    That's exactly what I just said. Touchpad is select on other consoles...

    Anyway you can keep your insults to yourself. I wasn't asking your opinion anyway, I care very little. I just wanted to let the Brook developer who frequents this thread know that I thought it would make more sense to have the Switch Capture and PS4 Share on the same button, instead of having to remember what button does what on every single console.

    Most people have touchpadbutton wired up to their old turbobutton and select (share) to, you know, select/back. Thats how brook has documented the wiring ever since the UFB got released. Originally the tpb only had a purpose on PS4, and according to Brooks documentation it still does. Ps4 sfv doesnt need select so alot of ps4 only owners wired tpb up to their old select buttons. Brook then added the ability for tpb to act as a secondary select button on platforms that only required start and select (and home). That doesnt take away from the fact that it is still a secondary select button, and thus imo, select (share) should remain select.
    Changing this now would essentially screw over all those people who followed the instal diagrams that brook had on their site for more then a year.

    You're right. There is no good solution to this :)

    I'm just gonna have to see if minus on the Switch turns out to be more needed than TP on the PS4.

    What stick do you have anyway?

    Hi guys. Just built a hitbox with a Brook UFB in it. I updated the pcb and it was successful. However im still getting the 8 minute timeout happening. I've tried redoing it and anything else I can think of. Does anyone else possibly have experience with this ?
    Thanks guys.

    Its been reported in this thread before so if you skim through it you should find the solution. Off the top of my head iirc it was a windows issue. What OS are you running?

    It's a Hori RAP. But it was originally for Xbox so I removed the hideous plastic piece with the headphone tumor-plug in the left corner.

    I designed a custom PCB for my old MC Cthulhu, with space for a Mega Drive 6-button controller IC on the bottom side.
    I also added multiplexers so I can swap the bottom and the top row of buttons by the flick of a switch. This is ideal for playing 3-button Mega Drive games, as it's much more comfortable using the top row. If I play something like Street Fighter 2 I of course leave the buttons in the default position, so it works like normal, using both row of buttons.

    I didn't want to add extra buttons so I added two OR gates so I could simulate extra buttons by pressing two at the same time. That means that I can use Start + Select as Home, and 1P + Select as PS4 Share. This all works fine.

    So actually, yes I technically have a way to press Minus on the Switch by pressing 1P and Select, but this is inconvenient as it also takes a screenshot every single time :P

    When I designed this there was no Switch support on the UFB, but I was pretty confident that if that happened it would use the same button for Share and Capture :) Had I known I would probably have designed my PCB differently. But I don't want to redo it, so I'll probably just have to decide between PS4 Touchpad button and Switch Minus.

    Below is an image of my current installation. I plan to add a separate board that connects to a DC controller PCB (for VMU support), and maybe also Wii Classic Controller support.

    No worries. Its pretty odd to be doing it. Possibly @Brook_Engineer may know why it will update perfectly fine, but still have the timeout happening. Very odd. But minor issue.

    @jopamo Why are you always getting into arguments with people on this forum? It seems you have an incessant need to be right. Chill out dude.

    Just dual modded my first stick and lets just say it was an quite the experience. The guide I was following I noticed had a lot of pictures on photobucket and are now not visible and I thought I would share my extremely amateur picture as I feel like it would help other others. I dual modded a Brooks universal fightboard and an MC Cthulhu using an imp v2. One thing I didn't include was the wiring for F on the ImpV2.
    That can be soldered and used with any button and I would recommend using a button not used for manual selection on a console for the UFB. I used 3 kick since it wasn't dedicated to anything already. The wiring on the MC Cthulhu are the colors for the RJ45 connecting.(Gray=white on the RJ45) W2Rmc99.png

    Hi All Guys.

    Brook Released new firmware of UFB to support two Home/Capture buttons and stick map to LS/RS on SWITCH
    http://www.brookaccessory.com/download/PS4/

    Could you elaborate what you mean by "two Home/Capture buttons"? I still only see the one of each in the button mapping you posted below :)
    ...but kindly know that you cannot make everyone satisfied since everyone has their own habit/opinion/etc.....

    Of course :) I just wanted to let you know that I found this a bit counter intuitive. Thank you for replying :)

    Hopefully it will never be more than a minor issue for me, so I don't have to redesign my stick :)

    I'm jelly. Dreamcast, xinput/dinput, PS2, AND PS4 support on the same stick? Yes please!

    :p Thanks! I read his reply as two buttons that both did Home or Capture.

    Would anyone know where to buy a 4 pin wiring harness to use with this PCB ? I have the Brook UFB, and a 20 Pin harness for the joystick and punch / kick buttons. But I would like to add touchpad, R3 and L3 buttons as well on my custom stick. I have the UFB with the pre soldered headers. I can find the standard 20 pin harness's all over. But just a 4 pin for those buttons seems to be pretty hard to locate.

    Thanks for anyone that can point me in the right direction, it's greatly appreciated.

    Hi everyone.

    Just yesterday I finished my custom fighting stick with a Brook UFB pcb I had lying around for quite a while now. So every time I want start a firmware update the app gets an error in cmd_sync_packno() and the app crashes. Then I tried using the stick on my ps4 and still got the 8 minute time out.

    Has anyone of you guys experienced the same problem? Is there a fix or workaround for it?

    BTW: Using windows 10 on my PC and downloaded the update program several times now without any change in the result...

    Appreciate any helpful input!

    For the UFB, check for a JST PH 4 pin or any connectors with 2.00mm spacing row like Dupont. Carefull you'll find also 2.54mm spacing connectors.

    Like this or that.

    Hello,

    Hello, I'm going to build an arcade stick completely from scratch.
    I would like the "Brook Universal Fighting Board" as a PCB installed.
    In addition, the stick should be equipped with eight LED buttons.
    What do I have to order? (Cables, buttons and PCBs)
  • eniahKeniahK Joined: Posts: 2
    Got it figured out! Everybody who gets the error (k17) 'cmd_sync_packno() = fail' should try another usb port! I got the firmware update working by connecting the UFB to an usb port on the back of my motherboard instead of using the frontal (external) usb ports!

    Just curious to know, what size of screwdriver would I need for the screw terminals on the UFB?

    I forgot if its a size 1 or size 0. Its definitely jeweler sized

    Hi Bros
    Brook fighting board is working well on V4.73 without updating file.
  • ykdykd Joined: Posts: 71
    Well I've tried everything I can think of to update my board. Using Windows 10 it says Success, yet still timing out on PS4. It works just fine other than that. When I plug it into the PC I can force every mode even. Blue light no issues. Update with the small USB A to B cable.
    Does anyone know how to actually check what version of the firmware is on the thing ? If it's on PC in PS3 and PS4 mode it'll say something like controller V 1.6 is that possibly the firmware number ? Sorry for the long post this is just perplexing me

    how long does it disconnect?

    It might be a crazy pipedream - but if there was some kind of expansion board made available for the UFB that would allow Switch wireless connectivity - man, I'd start throwing money at Brook.

    Once the 8 minutes hit it just stops responding until I pull the USB out and put it back in, hit the ps button and sign back in. The blue light stays on it just stops responding to any button inputs

    ykd, when doing an update to my UFB, I didn't use a small USB cable or anything just the regular cable I use to plug my stick into the PS4.
    Hold PS + Share as you connect it to your PC and it should all be good.

    I'm sure you've already done this but I just wanted to make sure.

    Now it won't respond in the computer it loads up but device says "Unknown USB Device Device descriptor request failed". And I haven't done anything to it since last night when I messaged here.

    Yup tried that. Might be a dumb question, but do you keep holding the buttons or let them go once you get the start button initialized?
