Hi guys, I was hesitant about starting a new thread but none of the existing ones I found contained answers to my noobish questions so here goes.
I bought a PS3 Round 2 SFIV TE years back thinking it would work with PC and PS3 which turned out to not to be the case. This hasn’t been a problem since I only played on my PS3 but now I wanna move over to SFIV on steam and need my stick to work with my laptop.
It doesn’t work despite my laptop having USB 3.0 ports which some say is compatible with the TE’s PCB. Via USB cards are also not option since I’m stuck with a laptop for the foreseeable future. So after ****ing around with multiple drivers and stuff I’ve decided to replace the TE’s PCB to work with both my laptop and PS3.
So I need advice on is what should I get to mod my stick to be both PC and PS3 compatible. After doing some research I’ve narrowed down my options to:
- Multi-Console Cthulhu
- Zero Delay USB Encoder
As I have close to no knowledge and experience with electronics and do not own a solder, which PCB is the most noob friendly and hopefully doesn’t require soldering? However, if need be I’m willing to find one somewhere and take the plunge. Which PCB would allow me to retain all of my stick’s current functions like the Turbo and Home buttons? Auto-Detection is not necessary but would be a added bonus.
Other than the PCB will I need to get anything other than wire cutters and stuff? Do I have to purchase additional wires or will working with the existing ones do? I’ve read something about purchasing Quick Disconnects, those seem easy enough to work with but from what I read not all PCBs require them. Also how do you secure a PCB in the stick after all the wiring. Some of the videos I saw just closed up the stick without securing the PCB to the casing, is that safe?
Lastly are there any guides out there addressing my particular problem? Most that I’ve found seems to be for the 360 version of the TE, even the TE Kitty that I was hoping would solve my problem seems to only work with the 360 ver.
Sorry if I’m asking too many questions but I’m really new at this! Thanks!
