I wanted to know, with detail, how to access every feature in my SCV Madcatz TE fightstick when using the PS360+ pcb. I want to be able to use Start Select Home, Turbo and the associated tournament lockout switch.
How to fully access all TE features on PS360+ mod

We'll see if we can get a detailed answer for you, Steven.
To help give you the best details I'll need to first know if you plan on installing it in the 360 or PS3 TE version.

In the posted picture is the pcb that is under the Home Panel in a PS3 TE-S and newer.
In the orange box are the wires for the 8 buttons, Start, Select, and Ground used for the 8 buttons. These wires should be cut from the pcb, stripped, and placed in their corresponding screw terminal location on the PS360+.
The wire in the blue box should not be cut and should be left alone. This wire is the ground for the Start and Select button which the Lock Switch controls.
The contact pad in the yellow box and has the number 2 next to it is where you can access the Home button. You'll need to solder a wire here and then place the other end of the wire into the screw terminal for Home on the PS360+. Since the PS360+ does not have turbo support, you will not be able to do anything with the Turbo button. If you were to ever want/need to wire the Turbo button up to anything, the contact pad with the number 1 next to is is where you can access the Turbo button.
In the red square is Vcc. This is wired to the Vcc screw terminal on the PS360+.
In the black square is Gnd. This is wired to any of the Gnd screw terminals on the PS360+.
The wires for the Joystick should be cut from the connecter thats plugged into the pcb, stripped, and placed in their corresponding screw terminal location on the PS360+. In this picture the wires (from the order of left to right on the connecter plugged into the pcb) are Down, Up, Left, Right, Gnd.

For all of the PS3 versions that came out before the TE-S version the process is the same. It should just be noted that the wire that is pictured in the blue box did not exist in pre TE-S versions. In those versions, the lock switch only disabled the Home button. It wasn't until the TE-S that the Start and Select buttons were disabled via the lock switch.
Would you have a picture of a completed mod wiring the PS3 TE-S PCB to the PS360+ and does it allow the player LED's to function?
Hey Guys here's the semi finished product. I had to watch the joystick hence the mounting. I couldn't get the LED's connected. Any advice would be appreciated.
We'll see if Gummowned can review your setup.
Oh quick note, I do have the expansion cables and led wires from you. Just stuck on how to tether them to the lights. Then I can de-solder that JP1 spot on the PS360+
Gummo and support:
Here is a shot of it all soldered in. Can't figure out the LEDs though...
Where do I solder the jst led wires?
HI Joey - let me see if Gummowned can address your questions.
There are two different spots you can solder to. Either to the vias or the contact pads around the chip. They are labeled which player number they are.
What about the ground wire for the LED's
Where do I solder the VCC for LED harness? The pic posted by Gummowned only shows soldering points for the P1-P4 wires, not VCC. Thank you.
