    Homemade button box not working on Xbox One

    So I could use some help. I've seen on here that button boxes work for PC2 on an Xbox One so I decided to make one myself. I made it with an Arduino Micro and programmed it with SimHub's Arduino Configurator and my Xbox One won't recognize it, but it does get picked up by my computer. I've configured it to be a game controller and also a keyboard and neither make it work. This is the first time I've ever done anything like this so there is definitely something I missed and I'm hoping someone can help.

    Thank you.

    I don't know enough to be helpful, but I am using a button box (works as a keyboard, not as a game controller) with PS4. The inputs would randomly not work or register in game. I was able to adjust the programming of the button box just to simulate that the button was pressed a bit longer. And that helped a lot. It seems that the PS4 needs a slightly longer button push in order to register the keypress.

    Not sure if relevant to your situation, but maybe helpful.

    I've built a functioning box for my xbox, see here: http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/sho...x-input-wanted

    Can't remember the details, but there was a difference with what command I used, keyboard.write or keyboard.press or something like that. My code is in the thread, good luck!
