Logitech Driving Force Wireless support

Post by rokb » Mon Apr 24, 2017 9:42 pm

Hello.

I was wondering if GIMX supports Logitech Driving Force Wireless (http://support.logitech.com/en_us/produ ... e-wireless) on PS4?

Thanks!

Hi,
It can be used for controls, but it only supports rumble effects.
Rumble effects may work using the EMUPS4 firmware, but this is untested.

Thank you for quick reply.

If I understand correctly, force feedback will not work on this wheel. But all controls are functioning normally.

Regards!

Hello.

Today I received GIMX adapter :)

Can you please help me with instructions on how to connect it to the Logitech Driving Force Wireless steering wheel. The steering wheel has no USB port on it because it communicates with a wireless adapter that has a USB male connector (https://www.picclickimg.com/00/s/ODg0WD ... el-_57.jpg).
Therefore I can not connect the wireless adapter directly to the cable which is provided together with GIMX adapter. Can I use different USB cable (M micro / F) or USB F/F adapter or it is another way?

Thank you!

GIMX is not a standalone adapter. A computer (laptop, raspberry pi...) is required.

I understand that.

I followed your notes:
1) I connected micro USB male plug of provided cable to the micro female USB plug of the GIMX adapter
2) I connected USB male plug of the GIMX adapter to the computer

Then I suppose that I must connect the USB plug of the provided cable to the wheel - I my case to Logitech USB wireless adapter of the wheel. But the USB cable and wireless adapter both have USB male plug, so I can not connect them togeher ?

The USB male plug of the cable goes to the PS4.

Thank you. I was a bit confused.

Now I connected properly. But when I press start on gimx-launcher it stops with an error.

Log file:

Code: Select all

global option -l with value `log.txt'
global option -c with value `LogitechDrivingForceWireless_PS4.xml'
controller #1: option -p with value `COM5'
now reading arguments for controller #2

gusb.c:1059 gusb_open_ids: libusb_init failed with error: Entity not found
No controller was found on USB buses.
gimx.c:208 SDL_main: no adapter detected

The wheel is displayed and recognized in Widows Control Panel.

Could you advise me where is the problem.

Did you install USBDK as suggested at the end of the GIMX setup? If not, reinstall GIMX and leave the USBDK chexkbox enabled at the end of the setup. If you did, make sure to apply all Windows updates and reinstall USBDK.
