As I said previously, I’ll use a cheap arcade stick since I’ll only use the circuit to connect the control panel to the console.
The challenge is to connect all the buttons in this circuit. I found this image online and it really helped me
After connecting and welding all wires that needed to be connected to the button switches, I fixed the small circuits inside the arcade
The rest of them are all simple connections like those we normally do in game consoles. I just tried to leave all cables neatly arranged and fixed so they don’t run loose inside the cabinet.
Left all power supplies in the bottom of the arcade, arranged and fixed so they don’t move during transportation.
