    Saturn controller repairs

    So I got a small army of saturn controllers over the summer, and a few didn't work.

    I've got some JP saturn controllers where it looks like the shoulder button switch has gone bad, does anyone know a replacement part?

    Second, and the more interesting of the problems; I've got a Saturn Twin Stick controller that seems to be working, but Virtual On isn't recognizing it as a twin stick controller, meaning it's basically useless.
    Any ideas on that one?

    I found this thread: http://nfggames.com/forum2/index.php?topic=5220.0

    You should probably be able to source a similar part on dimensions alone, I think it was an X'EYE where I ordered a few similar switches and found one that fit perfect for power or something. As mentioned in that post, may not have the same feel as the OG switch.

    thanks man.

    but just so I'm sure I'm reading it right, it's a 6x6 mm square switch with the actuator sticking out 5.85mm, right?

    so this would work, right?

    what does the 260 gf mean?
    is that the amount of force it takes to activate the switch?

    EDIT:
    after looking closely at the twin stick controller, it had some bad connections, after repairing those, it works great!

    finally got around to this (and parts finally showed up)

    the listed switches are most definitely not the right part, not a long enough actuator.
    also, the original switches have a much wider actuator, any ideas?
