Title: Creating the Xim Apex?
Post by: Gevorian on 02:09 PM - 06/12/18
Is there any particular way I could create my own xim apex? I would like to venture into Xim Apex gaming without the hefty price!

I know virtually NOTHING about how this technology works or is created.
But I will wager my other thumb that it would cost you more than $99 in man hours alone (at minimum wage) to make your own.
Then factor in the materials etc.

If you are into gaming, you can't truly believe that $99 is a "hefty" price tag.

Being a high school student with 0 income sucks.

You'll need one part chewing gum, two parts rubber bands and to binge the entire series of MacGyver. The 80s version, not the 2016 rehash.

Once complete, you'll realise that was a complete waste of time and you'll need to save your money to afford a Xim Apex, just like the rest of us.

I suggest you to read some motivational quotes, they actually may give you the power and ability to make your own adapter ..

It'll cost you more than 100 dollars to figure out how to make one yourself.

Only if you are lazy.

Yes, there are two simple steps to making your own XIM APEX.

1. First you have to make $100.
2. Send it to OBsIV

Quick maths questions which takes more time? Making a xim from scratch or making $100

You MIGHT be able to make an original XIM 1 if you wanted to go old school with the ol' Silicon Labs ToolStick, cable and adapter...

Of course those parts would probably cost you 50 bucks. And you would still have to solder it all together, flash the code, etc.

Well, you'd still have to figure out how to update it with your own code to make it work on modern consoles. Then you'll have to create your own configs/translators for each game separately.

But you wouldn't have wireless...

Hm... I think I've still got mine around somewhere.

Agreed. When I first joined this site almost 10 years ago I was a sophomore in highschool just before my first job and I managed to scrounge up the money for the XIM3 at the time. Some of the best money I ever saved and spent! :) Sometimes you just have to make opportunities yourself.
