[XBOX ONE] GIMX exited but guide button was never activated.

Post by KingOlympus » Thu Apr 12, 2018 2:53 pm

Hi everyone

I am trying to get GIMX to work on my Xbox One. It already works fine for my PS4.

So I have the official adapter, loaded the XONE firmware, used a very simple config just for the direction keys and whenever I start it says press guide button to continue.

So I press the guide button on the xbox one controller, i even keep it held down, but nothing happens, none of my commands are sent to the xbox.

Anyone experienced this before?

My controller is the right one, without a 3.5mm jack and surely I am just doing something wrong as I couldn't find a thread that mimicks the exact behaviour.

THanks in advance!

You did make sure that controller was turned on before plugging it into the pc correct?

Yes i even tried it with it being turned off.

Latest firmware on xbox, controller and gimx.

It seems it’s losing its pairing the moment i plug it into my win10 or win7 machine :/

Hi,

Please post a log file as requested in forum rules: viewtopic.php?f=5&t=691

You actually have to press the button that is assigned to guide in your config.

Hi Matlo

Apologies about missing that!

Here it is:

I did try that too and still nothing happens on the Xbox One. My PlayStation 4 works perfectly though and yes I have installed the right firmware for the Xbox One on the GIMX adapter.

Also thank you for shipping the adapters, really saved me a lot of trouble :)

Unfortunately this did not help either, the workaround described in that thread was the first thing I tried.

Am I missing something really obvious maybe?

Latest Xbox firmware and controller firmware are not an issue, right?

Shouldn't be. Can you try on GIMX 6.9?

I did some tests and it turns out my instructions were wrong.

Try pressing the Xbox controller guide button for 1 second. It should blink briefly and after that it should work.
