PADDLES SETUP

The M1, M2, M3 and M4 paddles at the back of the pad can be given the same function as any action button.The M1 M2 M3 M4 paddles can map a maximum of 14 buttons.

The M1 paddle defaults to button 1

The M2 paddle defaults to button 3

The M3 paddle defaults to button 4

The M4 paddle defaults to button 2

 

There are 2 ways to setup the paddles: 

Mode A Remapping : 1 or more buttons can be set to 1 paddle

Mode B Macro : programmed macro chains can be set up on a single paddle.

 

MODE A : REMAPPING

Using M1 paddle as example

  1. Keep M1 paddle pressed then push Share, the Turbo LED stays lit, programming mode is on. Release M1
  2. Press the buttons you want to map, say L1 and R2
  3. Press M1 again to confirm setup, the Turbo LED turns off, programming ended successfully. Pushing M1 now will work as if pressing L1 and R2.
  4. Each paddle can replace one or several of the fllowing buttons : buttons 1, 2, 3, 4, L1, R1, R2, L2, right stick, left stick, directional cross (up/down/left/right). In some games, buttons may already have several functions associated.

TURBO BUTTON

The turbo button has two main features.

The first one concerns the paddle setup : when the button is lightened, it indicates that the paddle programming mode is on.

The second one concerns the gameplay : when you use the turbo button and hold down another button of your controller, the action of this button will be repeated continuously.
