I am 40 years old and now find myself embarking on my first joystick build along with my 12 year old son, thanks to SF4!
I have made the box and ordered the buttons and stick. I have now managed to get a PS1 early A model SCPH1200. I intend to plug it into my PS3 by way of adaptor.
I have some questions:
Can I ignore the analogue button and remove the analogue sticks without detriment? I have read slagcoin’s guide and it would seem not, but I have seen images of much smaller PCBs. (perhaps other models?)
The peachy coloured dots on the PCB that are shown on images to solder too, do they need prep/scratching or can we solder straight to these.
