Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, I was trying to be all 'DIY', and I took my GHII controller apart to paint it. Once disassembled, the whammy-bar controller immediately come un-soldered, and the spring piece fell out. I think I got the soldering done, but spring positioning is like an ancient chinese puzzle to me. Can someone please pop the cover off their x-plorer for the 360 and take some pictures for me of the whammy assembly?
There has been talk of GHII 360 controller's whammy-bar breaking. I'm pretty sure the shotty solder job on the whammy bar could be the culprit. I put almost no pressure on it, and it just snapped free. (Although I realize their intent was not for me to take it apart.
I cannot currently whammy, and the sucks a moderate amount of fun out of the game. Please Help.
TL;DR- Please pop the cover off your x-plorer guitar and take some pictures of the whammy-bar underneath.
EDIT: I figured it out...
If the shiny flat back of the reastat (Whammy controller) is facing you, and the 3 posts are face up, this is your color order.
Brown Red Orange
