Well I seem to have a severe range issue with mine, have tried on Xim and every USB port on my laptop and it has to be right next to the dongle to maintain a connection. Man what a disappointment. I've emailed them to see what they can do.  :-\

Wow I haven't experienced that. But I do sit pretty close anyway, like 2-3 feet away. Were you having to stay closer than that?

Also I just performed some recognition tests. My pc recognizes all three modes. Keyboard acts like a keyboard and the other two modes are recognized as a game controller. But the xim4... only recognized keyboard mode. The other two modes were not recognized at all. I tried going through a few different scenarios as far as boot sequence but no luck. I was in a rush though, I work from home and was trying to test the grifta and juggle work at the same time. This afternoon I'll have more time. I'll also test some gameplay with xim this afternoon as well. Didn't have time this morning. Game play worked fine on pc yesterday, we'll see about console today.

OBsIV,

I have noticed in Dinput mode that when I press the trigger button on the bottom it causes me to aim straight downwards to the ground, whereas keyboard mode does not have this issue and behaves like a normal button.

Do you get the same behavior from yours?

I have this exact same issue when in D-input. While looking at it in windows, it was registering as z-axis movement rather than a button press (this was last night so I'd need to check again to confirm).

I can't move it more than ~20cm/8" away from the dongle, a joke really. Tried on my Xim, laptop and PC, same result on all of them; super frustrating. Like you said, my pc picks up each different mode perfectly, but I have to hold it next to the dongle for it to work.
Worst part is, there's no forums, no troubleshooting or FAQ for it. I can't find any comments on their kickstarter page with anyone mentioning a similar issue. I've emailed them; hopefully they're reliable and can sort something out for me.

Yeah, same here. Windows sees the trigger as z-axis in both X-input and D-input. Wow this is really disappointing, hopefully it is something that can be fixed with a patch some day. If this project actually makes it.
I guess I'm lucky, it does actually work for what I wanted. I only wanted it for the keyboard mode to use for pc gaming. It will be nice to have this option for those games that won't allow simultaneous mouse and controller input. For everything else it looks like I'll still be using the ole faithful sony nav.

Yeah, back to nav for me too. Have tried contacting them through various methods; website, email, facebook, kickstarter,  even a comment on one of their youtube videos, yet to receive any replies...

I also hope the trigger gets some kind of support to work as a button instead of the z axis on D input mode, i dont really like how the analog stick feels in keyboard mode but thats just me, I contacted the grifta creator, i think his name is Paul, and he said he was gonna contact OBsIV to see if  there is some kind of fix.

Did you end up hearing back from him?

I finally heard back and he's sending me a new wireless dongle as he believe's that is cause the lousy connection issue I'm having; 2 in 2000 apparently.

Just saw this on Amazon UK in the QA section:

Does the Grifta work on Xim 4 as advertised..
Yes. From the very beginning, we intended the Grifta to work with the XIM4 and have been in regular contact with OBsIV to make sure that there are no compatibility issues.

Does this mean the trigger issue is being looked at?

Curious to know if any others have received one and hear their thoughts on it

He says the usual: "modular game pad, flexible, will be delivered shortly, you can separate them and use one in  key board mode (thumb stick translates into WASD), it is compatible with PC but with an adapter you can use it with console, you can use it for VR, the Antlers transform it into a VR controller, six degrees of freedom, we use a very strong Osram LED, with the right VR camera you could use it as a mouse. It was founded two years ago via kickstarter, the left side is now available we will ship the game pad in a few weeks. The advantage over a normal keyboard is that you can sit on your couch. I had the idea for it a long time a go and I got the courage to do it because there were no split controllers, now the a switch and occulus touch. The grifta is an open system, you can hack it an modify all of it."

But keep in mind that he is liar and never ever meet a deadline, not by a long shot. He shipped the LH solo units in January and we have no idea what he did in the last two months and he just announced that I am now preparing the Grifta Duo pledges for the first mass production batch. Half a year went by between the first production batch of the LH solo units and the delivery of the LH solo units.
 
I suggest to everyone who got screwed by Paul to spread the word.

Despite all the promises he hasn't kept to me and all other backers, I'm still going to hold my breathe a little longer and hope that my Duo reward gets sent to me soon. Waiting sucks, but it's better than not getting what I paid for in the end, and losing a lot of money of which I've invested.

I want to bump this thread back up. I just got my Grifta and I'm also having the problem of on Dpad mode when I press the trigger it looks down. I'm also on the boat of not really liking the instant and restricted ASWD controls in Keyboard mode. That's why I wanted a stick instead of keys in the first place.
If anyone has a fix, I'd love to hear it because otherwise I'm very happy with my grifta!

We are going to need more time to look at why DInput stick isn't working right with our latest firmware.
