Im about to start building my first fight stick, and ive decided to do it for the 360 since its the main console I use at the moment. Im just trying to decide on a casing then im going to start ordering parts.
My main question is with the Sanwa JLF type joysticks and the fact they have a 5 pin connector. Would I just solder each of the wires that come off the 5 pin wire to the corresponding Up, Right, Down, Left of the D-Pad and then the black to a single ground of one of these? I’ve seen a few tutorials for connecting the Joystick straight to the PCB however these were all going straight to the switch’s and not using a connector.
If I need any other equipment please let me know. Im also wondering where it is possible to get some connectors for the wires, so I can quickly disconnect during painting and assembly to make sure things are working.
And finally does anybody know of any UK dealers where I can get these parts? I really dont fancy getting raped by lizardlick everytime I need an item, as most likely my casing will be coming from the US (Yet to meet any UK builders).
