Title: XIM 1 questions
Post by: 4shotter on 03:29 PM - 08/03/08
Well since i'm waiting until the prebuilt xim2s are released, I decided to buy an xim 1 for the time being so I have something to mess around with.  I have questions though.


thanks.

Any XFPS will work, but, the cheaper the better.

No, the play and charge kit isn't a USB active device (it's only power). You'll need to buy a wired controller. Any wired controller will work, but, if you plan on modding it later, make sure to get an official MS wired revision 005.

Alright thanks man.  I plan on buying a prebuilt xim2 so i'll just go buy any random wired for now.  ;D ;D

Ok, I'm pretty sure you can use cheaper 3rd party wired controllers.

I recall the first three versions of the XFPS (360, Pro, 3.0 Sniper) needed the -007 version of Microsoft's controllers to work. Some MadCatz worked with them as well, but the only model that I can confirm working with the XFPS 3.0 Sniper is the Steelers version of their NFL controllers. I'm not sure if XCM made revisions to the XFPS that would allow compatibility with Microsoft's -005 controllers prior to the release of the 3.0 Sniper Plus.

Don't know if this would work or not but I just though of this.  Couldn't I use my guitar hero controller and plug it into the xfps instead of a controller? 

Also how bad is the delay with xfps and xim on halo 3?  When you click fire, does it fire right away?

I think you can use the guitar but you need to unplug it once it goes past the security and lights up player 1 spot. There is no delay that you will notice.
