I’ve spent the last week or so scouring the Tech Talk forums and searching Google trying to find an answer for how to do this and came up empty handed, so I figured I’d make a thread and ask. Is there any solderless way to add LED illumination to some translucent Seimitsu PS-14-KN buttons and a bubble ball top on a Sanwa JLF stick in a Mad Catz Tatsunoko vs Capcom Wii fightstick? I found several guides for how to do it with a TE stick for the PS3 and Xbox 360, but since those connect via USB and the TvC stick connects via the Wii remote I’m guessing the modding process might be a bit different. It seems that there used to be a guide for LED lighting TvC sticks on SRK but the thread was lost in the move to Xenforo.
Keep in mind that this will be my first time LED modding a stick and I’m looking for the simplest and easiest way to go about doing it. I’m not looking for anything too complicated, just constant on LEDs whenever the stick is turned on. To make it as easy as possible to set up I’ve been looking into picking up a JLF LED joystick from Paradise Arcade Shop and some 30mm Pele rings to light the buttons, but I don’t have the first clue as to how to wire them up or if there are any Wii compatible LED controllers out there that would offer a simple solderless connection solution.
Again, I’m a total newbie when it comes to this sort of thing and any advice that you guys/gals could offer to help make this project a reality would be sincerely appreciated!
