Hey Toodles, I’ve got a very peculiar problem regarding the SSG setup in my HRAP3 when I added a brawl pad. I followed the instructions to a T (save for me switching all four USB solder points for PS3 and 360 on the imp, because of an early mistake I decided to just run with), and with everything but the guide button from the pad connected, I tested the stick out on both 360 and ps3 and all the buttons and stick directions worked perfectly. Now, the reason I didn’t immediately connect the guide button is because I fucked up bad and basically stripped the entire contact point for it. Then I got some advice here to dig down to the via associated with the button and solder it to that, and that actually worked perfectly.
But once I tried to test the S+S functionality, I found 2 things:
1: the guide was brought up by only pressing start and
2: when pressing start, whatever was onscreen would react to my pressing start before pulling up the guide, which to me didn’t seem all that surprising, BUT when I pressed either start or B to back out of the guide, the onscreen game/whatever would behave as though I pressed B as soon as the guide disappeared, backing out of whatever menu I was in or what have you.
The part about the doubling of the “B” input is the strangest thing to me (or in the case of the start button to exit the guide, a random “B” input coming out of nowhere) since there’s really no way for those 2 inputs to get crossed, as far as I could tell. I have exhaustively checked for any crossed wires and did a bit of removing different factors to try to weed it out, since this is my first real work with any sort of circuit boards those are pretty much the only diagnostic skills I have immediately on hand, and I found that the guide exit “B” input doubling would happen even if I accessed the guide overlay from my dashboard somewhere without ever using start to get into it (friends section or marketplace etc.).
Have you heard of this sort of problem before?
Would the fact that I left the home functionality on the PS3 on the dedicated button, and went with SSG for the 360 be the issue?
Thanks for your help, man
