So I'm mostly there.

My right stick y axis is stuck staring at the sky, I've re-wired and re-soldered and no change. Guessing my best option is to just replace the MCP4151's?

No, look for some soldering error. For the record its hard to kill those MCPs, maybe impossible. Replacing is to have the points soldered again. Check if the MCP feet are really attached. They may just look like they are.

Ok mate will do.

I think my options button is permanently pressed too as I can't get it to work in BF4, should be a simple fix though.

Fingers crossed I can get this working today and shoot some faces in BF4 and Ghosts tonight.

Replaced the RY MCP's and even soldered wires to both sides of the feet solder pots.

Still stuck with RY looking up.

So I think I'm missing something obvious again, time to check 100% of MCP wiring and after that go cry in a corner.

And SUCCESS!

I re-calibrated and now everything is working perfectly. This feels so fluid and perfect I wasnt expecting anything this flawless, literally better than my BF4 PS3 xim experience, feels about as close to running it on PC as I think is possible.

W11cE, Roads and everyone else who has contributed to the thread, thanks very much.

@Fars What was the culprit with the RY? What did you have to recalibrate?

Faulty MCPs it seems, or at least one of them in the RY stack was. Replacing them fixed it.

Calibration is covered earlier in the thread, just involves plugging in to pc.

just wanted to let everyone know I heated up the top MCP that was connected to the bottom MCP on my RX and it fixed my issue. it seems the connection must have been faulty

So I got all the necessary items in and will give this a go tomorrow. To clarify, the RX/RY MCP's that are stacked on top of each other are soldering together except for Pin 1 correct?

So it turns out the wires I received for the 5v and gnd are 24awg..are those too big to short something? I got 30 awg wires for everything else..

Another question, will the ds4 chat cable line-in at the bottom of the ds4 Controller work after its modded? I have a headset that plugs into it..

I was wondering the same thing, will voice chat still work?

I would not want to give up the ability to chat because every day when I play BF4 there are between 5 & 8 of us in party chat.
