    You can also replace the crud Mad Catz PCB with a aftermarket PCB like the Cthulhu, PS360+, Cerberus or some other PS3 compatible PCB

    Has anyone tried anything like that? Modern motherboards don't have PCI slots so I was wondering if a PCI-e USB3 card might work.

    the funny thing about this is is, that you are sadly mistaken my friend.
    I have a madcatz mvc2 te for 360 and it won't work on my computer.

    I recently had to get a new motherboard and processor for my computer and had to reinstall windows etc.
    The motherboard is a msi z87-gd65 which is compatible with nvidia chipsets. However I am using an AMD graphics card and the onboard graphics are turned off in bios, meaning that the nvidia chipset shouldn't be active on my board.


    Whenever I plug in the stick the computer recognizes it as a madcatz te stick. It shows up under unknown/other devices and has an exclamation point by it.

    I try to manually find the drivers it doesn't work
    I have installed the drivers from microsofts website multiple times and uninstalled the stick multiple times and restarted my system multiple times.
    Whenever I plug ina regular xbox controller it will find the drivers online by itself and install them perfectly.
    I have even tried different usb slots and to no avail nothing has worked.

    the only problem that I see with my situation is that under compatible ids it doesn't have
    usb\ms_comp_xusb10
    (I went and plugged it into my other computer to try and see any differences) and it works perfectly fine on there. Also another thing is that my computer won't recognize it as a xbox controller.

    I even got a pci-e card. I am not sure if it should be able to pick up the stick though frys.com/product/6112839?site=sr:SEARCH:MAIN_RSLT_PG

    Idk what else to do this never used to happen before the stick used to work fine before I got the new motherboard. Any
    help and tips would be appreciated, thank you for your time.

    I am very pleased to report that installing the Rosewill USB PCI card (model RC-103) did indeed resolve my issues. As others have reported, Windows 7 64-bit immediately recognized the card and I did not need to install any drivers. I plugged in my FightStick and Windows recognized all input.

    Huzzah!

    So for those of you who can't get Windows to recognize your PS3 FightStick or controller input, here's the solution!

    I can also confirm that the RC-103 works with getting a PS3 Madcatz SE stick working on the PC. I bought one earlier this week and I installed it last night. Did a quick button test on the Windows controller settings. Everything registered correctly.

    Now I just need a FG to play...

    Whoever looking for PCIe USB that works with the stick, I have finally found one!!

    startech.com/Cards-Adapters/USB-2/Card/4-Port-PCI-Express-Low-Profile-High-Speed-USB-Card~PEXUSB4DP

    Running on VIA VT6212 chipset that support UHCI controller.

    Tested working like a charm with my MadCatz SE on Windows 7 64 bit...

    Has anyone found an XBOX 360 fightstick that works with the Z87X-UD5H motherboard?

    Ive tried my generation 2 PS3 TE stick and tried a 360 Real Arcade Pro VX SA and neither worked. The PS3 TE would install and my PC couldnt even install the Hori Rap.

    Also, are they new XBOX One sticks Madcatz backwards compatible with XBOX 360?

    The RAP is definitely a drive issue. My TE stick may be too old for the newer PC USBs, but has anyone tried a newer stick with this board or one similar?

    From what I have read the newer MadCatz sticks work with PCs better than the earlier generation, but after seeing the RAP fail I am a bit worried.

    Hori Inc makes no guarantees or promises about Windows Compatibility with any of their sticks.
    Hori only concern with Xbox 360 sticks working on the xbox 360 and PS3 sticks working with the PS3.
    Hori offers no Support for PC use as the product was never intended for the PC.

    But that is all OFF TOPIC for this thread.

    Its cut and dry, Mad Catz TE Round 1 and Round 2 for the PS3 has issues which is described on Page 1.
    The TE-S (from the Chun Li TE-S onwards) do not have this issue.

    I've fixed this issue by using a MC Cthulhu, for only $35 it's better then trying to find hardware for your pc to get it working.

    Yes the basic Cthulhu works for PS3 and PC
    The MC Cthulhu works also on SNES, NES, Saturn, Dreamcast, Turbografx 16, GameCube, PS1/PS2 and Original Xbox.

    For Xbox 360 support, you have to do a Dual mod with a compatible common ground Xbox 360 PCB (like a Mad Catz Fight Pad).

    What Darksakul stated, I searched countless sites and no one really had a solid solution. The Cthulhu board was the best option IMO. I've searched usb boards and it was also a hit or miss, since I already own a PS3, I didn't mind putting it in my arcade stick. Then I figured why not just get the MC version, in case if I ever wanted to play PS2 or any older systems. Best $35 mod I've invested in, without having to worry about compatibility/driver issues.

    So I have a PS3 stick and it works on my PC running Win8. It dose not work in USB 2.0 or 3.0 ports, It dose not work with Win7 and what I have to do is use a USB 2.0 extention cord in a USB 3.0 port and some how it just works.

    Just wanted to share since I bet a lot of people have a USB extention cord just laying around :)

    I've got a ASRock H61M-VS which uses Intel based stuff and an ATI card and I'm still having issues. Anyone got any suggestions? I tried a lot of stuff. Motion joy, Playing with Bio settings, every usb port, only it plugged in.

    The easy work around is use a different USB extension PCI card
    The better solution is replace the Stick's PCB

    I'm trying to avoid both really... I don't have enough slots for a PCI really and the stick's PCB is a pain to change really. I had a "modded" stick that I just unsolder everything from because in theory it should have worked, but something was loose and wires were everywhere. I had an Imp and MC Cthulu and a third party x360 controller pad PCB in there.

    Edit: Him did some research... really wish I had the Akishop PS360+ now. Does it really not need a 360 pcb for dual modding? If I had that and a better RJ45 connector I'd be set, of course the cost is more then I want to spend right now. I'm just to terrible at wiring. I can solder, but everything is all over the place it needs to be cleaner.

    Wow ! all these years and finally a solution for those that are not inclined or don`t have room for another pci card in there rig !
    Thanks so much !!
    To confirm windows see my original release SF TE PS3 stick as
    Pc Wired stick 8838 , it never recognises any input plugged into usb 2 or 3
    Doing as GenKaan said I plugged an old USB extension cable I had lying around from a USB 3.0 slot to my stick and it works ! so happy thanks !!!

    I didn't have to do nothing special to get it working - it just recognises input when its plugged into a USB 3 port via an old USB extension cord

    The better solution is replace the Stick's PCB

    ...And for all TE PCB issues, your best/safest option for PCB replacement would still be a Cthulu-class PCB.
    Vanilla Cthulu PCB is fine if all you're going to do is play with emulators on a PC/Mac.

    (Don't think because the PCB is "PC" compatible means that it doesn't work with a Mac. I've used these Cthulu joysticks on Macs all the time and they work just fine. The small size of the PCB means very minimal footprint in the interior of your joystick which is something to keep in mind if you choose to buy a smaller case retro-joystick like the Capcom Power Stick or Agetec Dreamcast joystick.)

    IF you're going back and forth between PC emu play and consoles, the MC Cthulu is probably the better buy for you keeping in mind that it will work with up to 14 different machines (consoles AND PC/Mac). The only problem is that you have to get the RJ-45 jack pass-through to make the MC Cthulu worthwhile. That means also building up a small collection of RJ-45 cables (USB-enabled, PSX/PS2, Dreamcast, Saturn, SNES, NES, Gamecube, etc.). That can cost a bit more.
    Can't sing the praises of this PCB enough... it's ultra-reliable and even though it's been a while since the Dreamcast support was added, it's a very good multi-console PCB if you choose to go with the $35 MC Cthulu model PCB.

    I'm assuming this was also aimed at me. I already have most of the things you listed:

    MC Cthulu
    RJ45 jack pass-through (which my dumb partner in modding at the time order the punch in type instead of the RJ45 female.)
    PS2/Gamecube RJ45 cables

    I also have an Imp and a after market x360 pcb, but to be honest I don't own a x360 and don't see a single reason I would ever need to play on one so I could easily skip that all together. The main issue I probably have is.

    1. Clean way to get from the MC Cthulu to the RJ45 connector. I could spend $10 on a new pass-through that doesn't have the punch on the back so I can just use the RJ45 plug, but I still need to solder the wires to the MC Cthulu on the other side, which was fixed in the Akishop PS360+ by having a RJ45 female port right on the PCB.

    2. Clean way to get the button onto the MC Cthulu. Call me nuts, but I'm not to fond of the idea of cutting the ribbion cables that go to the button PCB in my stick, which means my only alternative is to solder more wires from the PCB to the MC Cthulu (MORE WIRES NOO! :\ )

    If I am correct the Imp is not necessary unless I wanted a 360 mod in there. Also does the MC Cthulu board have a space for the home button? I don't remember; not a deal breaker though.

    Edit: Is there a reason non of the these PCBs make a connector port for the buttons and joystick right on the PCB? I mean the Phreakmods Cerberus PCB is made to fit right onto the x360s pcb why not just make one that has these connectors regardless of whether they fit right onto the other PCB?

    1. You only need the RJ45 connector if you are doing a Multi-system set up, if you are just doing PS3/PC stick to USB.

    2. You Soldering a total of 11 wires, 8 top panel buttons + start, select and ground it isn't that bad.
    The Cthulhu and MC Cthulhu has Home button support. So you more than likely have to solder for that as well.

    3. Imp only used in Dual-mods (2 PCBs)

    4. Phreakmod's Cerberus PCB and Toodle's Kitty TE are designed to be used as a easy to do Dual mod with a Xbox 360 TE, The PS3 PCB in the TE is completely different. The Cthulhu uses screw terminals for except the Dual-mod soldering points and the system cable/ Ethernet cable area.

    Your mileage on PC will vary with any joystick that ISN'T using a Cthulu PCB.

    Here's what I found out about most Hori joysticks since the PS3 era.

    They generally DO work with PC's. Some of them function pretty darn well with MAME and most other older console emulators.

    The main issue comes with the D L R switch on the PS3 Hori joysticks. You have to be careful on where it's set otherwise the computer detects the joystick as "POV" (analog) when it's really a digital control lever. This issue doesn't pop up with the Cthulu since it doesn't support the analog joystick function.

    It's really a minor pain-in-the-butt but it's one to be aware of.

    I have an HRAP that has an LS-58 installed. The LS-58 was giving me all sorts of hassles the other day when I attempted to use that joystick to play an old school shooter. The problem I discovered later on was the whole "D L R" functionality of the Hori PCB. Sometimes you have to switch from "D" to "L" (or "R"; I forget which but this situation can occur with some Hori's) to get the joystick to function properly. I don't know why but on certain joysticks the "D" function gets interpreted as "POV"/analog joystick and that can mess up your gameplay nicely!

    Anyway, what happened during gameplay with the LS-58 was that it would cut in-and-out when I moved the joystick down. It just occurred to me the problem was the "D L R" switch and not the joystick itself. Had I just moved the switch to "L" before connecting to the computer (or afterwards; shouldn't make a difference with USB) the game would have played fine.

    I noticed the same issue with the HRAP V3 SA. In that case, I'm pretty sure I DID reset the emulator (MAME) to interpret the joystick as "POV" function. I don't think I had to do that at all. It would have worked fine just resetting the DLR switch!

    FYI, the individual Turbo levers on the HRAP V3 are more convenient than the Turbo toggle button on the other HRAP's. The Turbo toggle button is technically easy thing to use, yes, but it's harder to turn off the Turbo toggle and it takes more time to set up initially, too. Both versions of the HRAP Turbo do work well with emulators. Confirmed it for myself.

    One other thing to mention --
    If you can avoid it and own USB joysticks, DON'T use unmodified PS2 joysticks on PC's! The buttons get detected differently on the PS2 PCB and you have to reset your emulators so that the buttons you want to use actually work. Same thing happens with the PS3 when you attach a PS2 to the system through a USB adapter. It's a pain having to reset button assignments every time you want to play a round of a fighting game.

    These are just examples of why I generally don't use branded-PCB's with PC/Mac. You're better off with the Cthulu if you don't to be rechecking settings all the time. On the other hand, the Turbo function on the Hori PCB does come in handy for some shooters...

    The problem is I don't want it to end up like this again.

    All the wires

    How do I keep them organized? Also how do I not cut my ribbon wires and still connect it to the MC Cthulu, does anyone sell the replacements for those?

    Hi I am running Win 7 64bit on a alienware m18x, and i have first version of the PS3 TE sick.

    after i have installed MotioninJoy and plug in to my USB 3 i can see Wired stick 8838 on my device.

    but when i use properties or try to re calibration none of the buttons will react or the stick, nothing will light up :( and motionjoy keeps on saying they are waiting for me to plug in a control :(

    is this what every body is referring to when u guys are saying can't work the stick? or you guys can't even see the stick been detected?

    anyone have a solution to my issue? (i can see the stick Wired stick 8838, but nothing will react to it)

    Thanks

    I just bought the madcatz sf4 se stick literally hours ago, i got the ps3 one because they ran out of the 360 one. My old stick is broken in literally weeks, it's really cheap and crappy.
    I tested the stick there i told them i dont have a ps3 and i am gonna use it for pc, we tested it in their laptop, the stick works so i am happy and bought it.
    Now i am here not knowing that there is many issues with the ps3 version of the stick, i am having the same problem as everyone, it wont notice any input i put in, windows 7 said its working fine it is recognized as pc usb wired stick 8818.
    Then i took out my really really old laptop and guess what it works the stick. So maybe it is because of the pci ports, i have tried all the ports in my pc. I am gonna try buying a usb extension like someone suggested here or a pci port, dual modding or changing the pcb is a little bit to much for me. I hope someone can tell me a definite solution for this problem, because at this point this stick is just a waste of money cause i dont have a ps3, i have a 360 and pc and both of them doesnt work.

    Also does all via chip sets work? i realize my pc dont have any UHCI but my old laptop does
    Thankyou.

    How do I keep them organized? Also how do I not cut my ribbon wires and still connect it to the MC Cthulu, does anyone sell the replacements for those?
    Wire organization in a stick is very similar to wire and cable organization for PCs.

    You can use zip ties, electrical tape, velcro tie strips,
    If you really want to look Professional learn to do cable sleveling.
    http://www.wikihow.com/Sleeve-Computer-Cables

    And with some practice you can do "super wiring".
    I never done super wiring so do not ask me how its done.

    Also the final tip is take your time, envision where your wiring is going, measure twice cut once.

    You might just have to replace the PCB.

    I just bought a usb extension like someone suggested, but it didnt work more money wasted.
    I also bought a pci card but i am afraid it also wont work because it is a nec chip not via, but i hope luck favors me today.
    And also i am not that skilled at modding the stick as in i never done it before, i worry if i change the pcb i might damage the other parts, i also dont know where to get the pcb, if i buy online they wouldnt be able to ship it here.

    Nvm gg the stick won. Usb extension doesnt work, pci usb card doesnt fit as in my pc is full. That means i dont have any more solutions.
    I thought i can finally have a "good" fighting stick to play on but it turns out reality doesnt favor me right now.

    i worry if i change the pcb i might damage the other parts
    What other parts? The Joystick and Push buttons? The most sensitive part is the PCB.
    There nothing else to fry, everything else are just switches.

    You got a laptop, USB PCI cards are mostly made for desktops. The Cthulhu was design with PC compatibility in mind.
    if i buy online they wouldnt be able to ship it here.
    Where in the world are you located?

    I might try if i can get my hands on one which is impossible because both buying retail or online is not possible. But still i dont have any knowledge of modding arcade sticks.

    No i tested the stick with my old laptop and the stick works same with my old pc but both of them are really old and freezes alot, they definitely cant handle sf4
    Where in the world are you located?
    South east asia, it's hard to buy anything online from here

    Thankyou for the help anyways, i became more pessimistic in finding a solution to this..

    Hi
    Thanks for your help I wanted to add that I solved the problem with the PS3 stick using
    startech.com/Cards-Adapters/USB-2/Card/4-Port-PCI-Express-Low-Profile-High-Speed-USB-Card~PEXUSB4DP as recommended. Bought from amazon.co.uk

    This is my rig
    i7-4770
    Sabretooth Z87
    Nvida g force GTX 670

    Thanks for everyones help.

    Also incidentally the stick works with Injustice and is automatically detected although Street fighter requires the buttons to be put in before play.

    Whoever looking for PCIe USB that works with the stick, I have finally found one!!

    startech.com/Cards-Adapters/USB-2/Card/4-Port-PCI-Express-Low-Profile-High-Speed-USB-Card~PEXUSB4DP

    Running on VIA VT6212 chipset that support UHCI controller.

    Tested working like a charm with my MadCatz SE on Windows 7 64 bit...

    I'm having a tough time getting this to work with Windows 7 64-bit. Windows tried to find the drivers automatically and failed, and then when I ran setup.exe off the CD that was included with the product, I got the message "This package does not contain the driver for this OS." I had no better luck using the drivers available on the StarTech website. In Device Manager, it's showing the yellow exclamation point next to the device, and its device status reads "This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)." Any ideas?

    The 2.0 magic trick worked for me too. At least it did, once. Out of the 4 or 5 2.0 extension cords I plugged in a 3.0 front port, I only got it to work with an old D-Link "raindrop" WIFI adapter base. Worked beautifully. Even played a few rounds of Street Fighter X Tekken with it. Then I had the bad idea to try some other, more visually pleasing setups, which all failed. Moved it back to the front port, but it wouldn't work anymore. It still showed up as "Pc Wired stick 8838", but inputs were no longer registered. Tried every switch position before and after plugging it in, messed with the drivers and rolled back to a week-old system restore point. Nothing. I almost wish it never worked in the first place.

    I have a PCI USB controller card with a VIA chipset that worked on my previous motherboard, but it won't fit on my current one (GA-Z87X-D3H) with my SLI setup. Its only PCI slot is covered by the second GPU and even an extension ribbon cable (riser) won't fit underneath without blocking the fan - unless there's some ultra-slim model out there I've never seen. I guess I could move it to the 4x PCIe slot... but eh... I think I'm going to give up trying to make my PC work with the stick and just go with a Cthulhu instead. It does indeed seem like the best long-term solution. Plus, I get a kick-ass stick for my classic consoles.

    To bad the Multiconsole Cthulhu is out of stock at Focus Attack and Godlike Controls. Any idea when (if) there will be a restock? Or another source, maybe?

    Wow ! all these years and finally a solution for those that are not inclined or don`t have room for another pci card in there rig !
    Thanks so much !!
    To confirm windows see my original release SF TE PS3 stick as
    Pc Wired stick 8838 , it never recognises any input plugged into usb 2 or 3
    Doing as GenKaan said I plugged an old USB extension cable I had lying around from a USB 3.0 slot to my stick and it works ! so happy thanks !!!

    I didn't have to do nothing special to get it working - it just recognises input when its plugged into a USB 3 port via an old USB extension cord

    So I have a PS3 stick and it works on my PC running Win8. It dose not work in USB 2.0 or 3.0 ports, It dose not work with Win7 and what I have to do is use a USB 2.0 extention cord in a USB 3.0 port and some how it just works.

    Just wanted to share since I bet a lot of people have a USB extention cord just laying around :)

    Recently updated the PC and now my TE won't register inputs.
    Motherboard - Gigabyte Z97X-Gaming 5
    OS - Win 7 x64

    I've tried using an old usb extension cable on all of the usb 3.0 ports to no avail. The stick shows up as "PC USB Wired Stick 8838" however when trying to calibrate in properties no inputs will register. In my case I have no PCI slots on this motherboard but PCI-E. Has anyone succesfully used a PS3 TE with a PCI-E USB card on 64 bit Windows 7? Is my best option at this point to replace the board with a 360 compatible one?

    Hello everyone, I have the same problems with my SF4 TE round 2 on my computer , I bought a PCI -E card with VIA chipset XHCI , but it does not work despite my various tests , here is the card I bought : http://www.cdiscount.com/informatique/cartes-controleurs-i-o/carte-interne-pcie-chipset-via/f-10783-gen4710747800004.html?idOffre=33690701#mpos=1|mp

    Dude I told you in the other thread that PCI card will not work and explained why.

    2. Plug in your stick before you start up Street Fighter IV for PC
    3. Not all VIA USB cards are UHCI Compliant (see #1).
    4. Don't use a USB 3.0 card. USB 3.0 is not compatible with USB 1.1 Protocols like the Proprietary Intel Standard UHCI - USB 1.1

    Also UHCI has issues with 64 bit operating systems LINK


    You are far better off replacing the PCB inside your PS3 TE than trying to make the UHCI PCB work with your Computer.
    When I refer you to this thread I meant you to read the thread not post in it.

    What I would do is rip out the current PCB in that stick and replace it with Cthuhlu PCB(Or a cheaper option the Zero Delay PC/PS3 PCB on Ebay for around $20)

    Hello guys, I wanted to use my Mad Catz Street Fighter IV TE FightSticks PS3 on my HTPC linux, but the device, as for most of all, is recognized by the system but not by signs of life. How can I fix, I can't add more pci cards, because I do not have space....I think ....I should change the PCB?
    In this case which one to choose?
    There are guides that I can follow?
    thank you all

    Your best bet is replace the PCB with one that would be Linux compatible.

    Could you tell me someone and possibly a guide on how to install them?
    I'm afraid to break everything, I enjoyed a lot with this stick.
    thank you
