Player 2 PCB:
This arcade controller board supports 2 x joysticks & 22 x arcade buttons. The PCB has 10 button inputs per player, with the addition of 2 extra inputs on the player 1 side. These extra inputs can be used as start buttons etc...
Works flawlessly and it came with pre-crimped wires which was a huge plus for me!
This interface board is handy as it combines two joystick sets in one board and thus only takes one USB port on your host machine. The downside is that software sometimes need to be patched to recognise the board as a dual-joystick system. Also, the wires are grouped in sockets of four each, and some buttons like ST, and SE for player 0 are at the edge of the pin layout, meaning that at least one of the sockets need to be connected so that it protrudes out of the edge of the board.
A quick and responsive, yet pretty cheap solution to wire your arcade controls.
I nearly always use the Xim Mo board in my arcade machines. I wire them to the buttons and joysticks and then use Recalbox on a Raspberry Pi3. Really easy to wire up and always works. Xin Mo = simple to use and setup
I've used these in four machines running RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi as well as in a custom joystick setup for a Windows PC. Pretty intuitive to set up and very flexible with regards button/joystick configuration. Highly recommended!!!
Linux: The XinMo PCB doesnt work with Linux kernel 3.10 properly (it doesnt get input from the left and up joystick). This happens because the signal for left and up the controller sends is out of range. But you can fix that by compileing the kernel with a patch, here is an easy tutorial for you: http://ithink.ch/blog/2013/09/08/patching_the_linux_kernel_to_install_the_xin-mo_dual_arcade_driver_on_a_raspberry_pi.html
Windows7: Works with no problems.
