Sorry in advance I am new and hope I’m putting this in the right spot.
I have searched the threads quite a bit and found a lot of useful info on how to do the fgwidget mod, but had a few questions I can’t seem to find the answers to.
I don’t know much about soldering but have a few friends I think can help me out. After studying the threads it doesn’t seem to complex and I even found some great diagrams. However a few things seem vague to my ignorant mind :b I have a fgwidget on the way as well as 8 knserts v1.4 and clear sanwas arrived today. I have a ps3 mvc2 te stick. I’m not gonna try to light the stick just the 8 buttons.
(Just to clarify) I am under the impression ALL knsert v1.4 have vcc and gnd swapped by mistake. I’m hoping to find out if this is true so I can make sure my friend knows when soldering
I see the different vcc on buttons ie jab, fierce, etc are wired to different spots. Are all the grounds wired together and then soldered to the exact same spot? It seems like that is what people meant but I’m not too familiar with the lingo.
can You secure or fasten the fgwidget board somehow after completion, or are people just cramming it. In there and closing the lid? Cause just imagining a board floating around in their seems like trouble waiting to happen to me. Also if so what is the most viable place or way to screw it in or secure it.
Sometimes I see on people’s modded sticks emblems or icons on buttons that light up. I was thinking it might be nice to do x square, triangle, and circle. How are people doing this is there a template? They don’t look drawn on I figured maybe they were printed and put inside the button or maybe decals.
Lastly this one is dumb cause I’m pretty sure I already know the answer but I’m kinda paranoid lol and might as well double check. Mvc2 and 3 use a different system then sfiv. So technically Jab and fierce are the same but then it is different ie heavy being where forward kick is and l1 r1 being partner buttons.
…but that being said I figure logically it should be wired exactly the same. My thought being even though the inputs are called different things the 8 button layout is the same.
(I’m pretty sure I’m right here I just wanted to make sure if I fallow the wiring schematic correctly it won’t remap my default buttons) I figure if I just follow the directions and pretend I’m playing sf controls when the fgwidget is in configuration mode all will be fine
Everything else seems pretty self explanatory
This is my first stick and my first not just simple click-in mod so I want to do it right of course.
I apologize again if I’m rehashing old topics I did search around a lot trying not to have to make a new thread:) I’m looking foreward to joining this awesome community thanks for your time
