Joystick Thoughts

When I first chose my Joysticks I had decided on the Sanwa JLF-TM-8T which has micro switches with Common, Normally Open and Normally closed connectors. Theses seem to be continually out of stock so I settled no the Sanwa JLF-TP-8YT which has no connection to the Normally open available at the micro-switch. It has the common linked through on PBC that the micro-switches sit on, while this cuts out some wiring it does mean that my original plan for mapping the buttons will not work as not all the switches were common to the same control wire! My choices are to interrupt the circuit board and solder wires to the switch contacts or to remap the planned switch contacts.

For now I will go with choosing another layout for mapping the USB encoder. If I decide I do not like it then I will modify the joysticks as required.
