How To Swap The Stock Mad Catz Arcade FightStick PCB With A Joytron Paewang Revolution PCB




What do you think about this video?

jumborat12: Did you connect the extra ground wire? I have the same situation

hum92: im modding a mad catz V.S. stick, im stuck on the ribbon cables. you said that there is one with five wires and the other six, but on the v.s. stick it has both six wires for the ribbons. any advice?

Reginold DrLuvin: My modded Brawl stick's cord came loose and started ripping up at the base. I put super glue on the outside and wrapped it in electrical tape. It worked for weeks but suddenly I can't press down! I don't think I'm good enough at modding to swap out the cord, should I just buy a new stick? It sucks if I have to basically toss the stick just because of the cord.

Thaddeus Rainey: Hey man, I really enjoyed this video. I have a question, I own an omni which has this pcb in it and it recently started going off and on. Like connecting and sometimes not connecting. I figured it's the cause of one of those 5 main wires that go out to the usb cable. I don't know much about electronics but I ordered a soldering kit and desoldered those points. The turbo etc buttons are still soldered on. But I can't seem to solder suck the points out to clean it up so I can put the wire through it and resolder them better than when I originally purchased it. Any advice on what I should do? It's such a small space i'm working with on that pcb and being I don't know how to properly solder and the wires on the back are still on it moves about, I can't seem to desolder.

Donovan Myers: I've gotten this question a lot across my various stick mod videos. The best advice I can give is to follow the traces on the ribbon cables. They are labeled at the PCB. I believe the extra wire is just another ground.

Jose Hinojosa: i'm trying to do this mod on a MLG version of the TE, and it has 2 six ribbon cables instead the 5 and 6 as in your video. any help?

Donovan Myers: Are you talking about the 'break away' part of an Xbox cable? And are you talking about the one that came with your stick or the Paewang? The Paewang comes with a USB cable.

NoblesseOblige: So I accidently stepped on the end part of the cable that connects to the USB adaptor of my TE stick. It's bent out of shape and doesn't fit anymore. Is your tutorial only for when the cable is cut throughout the middle? Or does that mean that I have to buy another cable and cut both in half so that I can join them?

fefobiz: Thank you kind sir! And sorry for being rude before, I was upset because I had dropped my Stick on the floor and I kinda had to open it and fix with 0 knowledge. All good now though.

Donovan Myers: Printed Circuit Board. AKA green rectangles with metal stuff and wires on them.

fefobiz: what the freak is a pcb

Donovan Myers: Nope, sorry to confuse. Was just saying I don't know too much about it because when I dual moded my _360_ VLX, that I just popped a VLX Kitty in there. Your best bet with a PS3 stick is still the Akishop PS360+.

Donovan Myers: I don't know off hand, I'm pretty sure that that area has wires that lead back to the main PCB in the metal casing. If so, you should be able to intercept those and use them as well. My VLX is a 360 version and I ended up using the super simple VLX Kitty to dual mod it.

Donovan Myers: I have never come across anyone who's shorted out a PCB in the TE. And I myself have done some sketchy things that should have killed it. I would double check to make sure that the USB wires are securely connected and not crossed in anyway.

Donovan Myers: Thanks for the interest. Unfortunately I don't have an Akishop PS360+. I only have the old model Akishop. But I do have a VLX. There are a lot of harnesses in that stick. You can easily disconnect the USB & stick/button wires and cut off any connectors and put them in the proper slots in the Akishop PCB. If you don't want to cut anything, try and research making your own (.110 connectors & JLF harness & just cut up a spare USB cable).

Donovan Myers: The Paewang complete replaces any other PCB, and I don't believe it offers any 3-way capabilities. Since you have a 360 stick, you could use a dual-mod board, like the Phreak Mods TEasy Strike and that does let you have 3-way capability for PS3 and 360.

dawoud8013: hi ! thank you for your vidéo ! can you say me if this 3-way Joystick option is always fonctionnal when you pass in XBOX360 mod ? if not, do you know if it's possible to add a 3-way Joystick fonction in my Hori X360 Soul Edition ? thank you !

Donovan Myers: Yes, you can just cut off the ends of the ribbon cables for any mods. I don't know the SF x T layout, but you could find out yourself pretty easy: just look at where the ribbon cable hooks up to the PCB and it should be labeled. Alternatively, you could take a multi-meter and test continuity from the signal wire coming out of the punch-down (that's labeled) and a wire to figure it out. Sorry for the late reply, busy with the holidays.

Alonzo Cunningham: could i do what you did at 10:17 with the mc cuthulhu? and if so what is the lay out when both are 6 wires from the punch down? im useing the playstation version sf x tekken vs pro stick

jp mansfield: hi, i just wired everything up and it seems that only the joystick works. Can you please help me ?
