Its here BUT IM A NOOB
« on: 09:33 AM - 09/27/10 »
 ::) Sorry Xim community but after waiting for my Xim to arrive ive done nothing BUT read and read and read the FAQ in these forums and i thought i had it sussed i did everything by the book and at first thought i had nailed the installation 1st time as it arrived today. My mouse and wsad movement was showing up in the xim config box but i was getting no movement in game but i was from my xim 360 controller all analog sticks and buttons were working fine as normal while playing mw2 by just using the xim360 as a pad. So to the point i cant get no action from my mouse or keyboard transmitting to my console via Xim and to make things a little more deflateing to me my analog joysticks are not functioning anymore on the xim 360 controller, So basicly i have my xim wired up and all it can do is use the face pad and buttons in game or psn menu as im getting no response from my pc to console via xim for m/kb.

Im running windows xp home edition
version 2002
service pack 3
Xim360
CBA +
Ps3

Any help on how setting this up would be helpful ive tried thru all the FAQS which ive gone thru but to no avail id gladly appreciate if anyone could help me especially if your from the uk and i know this has been asked or tried a million times BUT im just asking for some friendly advice ALSO could this be a problem after my controller has a callobration of

OffsetRY=0
OffsetLX=0
OffsetLY=0
OffsetRT=0
OffsetLT=0
RatioRX=1.
RatioRY=1.

It looks like the drivers aren't installed. Have you uninstalled and installed the newest software package? After you've done that if it doesn't work plug the white usb cable (xim) into the pc and open your device manager, do you have an unknown device? any yellow exclamation marks?

Do you see anything named xim360 in your device manager when it's plugged in?

Have you tried other usb ports??

You are plugging in both usb cables on the xim2 to your pc during installation right?

Load up software when the software asks me to plug both cables in a usb i proceed to do so the context box which asks me to do this stays there after i plug the cables in it then detects that a xbox 360 controller has been detected with new hardware but for the installation to continue i have to shut the box which asks me to plug both cables in then it finishes install and same scenario all the time the xim config box shows movement but nothing on my playstation and if i can remember in device manager theres no new hardware

Well your calibration file is empty which means your computer can't see your xim hardware. It has you restart your computer? It shouldn't.

Is your xbox controller light turning on when both cables are connected? The xbox cable is grey, the xim cable is white, try to move the white cable over to one of the ports your mouse or keyboard is using.

it detected my xbox 360 controller and new device but when i go to device manager they are not there? Ive still got the Xim calibration tool box still up saying

looking for your XIM-enabled xbox 360 controller...
(please make sure both usb cables from your controller are plugged into your computer.)

BUT its always the same i have to close this box for install to commence ALSO it has already shown me in the task bar bottom right that they have been detected ? im puzzled

Can you open up the controller and make sure everything looks as it should?
