    AES DB15 pinout question - ANSWERED

    I am building my own six button stick for my supergun, but I have a few questions in regards to pinouts on the DB15 connector

    Basically I have two pinouts, one from the supergun maker and one not, both for the neo geo

    Does the supergun (in French) have an incorrect pinout, or did they swap pins for some strange reason?

    Basically, what is the correct pinout?

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Both are correct for the standard 4 button AES layout. I think using 2, 9 and 10 respectively as the "kick" buttons is the accepted way of doing things. I would just go by however your Supergun is setup.

    I moved in with EG. We've got a Perfect Strangers situation happening.

    The english pinout picture is as it says, looking at the connector from the outside of the console. The french pinout is for when you are soldering to the connector on the inside of the console. I'm sure you can adapt that to a controller, should be pretty much the same idea.

    Ok I follow. Basically the French diagram shares the same AES standard for a normal four button AES stick, but some extra items have been swapped around. So I'll just connect via the French diagram and end up 100%.

    First time doing this, my brain was getting foggy looking at the two (and I sprayed spray paint in my house earlier...haha)

    If you look at the typical Neo Geo pinout, you'll notice it's incredibly easy to wire, the diagram isn't really needed. Just know that when you are soldering, start on the far left pin and go in a diagonal up-down fashion.

    +5v, Up, Down, Left, Right, A, B, C, D, Start, Select, nothing, nothing, nothing, GND

    I'm going to prototype it w/ a DB15 field termination part before soldering anyway...the stick might not live in the enclosure I have currently

    Oh whoops, I thought you meant the extra buttons, not the view of the pins since both are labeled with the correct pin #s.

    No worries...I got what you meant

    So you really aren't in Chicago any more?

    Unfortunately there is no real standard for where the extra buttons go. If you're going to use any premade adapters or controllers you'll need to find the pinout. Personally, I wire everything the same as JNX.

    That’s what I’ve discovered. Outside of the standard four AES buttons, the rest are up in the air. I guess I was looking for standardization where there isn’t any.

    I’m just wiring this as a six button supergun stick so really it’s single use

    Surprised that none of these follow HMGs logic... Time for a new standard

    +5v, Up, Down, Left, Right, A, B, C, D, Start, Select, K1, K2, K3, GND
