JLF Sanswa with 360 controller


#1

Hey I’m new to building controllers (and SRK in general, hi). I am building a controller with a friend and I intend on ordering parts, however based on my research I noticed that the JLF uses a 5 pin connector compared to other joysticks I’ve seen (and excuse my terminology) four microswitches on a controller connected to the small bead like ends on the dpad’s pcb. How do you connect a JLF to the d-pad is basically my question.

Also, when making a controller is there any recommended type of insulated wire to use and of course soldering heat?

I’m a noob and I know many of these questions I can find via search but the thread I did find about the JLF was a bit too confusing for me.

EDIT: another question, how would I get the microphone socket to work?

Thanks

It’s 4 wires for up, down, left, right and the fifth is the ground.

Don’t rush.

For microphone, the easy way is to use an extension cable.

Where would I hook up the ground on a wired d-pad?

Figure out which pad you have and check out the diagram. Like I said, everything you need to know is on that site.
