FFB only centering spring

Post by adventourer » Wed May 09, 2018 1:45 pm

Hi Matlo,

I purchased your GIMX Adapter and haven't had success getting proper FFB with Windows 10.
I can load the firmware and I can use my wheel to control the PS4 and drive in Gran Turismo Sport, but the wheel's FFB just feels like only the centering spring force that's working. I have unchecked combined pedal in Logitech Gaming Software.

As I had no luck with Windows, I resorted to using Raspberry Pi with automated raspbian image and it gives proper FFB so I know it's not the adapter which is at fault.

Further Info

Adapter : Original GIMX Adapter
Gaming target : PS4
Game : Gran Turismo Sport
Wheel : G27
Firmware : EmuG29PS4.hex
GIMX Launcher : 7.2 64 bit

Link to what is shown in the command prompt/ terminal when running GIMX

Appreciate your help on this.

Hi,

Could you please make another log file with the haptic debug flag enabled?
Select "Messages>debug", click on Start, select "log file" and validate, check "haptic" and validate.
Play a dozen of seconds and then stop GIMX.

And please upgrade to GIMX 7.3 before generating the log.

Please make another debug log file (select "debug" in the "Messages" drop-down menu) with "haptic" checked, and play a dozen of seconds.

Thanks.

Please try this test version: https://gimx.fr/download/0d00741f8006dd ... x86_64.exe

I made it for another user a couple of weeks ago. Sadly this user did not provide feedback.

Matlo,

I've tried it, no change on the FFB. When starting it still says as follows.

Code: Select all

src/windows/gprio.c:26 gprio: failed to set priority class
global option -c with value `LogitechG27_G29.xml'
controller #1: option -p with value `COM9'
now reading arguments for controller #2
subpos flag is set
force_updates flag is set
GIMX adapter detected, controller type is: G29 PS4.
Reset sent to the GIMX adapter.
found pass-through device 0x054c:0x09cc
Timer resolution: min=156250 max=5000 current=5013
rounding timer period to 501
registered joystick 0 with name "PS4 Controller"
using default refresh period: 5.00ms
Warning: macros are not available for: joystick PS4 Controller (0)
Haptic core has source haptic_source_lg for device 046d:c24f
Haptic core has sink haptic_sink_lg for joystick 1 (Logitech G27 Racing Wheel USB)
FFB invert: no
FFB gain: constant=100 spring=100 damper=100
Press the PS button to activate the controller.
rounding timer period to 4511

I have created debug log file with haptic checked as follows. Now when exiting GIMX (shift + esc) the program crashed.

Ok. Could you now try with GIMX 6.11?

Matlo,

It worked!!! I can feel the FFB and all it's glory now. Thank you 1000x
So you've pinpoint the culprit and there's a possibility incorporating in the next update or I should just use 6.11?

Below is the log file (without haptic checked)

This seems to be a bug introduced with GIMX 7.1. I'll investigate and try to fix it. I'll let you know when I have a new test version!
