Q: I’m confused about the TE-S harness thing.
A: It works like this. The TE Kitty kit, has the large important circuit board, and the ribbon cables to hook it up to original TE based sticks; Rnd1, Rnd2, MvC2, tons of others. If you have a TE-S based stick, you need to purchase the TE-S Kitty harness IN ADDITION to the TE Kitty kit. The TE-S Kitty harness has the ribbon cables needed to connect a TE Kitty board to the original 360 TE-S board.
Q: How do I know if my particular TE will work.
A: List subject to change at any time, but MUST be a 360 model.
Those with work with the TE Kitty, no additional harness required-
-Round 1 ‘Street Fighter 4’ TE
-Round 2 ‘Street Fighter 4’ TE (* see note)
-Comic-con (White with orange stripe) TE
-Femme Fatale TE
-Asian (All white) TE
Those that require the TE Kitty and TE-S harness.
-Round 2 ‘Street Fighter 4’ TE (* see note)
- Chun Li TE
-Super SF4 TE-S stick
- SoulCalibur ‘Soul Edition’ TE
Those that require the TE Kitty and VS harness
-SFxT ‘V.S.’ TE
- Round 2 TE’s are currently coming out with TE-S based boards, when they originally used TE based boards. Please use the lock switch test mentioned above to see whether you need the TE-S harness.
Q: So how do I know if I need to get the TE-S Kitty harness without opening it up?
A: The easiest thing to do is plug the stick into a 360 and start up a game. Slide your switch to the ‘Locked’ setting. If your Start and Back buttons still work, then you do NOT need to get the TE-S Kitty harness, the TE Kitty kit will be all you need. If the ‘Locked’ setting disables the Start and Back buttons, then you DO need to get the TE-S Kitty harness IN ADDITION to the TE Kitty kit.
Q: How do I get it to work properly with SF4 AE for PC?
A: Move slide switch to ‘LS’.
Q: Can I use a TE Kitty without having the Guide/Turbo/LED board? I want to remove that from my stick, or use a TE pcb+Kitty in my custom case.
A: You wouldn’t be able to force Xbox360 mode, you would be perma stuck in DP mode (no MvC2 for you), you would 100% have to drill a hole for a Guide button, prolly bunches of others I cant think of at the moment. Can it work? Mostly. Will it work right? Meh. You’ll lose some functionality without it, and I wont be doing any tweaks to the code to get around them. You will have all functionality if you can install a Guide button and a LS/DP/RS slider, but in short, it’s not recommended nor supported.
Q: Can I put it into a SE stick? What about a BrawlStick? Aren’t those the same guts as a TE?
A: Installation into SE’s is not supported. The electronics are the same as a TE, so the installation is pretty smooth, but there’s no easy way to mount the board itself so it doesn’t rattle around. There are numerous pictures in this thread of it being done, but it involves a massive amount of Dremelling plastic out of the case, and I want nothing to do with that if I can help it; there are no instructions on how to do it, and if it doesn’t work or you mess up, too bad, I wont care. The Brawlstick is much the same way, except the electronics are different as well. There’s aren’t even pictures of this happening because the Brawlstick electronics are funky. Just don’t do it. If you have to ask, you can’t do it, and I will not be helping at all.
Q: What about SFxT Pro sticks?
A: It’s been done before, absolutely does require a TE-S harness, but it currently unsupported. I haven’t found a way that’s clean enough to my liking. So, it’s been done, but I wont be able to help you.
Q: What about the SFxT V.S. sticks?
A: V.S. sticks will require a new harness. This has been order and will be listed for sale along with the installation instructions as soon as these harnesses arrive, around early April most likely.
