GIMX Adaptor information

The Gimx adaptor is an adaptor which is used to make controllers/wheels compatible to different gaming consoles and PC.

 

The Gimx is a DIY adaptor but can also be bought completely assembeled for 30€ at the official Shop at https://blog.gimx.fr/

 

What you need is the adaptor, the Gimx Software,Firmware files, Gimx Loader Tool (When you use the official Adaptor from the shop) and the Logitech Gaming Software (When you want to Emulate the G27 on a PC):

You also need a computer to run the Gimx Software or you can also use a Rasperry Pi with Ubuntu.

 

I personally use an old Samsung Netbook with Windows 10 64 Bit.

 

 

I will cover here two scenarios.

- Using Gimx Adaptor to use any PC compatible Racing Wheel via emulating a G27 on a PC

- Using Gimx Adaptor to use any PC compatible Racing Wheel via emulating a G29 on a PS4

 

General:

- Install the Gimx Software on your computer. 

- Extrakt the Firmware files

- Extract the Gimx Loader file

 

Flashing the GIMX Adaptor:

In the extracted Firmware files look out for a folder called EMUG29PS4 (When you want to use it with your PS4) or EMUG27PC (When you want to use it with your PC).

From this folder copy the file "atmega32u4.hex" to the gimx loader folder.

 

Info: the official Gimx adaptor uses an Atmel Mega 32u4 chip. If you use another board and chip then you have to choose the right file for your board.

 

Start the gimx loader ("loader.exe"). Follow the instructions and the Firmware will be flashed to the Gimx adaptor.
