Thanks for getting this out so quickly. I have the new Xbox Series X with the new controller plugged into the Apex and both are working great so far.

If you need it urgently and can not wait for the mac release you can use it with wine, it "should" work without flaws.

Thank you guys so much for the quick turnaround. Top notch as always!

Only feedback I have so far, which I will continue to monitor, is my headset control pad that is plugged into the controller next to the phono port has stopped working. It was fine yesterday using the old firmware, whilst using the Xbox one controller.

Interested in knowing the time frame on a mac update.

I still use the Xbox One S and my XIM no longer is seeing my controller on the app. Is there something I am missing?

Is this firmware supposed to make the controller be able to connect wirelessly through bluetooth? Any help would be appreciated

I have tried connecting many times to no avail

Hello,

DOES NOT WORK FOR ME

i updated Manager and Firmware to latest version.

I plugged it on xbox series X

it turns on but not the pad, I have to turn on the gamepad manually.

once it is on, if i run the manager it does not detects what console i'm using and i cant use keyboard and mouse.

if i connect my old xbox one x controller, everything works fine.

Let me know.

I've also another question:

Is possibile to copy/duplicate game configs? as an example, i have a gameconfig for fortnite on my xbox series x, i want to create a copy of it to use it on my playstation 4, obvioulsy i have to change something but i don't have to reconfigure everything starting from the beginning.

Can you please verify that the cable you are using to connect your Series X controller to your XIM is good (or even try a different cable)?

Thanks for the firmware update. For me this works, however, I'm using xim link software. Had a spare GoPro cable that I used to connect the controller to xim.

First connection got nothing until I connected everything to xim, then plugged xim into xbox. The cross-hairs went mad and jittery for about 20seconds then settled and so far seems to be working ok.

One observation is that my sensitivity seems to be slightly slower than before. But the movement of cross-hairs is smooth. More testing tonight and will update if I find anything else.

Hope that helps someone.
