Okay, I ordered the above stick, a JFL and some sanwa buttons. While I was modding the stick I accidentally left the USB cable on the soldiering iron. It melted through the plastic and into a couple of wires.
I cut the cable and soldiered all the wires together and works ok now. Sometimes it doesn’t work though then I adjust the part of the cable when its all taped up and it works. I’ll probably need to do it again at some point.
So, my questions are:
Can I get rid of the current cable and use a generic USB cable and wire it onto the board?
If I cant use a generic USB cable, do I have to use a cable from a xbox 360 wired controller?
Can I use a generic extension cable and put the current cable inside the stick, leaving the USB connector poking out?
I haven’t opened a generic USB cable before but I have heard there are only four wires inside. The cable with the stick has five: white, black, red, green and an un-shielded wire.
Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.
