Do you ever see a yellow blinking light sequence display on your XIM?

Oh yes that's an important detail -- red/yellow light sequence means your XIM detected a large power draw and your XIM shut down it's port to protect itself from damage from too much current passing through it. That's the circuit breaker I was talking about.

Well for what it's worth, I can't seem to be able to run the tool as it just hangs up my PC.

All other beta versions that I have saved all works immediately. This version seems to give me a spinning circle and i have to restart my Windows Explorer.

Really? It's strange since I tested it. I'll check it out.

Great to hear you are back on track. You hit an Xbox One USB bug that has been there since the console was first released. They still haven't fixed it unfortunately.

Welcome to the community. I'm sorry to hear this -- this is terrible! I really don't know what could cause something like this. The way USB power supplies like the one your Xbox uses works is a electrical load draws/pulls current, you can't force/push current into the load here. If you controller started smoking, it means it pulled a lot of current and burned itself up. Your XIM is a power pass-through device -- it's not an active power source. That said, both your XIM APEX and your Xbox console have circuit-breakers built in to prevent any faulty load from drawing more power than it can handle. It sounds like your Xbox shut down the port. Have you tried unplugging your Xbox, waiting for a minute, and plugging it back in?

Welcome to the community. Did you say that some times the Xbox icon will disappear from Manager? If so, can you please try a different USB cord to connect your controller?

Hi Daniel, welcome to the community. Do you see your Xbox controller showing up in Manager? If so, can you place try a hard reset of your console by pressing and holding the power button down until it shuts off and then turn it back on?

Welcome to the community. The first thing that we need to do is figure out why you aren't initializing (4 green lights). What console are you on?

Welcome to the community, and, I'm happy to hear you got your question resolved. :)

Can you elaborate more on the exact issue you are having?

Can you have them ensure the firmware is up-to-date on their Elite?

ooOOooh! Do I detect an annoyed OBsIV? You don’t see them very often!  ;)

Yes, was it obvious? :) I hate developing anything for Apple products because they have this constant need to control absolutely everything -- even if it doesn't benefit anyone. For example, just this month during one of the TestFlights I was rejected because out of nowhere Apple decided to demand I make a video showing Manager running on an iPhone and how it works. This is for an app that has been available their store for 2 years! Now all of a sudden they want me to drop everything going on to make them their own personal instructional video? I have so many examples of this. Like all the way back before we supported iOS I needed to know if I could use a Bluetooth Classic interface called "RFCOMM" to connect Manager to iOS (like we did for Android and PC at the time). They wouldn't answer me because it was "propriety information" and I would have to join their MFi program by formally registering our business with them and paying $150 for them to answer me. I decided to do it since it would save a ton of development time if we could access that interface. So, after several months (and $150) they finally got back to me. Know what they said: "Nope, you can't use RFCOMM". Instead of just telling that up front, they made me go through all this nonsense for nothing (which is why we have to use Bluetooth LE even though it's slower and switched Android for XIM APEX to reduce development burden). Trust me, I can go on and on.

Thanks everyone for your feedback!

When I click to update the iOS manager the link takes me to the 7/2 download.

As always, we need to wait for Apple to approve it. They like to take their sweet time on this and it will take longer because it's the weekend since they have more important things to do like hang out on the beach rather than let apps through with important updates for companies trying to run their businesses.


If you'd be on the other side, would you be able to do something against XIM users?

Just wondering  ;D

SAB (and other things XIM does in this area that I haven't talked about) was designed first and foremost to behave like a controller and also include the inherent randomness that comes with it too without degrading the user's experience.

That said, I do look at the output and think about how I would identify patterns that would be completely reliable since the bar is very high -- you cannot be wrong under any circumstances since you will falsely detect controller users. Given their numbers, even if they were to be able to achieve a 99% detection rate, they will be falsely blocking thousands of their controller gamers.

I'm especially passionate about this because, as I've mentioned in other posts, I've gotten many mails from people with disabilities or parents of those with disabilities thanking me for XIM and how it's changed their or their kids lives. That they finally can be included into something like gaming. This is something that we all take for granted and I'm not going to let a bunch of whiners routinely place blame on XIM even though reality is they got killed by another controller player and they really aren't as good as they think they are.

There is a discussion going on about this here: https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=79696.0
