"Project Tri-Force" need help


#1

Hello possible Rescueforce,
I started my first mod, combining and Ps3 Hori Tekken 6 wireless with a Ps3 Dualshock pad hack.
Everything went well, it took me 3 days to finish it with the complete wirering. The only problem a few buttons/d-pad doesn’t register/work.

Works:
-Home
-Start
-Select
-Left Analog stick
-Right Analog stick
-X
-Square
-Triangle
-Circle
-R1
-R2

Problems:
-D-pad
-L1
-L2

I tried various methods to change the groundcircle which connects all my problematic buttons. I sticked to the layout of the controller membran and used 8,2k Resistors.
Here are some pictures.

this is pre-wired, I will upload the wired soon

here it is, my cable chaos

So what do YOU think could cause this issue? the Home button works, I connected it with the d-pad+l1+l2 gorund via the resistor, was this my mistake?

here’s a picture to show the membran, I tried to exactly copy the layout

Thanks alot in advance,
Alienbuddha.

The PlayStation 3 DualShock 3 is not Common Ground.
If you want to use it in a Dual Mod, you need a Leo v2 along with.

Why are you putting a Wireless PS3 and PS3 DualShock 3 together?

I replaced the Hori Pcb with the Controler Pcb, since it has a rechargeable battery(USB) and I don’t Need a bluetooth reciever at the console. I got this Dualshock from a Friend, he broke the triggers and I couldn’t get repairparts here in Germany, only 100sets from China :slight_smile: this isn’t a dual Mod, just a Simple “i want 3sticks on my arcadestick” :slight_smile:

There are three Common on the DualShock 3.
You must use the respective Common with their Signals.

Three Sticks in your Arcade Stick?
So Left Analog, Right Analog, D-pad?

the Pictures are back up, the server where I upöoaded them crashed, so you can hopefully see the Sticks.
And yes the d-pad is my regular stick, with the smaller analogs.

I used a flat cable with 20 slots to solder on, which I plugged into the pcb, see last picture.
I builded the signal/common circuts like the membran:

1.Circut
R2
R1
X
Square
Triangle
Circle
Common

+8,2k Resistor

  1. Circut
    Start
    Select
    Common

3.Circut
Home
Common

+8,2k Resistor

4.Circut
L1
L2
Left
Up
Right
Down
Common

I placed the resistors between the circuts cnnecting them, I have I feeling THERE IS MY MISTAKE but I can’t find it. I tried switching and changing the 4. circut and the connection to/with the resistor, but no use. Only the homebutton suffers under it.

maybe this is obvious, maybe its not, you can add a usb charging circuit and a lithium polymer battery to anything that is currently battery operated. its not that hard at all if you know what your doing. I would just use a teensy so it handles the USB request for the full 500ma on all USB host controllers. and a small software program on the teensy that polls the battery for voltage or current (either way will work) and shuts off the battery charger when the battery is full.

you can drill out 2 of the unused pads to mount it properly inside the case. remember this is just for charging so you only need to connect a few wires. I don’t have all the details without looking at some schematics first. it can be done but I don’t have the time to do ALL the research.
