    Does anyone know if the PS2 to PS3/4/PC Adapter will support a PS1 Namco Arcade stick? Recently got one to restore, just need to know if there is any issues with having it work with the adapter, or if I should just throw in an actual Brook PS3/4 PCB.
    Thanks guys!

    My stock ps1 namco arcade stick works great with ps2 to ps3/ps4 adapter.

    @Brook_Engineer

    here's how it looks on PC:
    - if I connect a wired PS3 gamepad, the lights will turn red on pressing buttons/moving directions: https://i.imgur.com/zuH4bnG.png

    - with the PS360+ stick connected: https://i.imgur.com/d35bMSS.png - if i press buttons/direction, nothing turns red

    one more thing I noticed, the Brook device is recognized as PS4 Wired Gamepad V2.1 in Device Manager, but the controllers attached are listed as PS3 Wired Gamepad V1.9
    could this difference version be an issue?

    that should not be an issue.
    so it can't work with the PS360+ after its update? so it used to work before the update?
    didn't have the chance to use it with other firmware, i bought the Brook converter and updated to latest firmware (v2.2) straight away.

    there was some user earlier in the thread that had a similar problem because support PS360+ was missing by accident from latest firmware version.. can you please check if PS360+ is support in current firmware (v2.2)?

    I have checked controller compatibility in the update app when updating. Ive also tried the controller with converter out in my pc, which registers it as a ps4 wired controller and all inputs are working.

    @Aquashark
    I updated latest version into white converter (PS3 to PS4) from Brook website and tested with PS360+ on PC. They are working well in game control panel.
    Please click controller updated icon on app to try again

    Hi everyone! I'm new to these forums as I've just recently got a razer atrox for xbox one really cheap, 78€ brand new from Spain. I want to also use it on my pc without rewiring anything and this converter seems to be the easiest way. I've seen the pink xbox one to ps4 converter for 35€ here. Can someone please confirm that it works fine and I won't need anything else to play sf5 on pc?

    Cool, thanks. I'll keep updated on how things go. I won't be using it till the new year but when I saw the price I couldn't resist, it usually sells at around 200€ here. Am I right in assuming the atrox for xbox one at 78€ was a sweet deal or are things way overpriced in Europe?

    My white ps3--->ps4 brooks converter has started not working. I plug in my stick and it works for about ten seconds and then the ps4 says controller disconnected. The blue light on the converter remains on but I have to replug the converter in for inputs to work again, which works for ten seconds or so until it disconnects again. I'm running the latest firmware on my converter, and I've checked my stick with a friends converter and it works so it's definitely my converter

    Does anybody from Brook have any insight on how long the delay on delivery of the Kickstarter will be? You've delivered to several backers then said production has been delayed on the rest with very little details and no updates for a week.

    Thanks

    Hi.
    I'm using yellow brook ps3/ps4 converter with a controller to play Tekken 7. After recent Tekken 7 update, "Geese" update I noticed input lag on my Brook that wasn't there before. Only in T7 mind you.

    Am I imagining things? Could someone kind check if that T7 update added lag to controller through Brook? Thank you.

    @GOGO.Zippy Does the PS4+ audio board revision 2 not work with the PS3/4 to PS2 converter? I've been trying to get it to connect all afternoon and it's not working. My brook UFB that I used to have in this controller worked with it fine. I updated the firmware on the PS2 converter and everything. What gives?

    Does your current PS4+audio board work in a computer? Have you tried forcing PS3/4 mode with Square/1P or Triangle/2P? if it's a second revision it should use a proper USB A-B Cable so there should be data flowing as those cables are not used for charging smartphones and stuff.

    @Torta Yes it works fine on PC and the consoles it's meant for. Yes I did press those buttons when plugging it in and it still didn't work. Do you have experience with this setup? Did it work for you?

    The most recent update of the PS3/PS4 to Switch firmware says "Support wireless control for PS3/PS4 controller. Free of registration. Plug the controller to the converter with a cable for recognization first, and then the controller can be played wirelessly." When I plug the DS4 in to the converter it works fine and then I unplug it and it does not work wirelessly. Is there a step I'm missing to get this to work?

    @Torta @GOGO.Zippy I finally got it to work. I had to connect it to my PC in Xinput mode and plug in the controller while holding down the 1P key to put it in PS3 mode. Ever since I did that it worked on PC through the device and now it's working on PS2 as well when I hold the 1P key when plugging it in. I tried 1P before but it wasn't working until I did it on PC for some odd reason. Hope this info helps someone else out!

    Please use the latest file on Brook Website.
    After updated file, Turned on Pro controller wired mode in system page
    To connect converter with you PS3/4 controller via USB cable then plugged into USB on Switch.
    Remove USB cable from converter and press down PS button on controller to link with converter in wireless mode.

    Hoping someone can help here, I'm having problems with my stick on Windows at the moment. If I click gamepad controller, it shows button 13 as constantly on:

    Wx9HK7y.jpg


    This is causing issues in fightcade, as it won't let me map any button until the button has stopped being pressed. However, no button on my stick corresponds to button 13. I'm unable to actually open up my stick at one of the screws is stripped, so I was wondering if anyone knew a way to disable a button through Windows 10?

    I just plugged in my second stick and it has the same problem, so I guess it is a problem with my Brooks converter.

    The white PS3 to PS4 converter

    @Chocobuny
    We tested white converter (PS3 to PS4) on WinXP/Win8/Win10. The button 13 doesn't press down automatically.
    Please check again w/o connecting your stick.

    Was the B13 press down ?

    If yes, please updated the latest file including compatibly controller icon on APP.

    Yes, even without the stick the button is pressed down. I am currently running the latest update (v.2.2) from your website and it still has this issue.

    Sounds like your converter is jacked dude. You probably just need to buy a new one. www.arcadeshock.com

    Yo, so does using the Brooks for my Q4 offer less input lag than using legacy input mode on PS4? Just wondering, I've been out of the loop on here for a while.

    Brooks has very low input lag. They are very good. You should cop one.

    I believe the idea is to set the converter to XID mode if power is lacking, in which case you need to provide power via microUSB... Never used XID mode like that, but that's what I understood.

    @shingouki2
    Yes, Like @ShinMagus words, please try to set XID mode and provide DC 5.0V via MicroUSB port.

    I reapplied the update. It works!

    So just a quick question on the PS2 <> PS3/4, or Xbox converters...

    Do the adapters allow opposing directions to be pressed simultaneously? Like Up+Down, or Left+Right? I'm on the hunt for an adapter that might do well with DDR pads, which require many combinations of directions be pressed at the same time.

    PS2 to PS3/4 converters work OK w/my Project DIVA gamez & Miku Hori controllers- they have combos of buttons you have to press at the same time.

    I just received the Brook X Adapter for Ps4/Switch and I wouldn't recommend anyone getting it.
    After using the latest update(because it wasn't working with Switch). I attempted to do Menu + X, which seems to have bricked the adapter. The light just stays on and it can no longer change modes. The reset button also doesn't do anything. Seems to be a waste of $54 dollars. I use their UFB, but their X Adapter wasn't tested.

    Please set in SWITCH mode to connect with your switch.
    Refer to the document file for set mode on X One Adapter.

    Yes I know Switch mode is Menu + B, but that wasn't working so I attempted another mode (Menu + X/Xbox mode). But after I switched to that mode my adapter has become "stuck" in Xbox mode or bricked. For example the charging indicator no longer turns on, and trying to change to any other mode no longer works.

    @GOGO.Zippy I just got my X One Adapters from the kickstarter and I'm loving them, but why isn't there an option to swap the View and Brook buttons when playing on PS4.

    I've been using the old wired Xbox One to PS4 adapter for a while now, and it was really convenient to have the touchpad mapped to the Xbox One controller's "View" button since it basically acts as that in most games anyway. Having to reach out of the way to hit the Brook button at the top of the controller is awkward in most situations, plus I don't tend to use the PS4's share feature so moving that button out of the way makes sense for me.

    It would also then be consistent with how the Switch mode works, so that "View = PS4 Touch = Switch -", and "Brook = PS4 Share = Switch Capture"
