Firstly, hello all, I have visited this site often but this is my first post.
I recently bought a great arcade stick for the SNES called the XE-1 SFC by Micomsoft… the only problem is my SNES doesn’t want to accept it, all buttons do nothing. I changed the cable but that didn’t change a thing. The controller has an LCD screen which powers up when plugged in and shows that all the buttons work but the signal doesn’t seem to be getting to the console (or the console is not accepting it?) I heard that early SNES consoles have troubles with certain import controllers… is that true? It’s a Japanese stick and i’m using it on my PAL SNES. I have both UK and US official pads which both work fine.
Could I potentially use the PCB off a regular SNES controller and wire the buttons to the contacts?
Any help would be great, thanks!
