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.

Hello,

Actually it did work with earlier Linux kernels, and some recent development in the Linux kernel (probably to add touchpad and motion sensing support) broke the mappings.

I'll update the default configuration.

Thanks for letting us know about this issue :)
