First wave of third party Xbox One padhack options

At the time of Writing, the PDP MKX pads are not out yet, all the pads you see so far are review copies for people who work in gaming journalism.
So we can’t answer your hacking questions until someone actually hacks this pad, that is assuming this pad feasible for hacking.

Thanks for this. I will be trying on the Hori soon. Do I need to do anything with VCC line if not using dual system stick? I don’t fully understand what the VCC is used for and when/where it is used.

VCC is an electronics designation (or notation) that refers to voltage from a power supply connected to the “collector” terminal of a bipolar transistor.
VDD, VSS and VEE are also notations used, it gets into how Transistors work, as typically VCC goes into the collector Pin of NPN Transistor, it also refers to the Power Pin of a IC (integrated circuit, also known as a microchip or just chip).

Typically VCC referring to positive voltage (unless you are referring to a PNP Transistor then it’s Negative).

Any ways for our purposes, VCC is another name for the supply power wire, in most stick PCB’s its our +5 volts.
The VCC is where the power comes from.

Typically the Red wire in a USB cable is the +5 volt line, it supplies the controller with electricity, it often called VCC.

You would tap into the VCC point on a board if you need to power something else, like a IMP board or a LED controller (like the Kaimana RGB LED Board).
You also need to connect the two VCC together in a Dual mod (so both boards have power).

If you are not doing a Dual-Mod, you don’t need to do anything with the VCC other than make sure its connected to its source of power.

Makes perfect sense. Used in the event you need to power anything additional. ie. Powered stick, IMP etc. Thanks.

Slightly off topic, whats peoples opinion of the Xbox one default dpad? I just got a XB1 3 weeks ago and tried Killer Instinct and I couldn’t get any QCF moves to work, like the diagonal wasn’t detecting at all. This coming from a man who did all the SF4 trials on the 360 pad without problem. I do recall modding my pad a lil, shaving the well/pit area around, but that just made it smoother, it was already decent.
I’m wondering if I just have a bad controller.

As for the inverter, does Radioshack carry that? I’ve done some 360 modchips so inverter looks easy enough in the event I go for one of the cheaper choices.

Lastly, I’ve only ever done pad hacks for a single console. What do I need to read up on if I were to add an xb1 into my 360 Mad catz TE?

It is still a Xbox pad.

It is still a Xbox pad.

You are a masochist

There is still Radioshack locations left? The one near me been closed for a month now, I think the company is going to bankruptcy.
You are better off getting the parts you need online as you don’t pay a arm and a leg for them.

Ha, not only did I do the trials on a pad, but I believe it did them again on Super SF and also SF4 on PC.
I’m in NYC and theres still a bunch of radio shacks all over.
What site can you recommend that has that? Maybe get the SMD resistors if price is right, and maybe an 0805 LED to change that white guide button to blue again.

If you know how to navigate the sites Digikey or Mouser

Do these pads (specifically Horipad) all require the 100ohm resistors from the LT/RT signals the same way the OEM Xbox PCB does?

The first post says that the hori one does not require trigger inversion.

From what I can tell only the MS pad needs 100ohm resistors. The hori needs nothing and the rockcandy, mini and spectra need inversion.
The PDP MK X pad comes out today, supposed to have built in 360/XB1 toggling.

It appears that you have to manually switch between 360 and One. Surely it wouldn’t be too hard to rig a button combination or another switch to take care of that…

I can’t help but feel like I jumped the gun on those PowerA Minis, but I guess I can use those as actual controllers when I finally make the plunge and get a One.

Newegg has/had the official wireless for $41. I jumped on that. Got tired of checking ebay for 20-35$ broken/as is controllers to take a chance.
At least with this I can desolder the analogs and other items and keep as spares.

Please delete.

That’s how last-gen/current-gen compatibility works for both XBone and PS4.

Not necessarily true; the FC4 has a switch, but it will actually automatically detect which console it’s plugged in to and switch accordingly. I would imagine the PS3/PS4 sticks from Hori would behave the same way.

The FC4 does not auto detect. The switch is there for a reason. You might have it in PS4 mode and noticed that it works on PS3 that way. This is because PS4 controllers work on PS3, but try using the home button. It won’t work Because it is in PS4 mode and it doesn’t auto detect. Or keep it in PS3 mode and plug it into a PS4, you won’t get anything there.

That would make sense, seeing as I’ve only hacked one into an HRAP 2 which doesn’t have a home button. I stand corrected.

here’s hoping the PDP MK X pad isn’t like the vs pad before it and can be used in dual mods.

I got a PDP fight pad… here is the pcb… dont know if ts common ground or not
