Then, just put the cables in the correct matching placement on the USB end of the controller to match your new NES header. I don't think cable shielding will be a problem.
Yeah, that's what I was planning to do with the USB header. I bought some .75mm metal casings with little clamps on the end to connect the consoles ports.
Soldering the actual controllers plugs to the end of the USB is going to be interesting ... The cables are a bit short... And that's some pretty sketchy looking cable! Yet to solder it...
The plug will come apart but doubt it would be in a position to put it back together!
