Quick question, the MSX FAQ has a picture of the joystick port connections. However, it does not state if it is from the socket the MSX side facing out, or the other way round, PCB connections? I am looking to rewire some NES Konami Hypershot controllers just unsure of the connection diagram? I know RUN goes to the LEFT hand control, and JUMP goes to fire. Just want to make sure! https://www.faq.msxnet.org/connector.html#joystick
The inside of the NES controller appears to be compatible

See the inside from around 1:20

I *think* it should work without any issues? Has anyone else tried this modification?
