My arcade controls arrived yesterday!
The buttons are on the right (including the 1 and 2 player start buttons) and the microswitches are to the left (they attach to the bottom of the buttons are actually control the machine).
From left, the cable to connect to the computer, the interface card, the mounting feet.
A close up of the interface that connects the controls to the computer.
The joysticks (switchable from 4-way to 8-way for real arcade authenticity!)
Wires, connectors, and wiring tool (mine was getting pretty old, so I got a new one)
Everything together! My next step is going to be to mock up a control panel to help me learn how everything works and to better figure out exactly what I want on the real thing.
