XBox 360/PS3 (XBox 360 version tested) - XCM
This adapter allows you to re-map the button functions on official wired XBox 360 controllers (PS3 version also available known as an 'XCM - Swapper') allowing you to choose your own button layouts regardless of whether a game offers this option in-game or not. It also lets you swap the left and right thumbsticks over for when a 'Southpaw' i.e. left handed layout is not available in a games options.
Re-mapping is done on the adapter itself e.g. if we wanted to move the 'RT' function to the 'A' button we would press the program button ('P') then press the button we want to use, in this case 'A' then the button who's function we want it to emulate, in this case 'RT.' When you have finished re-mapping press the 'P' button again. To swap the thumbsticks over simply press 'P' then move one of the sticks to kick in this option.
The buttons available to be re-mapped are: A, B, X, Y, LT, LB, LC, RT, RB, RC, D-Pad Up, D-Pad Left, D-Pad Right, D-Pad Down, Start and Back.
