Will someone help me identify the correct way to short or add resistors to disable the analog sticks?
I'm padhacking a DS3 controller as the internals for an arcade stick. Thanks to RDC's excellent coverage I've been able to identify the board as MSU_V3.5X 1.14.
The RetroArch emulator frontend uses L3 and R3 for menu access during gameplay. I can use COM3, TP26 and TP27 respectively with a couple momentary push buttons to make this happen.
So, two options.
Option 1 (easy), duplicate L3 and R3 with instructions similar to http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php?s=&...t&p=4859214
Option 2 (clean), desolder the analog sticks. Smaller circuit board == more space in box
I think I'll need to solder a resistor for each POT yet I'm unsure which points exactly. For each POT I see continuity between GND and VCC and each POLE. Admittedly I have searched for this information yet have had little luck. I'm very handy with a soldering iron and multimeter yet still learning general electronics debugging.

Thanks for any help or references!
