I decided to give XIM4 a try since it look so much better than CronusMax. But before I buy it I just wanna make sure that I can play PS4 games with my m+kb while they are plugged into my PC. The reason is simple: none of my PC, mouse or keyboard supports Bluetooth, and I dont want to plug and unplug them everytime I play my PS4. So is it possible to play them like how you would play using CronusMax?

I would suggest splitting the connections or getting a KVM switch for your mouse/keyboard to switch from console to pc on the fly.

You will also be able to use XIM Commander for this purpose without a KVM, but it's still in development.

Yes, with a KVM or splitter as Cybie mentioned.

If you get a KVM, make sure it does not have emulation or it may interfere with the signal being passed to the XIM.
