I can do minor electronic modifications without difficulty (modchips and such), but I've never attempted anything of that caliber.
It's not all that hard. I'm sure you've seen the tutorial for moving the shoulder button to the old Black and White positions, well, it's like that.....but on a grander scale.
I don't have a great understanding of electronics, so as soon as you get into logic I'm done. But basically, the Analog Joysticks are two axis potentiometers (variable resitors). I just measured the reistance at centered for X (Left and Right) and pushed all the way right and all the way left. I left the Analog sticks in, so when nothing was being touched, the joyatick was centered (If you removed the analog sticks, it would not be centered as resistance for X and Y would both be 0 (Left and Down I believe). So I ran a direct wire from the X stick ground to the left switch on the Happ Joystick and back to one of the pots pins (the one that measured changing resistance when the joystick is moved). Then I did the same with the Right side, but used 5v power to the right switch for the Happ Joystick and back to the measurable pot pin. Did the same for up and down, and added buttons... once tested, i added the other stick.
This is the mod I did for the original Xbox controller (at least what I remeber of it)...the wireless is different, and I actually used resistors and removed the analog sticks (for use in another project). I can't remember everything...a lot of things I did on the fly, and im surprised it worked so well. I had pics and text for a tutorial almost done, but a HD crash has killed my motivation. With SF2 coming though, I will need another stick..... hmmm....
