Title: Ps5 works with XIM using DS2z
Post by: Ychyno on 11:36 AM - 11/12/20
I can confirm that it works, plug and play, just make sure you are switched to cable connection only on the ps5. Havenít checked the new controller but I doubt it will work since itís got a different chip. Iím playing apex legends just like I did with my old ps4 and it feels super smooth, even better at locked 60FPS.

It works for me using a ps4 controller on ps5 when you switch to USB instead of bluetooth. You can play any non ps5 game without any issues so far. It also works on series x, with my xbox one x controller. Although I think all games are compatible with the old controllers. The only difference is the capture button on new xbox controllers

It doesn't work with PS5 using a DS5. We are looking into it and will need time.

For PS4 games on PS5, a DualShock 4 controller will work with XIM APEX and probably XIM 4.

For PS5 games on PS5, a DualSense controller is not yet supported on XIM APEX. You'll need a specialty PS4 controller (e.g. Hori Mini or Nacon Compact), or a Titan Two.

From what I know, XIM 4 will not receive a PS5 update due to memory limitations of the device (it's already maxed). Again, Titan Two may be the solution.

I've just got a PS5 and will run some tests with XIM APEX and XIM 4 when time permits.

It works fine on ps5 with my PS4 controller but I have no sound when my headset is connected to the controller. Anyone else? When I disconnect the cable from the controller I can then hear sound.

Controller audio only works on a DS4 V2. DS4 V1 doesn't support audio over USB.

Iíve just bought a DS4 V2 and everything works but still no audio when I connect my headset to controller. Any ideas?

From memory, XIM 4 doesn't support audio passthrough. You need a XIM APEX for that.

It works with a Titan Two. Attach the DualShock 4, mouse & keyboard to XIM 4. Connect XIM 4 to Titan Two INPUT-A. Connect the authentication controller (e.g Nacon Compact) to Titan Two INPUT-B.

I guess I just wasted £50 on a v2 controller. You could have mentioned that when you said a v2 was needed!

Yes, I think so

I answered what you asked, you only have yourself to blame.

You should have asked a different question like "Does PS4 controller audio work on XIM 4?" rather than "Do you get sound when headphones in PS4 controller?", which is the question I answered.

XIM 4 hasn't been made since APEX launched 3 or so years ago, so you've had your's for awhile. Surely in the 8 years or so since XIM 4 was made, you could have taken the time to find out this information for yourself.

We are in the Xim4 channel, asking about audio and controllers. I thought someone with your experience and posts would understand that. Answering questions in isolation without understanding context isnít helpful. Anyway, lesson learned. What for one of the great MODs to answer.

Or ask a better question.

Or ignore people that think Ď Controller audio only works on a DS4 V2í assumes you are using apex in a xim4 channel.

Next time just mention that you use a XIM4 in your post, 99% of the posts in this forum are Apex based and not everyone might check the sub forum a topic has been posted in when browsing the "most recent posts" tab.
It sucks that you have now spent money on a controller you dont need but fully blaming antithesis on that is not fair, you could have done a lot from your side too to avoid this from happening.

Either way if you are EU based you should have a 30 day return policy on your controller purchase to get your money back :).

In the end itís down to me to evaluate the info given whether itís from from a new member or experienced one.

I got my refund 🤗

Awesome to hear man! :)

What you can use as a workaround is to connect a cheap USB Soundcard to the PS and plug your headset to the soundcard instead. Its a great and affordable alternative to using the audio port of the controller.
