Using Gimx as PS3 for android tablet game

Post by Benny_ds » Wed Jan 08, 2020 9:44 am

Hi

Searched the forum but couldn't find an answer.
I play some games using a PS3 controller and a OTG cable on an android tablet.
I tought the Gimx pretended to be a ps3 controller and that it would be plug and play. It's not :lol:

Is it possible to use an android tablet as the destination device?
Or would be alot of work to add it? ;)

I get these codes returned in the window:
1578478187.735653 debug packet received (size = 1 bytes)
0x02
1578478187.736181 debug packet received (size = 1 bytes)
0xee

Gimx works fine on the PS3 so no hardware problem.
Thx for the feedback.

GIMX pad emulation is intended for consoles. It may work on PC/Android but it is not officially supported feature.

Steam: Godlike_RU | PSN: GoDlike_RU | XBL: GoDlike

I moved this topic to the discussion section since it talks about an unsupported target platform.

I have some ongoing work to improve the firmwares, which will make allmost all firmwares work with a PC as target. This may make your use case work as well.
