Fails to start when taking input from network

Post by redion1992 » Wed Mar 07, 2018 4:00 am

Trying to get GIMX 7.2 to operate over a network, since the console is well away from the steering wheel.

Config on the "local" computer:

Code: Select all

Output: GIMX adapter
Port: COM3
Input: Network
IP:port: 192.168.1.11:51914 (this is the address of the computer with the wheel connected)
When I click Start, the following log is output:

Code: Select all

global option -l with value `log.txt'
controller #1: option -s with value `192.168.1.11:51914'
controller #1: option -p with value `COM3'
now reading arguments for controller #2

Are you sure about the IP? Please check with ipconfig.

Something you may not be aware of is that force feedback does not work when using a remote connection.

Figured it out; I had the adapter side IP set to the remote IP I wanted it to listen FOR, instead of the local IP I wanted it to listen ON. It's not really clear, unfortunately.

Didn't know that about the FFB not being transmitted, but guess I'll just deal with it.
