Hello, which pins were problematic for you? I'm getting the same error. I am trying to find out if anything is connected wrong. I am using Arduino pro micro and ft232r. (i connected rx to tx and tx to rx) and ofc gnd to gnd

It could be that the ft232r is not compatible. Some work, some don't depends on the board.

Fixed the problem by changing the USB cable. But now, when I choose the following options and press check:

Output - "GIMX adapter"
Port - COM3
Input - "Physical Devices"
Config - XOne_ApexLegendsSeason2_kaiba_seto2004.xml
Messages - "None"
Mouse capture - "Auto"

I get "A device name is empty. Multiple mice and keyboards are not managed"

This double hid keyboard is the same keyboard, but for some reason, It shows as 2 devices.

Note that "A device name is empty. Multiple mice and keyboards are not managed" is not a big problem, it's just letting you know. You may ignore it, and it shouldn't affect the functionality.
