Brook Converters Thread

Thanks Zippy!

Hi guys,
I have a mad Catz tournament edition soul edition fightstick for the X360 that I use on my PC. I wanted to get the brooks super converter from x360 to ps4. I wanted to know if my fightstick is compatible as we don’t get them here in Australia and I have to ship it from Amazon US.

Someone on this thread asked the same question but a brook engineer sent them a private message so I don’t know if that fightstick will work or not.

@Komaklub
Yes…they are the same.


#3108

Is there ever any plans for PS4/PS3 converter to Dreamcast or Sega Saturn? Or is this too niche?


#3109

@GhoostWhaat
Soon

So Mayflash has a converter out. On one hand, it works with more devices, on the other hand, it’s Mayflash. Does anyone know anything about this? In particular, input lag?


#3111

With the new Dragonball FighterZ patch that came out this week, my converter(the ps3&4 to ps3&4 yellow one)has not been working properly. It fails after. Few mins.

So I went to the brooks website to download the update. However they do not have any available for macs which I only have. So how am I supposed to update without a PC?

Will there be a Mac update coming soon?

Is there a way to use the PC version on Mac?

Does GameStop update brooks converters for a price?


#3112

Best bet is to either wait for Brook or contact them to get it. Gamestop doesn’t do anything with them to my knowledge. Maybe you can go to a buddy’s house and use the pc to update?


#3113

Thanks front the help.
I contacted them and I’m waiting to hear back. Hopefully soon.
I know a guy with a PC, and he may be able to help but it’s unlikely. Perhaps the library.


#3114

Yeah the update is super small. You only need the converter and not the controller too to do the update. Well that at least that was the case with my X360/XBONE to PS4 adapter.


#3115

I went to the Library this morning. It did not work because of their settings. So i’ts all good, i’ll just have to wait.


#3116

Rent-a-center? Rent a computer for like $10 for the week lol


#3117

It’s always something. The Mac update came out yesterday and I downloaded and ran it, but it still doesn’t work.
Every time I do it says: Timout (wait LDROM)
then it says update finished successfully but it still doesn’t work.

The converter won’t even light up when I plug it into the computer usp port.


#3118

You should contact costumer support. That doesn’t sound good at all.

So FINALLY Brook is bringing out a PS3/4 to Dreamcast converter! I’m so stoked I ordered two of them! I can’t wait! I messaged them and asked them about it and never got a response. Lo and behold here it is! Great job Brook! I can’t wait to review mine!! I just ordered KOF 99 on Dreamcast to celebrate!!


#3120

Cool. Just be aware that if you have your Dreamcast connected via VGA you’ll have problems with video output with KoF99. Some games don’t play nice with vga, and can’t be tricked into the proper mode.

Edit: I sent a message this morning about the possibility of making and releasing a similar converter for Sega Saturn. Here’s the response I just got. There’s hope!:
”Thanks for writing.
Brook keeps searching for every opportunity to make new and good product.
Your idea is great, we will evaluate the possibility for that.

I play my Dreamcast on my HDTV with a RCA to HDMI converter I bought off Amazon.com. I’m looking on Craiglist every once in a while for a legit CRT TV I can buy for it. They are hard to come by at a decent price these days. Hopefully one day I’ll catch one!


#3122

You guys take a look at the Akura by behar bros? https://www.beharbros.com/akura


#3123

Given that the lag on the PS2 converter appears to be completely invisible, I’m actually starting to wonder if there’s a point to going ahead with this MC Cthulhu dual mod - the only console I’d really need to use the Cthulhu for is my Wii.

Wouldn’t it make sense for Brook to make their own universal retro board? Cthulhus are hard to obtain cheaply now, they could make a breakout board to replace ethernet neutriks and intergrate some kind of auto-detection feature? I’d buy that.


#3124

It definitely would, but it seems they are going the way of the adapter route mostly, especially with the new Ps3/Ps4 to Dreamcast adapter.
