Moza R9 no FFB

Post by kacklappen23 »

Hi, I already had a more detailed description written up but it signed me out after I hit submit so this one's a bit shorter.

I built my own GIMX a while ago and used it to connect my T300 with various other peripherals (different pedals, shifter, wheels) to everything from a PS3 to PS5 (PS5 with extra drivehub ofc). I recently upgraded the wheelbase to a Moza R9 which seems to be incompatible with GIMX, I get steering but no FFB.

I also followed the DirectInput section of the wiki, bc I'm pretty sure that's were the problem lies:

No, none of the effects did anything.

I really hope I just missed something and it can be made to work without much hassle but I doubt it. I do I do hope this base gets support added in the future, if you need any info or tester for that I'll be glad to help.

I kept on tinkering with this and it still doesn't want to work with my new base. I thought it might be the Moza software/driver only allowing certain applications to use the FFB at one point but then I tried the "iRacing Force Feedback Test 1.72" software, also called "Wheelcheck", and it was able to interact with my wheelbase. So it definitely seems to be a GIMX-side problem. Here's the API Monitor capture if it helps, or if anyone cares: (https://puu.sh/J2XlF/9e73fd8adf.apmx86).

You can try this, save the following texts as a reg file, and then run it. I think it tries to emulate the ID of some logitech wheel by doing this. It works for me on PS3 GT6.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_346e&PID_0002]
"OEMData"=hex:43,00,88,01,fe,00,00,00
"OEMName"="MOZA R9 Base"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_346e&PID_0002]
"OEMData"=hex:43,00,88,01,fe,00,00,00
"OEMName"="MOZA R9 Base"

To restore the original values, try the following:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_346e&PID_0002]
"OEMData"=hex:03,00,88,11,80,00,00,00
"OEMName"="MOZA R9 Base"
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\MediaProperties\PrivateProperties\Joystick\OEM\VID_346e&PID_0002]
"OEMData"=hex:03,00,88,11,80,00,00,00
"OEMName"="MOZA R9 Base"
