Okay, this is my first ever woodworking and soldering project. I’ve done a pretty good job on the box just reading through various guides and winging it alittle. But, I am so freaking confused when it comes to soldering the controller to the joystick and buttons.
FYI, I have the early wired microsoft 360 controller.
Stupid question: Do you solder the up on the controller to the up on the joystick? or do you flip the directions since when you press up on a joystick it hits the down switch. (I hope this makes sense)
I will not be removing the triggers so I only need to solder RT1 and RT2-LT1/LT2(From what I have read) But how do I know which would be the ground?
Is there anyway to test for shorts or/and to test if the solder is connected properly?
If this goes wrong what is the easiest 360 controller to padhack, including RT and LT?
I think that’s about it, but if you have any other information or good threads/websites about this step please let me know.
Thanks for the help.
