Using the exact schematic on the site where it is explained how to set the thing up, I built my own (mostly for practice but also because i had the parts laying around).
However, the schematic isn’t that easy to understand. I was hoping that someone could help me, I made everything in accordance with what I could understand form the thing, but the JP1 and the button block didn’t make much sense as to why they were there at all.
Attached is the schematic and also a picture of my circuit.
I plugged it in and tried to test it out after making sure I had made the advocated changes in the config files. But no response from the pi.
I refereanced VCC on the GPIO ports as the pin by the P1 indicator (the one with square solder on the back, with the SD card facing me while i hold it upright, the bottom right pin)
I made sure that the controller worked with a SNES and games, whenever I try to run jstest on the controller, it isn’t even detected.
