Obsiv, any plans to make the xim5 wireless and power it from the Sofa side or even power the Xim and peripherals by rechargeaable battery?

Hey roads, haven't seen you around in awhile. Yes, we've considered that. Question is the lapdesk. What are you using?

Yeah was quite suddenly stuck in work as I took over an employees work I had to fire and clean up the mess. I am using the Gduck one hope to find time to play a bit over the christmas holiday.
The X7 Soundblaster has a dongle for audio and chat and it makes me think if its not the best solution for the XIM to just add a power connector as the XIM3 had and make a dongle-pair for USB. If this dongle pair would work for other connections also just like a cord, I think it would be quite an interesting device even without the Xim.

What happened to the need for a "Wired Controller?"

I thought they could mimic the wired controller, the talk is still over the USB port not RF.

Valid concern and if you do it right lag is a millisecond but I might be wrong. I think W11ce investigated this once.

It depends on which part of XIM you make wireless. It could be the whole thing or just the peripherals.

I thought the whole thing as wireless peripherals are rare, heavy because of batteries and there are no N52te/G13 like wireless devices. You can already have that wit Sony chuck and wireless Logitech mouse.

I wouldn't mind this, so long as it's optional.

No Yeesh dont even know what it is but I will test it out. Yeah RML thatís why I say a two sided dongle would be awesome and a XIM with power plug.

The classical struggle of latency and wire, i for one prefer the side of latency.
