Post by: OBsIV on 03:35 PM - 10/13/18
UPDATE: This build is obsolete. Please upgrade to latest here (https://community.xim.tech/index.php?board=95.0).

This is an updated 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 (PC): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181013-PC-BETA.exe

Known Fortnite issue: There have been reports that digital (keyboard) player movement isn't as precise. This build is the start of working to improve that and your feedback is important.

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?
3) Does it feel better or worse than the last BETA -- if so, how?

2. Plug your XIM APEX into your computer while continuing to hold the button
3. Wait for your XIM APEX's light to display blue and then release the button

Thanks, just let us know if player movement feels more responsive and feels like it drifts less. Of course, if you get any disconnects.

1st of all I played 4 games and I played them without any crash or error.
2nd my aim is pretty nice,I got a win.
3rd for my st fortnite is running without any problem like the old..basicly is better than the old one..is faster in everything I don't know why.
4th my movement is very good I don't see any right or less kicks..I tested in big straight rows and everything is perfect for my st.
Now I have to check black ops 4 to see if I have any problem there.

No kicks!! The diagonal movement is so minimal.
Edit: Tested on Fortnite and Black ops 4, and this version is so much better than the previous. I can barely tell a difference from Beta 13 and the firmware before the fortnite issue started. Amazing work

i didnt try beta 1, but this iteration is 100% better than beta 2. almost no drift.

in beta 2 i noticed when i was changing directions i would carry momentum and sometimes walk off buildings etc. which no longer occurs as far as i can tell. also straight lines were pretty impossible, but that seems to be a lot less of a problem as well. KUDOS!

i will play a bit more and chime back in.

I can not hit the target after updating the third trial version?

The game mechanic is very bad compared to the first trial version,

I did not have any problems with the first trial version and I had a smooth and wonderful goal now that I lost that feature with the latest update.

Is there a possibility to return to the first trial version.

That's strange since nothing has changed concerning aim. You can always downgrade and compare.

This is the first beta I tried as I was on stock before and this to me feels better than the original stock.  Running another round now though.

Played for a few hours and this feels great! I didn't notice any drifting this time compared last beta where I would run slightly to the left and just overall felt sluggish.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. It's been very helpful. We will be releasing additional Betas, but, please continue to test this one.

These experimental builds don't touch aim mechanics at all, nothing has changed on that front.

Got in a good 7 rounds I had 1 round where the wasd buttons would stick if I mashed them in some rotational type movements where I would release keys and player would keep moving.  Unplugged apex plugged back in and hasn't happenedv again so appears to be a fluke.  Feeling really good to me I'm going to test a few rounds of pub g and if I don't  pass out black ops 4.
Appreciate your commitment to what you do.  Take care.

Really? That's strange as I don't see any other feedback showing that from others. Is it every game?

Ok given every else's experiences (no kicks) I have another build coming that hopefully will solve it for you.

How long do you have to hold the button down to get the Apex to go blue? I have been holding it down for over 30 seconds, it's just flashing green/blue and never goes solid blue. When I release the button, it is blue, but pulsing. When I try and update firmware it says it's not connected. What am I doing wrong?

never mind, I just need to read the directions properly. you press and hold the button down BEFORE you plug it in

Hey just updated. I was using RML bo4 ST and when I updated I had an AUX to toggle the mouse cursor. It stopped working will this typically make things not work? I read that this really only affects fortnite.
