Right a little later that advertised in prior post. dident get wrapped up till the early hours and still waiting on perspex so i can mount the monitor in the box.
started off wiring up all the buttons using the quick wiring loom
you have 4 wires to connect yellow and black are on the actual button on and off. the red and the black wires are for the led power they will only light if connected the right way around there are no markings. So i would connect usb board to a laptop and plug molex in to connector board and loosely connect the red and the black if it don’t light first way swap it over to get button to light.
After wiring all the buttons and joystick switches make sure all right if using windows pc to check open up joystick settings and then can test all buttons and make sure joystick is set up right as can revers up, down, left and right.
After wiring all the buttons time to build the frame.
I brought a 100mm set of speakers that were not designed to be installed in this type of cabinet as universal i wanted to make some stand offs so i fired up fusion 360 designed the stand offs and then exported to stl file which i then sliced and printed.
i then screwed these to the enclosure. i then started to slot the enclosure together as i am still missing the perspex i did not install this. hoping that i can do that today. the joysticks were a tight fit as the screws i used were a little longer than needed so i cut down support bracket to get them to fit.
was fiddly but i manage to get it all together hoping on delivery of perspex today so i can mount the monitor.
i desired as i am screwing all components to the base board i would print my self a raspberry pi 3 case to screw to the base board.
found a nice nettfab case on thingiverse.com will install this tonight.
was getting very late so i desided to bolt down the joystick pcb’s and call it a night.
will post more later today depending on parts arriving today.
started to test out my polysmoother last night as well, will leave you all with this image of the man cave at night.
