Re: Will GIMX work on PS5?

hi there, i'm new here... checked the thread but have not found anything about it... still, sorry if i overlooked sth:

besides racing i play fighting games and there we have similar issues when using ps4 arcade sticks regarding ps5 compatability.

for example i play on a hori fighting edge stick. sony confirmed officially ps4 licensed sticks will still work with ps5 games on ps5. i tested this out myself with guilty gear strive (released 11.06.21) and king of fighters 15 (released 14.02.2022). both work flawlessly.

also there is a manufacturer called brooks who made a universal pcb for a variety of consoles (ps5 not included at first). they also made an addon to their pcb which does enable ps5 support https://www.brookaccessory.com/detail/12408031/ .

i'm sure getting a wheel / ffb to work is harder than a stick and i don't know if you are already aware of this or if it could in any way help with the issues you are facing as well.

Having issues with my hori not being detected, already posted in support but for people who've got things running is there a step I'm missing with the sequence of things being connected ect?

Will I need an original ds4 instead? Eager to get my simucube 2 pro / sprints working, so would especially love to hear from anyone with that combo successfully working.


Turns out once I got a DS4 and connected that to the pc with the hori in the drivehub everything works as it should, I've now configured the controls and it's been just fine. :)

Hello. Any update about using racing wheel on PS5 using Gimx? With GT7 released I am sharing the supported wheels
I owned an old Logitech wheel EX, and it would be great to use this on my PS5

AFAIK currently there is a way to get gimx working with GT7, you need drivehub and it's not officially supported but people are saying it's working - viewtopic.php?t=3982

Although it is Japanese, it summarizes how to use Simucube 2 on PS5 using GIMX and DriveHub.
I hope it will be helpful in automatic translation.

OK, the Japanese guide gives me what I need, now I understand why I will need the Hori controller AND Drivehub.

Hi there,

Some time has passed and it seems there is no progress on this topic.
Sorry to ask again, but why GIMX developpers don't implement GIMX + Hori support now, while we wait for a better solution.
If drivehub + hori is possible, it should be possible GIMX + hori , I think.
