Mouse and keyboard on xbox withouth a controller?

Post by yolominaty »

I recently updated to gimx 8.0 and updated my second controller as well which doesn't work anymore so I had to use my other controller which I actually needed to hear ingame. Basically, gimx works with that controller, it starts up just fine but for some reason if I unplug the controller while it's running it works just fine. Could this be made an actual feature? Because it would be really awesome if we didn't need an other controller.

Hi

Unfortunately the controller is needed for authentication reasons, you might get it to work a few minutes but at some point the console would terminate the connection since its not receiving authentication form the controller.

A controller would always be required for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 for authentication. To my knowledge this will not change as doing it without a controller would require reverse engendering of the authentication and that is a area where console makers can turn around and say you are doing something illegal

That's quite interesting, on the Playstation 4 it disconnects after 8 minutes

You see? Xbox is poorly made 😂 it's like "hmmm, this was a controller before so I assume it still is ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ " , the console has some other anoying stuff, it can't take usb headphones and I have to use my razer nari ultimate wired and even then it put's the mic sensitivity high into the sky and I echo all the time -_-

There may be a difference between running a configuration with controller mappings and without controller mappings.
