my best N64 controller broke the cable and trying to fix it I ended losing the plug
is it possible to use a mini protoboard and some jumpers to substitute the plug? or there is an easier way?

I guess the only way to find out is trying...
but if someone could help telling me a solution it would be useful!

I guess you could try to "hardwire" the controller by soldering the leads directly to the console PCB but in my honest opinion you're better off buying a replacement controller. That way you're certain you won't damage the console as well :)

thanks for the sugestion(the one about buying another controller I won't risk my last working console, I have other controllers they just have problems the analog stick so it's not a real problem I just liked the broken one more! XD) I'll still try using a mini protoboard first(because if it works I'll be even able to use it on my pc if I connect it to an Arduino :D )
