is it possible to reduce the deadzone of the sticks on a certain game with the XIM? when i don't want to use mouse and keyboard, just the controller on the xim, is it possible then to change the dead-zones of the sticks of the controller connected to the XIM?

i hope it is understandable what i mean.

yes you can do that, you will find that option in every game config :)

In Manager, go to Joystick tab and adjust from there.  Go too low (500-550 on PS4) and stick will become unresponsive.

Thanks. I didn't know this was possible. Also which port does the controller have to be plugged into for this to work ? Is the port at the back still ok or will you need two controllers?

Works on port 3 (one at the back) so no need for second controller :)

The Deadzone value for Joystick under the Advanced options will apply to controllers that are being used for cross console play. When you use a controller for cross console, it is treated as a joystick.

So he will need a 2nd controller then?

When I was messing with the values and got too low, it stopped my DS4 stick from working.  I just assumed it was shrinking the Deadzone, but wasn't sure tbh.

I know it took me best part of 2 days until I figured out what I'd done to fix the thing! - :-[  lol

yes you have 1 controller attached to port3 for authentification with the console and then another controller in port1 or port2 that those changes apply to then

for example when you want to play with an xbox elite controller on the playstation :)
or you want to use a joystick for flying in some games
