Dear Retropie Users.

I ordered a double arcade kit from Banggood, wanted to let you know my Findings.

It now looks something like this:

I ordered printable sticker foil, I will remove the protection layer and add a design.
I made this in Photoshop

If you want to build one of your own, this is what I did (after testing)

The board has 12 connectors for buttons.
I used and SNES controller as reference.
My Button Layout is 
Y X L
B A R

Had to rearrange a bit, but you want I connected it to the board like
K4, K1, L2
K3, K2, R2
Please note, board is flipped for connecting

There is a L1 and R1 on the board as well, I got into some weird menu's in MAME / Arcade games with those.
The Select and Start Work with SE and ST connectors.

I had one broken button, short circuited. And this messed up my controls. Also don't boot with an untested stick. 
Since my button short circuited, the loading time was very very long.

Used the pictures in this link on how to connect the joystick cable properply

I am sharing these pics from Google drive Is that not allowed?
