    I'm wondering what success stories this group has with specific gamepad controllers. There are a lot of knockoffs out there, and I'm curious if that has come up to bite anyone. Links to ones you use would be wildly helpful. We have been using Mimic on a tripod, but have not dipped into the gamepad arena yet. Any info is appreciated.

    Hi Dave, I bought a new controller from Amazon last week and just can´t get it to work. I tried both v1.5 and v2.0 beta on mimic / Movi Pro. The controller did never see a real PS4 but I tried using it with Steam on my PC and it worked just fine. So controller and the USB-C to micro A cable work properly.

    My next step ist trying the same procedure with an older first generation controller form a friend and see if that will help.

    Ok, so I purchased a Sony OE Dualshock 4 controller. Doesn't come with a charging cable, and so far every micro USB cable I have will not charge the controller. Anyone have luck with chargers for PS4 controller?

    Even went to the effort of purchasing an official PS4 charging cable. When I plug the controller into the micro USB cable, nothing happens. Anyone have any ideas?

    I have some good news for everyone struggling to get their PS4 Controller to work with MIMIC. So at first I bought a brand new PS4 Controller from Amazone (Germany) and it just did not work. Then I went through all the forum posts and read a post about how news controllers not connecting. So I went out to facebook and asked for someone with a first gen PS4 controller who then get´s my new one in exchange. And? There you go it worked perfectly! I´m using the amazon basic USB micro - USB C Cable but I also found a way of using a Micro USB Y-Cable + USB A - C, to charge the mimic while connected to the controller. If you are interested I can post the Link to the cables I use or make a little video showing the setup. I also use a smartphone adapter for the PS4 controller to mount the Mimic. P.S: sorry my english might not be the best ;)

    Jannick, thank you very much for your input. I would very much be interested in links to cables, and a small video if you're willing. Thank you!

    Jannick thanks for the tip of the first gen of the PS4 controller.
    I get a used first gen and worked perfectly. I have Blackjack firmware.
    The man in the shop told me that the first gen controllers have in black the two littles buttons , “share” and “options”.
    Second gen are grey.
