    Hi All,

    Apologies if this has already been asked and answered.

    So I have a Madcatz TES+ and I'm planning to install a Brook UFB. I'd like to utilize the control panel as much as possible.

    I have worked out how to use the existing wiring harness for P & K buttons and joystick. PS, L3 and R3 easy enough. I also see where I can connect P1,P2,P3 & P4 LEDs.

    However, I might have some trouble with the Touch pad and Light bar. With the touch pad its a ribbon and it looks like I might have to solder directly to the control panel PCB.

    Not sure if I need the 'LS|DP|RS', 'Lock' and 'PS3|PS4' switches as well.

    Thanks,

    Sol

    @Brook_Engineer thanks for the quick reply. I can see the points on the original PCB for the TPKEY, TPINT, TPRST, SCL and SDA. So soldering will need to happen for sure.

    I was wondering if anyone had fully utilized the control board on a TES+ before. It would be nice to have the light-bar working and the mentioned switches if possible.

    I have a TES+ EZ MOD coming out that allows everything to work including the correct colors for the LEDs on the bar based on the player #. In fact, the only reason its not out right now... I'm deployed.

    That's awesome!

    Not sure if I can wait that long :) I'm keen to get started.

    Do you have any technical specs? Circuit diagrams etc?

    I don't share my technical data since its a product I intend to sell via my shop. That being said.... a creative modder can use the TE2+ EZ MOD with the TES+. I did it at EVO last year. While it took a hot minute.... it was perfectly functional when done.

    No probs I understand. Yes, protect your IP!

    Hmm okay I'll have to look into the TE2+ EZ MOD.

    Thanks!!!

    Got my issue with this board resolved - it was either that something wasn't seated right in one of the connections (as I reinstalled) or (and embarrassingly) due to some foam that I had previously installed to dampen the sound that was shorting something somehow... I honestly didn't realise that foam is conductive... >.<

    Good job it doesn't seem damaged though!

    Does the Brook UFB work with the PS3/PS4 to Wii U Brook Super Converter? According to http://www.brookaccessory.com/detail/66392028/ it hasn't been tested ("For those controllers/sticks/wheels which are not listed indicates that they have not been tested yet."), which is weird since it's your own PCB. :P

    I thought there was Wii U support in the UFB now?

    The Brook UFB does support Wii U natively without the use of a super converter.

    For Wii U, UFB supports Pokken Tournament only.
    And of course, you can use UFB with PS3/PS4 to Wii U converter and ​Xbox 360/Xbox One to Wii U converter
