If I buy a wireless XBOX one controller does it come with a bluetooth dongle/adapter please ?
It depends on which version you buy. There is a boxed version that has "For PC" in its name that comes with a dongle. The normal Xbox controllers do not but you can use any BT dongle AFAIK.
Hmm...I've seen one that comes with 1 controller , 2 battery packs , and one vs2851 twin docking station, but it does not say much else apart from its for XBOX One and Windows 10 .
OK well I got the Controller ...USB works just fine but connecting it via bluetooth seems a little pfft
What happens when you pair the controller to the PC? What goes pfft about it?
I use a DS4 via bluetooth just fine with my PC, the software makes it masquerade as an Xbox controller, it would be ironic if an Xbox wireless controller performed worse.
Well the pc shows the controller as paired / connected but thats about it , are there steps I should take and steps I shouldnt bother with, My gaol is to use the controller wirelessly for one or two games thats all I want to do
What shows in Game Controllers/Set up USB Game Controllers in Windows?
What controllers does it list? Does the Properties test respond to input?
USB Connection isnt the issue with the Conrtoller , it's the wirless connection that's the issue ....and I think I'm not gonna take 2 or 3 days to try and set it up....just gonna stick with USB.
Install the app from the windows store, it will probably want a firmware update.
is the app the " xbox accessories " app ?
Think so, you already done it?
well it seems i have that already...but lol..it says it can only configure for the elite controller
When your connect it via the usb and launch the app it should give you an update it did for my black Bluetooth one.
Nope , its annoying me now lol
