Hey guys, sorry to ask but I am in need of advice. A friend asked me to help him mod his Madcatz TE round 2 fightstick for PS4 use via a Hori Fight Commander 4. I had recently dual modded one with the PS360+ I had so I didn’t think it would be a problem. We were able to get it to work briefly but after what seemed like a successful run through, we unplugged the stick, screwed the cover shut and found that it no longer worked when connected to the PS4. Tried doing some tests on a PS3 as well to verify if it was an issue with the home button but it seems like there is no power going to the HFC4. (or I fear I might have burnt out the PCB somehow)
I’m not sure if this helps but my wiring is thus:
- Buttons are connected to a strip inside the fightstick. We didn’t have a wire stripper small enough to strip the ribbon containing all the button signals so I ended up soldering wires to the bottom and connected to their respective locations on the HCF4
- Stripped the USB cable and soldered the wires to the back side of the HCF4 PCB.
- left the joystick wires connected to the original fighstick PCB (the one with the Turbo/home button) and soldered the opposite end to the HCF4 PCB
- Soldered the Home Button node on the bottom of the original PCB to the HCF4 PCB
So yeah not sure what has caused the stick to not work anymore. Is there anything that sounds too crazy from my set up? or is there any clarifications that might help? I’m really stumped. I thought that maybe the issue was that I needed the VCC and GND connected to the original PCB as well as the HCF4 PCB but that didn’t seem to make a difference either.
