Title: XIM APEX BETA [Firmware 20181018]
Post by: OBsIV on 10:31 AM - 10/18/18
UPDATE: This build is obsolete.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 for keyboard users.

Download (PC): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181018-PC-BETA.exe
Download (Mac): Not yet available.

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?

Flash Upgrade Instructions (instructional video (https://youtu.be/fYlwNXl-ZGw)):
1. Hold down the button on your XIM APEX
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
4. Download and run the XIMAPEXFlash tool
5. Select Update Firmware

this was meant for 17 i was trying to spell ROBOT 100 times


iron sights
tracking up to 100m 10/10  8)
tracking from 100-150m starts to stutter 8/10  :o
tracking at 200m plus can be done but slowly and often ridicule is all over the place  :-\

i am using
xbox one x
65" 4k tv
xim apex is plugged in to a 3 m usb3 extension (so i can see it when i'm playing and sometimes plug it in to a third party device)
Chroma Gaming Keypad - Razer tartarus V2
Logitech Proteus Spectrum G502 Mouse
fiber connection 900mb down 500mb up

i play alot 24/7

I didn't experience any notable drift and therefore do not understand the bad feedback comment that someone made.I almost didn't download this patch because of that comment and I'm glad I did test this myself overall 8/10 only because I live for those 200m iron sight kill shots.

most importantly I did not use aim assist in this test, aim assist is prominent in fortnite it does change a near miss into a kill shot and snap to target with a ADS click aka quickscope

Because feedback shows that it needs to control better. That's what these builds are focused on.

These betas have nothing to do with right stick turn speed, that's an aim mechanic. These changes are about left stick movement (WASD).

Nor do they account for aim assist, that's a game mechanic. Slower / interpolated strafing speed may help with rotational AA. If movement is more responsive in newer betas, AA may be fractionally reduced, but movement predictability and speed will be improved. The core focus of these betas is to ensure we don't get kicked from Fortnite, not AA.

Understood...just saying that since Epic patch which introduced this kick, I feel there is a slowness in turns.

But all in all, there is no kick and the BETA 18 seems good.(for me at least)

Roger that, but be mindful to separate Xim changes from game changes. Otherwise OBsIV may spend time looking into a slow turning issue in the Xim firmware that doesn't exist.

Just won a disco while screwing around and testing movement the whole time. Probably one of my favorite updates so far. Barely any straffing, or drift verry tight the only tthing i was kind of paranoid of was pretty slow movement when courch straffing but worth it for the rest

Hello. I have not tested any firmware since the kick problem started. The reason is that Iím playing lots of destiny 2 and COD and I donít want my movement to be affected for those games. I also play fortnite everyday but havenít played since the kick problem. My question is: will there be an update that only applies for fortnite and not other games? And also will this last update affect my gameplay on other games?

Iím sorry for the long post but I just made this account today to thank you guys for all the hard work. Thank you OBsIV!

Im pretty sure that this will not affect any other games and its still beneficial to try this out with other games anyway.

Have to concur blind switching 2 apex one with 13 one with 18 and 18 was picked 3 out of 3.  It's just smoother overall.  About to hop on some pubg so I'll let ya know how it does outside fortnite.

I think it might be safer running this over all configs just to prevent other games doing the same thing I know there's reports of pubg supposedly gathering data to put a stop to it.  So you think combining this with wooting adds even more randomness?

Also, Iíve tried doing a clean install through the wizard as well by going to factory settings, still no luck. The setup worked prior to the fornite patch.

a factory restore might be required to downgrade to this firmware, backup your configs with the flashtool before you do that so you can restore them

Hi OBsiV,

so the 1018 runs as well as the 1016.
The felt slide effect is no longer noticeable to me. Maybe it is also due to the whole previous tests :)
The AA is sensibly weakened. Can someone confirm that?

I have just gone back to Firmware (20180501) and tested this out for around 40 mins and I haven't experienced a kick from any game mode. Everything seems to be back to normal for now but what will happen to these betas?

So many changes in such a short time... I've played about 30 min so far on Firmware20180501 and NO kick/boot! However, for whatever reason, the aiming/movement doesn't feel as fluid as yesterday's build firmware 20181018. When I do a 180/360 turn I do not come back to the same starting point... do we need yet another ST? At one point (again so many changes) in the past month or so I was able to come back to the original position on Fortnite within +/- 1 degree... maybe placebo effect but again.. so many changes... I would just like my mouse input to be as close to PC as possible with a 1/1 xy ratio and no aim acceleration etc...

I upgraded to the version on the 16th but I liked the one on the 13th better and I did a back up. When I did so, my configuration saved in the XIM Apex Manager was deleted and when I reconfigured everything exactly the same, with the same DDC and ACM sensitivity, when I move the mouse fast, the XIM APEX flashes in red (I had never done that before).

It's a 2013 razer deathadder, the smoothing is 3, both in DDC and ACM and sensitivities are 100 for DDC and 15 for ACM.

1000Hz
Common ST
DDC 100
ACM 15
Smoothing 3 in both

Does anyone know why this is happening? The configuration is identical and I didn't blink red before.

Your mouse turn speed is faster than the game can process/recognize. There is a setting in the "identity" tab. Click the three buttons and uncheck "notify maximum turn speed" and you won't see the blinking lights again.

Smoothing 3 in both

Does anyone know why this is happening? The configuration is identical and I didn't blink red before.

Fortnite BR

Your mouse turn speed is faster than the game can process/recognize. There is a setting in the "identity" tab. Click the three buttons and uncheck "notify maximum turn speed" and you won't see the blinking lights again.

Where is the identity tab? Sorry but this is my first time with this issue.

Is the identity tab in xim apex manager?

Ok, found, but this never happened to me... is this going to make my get some offsync or how is this issue going to affect my gameplay?

I upgraded to the version on the 16th but I liked the one on the 13th better and I did a back up. When I did so, my configuration saved in the XIM Apex Manager was deleted and when I reconfigured everything exactly the same, with the same DDC and ACM sensitivity, when I move the mouse fast, the XIM APEX flashes in red (I had never done that before).

It's a 2013 razer deathadder, the smoothing is 3, both in DDC and ACM and sensitivities are 100 for DDC and 15 for ACM.

The setting was probably checked before and you didn't know it if you settings are the exact same. Checking the box only disables the notification light on the XIM. Play a few games, I'm guessing it will feel the exact same as before...

The question is rather, why can we suddenly use this version again? Is there more experience for this?

OBsiV any ideas, if it is true?

I don't know if it's linked or not, but some users have made a complaint to Epic because the Hori TAC Pro was kicked. However, it's an official Sony product. It seems to be supported again, so it's perhaps the reason why Xim Gold firmware is again working ?

Epic's detection method definitely roped in other devices, like the Hori Tac Pro. I wouldn't be surprised if it also nabbed some controller players with certain movement styles. Epic was never able to specifically detect XIM. They were just doing some heuristic analysis to see if they thought player movement looked like it was a keyboard versus an analog stick.

I am yet to try the 18 build, but here are my observations so far on the builds so far, I have tried every single of them daily.

In the initial few builds, I did feel significant drift until 14, but I had to keep reducing my sensitivity with every build until 17, for which I had to increase it back up to get to the usual aim movement I have been used to.
The build on 16 felt the smoothest in terms of player movement, sensitivity and aim assist as well.

I will give this one a shot and update soon.

OBsIV and XIM Team, I have no idea what type or sorcery you did it on this Firmware release, remarkable work, we all now the purpose was to give back the keyboard option for all players, specially those who are playing with a disability where analog control is not an option.

It tested this Firmware thoroughly and I can confirm it as an "unfortunate"  side effect:
Improves Aim Assist significantly on Fortnite, like WOoW.

So... Epic tried to kill XIM APEX, they just made it... "stranger" -bad Joker voice impression-

And yeah, I can see XIM users asking for this performance on all games.

Thanks for testing everyone. I have another build (1019) I feel/hope will make it feel even better, but, it's up to you -- let me know and we can stay with 1018 or 1019.

Concerning usage in all games, I can certainly create a build that does't limit to just Fortnite if that's what people are interested in.
