Q: I am interested in buying 2 of the Brook Universal Fighting Boards for an arcade cabinet but have a question before I order. On Windows 10, is the board detected as a Xbox controller or a generic usb game pad? I have had nothing but trouble with generic pads but Xbox 360 controllers/Fightsticks work like a dream in all my PC Games. I would love to put these Brook units in my cabinet to be able to swap in a PS4/pc/Xbox as desired but only if Windows will detect it as an Xbox controller not a generic one. Thanks for your help!
A: The Brook Universal Fighting Board registers as an XBOX pad by default on Windows, though you can force it to boot in different variations. From the Brook website:
The UFB supports manual selection of PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 mode and Wii U. It is suggested to be set to Xbox 360 mode on PC.
Step 1 : Press button:
1P for PS3
2P for PS4
3P for Xbox 360
4P for Xbox One
1K for Wii U - Pokken Tournament
2K for Original Xbox
Step 2 : While pressing, connect fightstick to system.
