@#$% so they really clipped our wings in terms of PlayStation 5 support. Seems like we are never getting it with the Xim :(

blame sony

Sadly I can confirm that Sony or Sledgehammer/ Activision have killed the support for the Hori-Mini w/ Xim Apex on PS5 with COD Vanguard.

Xim Apex with the Hori-mini gamepad and Logitech G502 mouse.

I have used this combo for many weeks. I still can on BFV, Warzone and COD Cold War. ( as of Aug 28 )
It still works on these, but it would not work on the new COD Vanguard Demo this weekend.

I get the "Only PS5 controllers are supported" once game is loaded, and then the setup is disconnected.
Must reconnect it / restart the console or Xim again by removing and restoring power.
I tried many different startup orders. No difference.

I prefer use a PS4 controller in left hand for movement, and the right hand mouse to aim, shoot, reload, jump and crawl.
I will be devastated if I have to go back to a controller. I love my Xim 4 and Xim Apex. I have used for years to do this.
The Apex has been incredible.

I would use the mouse default keyboard combo but I cannot function with a keyboard for movement keys.
The mouse / controller hybrid really is the best once you get used to it.

I could care less about the aim assist that everyone cries about.

Will be checking back as I have pre-ordered BF2042. Fingers crossed a solution shows up before this.

I wonder if a Razer Tat will work for the movement hand natively on these games.

To OBsIV and the XIM team, thank you for the great products and support so far. It has been game changing ( literally )
I hope we can find a way to make this work on the next gen for all of us.
If so, I will support any way we can.

Battlefield 2042 checks for PS5 Dualsense controller - it won't work either.

Said repeated times, confirm from a good reliable source.

At least CoD/Warzone (and thus I assume Vanguard as well) has native support for MKB. You don't really need the XIM. But BF2042 I think will not. Anyone knows?

So for these controllers, do they work on ps5 exclusive games that have haptic feedback? or is it just for ps4 games on ps5

Hi I would be interested to buy a PlayStation 5 in October and it would be very important to me which controller is used with 100% PlayStation 5 games but the most important is FIFA 22 ?? because I was looking at the Nacon Compact controller, I want to buy it just here it is written where it works where it doesn't, It has changed since then Someone could give me information that this kind of controller works with PlayStation 5 in most cases ?? the original PS4 controller in no way works with ps5 games?

another question if I plug the PlayStation 5 dual sense controller into the USB port and plug the xim apex into another USB port in PS5 then both devices can work simultaneously ?

Hi all,

I've updated my XIM from firmware 5.00.20210223 to 20210625 and am using the Nacon Compact controller:

AC Valhalla is working (no change from old patch)
Ghost of Tsushima is not working (no change from old patch)

I also generated a new config using the latest hardware manager but that didn't change anything.

Hopefully this is useful, thanks for your hard work!

My Controller works now not  (Nacon Compact / Raizer    Raiju) with xim apex after the update  (fortnite / season 8) an d yes, i`ve installed 20210625 manager /firmware.....

Itīs a problem by the beta version?

Wīll be nice to read something this day an how to manage the problem.

Have bought yesterday hori mini,  today w`ll arrive by prime amazon hopefully, tell about this mini, if it works...

Maybe itīs time to change to x-box or pc an sell annything (xim + ps5)

Fortnite is not working on PS5 using the @play Wired Compact controller. Not sure if it’s the new Fortnite patch or the new PS5 system update that just updated today. Getting the this controller is not supported message.

Updated PS5 games Are not longer working with xim apex, there is a small chance that xim devs Will fix this in future, but now the only workaround Is using remote play with PC, this might be end of xim+ps5
