yeah, thats exactly what I did.  Which one is RX and RX2 if I put them on top of the other?. Right now I have the Bottom one as RX and the top as RX2.
Doesnt matter which one is RX or RX2.

Im still waiting for some part's but i will try to build the adapter with 4151 MCP's.

W11cE did you improve some benefits using those digital potenciometers or you still use 4131 one's?

If so, any tweak or any advise to take in consideration?

Thank's in advance.

I used 4151 MCP's and they work really well, they also have 256 steps.

I still have 4131, but will swap right stick axes with 4151 on the next weekend.

Cant really say any tweaks for hardware part.

I figured it out I needed the teensy add on... I cant calibrate the remote tho. Nothing happens.

I tried plugging in the teensy to pc and modded ds4 to host shield and nothing. Ive also tried modded ds4 to ps4 and nothing. how do I do it?

SUCCESS !!!

Thanks a million times to W11ce who was litterally holding my hand during the process. I love you man!

OK here is the noobs way in addition to W11ces tutorial. I made it at third attemt like Wurtswasser but there is a way to make it at once.

1. print the new Scheme, if you dont have a picture printer then go to a store that print it for you. You need to have that before you while torturing the Teensy board.
2. first do the multi-purpose adapter as its part of the Mod but already use the right colored wires. Do buy the colored wires as W11ce said or you will go crazy. When you are done hook the teensy up to a USB port or Iphone USB charger and an xbox controller to the USB shield. If the player 1 appears you are good to go on.
3. solder the 5V to the power triangle of the DS4 and  the GND of the DS4 to the Teensy. Test again with the USB port but this time connect the USB to the DS4 power triangle.
4. Do the buttons, again test with the USB port if the controller still gives you the player 1.
5. Do the MCP cascade, again test after each one or as much you like to go back if the controllerdoesnt light up.

This is the easiest way imho.

Again thanks W11ce see you on BF4

OK L3 works on 33 not 29 now all buttons work and in joy.cpl after calibration (???) the mouse does something on the two axes, the crosshair stays centered though.
Now how can I press options to get in BF4? I mean how can I map it? It let me in before just now it doesn’t work any more with the xbox controller start button.

I can look up and left and I can already see its extremely smooth. Triggers dont work. W11ce will have to babysit me a bit more.

So Roads, why is it now working in pin 33 instead of 29, I thought W11cE told us to now use pin 29, what's the theory behind this ?.

And did pin 29 work as you was doing your step by step check ?, if so why now do you have to change it to pin 33.
