Hey guys. i ordered a PS360 and own a PS3 TE slim. I have been watching this thread with great interest and was wondering if anyone can verify that i can have turbo combined with the guide/home like the ps360 PDF states and have it work. I don't mind cutting out the turbo and home buttons and using the 10 button method. just wanted to verify that the layout works as shown in the pdf. also i know the ps360 comes with a 4pin connector but the PS3 TE usb cable comes with what i think are 2 ground wires. how is this handled? is one wire disregarded? finally if anyone can post up pics of how they used the ribbon cable to keep their turbo and home buttons separate for the 12 button method please post them up for those of us in need. thanks for taking the time in advance.

What buttons can I not use anymore if I go with the 10 button layout?
It's just the turbo and select right? I still can use the home button for XMB/Guide?

Since Per/RealNeoGeo asked a while back, here are the stick bases that my last parts order from Akihabarashop.jp ended up in ---
My second Arcana Heart 2 stick is finally finished after many months sitting with no Start and Select Buttons!
Yep, those are Pink PS-14-D push-in buttons! All because Sanwa can't seem to stomach 24mm pink buttons!
My LS-40-01 joystick ended up in this stick base. It's a temporary base since I haven't made up my mind IF I'm going to get a replacement faceplate (from Art Hong) for a T5 base's ruined faceplate! This is NOT the final stick but a temporary working one. It's actually my Universal Joystick with an MC Cthulu. Mickey's faceplate will retain the LS-40-01 when I eventually move him onto his permanent home.
This is the BIG one! For many months, my HRAP 3 SE (which I bought from Akihabarashop last year!) didn't have 30mm buttons. I removed the original buttons plus the Seimitsu ball handle and sold them on SRK. I replaced the original handle with a Sanwa red ball handle. Stick already has modded JLF-CD shaft/cover from a mod last year to protect the LS-32-01 shaft. Shame Seimitsu still doesn't produce its own shaft covers for this joystick!!! Anyhow, I bought eight PS-15's from Aki to fill in those 30mm button holes. Took a day of breaking the buttons in, but they're really almost as comfortable as the Sanwas... The plastic 'feels harder' and I did get some finger muscle strain(!) on the first time playing with the new 30mm's but it's all good now. I think the more convex plunger shape looks better than the PS-14-G's flatter plungers. I'm definitely liking the look of this stick and am glad I stuck to mostly Seimitsu parts. The 24mm Start and Select are actually Sanwa's with plungers switched with another pair of 24mm Sanwas. Great looking stick all-around.
Just because I prefer my 3SE a bit more doesn't mean I don't show a bit of love towards my HRAP 3 SA... It's just that the stock HRAP 3 SA has such a..... generic look. I fixed that by replacing most of the OEM White Sanwa buttons with different colored Sanwas that had black rims to emulate the HRAP 3 SE look. It's more of a cousin, really, since the 24mm's and rightmost 30mm's are different colors than the same button positions on the 3SE. The six black-rimmed reds were bought from Akihabarashop.jp... None of the domestic vendors in the US had these buttons in stock at the time I ordered them.
The remaining buttons are spares from my "button collection".
The joystick is an LS-32-01 I obtained in a JLF swap with another SRK member. I, of course, modded another JLF-CD shaft/dust cover set to protect the -32 shaft.
So that's my pre-Christmas gift to myself!
Thank goodness there are great international parts vendors like Akihabarashop.jp because the situation in most countries with respect to joystick parts isn't that good...

Despite how off-putting it may be to others, the S!AH2 stick really looks nice with that balltop and button combination (it's almost cute). Too bad it has that Hori layout + AH button layout: which equals = odd.
You would think it would be okay to use an Astrocity layout on a game that probably ran on an Astro cab anyway?

Video? Who said anything about a video?
It's been hectic with the holidays, but I should be able to get my tutorial done tonight or tomorrow... I should have instructions for a TE, and the TE-S. PS3 users seem to still be SOL about using the turbo panel without soldering...

Hey guys and gals. Just installed the PS360 PCB in my hollowed-out TvC FightStick using the 10-button method, with the Select Button as the Turbo as well (I covered up the turbo panel using my custom Arcana Heart 3 artwork ^_^) and the PCB works 100% great (I'm loving the LS-32-01 stick and Seimitsu buttons that were sent with them too )...
...my only problem now is that I somehow managed to push the Start button's pin connector thing through the circuit board while I was rewiring the damn thing and it's come right off... =.= I've currently got it where Select is now Start, and I have no Select/Turbo button to speak of... >.< Looks like I need to get meself another TvC FightStick and replace the Start/Select circuit board panel thingy (which isn't so bad, I can get a TvC stick for cheap now, £20 on Play.com, plus it'll be a spare case for backup... XD)...
Anyways, the main point is that the PCB is just awesome, and when I get the appropriate replacement part, I should be able to provide pics of quite possibly the most poverty custom job in existence... XD
Again, thanks for all the stuff, Per... A pleasure doing business with you, mate...
EDIT - Here's a blurry mobile phone photo of the stick in question... XD

Hmm, I wired a PS360 today, but I get no response when I plug it into my 360. However, my computer immediately read both 360 and PS3/PC modes upon inserting the USB. Any ideas what's going on here? I guess I'll upload a pic of the wiring later today.
Edit: I just tested it on my PC as a 360 controller. Everything seems to function properly, but still no go on the 360 itself.
*Update* I swapped the wired PS360 for my second one. And guess what, it works on the 360. Not sure what's up with the first one though.

Hey Per, sorry to bother you but have you shipped all of the orders that don't include the PS360 PCB?
I'm asking because I made my order for buttons and a ball top over a month ago on Nov. 25th, however due to an error with the website, the order made a charge to my Paypal but was not later listed under my order history.
I sent a pm and an e-mail to you about it 2 weeks later on Dec. 10th and you responded with an e-mail assuring me that you would have it shipped a week later, but since then I've yet to receive an e-mail confirming that it has been shipped.

For the PS3 te mod you just wire the two Ground from the USB cable together. I took some photos and will post em up soon. Mind you only for the 10 button method.

Yeah it should have shipped. Could you send a new e-mail? Everything "exploded" with the pcb orders so would be great if you could let me know again, thanks.

I'm thinking that the LS-40-01 has replaced the LS-32-01 as my favorite joystick!
It still kind of feels like the LS-32-01 but is slightly tighter and doesn't "jump" like the LS-32-01 does at times. I also appreciate the fact that I don't have to mod another JLF-CD to provide a shaft cover!
I don't hate the LS-32-01 and will definitely keep those in existing bases. I'm definitely considering makes my next 2-3 purchases of joysticks all LS-40-01's, though! It MIGHT be that close-to-perfect joystick that I've been looking for to handle all my fighting games. It also works well with Earthworm Jim HD, too!

Thanks, sure enough it just arrived on my doorstep today.
One issue though: I ordered 2 blue PS-14-G-N and 2 blue PS-14-D-N but I neglected to mention in my e-mail on Dec. 10th that I actually ordered the ones with the clear plungers, which I didn't notice until now on your website that they were listed with (????) after the name of the button.
Is there any way that I could return the 4 buttons that you sent me in exchange for the 4 buttons that I originally ordered?
Edit: Or better yet, could you send me clear plungers for these buttons? I'd be willing to pay whatever it costs and for shipping.

Modded my VLX with a PS360. With most of my mods, I try to leave the original stick as unchanged or reversible as possible. I ordered a 26-pin idc male header, found a 5-pin male header to make a USB adapter with, and ordered some ribbon cable to use with the header. It isn't the cleanest inside the black box because I left slack in my wiring, but I'm pretty happy with it.
Per, these boards are awesome! Thanks again for making this happen, and my parts are making some of my older setups feel brand new again. My wife is in love with the pink PS-14-D-N-K's, she wants me to replace pretty much every button in every stick with those and their 30mm equivalent.
Next project: get my break-away PS360's wired up for the blast city CP.
Wired up in the VLX
USB Adapter to use existing cable
Closed up and ready to go
VLX Modder's note: with a small jeweler's flathead, you can pop the pins out of the daughtboard connectors and gently insert and tighten them into the terminals of the PS360 for button usage. This allows you to use the existing select/turbo/home buttons of the VLX without having to cut/strip/solder anything, as well as leaving open the option of putting the old PCB back in and re-attaching the connectors
