Diy Arcade Control Panel

Recommended Posts

Made an Arcade control panel using an original Xbox Type-S controller PCB 

Followed the wiring schematics from Please login or register to see this link.

 And came up with this design...

The 2 momentary black push buttons are left click (LC) and right click (RC) & the red one serves as an ON/OFF button.  

At first I thought I would have both left & right analog stick control , but that was not very feasible, at least for me( input welcomed if someone has wired up an analog control for an og xbox controller?) ... So instead I went with the d-pad for movement control. 

If there is enough interest I wouldn't mind making a build video for another one.

Hope you guys like it! 

Thoughts & input welcomed :)

nice looking panel. i did one myself. but with coinops in mind (arcade games) which is configured to use the d-pad.... that made it very easy to get the controls right.

tried to play Halo? because the panel has both sticks.

I removed the second joystick(blue), once I figured out that wiring an analog stick to a 8 position joystick is not possible..  maybe if i found an analog joystick? 

I wish i could play halo on this panel. That would be awsome!

      So a member of the group was asking for a Dport to dport wire he was asking other members if they had one available because he had one of those LCD screens that go on top of the Xbox and use a proprietary wire that connects from the Xbox to the intec inc screen.. I told him it was easy enough to make that it was just a few wires he could not be bothered. This got me thinking maybe I should make an easy-to-follow schematic for this. I did not do any YouTube searches or Google searches. I clearly went off my HDMI schematic and figured out the rest for myself. There was an image going around that shows the dport but it is backwards it shows the front view so in this image you will see that it's been deciphered so it's easier to follow well soldering. I did make one of these wires and had great success I used all brand new hardware that I purchased a little while ago. It is working great very basic wiring. I'm pretty sure this LCD does not provide video over 480i I think that's pretty much the max resolution I could be wrong on that this wire is designed to Output in 480i or your typical composite video signal. This pinout / schematic can potentially save a lot of money. I have not seen one of those wires alone on eBay it always comes with the screen so if somebody is looking for that wire it could be very costly pretty much what they want to pay for it. Not only that the same schematic can apply to somebody who has an RCA entertainment series Xbox Ready TV which has the proprietary dport input. In order to make this wire you can follow the diagrams exactly. Just make sure you add a few extra feet to the length in between. I know I bought one off Amazon and I think it cost me around 35 with shipping. This wire can be easily made from 2 $5 RCA wires. The schematic itself was made and designed by me maybe that's why it does not look the absolute greatest. I'm more of a Hands-On guy than the computer guy so I apologize but it looks pretty self-explanatory easy-to-follow what you do on one end you want to do on the other end. You should be fine the only concern is the jump wire pin 8 to pin 20... I have found if you only do one of the Xbox connections with this jump that connection has to be the one that's plugged into the Xbox itself. If you hook it up the other way around it will not display. So you can either remember to always plug that one in your Xbox or just make sure you jump both sides on both connectors. In order to not have to worry about that. In any event I hope somebody somewhere can benefit from this schematic took me a couple hours to wire up in a couple hours to make the schematic itself. But if it helps at least one person in the community save money than it was totally worth it 🙂 4 wire I just used regular RCA's. I'm guessing if you wanted the best kind of quality on this you can always use Xbox 360 shielded component cable wire since that is a high build grade for sure..for 5.1 audio out just tap into pin #3 ...thank you very much

      I'm not sure what it's actually called (jewel?) but the LEDs that light up the ring around the eject button on my Xbox v1.0 doesn't work.
      I took the Xbox apart and tested the LEDs with my multimeter set on diode mode and the LEDs do light up (for those that might not know diode mode on a digital multi meter will usually provide enough power to light a LED).
      I then did a continuity test between the 3 legs on each of the LEDs to the connector pins on the back of the board and found not problems.
      I then powered up the board to test for voltage going to either of the LEDs and there is none.,
      My guess is that corrosion damage from a bad clock capacitor (now removed) has caused an issue with the power traces going to the LEDs..
      Is there a guide anywhere on fixing the trace(s) that provide power to the LEDs? or would it be easier to pick up power from somewhere else like from the leg of a voltage regulator or somewhere else?
       
      thanks

      Dear all 
      I want to change power led color of og Xbox but can't remove front panel to gain access to power pcb, what is the easiest way to open it? 
      Thanks
