Title: How to wire N64 plugin?
Post by: Lylat1an on 04/Oct/2017 02:57:18 AM
I've soldered the wires of a controller extension cable in the order red-white-black but I can't get the controller buttons to register on my PC.

It looks like I need to order some resistors, but do I install them vertically or diagonally like in this picture?

There was a board revision that fixed the diagonal resistors.

If your PCB is the v0.4 version dated 2012-08-26, then install the resistors vertically.

Good Luck!

Thank you.

After looking up 220Rs I see I have a choice for wattage, should I use 1/4w, 1/2w, or 1w resistors?

1/4W.  The package is 0207/10.
