Tutorial: Assembling Sanwa Stick Adapter (CG Mod)

Hi,

many questions arose to the sanwa stick adapter. So here's a tutorial about assembling the adapter with many pics.



Step 1: Soldier the pcb. Locate the GND and Signals of the directions with a multimeter. I've marked the GND Points with a pencil. Summarizing there're 8 cables going from the PCB:

PCB 1 - Signal Up - White
PCB 2 - GND Up - Black
PCB 3 - Signal Down - Green
PCB 4 - GND Down - Blue
PCB 5 - Signal Left - Purple
PCB 6 - GND Left - Grey
PCB 7 - Signal Right - Orange
PCB 8 - GND Right - Yellow

Then on right hand side USB VSS and USB GND

9 - USB VSS - RED
10 - USB GND - BLACK



Step 2: Assemble 4 resistors and optocoppler on breadbord

Pin 1 - 1K Ohm - USB VSS
Pin 3 - 1K Ohm - USB VSS
Pin 5 - 1 K Ohm - USB VSS
Pin 7 - 1 K Ohm - USB VSS

Step 3: Connect cable to breadboard



Pin 16- PCB 7 - Signal Right - Orange
Pin 15 - PCB 8 - GND Right - Yellow
Pin 14 - PCB 3 - Signal Down - Green
Pin 13 - PCB 4 - GND Down - Blue
Pin 12 - PCB 5 - Signal Left - Purple
Pin 11 - PCB 6 - GND Left - Grey
Pin 10 - PCB 1 - Signal Up - White
Pin 9 - PCB 2 - GND Up - Black

Pin 2 - Black - Right
Pin 4 - White - Down
Pin 6 - Grey - Left
Pin 8 - Purple - Up

Cables are then connected to luster terminal (right hand side)

Port 1 - Black - Right
Port 2 - White - Down
Port 3 - Grey - Left
Port 4 - Purple - Up
Port 5 - BLACK thick - USB GND

Use this connector for the Sanwa Stick Cable.

Try to read the schematic




Of course one can use this adapter to make a dual pcb mod. Though set all needed signal to cg which are not cg.

Hi there, I was reffered to your blog by Jan Fleck. I've got a small question regarding wiring the JLF (using JLF-H) to a HFS3 PCB. The PCB seems to require a ground for each direction, while the JLF seems only to have one grounding wire. Perhaps you could tell me how to get around this?

When I hook up the grounding wire, I can get the nearest direction to work, but that results in only having one direction work at a time since I've got only one wire.

This is my first Mod - I'm a little lost right now (and it was going so well up until this point). any advice you could give would be great.


thanks,

Everett

Hi,

yes, exactly. Due to this behaviour I've made the mentioned adapter. if you're familar with stripe boards, then u can rebuild this solutions. Otherwise you've to dissamble the joystickpsb and soldier the DIFFERENT Ground wires directly to the microswitches.

Hope this helps,

Jochen
