Ingredients:
Structure: some like these:

es.aliexpress.com/item/33004266279.html?...99-b580-3453faea8d88

Brown switches and keycaps (you can test another colors too): es.aliexpress.com/item/32682571027.html

Adapter : stepstick.pl/?35,en_usbjoy20-adapter-con...-your-own-usb-device

Cable with this kind of cable, you can play on amiga machine or pc with the adapter: www.amazon.es/dp/B01MXYZ8QO/ref=pe_3310721_189395781_TE_dp_1



Recipe:
- Mount your prefer disposal structure, with switches and capkeys.
- Cut cable (female side) and join the cables :
Ground cable will have to join all the switches, and we have to find which color is ground. (thanks Djowger!)
For me the colors that worked were:
--- blue for every switch (they have 2 pins, then join blue cable to one of every switch)
- and join on the other pin of each switch:
- - green for shoot
- - red for up
- - black for down
- - orange for right
- - grey for left
maybe if works for everyone or maybe you have to try and test it.

- make a knot on the cable just before exits the box, to stop it and don't break it later

- Put adaptor and weld/solder them after testing.

Enjoy

Nice info Gatifun. Just a small correction. The colors varies a lot from cable to cable, so blue is not always ground. From my experience it was mostly black but could be any of the colors. Below is an example of the soldering needed to make it work.



In my example you can see that black/red is soldered to every key, orange is fire button, white is up, blue down, and green and brown are sides.

Yeah, great info. I edit my first post
Exactly, it must be a previous try to find the right colors. Ground cable will have to join all the switches, and we have to find which color is ground. Good to know Djowger

I specially wanted to share too that you can solder the cables direct to the switch pins too, for me it was easier to understand the procedure.
