    I'm making myself an arcade stick for street fighter 4 by using an old 360 pad and after looking at the diagrams on the net I have noticed that mine are different.
    Here is the pic of what I have

    And here is the link to the site with the diagrams.

    So if someone could show me where signal and common is on the pad or atleast tell me how to find it for myself.

    Thanks.

    If you have a multimeter, put one prong on the contact for the black wire coming from the battery pack, and poke around the rest of the board testing for a connection, if you find two points that are connected, you've found your ground points. (Take the batteries out first though).

    U can see on the pic that tracks between pads X and A, Y and B are connected, and that's most likely your common ground. Just double check by following the tracks between pads and check connectivity with a multimeter.
