Hey so I got into fighting games a lot in the last month or so using the Marvel Fightpad so I decided to get into fighting games more by making my own custom arcade stick. Everything was finally all finished up today but I’m having a few issues. I used a CG2 wireless 360 controller PCB but I use a PnC cable so it’s always wired anyway and I have a ground cable for all buttons going to the negative spiral thing that the AA batteries would usually use.
Every button works perfectly but the JLF’s left, right and down direction doesn’t work - only up does. I have the JLF 5 pin harness ground going to the same ground used for the main ground cable for all buttons. I tested the contacts I scraped on the D-pad on the PCB to see if that was the culprit but it works flawlessly by just touching two wires together, one on the AA- ground and one on whatever contact I’m testing (left, right and down d-pad). I’m thinking I might have to mod the JLF to have each direction with it’s own ground but I really don’t want to do that and it doesn’t make sense because I’m using a CG2 board! Also I touched a multimeter’s leads to the end of each side of the harness and they’re all working so the harness isn’t messed up in any way.
If you need any more info let me know. This website’s helped me a lot with making the joystick and It’s almost there but not quite. Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance!
