I LOVE YOU
bakbanaan, EVEN LESS INPUT LAG THAN the buggy Belkin!!!! This cable is fantastic! Ths Prolific PL-25A1, have NOT tried the suggested Laplink cable yet, but right out of the box this one is significanntly better. Belkin would freeze and i had ASDW working but the keys wouldnt release, then i couldnt get Belkin to reconize by Xim Link and this instantly works whenever i close xim link and reopen itm

We need a Leo input lag test device. The Belkin cable is causing problems for a lot of people, I have also noticed input lag. There are two chipsets on a PC motherboard, the mouse and keyboard and the regular usb. Any pre or post report with programming can cause Xim Link to mess up. The PL-25A1 chipset is incredible!!!! BELKIN IS AWFUL! Lots of users are reporting issues, probably jumbled programming with xim link and a chip that has 0.05% chance of crashing or causing behind the scenes programming errors. Careful of which cable you buy! Someone needs to buy the Leo device that the fellows use at Rtings website to test gaming monitors on these cables!!!! LISTEN! Input lag will fix the programming errors between xim apex and xim link!!! Im certain thats the technology fault here withr everyone having problems with Belkin cables.

This is the science of different USB ports. Might help you with any issues, since I believe input lag is directly related to cable problems. But i also believe that a really good cable could solve everyone's issues with xim link and detecting the transfer cable.

r0ger-yes, there is a delay using XIM Link and cable Belkin,I didn't quite understand how to get rid of the delay, but I'll try to connect the cable to the port on the motherboard,the topic is interesting to me, I'm waiting for the continuation)

I bought my cable brand new! Don't buy them used... Belkin cables have input lag, and if that isn't enough not to use them, its 100 percent the chipset.

Two reasons not to use Belkin:

1.input lag
2. Random weird stuff, lag, xim link stops detecting it, weird behavior and hiccups during game.

Does this work on PS5? And what controller would you use?

Don't ask if this works on PS5, check your Xim app and if  "Transfer Cable" right above your Game Input Translator Config Screen (example call of duty game logo art) than it will work.

The question you asked 'Does this work on PS5" is improper, the question ultimately is if the xim apex works on PS5 because the transfer cable works like a device (mouse or keyboard individually) you get a free port on your xim apex hub if xim link works.

I found a cable that works better than Belkin. Belkin fails over time, or randomly does weird stuff, and that stuff either stays the same or progresses.

any idea if these would work?

they have a different name than "Transfer Cable" they call them "Bridge Cables" or "Host to Host bridge cables" and that search brought up some interesting cables.

Has anyone had success running XIM Link on Windows 11? I'm not savvy enough to truly understand what or why I'm using Visual Studio 22.

I used XIM Link in the past with no problems on an old laptop running windows 8. Getting the program downloaded was not as smooth of a process this time around. Guess I'm just getting old.

Any tips for getting visual studio 22 to run the XIM Link installer file from Github? I'm using all the official links from this page. The Xim link 1.0 Beta works directly after downloading the file, however the 1.4.2.0 doesn't seem to be recognized properly by my PC.
