Virtual On Arcade TwinSticks


I purchased a set of arcade Virtual On Twinsticks (MSB 3.3). These things are a decade old, and weigh more than I do. They arrived July 4, 2009 and cost $150 (about the same cost as either the Saturn or Dreamcast Twinsticks)

I no longer intend to wire it to a wired 360 controller, since I have a TwinStick EX for 360

Thankfully it uses quick-disconnects (like you see on a PC power supply) so I don't have to do any soldering on the controller side

Problems (in order of severity from least to worse):

-The graphic sheet is destroyed.
I have emailed SEGA, and hopefully they will let me buy a new one,
Otherwise, I print one up

-One of the grounding circle thingies are broken
This isn't much of a problem, as they are cheap and easily replaceable
If SEGA lets me buy the other stuff, they'd probably let me buy one of these too

-I have no idea which wire does what
I have emailed SEGA, and hopefully they do know
If I can find my digital multimeter, I may be able to work it out for myself

-I don't know how to solder
I can learn

-I don't want to sacrifice a controller
I will try to make it so it's still usable.

-I don't want to make it for 360
I will pray SEGA makes a PS3 version of the game

-I need female quick-disconnects
I have emailed SEGA, and hopefully they will let me buy 2 pairs

-The back of the controller is open/uncovered, since it's supposed to be mounted on an arcade system
I will need to design some sort of stand for it. The problem is being able to support the weight, and be collapsible to take up less storage space
I'm thinking normal door hinges for the feet of the stand (to prevent it from topping over and crushing me)  so they will fold inwards
Either a telescoping pipe system, with pegs to stop them from falling down in use, or an accordion/scissor-like X system (again with telescoping pipes) that unfolds and some peg/latch to hold it in place



Oki, so I can account for:

Big (Sticks) connector
Row A
1 <BLANK> = Empty
2 Brown + White = Right Stick, Right direction
3 Blue + White = Right Stick, one of the buttons
4 Pink = Left Stick, Left direction
5 Purple = Left Stick, Down direction

Row B
1 White
2 Green + White = Right Stick, Up direction
3 Fuchsia + White = Right Stick, one of the buttons
4 Light Orangy, brownish? = Left Stick, Right direction
5 Blue = Left Stick, one of the buttons

Row C
1 Pink + White = Right Stick, Left direction
2 Purple + Black = Right Stick, Down direction
3 White
4 Green = Left Stick, Up direction
5 Fuchsia = Left Stick, one of the buttons

Small (START) connector
Row D
1 White = I'd assume START
2 <BLANK>
3 Green = Thick Grounding Wire

Row E
1 Yellow = START
2 Blue + White = I'd assume START
3 Pink + Black = START

(Of course I remember now that the sticks aren't analog, after I made the pic)
