I'm planning on connecting a Nintendo Wii Classic controller directly to IC2 input on a RP2 board.
The controller I'd like to use is a Black Wii Classic Controller.
Here's some photos of the Controller cable. I need to figure out which of the smaller cables will need to be connected.
Which of the above cables will need to be utilized? I'm not sure what the thin (copper?) wires surrounding the coloured cables are for, or the central copper wire. My guess is it's a ground connection and the thin wires are for protection. Also not sure about the fabric wire (it's either nylon or polyester).
I'll probably have to open up the controller to see what the Red, White, Yellow, and Green cable control. I don't have the controller in front of me ATM but I don't recall if it has screws on the body so I'll have to try to pry it open carefully.
If anyone can give me a hand in identifying these wires that would be a big help.When I connect the colored cables can I just cut off the thin copper wires? What about the central copper wire and the fabric?
