I have a Sanwa JLF-TP8Y that I am wanting to put into a stick I’m building. This stick uses a DB-25 connector to interface with multiple boards, becoming a universal stick. The problem I have is that one of the pads I’m connecting to (a nyko dreamcast controller) is a dual-ground pcb. One set of grounds goes to DOWN, RIGHT, and the C and Z buttons (also function as L/R). Therein lays my problem… how can I separate the grounds on a Sanwa JLF joystick?
That’s what the board looks like… if I desolder two of the microswitches I’m worried that it’ll become unstable. Any ideas?
