I changed my XIM APEX's Response Rate and now my mouse feels really slow.

When you increase your XIM APEX's Response Rate, you are also increasing how often input from your mouse is used. This is why changing this setting makes your mouse feel slower.

If you are switching from 125Hz, update your Sensitivity based on the following:

Multiply Sensitivity by 8 if switching to 1000Hz
Multiply Sensitivity by 4 if switching to 500Hz
Multiply Sensitivity by 2 if switching to 250Hz

My mouse movement feels jittery when using 1000Hz.

When you start using higher Response Rates (like 1000Hz), you may start feeling like your reticle isn't as stable or it's "jittery" at lower aiming speeds. Since your XIM APEX is processing input from your mouse at a much more frequent rate, subtle physical instabilities from your hand and noise from your mouse's sensor is amplified.

The Smoothing setting is designed specifically to reduce these instabilities while still maintaining responsiveness. It is recommended that it is used when choosing to use higher Response Rates. It is also recommended that you use a high-DPI mouse as well for best results.

Audio through my headset on Xbox One sounds garbled or laggy.

Audio through your headset for some games on Xbox One or Xbox One S may sound garbled and/or laggy if you are running at 1000Hz Response Rate. Please reduce to 500Hz.

I configured my XIM APEX but my mouse and keyboard aren't working when connected to my console.

If you have configured your XIM APEX using XIM APEX Manager and you can see your mouse and keyboard input display in XIM APEX Manager but nothing is happening in-game on your console, it's likely that your controller isn't communicating correctly with your XIM APEX. This normally caused by a faulty USB cable between your XIM APEX and controller.

For PS4, the included USB cable with the console is low quality is mainly the cause of this issue. Please try a different micro USB cable.

For Xbox One, if you tried a different USB cable and it is still happening, please check to see if your controller icon is showing up in Manager. If it is, and input still isn't being registered on the console, please hard reboot your Xbox One. You can do so by pressing and holding your Xbox One's power button until your console powers off.

Iím seeing a repeating sequence of red, green, and blue lights quickly over and over when I plug in XIM APEX and itís not working properly.

XIM APEX will verify your Configs at startup. If it detects corruption, it will halt and display this sequence. Corruption will occur if XIM APEX loses power during a save of its Configs/Settings. Updates only last a few seconds and occur when you are saving Config changes.

You must Factory Reset if you have corrupted Configs.

Iím seeing a repeating sequence of red and yellow lights quickly over and over on my XIM APEX and I'm seeing lightning bolts in XIM APEX Manager and nothing is working properly.

If one or more of the peripherals plugged into your XIM APEX is drawing too much power, your XIM APEX will shut down all it's USB port to protect itself from damage. Reduce the amount of power required to operate your devices:

  • Ensure your rechargeable devices are fully charged (controller, mouse, etc.).
  • Disable rumble on your controller if it is still active.
  • Turn off extra lights on your devices.
Iím feeling a delay/lag between when I move my mouse and when the aiming reticule moves on the screen.

XIM APEX is designed for minimum latency. Properly setting up your mouse, game and TV is just as important as properly setting up your XIM APEX.

  • Make sure your in-game sensitivity is set highest (such as ď10-InsaneĒ  or "100%" for CoD and BF).
  • Enable ďGame-ModeĒ on your TV.
  • Make sure your mouse is configured for its maximum-DPI.
  • Make sure your console's video mode matches your TVís optimal resolution.
