Controller Thumbstick Grease?

Recommended Posts

is there some sort of grease (lithium grease?) inside the stick where the mechanism is? one or 2 of my controllers feel... sluggish? like if you move the stick all the way to the left, and then just let go it doesnt feel as quick to center as another controller. i cleaned out the thumbstick with alcohol and q tips but idk if theres some sort of grease that should be there. like the dvd drive laser rails.

whenever i clean controllers out, i add a small amount of synthetic grease to the inside of the joystick modules using a toothpick.  i recommend Super Lube 21010, but any high-quality silicone-based grease should work.

      So yes,
      I know it sounds weird, but I dream with disabling or remove the analogue/sensitive button crap from my Xbox controller! I want to play the Splinter Cell games and their sensitivity is horrible the way it works with the original Xbox controller (you have to press very hard on the face buttons for actions to register).
      It would also help other games and compatibility with other controllers (I've heard the wireless logitech controllers have compatibility issues with original xbox controllers that USE the sensitive functionality).
       
      At least I would want to make it so every push of the button, no matter how slightly, it would push at 255 strength every time. Anybody has any idea of how to begin doing this? This would be done in hardware hopefully.
      All ideas are welcome

      Guys, I need some feedback from some veterans out there.
      I have my first original Xbox, and I modded it, etc. But I also have a few original games that came with my Xbox etc. one of them is the first Splinter Cell.
       
      The problem is simple, for doing anything in the game I have to press "SUPER" hard on the buttons! (for the action to be performed) Now I know what you'll tell me, buy a new Xbox controller. I just got an original mint condition controller from Japan. All other games I've played don't have this problem, on the opposite I hardly touch the button and the action is performed! (in every other game) The controller is in mint condition and it's original Xbox brand!
       
      Is this how the game was coded? I have the platinum hits version of Splinter Cell by the way.
       
      Thank you all guys, you are a great community from what I have seen, my regards
