I’ve posted this in the Newbie thread a few days ago and recieved no responses, so thought I would start a thread as I’d really like to get this figured out.
Here’s what I have:
Seimitsu LS 32
Happ Comp Buttons
Wired Xbox 360 controller (newer version).
I have no idea what I’m doing wrong (probably lots), but my stick isn’t interfacing with the Xbox 360 controller properly.
I’ve soldered a male DB25 cable to the gamepad. Then I ran a female DB25 cable to my arcade stick, similar to what they did here: http://home.comcast.net/~jdpyle1/controls.htm
And this is how I wired up my controller:
Except instead of wiring to a 5 pin connector that would go to an LS 32-01 or whatever, I wired each separate direction from xbox 360 pad to one of the prongs on each side of the joystick, and then chained a common wire with the other prongs to the common spot shown on the picture.
First thing - am I supposed to be wiring anything to the Ground, and/or +5V points on the xbox controller? If so what?
I hooked it up to my computer to see what it was saying I’m pressing, and it thinks I’m pressing buttons 2, 4, 6 when I move directional pad in the upper left hand corner, and it thinks I’m pressing buttons 2 and 4 when I move stick to just the left… and thats it. So something is fundamentally wrong here.
