I don't think using a higher baudrate will fix the issue. That said, it would be nice for cp2102-based adapter owners if it could run at 2Mbps.

I do have a DFGT wheel in the basement, and some RPi boards on my desk (but not version 4). I'll try to have a look in the next days.

As far as I remember CP2102 maximum baud rate is about 920k but only 500k is usable with GIMX. 1kk and 2kk modes aren't working with my CP2102. CP2104 is capable of 2kk.
Is this an evidence that my CP2102 can 2kk?

Code: Select all

GIMX adapter detected, controller type is: G29 PS4.
Firmware version: 8.0
Reset sent to the GIMX adapter.
Current baudrate: 500000 bps.
Trying baudrate: 2000000 bps.
Using baudrate: 2000000 bps.
found pass-through device 0x054c:0x09cc
rounding timer period 1000us to 998us
registered joystick 0 with name "PS4 Controller"

Hey

I have something we can try if you dont mind, recently there was a new release of the Rpi4B the 8GB model and with it came a new OS simply named Raspberry Pi OS its not built on Raspbian this is the link for the 32 bit version. I hope that this will actually perform better.

This Raspberry Pi OS was installed on my RPi4 when we tried last fixes. So I have an idea. Can I somewhere download an oldest Raspbian which work on the RPi4 and install the Gimx without update? Because all my tries was maybe just on new Raspberry Pi OS. So I just need to know which oldest version of Raspbian work smooth with RPi4.

Here's the index of all the images since raspbian wheezy, you wont be able to go back to far if I recall you can only run buster on the Pi4 as that came out when it was released and stretch went into end of life.

This was the first version of buster

Here is a 64 bit image with GIMX 8 already loaded it was created on a RPI4B 2GB Model, I used 7 zip to compress it. Password was set to password so I recommend you change it after its loaded.

Last evening I tested my DFGT on a RPi3B with 2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf (and all updates applied) and GIMX 8.0.

I also observed from time to time the LIBUSB_TRANSFER_TIMED_OUT errors. These errors happen when the hardware is not able to respond in due time. Despite these errors the force feedback is quite functional on my setup.

I'll have a look at getting these errors disappear. Maybe there is some kernel parameter that can solve this.

Tried - it did the same problem (wheel gets stuck) but the log didn't shows the timeout error - here is the log file https://drive.google.com/file/d/1qOij58 ... sp=sharing
