I can't get my arcade buttons to work? they read but when I go into the games they don't read and especially in attract more I have nothing? I need help

Paul Larkins says:

Can I ask how you power the LED lights in the controls? The ones I have found need to have a 12 volt molex. Obviously with a RPI you don't have that.

Hey Bob. Just had an (probably stupid) idea. Could this be 3D printed? Would it be worth while or the price of the material would be too high for it to be cost effective? There is also the size of the bartop, because in 3D printing, size does matter. 🙂 Thanks a bunch!

Great video here! I have a question:Where can i buy the T orange border? I cannot find it on amazon

Zippy Of the line says:

Awesome build mate.I am about to start on my build.This is my first time and I really need some advice on the wiring, like daisy chaining the negatives.I would really appreciate a tutorial for setting up the controls as i have no experience with electronics and not sure where the wires need to go.

Thanks matey

Humberto Guimarães says:

Regarding connection to the GPIO on the raspberry, for a 2 player setup do you also need the IPAC? I thought the GPIO on the Rp would be enough… can anyone help me please?
