I just bought my first stick. After years of pad play I felt the urge to try it. I bought a nice, cheap, well reviewed starter stick. (Venom Fight Stick)
I started practising, and everything feels really good. Except I feel like the stick has a kind of awkward stock joystick. (right inputs off and misaligned and I have to move the stick further on the right than on the left). Overall sort of janky feeling stick. So I decided to buy a Sanwa JLF Joystick to replace it. Feels way more responsive out of the box. However when I opened up the fight stick I noticed that the stock joystick has soldered wires instead of the 5 pin connector. I’m not quite sure what I need to do to to properly put in the new stick. The JLF stick has a 5 pin connector with 5 wires on the other side. But the stock stick has 6 soldered wires connected to the joystick’s PCB and the other side is 4 2(?) pin connectors labelled up, down, left, right on the controller PCB.
I don’t know much about hardware so bare with me on a few things, but how do I install the new stick?
