So, I have a Madcatz WWE Brawlstic and was happy with it until I realised that the lever is kinda crap, so I bought a new one from a new brazilian brand named 2nd Impact. But the problem is, the lever lever that I bought uses a 6-pin harness (english is not my native language so I dont know if this is the right word) and the lever that comes with the Brawlstick uses a 5-pin one. I’m new to modding, so I don’t even know if I can use it that way, can I? And if I can, how do I install it?
welcome to srk!
i moved your thread into the tech talk section.
You may have to solder, but i don’t know your new Stick pinout Maybe it needs VCC so depending on your Brawlstick model (if it’s PS3 or 360) you could get VCC easy or not.
So first try getting the pinout for the 6 pin connector and we can help from there
Most levers that require a VCC input need power for optical sensors. This stick clearly has switches. In fact I don’t see any part on that pcb that would require an external power source. I also don’t see any traces on the pcb that lead to the 6th pin. You may not need to hook that pin up to anything.
Thanks for the help, guys. I managed to connect it by attaching the loose ends of the wires in the cable that already comes with the stick (completely ignored the last wire).
