Just for those that are curious and havent seen the new fightpad’s PCB yet here are pictures with the signal lines marked for easy modding.
Common Ground PCB like the other fightpads this new version is cut down considerably than the other three types we have seen in the past. Notice the turbo button has been moved as well as the LT,LB triggers. The USB connection is also moved from its previous spot on the other fightpads. Also the LS,DP,RS switch is moved more to the center on the other side of the pcb. DP is still in center so make sure that you pay attention to what that switch is placed before modding. Nice thing with the new board is like the brawlpad the pcb is labled. every contact pad has a marking telling the modder exactly what that contact pad is for. The signal points have changed a little on some of the contact pads so I have posted the proper solder points of each signal line for those using this pcb in a dual mod.
Notice that the directionals contact pad is similar to the guide contact pad… no more GIANT space to solder directionals but still more than enough to dot with solder for a good connection. The small spot above the xguide is also not there as before the older fightpads had that convinient spot to solder guide signal lines to. Still a lot of space for guide but watch your soldering…
Depending on what you use and where you want the pcb placed in a case there is still some dead space on the PCB that can be cut/dremeled off to make this fit.
