I just got my TE stick today, so I decided to crack open my crappy Powerwave stick. My plans were to build a new stick with the existing PCB. After opening it, I’m confused like shit… I’ve read heaps of threads in modding sticks etc but don’t wtf some things are.
Now my problem is, wtf is the motor thingy doing there? Do I need this if I just want to use this PCB and change buttons and joystick? Also, another really noobie question but I know once I get sanwa buttons that I will have to solder the wires onto the PCB. But when I opened this crappy stick, none of the buttons are soldered on! It’s a like a press/touch mecahnic (is this even normal?)
Once again, sorry guys but I’m stuck and need some help from you experienced modders out there!
