Also, thanks to @IAmOrion for his Leonardo code.

I needed to reduce bounce and this works perfectly.

Wired up the Leonardo this evening and tested. All working nicely. Plugged it into my original GBZ and added as an additional controller.

Thanks to @sotasystems for this, first Leonardo ive used and the guide was spot on.

My setup is standard with L1 and R1 for this build.

Hey, i'm going to use those same L/R buttons in my 3rd GBZ. When it comes to wiring I see that you have the bottom pin wired to ground and the top to the teensy. Can you tell me what orientation the buttons need to be in for that configuration? I haven't used them in anything yet and I don't have one in front of me to have a look, I plan to do it after I get home from work. Let me know if you have any advise.

Hey @rodocop

Being honest, as these switches are also 4 pin I assumed they would follow the same wiring as the smaller tactile switches used by @wermy.

I therefore glued them in without testing them.

When I wired them up I found that R1 wasn't working, even though its orientation and wiring was same as the L1 switch.

This lead me to believe that I had either used a dud switch or one that wasnt necessarily the same as the L1 switch.

I therefore swapped the ground and Leonardo wires over and retested and this worked fine.

I have since used these switches again on my 4th build and this time no issues.

I decided to share ground across the trigger buttons top outer pins.

I used the L1 button bottom left outer pin to attach to Ground on the PCB .

I then wired the bottom inner pins for the L and R buttons and wired to the PCB respective pads / holes.

Hope this makes sense.

This one is now sold so putting together the 'pack' before it goes.

Waiting on some screen protectors and some red headphones.

The USB stick will have the Quick Guide on that I'm making.

Hopefully a full manual in due course.

It's just going to be a pdf of the GBZ. A quick hardware overview and key functions etc.

Hey Lphillimore, i'm wondering about your wiring for the usb audio.
Do you mind to explain it a little bit more?
I tried to follow the guide from Kilren, but I can't get mine to work.
Thanks in advance.
