UWRC PC Engine Shuttle Controller

Juli 30th, 2016

A futuristic styled Controller for the PC-Engine Shuttle. Now its time to make it wireless.

thanks to the PCB of micro and some reposition of the led usb powersupply it works great.

I put it at the hole of the original wire and with some hotglue it works

PC Engine Duo R/RX RGB Mod with bypass PCE-TV

Juli 27th, 2016

Nothing really new, only to see how to add THS Amplifier working in a Duo R / RX.

I used Pin 44 of HU C6260 C-Sync for Sync. So you have to cut the Video Signal to the Din Connector (yellow wire).

Black wire is optional, for “more” GND

 

duo_rx_1

For the Din Pinout I used the old French Layout born in the 90ths. With RGB added to the 3 new Pins of the Din 8.1. The rest of Pins are untouched (exeption C-Sync)

3 resistors 22 Ohm are used for make PCE-TV work to output around 0,7V. The PCB is the 1st Revision of micro. Power is taken from a Elko nearby. (orange/black=GND, orange/red=5V)

Jailbars removement

After checking the picture there are jailbars :-(

After replacement of two  capacitor the picture is great.

replace C909 and C923 with 4,7uf down under Hu C6260

UWRC PC-Engine Cordless Controller

Juli 21st, 2016

I done some ironical way of UWRC ;-)
Here i am using 3 of the 4 Batteries for powersupply of the UWRC, because of the max. voltage of 5,5V of the UWRC Board.

UWRC NES japanese Famicom Controller

Juli 21st, 2016

For make it fit into a japanese Famicom Pad you have to cut the PCB at the edges and re add the cutted circuit board.

UWRC NeoGeo Board

Juli 21st, 2016

I sacrifice my NeoGeo Board to make it wireless with uwrc. thanks to micro again.

Here I used my Led modded NeoGeo Controller and put all together. Because of the Leds and more need of current. I used a bigger LiPo. The future will tell how long it works.

UWRC Competition Pro

Juli 21st, 2016

I used a Competition Pro USB (bad USB lag) and changed it into a UWRC Controller.

It uses Button, A,B,Select,Start (on the triangle Buttons). With the small black switch you can select the triangle Buttons between Select,Start and Button X,Y.

UWRC Competition Pro Mini

Juli 21st, 2016

I bought some Competition Pro Mini and most of them have brocken microswitches :-(

I found some replacements here:

http://www.voelkner.de/products/43525/Microschalter-Ultraminiatur-5A-250V-Sim.-R.-Hebel.html

It was very tricky to add the Universal TX PCB in this tiny stick but after all it looks great :-)
After removing original parts I add a Led and two more micro switches for Select and Start.

The chrome switch to swap between Layout Select/Start and Button X, Button Y

I must move the electronic of the LiPo to put it between the two fire Buttons

UWRC Rules

Juli 21st, 2016

I done some UWRC Controller in the past.

Look here for my current Collection. It rules, because its great to have wireless original Controller in you hands and its crosscompatible. You can play eg. with the NeoGeo Controller @ NeoGeo Console, or @ Sega Mega Drive, or @ Super Nintendo, or @ Sega Saturn.

Other way is possible too. You can play with a Sega Saturn Controller @ NeoGeo Console, or @ Sega Mega Drive, or @ Super Nintendo, or @ Sega Saturn.

And you are free with controller and console
