The Bandai RX-78 uses a proprietary joystick port with an 8 pin din. This din should be a 2-3-3 layout with all pins symmetrical. It also makes use of two ground connections, Ground 1 provides Fire, Left and Up when connected to the relevant pins and Ground 2 provides Right and Down.

We received the Bandai RX-78 Personal Computer in an unboxing, unfortunately there were no joysticks and it has a proprietary joystick port. So what we need to do is work out how the joysticks work so we can connect a different joystick to is (maybe an Atari or Sega one).
The first of 3 unboxing videos featuring the giant delivery we received from Japan.
We open up the Bandai RX-78 Personal Computer that we received in an earlier video.
Unboxing from 20th of September 2018. A couple more parcels from Japan, once again fairly heavy on the PC Engine games but also with a couple of rare machines.
