    Two Sanwa's, or two Seimitsus..... In a twin stick game, one moves the character, the other controls their weapon....

    Two sticks in one controller

    Thats been done many times over
    many games that support a two joysticks don't even use analog.

    Look at Arcade games like Assault or Virtual On, the Right side joystick is wired to the four face buttons.

    OK so will a Brook board be able to handle 2 sticks??? or will the second one need to be wired as buttons instead then map those in the game as directions?

    Map the 2ND stick as the 4 face buttons.

    It really Depends on what you are trying to do and for what game.
    Some of these specialized arcade controllers all have their own nuances that needs to be taken in consideration of.

    Games like Assault, Virtual On, Robotron 2084 and Smash TV can be wired up to a Brook board without any issues, the right side joystick is wired like so
    Up - P2
    Down - K1
    Left - P1
    Right - K2

    For Assault and Virtual On you want to use a non-analog flight arcade sticks with the top button wired for the bumper (R1, L1, RB, LB) and the Triggers wired for the Trigger buttons (R2,L2,LT,RT)

    A Pop n' Music or Dance Dance Revolution Controller will not work with a Brook board only because brook boards has SOCD filtering, that same SOCD filtering basically breaks those games as you can't Hit down and UP or Left and Right at the same time.

    A Project DIVA Controller? I believe needs all the buttons, No SOCD filtering and both Analog sticks. A Brook board far as I know would be a bad fit.

    I just bought a Brook UFB. I want to hook up my R3, L3, and turbo buttons. I tried to do a quick Google search and browsed on YouTube for answers, but it doesn't seem like people bothered hooking these buttons up.

    Do I need a special harness or something to hook these buttons up? If so, then can anyone point me to where I can buy what I need?

    Just need JST connectors if you have the headers, otherwise you can always solder. Check these out from Focus Attack: Link

    Hello I have a quick question regarding the Brook universal fighting board:

    I want to modify my MvC3 Fightstick so that it is able to play on XB1 & PS4 because of the new Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, but I wanted to make sure this board would work for my fightstick.

    I want to keep everything as stock as possible (without cutting all wires & such) so I would like to know if Jasen's EZ mod board is also compatible with Mad Cats TE Fightsticks?

    Here is a link to the boards below. Please let me know if you have any info/expertise on this subject.

    Thank You

    Danny

    The EZ MOD Kits are designed for the following sticks:

    VLX (PS4 versions)
    MCZ TE2
    MCZ TE2+
    MCZ TES+ (coming soon)

    @Jasen Hicks What's the status on the EZ MOD kit for the TES+?

    Just need JST connectors if you have the headers, otherwise you can always solder. Check these out from Focus Attack: Link

    So JST is what the white connectors on the Brook board are called?? Mine have all the headers soldered onto the board and want to utilize these vs hard soldering so it looks cleaner. That kit is for the PS360+ but the JST's are all universal I presume?

    Correct. You should be good and I agree its much cleaner using these instead of soldering.

    Be carefull about the JSTs: There're different sizes. Brook's board is using JST PH (2mm spacing row) for J2, J4, J5 and J8, but the J7 and J6-1 are JST XH (2.54mm spacing row).
    I don't know about the PS360+, so check the spacing between the pins.

    Good to know. Do you still plan on releasing or providing any MadCatz SE Padhacks that connect to the Brook UFB? Interested in a couple :)

    I have some premade cables for those JST connectors. Assuming you picked it up from AracdeShock or Paradise I know that they are all PH style since that's what I recommended and what I use on the EZ MODs.

    If it's a 360 TE and you don't plan on using Turbo, you can wire the Turbo button to act as a Touchpad button.

    I gutted my TE last night and was wondering how I could go about wiring up the Touchpad button and I was thinking about doing this very thing. Thanks!

    This probably goes without saying but make sure the turbo panel board has power and ground in addition to the signal going from turbo button to touchpad key on the UFB. Stick a wire from the ground on the turbo board to any of the multitudes of grounds on the UFB, then just connect USBVCC on the turbo pcb to any VCC point on the UFB. After that just connect the Turbo signal on the turbo panel to touchpad key on the UFB and you'll be good to go. The nice thing about TE turbo boards is that everything is nicely labeled; you'll have a hard time getting the wrong points.

    I have the TE stick 360 version round 1 and I dont use the Turbo button. So I will use the Turbo button act like as a Touchpad button.

    is this correct? :)

    Can someone tell me what the D3/D4/D5/D6 on the turbo board he has connected to the P1/P2/P3/P4 on the UFB board are for?

    Also my turbo board has a "KGND" at the top of the XGUILD row. Do I need to run that to a ground somewhere? I already have the other ground hooked up and get continuity with all my ground points on the brook board.

    Those are the players LEDs.
    KGround is the additional ground for the Start/Select Button.

    If you can stand my horrible accent I explain what those are in a video here (@2:13):

    Dude..do people in Canada talk smack about your accent? I don't get the repeated self-deprecation.
    Most people in North America who speak English (sadly) only speak that one language. Don't apologize for our collective ignorance

    So I need to connect the Kground to get the Xlogo and turbo button to work at all?

    Are the player led's the ones around the Xlogo that light up corresponding to what player you are? I'm assuming I can just skip that

    1) No. The Kground is to be use as the ground for select and start button (back and start for X360). If you want those button being controlled by the lock switch, of course.

    2) Yes. This is a fency feature, and with the Brook board it can helps for debug (like lighting leds in a certain way to indicate it's on firmware update mode)

    Can someone tell me what the D3/D4/D5/D6 on the turbo board he has connected to the P1/P2/P3/P4 on the UFB board are for?

    Also my turbo board has a "KGND" at the top of the XGUILD row. Do I need to run that to a ground somewhere? I already have the other ground hooked up and get continuity with all my ground points on the brook board.

    Those are the players LEDs.
    KGround is the additional ground for the Start/Select Button.

    If you can stand my horrible accent I explain what those are in a video here (@2:13):


    Cheers.

    So I need to connect the Kground to get the Xlogo and turbo button to work at all?

    Are the player led's the ones around the Xlogo that light up corresponding to what player you are? I'm assuming I can just skip that
    1) No. The Kground is to be use as the ground for select and start button (back and start for X360). If you want those button being controlled by the lock switch, of course.

    2) Yes. This is a fency feature, and with the Brook board it can helps for debug (like lighting leds in a certain way to indicate it's on firmware update mode)

    OK so select and start will still work, but the lock feature for them on the turbo panel won't?

    Anyone updated to the latest PS4 4.50 system update? Do we need a new firmware for the UFB?

    Brook products including UFB do not function for more than 8 minutes on PS4 farm Jpn 4.50 β.
    The same possibility exists with formal farm 4.50.
    Still I believe that Brook will deal with it.

    I just bought a Brook UFB. I want to hook up my R3, L3, and turbo buttons. I tried to do a quick Google search and browsed on YouTube for answers, but it doesn't seem like people bothered hooking these buttons up.

    Do I need a special harness or something to hook these buttons up? If so, then can anyone point me to where I can buy what I need?

    Just need JST connectors if you have the headers, otherwise you can always solder. Check these out from Focus Attack: Link

    Nice! I think this is what I'm looking for since the board already has headers on them. So I'm guessing I have to buy the quick disconnects and crimp those harnesses myself? I think Focus Attack doesn't sell the QD connectors by themselves since I can't find them there. Thanks for the help so far!

    It looks like you provided everything I need. The board already has the headers installed onto it, but I'll check the other parts out. Thank you!

    Just bought a Universal Fighting Board and wired it up -- looks awesome on PC! My PS4 isn't detecting it at all, however, is this a firmware issue? I updated to the latest just now but no dice here...

    what about manual mode? press 2P and connect the board to PC and PS4

    With 2P held down before connecting, PC detects it as "P4 Wired Gamepad V1.6" and all the inputs seem to function fine. PS4 still doesn't respond to any inputs from it.

    edit: PS4 system version 4.07, if that matters.

    or try other ports on PS4?
    it seems to be the problem of the console...

    since it can be detected by PC, and all the inputs seem to function fine, the problem is not on the board

    If it's a 360 TE and you don't plan on using Turbo, you can wire the Turbo button to act as a Touchpad button.

    I gutted my TE last night and was wondering how I could go about wiring up the Touchpad button and I was thinking about doing this very thing. Thanks!

    This probably goes without saying but make sure the turbo panel board has power and ground in addition to the signal going from turbo button to touchpad key on the UFB. Stick a wire from the ground on the turbo board to any of the multitudes of grounds on the UFB, then just connect USBVCC on the turbo pcb to any VCC point on the UFB. After that just connect the Turbo signal on the turbo panel to touchpad key on the UFB and you'll be good to go. The nice thing about TE turbo boards is that everything is nicely labeled; you'll have a hard time getting the wrong points.

    I have the TE stick 360 version round 1 and I dont use the Turbo button. So I will use the Turbo button act like as a Touchpad button.

    is this correct? :)

    Also, I asked in the BUTTHOLE thread to create a thread about my Madcatz PCB here: http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/comment/11183022/#Comment_11183022

    d3v said he was ok if there's enought interest from the community.
    So please go like the post in the BUTTHOLE thread if you are.

    Sorry for hijacking the thread.

    You're completely right and it just turned out that I didn't realize that you needed to be signed into a profile to use a controller on the PS4. Is there a plan to have a macro for the PS button? My stick currently doesn't have a PS button and I'd need to drill a hole into my stick to install a new one. Thanks again, it's a great product :)

    hey guys just got my brooks board
    trying to connect to windows 7 and its not working wired up my ground and my ps and select button and I cannot update any firmware

    I have an xbox one driver installed i am not to sure if thats causing it.

    I am also using my old sanwa atrox buttons too! But I don't know how to test if they are not working anymore

    any tips or help?

    I had an issue with my old motherboard that it would by default get recognized as an unidentified device. I was able to boot specific modes by holding down buttons though. If you hold the 3P(xbox360) or 4P(xboxone) when you plug the stick in is it recognized? What does the device manager list it as?

    it comes up as controller and then says xbox one

    I might try differnt PCS my computer is 6 years old so I don't know if that would have anything to do with it

    Also I have not got other buttons wired up yet all I have been trying to connect is the ps share button and select to update firmware

    I have also tried my joystick too and nothing has been picking up

    also realised my wires were not stripped so I stripped them down and my buttons still don't get Recognize either

    @datjackjack
    1. Open file and don't plug in USB
    2. Press and hold PS and SHARE (or SELECT) buttons then plug in USB
    3. Click START to update

    That's normal behaviour - on a PC the Brook board will be automatically identified as an Xbone controller unless you hold down a different punch button to manually change between modes.

    Do you have pictures of your installation? It sounds like you've done something wrong.
  • datjackjackdatjackjack Joined: Posts: 9
    I'll have to take some photos when I'm home. Does the led change when I change modes? I'll wire up my punch buttons this afternoon and try changing the mode so it won't come up as an xbox controller.

    Tried that gogo the issue is my buttons are not being recognised so hopefully changing the mode will help.

    Which punch buttons change Modes?

    lManual selection:
    Support manual selection of PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 mode and Wii U, suggest be set to Xbox 360 mode on PC.

    Manual Mode:
    step 1 : Press button:
    1P for PS3
    2P for PS4
    3P for Xbox 360
    4P for Xbox One
    1K for Wii U - Pokken Tournament
    2K for Original Xbox

    step 2 : While Pressing connect fightstick to PC


    Got that from the Brook website. Try it when you get home.

    Silly question what do I look out for while changing modes? Will the usb just recognise it?

    The same thing you looked for originally.

    In the game controller applet in Windows it will display what mode you're currently in. So it will change from Xbone to whatever you're trying to manually force.
