Based on that image, if you put the DIP switches like the first diagram, it should work with just an AT to PS2 passive adapter.

That is very interesting that it can also do XT (it says WYSE as well, but I assume that is PS2 and not the other WYSE).

I seem to recall running into a spring like that with a Wheelwriter (if memory serves). It was around / under the spacebar barrel as well.

Do the new F62 / F77 PCBs work OK with an original layout xwhatsit? From both the analog threshold POV and from the controller stability POV? Or, do you also see the !1 / 192 issue with the original controller?

I predict now it's over, the Republicans will stand behind Trump and try to make the best of him, because otherwise the other guy (Clinton) will get in. As much as that sucks; will probably go that way. If the Repubs, Libertarians an Indepedents don't rally behind Trump - we'll end up with Hitlery.

I wouldn't think it would work if you had anything between the PCB and the flippers. You wouldn't change the capacitance of the pads enough for the controller to pick up if you did.

I do agree with re-using the rubber matt between the PCB and the bottom plate - much more elegant than tape.

Yeah, an RPi has more than enough horsepower and expansion ability, but you would still need to build the cap-sense portion of the controller. wcass - I'd sign up to help with this controller, but I don't have ready access to a scope in TX or VA (where I am most of the time).

Without a scope to see what the rate is; I would just swag it. You have a pair of 30pF caps now (C1=C2), and it appears not to be working (or in other words if CS was 3, then your 30pF should be good for an 18CL on the crystal). So I think we can ASS-U-ME that the CS =/= 3. If we go with a CS=4, the...

Both C1 and C2 are 30pF? If yes and assuming the PCB has a stray capacitance of 4pF gives: CL = (C1 * C2) / (C1 + C2) + Cstray ((30*30)/(30+30))+4 = 19CL [close to the 18CL specified] C1, C2 = 2*CL – 2*Cstray Or, (2*18)-(2*4) = 28pF [close to the 30pF caps used] If CS=3, then the 30pF and 18CL value...
