    I updated it again, still getting it. Very strange.

    It's an 8 minute time out, or at least 8-10 minute.

    *edit* nvm. People are getting 8 min time out with the converters too.
    Was this a time delayed "time bomb" timeout? After Evo, Sony somehow made the converters and USB board timeout since Evo is done?

    Ok I sent a PM to the brook engineers, if we need a firmware update.

    No timeouts for me. I was playing just a few hours ago.
  • FalkentyneFalkentyne Joined: Posts: 576
    Can you check again? Maybe 'a few hours ago' the update which made it happen didn't start happening yet.
    Everyone with the converters and the boards is getting timeouts now.
    It's even in the ps3.ps4 fightboard thread.

    Please check again, @Clandestine

    Brook is currently on the case!

    And when I had the chance to try out the KOFXIV demo!

    since timeouts are an ongoing problem :p would it be a plausible solution to get Brook boards licensed by Sony so they become 'official' like MadCatz controllers?

    Too expensive?

    What is the PS4 version and adapter/board version that is causing the timeout now?
    Because not everyone is getting the timeout but many people are?

    This started around noon time?

    @Jonyfraze said his UFB is not timing out.
    Anyone else?

    If you ARE having 8min timeout (EVERY TIME, consistently), please post the PS4 file system version after any sort of system updating, please!

    Brook needs this information.

    Would love to know if some board versions are less temperamental with updates than others, since I'm about to pull the trigger on one of these.

    Funny, just came here to check on timeouts too. It was fine during EVO, just updated SFV to latest and it starts disconnecting randomly. When it disconnects it's stuck in the last input I did and I need to reconnect it.

    Weird because I am encountering timeouts on the demo. :(

    Edit: Since I was playing on a public PS4 unit at a boba tea house. I quickly glanced it was ver 3.55. My UFB is latest build and is dropping in SFV and KOF every time.

    I wish I read more info when I was there.

    Second edit: I was playing on a US PS4, plugged through Neutrik USB, also done forced PS4 mode.

    I wanna be slightly joking but the UFB had trouble on the KOF units at EVO. While I can still play, I encountered disconnects, weird "cannot perform this action here" prompts and sudden PS menu screens. To be fair it was all through debug setups so compatibility wont be best obv.

    I will say that I still encountered the problem even without KOF being installed. Maybe they did a stealth hotfix or a timed activation period after EVO but I don't really wanna delve to conspiracy mode.

    Guys..

    For those having the reset issues:
    To help Brook pin point the issue, can you please post your exact setups?

    Which Version PS4 (US, EU, JP, etc)
    Software version #
    Also how you connect your UFB to the console (neutrik / direct usb a to b / or cable soldered on)
    Any other info you deem relevant.

    I personally dont seem to have any issues with any of my UFBs (I have about 5) and the P3-P4 & 360-P4 adapters.
    They were all tested on 2 different versions of US PS4s running 3.55 (older one with the touch power button and a newer one with the physical button).
    Some of my sticks have a neutrik port, some are directly soldered, some have a direct usb A to B. My VLX has a JasensCustoms EZ mod. i tested the adapter with stock ps3 and 360 pads.
    Again all working.

    Maybe KOF broke it..... I haven't downloaded the beta yet.. =)

    Especially the 4 pin USB connection to the UFB (either direct soldered, or presoldered UFB to a JST connector), because if you soldered, you aren't using the shield ground wire.
    So if are getting dropouts, PLEASE state how the USB cable is connected !!!

    I don't know if it's related at all, but on Evo Sunday I was playing casuals at A&C during the viewing party. My stick just froze on me holding back. The weird thing is that the stick I was using didn't have a Brook PCB, nor was I using a converter. I don't know how long it took for the disconnect to happen but I'm sure it took longer than 8 minutes. It was an HFC dual modded with an Xbox 360 PCB. I made sure the DPDT switch was set to HFC mode and the SPDT switch was set to PS4 mode. Perhaps these timeouts aren't unique to Brook devices? It hasn't happened again since that day though. This is definitely odd.

    Dear Brook players,

    We've noticed the disconnection problem, and we are now trying to work things out.
    If there's any clue you think might cause this, please let me know.
    We will come out with solution soon.

    Had a session today, for a couple hours between roughly 4-6pm PST, no problems, hopped back on later and started getting consistent disconnects with the Brooks UFB around 745pm or so.

    Brooks board has the latest update

    Just hopped on to say that I'm experiencing the same thing on my PS4. Updated my board to the latest firmware just to make sure I wasn't out of date.

    Wild , I had no problem till about 1 1/2 hours ago. Played sfv no problem then left for ice cream for 15mins and this happened . What I'm tripping on is this happened to all all of us but at different times . I BELIEVE IN TEAMBROOK !!!!

    I had the disconnect happen to me at Evo. It was fine on one console but disconnected between rounds on a different console. USB is soldered to the board with a Neutrik adapter in the middle; total cable length from console to board is probably 7'. Besides the different console, it happened while I was logged in with the player 2 account.

    How much do you guys want to bet this was a stealth update by Sony to break custom controllers?
    You know big brother is watching. As much as I hate to say this, either one of two things happened here:

    1) The firmware was already triggered to break non-licensed controllers right after Evo, automatically, but not when 3.55 went live. (this is not likely, but you never know....)
    2) Sony uploaded a stealth patch without the user's consent or knowledge, to break non licensed controllers today, and the update went to different systems at different times.

    Tin foil hat theory but maybe not far from truth..

    Before posting here I did check update history and there's nothing logged as a patch or hotfix
    I also turn off the console completely and the disconnecting started to happen right after I turned it on I the evening..I played for a few hours straight I the morning with no issue

    Perhaps the latest Sony update contained a time-released or remotely activated code? It's a strange one..
