Nacon Unlimited Revolution Pro + Raspberry Pi

Post by sourander »

Hi,

Any tips on how I might get the Nacon Revolution Pro to work with GIMX and Playstation 4 Pro? I have the Nacon USB dongle attached to Raspberry.

I tested the controller using the Chromium (it came with Raspbian OS). It recognizes it as "Bigben Interactive Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller (Vendor: 146b Product: 0d08)". All buttons and axes work.

However, when I try to run gimx as a pass-through, I get this error:

Code: Select all

user@thingy:~/gimx $ gimx -p /dev/ttyUSB0 -c Dualshock4.xml --nograb

controller #1: option -p with value `/dev/ttyUSB0'
now reading arguments for controller #2
global option -c with value `Dualshock4.xml'
grab flag is unset
GIMX adapter detected, controller type is: DS4.
Firmware version: 8.0
Reset sent to the GIMX adapter.
Current baudrate: 500000 bps.
Trying baudrate: 2000000 bps.
Using baudrate: 2000000 bps.
Error: No game controller was found on USB ports.
Below is some potentially helpful info:

Code: Select all

cat /proc/bus/input/devices

I: Bus=0003 Vendor=146b Product=0d08 Version=0111
N: Name="Bigben Interactive Revolution Unlimited Pro Controller"
P: Phys=usb-0000:01:00.0-1.1/input3

P.S. The Dualshock 4 works just fine, but Nacon would be handy since it is wireless.

It won't work. DualShock 4 is needed for authentication.

Even though it works directly with PS4? They dont share the same auth process?

Nope. Keys are different for vendors. You may get it working by modyfing GIMX code and passing correct packets from controller if you want.
