sorry,, i know im digging up an old thread.. and asking a lot for a newbie.. but ive recently purchased a cabinet and a retro duo(can order joysticks/buttons/wires next week) and desperately need to figure out exactly how to wire up my snes controller to some happ joysticks/buttons.. i can see in the diagram above how to connect all the buttons and joystick wires to the board with no problems.. its just im not so sure about the ground wires.. i can see that you connect it to all of the ground/common on the microswitches for the buttons.. but i cant see much about the ground wires on the joystick to d-pad.. where do i ground the loop to? the d-pad? or is there something close to it? i just cant tell in the small images.. i am new to wiring and soldering, so any help would be much appreciated. though, a simple diagram showing the ground and lead wires in different colors would be wonderful.
the reason i need to be real sure is because im on a tight budget, and really dont want to mess something up.
ive searched for a few days trying to find a good diagram about doing this.. and all ive really found is this thread and one video on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPvRdYPmJNM
i got some useful info from the video, and i want my finished product to be similar... but it still dont really show how to wire up the ground all the way.
im also gonna try make a tutorial about putting one of these together.. ill give you total credit for helping with the wiring.
heres the cab i got for $40.. gotta make tv braces, back door and control panel(that i know how to do)
