Hardware Compatbility / A4tech bloody mouse v7
« on: 10:15 AM - 05/19/18 »
Can anyone offer some advice... Here's the situ.

I bought this macro mouse which has internal memory. The mouse allows for rapid fire and anti recoil (bring on the hate)

For some reason the rapid fire works... I set the interval between shots on the pc software, plug it into the xim apex and hey presto. Rapidfire bang bang bang.

On the other hand anti recoil works sporadically. On the pc I set the mouse to pull down a set number of pixels in the - y direction. I set a delay then this loops. On pc this translates to the mouse moving down smoothly when I shoot.

On xim apex - y movements are only registered every now and then, there doesn't seem to be any consistency.

The bloody mouse software allows you to change the polling between 125, 250, 500 and 1000. I've tried each combi thinking that it's some sort of desync between the mouse talking to the apex.

I've also tried different xim apex polling speeds to little success. I've not tried every combination of mouse/apex polling rates as yet.

Just wondered if I'm barking up the wrong tree all together. No reason why rapidfire works but anti recoil only works sporadically. Maybe those who are titan users may have some secret sauce for me?

Support / [ACTIVE] Xbox controller not working
« on: 02:50 AM - 04/28/18 »
This has happened a few times recently.

I turn on my xbox, with everything connected xim apex wise.

The controller rumbles but the light on the xbox controller does not illuminate. I have no functionality.

When I plug the xbox controller directly into the xbox the light illuminates and works as normal.

This never happened with my xim4.


Xbox one original
Day one xbox controller
Xbox one ~ apex ~ official apex hub ~ mouse g403, wired nav and xbox one controller into ports 1,2 and 3 respectively.

Running ex1 firmware.

Tried hard reset of xbox one... Holding power button for 20 seconds then removing power cable for 30 seconds. Still no joy.

Tried 3 different USB wires to controller.

Still not fixing the issue.

Any help appreciated


Beta / Relationship between apex response time and sync
« on: 04:36 PM - 04/13/18 »
Hi obsiv,

What is the relationship between xim apex response time and framerate synchronisation?

If I set my apex to 1000hz in expert settings am I right in saying the apex attempts to send data to my xbox 1000 times a second?

I have read that the xbox one will accept the 1000hz communication rate.

Now enter framerate synchronisation....

Off = 1000hz I assume? And therefore the apex communicates with xbox one at 1000hz.

Common is for 60fps games... Does choosing this setting mean that the operating speed or the number of times the apex attempts to communicate with the xbox is reduced to 60hz despite the expert setting of 1000hz?

Does framerate synchronisation adjust the operating speed of the apex as set in expert mode?

The latest apex test firmware has removed the boost feature to make way for synchronisation settings. The release apex firmware had boost but I'm 99% sure it didn't work. I found boost useful particularly for rainbow 6 siege when using xim4. Have read that curves can be used to replicate boost (not obvious to me how at present) but perhaps a boost value would be more user friendly. How do you guys feel about the removal of boost?

Take a an ads sense of 30 with no curve.

If I then create a ballistic Curve which goes to 100 on the 5th section of the x axis (5 clicks to the right of the origin) . Would I therefore divide 30 by 10 to get a comparable sensitivity to what I started out with?

Eg 30 ads sense = 3 ads sense with a curve that is 10 times steeper

Sorry if I've not explained this very well.

Game Support / Perfect settings
« on: 03:23 PM - 04/11/18 »
12000 mouse dpi

1000 hz xim apex operating rate

Synchronise set to OFF

No smoothing

No curves

X/Y ratio set to 1

Then use odins method for finding your perfect xim sensitivity - https://youtu.be/rs0sH4rfGRc

If you experience jitter at all do not use smoothing, simply reduce your mouse dpi.

And once you've set all this up, just practice and keep your settings the same to develop that muscle memory.

That's all you need.

By chat issues I mean:

The voice of People in your party cuts in and out, you loose chunks of what they are saying and visa versa.

XIM APEX Discussions / Voice chat cutting out plus more
« on: 04:35 PM - 03/14/18 »

I've been experiencing some issues with my apex. I join an xbox party chat and everything is fine, I'm talking to my friends and they can hear me and I can hear them.

The problem occurs when I start using my mouse and nav. As soon as I do this the voice starts cutting out, I get parts of what they are saying and visa versa.

Another symptom is the controller becomes unresponsive eg the xbox guide button doesn't bring up the xbox dashboard when pressed. This symptom is more sporadic happening every now and then but the voice issue is consistant with moving mouse and using nav. Happens everytime without fail.

When I use the controller on its own (still plugged into apex with all periferals attached) the voice chat is fine.

Things I have tried:

Updated apex and xbox controller firmware
Removed extension cable between apex and hub (thought it was a power issue)
Changed xbox one controller (I have 3)
Change USB connecting controller to apex hub
Changed the USB port the apex is connected to
Tried apex set up on my sons xbox one
Tried a different headset

Non of my trouble shooting has worked. Everything points to either the apex or hub. Unfortunately I do not have another hub to try.

Can someone please help? My xim4 worked perfectly for years using exactly the same hardware. I'm lost. 

Non of the above have solved my issue.

Am I effectively just using a xim4?

Hardware Compatbility / This could save your apex
« on: 02:45 AM - 03/07/18 »
I'm paranoid about the new dongle style apex. I have 2 children that charge around the house and a wife who's constantly tidying up. One of these days I'm going to sit down to an evening of gaming and find the apex on the floor and the USB damaged/snapped.

I've just found this and bought this.... Could potentially save my xim should either the xbox or the apex gets knocked.


Game Support / Has there been a mistake?
« on: 12:59 PM - 03/06/18 »
Just recieved my xim APEX, set up my button configs, logged on to see if there are recommended settings for overwatch on the apex, clicked on apex game support and all I see is old posts about xim4 game settings.

Surely starting fresh would be better. I'm reading posts not sure whether the person posting is talking about xim4 or apex.

Am I missing something here?

XIM APEX Discussions / Obsiv repetitive questions
« on: 11:35 AM - 03/03/18 »
Good evening obsiv,

When you give people settings/options , they will generally want to choose the settings/option that leads to the 'best' outcome or result.

With xim4 it was Best mouse, best keyboard, best dpi to use, best xim sensitivity value range to use, best mouse polling rate, hard mouse mat vs soft mouse mat. These discussions were done to death in these forums.

With the release of the apex and added functionality/settings like smoothing and operating frequency,  I wondered if you would consider answering (and pinning/sticking your official recommendations some where) just to prevent the repetitive forum posts?

Just a thought.

Love you

Hardware Compatbility / Sony nav vs joycon

Any long time nav users made the switch (get it?) to joycon. Thoughts?

XIM APEX Discussions / Xim4 UK sold
« on: 01:43 PM - 02/20/18 »
Of anyone in the UK is looking to sell their xim4 on ebay, mine just sold for 127.

Hopefully the apex will be out soon and that the UK distributor sells at a comparable price to the US retail price.
