Need help wiring a early version xbox 360 wired controller to a jlf with that 5 pin


#1

i tryed to wire up seperately to the microswitches but it didnt work.
i wired right and then tested and it worked fine . but then i tryed down and it didnt work . then i wired all microswitches to the d-pad with there seperate negatives and then the joystick didnt work at all.
i have to wire the 5 pin connector now but dont have a clue. i checked the slagcoin diagram but i dont know what is common . can someone draw me a diagram for a early version 360 controller to a jlf.
:wonder:

Early version doesn’t have common. Your going to have to cut all the ground traces on the JLF PCB and solder each ground wire separately.


#3

You need to cut the traces that connect the grounds together on the microswitch PCB. Then connect your wires directly to the microswitches with the separate grounds.

Edit ^Beat me to it.^


#4

which traces exactly do i need to cut.
sorry for being such a noob


#5

The ground one. On the JLF PCB. I believe it’s the large trace that goes right around the outside of the PCB. You could just de-solder the switches from the PCB all together if you wanted to keep the PCB in tack for future use or something.


#6

there is a way to wire it without cutting any trace. there was a thread i think on the 4 page on how to wire the 360 controller to a sanwa jlf but it was the new wired controller . i need the old wired controller. i will try to find the thread.


#7

i found it. coverless tech , it was your post dude.

here is the pic :

i need the old wired controller diagram


#8

got it working . i cut all the 4 ground traces on the pcb . i really appreciate it .
i gave street fighter remix HD a go but i found it that the moves dont come out all the time.
does anyone know why ?


#9

Buttons or directions? You should go back and find out if you soldered everything properly. Something my have come loose between you putting the pcb in the box and closing it up.


#10

i am using happ buttons . its pretty difficult to bring out a combo.
the problem is the joystick. everyone says its the best, but i like a stiffer feel of the joystick.
i dont know why ?


#11

Thats because your probably use to Happ joysticks. Everyone says it’s the bets because it’s what Daigo and the SFIV machines use. That doesn’t mean it’s the best for everyone. I had to mod the hell out of mine to get it to feel right to me.

Yeah thats mine. Thats for the newer pad, I didn’t link it because you have the older version.

I have 2 questions. I’m in the same situation right now with the same controllers (both early wired 360 and JLF)

  1. In case I want to cut the 4 PCBs on the JLF: I’m still confused about the wiring. I know I need to wire it like in this image:
    http://slagcoin.com/joystick/pcb_diagrams/360_diagram6.jpg
    But since I’m cutting the PCB does that mean that the right and Back button on the 360 PCB shouldn’t be daisied anymore? So that I can be less confused, can I just connect each ground from each button from the 360 PCB to each microswitch?
    Also, do I need to connect the Ground (grey) and 5 V at all?

  2. http://bencao74.blogspot.com/2009/04/tutorial-assembling-sanwa-stick-adapter.html
    This shows a way without breaking the JLF PCB. However, the 360 PCB is different from mine… I’m wondering if I can still apply the same connections.

Response would be greatly appreciated!

You are only cutting Trace on JLF PCB.
You can still Daisy-chain Back and RIGHT if you want.
To be less confuse, you can just do individual Ground and Signal for each.

No +5V.

bencao74 you can do.

That you will need +5V.
