(I play on PC)My XIM Apex is not registering keyboard and mouse in-game, but it is picking it up in the manager. I have tried the latest FW and manager both beta and not beta, 3 different Xbox One controllers, 2 different cables, 3 different keyboards, and 2 different mice. I have tried plugging them in in different ways as stated to people with similar issues in countless different YT videos and forum responses. It shows all 3 peripherals in the manager at the top and the controller and MnK work perfectly by themselves in game. Any help is appreciated.

Welcome to the community. XIM does not support PC as a gaming platform but some players have been able to use XIM in their PC game by using a Microsoft wireless Xbox One controller with their XIM. Third party controllers are not supported.

With that said you may encounter performance issues using XIM on a PC due to the possibility of PC game look mechanics being different from their console versions. Using APEX at 1000hz on PC may cause performance issues as well. Using APEX at 125hz on PC may be required.

If using a new Xbox XS controller it will need a firmware update. There have been a few controller updates since the console has launched.

The firmware update can be done using an Xbox or PC.


Aside from this I'm not sure why it wouldn't be working but I recommend trying your setup with a supported platform like the Xbox One.
