Default GA-8PENXP and Game Port header

GA-8PENXP and Game Port header

The Pin outs for this game port header does not follow the same naming
convention as the standard. Can anyone out there tell me what these equate
to as compaired to the standard game ports? Below I have two columns, in
the first column is the Giga-byte pin out header for the game port as shown
in the manual. The nomenclatures for each pin is a little cryptic. I also
think that there was a mistype for pin 2, the book showed GRX1_R but I think
it should have been GPX1_R. Anyway, in the second column I have pasted
what I think these cryptic headers correlate to in the standard pin outs.



This is an index of what I think this cryptic shorthand stands for;

The VCC stands for +5V power.

GND = of course Ground

GPX1_R = Game Port X Axis 1st joystick (I don't know what the _R means in
these)

GPY1_R = Game Port Y Axis 1st Joystick
GPX2_R = Game Port X Axis 2nd Joystick

GPY2_R = Game Port Y Axis 2nd Joystick

GPSA1 = Game Port Switch, A Joystick Button 1

GPSA2 = Game Port Switch, A Joystick Button 2

GPSB1 = Game Port Switch, B Joystick Button 1

GPSB2 = Game Port Switch, B Joystick Button 2

MSI_R = Midi Switched Input

MSO_R = Midi Switched Output



Anyway, here is what i think the pin-outs should be, correct me if i am
wrong...



G-B Pin out for Game Port according to manual, with what I think the
matching standard pins should be.

15. 15. +5V Power

16. 16. No Pin



I currently have a FrontX front panel and internal game port setup
(www.frontx.com) and must move the pins to match my MO-BO. I wanted to make
sure of the pin-out conversion before I started. Any light on this subject
would be a great help...



Thanks..

Tim, I am sorry, but you are wrong. The error was in the Standar
pinout you used at the bottom. The pinout you used is the pinout for
motherboard connector. The pinout commonly used on different brands o
motherboard. Unfortunately the pinout of a Joystick 15 Pos D-SUB i
quite different. Follow this link for a correct wiring diagram, or loo
below.

I have altered your pinout to show the correct wiring:
