After updating, my console doesn't detect the xim4. What I can do?. The same thing happened to me with the previous update. However, in the Xim4 manager it detects all the keys that I touch, just like the mouse

There wasn't anything in these updates that would cause your console to no longer detect your XIM4. Which console?

Are you using a Slim/Pro controller? If so, you need to set the communication method for your controller on your PS4 to "USB wired".

UPDATE: Our latest official retail firmware (https://community.xim.tech/index.php?board=81.0) is no longer being blocked by EPIC.

I am extremely skeptical of this in particular. There is no way Epic Games did not consider the ramifications of their decision to block XIM users - specifically handicapped players prior to releasing their "Fix"; to suddenly end this boycott of XIM users is suspicious at best and to me implies either a larger work around, or an attempt to gather data on XIM users for use in a wave of bans yet to come.
Personally, I like the retail firmware better as it is ironed and clean, but I feel as though with the monetary value of my account literally being on the line it is best to continue to utilize these BETA Builds.

I'd highly suggest that everyone else continue to do the same.

UPDATE: Our latest official retail firmware (https://community.xim.tech/index.php?board=81.0) is no longer being blocked by EPIC. However, we will continue to provide our BETA firmware which unblocked XIM keyboard gamers on Fortnite so we can further refine the technology.

This is an updated experimental BETA firmware build designed to address the Fortnite disconnect issue for keyboard users.

Hi. I haven't updated the XIM4 firmware for over 1 year and I just wanted to know which is the latest stable firmware to update please? the 20181019 Is it this one: XIM4 BETA [FIRMWARE 20181019] (**LATEST**) ?
I only play Call of Duty mainly on PS3 and sometimes PS4. Thank You!

Id stick with the betas guys. Maybe Epic is planning another trap to gather more info on suspicious users. or next time could be a ban permanently. They are obviously gathering information and working on strategies to eliminate people like us. Handicaps and all!

No reason for the retail firmware to all of a sudden miraculously work again on the servers.

Stickin with any new beta that comes out Thanks Obsiv and team for standing behind your product and fighting  .

I've played a bunch with this beta and no issues so far. My aiming still feels a little off; can't get it 100% with/without aim assist. When I say 100% I subjectively refer to before this mess started. Maybe I should go back to the retail release to see if it's just in my head lol.

Hey update here. The new firmware 2019 is working great. But lately for a few days now my xim and everything will lose connection and I will have to re plug everything and it's ok. BUT A BIG WORRY  is lately during gameplay of fortnite I will see it flash an image of keyboard and mouse and say input or something.

Is this gonna be a problem soon?
Just letting y'all know will try to get a screen shot for obsiv

Set Simulate Analog to 100 and see if it disappears.

It looks like Epic hasn't given up on filtering digital input detection, they'll likely use it to migrate m/kb users into appropriate lobbies at some point in time. With Sim Analog at 100, we get the same settings that worked to get into controller lobbies when Fortnite was kicking kb input.

Note that it is NOT Xim detection, but WASD detection. Sim Analog was created to bypass the Fortnite issue.

yes set those to 100
your xim config is only optimized for one specific ingame setting, if you use anything else then this will most likely introduce mouse acceleration and other (unwanted) mouse behaviour
Title: Re: XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181019] (**LATEST**)
Post by: Big416stud on 11:43 AM - 11/15/18
Ok update for ya Obsiv. I turned all the x and y in game to max 100. But the symbol still appears . I know for a fact now that it is detecting it when I use my keyboard buttons to rearrange my inventory. It wont happen everytime but when it does that's when it happens.

I am experimenting and attempting to minimize all usage of  keys on the keyboard itself to mask it. But I am still stuck with the space bar to jump. I will continue trying different things out and let you know if the symbols disappear.

Maybe add a tweak into a new firmware flash that can involve some of the other keys on the physical keyboard as well not just the movement WASD keys?
I hope we can stay ahead of the curve as they recently hired a serious anti cheating team and it looks like they are pretty serious kids. But I have faith in you XIM team.


Side note .
Is anyone else experiencing this problem ? Please chime in, dont just ignore  the symbols until we all get banned in the near future permanently and then it will be all over....
I feel everyone is just happy to be on but we wanna STAY ON.


Cheers.

Post by: OBsIV on 01:21 PM - 11/15/18
If it's based on inventory is it because you are using the stick for that? If so, it may be detecting the speed you are navigating it. Did you say that you tried keys mapped to the DPad?

Also, this is the Beta section for XIM4 -- is this on a XIM4 or APEX?
Title: Re: XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181019] (**LATEST**)
Post by: Big416stud on 05:00 PM - 11/15/18
To clarify I am using xim4 with newest firmware installed. I'm talking strictly on physical keyboard here nothing to do with the console controller itself.

The game is detecting keyboard when I press a key on the keyboard specifically the inventory button which I use the one above the tab. I have tried to switch my keys to different areas on the keyboard. But I am still getting it. It still flashes a symbol with a mouse keyboard and the word input next to it. It doesnt affect game play but it is definitely worrying.

I cant remap everything off the keyboard cause the mouse will only allow a certain number. Crouch Use Space bar WASD all seem to work fine but the inventory is when I believe it's happening. I will come back in a week to confirm my findings. I hope others can try too I'm sure other ppl are seeing this problem.
Title: Re: XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181019] (**LATEST**)
Post by: OBsIV on 05:17 PM - 11/15/18
The suggestion that people have mentioned is to access your inventory using mapped DPad buttons instead.

Post by: Big416stud on 05:32 PM - 11/15/18
So you're suggesting hold the controller nearby plus keyboard plus mouse. For Fortnite? Super fast paced game where every second counts?

How can I be alone on this issue here?

you can bind the dpad in your xim config and use them that way, for example setup a sub config for the inventory that switches your WASD keybinds to dpad keybinds while you are in that menu

though we would appreciate it if you could share more infos about the inventory issue, how fast are you moving your inventory items and does it happen when you do it slowly?

Post by: Big416stud on 06:05 PM - 11/15/18
I'm sorry you totally lost me at sub config.

I only know how to change the settings in the xim app
There is a secondary and primary in the keyboard settings.


I'm not 100 percent the problems lies in just the inventory  button as I tried other buttons still happens. Please explain in layman terms plz what to try next.

I have video and screen shot of it happening. I'm gonna play out tonight see if it happens in other areas of the game.

Still eager try out what you're suggesting.

Title: Re: XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181019] (**LATEST**)
Post by: Od1n on 06:21 PM - 11/15/18
if you still have a free dpad button layout in your secondary bindings then yes use that to bind the dpad to other keys that are more accessible

what i meant is to swipe one more time to the right when being in the ads config to access a new sub config
there you can set the activation key to the inventory key and assign all keys with which you can exit the inventory in the deactivation keys
after that untick inherit button bindings and change the dpad bindings to WASD

Post by: Big416stud on 09:12 PM - 11/15/18
Hello

I have tried all your suggestions Odin. Deactivation ,activation ,max out in game settings,remapping inventory to many different keys and buttons on mouse as well, to no avail. One thing that DID WORK with no detection was if I DIDNT go into inventory mode at all and just used my weapons in the order I picked them up it worked.But as soon as I get into inventory mode and switch my stuff around with WASD keys I get the mouse and keyboard INPUT symbol on screen.

I have been playing for 8 hours now today.i can 100 % confirm the detection is happening when you go into inventory mode. And use the wasd keys. I believe this is being done  because after the new firmware patch obsiv and team masked the wasd movement keys by adding micro movements .

Now they are detecting the movement keys in inventory mode by doing the exact opposite as last time. They are detecting micro movements in inventory mode and the INPUT message appears on screen.

I know this may be all hypothetical and I'm no expert developer or anything. But may I suggest you guys find a fix for the iINVENTORY Mode WASD movements to be linear as retail version but back to new patch 2019 micro movements when you get out of inventory mode??

I hope you understand. Thanks.
I feel the heat is on every minute I'm on and that @#$% symbol pops up when in inventory mode. I dont know if I should stop playing or what?

Post by: Big416stud on 09:14 PM - 11/15/18
I understand the situation and why I'm being detected but I dont understand what you mean in the earlier post when you say I can bund the movement keys WASD to the 4 movement cursor buttons?

Would this be effective for the detection method I'm suggesting they're using currently?
Title: Re: XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181019] (**LATEST**)
Post by: Od1n on 09:19 PM - 11/15/18
thanks for the feedback and its being looked into, tomorrow i will do some investigations by myself

just to be sure, did you try to bind the controller dpad to your WASD for inventory navigation?
This fixed it for other users so far (via the sub config suggestion i mentioned above, i can post a more detailed "how to" if you want to)



edit:
the concept is the following
right now you are basically using the left analog stick to navigate through the menu
you can also use the controllers dpad to do that through, since Fortnite only analyzes the left controller inputs your dpad will be fully fine when bound to the keyboard
aside from that the controller dpad has the same activation behavior as the keyboard so your inputs will not lock you out of the game

a sub config will take care of your inventory, it will basically switch your WASD to the dpad while you are in the inventory and will switch your WASD back to the character movement when you leave the inventory

Ok Mr.Odin sir ,first off  I have managed to successfully playe over 3 hours with no detection . I just didnt touch the inventory mode at all. And had to strategically get a full load out then begin to arrange my weapons by picking up each thing to replace the order the way I needed. Time consuming yes but it is not to bad . I really cant lose my account sir i have so much money and time invested into this game.

Ok so back to the binding WASD keys to the new profile.
Ok so your steps were still a little hard to understand even the second time I'm sorry but I feel I'm may have already done it.


- I swiped right created a new profile

- I then entered into the activation page.

- I click on activation tab and assign activation key to " S"

- I then click advanced and assign deactivation key to "mouse button which is assigned to exit the inventory mode as well.

- I now go to buttons tab and assign the 4 way cursor buttons to W A S D.

- I now go back to activation page and uncheck inherit buttons from primary.

- Save everything and restart my game and application.

Unfortunately the problem still arises when this is done. Have I missed a step somewhere?

Thank you for taking the time to reply to me all day btw.

Hey reporting in for last time before I head to bed.  So I think I got all the settings down and running correctly as to your instructions which took me awhile I apologize.

Ok so it's still happening. Less frequently but still does appear. I see that the activation mode is activated indicated by the flashing yellow light on the xim4 adapter after pressing the button.

There is a problem however, it seems to not activate or register fast enough and I have to press the activation key multiple times sometimes before it will enter inventory mode. Also sometimes it will enter inventory mode right away but will still be detected with the symbol popping up.

I am playing at my normal speed which is pretty fast and fluid.

Inventory + WASD + SPACE BAR + WASD + SPADE BAR to confirm + deactivation button to exit inventory story mode

That's what I'm doing when I'm in the inventory mode.



I'm worried it's still an issue, I will try to adamantly press the activation key and make sure it's on before using the wasd keys to switch my inventory. I'll try it for another day, but I'm worried as every game passes and I get multiple detections in game. Are they gathering data for a mass perma ban ?

Maybe you can get the delay speed to be more instant?

I duno just rambling I'll try tmr and if it's not working I may revert to using the method which is currently working for me. Just dont enter nventory mode at all. I hope we can figure something out .

Good night

Hey, did you unbind your WASD keys from the walking keys in your sub config?
If you didnt do that then you will basicalöy double bind WASD with the dpad and the left analog stick, the problem will still occur then but at a rarer frequency

Other than that your step look ok, i can write a full guide later today if you want to
Title: Re: XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181019] (**LATEST**)
Post by: Big416stud on 09:56 AM - 11/16/18
Omg I didnt unbind the WASD under the Keyboard section of the new sub config. I have just binded them to nothing.

I will continue to try this morning and let you know my results later this evening.

Post by: Big416stud on 11:01 AM - 11/16/18
Hey I'm still getting detected and I know why. The activation profile  isnt happening correctly with the xim4. After I press my assigned activation key the xim flashes red once then yellow once. But none of the applied changes seem to be  active. It's still functioning as the normal configurations on the main config page.

I am sure because I have tried assigning different buttons to see if it's actually happening and its not. I have fiddled with the app since yesterday and cant seem to make it actually work in activation mode in game.

Maybe I missed a step somewhere?
Please thanks

Odin you truly are a God! Sorry I forgot to tick the toggle button as I have never delved this deep into the xim4's capabilities.  It's working like a charm now for over an hour. I highly suggest others hop on this set up as well to avoid future stress.


Thanks again Odin.

no problem man, ofc this workaround is not ideal and its being looked into
theres also a not so small chance that this is a bug and not really intended, so it might be gone with the next fortnite update anyway

Oh man its not over yet. Sorry to continue this... it still shows the input sign sometimes less frequently now. But the super interesting thing is it's doing the exact same thing with my duos partner who uses controller on ps4. And yesterday it seems he just informed me and we tried right now. In inventory mode when we switch our weapons very fast.

I think you may be on to something about this being a bug... will keep on eye on epic forums as well.

Checking out.
Have a great weekend

yes thats what i meant, its not exclusive to xim players
you re the first to report that the dpad switch doesnt work anymore, thanks for letting us know!


another alternative would be to swap sticks for the inventory, so that you switch items with your mouse instead of the keyboard

Do you mean compared to the XIM APEX SAB value? It's 100.

It sounds like your Configs got corrupted. Do you recall unplugging your XIM4 while it was writing itself? You will need to do a Factory Reset of it -- unfortunately you will need to recreate them.

Hi OBsIV,

I haven't used my XIM4 in a while but earlier this week I decided to play with it again. I have the same mouse and keyboard so knew that the setup was working from before. I had the official XIM4Flash-20160405 flash installed but when I set everything up and tried to play I noticed that the mouse and keyboard were not working ingame. I could see the lights registering on the device when I press the button to fire or when I moved the mouse around and I could also hear the sound working but nothing was moving in game. This was via Bluetooth connection to the console.

I read up a little and then decided to update the firmware to the latest beta XIM4Flash-20181019-PC-BETA. I did the flash and tried again but got the same results. I then changed the communication method from Bluetooth to Cable and eventually got the mouse and keyboard working this way. However I now have no sound coming through the Dualshock 4 controller.

I've tried a few times to get the sound working but nothing helps then changed the communication back to Bluetooth and the sound works again however the mouse and keyboard are then not registering again.

On my phone when connecting via Bluetooth, I noticed that the Dualshock is not registering in the XIM4 manager however as I mentioned, I can see the mouse and keyboard are registering on the XIM4 device and can hear sound.

When I change to Cable, the manager then registers the Dualshock controller however as mentioned, I have no sound at all.

Can you assist me with troubleshooting the problem or can you provide me with a solution please.

Regards

Unfortunately XIM4 does not support controller connected chat. A USB chat method can be used when using a v1 controller with the bluetooth communication method. The PS4 can see a limited amount of audio sources which can prevent USB chat when using XIM4 with a v2 controller.

To use controller chat with XIM an APEX with a v2 controller type is needed. To use USB chat with XIM, XIM4 can be used but you must also use a v1 controller type. This type does not have a lightbar built into the touchpad.

There are no changes in development or planned for XIM4 at this time. Is there anything specifically you are looking for?

UPDATE: Our latest official retail firmware (https://community.xim.tech/index.php?board=81.0) is no longer being blocked by EPIC.

I am extremely skeptical of this in particular. There is no way Epic Games did not consider the ramifications of their decision to block XIM users - specifically handicapped players prior to releasing their "Fix"; to suddenly end this boycott of XIM users is suspicious at best and to me implies either a larger work around, or an attempt to gather data on XIM users for use in a wave of bans yet to come.
Personally, I like the retail firmware better as it is ironed and clean, but I feel as though with the monetary value of my account literally being on the line it is best to continue to utilize these BETA Builds.

I'd highly suggest that everyone else continue to do the same.

I'm not up on the situation fully, but the xbox elite controller s2 lets you use software to create a custom curve for the controller sticks. There's other features also, but there needs to be a point made that you either 'block' ALL peripherals other than standard controllers or block nothing imo

No sorry, it's hardcoded to "100" for this firmware for XIM4.
