UPDATE- MARCH 2013 - I am closing shop. Thank you for all your support.

I have an inventory Zero Delay Encoder Boards in stock. They are now improved. All the wires now have the wider .187 inch terminal connectors on the end for better versatility connecting to your arcade parts. The good news is that the price is still at a low 14.75 per board shipped in the US. International is simply the difference in shipping added to the price. Feel free to PM me for a price quote. :D

Now the board has always come with 4 wires for a joystick and 8 wires for buttons, but board is capable of taking up to 12 button wires, and some people have expressed interest in utilizing all wires. I am happy to announce that I now offer an option to purchase the board with 4 joystick wires and 12 button wires! The price for the board with the extra wires is $17.50 after shipping in the US. As with the 14.75 option, international price is only the cost difference in shipping added. PM me for a quote. - For those that have already made a purchase and want extra wires, I will happily send you the additional wires at $3.50 shipped for each set of 4 wires. domestic or international. Just let me know!


Here is the board:

Zero Delay Arcade Control Encoder



The Zero delay is the most cost effective encoder option available. It is plug and play, lag free and very compact. (8.5 cm X 3.5 cm X 1 cm)


The Zero Delay board comes with:

  • USB Cable
  • 4 Wire sets for joystick.
  • 8 Wire sets for 8 buttons, or 12 wire sets if you want to upgrade.
  • Instructions


The Zero Delay also has these additional features for those that wish to utilize them:

  • Hat switch for secondary joystick, POV controls, or console style gaming controls
  • Autofire option
  • Rapidfire option
  • 5 pin port for Japanese (Sanwa) ports




FAQ:

Q: What method does this board encode the controls?
A: Controls are encoded like a gamepad.

Q: How do I hook up the controls?
A: one end of the wire plugs right into the board port, the other end connectors into the joystick or button switch. The included instructions will let you know what each port maps to. The terminals will fit up to .187 size terminals, which is the most common size for arcade switches. If you have switches that take the larger .25 terminals, you can either soldier on the terminals or crimp on new connectors.

Q: Have these boards been inspected?
A: Each board was given QC initials. Also, I have personally plugged every board in my PC and determined that it registers correctly with the PC. I have also visually inspected all the wires and boards.

Q: How should payment be made?
A: I am set up for Paypal. If you are interested in purchasing, send me a PM.

Q: Is this compatible with PS3?
A: I have had a chance to try it out, yes, it worked great. It should be great for fighters! Just bear in mind that there is no Home button. If you need an encoder with a PS3 Home button, check out my ZD Rematch!

Q: Does it need special software?
A: It uses the standard joystick drivers on the computer, no software needed!


Thank you!!
Vigo

These look very familiar. Do you know if it's compatible with the PS3 and does it have "start" and "select"?


Thanks.

I may be asking the same question as directly above...

Getting ready to build a cabinet for a friend on the cheap. Will these work in MAME on a standard PC?

Does anyone know what type of connector that is on the board end of the wires (the white one)? Does it have a specific name?

Sorry, its a crazy busy morning for me. I will reply to pm's soon.  :)



These look very familiar. Do you know if it's compatible with the PS3 and does it have "start" and "select"?

There are button slots for select and start. It comes with enough buttons to cover a standard "dual shock" style controller. While the board can be wired up for up to 12 buttons, it only comes with enough wires to cover 8 buttons. Unfortunately, that's how they just come. You can solder for the the remaining slots, but like yotsuya I am also trying to find out what kind of connector is being used. If anyone knows, it would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I have not tried on the PS3. I have a PS3, so I will try hooking it up tonight. I will post my results.  :cheers:

PBJ gets a star! That looks to be the connector.

Here is the first website I checked:

http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/1164

$0.75 per cable. I will check into ordering a batch as well.

Seems to me you could use one of these to make a 2 player classic cab:

P1 - joy
p2 - POV hat

3 buttons per
1 start per
1 coin per

plus an exit button - that's all the inputs and 11 buttons...

Well, you could do a 2player, 3 button panel?

1pjoy - joy
2pjoy - 4 buttons
3 buttons per player
2 coin
2 start
1 exit

Wouldn't that work?

Pretty sure they're JST XH 2-pin connectors.  They're used on battery packs.

If you are wiring the POV Hat mode as a shift function button, then I think you could do that.

Without the hat switch it would be 3 buttons short. (4 buttons for 2nd joy, 6 for game buttons, 4 for select and start buttons and 1 exit button needed)

If I were doing it, I would give P2 the dedicated joystick, then give P1 a real coin and start button. Player two would just need to hit the hat switch and press left on the joystick for coin and right for start. Then you could make hat switch and up as the game exit.

I am considering buying more. I am looking to see how the rest of this batch sells, and what kind of feedback I get on the encoder first.

I am also looking into other products that would interest people if I could get them cheaper from overseas. Suggestions would be welcome. I already looked into finding a cheaper spinner from overseas, but after talking to some arcade enthusiasts in China, I have come to the conclusion that they rarely use them or make them to begin with.

Buy some of the spinners anyway.  I'm getting sick of my mouse hack.

Got mine in the mail today.  Shipping was fast and packaging is perfect.  Thanks Vigo!  The board looks nice from what I can tell.  It does turn out that it doesn't work with the x-arcade switches so I'll need to go get the other connectors.  Does anyone know what type of connectors they use?

Thanks!

I'd really love to find something, and I am seriously looking into it. I understand why some would want an $80-150 spinner, but there has got to be some alternative out there. It's a metal shaft with an encoder. A ball mouse has a more similar encoder board, and they can be found at the dollar store.
