    the board is simple actually, all slot ins and no sodering at all. some buttons were on all the time, some were off the dpad was always on. It is NOT set like that, however there is a compatablility issue for what ever reason. The buttons are working fine though in place of the dpad, except it is taking longer. I'll probably need to find better buttons for it at some point. I ripped that dpad out of a motorcycle controller for the ps2. the face button pad as well. I might just try and find another dpad that doesn't create this. The controller is twisting excellent however when I tested it out on tt. Can't wait to get it into working order.

    In short: Precise steering and pitching at the same time.

    mine is done, at least all the wires are connected, and working correctly. I just need to put the negcon back together carefully now. I might wait until tomorrow

    COMPLETED. It works incredible, better than I expected when I tested it earlier. I really cannot believe that it works so well. I took it for a spin on chenchou reverse, and all barrel rolls work fantastic, and it makes the turns very smoothly. Hell, that last sharp turn was easy it seemed, even compared to dpad. It felt like it turned sharper for whatever reason, maybe the analog, who knows. One thing I can give is, it made the game feel slow, maybe this is just for me, I don't know, but I hate using a dpad, because it is so imprecise, always tapping maybe. but with this, wow. I'm celebrating with some breyers cookies and cream ice cream.

    still to come though:

    1) I need to tape these wires together very carefully, then set the base up so it will not be dusturbed by jordan hitting it in the head with a spoon (arnaud)

    2) I need to clean this mess that has been in the living room for a week, ugg

    3) need to get used to the button setup to use this thing correctly

    4) next time I need to use very small gauge wire. At first when I finally had it together, the wires that went from one side of the negcon to the other interfered with the twist, not making it spring back to center. I juried it to work right, but next time I just need to use small wire

    5) There are 21 wires coming out of this thing, HEAVY, but will be better when I tape it up. Once again, small wires would be nice

    6) The digital microswitches I put under the red buttons work fantastically, very quick reaction time. The original blue buttons also work very well.

    7) I need better buttons for the triggers next time, but all the important stuff with the quick tapping can be done on the dpad and the face buttons

    The dpad I put in ended up coming from a handheld one dollar controller I found at big lots. It is very responsive, but would like a little better dpad next time. I would almost consider buttons if the were sensitive enough for quick tapping.

    My first attempt here is ugly I must admit, but not as ugly as it was going to be with the other face buttons and dpad that did not work. I'll try and get a picture up as soon as I can

    dpad for the barrel rolls. I actually got some barrel rolls by turning the twist, and touching dpad opposite twice, but it wasn't working all the time. They work very nicely. That was the part I was little worried about

    I'll stand in the queue waiting for videos

    Great work Al! Too bad I'm better with a welder than a soldering iron - I'm afraid the NegCon wouldn't survive that

    2 thumbs up!
