Matlo,

Now the FFB is working perfectly OK even though it shows below in the terminal i.e." macros are not available" & "FFB gain: constant=100 spring=100 damper=100".

The macro feature only works for the first joystick device found in the configuration - in your case it is the G27 - and the FFB gain has default values 100%. You can safely ignore these messages.

The fix will land in GIMX 7.4. Thanks a lot for the feedback and your patience for the tests!

Hi Matlo it's Julian. Hope you're doing well my friend.

Wanted to let you know I tried the latest two test versions you posted a few days ago in this thread. Not sure if adventourer is getting the same thing on his end, but on my end using the PC, the changes you've made results in the spring effect going dead during the race. I've tried a few games like Daytona USA and Sega Rally and during the race the spring effect goes limp randomly and *ONLY* comes back when a different effect activates such as "constant". Then the spring will turn back on but then goes dead again. The good news is that at least with this latest test version, the spring effect doesn't stay on after closing the game.

I want to point out that this issue described above does not happen in version 7.0 or previous to that. However, the issue with 7.0 and earlier versions is that once the spring effect activates when running the game, it remains active at all times even after closing the emulator. I don't really mind it remaining active at all times during the game, but when I close the game/emulator, the spring effect should de-activate. If there was a way to deactivate the spring effect somehow without having to restart gimx, and by pressing some kind of hotkey, I could live with that. The only way to de-activate it in 7.0 is to close gimx and restart it. I will post a log file of what happens using your latest 7.3 test version shortly.

The bug fixed in the test version linked earlier in this topic made the spring effect (not all games use it) remain active all the time (once started). The stop command sent for the spring effect was misinterpreted as a stop command for the constant effect.
