Hey tech gurus. I recently bought a generic PS3 controller on eBay in hopes of maybe finding a cheap gem good for padhacking. Alas, the PCB ended up not having a common ground, but one shared ground for each side of the PCB (one for the dpad and L shoulders, one for the face buttons and R shoulders).
Just out of curiosity, I tied the two grounds together (just using loose wire), and tested all the buttons - they all responded fine from the new “common” ground". Anyone know if this is a good or bad idea for any reason?
If anyone has any experience hacking it.
