2 Pin Momentary Switches Viable?

Post by ShadowChaser » Mon Apr 16, 2018 12:38 pm

In the build guide I see that the switches used for the L and R buttons are the 4 pin variety, but the only momentary switches I have are of the two pin kind. Can they still be used in the same way?

i'm sure they still can, you only use two pins on the 4 pin variety anyway. Although i don't know exactly how the 2 pin ones work, so I may be incorrect.

4 pin switches used in most builds are actually just 2 poles. 2 of the legs are connected to side of the circuit, and the 2 remaining legs to the other side, so yes. It'll work fine. :)
