How many of those will be under blue buttons? Or was the pic of the blue button just to show the difference between that and the white ones you got?

They will all be white buttons

The video is a bit rough...



Here it is Loading 10 Yard Fight: Speaking the game name then the controls.
I pressed pause and it repeats the Controls.
It lights all lights when it says "10 Yard Fight"
Then Light up my the Coin to Green, the P1 to White, The Pause to Yellow, and the Lateral button to Red




I still have alot of tweaking to do  :-\
Edit: PAC LED64 AND Led Blinky  ;)

I ordered the blue one for a test; I actually ordered 1 of each blue button from Happ, Spectralight(GGG), Generic, and Ultralux(Ultimarc).
They each have a different feel so I thought it worth to try them all out before I got stuck with a button that I wasnt totally happy with.  ;)

I finally got back home from a short business trip and I found my UltraLux Pushbuttons from Andy!   ;D

On the RGB Ultralux's the wiring can get in the way of the plunger that connects to the switch.
Sometimes the little switch will press down all the way sometimes not, the plunger or "foot" of the pushbutton makes contact with the wiring and prevents a good contact.

So here is my tip for the RGB Buttons...First my mistakes  :-[

I tried to Split the wires in pairs around the bayonet...didnt work too well but better


Next I was a little more drastic.. Mistake Number Two
I clipped the "foot" off.


So far so good right?



Ok maybe not, the button kind of lays sideways:




Finally I decided Hmmm we are not using the Male connectors on the side I wonder if I can pry them off:


It makes it much easier to gently pry the connector out while it is within the button.


So far so good...and the final result!
The cables are out of the way!






I hope this will help the next guy.

 :cheers:
