KBsim Gladiator MK2 Not working !!

Postby chos3n_man » Tue Jan 09, 2018 18:58

KBsim Gladiator MK2
Default firmware (I believe)

Hi all,

After Trying to change my profile and update my firmware my Joystick can't be detected and won't turn on now lights nothing.

I have tried using the Button tester and nothing, WIZZO dose not detect joystick ever, I am wondering if there is a way to troubleshoot or set Default settings.

Thanks

http://ftp.vkb-sim.pro/Programms/ZBootloader-C.zip
Try to download and launch. This is firmware upgrade utility. I think you have tried to update firmware without it. Controller was switched to upgradeable state. So it can not be found with WIZZO or other standard software. Zbootloader-C.exe must be saved in the same folder with WIZZO executable to be launched automatically.
After you launch zbootloader.exe you can complete upgrading or reset your joystick, pressing Reset button.

So I give it a go and both applications (WIZZO and Zbootloader) are in the same folder, When i load Zbootloader it says on top Device not ready, I try to hit reset and i get this error;

error write data: 46679544

not sure what to do !!

I've also noticed that my PC no longer recognises the Joystick when in USB.

"Device not ready" - close the WIZZO! WIZZO blocked the joystick and ZBootloader can not update the FW!
Run only ZBootloader. All another applications must be closed!

The things is I’ve tried all that however zvootloader just gives me error coders or says device not ready.

Main point to note is that the usb device is no longer recognised as gladiator it comes up with Joy32 or something like that off top of my head, sorry not near Pc right this moment. Also to that after my first three attempts at doing this the Red and Green lights have stayed off and no longer come on, all I get is a flicker from green when plugged in. Really don’t know what to do next ?

So finally resolved the problem, I had to disconnect my ROCCAT Sova Keyboard witch then aloud me to update the firmware and brought the joystick back online.
