Akecon Original Here is an article on how to wire the harness.
The products to be used are as follows

20pin Joystick/Button Harness
4-Pin L3/R3/Touchpad Button Harness

The product being wired in this sample is shown here.

About the wiring location


Yellow Frameis 20Pin, the one with the big black connector and more cables.
The green frame is4-pin, with a small white connector and fewer cables.
The small red frameis the part where you do not need to stick cables.

It is difficult to understand by looking at the board alone, so here is the wiring.

You can see that the cable is not sticking out from the small red frame.
Be careful not to misorient the 20-pin cable, as it will not operate properly if it is inserted in the wrong direction.
This completes the connection of the 20-pin joystick/button harness.
Connect the 4-Pin L3/R3/Touchpad Button Harness to the corresponding points.
Next, let's wire the buttons and levers.


Wiring for buttons and levers

The main 20-pin cable is divided into five major categories, categorized and tie-wrapped.

  1. 5Pin connector for joystick lever connection
  2. Home, Share, and Options
  3. Punch system
  4. Kick System
  5. GND bead cable for punch and kick

We will start from the first and explain in this order.
The Street Fighter series has the most buttons for the punch and kick systems, so I will explain them accordingly.

Wiring of 5-pin connector for joystick lever connection

The lever is finished by inserting the 5-pin cable as it is.

The detailed explanation is as follows.

  1. Black is GND
  2. Green is right
  3. Yellow is left
  4. Orange is up
  5. Red is bottom


Basically, the 5-pin wiring of the lever is as shown above.

For STICKLESS [All-Button] type

When using the STICKLESS [All-Button] type, connect the 5-pin All-Button conversion harness as shown here.

The color of the wiring is shown below.

  1. Black is GND
  2. Green is right
  3. Yellow is left
  4. Orange is up
  5. Red is bottom

Wiring for home, share, option buttons, etc.

  1. Black is GND, wired to all various buttons
  2. White is option button in PS
  3. Red, share button in PS
  4. Gray, home button in PS

In this case, I wired the PS on the left, the share in the middle, and the option on the right.

Wiring around the punch

  1. Blue is weak punch
  2. Red is for medium punch
  3. Brown is strong punch
  4. Purple is three punches at the same time

Wiring for the kick system

  1. Orange is weak kick
  2. Yellow is medium kick
  3. Green is strong kick
  4. Black is 3 kicks at the same time

Wiring of GND bead cable for punches and kicks

  1. Wires for various punches and kicks

It is OK if this one can be wired to 8 buttons.

Wiring for touchpad buttons, L3 and R3

  1. Green is the touch pad
  2. Purple is L3
  3. Blue is R3
  4. Black is GND bead cable

The right touchpad, middle L3, and left R3 are wired in a slightly special way, but you can choose the location of this one if you like.

 This is how all ZERO ONE FIGHTSTICKs are wired in the sample.

ZERO TWO STICKLESS [All-Button] all wired together looks like this.

How was it?
The ZERO ONE FIGHTSTICK we used this time is easy to make and recommended because it is a little larger with more space, and optional buttons can be placed on the top panel.
Please give it a try.
