i don’t really know how simple this is but soldering wise it is very simple.
a little back story.
i have a liking for super minimalistic and sleek design - as a result i was on a search for a way to get
rid of buttons that could be gotten rid of.
SYNC - xbox360
BACK - xbox360
START - xbox360
GUIDE - xbox360
unfortunately this didn’t happen for my wireless stick.
a few days ago i gave my friend my SF:Anni stick to wire up nicely. i gave it to him so he could do a
nice clean job - i would have just tossed it together as quickly as possible and cleaned it up months later.
not wanting to ruin anything on the casing itself i debated how to wire up a guide button to this stick without drilling any holes.
thanks to Toodles (of course) i was able to achieve this concept.
this is an ORGATE. $0.99usd. i think i spent a total of $8 on this because i bought the gate, breadboard, socket, and terminals.
1 ORGATE has the potential for 4 buttons. i only needed one for this mod the above schematic is what was used. the blue line in the pic is the common ground. i’ll post up the chip number when i get the pics up.
A = BACK
B = START
[*]2 = GUIDE
i’m glad to say it works PERFECTLY. drawing 5v from the VCC line on a Madcatz Retro hack. the buttons do not interfere with
anything and they still work perfectly in their original functions.
as soon as my friend is done wiring up the stick nicely i’ll post some pics. probably within the next day or so.
i don’t own a ps3 yet but i don’t see why this wouldn’t work as long as you’re pulling the 5v the chip needs.
