Firmware 20180402 | Manager 20180402

● Game Framerate Synchronization: A new Config setting under Aim (expand '...' to view) called Synchronize was added. The purpose of this setting is to better align your XIM APEX's operation to the game's input processing loop to improve aiming fidelity. It works at all XIM APEX Response Rates and is available within Expert configuration mode. There are 4 settings you can choose from:

     DefaultThis is the default and is designed to generally work well on all games and matches the behavior of all XIMs prior to XIM APEX.
     CommonIf your game runs at 60fps, try this setting. If switching from Default, divide your sensitivity by 2.
     SlowIf your game runs at 30fps, try this setting. If switching from Default, divide your sensitivity by 4.
     OffDisables synchronization. Use this setting if you prefer to behavior of the retail XIM APEX firmware.
● Smoothing Precision: Mouse smoothing precision improvements. The Smoothing property is available within Expert configuration mode.

● Manager Localization: Manager now includes support for these additional languages: Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), French, Japanese, and Spanish

● Walk speed increased: Keyboard (digital) player walk speed reduced from last build.

● Xbox Party Chat lag FIX: A new setting has been added for Xbox One Configs called Audio Compatibility Mode located under the Identity section (expand '...' to view) within Expert mode. Enable this setting if you are having any audio lag issues while using Party Chat.

● PlayStation 4 mic distortion FIX: Fixes a sound distortion issue with mic usage on PlayStation 4.

● Xbox One Trigger Full Press FIX: Triggers weren't pressing all the way on Xbox One. Triggers now press to 100%.

● Manager decimal value entry FIX: Fixed issue where decimal value entry (such as sensitivity values) could change by .01 upon commit.

● PC Manager missing component startup failure FIX: Fixed issue with Manager startup where on some PCs would fail due to required dependency conflict.
