Gimx PS4 Fanatec Porsche GT3 V2

Post by fx01 » Wed Jan 03, 2018 3:28 pm

hello,

i bought the official gimx adapter and wanted to use it with my fanatec porsche gt3 v2 ...

on the gimx is the "emups4g29 firmware"

but now im bit confused it seems like the wheel is detected as a driving force gt ?!!!!!!!? cause i always read it should be g25?!

when i try the g25 to g29 it says joystick not detected but when i try the driving force configs it says fine....

whats going on here ?! is that normal?! do i have to create my own custom config ?! or do i need a different firmware for the gimx ?!

greetings,

g.g

Hello,

Relax. Let's make some clarification. "emups4g29" firmware means it emulates G29 wheel for Playstation 4 regardless of wheel you really have. Now firmware and config are two different things. Firmware is for GIMX adapter and configuration is for GIMX software on your PC that sends signals to adapter. GIMX adapter with emups4g29 firmware identifies itself as a G29 wheel for a console. You also need configuration so you may send normalized input signals from your PC with gimx software to the adapter using cable.

Yes you need to make your own config because there's no pre-built config for your wheel. You can check this guide - https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Cr ... igurations

Some Fanatec wheels may have Logitech compatibility mode that masks them into Logitech wheels that more games use.

Basically you need to connect your wheel to the PC. Connect turned off Ps4 pad to PC. Connect both cables and play.

That depends on you. With logitech compatibility mode you could use direct FFB translation rather than OS translation but it should work both ways. With fake mode on and off. Try both if you want.

You will also need to create a custom config but it's pretty easy and fast to make it.

It should work as long you use correct firmware and turned off Ps4 pad before connecting to the PC. Remember that it needs to be wired all the time.

Try mapping a different key as PS.

Hello fx01,

I do not own a fanatec wheel, but I still wanna know more about it. When you use fake mode, FFB funtion works or not? Thank you :)
