Yes I know what you did. You must ONLY scratch the minuscule rectangular piece on the triangle. If the soldering touches the surounding triangular pcb you short.


Maybe THATS what went wrong with mine. Oh well, come tomorrow I probably won't care.

Hello all! I'm going to be attempting this mod as soon as I get all the parts in. Is there a certain type of 8.2kohm resistor I need to get? I'm browsing through mouser to purchase the resistors and found ceramic composition resistors that have different power ratings to choose from such as 1w, 2w and 1/2w. Does it matter which one I get? Thanks!

Would you happen to remember which exact resistor you bought?

Hi. It isnt that important which ones you get. But those you listed are really heavy for this one. Use 1/4W resistors. Even that is much more that is needed. I think the most common type is carbon film resistor.

Havent really thought about resistor types before. Why there has been this many questions about this? I always go to ebay, search "8,2k resistor 1/4W 100 pack", buy it, done. And you might only need 2 of those but still the pack is only something like 3Ä.

Do the digital version and you dont need them at all.

I must have missed something, but what is the digital version?

And to w11ce, I know it's been said plenty of times, but Thank you for compiling an awesome tutorial.. Especially for the ps4 users in need of a kb+m alternative while we wait for the xim4.

You can leave the MCPs and those resistors away and directly connect the triggers to the Teensy. You just have to unquote //use digital triggers in the firmware.

Roads, would you be able to take a picture of the digital triggers for me? I need a visual schematic to kind of understand things especially as far as wiring goes.

So I'm guessing that I wire the L2 and R2 points from the DS4 Pcb directly to the teensy rather than route it via an MCP4151? So that means I'll only be using 6 total 4151's?

Also, what wire size did you use for the 5v and ground?

What the @#$% ? Didnt i just answer here... ok...

The wire i used for those was 28 AWG. For digital triggers you just connect SS pin to DS4 pcb instead of MCP.
