They reversed engineered the Tuact Venom X, not us.

oh, but still, couldn't someone just take whatever code they used to work with the Switch and modify it to work with the xim4?

I doubt they post their hard-earned code on github so others can easily develop competing products...

Hey all I know this thread has gone a little silent. However, wanted to let everyone know I have XIM4 up and running on my Switch using the Brooks Adapter (http://www.brookaccessory.com/detail/01745934/). Also confirming analog movement works. Just been fine tuning my translator profile to feel more fluid.

Right now for Splatoons 2 the Evolve ST seems the best. Anywho, wanted to let people know it works so they can give it a try themselves. Would like to see others suggestions and profiles for other switch games. So I am donít have to mess around to much finding the best setup.

Cool, thanks for the info. So you're using the XB->Switch adapter that you linked, right? Not the PS->Switch adapter?

Works pretty good. Only problem Iíve found is finding the right ST to start with to setup a game profile. I feel like Splatoons has a weird look mechanic that would need the trainer to get perfect. But Iíve found one in the evolve st I can live with and it feels almost like it were natively supported.

I think the only downside to this setup is that we donít have specific ST support for the games on Nintendo so your left with finding the best fit for purpose ST you can find. I am hoping others will try out so we can help each other find the optimum ST to work with while XIM determines whether or not to officially support the Switch. But until more shooters get announced for the Switch I can understand it being low/non priority.

just making sure, so you just set up the xim like normal but connect the brooks adapter to the switch and the xim cable to said adapter

I first paired the XBOX controller per the instructions that came with the Brooks adapter then I plugged everything back into the XIM how I would normally use it for the Xbox except I plugged the USB into the Brooks adapter. Works great. You need to get the initial pairing done with the controller for it to work I think.

I use XIM4 for XBOX so I bought the XBOX adapter. I would think it would have the same results for those with a PS4 setup wanting to use XIM on their switch as well. But I can't test and don't know if it works with the XIM PS controller setup. Would need someone else to test and confirm. I can only confirm it works with the XBOX controller XIM setup.

With Doom and Wolfenstein coming to the Switch, you have no more excuse not to release XIM 4 on it now...

I agree, the number of games coming to the switch that would benefit from the use of XIM is looking promising.

Could you try and sound a little more entitled?  I don't think your post was demanding enough.  :v
