I modded my PS4 TE2 a long while ago to add an MKX pad into the mix. The switching is being done by a DPDT on the Data+/- lines. Initially it was a SPDT on the Data+ and it worked fine, for the most part. However, when playing 2 player local on PS4 at West Coast Warzone, I started having connection issues. Accordingly, I changed the mod over to DPDT in hopes of resolving the issue.
At WCW, in all 3 matches I had issues while using SPDT to switch the Data+.
Match 1: Complete disconnect. Had to unplug then plug back in.
Match 2: Sticking inputs. The stick would hold directions at times.
Match 3: Wouldn’t accept inputs at a couple of points.
After switching to DPDT I just had an issue here at Combobreaker where it completely stopped taking inputs in my last match. PS4 still registered the stick, the lights were all on, but no inputs going in.
So now I have no clue what it could be. If I had to guess, I’d have to guess a faulty TE2 pcb or cable? The inputs of the MKX are board are wired to the TE2 PCB, as are the VCC and GND from the USB cable. The Data+/- are being switched.
The MKX side works just fine. Single player at home on my PS4 works just fine. PS4 mode on my PC at home works just fine.
I am going to buy a new stick because I really just don’t want to risk it with this one anymore but I definitely still want to fix it. I will probably end up redoing the whole mod. Crossing my Ts, dotting my Is, but I can never trust this thing again!
