Title: CD-i Controller Mod
Post by: Vyothric on May 10, 2013, 21:48:58 PM
I have one of these CD-i controllers:

I wired Up and the C button to a switch so I can use the C button to jump like on Mega Drive games. I also swapped the A & B buttons as (I think) A is normally the main action button.

I numbered some of the pins in red. I lifted pin 18 - This is up, so the black wire is soldered to this pin and goes to the middle of the switch. Blue wire = up on the d-pad - this is soldered to the point on the board beneath pin 18 - wire goes to one end of the switch. Yellow wire = C button - this goes to the other end of the switch.

Pins 1 & 24 are A & B. So to swap them I lifted both pins and wired them to the points on the board.

Where the red line is, there was a piece of metal connecting the two points. This is where the C button normally goes, so I removed it.

Does it improve the gameplay of the zelda plateformer?

Yeah, that was the main reason for modding it. Only played it briefly so far though, just to test it.
