    OG is raising money to form a non profit community interest company enabling us to preserve more history than ever before!

    Unfortunately, like most things in life this is going to cost money and we're asking for some help from the community. All users will be given donator status, along with early updates and depending on how much you help us with we'll try to chuck in some free merch!

    This will cost us roughly $850 for two years including business address/phone number etc which is needed to register a business bank account within the UK.

    You can help us by making a custom pledge, or by making a general pledge as it all helps us greatly. We're happy for a one time donators via Ko-Fi, Patreon asks monthly so please be aware. To prevent charge backs we're unable to accept Paypal at this time. Although once live this will be sorted too!

    One time donations can be sent via our Ko-Fi,



    Or for monthly please visit our Patreon, Ko-Fi is preferred as they charge us less fee's. Become a Patron of Obscure Gamers!
  • The Obscure Gamers 2020 Light and Dark themes are now live! Please report any bugs and make any suggestions you may have to a member of staff.

Goes along with my ground chain / how to build custom fight stick videos. I’d had a lot of comments on how to use gator clips so I figured I’d do a tutorial. Hope it provides some help to someone :)

You know they sell multimeter leads that have clips?

They also sell ones that your existing probes go into directly.

Yeah. I appreciate the effort, but you can grab a set of those for a buck from China make your life easier. I will say though that I suppose for a one-off you can get the clips and multimeter at any hardware store in a pinch whereas these probes aren't typically available so it's still relevant.

It’s just based on what I have, plus the tutorial is also using gator clips to put a button inline on your setup so multimeter clips wouldn’t allow for that
