HI

i have windows 7 64bit.
I bought the readymade adaptor from gimx.
i went to software installation and downloaded gimx-6.10-x86_64.exe.
now i have gimx launcher, gimx fpsconfig,gimx config on my desktop.
i dowmloade dsoftware for my ff gp wheel too.
i connected the micro usb cable with my adaptor to micro of my adaptor.
connected the other end of cable to computer.
connected wheel via usb to computer.
what do i do now.what do i select on launcher in output,port,input,config, ?
what do i do on fps config?
what do i select on gimx config.
nothing happened when i connected my original gimx adaptor via usb.

all this is too complicated for a layman like me and there are no clearcut info with gimx.

Hello,

Please read the quick start guide - https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Quick_Start and tutorials from main wiki page https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

Gimx-launcher is program for playing with steering wheel. Gimx-config and gimx-fpsconfig are intented to edit configurations

Output - DIY USB
Port -> only available COM port for adapter
Config -> Configuration file you want to use
Grab Mouse -> Yes if you want to use mouse


Let me know if you have further questions.

Getting 'joystick not found logitech g25 racing wheel usb (0)'

Post by Mopar_Matt » Sat Oct 28, 2017 3:19 am

G'day!
Faced this following problem: :?: :?: :?:

I have the official GIMX adapter from Matlo

Console PS 4 (500gb)

Joystick PS4

Steering Wheel Logitech G25 ( I just bought this this morning as i have given up on my old Logitech Driving Force being usable)

Laptop Windows 10

My GIMX is new and I have downloaded the config files, selected the G25 version but when I click on CHECK I keep getting this error

'joystick not found logitech g25 racing wheel usb (0)'

I have spent time reading posts before posting this and nothing seems to make my G25 present to the GMIX app?

Any ideas or pointers greatly appreciated

Thanks,

Matt

I opened gimx launcher..selected to load emug29ps4.hex .
Reply was plug both sides of adaptor to the computer.
I did try plugging both sides of adaptor but it didn't work
I only plugged usb plug if adaptor to comp.
After I clicked ok says unpung/replug usb cable (pro micro side of the adaptor)
Then a popup no new device found within 10 seconds

On which console you want to play? PS4? GIMX official adapter already ships with emu29PS4 so no need to flash same firmware again.

Blue side to the console, microUSB->USB to PC. You need both, DS4 and steering wheel connected to the PC. Then start gimx-launcher, it should auto select COM port. Choose Force Feedback GP config, if you don't have it then Help->Get Configs and download it.
