Controller Hangs after 10 mins

Post by ramiboo »

Hi Guys, not sure if this is a new wondows update issue or what. I used to have no issues running the GIMX playing project cars 2 on PS4. It seem to only be lasting 10 mins at a time before it's like the controller locks up. I then have to Shift+ESC to disconnect the controller from the PS4 and start it up again. I can resume fine for another 10 mins. The controller timeout on the PS4 is set to 60mins so I'm thinking its something the PC side. Like a USB blip or reset. I've closed any software that might be interfering with the controllers I'm using on the PC side but none of that has made a difference. I've reinstalled GIMX and have tried running it as Admin but nothing affects the hang. Any ideas you think I can try. There are no erros reported in the CMD window.

Code: Select all

global option -c with value `SimuCube-CSP-CSH-F1.xml'
controller #1: option -p with value `COM4'
now reading arguments for controller #2
subpos flag is set
force_updates flag is set
auto-grab flag is set

The other thing is that the actual PS4 controller that is connected to the USB of the PS4 also hangs in the PS4. That one cannot be recovered until I restart the PS4.

I wonder if it's because the controller I've got connected to my PC via USB should not be connected to the PS4 also?

If I were you, I would have tried another controller and cable.

I've used gimx and ps4 with only one controller, no trouble at all.

Just a quick question, the controller you are using for authentication is it a genuine controller or one of those generic ones?

GIMX needs the Dualshock 4 to be turned off (as stated in the documentation). Press the PS button until it turns off, and then connect the USB cable to the PC.
