Hi guys, I have a rather complicated question that I cant find the answer to after hours of googling and searching around on the srk forums. Really hope the tech experts here can guide me along!
I’d like to buy an old PS3 Hori Vlx but would like to have it work on both the PS4 and PC(xinput). However, I want to make the mod reversible to stock without permanent damage and I would like it to be a solderless option as I am unfortunately not adept with a solder nor do I own a kit.
So far, I am aware of 2 options from Brook that might allow me to do that. The first is the PS4+audio fighting board, ( http://www.brookaccessory.com/detail/09922855/ ) and the second is the EZ mod by Jasen and the Brook UFB ( https://arcadeshock.com/products/brook-universal-fighting-board-hori-vlx-ez-mod-kit-package )
I initially thought the EZ mod would be the answer to my problems, but in the tutorial video by Jasen himself, ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CgArVd1xSTU ) under the comments he says it is not compatible with the old PS3 VLX without rewiring some connector cables or making adapters. I would think rewiring requires cutting and splicing the stock harness or soldering which I am not prepared to do, and I have no idea how to make an adapter.
I would really appreciate it if anyone can chime in with ideas or show me how you modded your own OG Vlx for use with the PS4 and having xinput for the PC.
My last resort would be to get a ps3 to ps4 converter, but I’d really like to avoid that route as it adds input lag to the (apparently) already laggy stock Hori PCB and I want this dream stick to work as well as it can.
(Last side question, am I right in thinking the OG VLX already works with PC out of the box, but uses dinput instead of xinput?)
