Brook PS4+ Audio Fighting Board Thread

#202

Hello,

I just got my Brook PS4+, it works wonderfully.

I still have to connect the USB/Audio breackout board because I’m a bit concerned on how to drill the hole in my Qanba Q4RAF.

I don’t know how I will make the board fit the hole and also fix it with screws since it has very little space between the top hole and the USB B connector. Is there anyone to give me tips on how you did it ? with the micro usb version it seemed to be way easier to install but with a lot less solid connector.

You just need to get small screws that fit and their accompanying nuts.

mrhappydude, where can i get LS and RS analog sticks that fit into a 24mm button hole without screws like the ones you have? Thanks

#205

It will be extremely difficult to fit one into a 24mm shell, even with the 30mm I had to cut the button for it to fit. You may want to look at a psp thumbstick and attach it to the control panel with glue or something.

I had to make revisions to my initial design but version 2 worked very well.

#206

mrhappydude. Thank you. I will try to improvise with these. Did you successfully get the regular joystick (DPAD) and these 2 analog sticks (LS and RS) to work simultaneously as on a PS4 controller with PS4+ board? I am trying to do this on a custom stick so i can play RPGs and FPSs with my custom stick.

Anyone here have issues with the PS4 connecting to their PS4+? I have a Jasen’s Customs Pro Cable kit hooked up to the USB-B output on the board and its receiving power but not being recognized by the PS4 when I hit the PS button. If I use the USB-B port on the breakout with headphone jack, it does recognize my stick. I had this problem in the past but it was fixed with a firmware update. I updated the firmware again but this time it didn’t solve the problem.

Any help is appreciated!

#208

Yes, actually I made LS my main joystick and made a dpad button and RS button; I also have the touchpad working.

#209

was anyone able to make the Mad Catz VS stick’s default audio socket work? any tips with the wiring ?

#210

I’m having an issue where randomly the ps4 will recognise and ‘un-recognise’ the headphone socket on the board - its causing the sound to cut in an out when it happens.

i’m feeding through a neutrik RJ45 jack, but i have the same issue when i use the USB port directly on the audio/USB mount.

got the latest firmwares etc.

#211

I have a 360 SCV MZ TE, and I was wondering if i can use the PS4 audio+ PCB with it. Since it already has a headphone jack I was want to know if it’s possible to use it since the headphone jack PCB is only connected via a connector. Or would that not be possible since it was designed to only interface with a 360 PCB?

I also want to put a Korean Golden Lever and Samducksa buttons in it, but that’s a different story for another day.

Edit: I found a YouTube tutorial actually for it. That wasn’t so difficult.

I don’t have a ps4 to test at home, but when i rock up to locals and plug my stick in, this board cuts out sound to the stream.

Is there a way to setup the PS4 so that every device gets sound (ie my headphones plugged into the stick, the monitor playing the game, stream setup)?

#213

I’m pretty sure there’s no current method of telling the f**kstation4 to output audio to more than 1 output. I’ve been there in the situation of trying to figure out why there’s no audio in the system but most of the times are sticks with audio output giving this issue :frowning:

You need to tap audio from your HDMI chain or optical audio out and split the audio, or split the audio from a USB device.

I given up using controllers/sticks for Audio.

Yes use an optical audio to 3.5mm converter and then split 3.5mm if you need to. I do this in my cabinet and it works fine, you need to be cautious of ground loops that create hiss but there are ways around it.

Hi all, I just got the Brook PS4+ (non-audio) board and I went looking for the firmware update, but I only saw files for PS4+Audio and the small square PS3/PS4… so which one do I use? I was thinking PS4+Audio, but I’d rather not just assume and fck everything up lol.

(sorry if this has been answered already, but it’s kind of a hard topic to search for)

#217

I finally finished my cabinet and it works awesome, special thanks to brook for making an excellent board that supports analog thumbsticks! (I would tag @GOGO.Zippy but not allowing me.) The thumbstick works great and I can play anything just like using a normal controller. Hopefully the video comes through so you can check out a ps3 hooked up.

@mrhappydude
Happy to see you fighting cabinet with Brook PS4+ Audio fighting board.
Thanks again :partying_face:

#219

No thank you, and if you would make a universal and retro board with thumb sticks I would be most grateful!

#220

Yes I did. LS is my main joystick, dpad is mounted in the front by rs. It works perfectly.
If you get an ultimarc joystick with custom firmware you can do the same.
