I'm starting this topic to share my progress and improvements to the O-Wii,
the goal is to have a V2 that can be made quite easily by other people and I possibly sell a few copies.

It's been a long time that I haven't tried again to make my custom NDS button with GC+ 2.0 PCB work.
After a lot of trying, I gave up, but I was hoping that using 3ds slidder might work ?
So I ordered some, and a week ago I did a live on tiktok where I soldered the 3DS sliders to my PCB.
this is a reconstruction of events :

And to my surprise the slidders worked straight away, I then calibrated them and it worked really well !!!
After that I unsoldered the 3DS slidders and put the switch joysticks back in place ... and they worked really well, before he was totally unusable o.O

So I don't know where the problem came from, maybe a problem with the ADC or variable overflow, or it is a feature :rothink:
Anyway now it work !

My resolutions this year: stop using glue.
On my first version all tact switch are glued, for this second version I want everything to be removable or easily replaceable.
So I introduce you the "no glue" patch :

And the "clips" patch :

Almost all the bindings have been redesigned so that it goes perfectly and that it is easier to assemble.
You will have noticed that I added a support for the 3V battery, and the MX chip is no longer glued, now it is correctly fixed.

I modified all the internal layout, I will show you the differences soon.

A big improvement is the triggers, I have improved it to use as few parts as possible.
Never need for a 3mm metal rod, now a simple screw !
The bending of the plastic are pretty good !
and it is more slim now
