That looks good!
I had some issues with the joysticks when the gnd cables were to long.
You could try to calibrate the joysticks with the GC+ calibrator soft in BBLoader.
You can change the window to get the homebrews in the config file of bbloader.
There is also an issue that a guy had with the connector, the contacts were not on the right side.

Thanks @Emetsys for your help.
I have tested the connexion between the joystick (the left and the right, all resistors) and the connector and all connection and it Work.
But when I connect to the GC+ 2.0 it doesn't work ...

I have nothing so I cannot calibrate the joystick :/
I have tried to inverse all connexion and it doesn't work too :angry:
I have programmed again the GC+ 2.0 but nothing again (only the button work) ...

:oops::facepalm:

:oops::facepalm:
two joysticks should be together connected to GC+ to function them properly

Nice project. When you're ready, I'm interested in the fusion files. I was doing the louii, but seeing yours, made me decide on a 7in screen.

News from the O-Wii after a long time of nothing :D
I decided to completely redo V1.2 and go to V1.3 or rather V2 because the improvements will really be better.

I am currently working on some v1 (and V1.2) Issues which are :
1 - We do not distinguish very well the two states of buttons L and R.
2 - Too much wire.
3 - Internal layout not optimized.
4 - Lots of adjustment at the holes in the CAD.
5 - Too much glued tact.
6 - Of course I have forgotten some things ...

And I think we can upgrade to a V2, here are some improvements that I would like to integrate :
1 - IPS screen (a must have <3) 7" ips are really bigger, so unfortunately I don't want to make a bigger portable.
/ maybe a thin normal screen (I have found a very thin 7" screen)
2 - Custom PCBs with DS lite Pad and Joy con Joystick.
3 - Optimized layout
4 - Better L R feeling
5 - More simple to dismount and repair (less glue).
6 - Maybe possible in Kit !?

So to solve all this here is what I'm working on right now :

I have managed to integrate my new custom PCBs, I have modified my CAD and printed some tests and everything seems to go well, with that I would have a lot (a lot²) less wire, a faster assembly, and of course the true DS lite touch :

The second thing I would like to share with you is the improved feel of the L and R buttons.
Instead of using a single button which at two pressure levels I am using two buttons, a squisshy then a harder one, with this method the touch looks really good, we can distinguish the two states much better !

The next step will be to review the internal layout of each component to optimize all of this (And of course adjustments, test print, adjustment ...).

I think I will go to post the V1 in the Cutting Edges and start another Worklog for the V2 :rothink:

Ooo the project is looking good. And i definetly like the dual input solution for the shoulder buttons.
