Being 13 and new to electronics, I find it amazing that I actually kind of understand one thing about electronics - arcade wiring. For an upcoming project (involving an SNES, my favorite console), I decided to use arcade controls. However, I still have just a few questions that I know the electrical Jesuses here can help me with.
1. I found this - http://arcadecontrols.com/arcade_achilles.shtml
- and this made it kind of clear. Solder the wires to the PCB and connect to the NO on the arcade button/joystick direction. However, I saw a tutorial on an Xbox 360 controller arcade mod that you need to scrape off some of the PCB and solder to the copper. Is this just limited to the Xbox controller or do I need to do the same for the SNES controller?
2. Another thing that was brought up was ground. I know that I can find one ground point and daisy chain it to all of the arcade buttons, but the main question is the ground itself. Where is ground on an SNES controller (or in general)?
