The controller stops working after 8 minutes

Post by BrokeNPie »

Hello, after ~8 minutes after connecting the controller (Logitech G25), it stops working. I tried to change the cables and ds4, even tried to connect through another PC. I have also repeatedly reinstalled the GIMX software(tried different versions) and drivers.
I myself made a GIMX adapter using Teensy 2 and the CP2102 module.
The firmware - 8.0(6.5)/EMUG29PS4/atmega32u4.hex
PS4

Code: Select all

global option -l with value `log.txt'
global option -c with value `LogitechG25_G29.xml'
controller #1: option -p with value `COM5'
now reading arguments for controller #2
grab flag is unset
status flag is set
subpos flag is set
force_updates flag is set
GIMX 8.0 x86_64
Windows 10 (or later) x64
Kernel version: 10.0 (19042)
GIMX adapter detected, controller type is: G29 PS4.
Firmware version: 8.0
Reset sent to the GIMX adapter.

At the moment when I pressed the PS, options, share, etc. buttons, the controller no longer responded to my actions

Is your PS4 controller connected to your PC?

Yes, of course, I do everything exactly as in the instructions.

Are you using it on PS4 or PS5?

Hi there,
Hope all is well.
I have the same issue. My G25 is working fine and less than 10 mins, it will lock the wheel to the right turn position and stop working after that point.
Check the PC and with text output set on the screen, I can see the wheel emulation is still working properly. Turing left and right, up down, left and right, gas, brake all can be seen being captured.
Like the person above, tried switching PC and cables seem not resolving the issue.
Any suggestion would be appreciated. Really don't have extra money to spend in the midst of pandemic with the latest Russians invasion into Ukranine. The world is heading in the wrong direction.
Thanks.

I purchased the adaptor rather than build my own

Forgive me if you have already checked, but if you are on PS4 then the only thing I can think of is that the controller may still be on when you are connecting it to the PC. I usually connect my controller to the PC first, then turn on the PS4 via the top button.

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
Would you mind to give us an exact order in steps? Should I power on the PS4 before running the GIMX software? I can remember if I run the software first, it will complain about the adpator is missing.
Sorry in the office right now and could not verify.
Thanks again.

The main thing is to ensure the DS4 is off before connecting it the PC. If you let it pair directly to the PS4 (e.g. you use it to power up the PS4) it will prevent GIMX using it to authenticate.

I usually do the following:

1. turn on PC
2. connect DS4 to PC
3. turn on PS4 with the top button (this should then power the GIMX adapter)
4. start up GIMX
5. press PS button on DS4

If it still disconnects after 8 minutes when doing the above, then it's probably some other issue...
