well, after messing up 2 saitek pads i decided to go with an original wired ms controller yesterday… well, for the first time the triggers work perfectly, but my sticks is in a totally fubar condition.
i use a seimitsu ls32 (so 2 connections per switch), i ran 1 wire from each switch to tp32-35 according to the trace done by rdc here: http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?showtopic=635462
i then tried daisy chaining the each of the other wire of all the 4 switches to ground… no go. okay, maybe thats because of the common line setup.
i then tried running the daisy chain to the right pad of back button which is labeled as common line for all the buttons.
apparently this was not a good idea.
the stick works fine in the xbox menus, however in any game down-right is constantly active. however i think this might be the left analog stick instead of the dpad.
oh, and i had to solder to the tps as i just couldn’t get the solder to stick on the spots for the dpad at the front, ripping 2 points off in the process (yes, i did scrape them before trying to solder).
does anybody have a tip what to do or where to solder the daisy chain to? please i’m quite desperate, i don’t want to have wasted yet another controller.
