bah that won't do. I really enjoyed using the start/select buttons. I'll see if I can get the file from Kite and order my own PCB

Actually, a specifically-designed PCB with that same form factor, fitting your bracket, but with double contact-pads (since select/start have 2 graphite pads) would be awesome...

I'm trying to make the new board - can you measure the distance between the contacts on the rubber start select buttons in mm please? center point to center point

Can someone measure the distance between center points on the pads under the start/select buttons? I need to make sure the pads I designed on this PCB are the correct distance apart.

This design is based on Kite's version 1.0 back board

@AntFJ: that is great!

If anyone interested in Kite's backboards, he shared them here: https://github.com/kiteretro/Circuit-Sword-PCBs

I ordered 3 (minimum amount) of Kite's 1.0B version at OSHPark, so I have two spares if anyone is interested.

I ordered
