Brook PS4+ Audio Fighting Board Thread


#164

It’ll be difficult to find a 4-conductor TRRS pass though mount jack with ground/earth as the center two rings. Many if not most have them as tip or sleeve. You could do a breakout board like the one below, but mount options are limited…

Why don’t you want to use the provided USB/Audio breakout board??

I need some help here. I set up a game room solutions arcade set with a zero delay encoder and used Happ buttons and microswitches to save money. I got two of these boards for Christmas so I can play games like Injustice and MKX on it.

The problem is these boards are completely different so the wires don’t fit. I got what I thought were the wires for it only to find they were way too small for the microswitches to connect to.

What kind of wiring do I need since I doubt I can fit 30 ground wires in two ground slots.


#166

There are two versions (Japanese or American) of the Zero Delay Encoder board kits. Each version has different sized wired quick-disconnects (.110” for Japanese, .187” for American)to accommodate the appropriate sized contacts on your buttons.

Chances are…you bought the kit for Japanese-style controls…which means it’s time to check that return policy :wink:

P.S. Zero delay encoders have nothing to do with the subject of this particular thread. Please use the appropriate Q&A sticky thread for posts like that in the future. Thanks.

Not the original poster, but in my case I’m looking to use a GX aviation connector for USB and keep audio. I don’t historically trust micro USB.


#168

@veoham The revision 2 of the Brook PS4+ board doesn’t use micro USB. Have you gotten the board already and have the older one? If not the new one should be fine with USB B.


#169

Don’t trust microUSB at all. I finally surrended and bought the board assuming probably I wouldn’t find an alternative but wanted to try anyway. A week later the revision with USB-B announced but Brook won’t sell the breakout board alone.


#170

Buy the newer kit and flip the old one on Trading Outlet (or eBay) to recoup at least some of the value. You’re going to be wasting a bunch of time by swimming upstream with the DIY route. Look…it’s this easy.


#171

Does the latest PS4 update do 8 minute timeout? Do we need to update? I guess I’ll find out!!


#172

For anyone wondering about the 5.05 update, it’s fiiiine…


#173

I’m working on my first stick build (and my first woodworking project). I can’t find any detailed installation instructions for the Brook pcb. Does anyone know where I can find some documentation online? Any common issues or mistakes I should be aware of?

Is it just as easy as wiring up the buttons and stick to the board, mounting the board, then you’re good to go? Is anything other than the buttons, stick, wires, and board needed?


#174

Ah yep - I’ll have to grab that new board as they don’t sell the USB-B neutrik plate separately.


#175

Does anyone here know if the new version of the PS4+ board allows for TP left right and middle like the Brook UFB does? I can’t seem to get it to work on mine. You’re supposed to be able to hit TP click and left down or right but it ain’t happenin. Any ideas?


#176

It doesn’t look like it. According to the “connecting” section of the insert that comes with the board you can install an actual touchpad or a single button for the TP.


#177

I’m not sure if this is an actual issue or not because I can still play without issues, but when I plug my stick into my PC, the z-axis starts at 50% and goes to 0% when pressing R2, then 100% when pressing L2 (may be reverse, don’t remember). Just something I noticed and was wondering if it’s happening to anyone else.


#178

@iTowils Mine does the same thing. It’s normal.

Hi to all,

i have a te2 and I would like to use “LS DP RS” and “LOCK UNLOCK” buttons for R3 L3 buttons… can i do this?
THERE’s a pinout for pcb control panel of TE2.
Thank you.


#180

I think pin 1 is for LS-DP-RS
pin 2 for lock unlock
Pin 3 for Home
Pin 4 for Ground


#181

te2 control panel have 14 pin … i think the first (from left) is Home (PS) and the last is the ground … i’m not shure about that


#182

Lock/Unlock isn’t a button.
its supposed to be a On/Off switch

The ground for Start and Select is routed though that switch

Thats why on a TE you have Ground and KGnd (Start/ Select)


#183

How do I turn off the SOCD or whatever makes some of my inputs weird like I’m doing sonic booms without letting go of back direction and just hitting forward punch?
