Last Updated 7/7/2016 -18 NeoGeoX cases left.
This is a pre-order for Ninja or Super Ninja Controller (multi-console arcade controller).
If you like the NeoGeoX controller. Use multiple older games consoles (Atari, Coleco, Intellivision, Vectrex, etc). And wish you could use one controller to support all of these older game systems, then these controllers are for you.
The "controller smarts" are in the cartridge, and the controller is just a bunch of buttons, wires and microswitches connecting to the cart. This makes the base controller very adaptable to support more consoles in the future.
Steps to use:
Plug in proper Ninja controller cartridge into controller
Plug controller into game console
Turn on console and play
Make sure to have the proper Ninja Cart in the controller before turning on game console and pressing buttons. Some game consoles output +5VDC on different pins. You wouldn’t want to short the +5VDC power pin to ground as this will cause harm to your game console.
Example: You plug in the VEC (Vectrex) cart into the SNC controller, you then plug the controller into NeoGeo game console. Then you press button A or Select or D. You have now just shorted +5VDC power from the NeoGeo to ground. This will cause harm to your console. Don’t do this. Always check to make sure you have the proper cart in the controller before turning on game console.

2-way games are fine with either 4 or 8 way gate.
4-way games with 8-way gate are not good.
4-way games with 4-way gate are great
8-way games with 4-way gate are horrible
8-way games with 8-way gate are great
2-way games: Astrosmash, Space Armada, Space Patrol
4-way games: Boulder Dash, D2K, DK Arcade, Christmas Carol, Thunder Castle, Burgertime, Lock N Chase, Dig Dug, Frogger, Night Stalker, Ms. Pac-Man, Beauty and Beast, Super Chef BT, Donkey Kong Junior, Ms. Night Stalker, Piggy Bank

Directions to change the Joystick Gate:
1) Remove rubber feet.
2) Remove 4 screws to open case.
3) Remove 8 screws to remove gate
4) Put on new gate, make sure little posts on the gate fit into holes in the microswitches - gate, microswtches should all be level. Re-install the same 8 screws from step 3
5) Turn case to look at back of it. Put top and bottom of case together. Do not use the screws to force the top and bottom together. Re-install the 4 screws from step 2.
Do not change gate often as screw holes are plastic, not metal threaded, hence can wear out.
If you do change, make sure to not over-tighten them
When re-installing the screws It helps to put screw in place and turn to loosen, this helps the screw find the old groove vs. making new ones. If screw is hard to turn back-out and repeat this process.
Directions to remove rubber feet:
1-Use small flat blade screw driver edge, press into side of rubber foot and lift.
