That's what I meant when I said they were analog :) I don't think it was a pressure sensor, just a position sensor, but your finger pressure determined how far down the button would be held.

Replacing them with tact switches will make them simply on/off versus the array of different heights the buttons could be pressed. I only suggested this because it would save space and I couldn't think of too many GC games that really utilize the analog functionality of the shoulder buttons (the best example I remember is with ssbm where the shield would drain less/more versus protect less/more depending how far the button was pressed)

Also, I read Ashen's post about mother board trimming. So you dont need the parts of the mother board that you cut off? For the AlmostWTF cut or OMGWTF cut. All of those parts are deemed unnecessary?
