The March 2012 issue—which the editorial department is now finishing up—features an in-depth article about Chris Cantrell’s Propeller-based gaming platform.
As you’ll learn, the replacement circuit board has five switch pads. A yellow conductive button is mounted, and the casing acts like a spring for the internal conductive disk. Chris explains that the circuit components are soldered to the surface of the other side of the board. The portable DVD TV display is sideways to match the rotation of the arcade monitor in the real system.
