    Yes, the KeyMander supports most gamepads and joysticks as long as they have a standard set of F keys.

    Yeah speaking of that, am I able to use the Keymander with the playstation navigation controller on xbox one as a keyboard.
  • Moderator [Derek]

    Yes, the PS3 Navigation controller does work with KeyMander, but there are some special instructions you need to follow. The PS3 Nav controller will actually replace the Dual Shock4 controller connected to KeyMander, but only after you have signed in to the PS4 with the DS4.

    To use the PS3 Navigation controller with KeyMander:
    1. Start with the Dual Shock4 (DS4) controller connected to the controller port on the KeyMander.
    2. Sign into the PS4 as you would normally.
    3. Unplug the DS4 controller from the KeyMander (don't sign out!).
    4. Connect the PS3 Nav controller to the KeyMander.

    The keyboard will continue to function to switch profiles, and the Option and Share buttons but you will now use the PS3 Nav controller in place of the keyboard when gaming. You will likely need to reassign the controller buttons in the PS4 menu so that you can take better advantage of the PS3 Nav controller.

    To remap the controller functions for the PS3 Nav controller:
    1. On the PS4, go to Settings > Accessibility > Button Assignment.
    2. Enable Button Assignment.
    3. Change the buttons as needed for your game.

    As an example, for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare with PS3 Nav controller we made the following changes in the PS4 Button Assignment menu:
    Assign Circle to L1 function (crouch)
    Assign X to R1 function (jump)
    Assign L1 to Circle function (flash)
    Assign R1 to L2 function (aim-down-sight)
    Assign L2 to X function (lethal)

    We've made the following keyboard and mouse mappings in the KeyMander software:
    R1 (aim-down-sight) mapped to right mouse button
    R2 (fire) mapped to the left mouse button
    Square (reload) mapped to forward mouse button
    Triangle (weapon swap) mapped to back mouse button
    R3 (melee) mapped to mouse click wheel button

    The attached KeyMander profile is set up as above and works as a good starting point so you can see how the button assignment in PS4 works with the KeyMander key mappings.

    Thanks, what about on xbox?
  • Solomon
    I figured it out thanks!
  • Solomon
    After figuring this out, I've ran into a huge problem. I can't use my headset without using the xbox one controller but I can't have the controller turned on or I can't play. What should I do
  • Moderator [Derek]

    I'm sorry I completely missed the part that you were on Xbox One!

    Ok, so here's how I got the PS3 Nav controller working with KeyMander on Xbox One with audio:
    1. You need to use a PC connected to KeyMander as you will be using the KeyMander in Play Mode.
    2. Connect your keyboard and mouse to the PC.
    3. Connect the mini-USB cable between the PC port on KeyMander and the PC.
    4. Connect the mini-USB cable between the Game port on the KeyMander and the Xbox One.
    5. Connect your primary Xbox One controller to the KeyMander.
    6. Start the KeyMander software on the PC and click Play Mode in the upper right hand corner of the computer screen. (Make sure you already have your chosen profile uploaded into KeyMander!)
    7. Sign into your game.
    8. Connect the PS3 Nav controller to the Mouse port on the KeyMander (not the keyboard port!).
    9. The PS3 Nav controller will now function as the keyboard and D-pad buttons, but you will lose audio from the XB1 primary controller.
    10. Now connect a second Xbox One controller (with audio port) to the Xbox One using a micro-USB cable. DO NOT SIGN IN to your same account on that controller!
    11. Connect your headset to the second Xbox One controller and you will have audio.
    12. The keyboard still functions as well.

    Now some caveats- If the game you are playing does not allow you to change the button mapping, you can do so in the Xbox One Device menu but you cannot change the left and right trigger mapping. I tested this on Doom, and to make it playable I had change the controller layout to Strafe in the Doom settings menu, so I could make it playable with the jump button mapped to L1 on the PS3 Nav controller. I then mapped the Y, X, RB and LC buttons to the mouse so everything works. Doom is actually really fun this way with the PS3 Nav controller!
  • Solomon
    Thanks, I will try this later
  • Moderator [Derek]

    I just added some caveats to my original post.

    Will a logitech extreme 3d pro work? I have an xbox one and wanna use a joystick to play farm simulator
  • Moderator [Derek]

    We haven't specifically tested it, but we are compatible with nearly all the joystick models we've tried. You just have to set it up as a joystick instead of a mouse in the user interface software.

    I have an Xbox One X and would like to purchase a second WIRED (cheap) controller to permanently attach to the KeyMander for game play. This way I can use the included wireless controller for other functions such as Netflix, Hulu, etc. My primary reason is so I don't need to keep moving a single controller back and forth. This is set up in my living room so everything needs to be wireless from the couch to the TV. Will this work, or do you have another suggestion?
  • Moderator [Derek]

    We haven't found a non-original XB1 controller that works correctly with KeyMander. I would suggest getting a used one on eBay or something if you want a cheap one to do this.

    I’ve managed to get the Logitech extreme 3D pro joystick to work with the keymander on Xbox one. However it is only registering as the left Xbox stick. I’ve tried to get it to work as the right stick but no luck. Does anyone have any advice on how to get the joystick to work as the right stick?
  • Moderator [Derek]

    The current KeyMander firmware interchanges the mouse and joystick function and does allow some joysticks to function for movement but has a severe limitation with buttons. We do not have a Logi 3D pro joystick for testing right now, so I don't have much information to offer at this time.
  • tarkawildotter
    Is there any chance that you will be testing a Logitech extreme 3D pro joystick in the future ?
  • Moderator [Derek]

    Hi Tarkawildotter,
    We have been out of the office all last week for the Consumer Electronics Show so I'm sorry for the late reply. We are working on a large updated firmware build right now so I don't think we will be getting to the 3D joystick for a little while. I will order one so we can study the control protocol, but these kinds of updates take awhile.
