I have been looking around at how to get a fight stick to work on PS4 and the Xbox One. I have searched the forums and there wasn’t any definitive answer to the problem. So I’m hopping there is some new info out now on the topic.
I have found the Chronus Max. The PS360+. And the New Magic PCB.
The CMax seems to be the best option for compatibility reasons. But gives hassles to the second player in offline play. Plus having to use a USB stick isn’t preferable for me. It does have the advantage of giving you macro program-ability. Which is something I have wanted since Skyrim. Being able to assign the function of putting away a shield, equipping a fire spell, using the fire spell, putting it away and then equipping the shield, to a simple button sequence so that it can be used mid fight instead of going through the horrible process needed is a massive help.
The PS360+ I can find the suppliers website for. Seems unnecessary to mention that. But I cant find the guys who make the New Magic PCB. I am assuming its New Korea or something like that. But this may just be because the PCB isn’t available yet. Anyway. The problem with the PS360+ seems to be that it doesn’t work with the Xbox One. I have seen vids of it working. But I am now beginning to think they are fake. Then ofcourse people have been complaining about the 8min reset thing. This isn’t an issue. I don’t know why people even moan about it. The PCB allows you to force a reset. It takes about 2 seconds. And if its done between each match you never have any problems. And everything is back up and running before the next fight even begins. If you forget and it resets mid fight, you loose. Oh well. Its still preferable to having to have two controllers.
My other option is a pad hack. I can get a second hand DS4 and a second hand Xbox 1 controller for about the same price as the PS360+ and do the mod myself. I am fine with a soldering iron. Only stress is the small finicky contact points. Is there anywhere I might be able to get a pre-soldered pad hack set up. That might be another avenue to take. Would need both hacks as I have a 360 MvC stick.
Thanks for any direction with this. As I was typing the pad hack bit I think I might have swayed myself in that direction.
