  • I want to build my own arcade controls!
i haven't found the answer to this question anywhere yet, hopefully you can help me.

when i make my controll panel i want 6 additional buttons (pause, esc, setup, enter and 2 pinball side buttons.

i know that there are 2 ports o each side of the ipac labelled 1a and 1b i think, do they go in there and does it matter which side they plug into?

now for the 2 pinball buttons, do you just plug them into any regular button port? so they will work, but the button that is also in that port will work it to?
this may sound confusing so im sorry.
