Wiring Tact Switches to Xbox 360 Triggers
« on: August 17, 2009, 12:28:39 am »
Hi there, I'm building a custom made Xbox 360 arcade stick and I'm hung up on wiring up the triggers. I've looked around and couldn't find the answer I needed. I just need to see how the tact switches need wired and where (if needed) the resistors are attached. I attached an image to the topic. If you could just draw the connections (and resistors).

Thanks
-Mike

What controller are you using?  (MadCatz, Wireless, Wired Official, etc).

It's the official wireless controller.

Is it the older, non-common ground PCB, or the newer common ground PCB?

I can't look at the physical controller at the moment (as it's 130miles away) but I know it's the same design as this one ( http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FLR/BM3T/FIN3ZDRY/FLRBM3TFIN3ZDRY.MEDIUM.jpg ) .
