SO, I just finished wiring my joystick. My case isn’t ready, but I took a spare piece of wood, drilled the holes, and hooked everything up.
First the good news. Everything works. All buttons respond
The bad news. The stick is not smooth at all. Its an ultimate joystick, 8 way. I think the problem is with the 8 way actuator. If I slightly pull the stick up wards, it is way more smooth. I have the E-Ring in which holds it in place, although it only goes on maybe halfway. Do I need to force it in? Any clue whats wrong/how to fix the smoothness? Like I said, If I life up the stick just a little bit, it rases the actuator where it goes along the switches much, much smoother. I thought about putting some pennies under the washer as a temp fix. One other thing that may be a sign of something wrong, if I twist the joystick, the actuator twists. Not sure if it should do that, I could see it causing problems maybe?
