xbox360 with ds4 incorrect mapping issue

Post by wahef58696 »

Hi everyone. Thank you Matlo for this great project. I am trying to use a DIY adapter on Xbox360 console with Dualshock4 controller.
I have modified gimxcontroller/firmware code to authenticate with a 3rd party Afterglow controller (used a tutorial from this forum).
When I start Gimx with Dualshock4.xml file, DS4 is working, but all the mappings are incorrect :(

Edit: Fixed it by creating a new config file with the Gimx configurator.

Hi

If you open the file with the config editor is the type set to 360pad ? From the log file it looks like its still set to Dualshock 4
Please Remember to Post your Log file in the support section , that way its easier and faster to start identifying the issue thus helping you to sort it out so you can enjoy GIMX :D .

changed it to type="360pad" now, but nothing changed :( . RS sends guide, guide sends LS, triangle sends B etc.
what exactly does type variable do?

another note:
after launching Gimx, it starts working immediately (after the vibration) without pressing the guide button. it still
says "Press the guide button of the controller for 2 seconds". Meanwhile xbox controller's light is a complete ring
fading in and out (like the wireless controller waiting to be synced). However holding the guide button does nothing.
Is is that because I am using a 3rd party controller for authentication?

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0e6f:0213 Logic3 Afterglow Gamepad for Xbox 360
On wiki, we used a genuine wired 360 controller.
I think you need to remap buttons in gimx-config.

isn't Xbox gamepad only used for authentication? DS4 is a genuine one.

If target console is X360, X360 wired controller is required. I'm not sure if Logic3 Afterglow Gamepad works or not.

I realized Dualshock4.xml is only a test file for PS4.
