I'm not sure via Xim4 alone, but definitely possible using a Titan One (or forthcoming Titan Two).

I use the DS4 light-bar as a status indicator for rapid-fire on/off and to flash on cool-down timers. Lots of fun to be had combining a Xim with a T1.

When is Titan 2 coming?  PSVR games may require light bar that's why I want it on, LOL, for tracking.

Sept / Oct. They want to launch prior to the holiday season.

A quick look at my DualShock with no scripts running on the T1 displays a blue light-bar while connected to the Xim, which is the default colour. So the T1 / T2 act as pass-through devices from the console to the DualShock light-bar.

I have a PSVR on pre-order and I'm in the T2 beta, so I'll be able to confirm if it works or not for tracking in VR games.
