I wouldn't do this mod because I can't stand those controllers.
Other than that, good work.
The only two things I don't agree with are taping the ground to the shielding and cutting the controller port out.
Cheap, unprofessional shortcuts, if you ask me. Then again, it works, right? The correct way to do it would have been to get a relay and install it so that the wired controller ports turn on when you plug a controller in, or even a switch.
this mod was aimed more at a personal level I am planning for all my ports to be wireless as I dont use live or need a dvd dongle I don't need to worry about the ports being used for something else. Thanks for the input, I just used what knowledge and materials I had. I couldnt find a tutorial anywhere else but im sure its been done before and maybe to a more professional standard, Where would you suggest tapping the ground to, I would have soldered the grounding cables but am planning on moving them in the near future.
EDIT: and of course on a stardard xbox with the controller ports cut out the whole front could be smoothed and have no ports visible

can you take the wireless reciever from inside a mad catz controller and put it in a controller s? i don't like cheap controllers but i really want to go wireless, even though xbox360 i just around the corner.
I believe you could take the transmitter from inside the controller and solder it onto an s controller by removing the cables yes but I havent tried that and am not sure if I will or not.
Thanks for all the great feedback/support/ideas.This post has been edited by crystalgeek: Sep 29 2005, 09:13 AM
