Title: XIM APEX BETA [Firmware 20201215] [Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5] (**LATEST**)
Post by: OBsIV on 01:19 PM - 12/16/20
This BETA firmware enables:
● Support for Xbox Series X/S controllers on both Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles.
● Support for PlayStation 5 through a limited set of PlayStation 4 3rd party controllers.

Xbox Series X/S Requirements
Xbox has released a patch to address the spontaneous console shutdowns experienced by various community members. This Beta drop is designed to work with this new update. You may need to force your Xbox to download the update:

Go to Settings on your Xbox Series X/S, then, System and then Updates and make sure you are current.

When creating Configs for your Xbox Series X/S, select Xbox One in Manager as the console.

PlayStation 5 Requirements
Unlike support for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 where you use a DS4 and DS3 respectively as your console controller on your XIM APEX, PlayStation 5 support requires the use of specific 3rd party PlayStation 4 controllers (not a DS5, DS4, or DS3 controller).

Most PS4 3rd party controller should work, however, the following controllers have been tested and known to work (remember to plug into port "..." on your hub):

@play Wired Compact
Horipad 4 FPS
Hori Fighting Commander
Hori Mini Gamepad (*)
Mad Catz SFV Arcade Fightstick Alpha
Nacon Pro Revolution V1/2/3
Razer Raiju
Vivitar LVLUP Gaming


(*) May require the controller be connected to your hub after your XIM has been connected to your console in order for initialization to occur.

If you try a different 3rd party controller, please let us know how it works so we can keep this list current. We will work to add support for non-functioning 3rd party controllers if we can.

When creating Configs for your PlayStation 5, select PlayStation 4 in Manager as the console.

FEEDBACK: Please help us test this new support and provide feedback here (even if you are gaming on an Xbox One or PlayStation 4).

You can use any version of Manager with this firmware build.

As per your last comment ObsIV:

The concern I have specifically for the Nav is that if the devices you are using aren't seen and initialized in the correct order, your XIM may think you are running on a PS3 if it sees your Nav first (because the Nav is identical from the USB perspective as a DualShock 3). This is why I was wondering if any of these initialization issues happen if you don't have the Nav plugged in at start up.

_________________

That makes alot of sense - I can try to find something in my Attic - would it be helpful that if I notice that issue to also remove the Nav from the equation (unplug it), then unplug the XIM and plug it back in with just the Mouse and Controller to see if the Controller powers on? Would that eliminate the NAV from this equation?

Sorry for locking that last topic on you. Yes, it would help a lot to know if you are seeing these initialization issues when you don't have that Nav plugged in at startup. This would tell us if the issue really is that your XIM APEX is assuming you are on a PS3.

yes it does, i値l try it out in a bit. The main problem that i am seeing is that the movement feels very janky. It looks like it resets to a certain position, it may be just the controller or a problem that some may experience. I知 going to charge the controller and see if that solves the problem. I値l record a video if you want to see what i知 trying to explain in terms of the controller movement.

The janky movement is using the controller directly or with a keyboard or other input device?

Strangely, the Wired Hori Mini Gamepad did not work at first. I tried various configurations, but nothing worked. Then, all of a sudden the sound of the PS5 went off like a new connection was made and it has been working for about an hour now.

Hori Fighting Stick Mini is not working, on the PS5 login menu you can see it authenticates for a second and then the XIM starts flashing yellow.

Im using Hori pad mini and if it is connected through the usb hub to the Apex, it will work only if it is connected after Apex is already on. If the pad is on the usb hub when Apex powers on, it will not be recognized, it does not even show up in the manager.

However if the pad is connected directly to Apex without the hub, it will work either way.

Is this intended behavior?

Could it be a powerdraw issue? What if you remove the keyboard, does it work then for the mouse?

So you plug the apex first then the gamepad on the hub to make it work? If yes do you have to do this everytime the console turns on? Do you have to unplug and plug again in the same order everytime?

Yes, every time Apex powers on. Not sure if it would work without this, if you would keep the xim setup powered on when the console is off.

Those having initialization issues. Can you try plugging your 3rd party controller directly into your XIM APEX (no hub) and tell us if things initialize correctly (i.e. you get the green init lights)?

Yeah it authenticates fine and no yellow lights when the Hori fighting stick mini is connected directly to XIM.

Ok. You are plugging this into port 3 of your hub and what else do you have plugged into your hub?

Anyone tried the - PowerA Wired Controller for Nintendo Switch???

I have this controller, but I'm afraid to flash my Apex with a beta build...

It needs to be a licensed 3rd party PS4 controller.

And, you shouldn't worry about installing a Beta. You can always install the last retail build if you want to revert back (http://xim.tech/latest).

That makes alot of sense - I can try to find something in my Attic - would it be helpful that if I notice that issue to also remove the Nav from the equation (unplug it), then unplug the XIM and plug it back in with just the Mouse and Controller to see if the Controller powers on? Would that eliminate the NAV from this equation?

Sorry for locking that last topic on you. Yes, it would help a lot to know if you are seeing these initialization issues when you don't have that Nav plugged in at startup. This would tell us if the issue really is that your XIM APEX is assuming you are on a PS3.

OBsIV - I was able to test and off the bat the Xbox Series X controller didnt start or light up. I removed the Sony Nav Controller, unplugged the XIM (with only my controller and Mouse), plugged it back in and the controller worked and light up. I could control the console using the controller from the XIM.

I then plugged in the Sony Nav and it was recognized and was sending signals from the XIM. The mouse didnt work though even though it was recognized. So I had to unplug and plug that back in as well.

So I think your theory might be correct. I can continue to test, but you might be on to something. The Sony Nav could be causing the Xbox Controller to never initialize. It is strange that the Mouse doesnt work in some tests.

To clarify: I did test a hand full of times - and almost every time I connect the XIM with the Sony Nav now with the Xbox Series X controller - it doesnt initialize correctly. Everytime, I removed the Sony Nav and unplug / replug in the XIM it recognized the Series X controller. In some cases the mouse still worked before and after, in other cases it didnt work before and after, unless I unplugged and replugged the mouse back in.

It definitely seems like a initiation issue. It may be some devices are affecting the Series X controller from being recognized correctly. It probably works fine for anyone with a standard Keyboard. But if you go off the beaten path in some cases - like the Sony Nav - it doesnt always work. It seems to be happening most times now. I tested 5 times unplugging the Xim completely with everything attached and all 5 times it didnt initialize the controller. I had to remove the Nav and start again and plug it in after it initializes. The only randomness with the Mouse being recognized. But that is probably because something bad happened with the initialization routine.

Yes, what's going on is your XIM is getting confused and setting your Nav first and thinking you are on a PS3. Are you using the hub that comes with your XIM APEX? Did you also say that this doesn't happen when you are using an Xbox One controller?

Im using Hori pad mini and if it is connected through the usb hub to the Apex, it will work only if it is connected after Apex is already on. If the pad is on the usb hub when Apex powers on, it will not be recognized, it does not even show up in the manager.

However if the pad is connected directly to Apex without the hub, it will work either way.

Is this intended behavior?
@OBsIV
Is there a way to avoid this?

I am using the same setup and having the same issue ... resolves itself by unplugging and plugging the Hori back in after the PS5 has been restarted or boots from Rest Mode. I am using the hub that came with the XIM and yes, plugging it into the "..." port.

I posted earlier about the Hori not working at first, then randomly working ... but this is why it seemed random, because I just happened to be trying different ports and plugged the Hori into the "..." port after the keyboard and mouse were already plugged in. If it makes a difference, I am using a Durgod HK Venus keyboard and a Logitech G502 Lightspeed wireless mouse.

Cheers, and thanks for all the hard work.

No problem!

I've just tried using a powered USB Hub to check if it somehow was a powerdraw issue, but I still get the yellow lights.

EDIT:

So I've noticed with the Hori Fighting Stick plugged directly into the XIM, It authenticates fine with no yellow lights, but none of the inputs seem to be registering.

It shows up as a "Fighting Stick Mini 4 kai" on XIM Manager.

I have a Hori mini gamepad, and when plugged into the hub that comes with the xim apex, it doesn't seem to connect or register. When I plug it in directly into the Xim Apex, it is recognized and it works. I have power running to the hub that comes with the apex also. When plugging my hori into the hub, I have it plugged into port "..."

UPDATE:
I got it working by unplugging the gamepad from port "..." and then plugging it into port "..". It was also working now after plugging it into port "..." after doing that initial swapping around of ports.

Ok, so after quite a bit of testing, this is what I have discovered. The order in which I plug in devices matters. I plug in my Xim Apex into the console, and let it initialize. Then I plug in the hub. Then I plug in my hori mini gamepad, and then have to unplug it, and then plug it back in before it is recognized/usable. Then I plug in my nav and mouse. If I do things in that order, it works for me.

This BETA firmware enables:
● Support for Xbox Series X/S controllers on both Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One consoles.
● Support for PlayStation 5 through a limited set of PlayStation 4 3rd party controllers.

Xbox Series X/S Requirements
Xbox has released a patch to address the spontaneous console shutdowns experienced by various community members. This Beta drop is designed to work with this new update. You may need to force your Xbox to download the update:

Go to Settings on your Xbox Series X/S, then, System and then Updates and make sure you are current.

When creating Configs for your Xbox Series X/S, select Xbox One in Manager as the console.

PlayStation 5 Requirements
Unlike support for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 where you use a DS4 and DS3 respectively as your console controller on your XIM APEX, PlayStation 5 support requires the use of specific 3rd party PlayStation 4 controllers (not a DS5, DS4, or DS3 controller).

Any PS4 3rd party controller should work, however, the following controllers have been tested and known to work (remember to plug into port "..." on your hub):

Astro C40
Horipad 4 FPS
Hori Mini Gamepad
Mad Catz SFV Arcade Fightstick Alpha
Nacon Pro Controller V3
Razer Raiju
Scuf Vantage 1
Scuf Vantage 2


If you try a different 3rd party controller, please let us know how it works so we can keep this list current. We will work to add support for non-functioning 3rd party controllers if we can.

When creating Configs for your PlayStation 5, select PlayStation 4 in Manager as the console.

FEEDBACK: Please help us test this new support and provide feedback here (even if you are gaming on an Xbox One or PlayStation 4).

You can use any version of Manager with this firmware build.

@play PlayStation 4 Wired Compact Controller connected fine.

Trying it with Fortnite and the mouse aim is way off. There is a lot of aim acceleration and pretty much zero micro movements are registering. I can move my mouse slowly across the whole mouse pad without my aim moving. Is this an ST issue since it痴 using the PS4 ST on the PS5 game version. Or is it something else going on. Running 1000hz on both Xim and mouse. 4000dpi. Exact same settings that I used to use on PS4 for that and everything else.

Edit: Okay, had my in game deadzones wrong. Had them at default 24,27 instead of 12,12. Micro movement back and aim acceleration gone. Will have to give it some time actually in game to see how it feels overall though. Fingers crossed.

Although I'm very afraid to flash firmwares, I did it and I'm back here just to confirm the "PowerA Wired Controller for Nintendo Switch" DOESN'T work, as it is not for Playstation, like OBsIV said.

I ordered a Hori Mini Wired Gamepad For PS4, should be here next week just before Christmas.

Thanks all for the hard work!!!

Anyone tried the - PowerA Wired Controller for Nintendo Switch???

I have this controller, but I'm afraid to flash my Apex with a beta build...

It needs to be a licensed 3rd party PS4 controller.

And, you shouldn't worry about installing a Beta. You can always install the last retail build if you want to revert back (http://xim.tech/latest).

Why it's running at Titan Two with Hori PS4 Fighting Stick Mini as authentication device and with XIM not? I thought it was the same bypass?!

Ok so I couldnt get the astro c40 to work like the xim wasnt recognizing it at all but I also have the ps4 hori tac pro which works great which I connect the keypad to "..." and my model O mouse to ".." and leave "." Port empty and it works great,even better in my case  as i dont need the controller plugged in the xim hub anymore

Just tested with Hori Fighting Commander pad and can confirm it works great with this beta firmware.

Can finally move over to the PS5 version of Destiny 2 and get some of those sweet extra frames :)

Im using Hori pad mini and if it is connected through the usb hub to the Apex, it will work only if it is connected after Apex is already on. If the pad is on the usb hub when Apex powers on, it will not be recognized, it does not even show up in the manager.

However if the pad is connected directly to Apex without the hub, it will work either way.

Is this intended behavior?

I had the same issue at first but I plugged the apex in first then the gamepad and it fixed it  ;D

Same here.


Remove hori mini from ( ... ) and reinsert and its fine.

OBsIV - I was able to test and off the bat the Xbox Series X controller didnt start or light up. I removed the Sony Nav Controller, unplugged the XIM (with only my controller and Mouse), plugged it back in and the controller worked and light up. I could control the console using the controller from the XIM.

I then plugged in the Sony Nav and it was recognized and was sending signals from the XIM. The mouse didnt work though even though it was recognized. So I had to unplug and plug that back in as well.

So I think your theory might be correct. I can continue to test, but you might be on to something. The Sony Nav could be causing the Xbox Controller to never initialize. It is strange that the Mouse doesnt work in some tests.

To clarify: I did test a hand full of times - and almost every time I connect the XIM with the Sony Nav now with the Xbox Series X controller - it doesnt initialize correctly. Everytime, I removed the Sony Nav and unplug / replug in the XIM it recognized the Series X controller. In some cases the mouse still worked before and after, in other cases it didnt work before and after, unless I unplugged and replugged the mouse back in.

It definitely seems like a initiation issue. It may be some devices are affecting the Series X controller from being recognized correctly. It probably works fine for anyone with a standard Keyboard. But if you go off the beaten path in some cases - like the Sony Nav - it doesnt always work. It seems to be happening most times now. I tested 5 times unplugging the Xim completely with everything attached and all 5 times it didnt initialize the controller. I had to remove the Nav and start again and plug it in after it initializes. The only randomness with the Mouse being recognized. But that is probably because something bad happened with the initialization routine.

Yes, what's going on is your XIM is getting confused and setting your Nav first and thinking you are on a PS3. Are you using the hub that comes with your XIM APEX? Did you also say that this doesn't happen when you are using an Xbox One controller?

OBsIV - I am using the hub that comes with the XIM Apex. It also happens with Xbox One controller - just slightly less often.

Talk about an investment that took time to mature... I bought a hori pad (from Japan!) when the ps4 first released as there was some hope on release that you could use it with the xim 4 on the ps4 before official support was implemented.  Needless to say, it didn't work and that controller has been gathering dust in my drawer for 7 years.  Then I see the new beta firmware for ps5 support and wondered; "hmmm, I wonder if that old Hori pad will work?"  Lo and behold, it does!  Woo hoo.  Now I don't feel so bad about spending so much on what has been a dust-collector for the past 7 years :).  Life is good.  Thank you OBsIV!!!

Just joined the forum today to thank you guys for the hard work and getting something working for us PS5 users!

Also I am confirming the Hori pad mini as working, however you must not have the controller plugged in when the XIM Apex powers up. You must plug it in after you plug in the Xim and it then detects just fine.

邸play PlayStation 4 wired compact controller working great. Gave it a good run last night. No problems with connecting at all. For me it was the same price as the hori mini. Both were $36aud, so another good affordable option along with the Hori by the looks of it.

Tested by playing Fortnite with G502 mouse and Sony navcon. 1000hz both Xim and mouse. 4000dpi. Had no problem connecting navcon and G502. All connected like it used to. No timeouts or disconnects etc.

Thanks Xim team for implementing this while continuing to work on dualsense support. I know it痴 not ideal, but for those that have a 3rd party controller already, or are willing to buy a cheap one, this is a great option in the 塗opefully short term.

I used the same controller as you, and encountered the same failure.
The purple light flashes randomly and the mouse becomes faster at the same time.
After trying the Beta firmware, I returned the official firmware and continued to use DS4 to play the PS4 version of COD

Using the vantage 1 wired/wireless version I知 getting the purple flashing lights.

this is what is happening with me too. At first it is normal but then it starts flashing purple and it stops again. 125hz seemed to solve the aiming problems but it hasn稚 removed the flashing purple notification.

Lvlup PS4 Controller works great. Cheap controller sold only at Walgreens.

Scuff Vantage 1 works for some moments then it starts flashing purple and aiming feels off and it gets a feeling of that of 125 hz. This polling rate problem is on the mouse side of things as it doesn't flash purple with my movement pad used alone. I only tried it at 500hz as I wouldn't want to use any other rates to begin with.

Maybe the Scuf Vantage is having some compatibility issues, it seems that other controllers are going smooth in terms of not having these purple flashing and aiming issues at higher polling rates. OBsIV if you see this, mind if your team can take a look on what is causing the problem.

Does it work with a scuf impact?

I don't think we've gotten a report on that yet.

Signed up to answer this. A Scuf Impact does NOT work. The PS5 recognizes the Impact as a Dualshock 4. It recognizes the Vantage as a "Controller." Not sure how it recognizes any of the others.

For what it's worth, the Vantage is not delivering good performance at all, at least in BO:CW. There's a lot of mouse stutter and strange acceleration issues happening for me. I do have a Razer Raiju, so I can test with that as well. That will tell me if it's the Vantage or the PS5 integration in general. Will report back.

EDIT: Played a couple games with the Raiju connected, and it's buttery smooth. So I think there's an issue with Vantage integration.

Is there anyone that doesn't need to plug in the Hori Mini Gamepad after startup to make it work?

Sometime it works without doing that.  its random for me.

imo, it's not a huge deal as you would only have to do it once per start up.   it's better than not having it working

Doing some more test,  I only have to unplug and plug back in if i power down my  usb hub.  Since my apex is plugged into a power hub. it stays on 24/7

I'm got both a Hori Fighting commander pad, and the Mad Catz SFV Arcade Fightstick Alpha, both work fine.

The only problem I've had so far is that I sometimes have to plug the xim in/out of the ps5 a few times for it to finally work. When it doesn't detect/work properly the xim has a pinkish white light on, if that means anything.

邸play PlayStation 4 wired compact controller working great. Gave it a good run last night. No problems with connecting at all. For me it was the same price as the hori mini. Both were $36aud, so another good affordable option along with the Hori by the looks of it.

Tested by playing Fortnite with G502 mouse and Sony navcon. 1000hz both Xim and mouse. 4000dpi. Had no problem connecting navcon and G502. All connected like it used to. No timeouts or disconnects etc.

Thanks Xim team for implementing this while continuing to work on dualsense support. I know it痴 not ideal, but for those that have a 3rd party controller already, or are willing to buy a cheap one, this is a great option in the 塗opefully short term.

So i have been putting this through a lot of testing and in the end i can run everything needed plus some.

Testing with the Hori mini pad ps4 i tested with/without titan 2 and xim link. All of it works together if you want to run it that way same way as it would on the ps4 just with the hori mini instead. Had to plug the mini pad into xim after it was powered on for the ps5 to recognize and work.

titan 2 into ps5
xim into input b of titan 2
plug hori mini into slot 1 of xim hub once both power up
start xim link on pc

I tested all of these with no disconnects for hours.

Hi I am having an audio skipping issue using my Scuf Vantage 2 headset port. Is there a fix for this? Or am I missing something?

it does that currently, the Scuf Vantage 1 and 2 currently has some compatibility issues. I believe that OBsIV is looking on what is causing the issues. The Scuf Vantage is causing purple flashing lights and aiming issues at higher polling rates.

i can confirm that the hori fighting stick mini 4 works.

https://stores.horiusa.com/fighting-stick-mini-4-for-playstation-4/

tried it with PS5 CODCW, PS5 R6S and PS4 CODMW/Warzone.

worked fine.

just remember to set the stick to PS4 mode and not PS3 (there's a 4/3 switch just above the L1 button).

i used a sony navcon and a logitech G402 in my setup.

https://streamable.com/u11n4h quick vid of it working.

edit: i've also noticed that if you have the dualsense turned on at the same time, the xim setup will not work. so make sure the dualsense is off.

Hi, I致e recently been playing Cold War with the XIM fully updated, as well as my Xbox Series X fully updated, but recently it痴 been turning off at random points like an hour of gameplay then it would turn off, or sometimes even two hours. I知 currently using a 1440p 165hz monitor but since it doesn稚 have hdmi 2.1 I知 running 1440p 60hz at the moment. Please let me know if anyone can help.

By the way, this only occurs when I知 using my XIM, I致e used my Xbox Series X without it and played almost 8 hours straight without any problems.

Ok thanks, it sounds like a timing issue with initialization. We will see what we can do. In the meantime, I'll update the notes.

Hi I am using a MAC on their latest software and tried to use the MAC download but when I tried to open the file I got a message saying that I could not open it due to Apple not being able to check for malicious software :/ anything I am doing wrong?

The Mac flash tool is signed using Apple's developer services. I'm not sure why it's saying that. I don't think widespread though since we generally don't hear about issues like this. Perhaps someone more familiar with details like this regarding Macs can comment and help.

If you are seeing purple lights, you should turn down the response rate. Do you have any purple lights at 125Hz? Purple lights mean timing issues which would cause audio issues like you have experienced.

If you are seeing purple lights, you should turn down the response rate. Do you have any purple lights at 125Hz? Purple lights mean timing issues which would cause audio issues like you have experienced.

Even lowering it back at 125hz, purple flashing still occurs. once in a while the controller will disconnect and i have to replug the XIM apex to fix it. The aiming issues are way more noticeable the higher the polling rate goes, at 125hz it has a minimal amount but it slowly increases the more you use it.

Here痴 a trace log if it痴 useful, hopefully these issues are possible to fix.

Hi, I致e recently been playing Cold War with the XIM fully updated, as well as my Xbox Series X fully updated, but recently it痴 been turning off at random points like an hour of gameplay then it would turn off, or sometimes even two hours. I知 currently using a 1440p 165hz monitor but since it doesn稚 have hdmi 2.1 I知 running 1440p 60hz at the moment. Please let me know if anyone can help.

By the way, this only occurs when I知 using my XIM, I致e used my Xbox Series X without it and played almost 8 hours straight without any problems.

Did you update your Xbox to the latest system update?


Yea did you read my thread? :/

i've also noticed that if you have the dualsense turned on at the same time, the xim setup will not work. so make sure the dualsense is off.

Interesting -- thanks for pointing that out.

no prob.

fyi, i have my xim apex setup all plugged in before i turn on my PS5 from the power button.

i turn on my navcon after.

xim setup will work normally with a hori fighting stick mini 4, with no 7 minute timeouts.

but the moment you turn on the dualsense, the xim setup and the hori stick will stop working. turning off the dualsense will not make the xim or stick start working.

you'd need to restart the PS5 to get the xim working again.

protip: don't turn on the dualsense!  :)

I know it痴 in the confirmed list, but it just want to confirm again that the Hori Fighting Commander works perfectly.  Updated the apex (my first time using it; I stuck with the 4 for years), plugged in the peripherals and it worked immediately.

hi do u try this method?(*) May require the controller be connected to your hub after your XIM has been connected to your console in order for initialization to occur.

Does it work if you connect the stick directly to the XIM without the Hub? Yellow lights can indicate a powerdraw issue (unless you have set your config colour to yellow).

If I connect the controller directly (no hub) there are no yellow lights, but when I press the controller buttons, the presses don't register while monitoring in the xim manager.

I also powered the xim hub with an adapter, but the xim still flashes yellow and won't recognize the hori fighting stick.

I use the Hori Mini Gamepad with Logitech G502 and X7 G100 keyboard.
I've got the problem that it connects for a short time but then disconnects. I plug the apex in, wait until the light at the hub light up and after 2 seconds I insert the Hori Mini Gamepad.

Maybe someone can help with the same configuration?

Hi I am having an audio skipping issue using my Scuf Vantage 2 headset port. Is there a fix for this? Or am I missing something?

it does that currently, the Scuf Vantage 1 and 2 currently has some compatibility issues. I believe that OBsIV is looking on what is causing the issues. The Scuf Vantage is causing purple flashing lights and aiming issues at higher polling rates.

If you are seeing purple lights, you should turn down the response rate. Do you have any purple lights at 125Hz? Purple lights mean timing issues which would cause audio issues like you have experienced.

Hi, at 125Hz, there are no purple lights, but audio issue from controller headset port still exists on Scuf Vantage 2.

nuType, Is your Scuf Vantage, the wired version or wired/wireless version. The purple flashes show up on the XIM Apex not the Scuf Vantage. Have you tried a higher polling rate and see if the purple lights appear there? If there aren稚 any purple lights on any of the polling rates on your XIM, that is interesting.

Hori PS 4 Mini Pad works , but I also got the problem that the Xim has to be powerd on
and then I can plug the Hori in and the Ps 5 recognize it.
After that I can plug in my Belkin Xim Link cabel to my PC and
Xim Link is  functioning.

Everything else is working great and I don't feel any difference between
the Ps 4 and Ps 5 Version of Rainbow with the same settings in Xim Manager.
Polling rate is 1000 and no flashing purple light.
So again thank you for this amazing update.

I tried at 250, 500, and 1000. no purple light but, audio issue still persist. I am not using a mouse and keyboard right now, just using the scuf vantage 2 to play through the xim apex.

If you are seeing purple lights, you should turn down the response rate. Do you have any purple lights at 125Hz? Purple lights mean timing issues which would cause audio issues like you have experienced.

Hi, at 125Hz, there are no purple lights, but audio issue from controller headset port still exists on Scuf Vantage 2.

nuType, Is your Scuf Vantage, the wired version or wired/wireless version. The purple flashes show up on the XIM Apex not the Scuf Vantage. Have you tried a higher polling rate and see if the purple lights appear there? If there aren稚 any purple lights on any of the polling rates on your XIM, that is interesting.

Hi, my scuf vantage 2 is the wired/wireless version. I tried higher polling rate, but there are no purple lights. I am not using a mouse and keyboard to play either maybe that's why we're not seeing purple lights, I am using the xim apex as an adapter to use the ps4 scuf to play my ps5 games.

that explains a lot. you aren稚 using a mouse and keyboard, you are using just the controller. I知 using the Scuf Vantage to let me play with MnK with the XIM. Your audio issues are caused because of timing issues with the Scuf Vantage. These timing issues are causing the audio cutouts you are experiencing and the aiming and polling rate issues for MnK users like myself.

So far what I am seeing is 鍍he XIM is able to recognize the Scuf Vantage but it is currently having timing issues which is causing the audio cutouts with it痴 headphone port and causing aiming problems each polling rate with MnK.

Hi, I致e recently been playing Cold War with the XIM fully updated, as well as my Xbox Series X fully updated, but recently it痴 been turning off at random points like an hour of gameplay then it would turn off, or sometimes even two hours. I知 currently using a 1440p 165hz monitor but since it doesn稚 have hdmi 2.1 I知 running 1440p 60hz at the moment. Please let me know if anyone can help.

By the way, this only occurs when I知 using my XIM, I致e used my Xbox Series X without it and played almost 8 hours straight without any problems.

Did you update your Xbox to the latest system update?

Yea did you read my thread? :/

Can you go back to this firmware and let us know if that fixes the problem for you? It would help a lot to know this: https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=90790.0




How am I supposed to downgrade?

i can confirm that the hori fighting stick mini 4 works.

https://stores.horiusa.com/fighting-stick-mini-4-for-playstation-4/

tried it with PS5 CODCW, PS5 R6S and PS4 CODMW/Warzone.

worked fine.

just remember to set the stick to PS4 mode and not PS3 (there's a 4/3 switch just above the L1 button).

i used a sony navcon and a logitech G402 in my setup.

https://streamable.com/u11n4h quick vid of it working.

edit: i've also noticed that if you have the dualsense turned on at the same time, the xim setup will not work. so make sure the dualsense is off.

How did you do this? I have a Fighting Mini Stick from Hori and it does'nt run! The XIM keeps flashing yellow. What's the problem?

Even with power supply on hub.

Make a backup on your Configs, and then use Factory Reset on the older firmware. Then, after it's done, use the flash tool to restore your Configs.

Not sure if this is related to the beta or even the XIM but since my series X has been turning itself on recently. I saw that there was recently a bug with Arctic headphones turning the console on which was just fixed but I don't own those. The only plugged in is the XIM and external hard drive. Is it possible the XIM is causing this?

Right now i'm testing this controller from Nacon. Trying to do my best, but it seems like it doesn't work.
I just updated the Xim Apex to the latest Firmware, plugged all in like in the picture down below but nothing happens.

It's been a long time, since I used the Xim Apex. Maybe I did something wrong by plugging in all cables?
The connection method is wired.
The console registers the Nacon Compact Controller as a headset when plugged in, don't know why...

It work perfect ... for about 8 minutes - then it'll stop responding any inputs. Xim Apex' led color doesn't change after that, it just stop all inputs and I have to reconnect the whole Xim Apex. Any idea how to fix this?

The order doesn't seem to make any difference. Looks somehow like a reconnect problem - I've read something about an 8 min. timeout if the controller was removed from the hub after initialization - but in this case it isn't physically removed.

That controller isn't officially "Licensed" by Sony.

That's why your inputs stop working after 8 minutes.

I've read a lot about the Hori Mini Gamepad - some say it works some have trouble.. Is it fully working with 1000 Hz and no delay or something else? So I will order one of these and return the other one.

I own the Hori Mini Gamepad, It works fully @ 1000hz - Only issue is you need to power the XIM on first, then connect the Hori Mini to USB Hub for it to work.

This will be fixed in the next firmware update.

perfect, I ordered it directly. Even with that small issue it's perfectly fine for me... much better than an 8 min disconnect :) Thanks again.

Is this an officially licensed controller?
No it's not an officially licensed controller and already back in the return package :) Haven't realized that it must be an official one until He4DHuNt3r pointed me out.

Hi,
Sorry if it has been asked already. I looked for the answer in a few topics but couldn't find it.

I just plugged my PS5 today and I remember on launch day, seeing someone posting "I just plugged my PS4 controller into the XIM which i plugged into the PS5 and it works just fine".

Do we agree this information is completely wrong now ? Because I just did, thinking it would work too, but nope...

You can only play PS4 games when using the DS4, if you use a 3rd party licensed PS4 controller like the Hori Mini Pad, you can play PS5 games with the XIM.

Do all officially approved 3rd party controllers work on ps5 games already? (without xim)
So official ds4 won't work, official 3rd party will and unofficial may or may not is that correct?

First of all Ty very much guys. Amazing job, especially on ps5 where we don't have any kind of 3rd party controllers available.
With this firmware  I'm able to use my elite series 2 Xbox controller on my ps5 flawlessly and I can even play ps5 games too. I'm using a nacon controller to make the conversion.

Good job guys keep it up.

Unofficial controllers won't work, they may work for up to 8 minutes only.

No, official licensed 3rd party controller's don't work on PS5 games without XIM, You need to use them with XIM Apex for them to work on PS5 games.

Most "Specialized" PS4 Fight Sticks & Racing Wheels work with PS5 games.

Cyberpunk was a very difficult games to support due to it's very poor aiming system. It will be marked with a 'U' in our support list. It's completed, but, will be released after the 25th.

Settings, switching keyboards, switching usb ports... U name it ! The controller works just fine through Xim Apex !

I'm using a Nacon revolution 3 controller with a logitec G502 mouse and a Sony nav controller  , running latest apex software. All boots up OK, plugged in controller, then mouse,then nav controller, all working fine,no  time outs etc. If you leave all plugged in,when you re start the PS5  it says controller is not supported, if you disconnect the Sony nav and boot up its all working as it should then just press the nav button and run wireless with no re starting issues at all,or just plug in after booting up. Wanted to say THANKS  for all the work and support that you have put into this issue with the ps5. :)

i can confirm that the hori fighting stick mini 4 works.

https://stores.horiusa.com/fighting-stick-mini-4-for-playstation-4/

tried it with PS5 CODCW, PS5 R6S and PS4 CODMW/Warzone.

worked fine.

just remember to set the stick to PS4 mode and not PS3 (there's a 4/3 switch just above the L1 button).

i used a sony navcon and a logitech G402 in my setup.

https://streamable.com/u11n4h quick vid of it working.

edit: i've also noticed that if you have the dualsense turned on at the same time, the xim setup will not work. so make sure the dualsense is off.

This isnt working for me. Plug it in, and the xim apex flashes yellow and keeps disconnecting the fight stick mini 4. Tried multiple variations of unplugging and plugging back in with my nav controller and mouse. And it still just keeps disconnecting my fight stick mini. Tried plugging nav controller in after xim powers up, it works to move around, but then says controller not compatible for ps5 codcw when i run it. Your video shows no issues, not sure why i cant just plug mine in and get it to work. my fight mini stick works fine on its on and is set to usb cable in settings. also my ps5 dualsense controller is off. unless its my xim apex thats off

saw a few posts about not being able to get the xim apex running with a hori fighting stick mini.

not too sure why it's not working for some but i made a quick video of mine booting up from the beginning:

https://streamable.com/gt2fr7

everything is plugged in from the start and i turn on the PS5 from my dualsense.

xim flashes a bunch of times (normal i think) and i don't get yellow lights.

the dualsense will turn off on it's own and i press the X button on the hori fight stick

i turn on my navcon and i launch into cod cw.

everything just works fine from then on. no disconnects after 7 minutes either.

thats super weird. how are u using ur nav controller without it plugged into the xim? usually u have to plug it in first then unplug for it to work wirelessly still no? so u just leave the cord plugged in then it connects to ur nav controller. Mine has to be plugged in for it to work? or could that be a battery issue, needing to be charged then connected via bluetooth? also i tried ur way of using the controller to turn it on but once it boots up for some reason it still gives me the yellow flashing on the xim... port 3 the hori, port 2 my nav, port 1 my mouse. idk ill try some more. gonna be trying the mini gamepad wired too soon

i had my navcon plugged in before and this made it sync/pair with the xim.

you'll should be able to use it wireless once you've had it connected via cable at least once.

it could be a battery issue if yours doesn't stay on unless plugged in. fortunately the battery on mine is still going strong all these years (since 2010!).

Anything I should be doing specifically.

I connect the Mouse to 1
Keyboard to 2
Astro to 3.

I switched devices to USB Cable (Tried on bluetooth as well)
I updated firmware and I downloaded manager on my IOS.

When I plug it in, it just continually slow flashes blue and never goes green. What am I missing!

Dang, i'm leaving a lot of messages...lol!

If I need to buy a new third party controller since the Astro has no resolution that I seem to be able to find and no one else has any advice.

-what is the best option/ cheapest option with headphone jack capabilities for a controller that is GUARANTEED to work.

I do not want to buy and return something else, I also don't want to spend 100$ + but it seems I may have too.

I was looking into the Hori Fighting Commander 4, unfortunately no audio jack cause that guy is 50$ CDN for me.

If it's just a authentication device, then I would suggest to buy the HORI PlayStation 4 Mini Wired Gamepad, because it's cheaper.

It's CDN$ 39.96 & FREE Shipping. I've got this gamepad too (bought at German Amazon) and it's working with XIM and beta software 15.12.2020 to play on PS5.

Another one here working with Hori Wired Mini Gamepad, but I had to connect an externally powered USB 2.0 USB Hub, otherwise it wouldn't boot!!

It seems the Apex was getting stuck with the White light crash.
(https://i.imgur.com/umqN9KC.jpg)

Forgive me the dusty and messy setup :o
I'm using here this 7-port usb 2.0 hub with external power and individual switches connected to the Xim Apex and on it there is the Hori Wired Mini Gamepad, a Razer Left Handed Naga 2020 Mouse and a Razer Blackwidow Ultimate Stealth Keyboard.

My Xim Apex was apparently crashing with the 3-port hub that comes with it, white light with everything, except the Hori Wired Mini Gamepad or the PS4 or PS5 controllers, in which occasions it flashed green a couple times.

I googled and found an old post by OBsIV saying it could be a power issue, so I tried this 7-port powered hub and it worked!!!

I retract my previous comment, the controller keeps disconnecting, I'm not even sure if the Apex is crashing/disconnecting or not, but the controller disconnected message keeps happening, can't play like this...

Lol, sorry but I just could not say nothing!

Any way, have just purchased a HORI mini wired gamepad so I can use my APEX, got it on eBay for just under 」20 brand new, wont turn up for a week or so yet as the seller is away....but will test as soon as I get it. To be honest I only got it as an emergency back up as I've not played a lot of FPS's lately (CoD, Destiny or Apex Legends), but when I do it's been PUBG which obviously is a PS4 game. Hopefully by the time I'm back into CoD or something else PS5 related then the DualSense will be supported and working directly with the XIM. But it's nice just to have a back-up, and like people are saying.....prices will rise the more demand there is for these working third party controllers, so thought I'd jump in early just in case!

Hey, I have the exact same setup. When you switch on the PS5, only have your g502 plugged in.  Once ps5 is on, plug in the Mini and then plug in the Nav stick. So basically -
1/ Connect Mouse to Hub 1 and connect hub to ps5 through apex.
2/ Start the ps5.
3/ Once you see the login screen, connect mini hori to hub 3.
4/ Then connect nav stick to hub 2.

I know it's a pain that you have to do this every time but it works fine if you follow this sequence.

Hi, I'm on PS4 Pro and did update my XIM APEX to this Beta firmware.
I can confirm that the 'Hori Wired Mini Pad for PS4' works also on PS4 Pro when attaching it to the USB-Hub after the XIM APEX intialized.
The Reason why I want to use this 3rd party controller over the Dualshock 4 is the finicky Micro-USB connection. Often times I have to replug the DualShock 4 and pray that it won't turn off.
With the undeattachable USB cable on the 'Hori Wired Mini Gamepad' I could eventually solve this issue.

The mouse works perfectly but if u wanna charge you're mouse when playing u don't use the Wireless  USB drive  that it comes with bc when the mouse pad is plugged in it connects with the mouse and then it works off of that pad and u can't use the Wireless USB drive that the mouse came with

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08HSKQYG4/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

In order for it to work with my setup i have to:

-Turn on PS5 with the Apex and the G502 and Orbweaver already connected.
-Connect the Hiori Mini after the PS5 initialize.

That's it.

Quick question.....there will be  STs for the PS5 and XBX OBsIV?

No, console shooters (no matter the platform) always have turn speed limits.

The ingame mechanics are the same so the PS5 version doesnt perform better or worse than the PS4 one of a game, so the turnspeeds are the same.
However the PS5 version usually has higher or smoother frames which results in a more fluid and responsive gaming experience.

Mouse & keyboard does work, but you need to order a third-party controller to shim the authentication along with the APEX.

Mouse + keyboard + third-party controller (to authenticate) + XIM APEX => PS5 will work.

Mouse & keyboard does work, but you need to order a third-party controller to shim the authentication along with the APEX.

Mouse + keyboard + third-party controller (to authenticate) + XIM APEX => PS5 will work.
Thank you. I have a scuf and mnk but I live in india.So should I order xim apex now or when there is an update for support of scuf cause it takes around 30-40 days to deliver.

Bruh, I知 from India too. I bought the Hori Mini from Amazon for rs 2390 and it works great with Xim Apex. Also, there are a couple of local vendors in Mumbai who had the Apex. I値l pass on their no so you don稚 have to import. I had got mine from AliBaba in 2019

Revolution is working perfectly!

Is anyone else using the Revolution successfully? If so, I can add it to the list.

I saw, that a few of you guys are using a Nacon Revolution Version  1 and it seems to work. When i try to use it, my PS5 says: this device is not supported and it won奏 work. Do i have to plug the controller and the mouse into the hub in a specific way? Or am I doing anythimg wrong? 

Setup:
Port .   > speedlink omnivi
Port ..  > playstation nav Controller

Hi guys

What's the best and most cost effective third party PS4 controller to use with the apex?

Hori Mini Gamepad works great. Although you have to press the PS button on it quickly, right after you swap it with DS4. Its the only way I get it to work constantly. You'll see icons appear on the upper right hand corner if successful.

It's not the cheapest option, but I have been having a wonderful experience by using hori tac pro as third party controller for xim.
I have full support for all tac pro functionalities (P2 headphone jack included) and no disconnections so far.

Sorry for the late reply, I downgraded the software from this update to the last one and the series x doesn稚 turn off, just to clarify, I知 using the XIM Apex with the series x controller with usb c on series x, XIM Having the last update, and my Xbox fully updated. I知 just having a problem with the series x turning off after a few hours ONLY on this update. Please dm me on discord if you want to talk to me more frequently to solve this annoying issue.

Hi. Tell me more. What do you mean? Doesn't it work just by connecting it directly and pressing the PS button? Each time you need to first use a DS4 and then swap with that one?

You need to leave the PS Nav disconnected until after the XIM boots up because the PS5 sees it as a PS3 controller during the initial authentication at boot up.  If you're planning on using the Nav wirelessly then plug it into Slot 1 on the hub (after the XIM boots up) to pair it.  Then disconnect the Nav and you should never need to plug it in again.  Just press the PS button on the Nav after your XIM is booted up each time and it should work wirelessly after that first initial pairing.

Greetings OBsIV,
Thanks for the hard work!!!

I'd like to point out a gameplay issue that happens, specially since the Hori Mini Gamepad doesn't actually have a touchpad, so there is no left/right touch for the touchpad with it connected...

The problem with that is that right now, if any game has two different functions for the touchpad, like left or right click, neither work AT ALL!!!

Anyone got a way around this?

Thanks SHERYIP,

I confess I didn't look this up in the manual, but 2 seconds holding this button to simulate left or right unfortunately doesn't help much, especially in multiplayer... And using dual sticks in this mode is just impossible for me personally...
I only have one hand and I cannot afford to let go of the mouse during gameplay for 2 seconds in most games and not die.

So many games seem to have standardized left/right touchpad clicks for character screen/inventory and the other for map/quests that I was really hoping that OBsIV and the Xim team could add left and right touchpad clicks in the Xim Apex keybind list by now...

For example in Demon's Souls PS5, Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne the gesture keybind doesn't work, because one side touchpad click is gesture and the other is the item quickbar, so you press the your keybind labeled "Gestures" in those games and nothing happens... maybe because there is no directional input?
Also with the Hori Mini, 2 seconds to open any Souls' quickbar and one is dead instead of teleporting out of the boss room or using any consumable item.

can you confirm that you don't have to replug the "hori mini pad" in the next beta / stable firmware ?

somebody claimed this in a post, but it was just a normal user, no staff member.

if this something that can't be fixed by xim, i have to sell that horipad and buy a different model / brand of controller then.

OBsIV,

Thanks for the amazing fix, I bought the Hori Mini Pad as well, but as I described in previous posts, it lacks an easy to use touchpad, it takes at least 2 seconds to rate a message or open the quickbar (not so quick anymore) in souls games.

The touchpad keybind for Souls games already doesn't work... like many other games, the trend of a right and left click for the touchpad as been established.

If this cannot be done for each game profile, maybe you guys could add it in the Global Hotkeys?
A keybind for touch-click left and another for touch-click right?

For me this would be an amazing accessibility feature, as I don't have my right hand fingers.

Thank you for making gaming on consoles possible for me!!!

That's not true, IOGEAR are testing PS5 compatibility beta firmware on there KeyMander 2 & 2 3Play, just some bugs to fix before releasing and should have some news at the end of the week. I'm keeping a close eye on both developments before upgrading from my Xim4.

Using the dual sense and s the dream, but as it is I picked up a fighting commander and have not had to touch it since I initially set up the apex.  I can even switch between using the XIM and the dual sense (for games like genshin that are much more relaxed) just by turning on the respective controllers.   

I致e regularly been playing the PS5 versions of destiny 2 and borderlands 3 with literally zero issues (honestly, the controller hasn稚 even disconnected, etc.).

You may want to do your research on it compared to XIM.  I have used other products and nothing comes close to XIM but that's everyone's own opinion. If they can figure out the Dualsense controller, it wouldn't take XIM to do so too.

Sure hope so mate, I've had good service from my Xim4 and still are with PS4 games on PS5, so a bit reluctant to move away. The KeyMander 2 is relatively new (believe about 8 months) but will definitely be researching it before buying. I may have to bite the bullet and pick up an Apex and third party controller, just hope it will support all future games if having to continue connecting in this way,  but not in any rush with what games are out for PS5 at the moment.

I've tried almost all of them nothing compares to xim when it comes to ease of use with quality 1 to 1 game translators.  Only area it doesn't really cover is scripts and or macros and the titan 2 handles that department better than anything I've tested.  Xim paired with titan 2  is unbeatable in my opinion I won't even waste my time on anything else.  instead I choose to try and help where I can to build up not just an awesome product but a great community.

Yes I use my Azeron on the ps5 with the hori PS4 mini pad. Just make sure to plug the hori in after xim has powered up should be no issues.

Honestly you can稚 go wrong with either system as I own both and they are pretty much the same when playing games. Now in the long run the x should show it痴 more overall power but both systems play games great. Really your decision if only getting one since both consoles now work with xim is who has the games you prefer.

Honestly didnt find it toxic at all and was thinking the same thing. Plenty of info in the first post and clearly states what has been tested and works so far. If issues like with the mini read further and see what people are doing like unplugging it and plugging it back in after the xim is booted. Felt this was pretty lazy honestly.

I just want to confirm, since it doesn't sound clear to me.  The DS4 controller DOES work on PS5 for PS4 games?  The thread was confusing because it doesn't really specify talking about JUST PS5 games on the PS5
thanks

Yes, the DS4 works on PS5 for games on PS4.

Yes, the DS4 works on PS5 for games on PS4.

No. It works, but disconnects after a couple minutes. Can稚 play a full fifa halftime without the controller freezing up. This is not yet fixed.

It disconnects only you. I just passed Sniper Elite V2 and 3 PS4 on PS5, with the DS4 connected and I didn't have a single cut.

This is to confirm that Hori RAP4 joystick works.
I happen to have it as I use it to play fighting games. Obviously, too expensive to get it just to use it with XIM.

I can buy Hori Onyx Gamepad. Can someone confirm that it's working? Especially 3.5mm jack for audio. Or can someone advice me the cheapest controller that works with PS5 games and has working 3.5 jack for audio (like ds4). Thanks!

I tried it, it could not work with my PS5 with USB. It has to be paired via blue tooth. Thus, I couldn't get it to work with Xim at all.

theres something going on with YOUR end of things then, I was ale to play Destiny 2 and Battlefield 1 for hours on my ps5 using a ds4 like it was a normal ps4 and it was flawless. Last time I had an issue with it freezing randomly it ended up being the USB cables I was using.

Heey JerryHatrick...

While I love new equipment, for some of us it's not that simple.
It costs me around US$260 to import an Amazon piece of equipment labeled $120, here in a country where the minimum wage is 88 cents of a dollar per hour.

The Hori Mini Gamepad I got for playing PS5 Demon Souls alone cost me US$65.. I hope I can re-sell it when compatibility is complete. Also, I need some programming magic for the touchpad to work, using it in the Hori Mini takes several seconds, so I hope OBsIV and the Xim team can do something about making the touchpad left/right clicks bindable.

Anyway, I was also born without my right hand fingers, so that's an issue...

I AM, though, fortunate to have a good government job here, being 35yo and single with a lot of disposable income.
Even after I moved out, I had to go back to take care of my mother who is now 72yo and I'm an only child.

Also now there are Covid restrictions by the governments or delivery services to packages to or from certain countries,
So this year is definitively not the time to release new hardware...

I hope I have shared a different perspective on this matter.
Thanks to everyone who read this far.

Nevertheless this is how companies make money. You don稚 have to buy it but somewhere along the line someone needs to get paid. Think any other electronic gadget (phone) the old ones still work but don稚 have new features. If you want the new features then cough up the moolah. I知 still on a XIM4 but will happily purchase any new iteration when required as per xim3 - XIM4. YMMV

Well said JerryHatrick and totally agree, If I've got to spend another 」120 on an upgrade from my Xim4, I'd rather have a new tec designed Xim than some type of get round on an ageing Apex,  what is it something like 3 year old tec now?, and yep before anyone comments, I've read all the feedback ("we aren't working on another mouse and keyboard adapter" . "Incompatibility with PS5 isn't because of a XIM APEX hardware limitation" etc...). Just a shame a new one is not coming out  :( :-\

I must dig this quote, but I believe OBsIV said that the hardware limitation for the Xim4 is internal memory (for firmware, I assume), so the Xim team was not sure they could implement the PS5 total compatibility in the Xim4, but complete compatibility is expected for the Xim Apex.

No, had to google to find out what that is.
I usually avoid betas because of the potential hassle. The XIM beta however has 1) allready good feed back 2) potentially great benefit.

Keep up the good work!

Hi there,

Today I just received my Razer Rajiu Ultimate Edition in the mail. However I am having trouble getting it to work with the PS5 using the XIM APEX.

I have downloaded and flashed the latest beta version, and connected my Rajiu controller to port 3 on the XIM.

Does anyone know what I am doing wrong / what I need to do to make it work? Thanks!

The behavior when using my mapped button via the XIM is the same as when I press the trackpad button on the mini controller itself, so I assume it痴 a limitation of that controller.

Same problem here with the Hori mini, the touchpad function is just not practical, I have reverted back to using my PS4 to Remote Play PS5 Demon Souls plus Bloodborne and all Souls games using the Dualshock 4 touchpad, however with Remote Play the problem is the PS button, it opens a menu in the PS4 instead of working like it should in the PS5..

Hopefully we can get keybinds for left/right touchpad clicks, or just full compatibility with the PS5 DualSense controller..

Let's just wait and see what OBsIV and the Xim.Tech team are planning.
Cheers!!!

Hello, I just saw that the xim apex is compatible with the new PS5 and I had some doubts, I already have a good configuration for warzone and BtF v on the ps4 will it work the same with ps5 or do I have to do it again? I am also reading that to some the mouse does not feel smooth, so my question is if it is worth it or better to wait for a new xim?

It will work for warzone and other ps4 games... But it won't work without specific 3rd party controllers for ps5 games as the dualsense isn't working with it yet.

Razer Raiju Tournment; I tested with direct wire input, my mic is fine. Only when connected to xim fail to that.

ds4 works on everything, only my pricy Razer fail.

People have been saying that the hori mini works, but i dont understand how you use your headset with this setup.
are you able to still turn on the ps5 controller to use your headset and use the hori mini for input with xim?

You would use a USB Sound card instead of the dualsense to use your headset ^^

So I can confirm that the Nacon Revolution V1 also works in PS5 mode.
Sound via controller is also possible. I no tried the mic.

The important thing is how you connect it.

1. PS5 Setting -> Change controller connection from Bluethoot to cable.
Then restart the console and proceed as follows:

2. I start the PS5 with the Dualsense. XIM is plugged in only with mouse.
3. As soon as you log in via Dualsense, plug the Nacon into the Xim via USB.
4. Plug Keyboard or Sony Nav. Now you can still use the Sony Navi like me in my case.

With every restart, always start from point 2.

Thank you for the response!  So the xim apex has only 3 slots, keyboard, mouse, controller - how would you get this fourth usb in the mix?

Scuff impact is working. Set controller communication method to usb cable and everything seems to be working. Using the Astro hdmi converter for my headphones and mic and all sounds good. I have only played one game but so far so good.

The USB Sound Card plug's in directly to 1 of the PS5's USB ports.

You can use a USB extension cable if you need more length for your headset :)

Hi Blue aid, the comment above yours recommended an external usb sound board to plug in your headset.|


i got this one:

Hey everyone, we looked at the Hori Mini and we won't be able to fix the requirement that it needs to be plugged in after XIM APEX has been fully initialized. It turns out the Mini's USB implementation is really lacking -- it can't work through a hub.

to further add you can put the extension between your apex and its hub, I use a 10ft extension between my apex and hub so my hub sits on my desk beside me and makes it super accessible.

thanks a lot for the update and looking at the issue. that's very unfortunate. i have to sell my hori mini gamepad and look for another cheap third party controller with an integrated, non-removable usb-cable that will power on at the same time as the xim apex device. does anyone have suggestions?

i really thought to myself why weren't thirdparty controller on ps4 with xim not supported earlier?
because a controller with a built-in cable solves some really stupid annoyances with the dualshock 4 controller like constantly powering off due to the fragile micro-usb connector and i can use the ds4 for other things and i suspect the battery will be worn out less.

please don't stop the support for thirdparty controllers on ps5. it's awesome.

Only officially licensed controller's will work, even if OBsIV somehow got the XIM to see it as a PS4 controller, it would only work for 8 minutes before the PS5 will ignore button inputs.

When you say the latest firmware you are talking the latest beta firmware for the xim correct? Have you tried manually turning the controller on shortly after the xim powers on? I've had issues in the past where if I didn't manually turn my Xbox controller on the xim would never power it up and wouldn't connect.

The Hori Minipad wasn't allowing me to bind R1 for Destiny 2 for what ever reason.

I had gotten it to work with the customize buttons in game. But still couldn't see inventory or Settings without swapping controllers.

Grabbed a Hori FPS Plus (Red) and that I can verify works 100%. All 3 versions likely work. & the original post just says FPS Plus 4 . While I think they are all the same as the FPS Plus.

Greetings OBsiV,

Are there any plans to extend touchpad keybinding functionality to have at least different keys for left/right touch click?
I ask because most of the new titles have been settled on that standard and it would make it so much better for my accessibility issue, i.e.: half my fingers missing.

If there is no more touchpad functionality planned, I'll still have to let go of the mouse to use it, :( but at least the Nacon Compact appears to have a totally functional touchpad, unlike the Hori Mini.

Thank you for your time.

IOGEAR are testing PS5 compatibility beta firmware on there KeyMander 2 & 2 3Play, just some bugs to fix before releasing and should have some news at the end of the week.

Can you link that?

They finally figured out the 3rd party controller
"We will be releasing a beta build next week for those who want to try it, but it requires a 3rd party controller at this time. We have been able to get the PS5 to work with PS5 games using K2, but only with 3rd party controllers, not the PS5 controller yet. I will post the compatible controllers and the details when we release the firmware."

If there is a way to make it work using a PS5 controller, then, we will. Right now, there is no path that we know of. It isn't a hardware issue -- a new XIM won't make it work. I highly recommend following Titan's progress since they are much better at this sort of thing than we are.
