    How easily will this fit into a Mad Catz SE shell? YEs, I use one of those (modded with Sanwa parts, obviously) as my stick of choice, as I find it fits in my lap better, and I'd be interested if this was a drop-in-and-go solution.
    I write about games. Current post about the PS3's hacking.

    Please take a look at the tech writeup I did. The short answer is NO. It is a USB device only. Older things like Dreamcast, PS2, NES, SNES, etc. need more than the 2 datelines which USB provides. PS360+ did some electronic wizardry using extra pins on the uP of the board to make legacy support work. The Brook UFB doesn't.

    If you can find a spot, it will work. Its the same size as a PS360+ so if you pull the stock board, and make some room you should be good to go.

    About time something like this got made. Akishop has been woefully in the dark regarding updating the ps360+ to work like this. Maybe this will light a fire under their ass and we'll get some good competition among pcb manufacturers. Lol
    Welcome to the internet. God help you if you have an opinion.

    I should start keeping written letters in sealed envelopes when I go to tournaments. If i get bodied, I give them one, and when they open it up it says "fuk u"

    L3 and R3 support is cool. That was the one advantage my HRAP3 had over my TE w/ Kitty. Now I'll just need a modder.

    Exciting times, people!

    So then this board is just objectively better than the Brook Super Converter?

    I'm new to soldering ... actually I am about to put a pair of MCCs in my Sega Saturn HSS for all my classic consoles.
    May I ask if I can solder a MMC to the 20-pin connector on this Brook Universal Fighting Board, so I run my PS3/PS4/XB360/XBONE through Brook's USB and all oldies through MCC's RJ45, without a switch?
    Thanks ...
  • BolSadguyBolSadguy Toronto Stick Modder Joined: Posts: 1,588
    Not sure about the 20-pin connector part, but as long as both boards have VCC, GND and inputs connected, you can have two separate outgoing cables connected to respective boards, eliminating the need for a switch. You only need a switch if both boards have the same cable outlets and you want everything going out to a single cable. @PresidentCamacho did something similar by connecting a Cthulhu to a Wii U TE and keeping the Wii cable while having another cable be the outlet for the Cthulhu. Just don't plug in both cables simultaneously or you'll fry your boards.

    Probably none. You should be able to remove the existing board and cut/strip the wires connected to it for the Lever and buttons and connect it to this boards screw terminals.

    No problems. Three days and they still haven't fixed it!

    Also, I think a few folks are doing installs when they arrive and plan on taping it. I plan on upgrading at least one NON-PANZER with these boards. I'll film it and create a video so everyone sees just how easy this is.
