DS4 RemappeD JDM-030 and JDM-040
« on: November 15, 2015, 04:19:28 PM »
This is the updated miniDSm4pper (see here) for the JDM-030 version board (see here) that puts it on par with the X1D (see here) that I've made for the XB1 controller.


Up to 6 Tacts can be installed (minimum of 2 are needed, T1 and T2) and then they can be remapped to X, O, /\, [ ], L1, R1, L3, R3 and the D-pad. NOTE: Remapping D-pad Up and D-pad Down on separate Tacts, or D-pad Left and D-pad Right on separate, and then pressing them together, will not work as that can not be done on the controller anyway.

There are also spots for duplicating L2 and R2, or installing Tacts under the Triggers and wiring to those spots.

Installation is fairly simple and I've not gone into much detail on taking the controller apart as this info is already everywhere.

There are 4 screws to remove the back.

Unplug the Flex cable. Be careful as that is for the USB and Light Bar and it can be damaged easily when reinstalling.

Unplug and remove the battery.

Unclip the Battery Tray and remove.

Unplug the TP flex cable at the top of the PCB. Be careful with this one also.

There is one more screw for the PCB, and then there are 4 clips that hold the PCB in place.

The Rumble motors do not need to be desoldered as the PCB will 'flip' out of the way far enough to do the installation.

FULL VIEW


LEFT SIDE Make sure the Flex is seated under all of the clips.


RIGHT SIDE Make sure the Flex is under the clips on this side also.


Using Touch Pad Button as Mode Any Tact that goes to Ground can be used for the Mode button, and either of the MD pads can be used for this.


MD pad Closest to Touch Pad button used here.


PCB REINSTALLED


LEFT SIDE WIRING Green wire is going to the Green TP spot for the LED pad, aka Green of the Light Bar. The single Red wire is for L3. The row of 4 wires are Blue = T1, Yellow = T3, Red = T4, Black - Ground for T1, T3 and T5. Keep wires routed as shown so noting gets pinched when the back half of the shell is reinstalled. The unused MD pad is an alternate Mode button if you want to use some other button for Mode. The L2 spots are for a duplicate L2 Tact.


RIGHT SIDE WIRING The single Red wire is R3. The row of 4 wires are Blue = T2, Yellow = T4, Red = T6, Black - Ground for T2, T4 and T6. Keep wires routed as shown so noting gets pinched when the back half of the shell is reinstalled. The R2 Spots are for a duplicate R2 Tact.



Tact mounting is a personal preference as much as which ones you choose to use and where they will or will not fit, so it's not shown here.

HOW TO USE
 
NOTES:
From here on the Tact buttons will be referred to as T1, T2, T3, T4, T5 and T5.
The Mode Button and LED will be referred to as such, not what you wired them up to which will be the TouchPad button and either Red, Green or Blue.

CRS = Cross, X
CIR = Circle, O
SQR = Square, [ ]
TRI = Triangle, /\

Turn the controller on.

1 - Press and Hold T1 and T2.
2 - Tap the Mode Button, the LED will fade on and off.
3 - Release T1 and T2.

* From here on the RemappeD is in the Remap Mode and any of the Tacts can be Remapped in any order you choose, for example, to Remap the CRS Button to T1 you would..

4 - Press and Hold the CRS Button.
5 - Tap T1, LED will flicker.
6 - Release the CRS Button.


* If you're done Remapping the Tact Buttons, you can Exit the Remap Mode by going to step 7, or you can continue to Remap the other Tact Buttons in the same manner by repeating steps 4, 5 and 6, just replace T1 with the Tact you wish to Remap and then use whatever button you want on it, for example..

4 - Press and Hold TRI.
5 - Tap T2, LED will flicker.
6 - Release TRI.

NOTE: This RemappeD only does 1 button per Tact. It does not allow CRS and TRI on the same Tact or any combination like that. You can have all 6 Tacts remapped to TRI if you like, but it will not allow 2 different buttons on the same Tact.

7 - Tap the Mode Button, the LED will fade off and on a few times while the Remaps are being saved, then the LED will turn off. The Remaps are now saved and they will be recalled if the controller is turned off. The Tact Buttons can now be used.

Now when T1 is pressed it's the same as pressing the CRS Button, and when T2 is pressed it's the same as pressing TRI.


You can also disable a Tact Button by changing step 4 to not pressing any Button. For example, to disable T1, enter the Remap Mode like above, then..

4 - Do not press any of the Buttons on the controller.
5 - Press and Hold T1, the LED will blink.
6 - Release T1, the LED will go out.
7 - Tap the Mode Button to exit Remap Mode.

T1 is now blank and will do nothing when pressed. To use it again, just go thru the Remap steps like normal and choose the Button to use on it.

Screwing up is one of the best learning tools, so long as the only thing you're not learning is how to screw up.

New version for the JDM-040 'slim' controller has been finished now. Everything still works the same, but the installation is a little more involved.

There are also spots for hard wire duplicating L1, R1, L2 and R2, for example installing Tacts under the Triggers and wiring to those spots for 'hair triggers'.

Installation is fairly simple and I've not gone into much detail on taking the controller apart as this info is already everywhere and hasn't changed much.

There are 4 screws to remove the back.

Unplug the Flex cable. Be careful as that is for the USB and Light Bar and it can be damaged easily when reinstalling.

Unplug and remove the battery.

Unclip the Battery Tray and remove.

Unplug the TP flex cable at the top of the PCB. Be careful with this one also.

There is one more screw for the PCB, and then there are 2 clips that hold the PCB in place.

The Rumble motors do not need to be desoldered as the PCB will 'flip' out of the way far enough to do the installation.

Place the RemappeD board over the contacts as shown, and make sure the holes line up, then solder the MD pad to the TouchPad Tact lead.



Reinstall the controller board into the shell. NOTE: Make sure to reinstall the board screw at this time.

Fold the RemappeD over and solder the 4 connections GND, 3.2v, L3 and the unmarked one just below the T4 pad. This one is purely for keeping the RemappeD in place but must be soldered.



Solder a wire from the R3 pad to the R3 Tact as shown. Then solder a wire from the LED pad to only one of the 3 Resistors at the USB/LED connector. They are Green, Red, Blue in order from top to bottom. The one shown here is wired to the Blue LED of the Light Bar.



Tact installation not shown as it's more personal preference for placement and number of them. T1 and T2 must be installed though as they are used to enter the remap mode. Wire up the Tacts using either TG for the common for them, or any other Ground you like on the controller. Make sure not to route the wires where the battery tray will sit or the bottom half of the shell can pinch them.

HOW TO USE: See above, as this has not changed.

These here do not offer that option. No idea who has one that does the Triggers.

Gotcha. If that's all you are wanting to do though, you just need the Static Flex, SFX-040, as long as your controller is an -040 or -050 version.
