hey guys, as a boredom project and because im trying to learn about controller hacking, i'm hoping to wire an atari controller this weekend. the controller has 6 wires i beleive, and five buttons. my plan was to get some pc board, lay some tact switches how i like, take the wires from the chip board from the atari joystick, and wire them in the correct way to these pinouts. there are no IC's on the boards so i figured it would work. if this will not work, please tell me, but i was wondering how you wire tact switches, because they have four porngs, and there is only 6 wires in all on the board
ya i'm using an atari 2600 six switch, i was looking at the controller more today, theres 6 wires that run to it, i beleive 1 for each button, and then the 6th one is to power it, i've figured out which wires go to what button and all that, so i'm planning on connecting those wires to tact switches instead, and just losing the board completely becuz there are no ic's on it so the board seems useless for a custom controller
