Constantly breaking

Post by Wimza »

I've been using gimx for years on PS4 and love it.
But every time I shift-Esc in game and try to reconnect the whole thing falls apart. The check says everything looks ok but I can not activate keyboard and mouse by pressing the assigned PS key.
Everything on the GIMX screen is fine, cables were running perfectly but change them over anyway, reload firmware, look for updates, use different usb ports, power cycle... Same issue... Just can't activate KB&M again once the connection breaks once. If I go back to it in a few days it runs ok again. Sometimes uninstalling and reinstalling works too. What's going on and how can I avoid in future?

Are you using windows or Linux? Does log say anything unusual?

I think UART side is starting fault. Try with another one to make sure.

I tried new UART and Arduino too. Still same issue.
I then got an old laptop up with a fresh install of Windows 7 and same problem.
