Wiimote rumble effect and Model2 emulator
« on: February 15, 2019, 10:24:42 am »
I am currently using wiimote to play Daytona USA in Model2 Emulator.  I got the wiimote work with GlovePIE + PPjoy. 


Everything works except the rumble effect.   Is there way to get it working? (EnableFF=1 in EMULATOR.INI  <-doesn't seems to do anything)


Here's my GlovePIE script:
Quote
//debug = 'RawX: ' + Wiimote.RawForceX + ' RawZ: ' + Wiimote.RawForceZ // Type your script here, or click the GUI tab to autogenerate it!
debug = 'RawX: ' + wiimote.SmoothPitch + ' RawZ: ' + Wiimote.RawForceZ
//Steering wheel

ppjoy.Analog0 = smooth(removeunits(maprange(wiimote.SmoothPitch, -50, 50, -1, 1)))


ppjoy1.Digital6 = Wiimote1.Up
PPJoy1.Digital4 = Wiimote1.Left
PPJoy1.Digital1 = Wiimote1.Right
ppjoy1.Digital14 = Wiimote1.Down
PPJoy1.Digital0 = Wiimote.1
ppjoy1.Digital7 = Wiimote.2
Key.Escape = Wiimote.home
ppjoy1.Digital12 = Wiimote.Minus
ppjoy1.Digital10 = Wiimote.Plus

ppjoy1.Digital15 = wiimote.A
ppjoy1.Digital13 = wiimote.B



var.ButtonFreezeTime = 250ms
var.PointerBump = KeepDown(Pressed(wiimote.A),var.ButtonFreezeTime) or KeepDown(Pressed(wiimote.B),var.ButtonFreezeTime)
Wiimote.Led1 = true

// Mouse movement
if wiimote.PointerVisible but not var.PointerBump then
  mouse.x = wiimote.PointerX
  mouse.y = wiimote.PointerY
end if

GlovePie/ppjoy doesn't magically turn a wiimote into a device that supports force feedback.  That script doesn't mention rumble anywhere either.  Even if it did, Model 2 supports force feedback, not rumble.  There is a difference.

Howard, on this regard, would it be possible with an external software (who said mamehooker!) to turn those force feedback outputs into simpler on/off messages for rumble? Obviously only some of those should be translated (wall/car crash and offroad comes to my mind)

I think Model2 emulator does support rumble but only to "xinput" (xbox controller)

I know the command to rumble the wiimote but don't know how to map to PPjoy.

ppjoy doesn't support force feedback xinput or ect or any kind, so you can't do it.... at least not with glovepie.


To answer baritonomarchetto's question, it might be possible, but I don't know if it would be worth it.  Whatever is sent to xinput would have to be active even without a gamepad present (which might require mapping controls via one of hte virtual xbox 360 drivers out there) and then troubleshooter 2 would have to be an intermediate to read the memory locations and pass it along to mamehooker.  Even then it's just the effects model 2 emu made up, so they can be kind of meh.    I've been wanting to modify one of the open source xinput drivers to send xinput rumble to mamehooker forever but I never seem to get around to it.

Reading memory locations for sure is the best method, but needs a per-game settings I suppose.
I was thinking to something more bovine, a sort of "filter" able to discern from a pure FF signal (i.e. the one that activate the wheel resistance while tuning when raceing on track, constant signal) from a "crash" signal (pulsed). I don't know what the structure of FF signals is, so I cannot comment more on this, just trying to share my poor idea :D .
