Absolute Question and Answer Thread v.3 (ASK YOUR QUESTIONS HERE!)

I’m actually in Canada; I’ve had it happen once during locals in Toronto when things used to be run inside a game shop (this was back in 2016), then 3 more times during club sessions at my university (once during a session in late 2017, another at a session in early 2018, and another at a session around March). For what it’s worth, the sticks in question used:

  • A Hori Fighting Commander board (Xinput version) + MadCatz TE 360 board
  • A Hori Fighting Commander board (Xinput version) + PDP MKX Xbone/360 board
  • A Hori Fighting Stick Mini 4 board + PDP MKX Xbone/360 board

All the lock ups/disconnects happened while playing on PS4.

If it really is the dual mod (whether by how good my modding job was or if 2 boards are drawing too much power at once), I’d have to consider undoing them completely and just sticking with PS4, which sucks since I spent money on those Xbox boards and drilled holes for switches already.

If they’re running a lot of stuff off not enough power sockets, the USB might not be able to pull down enough juice. I doubt this is a dual mod issue - I’ve heard of it happening with wired controllers at tourneys.


#7524

Does anyone know what sticks are compatible with the mount in a Hori RAP EX-SA? It’s got a JLF but there’s another bracket and I’m curious if I can fit a crown stick in or not.


#7525

Hey, can someone give me a pic of the manual for HORI Real Arcade Pro 4 Kai? I got mine from a friend in the USA, but he sent it to me without a box or the instruction booklet.


#7526

I read the PS4 utilizes a periodic authentication over bluetooth. So does every wired PS4 controller have a bluetooth module? If so, why don’t they make them wireless?
Also, how does the bluetooth signal pass thru a metal enclosure(ie. UFB inside a Panzer fightstick)?


#7527

Authentication is the only wireless part, and that not completely true.
authentication also takes place over USB as well

Only controls that Wireless actual works on (without providing a dongle) is Sony made stuff.


#7528

Isn’t the Hori Onyx controller the only exception?


#7529

Honestly I am not sure at this point.
I know at least 1 hori controller don’t use Bluetooth authentication and nether does the ufb


#7530

Do you know if the ufb is an officially licensed ps4 product?


#7531

Oh no no no no. It is not and never will be if it has support for rival consoles.


#7532

I wonder how the ufb bypasses the ps4 authentication if it isn’t an officially licensed product.


#7533

Its not uncommon for pcb manufacturers to figure out how to spoof the controller authentication of a console. Last gen ps360 did, this gen brook does it. The specifics would obviously be considered a trade secret to them, so well probably never know. It would be cool if there was some competition though. Id definitely buy more ufbs if the price was lower.


#7534

It’s called reversed engineering.
You look at existing products and you figure out how to do the same thing with out copying the hardware


#7535

I have it but the text size is small, anything specific you need?


#7536

I’m having trouble trying to find what kind of stick and buttons the Mad Catz TE 1 uses!

Anyone know? TY!


#7537

Sanwa JLF and Sanwa OBS-F


#7538

THIS !

Most Sanwa and Seimitsu parts fit in the old Gen 1 TE with no issues.

What are you trying to accomplish?


#7539

Thanks guys!!!

I may be thinking about replacing the stick to be honest. I’m unsure if I need to replace the whole thing though! 2 issues! It’s super duper loose now, so maybe just the spring?

And second like around the bottom left the switches seem to lag a bit or not register I think?

I have a question about the Hori Mini 4’s PCB. There seems to be only one ground on the pins where the ribbon cable is soldered. Where do i wire the ground for the buttons? Would the ones on the Options,share and home work? I have little knowledge of these things so i apologize if i asked a stupid question.
