I am currently doing a complete modification to an old Hori stick. For overall completion, I decided to swap PCBs for best compatibility. Here’s the prob. The supposed SRKer’s choice PCB is the DualShock One PCB. I did some researching (of course) and found out the fastest and most convenient hack is SpiffyShoe’s solder-less mod (http://home.comcast.net/~spiffyshoes/DualShockHack/).
I did a ton of Googling and eBaying and unfortunately, I cannot find the blue controller as described in the picture! I came across a ton of bootlegs and non-blue DS1s, but not the one in the picture. I did come across a light, light blue, but it has gray analog sticks and cord, unlike the black analog sticks and cord seen on Spiffy’s site. My question is, is the A series limited to the blue color? I read Spiffy’s page again and he mentions to look at colored DS1s. I came across a red DS1 and I think an emerald DS1… if anybody knows, is the solder-less hack limited to that elusive blue DS1? If not, anybody know a place where I can get one? My local sources do not have anything pre-PS2… which sucks. And lastly, am I all wrong, and is that gray button/cord blue DS1 an A-series?
Thanks to all who have read this far. Major thanks to those with more information.
