Had to bite off the outer part of the 3d-printed part and then it fit fine.
Board has to go on top, otherwise USB and analog volume control will be at an angle instead of parallel with the casing.

I haven't ever seen the volume board version so I'm not sure why it didn't fit. glad you got it worked out.

For thread continuity the board normally goes over.

Thanks for these files! I'm building a CS right now, and using your psp joystick holder. Did you use any glue or epoxy for it, or does the board hold it in place?

I would use a dab of hot glue to hold the bracket down and then use a toothpick to add epoxy to the edges. This is required for the joysticks or they could just pop out when playing

Sorry to bump an old post but I have a question. I ordered both AntFJ’s PCB and HoolyHoo’s slim 4 button kit. I was wondering which feels better. I think this looks better for sure, but not sure how the start / select buttons feel verses round rubber buttons. Maybe I should make two Circuit Swords, =).....only if they were a bit cheaper.

they feel exactly like the start/select buttons feel so you can turn any gameboy around and get a feel what it would be like to push one on the the back. If you are looking for a button with some feedback then don't use the start/select buttons.
