Does anyone have instructions on how to put together a N64 controller that was taken apart? I was going to replace a messed up control stick on one of my controllers, but I accidentally took apart all the pieces of the control stick area, and pretty much the entire controller as well. Help?

How do you tell if your controller's joystick is tight or not?

Thanks to the people who actually helped out instead of trolling and adding a meaningless post to the topic.

I've got another question: When the control stick gets really worn out is in unable to be pushed all the way in a certain direction? One of my controller's sticks is really wobbly, and I've found that when using it I am unable to make a character run in a game like SM64.

So what? Just because you guys know the answer to a question doesn't mean everyone in the world does. The answer's actually not obvious, if I asked everyone in my family that question I doubt anyone would know the answer. Where as if I were to ask if the sun were out, a preschooler would even know the answer. The answer was not as obvious as you guys think. And besides, there was no need for the rude comments. It just makes you guys look like ********.

I've got a lot of official brand N64 controllers, and I've got some questions regarding lubricating the analog sticks.

1. When would a control stick get to the point where lubrication wouldn't help?

2. About how long would a control stick last from brand new to completely worn out? As in, how many hours of gameplay would the control stick last for. (if the stick was never lubricated)

3. Like how much longer will the control stick last when it gets lubricated?

A lot of my friends hate the N64 controller due to having three prongs instead of two. They're used to holding controllers with two prongs, so they find it weird.

If I ever have to play a control stick rotating mini-game, I'll use my controller with a really worn out stick. And I'll have something to protect the palm of my hand as well.

That blister I got was huge. I don't remember how big it was, but it hurt like hell. And for about a month I couldn't do anything like clap my hands or grip a bar without lots of pain. It really sucked.

Nintendo used to give away a free glove to people who had purchased Mario Party. I'm not sure what made it more special than any old glove though...

Maybe it was thick, so you'd have less of a chance of getting a blister?

That's kind of lame.

You should just be happy that they even still sell accessories for a 10+ year-old system.

Kids these days... <_<

Not when I can use ebay. ;)

Well, not all A button mashing. Then there would be too many similar minigames. But just not rotating control sticks, I really don't want another blister.

Personally, the Gamecube controller was one of my favorites. I love the button layout, and the controller fits my hands well. Plus, there was the Wavebird, a good wireless controller!

Could I use Vaseline to lubricate the analog stick?

Am I the only one who actually liked the N64 controller? Everyone seems to hate it...
