Need help with DIY GIMX

Post by Bushidos »

Hi all,
I've followed all the steps from the guide but somehow when I press start I always get the error "No game controller was found on usb ports"
My dualshock 4 is connected to the pc using good cable and the laptop detected the controller but gimx launcher seems to not detecting it?


Or am I just getting something wrong here.

Your firmware type is - G29 PS4

It is intended to use it with steering wheel. If you want to use gamepad or keyboard + mouse use EMUPS4 firmware.

Ok GoDlike, I've changed to EMUPS4. My DS4 is connected. I'm still getting the same error.

You need to use configuration you want. Right now you chose Dualshock4 which is made for using second dualshock 4 thus the error. Check the index - https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Config_Index
