Use PS3 compatible racing wheels or mouse and keyboard on PS4/Xbox One

Discussion in 'General Game / Hardware Discussion' started by runcorn, Oct 28, 2016.

  1. Not sure if anyone is interested in this but I thought I would post it anyway.

    This is a method to use wheels like the G27 on PS4/Xbox One or use a mouse and keyboard.

    The device cost me £9.48 in parts from ebay. There is no need for any soldering skills as the board I used comes with the headers already soldered. Building consists of connecting the wires to each device.

    Parts needed for PS4
    Arduino Leonardo board - http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/161861882335
    CP2102 module serial converter http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/162176973603
    A PC/laptop/Raspberry pi

    Software
    GIMX - www.gimx.fr

    Instuctions for putting together the device and installing are here https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=DIY_USB_adapter

    I have used a g27 wheel with driveclub and it works perfectly. I have also tried a mouse and keyboard with BF1 and it seems to be working well although I will need to tweak the sensitivity a bit.

    Good luck if you decide to try building one of these. I can add more detailed pics if anyone wants them. If anyone has any questions then feel free to ask.

  2. Ooh Runcorn's invention corner. I like this

    Just a thought but would this able to do a HOTAS setup on console as well?
     
  3. Thought I would write an idiots guide, I know that I could have done with one :) As ever if anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

    Installation instructions


    Required software
    1. Download Required software listed above
    2. Put parts together – Connect the wires as follows CP2102 TXD to Leonardo RX1 second pin on board. CP2102 RXD to Leonardo TX0 First pin on the board. CP2102 GND to any Leonardo GRD I used the 4th Pin.
    3. Install Arduino Drivers by right clicking on arduino.inf and choosing install

    • Click on the com port for the Leonardo in the above example mine was COM 5
    • It should display three circles showing memory usage if done correctly.
    5. Unplug the device from the computer
    6. Connect a usb cable from the PS4 into the Arduino mini usb
    7. Connect the C2102 end of the device into a PC
    8. Connect a PS4 controller to the PC by USB.
    9. Start up the PS4
    10. Run the GIMX software and choose a profile then press start.

    11. The program disables mouse and keyboard on the PC to exit the program press Shift+Escape

    Don't think that I have missed out any steps but I probably have. Tried to format this but got bored halfway through so the post may look a mess.​

  4. That's cracking work there mate
     
  5. Thanks @ODB

    Have now put the device in a temporary project box (old laptop adapter power brick) to protect it until I manage to get a more permanent home for it. I held the USB cords with some velcro tape.
