Thanks Tom and Mamejay.
I'll definitely update GitHub after these are tested. At the moment, while I'm pretty confident they'll work, I'm pretty sure I'll need to do a third spin to get some minor sizing issues resolved. Paper printouts cut out can only get me so far :-D

This is very exciting...I accidently threw out the joystick PCB when I moved. Had it out years ago contemplating how to fix it. This is a much better solution than my trace paint idea.

I've hit a bit of a problem today. Ordered the PCBs yesterday and they were rejected by JLCPCB so I will need to think about what to do next.
I could seperate out all the boards but it will dramatically increase the costs as we'll go from ordering 3 PCBs for a full set of controllers to having to order 5 boards and getting less controllers per order. (Down from 5 sets to only 1 set)

Hmm, some boards arrived from JLCPCB, but the solder mask is wrong so I'll need to do a THIRD run. :-(
Maybe I can slide in a new version of the top board at the same time?

Oh man. That sucks. So has the solder mask gone over the whole of the PCB? Wonder if you can use a fibreglass pen and run it off.
Pain in the ass.

@Mobsie, no plans to give up. I plan to send out another order on the weekend.
@Mamejay that was my thought too. I'll have a go at scratching it back. Mind you I hate working with fiberglass pens. So many ouchy fibers.
