Stuck on "Press the PS button to activate the controller"

Post by Yurikerr » Sat Sep 01, 2018 10:15 pm

Hi, i searched for it, but my config seems to be rare.

I have DIY USB (Arduino Uno R3 + CP2102), Logitech G27, Windows 10 Laptop and Playstation 4.
I have updated firmware EMUG29PS4.hex with ATMEL Flip.

I connect to the laptop:
- the wheel,
- the CP2102 ,
- the powered off DS4

And connected the Uno to the powered on PS4

Then I starts Gimx-launcher, it looks like this (https://imgur.com/kU0ciRU). When I press "Check" it returns "This config seems OK!".
Then I press "Start" and get this (https://imgur.com/Y5Fqa5N).


But when I press PS button mapped on the wheel nothing happens. Looking at the log file, it seems like the adapter is detecting the PS button press on the wheel, but for some reason the command isn't being sent to the PS4.

The log file link is https://pastebin.com/4225SP7Z and i'm using the default G27 to G29 config file.

I already tried different cables between the UNO and the PS4, but haven't got any different result. I know that using a UNO isn't "supported", but i just can't see where's the error on my config.

gimx-launcher 7.8 x86_64
PS4 software 5.56

Hello,

Arduino Uno is Atmega328 chip and it's not supported. You need to use Atmega32u4 chip to make it work.

"Not supported" in this case means "not working"

I removed the Atmega328 chip as suggested in this post: viewtopic.php?t=1592

But I think that it would be wiser to just try other piece of kit.

Thanks for the responses.

This is very old post. I think the best idea would be to just buy something at Atmega32u4. We supported Atmega328 long ago but there were too many problems with it so we're supporting only one chip now.

Arduino uno r3 also has an Atmega16U2 (used as a serial adapter). But as said on the wiki there are known issues with non-atmega32u4 chips.
