No problem, it's very too bad Microsoft don't create a chat pad's driver for Windows...
 
Thank you for your quick answer,

It cannot be done with the wireless receiver which I only have. I'm not sure about the wired one. Anyway, any usb wake up event is controlled by the bios, not the software.

Can you add an option to check the battery status? Like when its charging or in low power.

Implementing that feature is not a big deal, but first I need to know what is the advandage of it over the standard 4 led blinking when the battery is low.

Cool. I'll be downloading trying this out later this week. Also, is there any way to automatically activate mouse when application X is opened? Kinda like autoprofiles for xpadder.

Is there any way to disable the ALT + F4 hotkey on the controller? It's killed a few games for me.

Do those games have a native controller support? If so just remove that app from the app list in the XBStart settings. Or do not press Y.

Good day, I have an application to the author of a small request. I'd like to reassign the button "back +" option in the "guide +".
The fact that the button "back" is responsible for all gaming applications for opening map (Assasin's creed unity, farc cry 4, etc) and a combination of "back" is just do not have time to take a screenshot.
Thank you very much for your understanding and sorry for my bad English.

To be honest XBStart wasn't supposed to be used in any app with a native controller support, because of that kind of result as you describing. Swapping a global button trigger from BACK to GUIDE is theoretically possible, but that would require extending the GUIDE button holding time when you want to turn off the controller, I don't know if it's ok for the rest of the users.

Implement the ability to take screenshots without resorting to the keyboard - very helpful. Otherwise, I have to use additional software to all the same to take a screenshot from the game. Especially, pressing the guide+ will be faster than three seconds to turn off the controller.
By the way, 4 dualshock controller shutdown occurs through the guide + start (fast and uncomplicated).
If you make such a possibility (guide +), I think many will be glad in addition to what you have already done. It will be gorgeous. Thank you.

Ok, I'll think about swapping the back button with the guide button, but first I need to finish building my trackball controller prototype. It’s my main priority at the moment.

Hey,

 

awesome work with XBstart, i´m using it alot. 

 

But i have one Probleme, its perfect that you can deactivate xbstart while beeing in steam big picture Mode, so it doesnt interfere with steam options, but once i start a game xbstart blocks the buttion option for steam music, ingame chat and so on.  

 

Is there a way around that so i can use xbstart and it will turn off once in a steam game?

To be honest I never use in game overlay and have it disabled in steam. I will try to find a solution for that problem.
