GIMX not working :(

Post by paweu_ » Fri Jan 31, 2020 9:46 pm

Hi. After months of hardcore use of my own GIMX adapter it eventually broke. Since I didn’t have all required hardware to build another one I bought one from Malto. I spent 30 Euros, waited one week and here it is. I didn’t change any setups on my PC, used old config files etc. only to find out I have a problem. It all connects fine but I can’t use AWSD in PS4 menus and nothing works in game. I tried different version of GIMX software but still no luck. Any ideas what is wrong or if I’m doing something wrong? Help.

Hi,

Maybe you did not load the right firmware?

Before I send the log, what do you mean I didn’t load right firmware? Do you mean I should load anything onto the GIMX USB adapter that I bought from you? I thought that would be plug&play.

It comes with the EMUG29PS4 firmware preloaded. It is said in product description. Loading another firmware is very easy, it can be done in a few clicks using gimx-loader.

I see that GIMX soft, I’m using version 7.15 has this option “Update Firmware”. There is a drop down with different hex files. For PS4 controller, do I need to select EMUPS4.hex or maybe EMUG29PS4.hex as this is what I see on the log (controller type is: G29 PS4). I’m using standard PS4 DualShock, stock.

Well, complying with the rules (providing a log file) usually helps providing the appropriate answer quicker.

Since you mentioned AWSD and PS4, I guess you want to use the EMUPS4 firmware.

The guide for your use case is here:

You're right, should have pasted the log in the first place: https://pastebin.com/8LLxZNVh sorry mate. How do I update firmware? It doesn't work when trying with the launcher.

OMG it worked. Thanks man. I actually tried it ALMOST right before. This time I actually disconnected the usb and plugged back in and then it started updating. Thanks so much Malto. And forgive me for not complying with the rules :( You’re a champ!
