XIM Apex with PC
« on: 09:49 PM - 04/04/18 »
Hello, I am trying to set up my XIM Apex with my PC. Are there any resources or any relevant topics around that I can refer to?

I know people will ask why, and its because im using a Logitech G13 gamepad instead of a keyboard and it has poor 1st party driver support. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Welcome to the community. There is no guide that I'm aware of. PC is not a supported gaming platform but some users have been able to use it with PC games by connecting a Microsoft wireless X1 controller or a Microsoft wired 360 controller to XIM4.

If the following wont do it then your PC game just doesnt work with a xim:

0) verify that the xim works with a console! That way you can also identify additional problem sources such as powerdraw issues and so on
1) use an xbox one controller, it has the best compatibility
2) start the game with the controller directly connected to the game, xim disconnected
3) once you can confirm the controller works with the game, disconnect it and connect it together with the xim
4) if the mouse and keyboard (xim) doesnt work try pressing the xbox button on the controller

I couldn't get XIM to work on PC until I used a wired Xbox 360 controller or a Xbox One Controller. Wouldn't work no matter what I tried with a PS4 controller.
