Random disconnects and occasional input oddities

Post by bliffman »


I have the logitech driving force gt and I'm using GIMX (I had an old version but recently updated to 7.15), Windows 10 PC, playing F1 2018 on PS4 and I'm experiencing two problems.

1) As a controller the wheel used to be solid, i.e, once connected it stays connected but now it disconnects randomly every so often (different intervals and sometimes not for 40 mins or longer). I have disabled the device management checkboxes on all related devices and been through all settings in power management on my PC but can't see anything that looks likely to be causing this.

I have turned off power

2) When I am driving, every so often I'll get randomly overtaken by a load of cars even though I've got my foot to the floor and gearing correctly etc it's like the accelerator input only goes to 50% sometimes. It's fairly rare but it's also difficult to detect. In these cases, I do a Flashback (go back 20 secs) and it seems fine, put the foot to the floor and I get 100%.

I love the GIMX solution but if anyone can help me to fix these frustrations I'd really appreciate it :D

You should make a log file through gimx launcher (messages>Log file) then copy paste all the data into a pastebin
It’s helps out everyone a lot, most of the time it captures the problem at hand.

As Josh said, a log file is needed. Make sure to reproduce the issue while generating the log file. If it's too big to be hosted on pastebin, use file sharing services like google drive.

I came across this old thread whilst I was researching a similar problem. I've solved it so thought I'd describe the problem and solution.

Setup is Linux Mint on a laptop, PS4 and Driving force GT with a DIY adapter using a Teensy ++2.

I would get random disconnects roughly 20 minutes in, then a second after 5 mins and a third and then no issues for the rest of my session. The setup would reconnect by itself about about 40 seconds and nothing showed up on the log (or on-screen if I was using text output on the laptop).

The problem started when I moved my setup so instead of my original setup of: laptop - Gimx Adapter - USB extension cable (80cm) - PS4, I had changed to: Laptop - USB Extension cable - Gimx Adapter - PS4. I've been able to adjust my kit so I can back to the original layout and there are no longer any issues.
