Use GIMX with XBOX Serie S

Post by Brucelee1709 »

Hi,

Does GIMX work with XBOX serie S ?

My setup is:
Mouse/Keyboard/Joystick ---> PC Windows 10 ---> GIMX adaptator ---> Xbox serie S (Flight Simulator)

Firmware EMUXBOX is load with success, but when I start GIMX launcher the following message is returned:
src/windows/gprio.c:376 unsetprocessaffinities: setprocessAffinityMask failed with errors : Access denied

Thank you very much for your help.

You need Xbox One Controller connected to PC. Xbox Series Controller will not work. Also do not update firmware on Xbox One controller if console asks you to.

Hi GodLike,

Ah ok, Can Xbox One Controller be wireless?

A friend have a wireless K-PAD Thorium with X-input or Direct input function this device will work ?

Thank you very much!

Xbox One controller needs to be connected to PC by cable so it can pass authentication data.

If custom controller has same hardware ID as Xbox One Controller then it should work but it's very unlikely.

Hi, will there be support for series SX in the near future?
Is there a way we can help?
And since I have to buy the controller, is there a way to check the version of the controller's firmware to see if it's supported?


P.S. :since there's a migration happening from pc to S/X (since availability, low price of series s, gpu shortage is happening), a native support would be nice, if I can help in any way (have an X) lmk

First we would like to support PS5. Its support problems gives us a headache. Xbox Series X/S will be supported in future for sure.

Thank you for your offer of help but we already have required hardware, both of us have Xbox Series X.

About controller FW — I don't think so unfortunately. You may want to check if it has bluetooth:

If no then I think it should be supported. I have Jack but no bluetooth model and it is supported even on newest firmware.

I'm sorry that this is so complicated. We will try to bring support for all controllers in future.
