This made a convenient place to run wiring that would then be concealed TRUSTMASTER Dance Mat the fixed center square and corner pieces. It really didn't have to be this complex but the mat was made on a budget and I wanted to re-use materials that I already had.
I scaveneged four tactile tact switches from the control panel of an old vcr to place under each of the four direction pads. As it serendipitously turned out the square body of the switches was the same height as the board used for the middle layer. By drilling a hole for each of the switches only the button protruded and the body of the switch was protected by the board. As a result they could take a serious pounding without being damaged. TRUSTMASTER Dance Mat switches were wired using flexible flat ribbon cable - which was also scavenged - from an old dot matrix printer.

One end of the cable was split into four strips and folded to run underneath the middle layer to each of the switches while the the other end was wired to an old pin parallel printer cable. Two pieces of pink camp mat foam were duct taped on either side of each switch so the weight of the direction pads didn't depress the switch and to give the TRUSTMASTER Dance Mat some bounce. This compressed nicely when you stepped on the pad so that the switch was depressed. The picture below right shows the area beneath the right-hand side pad with the red arrow indicating the position of the tact switch.
With the switches mounted the fixed centre square and the four corner triangles were then mounted and held in place with wood screws. These acted as guides that allowed the direction pads to move up and down but restricted their horizontal movement. The direction pads themselves were held in place with tasteful yellow duct tape which was also used to make the arrows on each pad. My kids then added some custom artwork and the completed pad can be seen TRUSTMASTER Dance Mat the picture below right.
At this point I faced that classic problem: Joystick Hacking StepMania was able to accept joystick input and so I decided to hack my Thrustmaster USB joypad and TRUSTMASTER Dance Mat it to connect the dance pad to the computer. I still wanted to be able to use the joypad so I placed a female 25 pin D-SUB parallel port connector underneath the joystick.
Although I only needed 4 buttons for the dance mat I decided to wire all of the joypad's connections to the D-SUB connector. The joypad used a common connection for all of the buttons and the direction pad requiring a total of 13 pins on the connector: There were only a few solder pads that could be wired without interfering with the normal operation of the buttons so for most of the connections I carefully scratched the green coating off to reveal the copper and soldered the wire to the track.

I initially wired the DB connector so that the 4 direction pads on the mat were mapped to up, down, left and right on the joypad.
