    Do the analog stocks and shoulder buttons have a common ground? If so is it shared with the buttons?

    Alas http://hitmen.c02.at/files/yagcd/yagcd/frames.html http://www.int03.co.uk/crema/hardware/gamecube/gc-control.htm and http://www.allpinouts.org/index.php/Nintendo_Gamecube_controller_connector_pinout did not tell me.

    I am not sure about this controller but it seems my green and white had a resistance in the meg Ohms (around 3 of them)

    c ground was green
    green was the order of the day for the triggers (I did test internally for these though)
    z button case ground was green
    the few buttons I tested went to green
    left stick and c appeared to share a common ground (it was awkward so I only managed to confirm low resistance between what looked to be the stick and the c grounds
    rumble seemed to go to white (I did not bother to look hard enough for a feedback diode) but having logic and power using different grounds works well.

    Black and green were common.
