First of all, im a new member to this community,
This is my first time trying to build an arcade stick and the first time ive even souldred and have no experiences from reparing electronics. I have a 3rd-part Xbox 360 controller, I ran 2 wires from everybutton, 1 ground and one signal and all the buttons work (Edit: I am not using/connected RT and LT). I did the same for the D-pad, tho I cant get the joystick to work, kind of. In the xbox home/xbox start up menu the joystick works, tho starting SSF4 the “down” input is on all the time.
I use a Sanwa JLF-TP-8 joystick:
I have ONLY cut the ground tracks, not the signaltrack as in this picture.
I then draged one ground and one signal to each micro swith, for example:
- Up signal and Up ground to the Up microswitch
Anyone have an idea of what ive done wrong?
This is the controller im using:
Except the d-pad issue (which probably can be solved) I really recommend this controller, no black stuff the you need to scrape of on the button or d-pad. I can upload a photo of what is inside if anyone’s intrested.
Edit: Pic of controller PCB (untouched)
All help is worth gold! Thanks
