Frequently Asked Questions
Which operating systems or game consoles is the HID compatible with?
The joystick is tested on Windows 10, OSx, Android, iOS, Xbox one and the Xbox adaptive controller.
But all platforms that support HID mouse, HID keyboard or HID joystick input should work.
This means that you can directly connect the HID interface to the USB port of your game console if there is native support.
Note: iOS has mouse support from iOS13 onwards.
Note: Not all games are designed to support mice/keyboard input. You can find lists online that show which games are supported (e.g.https://www.digitaltrends.com/gaming/xbox-one-games-mouse-and-keyboard-support).
Note: The Flex Controller for Nintendo Switch is not compatible with the mo-vis HID joysticks. This requires a HID gamepad device.
When I use the HID joystick directly on my game console, I can only play a select list of games?
Most game consoles do not allow third party game controllers. Only games which are developed to accept HID mouse, HID keyboard or HID joystick input can be played with the HID joystick.
Additionally, Xbox has created their own adaptive controllers (XAC), which allows a third party device like the HID joystick. This means that on this console all games can be played.
Note: workarounds for other games consoles exist (e.g. CronusMax + adapter), but they are not officially tested by mo-vis. These workaround devices often require an original wired controller that matches the console.
Can I use the HID joystick on my Xbox adaptive controller (XAC)?
The mo-vis joystick is compatible with the XAC USB ports.
Pro tip: switches can also be connected to the HID interface, instead of the XAC. To do this, the buttons need to be configured as joystick buttons. These are mapped to predefined actions in the XAC.
- The Xbox adaptive controller will map the first 8 buttons to X1/X2/ThumbBtnL/A/B/View/Menu for the left USB port and View+Menu/ThumbBtnR/X/Y/X1/X2 for the right USB port. Any additional buttons will be ignored.
- If the mapped buttons are reconfigured using the Xbox accessories app, the new configurations will be applied to USB HID joystick buttons too.
- By connecting the buttons to the interface instead of the XAC, you can add more functions to the same button by cycling through different configuration sets or using a short/medium/long press.
Does the HID joystick have Bluetooth functionality?
No, but you can use it with an external bluetooth adapter.
At mo-vis, we tested the TetraMouse (TetraLite Products) and the BT500 (Handheld scientific).
