I have a question about how the thumbstick on the Xbox 360 pad works. What I want to do is to restrict the thumbstick to only up and down movement. I was thinking I could desolder the mechanism from the bottom side, remove the entire stick assembly from the pcb, somehow cover or block the contacts for left and right then resolder the assembly back.
Does anyone have any experience removing these things? Or, even better, do any of you gamepad gurus have a better idea? I’ve got one practically ruined MadCatz pcb that I can experiment with, and as soon as I’m able to I will…but I was hoping for any support I could get going in.
Thank you as always for any advice you can offer.
