Title: XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181012]
Post by: OBsIV on 03:30 PM - 10/12/18
UPDATE: This build is obsolete. Please upgrade to latest here (https://community.xim.tech/index.php?board=77.0).

This is an experimental BETA firmware build designed to address the Fortnite disconnect issue. You are encouraged to install even if you don't play Fortnite in order to provide additional testing.

Download: http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIM4Flash-20181012-PC-BETA.exe

Known Fortnite issue: There have been reports that digital (keyboard) player movement isn't as precise. We will be providing future builds in order to tune the system.

Please leave your feedback here and let us know:

1) Do you get disconnects, if so, how often and how far into the game do you get?
2) How does player control feel to you?

A PC is required to upgrade your XIM4 (a Mac flash tool will be provided at a later date).

Flash Upgrade Instructions:
1. Hold down the button on your XIM4
2. Plug your XIM4 into your computer while continuing to hold the button
3. Wait for your XIM4's light to display blue and then release the button
4. Download and run the XIM4Flash tool
5. Select Update Firmware
6. Disconnect your XIM4 from your computer after the tool completes

Thanks for the BETA firmware well done guys  ;D

Played a couple of games now and seems to be working i.e. no kicks. However I have found that when my Cronusmax plus is also connected it doesn't recognise my keyboard?? But seems to work if I disconnect and reconnect within the game.


Many thanks.

What devices being used?

Post by: aimology on 06:13 PM - 10/12/18
Works...

Played a full round of soaring 50ís. No issues.

Hold xim4 plug into laptop
Blue let go
Back up config
Update firmware.
Unplug xim
Replugged in, restore config/binds

Turn on PS4 - add hardware - play full round no issues

Only thing that seemed off is strafing left and right. Feels like heís sliding slightly. Nothing horrible

Aim is still 101

Thanks

Hi to everyone!

for me worked fine the first time I played with the new firmware (just played once)...

It felt a little funny the menu where you fix your bag and arrange the weapons. It was a little slower than normal...

I think the "fast tapping" doesnt works.

Everything else just perfect...

PS4
Razer Tartarus
Razer Deathadder

Thanks for the quick response... hope you guys can give us the tools we will need in the next upgrades Fortnite will do. I think this it wont be the last time we will need a new firmware.

Best!!!!

In this case, no. The changes for Fortnite wouldn't apply to those games you are playing.

Hey guys, first time posting on the site. I have spent many hours gathering a bunch of useful information on the forums over the months though. I am having trouble downloading the beta firmware. I have followed the steps Obsiv has posted for downloading and using the flash tool. I am encountering an issue when the flash tool is open and I click to update firmware it is telling me a xim4 device isn't detected. I have tried 3 different usb cords that can plug into the "c" outlet and I am always holding down the "p" button when plugging the xim4 into the PC. I can't seem to find anyone else having this issue, hoping it is not a hardware issue. Also, when the xim4 is connected to the PC it gives me the blue light as needed.Thanks for all the support!

You both are unable to upgrade? Have you tried different ports on your PC and if you have access to another PC that would help isolate the problem.

Hmm doesn't look like my first reply showed up sending it again. Sorry if it shows as a double. Updated Firmware and no longer kicks me but now it locks up as in I have no response from controls. If I unplug the xim4 and plug it back in while in game I get control back. This seems to happen about the same time as when I would get kicked a few min in. This also happened a second time later in the same round and that time the xim was dark no lights.

If your XIM is going dark it means it means there is a connection problem with your console and your XIM. Have you tried a different USB cable?

Yes, the I have tried all 3 ports. I will try my older PC now and see if that works. Thaks for the support, you guys go above and beyond!!


Update, the Dino PC ended up working. Thanks again. I will post the results in a bit!

So I just updated the firmware for my xim4 and I do not get kicked out of my games anymore, however, maybe 5 to 10 minutes in the game, my mouse and keyboard do not function anymore.

The xim4 light is still solid red and my g502 and logitech are still on. I have to unplug my xim from my ps4 and plug it back it for it to work again. I tried using other usb cables as well.  :(

Yes tried another cable same result. It does not go dark every time but did once. Also I have noticed the ps4 controller has turned off as well when this happens.

Adding: Just a thought. This seems to happen at the same time into the game as when I would get kicked before. Unplug and re-plug fixes it. This has happened again later in some longer rounds. Perhaps the game is polling looking for xim4 and even though it can't kick me it is somehow locking up controls. Probably polls again later in a round and does it again. Just a thought.

Your XIM4 will turn off if it no longer sees communication occurring over USB. I don't believe this would be caused by the new firmware update, but, you could check by downgrading. I'd backup your Configs first.

Yup. No change. Didn't start having this problem until xim firmware update. Before I updated I would just get kicked from game with the unplug your gamepad, keyboard, or mouse. message but controls still worked fine. I'm done for tonight I'll try firmware downgrade and maybe reinstall it again tomorrow. Thanks for all you do and the fast response to the issue with a beta. I'm sure you all will figure it out.

Hi guys, I've tried the new beta firmware and so far no kicks, but the controls are now very clunky.

It used to be just perfect before Epic started to mess with our beloved xim   

Below my feedback:

It will either tilt to the sides(constantly), you cannot run in a straight line anymore, and this also affects aiming when moving and aiming of course, constantly having to over-correct.

Also, movement now is very unresponsive, either it will have a delay in responding fully, or its just slow (with auto-sprint on ofc, sometimes it will not sprint but just walk instead) This feels like, when you dont fully engage the analog stick to the max value and your character in game moves based of the pressure applied to the left analog stick.

Hope you understood what i tried to describe above, and keep up the awesome work you guys are doing for us :)

Xim4- Beta Firmware
G502
Microsoft Wireless KB

Just ran one match but finished fine. 12 Minutes

Movement did feel a bit weird. Almost like aim assist was kicking in now and then but it wasn't bad. Might have just been from running Black Ops 4 all day.

Post by: OBsIV on 10:29 PM - 10/12/18
Yes I understand. It's going to take a couple builds to tune this. XIM APEX already models it's  stick behavior to match that of an actual controller in use. But it did so while prioritizing keyboard reponsivness which reduced realism. When this Fortnite change dropped, in order to unblock I turned the dial on this way the other way (which is why you are able game now). It's now going to be a matter of working together with the community on dialing it back slowly the other way. Another drop for XIM APEX will be available tomorrow.

That's expected, first and foremost we want to make sure things are working. Then we will work on the way it moves.

Disconnecting from machine, not match

I am using a Xim4 on PS4 Pro with a Razer Deathadder 2013 and a Logitech G13 and the controller keeps disconnecting.  When it works, it works flawlessly.  It reminds of the disconnects I used to experience before loading the firmware to make it compatible from PS4 to PS4 Pro.  I have my setting for control connectivity to be wired usb.  Any suggestions?

To get it to work again I have to unplug the controller and PS4 from the xim4, resync it via the PS button. Then plug the controller again and then the xim4 to the console and then press connect on android smart phone and it will reconnect with the playstation jumping to the user account and confirming my user.  Total disconnect time is 30 seconds to a minute.

Is the player model supposed to run in a zig zag or consistently to the right by himself also?

i have a feedback! So i played solos. the game lasted 20 minutes. Every 6-8 min (1/3 of the game) my controls just freezes. i cant control my caracter via keyboard or mouse. it just moves itself and mouse movement is locked so it contantly goes in a circle movement. i solved it by disconnecting my xim4 then plug it back in again. it would be unfortunately to do this in a middle of a fight but it takes 10 sec to get back and it is very unlikely to happen in a fight. happend to me when i was looting. but other than that its great! Thanks for the great and fast support by the xim team! oh and everyone talks about the movement bug.. well its not too bad.

I played 11 games with the new firmware.
- i had zero kick.
- the WASD moves feels a bit sluggish (try to spam [ A ] and [ S ]).
- the aiming is OK,  i felt no changes.

Thank you Xim Team, you are the best.

Having the same problem. Never had this issue before i updated to the new firmware.

Some additional info:
-Using ps4 pro
-Whenever my controlls freeze, all the input from keyboard and the controller will be received in the manager app

Any solution to this particular problem?

Same exact problem that I have. I don't know, maybe it's because I'm using a ps4 pro controller with a normal ps4?

Installed new firmware 20181012
Played for 3 hours, no kicks.
Noticed a bit of pulling towards left/right, but nothing I can't get used to.

Did have 1 game where the xim disconnected from xbox. (xim flashed yellow and controller turned off, battery was full)
Had to reconnect controller and xim, continued the game, no futher issues.
Overall great job you guys!

First sorry for my bad english...

Hi its my first post here, i had read all of you for the problems with the xim 4, i download and applicate the new firmware for this it's ok, ( For player who is not ok i think u just take the wrong hole on the xim 4, its the little one ... ) but in game my heroes go in the left or in the right, and i have another problems, every 4-6 min my Xim 4 disconnect, not only in game it's disconnecting on the menu to. So i tried to understand the problems, and i saw my controller and the light is no blue or red, there is no light, and before the firmware the light is always in a colors, so i think the controller is not ok with the firmware maybe because the dev take the firmware on the xim apex ?
maybe this could help the xim poeple.

I hope this could be done :P

Thanks for your reactivity you make a great job's for the moment !!

We are investigating the issues on XIM4 -- these aren't happening on XIM APEX. First and foremost the PS4 disconnect issues is top priority for XIM4.

I already had these disconnections issues with the controller when i upgraded a firmware before.
I think this kind of bug happens on PS4 pro.
I fixed it when i plugged the Xim4 on the USB port located at the back of the PS4 pro and i changed the USB cable from my controller.
Can you guys try to plug it on the back USB port and change your usb cable then tell if the issue persists ?

I disagree with your statement. 
I have had a PS4 pro since last year, and used the Xim4 on it.  Have never had a disconnect issue until this new firmware to combat Epics fotnite disconnect code.

So, downloaded the new firmware for the XIM4 and all I can say is... thanks. You guys were fast and the update has resolved the kick issue completely so far. ( about an hour) Duos and squads. Plays really well and is pretty much like before will keep playing and report and update. Thanks again, you guys are awesome :-)  ;D :o ;D

Updated to latest beta firmware. Having the "disconnect issue" with the xim4. Some more details...

Happens in all games and the ps4 menu. Regardless of the activity Xim4 loses all input to the console every 10ish minutes. Ps4 still registers the controller as connected and xim app manager shows all the key presses however that's where the disconnect is occuring.

I'm on a PS4 pro, mechanical keyboard and g502.

Thanks for the hard work at this guys.

I have the same issue with the new Beta firmware I wont get kicked from the game but periodically about every 10 min everything freezes all lights are on in normal fashion on both xim4 and controller i just start running in a circle and will need to unplug the Xim4 and plug it back in.. This is not limited to in-game this also happens on the PS4 pro end where i lose all functionality while navigating through the dashboard.

Do you mean creating a new game config?  Or edit an existing one and save it?  If so, I have not tried that.  Just used my existing individual game setups.

Ok the reason I ask this is because XIM4 had an issue where if you flash memory (config save, new Config) at just the wrong time then XIM4 will a PS4 authentication demand and later you'll see exactly what's being reported here. I'm not saying that's what's going on for everyone, but if you are saving a lot while plugged into your PS4, there is a higher chance of this happening.

Has anyone had an issue where you did no saving at all after plugging your XIM4 into.your PS4?

I haven't saved or changed a thing and still freezes every 10 minutes or so and need to unplug and re-plug it back constantly.

No kicks

But

Keyboard movement feels slow and unresponsive. Always moving at an angle too..

I also get times where my xim4 will freeze up and just spin me in a circle... I have to reconnect. Edit- Iím finding this happens every 10 minutes, even when Iím not playing. I have not saved a new configuration since the firmware update.

The Firmware running good without being kicked, but the keyboard canít auto connect so we have to unplug and then plug the cable ( keyboard cable into xim4 ) so xim4 can detect it. Before firmware update , the keyboard automatically connect to the xim4 . Is there any solutions? Because it can damage the xim4 if we keep doing that

So i think i understand why the xim4 disconnected in game..

First i downgrad the xim 4, i tried with the old firmware, 3 min in game and i was kicked. But when i plug the xim4, he don't ask me to choose my profils PS4, choose my account ...

and i updated the firmware with a reset factory and without reset factory, and i was disconnecting in 4-5 min in game. But when i plug the xim 4 he ask me to choose my account PS4, and before the firmware he don't ask me, so it think the controller disconnect when i plug the xim 4, so in 5 min the XIM 4 is freezing. I think here is the problems, if the controller stay on, the xim 4 don't disconnected anymore or don't freeze anymore..

Can you answer me pls ?

No disconnecting in game because of epic games this is ok

i play with asus cerberus and a razor deathadder on PS4

To everyone having these disconnect issues, make sure when you plug the xim into your pc make sure the Xbox power is fully off and remove the plug from the wall, also remove the mouse and kb from the xim, also before you upgrade your firmware back your old profiles/configurations then go ahead and update firmware after you update firmware restore your old profiles/configs that you saved to your desktop or download folder and thatís it u plug it after it tells you to. Plug in your kB and mouse and controller before turning the Xbox on
