picadeX hat, dedicated plasma connector

Can’t figure this out, at first i tried directly connecting my picade plasma 6 buttons to the dedicated plasma controller on the bottom left side of the hat, and had numerous issues with plasmad service and plasmactl, and the example scripts. These problems disappeared when i hooked the first plasma pcb to the hack header instead of the dedicated plasma connector. DO i need to run a separate daemon for each connector? Will i need to direct commands differently if so?

please help if you have any information on the differences between the 2 connection methods.


I don’t own one, but as far as I know its a pin for pin match. The extra connector is for convience. This link should get you some help with this. It’s on the shop page.
