Is this 360 controller common-ground?


#1

I’m talking aboutthis one from DealExtreme.

I don’t care about the controls themselves as long as the electronic is common ground (and the Windows drivers are “standard” ie the MS ones are enough).


#2

no
most likely not


#3

Only one way to find out. Buy one and open it up yourself.


#4

As D3v said Only way for someone to find out is to open one up
I like to add have a multi-meter ready


#5

I asked this because someone might have ordered this controller before. I can use a multimeter, thank you

If its the same ones like the knockoff ones being sold on ebay, then yes it is common ground.

I do recall the analog stick directions acting funny when multiple buttons were press when I installed it in a dual mod (stand alone it was fine). Ended up adding diodes to some of the button signals.

I only had one of those pads so I didn’t have much of a chance to test if that was a one time thing or not. I didn’t really bother once I was able to get a good supply of fightpad/brawlpads.

Edit: If I remember right, I think the controller itself wasn’t that bad in quality to play games with.
