Sorry if this post is in the wrong place or anything, please don’t hurt me
Hello, I’m working on my crappy arcade stick (oak wood box, 8 buttons, Sanwa JLF stick w/ orange bubbley top) and I was wondering: -Is there anyone I can send my almost complete xbox 360 madcatz wired PCB to so I can get this finished? I hate soldering, but I got it done- except- I tested my arcade buttons on the triggers, but when I do it, the whole board short-circuits and restarts. I need you to fix the triggers only. Everything else is soldered. some wires could probably use re-soldering. The pins on the triggers and the spinny boxes on the triggers should be intact. -No, I don’t know whats wrong, and No, I really don’t feel like or have the confidence to do this myself, at least anymore…
God- I already like tore apart like 3 controllers for this :looney:
?One controller didn’t have common ground- fantastic. Was from pelican or something.
?One was a PCB identitical to the one I’m working on now, a wired re-branded gamestop-madcatz pcb. I completely #$^#^'ed up and tore off both the trigger button pins/spin-boxes
?and the madcatz-wried gamestop-rebranded PCB I’m working on.
I spun the weird spinning boxes on the triggers so they we’re at 50% on my control panel screen on the computer.
-I do not know whats wrong, I test my button’s wire on the middle pin on BOTH triggers.
-some soldering on some of the buttons is probably totally craptastic, if you could do it better it’d be awesome times 10 billion.
I don’t have money, but I can:
?give you the two PCBs I already tore out of controllers already.
?maybe a game in my collection I don’t want and can give to you. Xenogears for playstation 1, anyone?
?And can do: Drawn art work/pixel art work/3d artwork/photoshopping/forum avatars and sigs. I also do voice-overs/synthesizer music/and sound effects.
?something else you might be able to think of. Let me know.
?I’d be willing to trade the almost complete stick/box/and the two PCBS for just a tournament edition madcatz ST IV arcade stick, instead of the above.
this project is driving me nuts- I just want it done so I can have a arcade stick to play with online.
Also I cannot possibly spend anymore money on this project- I could’ve already bought a madcatz SF IV pro stick AND a fight pad…I’m one sad sad panda. Sad / crying / dead face. Also can anyone tell me how they get their really cool face panel art on their sticks? thanks.
I also live in albuquerque, NM.
