How can I decipher the pinout for my analog joystick connection?
I opened my controller and observed the connections it had. I made a simplified diagram where I show you the information I could gather.
I want to determine which of the 8 pins of the port I need to connect to each of my new joysticks terminals.
I can probably find J+ and J- by using a multimeter. I would find the pin that gives me a possitive voltage to be J+ and I suspect J- will be the 3 pins that are interconnected.
What I dont know is how to determine which of the remaining pins will be LJx (Left Joystick x) and LJy (Left joystick y)
I also dont want to just do it by trial and error because im afraid that I might cause a short circuit.
I appreciate any suggestions! Thanks!
