G920 on PS4 / PS3 / PS2 HELP NEEDED

Post by thekingm249 »

Hello everyone

Am really sorry if this was asked before its just i couldn't find a clear information regarding my issue .

First of all i want to thank the creators of GIMX of making the idea of one steering wheel on different consoles a possibility.
I need your help cause i am a total noob when it comes to arduino. this is my very first project and i want to make a GIMX adaptor.

So long story short i live in a 3rd world country and our central bank does not allow buying goods online outside the country so am trying to make GIMX adaptor to use a G920 on PS4 (GTsport), PS3 (GT6) and PS2 (GT4).

i searched online for an arduino leaonardo and i found this in a local online store :
https://www.price.tn/product/leonardo-r ... able-khwqp

and a 6pin CP2106 from an other store
https://2betrading.com/accueil/1758-car ... duino.html

(sorry both links in french)

My question is are those the right components needed for this project ?
if yes how to proceed? is there any tutorial?

your help is very much appreciated and am really sorry if this post against forum rules.

Thank you in advance

Hello.
I think i can help you a little.
This arduino is probably what most of us use https://www.price.tn/product/arduino-pr ... 3-3v-q99xy It cost less than the one you linked.

The UART you need is an - CP2104 USB-TTL UART.
CP2102 does work, but as i have read somewhere here is that it´s slower than the CP2104. (dont take my word for it though)

Hope i helped you in some form :D

It should be soldered for a good connection. You can test it using wires though but it may not work properly.

Should work.
Are you sure you can not order from Amazon or ebay?

Now even with those right components i need to solder them, something i never done before

Can you order from here? :arrow: https://www.ubuy.tn/en/ubcheckout/cart/ ... 7df20c8442
There is both the atmega32u4 board and the uart cp2104 micro controller.

It´s not as hard as it looks.
https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=DI ... ter#Wiring
3 thin wires needs to be soldered between both boards.
GND - GND
TX - RX
RX - TX

Just use a small tip solder iron, and a steady hand.
when that is done the hard part is done :D
