Xbox One Arcade Stick

Post by alivangschir » Mon Feb 20, 2017 2:41 pm

Hello,

I have a very specific question regarding the Gimx and an arcade stick for the xbox one.
The problem with arcade sticks for xbox one on PC is that the trigger buttons do not work at ALL because Microsoft can't provide a working driver for them. With the Xbox One Controller driver the other 6 buttons and the joystick work though. The only solution for the last 2 years was to rewire the buttons which was ok but no real solution.
After discovering the Gimx I thought that maybe one could use it to make it work properly by emulating a Xbox360 or Playstation controller?

Thanks in advance :)

Hi,
I don't know if it can work because almost all GIMX controller emulations were not made to work with a PC as target.

Ah I thought since you could make an Xbox One controller act like a PS4 controller on a PS4 console maybe that would be possible on the PC as well.

Device drivers may behave differently. The PC driver may send specific requests.
For this reason I cannot guarantee that the PS4 controller emulation works on PC.
