Re: Easy Automated Raspbian Image for using G27 as G29 with

That is f'ing cool. I might need to try and replicate one of those. Maybe with longer cables so the switch is closer to my wheel.

Re: Raspberry Pi powered by PS4 usb port

Thanks for sharing! I enjoy seeing how people use GIMX :) Thanks Matlo!! I actually ended up getting a T300 a couple of weeks ago, but the GIMX project is so interesting to me that I still have my G27 so I can play around with my GIMX setup. At first I was just looking for a way to use my g27 with ...

Raspberry Pi powered by PS4 usb port

I have an older Raspberry Pi model B with a 700mhz single core, 256mb ram and 2 usb ports. I am able to connect my RPi B to my PS4 using only one usb port on the PS4. I use a hub that has one port going to power on the RPi and the other to communicate through the DIY adapter. They type of hub doe se...

Re: Easy Automated Raspbian Image for using G27 as G29 with

I made a Youtube! I had major performance anxiety during the driving portion, so don't pay attention to that part :D . I showed how I connected the setup and its basic operations.

Check out at least the first 2 and a half minutes and let me know what you think.

Re: Easy Automated Raspbian Image for using G27 as G29 with

Tanks Waveform. I just installed Noobs and Raspbian after that. I've everything running but only for a while. After a few minutes the Wheel's LED begins to blink and it doesn't response. No FFB and none of the buttons work. All components are connected to the Pi3 so I suppose there is not enough po...

Re: Easy Automated Raspbian Image for using G27 as G29 with

Ok, I made some tests but nothing happened... with the "xev" command, there are no catches of the wheel in raspbian... I will keep trying! BTW, I noticed a lot of difference between using a PC and a Rpi with GIMX, especially about force feedback! The FF with PC is smooth and realistic, while the FF...

Re: Easy Automated Raspbian Image for using G27 as G29 with

I've been just turning off the PS4 via the wheel (navigate to power options and turn off the system) and it hasn't corrupted my image yet. I'll let you guys know if that changes though. Even yesterday when I was running the test and played for 45+ minutes, I actually just left everything on and when...

Re: Easy Automated Raspbian Image for using G27 as G29 with

Waveform, I am glad to hear that you figured everything out and that your disconnection issues have come to an end. I love using an earlier RPi model since it uses less power. Thanks to Matlo's GIMX software that takes almost no computing power to run, and the image that you (Waveform) provided, I c...

Re: Easy Automated Raspbian Image for using G27 as G29 with

... Thanks cortega, the disconnects are happening with Project Cars on my PS4, I haven't tried it in other games, but could try with Project Cars. ... I just ran my setup for 45+ minutes with no issues. In Project Cars I did a couple runs on Azura, and a run of the California highway for about 35 m...

Re: Easy Automated Raspbian Image for using G27 as G29 with

.... Mine disconnects and possibly GIMX crashes after about 7-8 minutes of connecting the G27 to the PS4. The DS4 is set to never turn off in power options. I seem to have the same problem as in this thread, except with a Raspberry PI model B and the Raspbian image: http://gimx.fr/forum/viewtopic.p...
