I by accident pulled out the wires from my dance dance revolution dreamcast controller....i would just buy a new 1 but i mounted it to a wood board so it would be a pain in the neck

i open up the thing to get to the circuit board...and there are 5 soldering poitns and 5 wires and im thinking ok this is good...

however...it isnt labeled or anything so i dont know which color wire goes to which point on the board....is there some kind of circuitry layout of a dreamcast controller online somewhere so that i can try and figure it out?

thanks

just look at another..

Or you can try just connecting them and see which one of your coordinates is incorrect when plugged in.

u guys need to read the post--- its not a controller


its a DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION dance pad and i thought of that but its connected to the pad by some kinda plastic stuff i dont feel like figuring out how it works and taking that off and stuff

easier to just solder it

if that doesnt work too bad ill just wait for it to come out for xbox in november

also the pads r only 20 bucks but i dont wanna buy another 1 b.c i modded it to a wooden board w. hard plastic covering over it

lol guess what???\

i did it...according to the wires on the controller (however the controller had a green instead of yellow so i put the yellow where the green was)

made sure notihng was touching


then i plug it in

it didint work

AND....now none of my controllers work it mustve shorted something out inside the controller hookup in the dc...

good thing dreamcasts are only 15 bucks on ebay!
