Bah, there are millions of these damned things. Everyone always freaks out when you cut up an original SNESSFC controller as if they're rare :/

Yeah. At $10 a controller, I'd be okay. But Sega Saturn model 2 controllers are a pain to find normally, and at a good deal.

May wanna hold off on that assessment :( Just fubared that controller. Grounded something out, it's toast. Sucks, it was really close to being done. Off to eBay to see if I can't find another for dirt cheap...

I wish those controllers came with the purple SNES buttons. I would totally buy a kit to turn one of my SNES controllers wireless.

Could always swap the purple buttons over. They're the exact same shape and size ;)

It was a really stupid mistake. I had 2 wires soldered to the board hanging loose. They got smooshed between the shell and a capacitor. Them I of course turned it on :(

How complex would a button swap be?

About 2 minutes worth of "work".

Take apart both controllers, swap buttons, reassemble. Done.

Hey, wiggyx. Do you know where to get a tool or board to program microcontrollers? Or do I have to build one myself. I was thinking about doing this project. http://denki.world3....converters.html It looks like I don't even need a breadboard for the converter, maybe one for the programming.

Wiggy are you trying to work on other wireless controllers as well? After the Awesome Controller kickstarted failed I needs wireless for all my old systems :P

This is what you need right? http://n00bpwners.co...n64-saturn-etc/ Kinda crude looking, especially with the mutilation, but should be fine.

So I think this might be a good place to ask about this.

I want to make an audio switch for a 3.5mm line that can switch between headphones and speakers easily. Yes, I know I could just use an extension audio cord and just plug/unplug the desired device as needed, but I'd rather just leave everything plugged into a tiny switch box that has a button or toggle.

So basically:

Computer -> (3.5mm output audio) -> [Switch Box I'm building with button] ---> 3.5mm Headphones
............................................................................╚==> 3.5mm Speakers

I've searched online and can't really find something that would do this, and the few I do find are really ugly. I'm guessing this is a stupid simple project to do, and it would be fun to start out making something I need and can design to look nice.

Thoughts?

Simple. 3-pole on-on switch. This will allow you to connect 3 inputs (L signal, R signal, & Ground) with 6 outputs (2 sets, 1 on each side of the switch). The "on-on" implies that each throw of the switch is an "on" or complete circuit. I'll draw a little diagram, hold on.

You can get USB programmers for dirt cheap. This is what I have.

Then I use eXtreme Burner - AVR to write files.

Thanks. I'll probably lean toward this anyway though, considering lack of Paypal. http://www.amazon.co... programmer usb This is the same right, but I think the description says 10 pin, when the project I want to do has 20.

What chip or chips are you trying to program? But yes, that's the exact same programmer ;)

Dude, my diagram shows up a different color ever time I check it. It was green before, now it's red. Xmas themed graphic? LOL! Maybe I'll re-save as a PNG. It's pretty hard to read when it's monochromatic :/

Frankly I'm surprised it doesn't need those other parts I've seen in other like adapters, like resistors and whatnot.

The diagram you posted is still showing up as green.

After a little more searching, I can buy that adapter you recommended and build a 20 pin adapter for it. http://www.evilmadsc...-target-boards/

Actually yes, I have that all sorted out. Got it working, just need to clean up the mess of wires and pack everything into the controller and receiver housing.

I've reached out to the fellow that figured those setup out and asked either for his permission to use the info and files he's created to make kits and/or modded units to sell, or any interest he may have in making some money by helping out. He specifically states that he'd rather people not use his work for financial gain, and I can totally appreciate that and will respect his wish if that's what he wants in the end.

Hopefully I'll hear something back soon.

According to this, these can make a fine kit for a wired retro adapter.:

Atmel ATmega8-P
12MHz Crystal, HC49U or U4 package
22pF ceramic disc capacitor
100nF ceramic disc capacitor
10µF electrolytic capacitor
68Ω resistor, 0.125w
2k2Ω resistor, 0.125w
3V6 Zener diode, 0.5w
1 row pin headers 1
USB-B PCB header 2
2x3 6 pin header 3
10kΩ resistor, 0.125w 4

And with a breadboard!

This could be cheaper than getting a wireless one.
