Grifta x-input(xbox 360) mode not working at all
« on: 07:28 AM - 04/21/17 »
Currently I cannot use d-input mode with the grifta as it binds the left trigger to the right stick. I believe x-input mode would work if the xim4 could recognize it as a third party xbox 360 controller, but it doesn't register at all. When connected in x-input(green) mode all I see is a blank box like nothing is connected in the xim manager.

How do I get the xim4 to detect the grifta in x-input mode or how do I remap the left trigger away from the right stick in d-input mode?

OBsIV I think he means the issue in D-input mode where pressing the trigger button causes you to look downwards as though you were pressing the analog stick down. This was mentioned in the other Grifta thread and basically Paul from Grifta has been saying that he would be in contact with you to try and fix the issue?

Yes I am using 20170103 and while in x-input mode on the grifta the xim4 does not detect the controller.

No I am not talking about paul fixing d-input mode with the xim team.

When plugged into a windows 10 PC the grifta in x-input mode has the trigger mapped correctly.

Adding the x-input mode on the grifta as an alias third party xbox controller for the xim4 should fix it.

Ok we will look. What I don't understand is DInput worked before. I wonder if something changed Grifta-side in this retail units.

I think there is some confusion.

D-input and keyboard mode both work with XIM4. It's just that when you are in D-input mode, the trigger button is not functioning as a button press but rather as downwards Y-axis joystick movement (so you press the trigger and your character on screen just aims directly down at the ground). So D-input mode is working but it causes the trigger button to be pretty much useless.

This trigger button functions fine on keyboard mode. Only reason I would prefer using D-input mode over the keyboard mode is that the joystick in D-input mode is sensitive to how much you are pressing the joystick in a certain direction. In keyboard mode, pushing the joystick in any direction results in a full movement in that direction (just as it would pressing WASD keys on a keyboard) which makes using a analog joystick kind of useless.

no confusion. x-input mode does not work at all. in addition to the trigger on d-input mode being bound to mouse move down. if x-input is supported the trigger is bound to the correct input (tested in windows 10)

While in keyboard only mode, the analog thumbstick functions the same as a simple 4way pad which is VERY limited movement.

this shows the correct bindings for each input type

XInput is 360 controller emulation. It won't work (as cross console) if it's not 100% compatible.

I had a faulty unit due to range issue (suspected faulty wireless dongle which is being replaced), but the Dinput issue was one that occurred for me also. Would be good to get it sorted as the Grifta does have some promise.

Hmmm, Paul's track record with promises on Kickstarter leads me to think otherwise...
