PS4 not detecting controller / GIMX not sending signal

Post by flickkk » Fri Nov 09, 2018 2:47 pm

Hi, I built my own adapter with ATMEGA 32u4 and CP2102 adapter (https://allegro.pl/arduino-pro-micro-at ... 82556.html and https://allegro.pl/konwerter-usb-to-ttl ... 00068.html), when I turn on PS4 controller and connect it to PS4 (via BT) and then plug in to PC it only detects touchbar, if it's turned off and connected with USB PC detects something, GIMX gets every movement but game doesn't detect controller. I am adding two videos (log is for second one).

GIMX adapter built by me: ATMEGA 32u4 + CP2102, firmware from GIMX installer (installation without any problem), gaming target = PS4 Slim, games: Black Ops 4/Overwatch (doesn't work anywhere, just doesn't detect it as controller), original DualShock 4 controller.

I notice something:
- You didn't turn off your Dualshock 4 before start GIMX.
- You installed GIMX x86 on 64bit Windows.
- Remove check mark on Multiple Mice and Keyboards from gimx-config / advanced
