Wondering if someone could answer a few quick questions for me…
A little background, I’ve got a HRAP V3 SA PS3 stick, an Imp V2, and an Xbox 360 brawlpad (Madcatz common ground). I’ve done plenty of 360 TE + ChImp mods, but not yet starting from a PS3 stick.
I understand how the Imp works, and how the button signals between PCBs should be connected, but should I also connect a ground and vcc between the PCBs or does the Imp handle that connection? For instance, with a 360/PS2 dual mod both controllers are technically getting power, their power and grounds are connected together (as per the image in the first post) but they output to two separate cables. Since this is a single-output connection, I just want to make sure that I don’t fry anything or create power issues.
The brawl pad also supports DP/LS/RS and turbo, is there any way I can connect these points like the button signals so the switches work whether I’m using PS3 or 360? It’s not entirely necessary as I probably won’t ever use these options, but just for the sake of completion/perfection.
With the button signals connected between PCBs, should I assume a ground wire would be shared between them as well? As with the Guide/Home button to the Imp, Home connected to Guide -> Imp is the correct way to do it?
I think that’s all I really need clarified, I’d like to get started on this mod tomorrow. If anyone could lend some expertise, it would be greatly appreciated.
