I’m wondering if someone could help me design a simple circuit. Basically the lock switch mod you’d do on a TE, but I wanna do it without installing an actual switch. Kind of like the start+select=guide mod. But I wanna do it with one button instead.
So what I’d like to do is have this circuit complete or break the ground connection for a after holding a button for a certain length of time.
So here’s the setup of my joystick, grounds are daisy chained, with start, guide, and back as the final links in the chain. In that order specifically.
Say I plug in my joystick
The start button would act as normal, a single press and release would ground the start signal and the controller pcb would register that start was pressed. Course guide and back would work as normal
But, I would like to be able to hold down that same start button, and it would break the ground so that whenever I press the start, guide, or back buttons they would not ground. Thus not working.
I’m sure it’s probably simple with an IC, I’m not an electrical engineer. I can assemble it, but I need help designing it and I can’t read schematics so I need pictures in regular human speak.
