[Q/A] Xim Apex - Connection to PC no signal
« on: 08:30 PM - 02/11/20 »
Hi. Didn't find similar problem thread here.

Im trying to connect Xim Apex to PC and here is what i did:

1. Connected Xim to PC in flash mode and flashed latest Beta, after that factory reset
2. Connect Xbox controller + MK
3. Everything is detected in Xim Manager (except controller, described below), mouse and KB inputs are shown in app
4. Loaded game profile
5. Nothing happens in game

The one thing i just realised, but not sure if this cause issue - the controller is a 3rd party (like this - Here), its detecting as Xbox controller when directly plugged to PC and when plugged to XIM it shows the Xbox logo in the app and written "Controller", but controller become un usable and is just flashing green light instead of steady light.

Any suggests?

Use a genuine, first-party, Microsoft Xbox controller.

The receiver isn't compatible. Original controllers from the console makers are supported by APEX with the exception of the Xbox 360 wireless controller, this is not supported.

Hi guys, sorry to ask so many, but how about this kind of mini controllers, will it work with Xim? Supported hardware list only says - Official wireless Xbox One controller.

PowerA controllers do not have the required authentication chip on the device and don't work with a XIM.

A genuine Microsoft Xbox Wireless Controller is required to use XIM APEX on Xbox One. The controller must be connected via a micro-USB cable with support for both data & power.
