So I am looking to mod my Qanba Q2 Glow EVO edition stick and I actually have a few questions about modding my stick in order for it to work with the PS4. I already understand that I’d have to purchase a PCB that supports the console natively like the Brook PS3/PS4 PCB, or the Brook Universal Fighting Board. Buuuuut…
My issue with the stick is not just getting it to work on the PS4, but to also get the LED buttons (and maybe stick) to work along with it. I’m not really asking for programmable RGB LED buttons, I just want the buttons (and maybe stick) to light up when I press it.
I was wondering if anyone could help me out on how the whole process can be done while retaining the same buttons and LEDs. Here’s an imgur album that has a couple of photos of the inside of the stick itself if it helps: http://imgur.com/a/xTE5n
Of course the idea is to spend as little money as needed while also making this project as simple as I can for myself. I’m not very experienced with electronics itself. I was thinking about making the original PCB be just for the LED functions of the buttons (basically turning the old PCB into an LED controller). Since the LEDs itself are independent from the button it relies on the PCB to tell it what to do. At least that’s what I think it does. It’s very interesting since the button and LEDs both have a separate connector, but in the end lead to the same connector on the PCB. Here’s a small diagram of the button and LED wiring: http://imgur.com/2FbJCQJ
Based off that, here’s an image of how I would assume the layout would work for one button: http://imgur.com/IH0hMAc. The problem now is how do I power both of the PCBs.
Can anyone tell me if I am on the right path and let me know if there is a flaw with my reasoning?
