Input Mapper not recognizing BT controller

3 years 7 months ago #1 by Embidd
I have an Asus ROG Maximus VIII Formula motherboard which has built-in Broadcomm Bluetooth functionality. I've paired my controller with my PC and it shows up in Devices and Printers as a wireless controller, but for some reason IM won't recognize the controller unless it's plugged in. I know IM's homepage suggests a dongle, but is that necessary even though I already have Bluetooth?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

After some digging the only info I could find about that boards BT said it was a Qualcomm Atheros chip, not a broadcomm. You can try forcing the broadcom drivers onto it, it may work.

Ahh, you know what? I think you're right. So because it's not Broadcom it won't work with IM then?

Also, I just tried installing Broadcom drivers and it didn't work.

It just needs to be broadcomm compatible, meaning if you can use their drivers then it will work. Broadcomm compatible BT stacks are the only ones that allow us to connect to the device via MAC which is necessary for features like trackpad and lightbar.

Alright, thanks for the help man. Jeez, and that was some quick help too, I think I posted this only a few minutes ago.
