no dualshock4 controller was found on USB ports!!!

Post by partyzone »

Hello, we use Parsec DS4 emulator gamepad by Vigen and ReWasd emulator DS4 but everytime No Dualshock 4 gamepad on USB.
BUT else firmwares with same gamepads works fine,
Question: Why GIMX search USB gamepad and not use same DS4 gamepads? RemotePlay of PS4 perfectly take ReWasd Gamepad and we play ok, but GIMX say - no one gamepads find. It try search phisical gamepad? Can you fix it? Like xbox360 firmware, use virtual gamepads.

Code: Select all

global option -l with value `log.txt'
global option -c with value `Dualshock4.xml'
controller #1: option -p with value `COM9'
now reading arguments for controller #2

Hi

This is because GIMX requires a genuine DS4 connected to usb for console authentication. It will not be compatible with a software emulated device as the id/device descriptor is not the same.

If you connect a DS4 and create a log again you will see it states found pass-through device 0x054c:0x05c4

Good day and you.
Maybe in future you can fix that? Because many else software and hardware support virtual DS4 without any physical pads. If i can help or some support for you - please fill free me, i realy want to help and i need this feature. What need to change physical to virtual?

There is nothing broken with GIMX it was written in this way requiring a genuine Dualshock 4 connected for authentication.

I will pass on your request but I doubt there will be a feature like this as it will require key extraction used for the encryption process and that itself violates the ELUA and can put the person doing it in hot water.
