ok, I desoldered the joy stick from the playstation controller board, and when I went to replace the pots on my aftermarket controller with the psx's assembley, I get barely any movement at all. Yes, the aftermarket n64 controller used pots, I am trying to replace it because the joystick broke off. can anyone give me insight? is it different currents? ranges? what?!!? [sorry if I ramble, or seem demanding, I get frustrated and I wana play zelda!
You have to make sure you hook up the same exact points. Like on my N64 controller it looks like this on the bottom of the joystick Pcb:. ...
Say the left 3 pins from bottom are 1,2,3 and the top 3 pins are 4,5,6 . On my N64 controller pins 2 and 4 are connected together and go to the 4 pin wire coming from the joystick Pcb. And 1 and 5 are connected together and go to another pin on the 4 pin wire. Then pin 3 goes to another of the 4 pin wires and pin 6 goes to the last.
So when you hook up the PSX joystick you need to make sure those same set of pins (2,4 and 1,5) are hooked together and the solo pins are solo. Then they need to be wired to the 4 pin connector in the same order.
*That was just an example from memory, the pins connected together and solo will probably be different on your joystick,
