can this style of wheel work ?

Post by Gadgeroonie » Mon Feb 27, 2017 10:17 pm

i built my son a driving simulator some time ago and it uses this wheel

http://www.terapeak.com/worth/logitech- ... 876215040/


Logitech Driving force

i have been able to get it to autoconfig and recognise the buttons when they are pressed etc in the gimx config

however - device manager sees it as a usb input device

i bought the gimx recently from the shop and i think it is working

not yet been able to get the wheel to work

Hi,
This wheel should work. The only limitation is that the wheel range can only be either 200 or 900 degrees.
Once you have a working configuration, please post it so that I can add it into the config repository!

I have not been able to get it to work

is there a config that is similar I can try ?

the Gimx config program finds all its buttons and axis

Not been having much luck with the GIMX

I can not get the Driving Force wheel to work at all

I tried a G25 wheel - the ps4 will recognise it as a controller. The gear stick buttons work but the pedals and steering wheel do not work at all

:(

i am doing something wrong here - do i need to reprogram the firmware for the Gimx ?

Try this one for the Driving Force wheel: http://pastebin.com/raw/htBVT4d8

Try the LogitechG25_G29.xml configuration for the G25 wheel (get it through Help>Download configs in gimx-launcher).

Hi Guys

I tried the set up and the wheel worked but the buttons were wrong.

Below is the set up I made and it seems to work perfectly :)

The forcefeedback seems a bit strong - do i need to turn it down in the software on the PS4 ?

thank you for your help, I am really impressed with your product :)

Hi,

I noticed that you changed the device name from "Logitech Driving Force USB" to "Logitech Driving Force".
How did you got the first one?

Could you please tell me what is the value of the following key in the registry?
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_046D&PID_C294\OEMName

EDIT: also, what is your Windows version?
