Raspberry Pi GPIO for controller?

Post by Rautz » Sun Aug 26, 2018 6:49 am

Hopefully I am not first to attempt.

Would gimx be able to read the inputs coming through the raspberry pi gpio?


I have the diy adaptor connected by gpio header and it works perfectly. Now I need to do second part of the project and relocate everything along with ps4 into a bartop cab. In order to save a couple of dollars and time, I need to wire the buttons / stick directly to the pi gpio headers.

Is that too complicated and need some sort of software inbetween to read inputs and convert to keyboard strokes which gimx could convert to controller inputs for ps4 to recognize?

The mk_arcade_joystick_rpi software exposes the GPIO through the Linux joystick API, which means it should work.
