    Are you trying to use a PSII pad on a supergun?
    Or are you trying to Use a Neo/SG stick on a PSII system?

    Personally I would use a PS1 Dual Shock controller. Easier to hack and compatible with controller converters. You can do a solderless hack with those translucent PS1 dual shocks, but it takes the fun out of it.
    If it says..."100% Working"...it's a boot.

    Yes...Find one spot on the PCB that is ground, and you are good to go. No need to ground each button.

    Sounds like you know what you are doing, just make sure you ground the microswithces. Link them all together to that one ground wire on the PCB.

    yeah, ive done some xbox ones already. the problem with a lot of them is you need individual grounds (or a resistor on each) which just isnt viable with a db15 connector. i did find that the madcatz ones work great. one ground, no ghosting.

    ive also done some pc pads that just used separate grounds entirely.

    so i wanted to be sure i didnt run into these problems.

    its getting pretty hard to find ps1 stuff anymore.
