The cord on my T5 stick tore a little so the signals coming from my stick would only reach the PS2 every now and then. I decided I would try to fix this. Since I didn’t have another T5 cord just lying around to replace the torn one, I assumed that I would have to replace not just the torn cord, but also the PCB as well by using another controller. I have a Gamster Reflex Arcade stick so I decided to gut it and use its cord and PCB as a replacement. All was going well. When I wired the Gamester arcade stick PCB to the T5 joystick, all of the directional commands were fine. But the buttons (except for start and select) don’t make any sense at all.
When I connected the Gamerster’s button wires to their respective buttons on the T5 stick, most of them read as if they were different buttons. Some buttons were fine. To show when I mean, the button on the left of the equal sign is the button I wired to and expected the PS2 to read as. The button on the right shows what the PS2 read when I pressed the button:
If you notice, no matter what configuration I do, Triangle is read as neither a correct nor incorrect input. Its just missing… To makes things even more confusing, I went into training mode of Guilty Gear and put the settings on “input” which gives a visual representation of what the PS2 was reading. After pressing my jacked up buttons I see that the PS2 is actually reading multiple buttons when I only hit one. The buttons above that I just posted just seem to get priority. I don’t get it? I don’t know how to fix this. Does anyone even know what I’m talking about?
I know I connected the wires right. Their appropriate button assignments are printed right on the freakin’ PCB. And by the way the buttons are the original T5 buttons. PLEASE HELP!!!
