Step 4: Connect to the Jacket Inputs
Connect the cables as shown in the pin configuration. The reason we use another 14 pin plug here is because it makes the connection to the Massage me plug easy. For construction of the cable, please see Massage me Custom cable .
Step 5: That's It! Put in the Box and Ready to Use
Put the connected gamepad in the casing box. In our case, we put in some sponge to prevent the rattling noise and also covered the box with neoprene. Now it is ready to use!
