My guess is it was listed incorrectly as Rainbow Six Quarantine rather than Rainbow Six Extraction.

That's been corrected as of a few days ago and looks to be second in the Game Support list - https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=30363.0

Cool beans!

Looking for an official ST for this game too. I'm surprised it's not on the planned list.

It comes with XBOX game pass, so should have quite a few players for a high quality FPS game from an established franchise.

Will this be supported?

They turned off the Rush 2042 and TDM modes. That is so dumb. How do you turn off a Rush mode in a BF game? It's the most iconic mode after Conquest and so beloved and was one of the better modes in this game.

Also you can shoot armored vehicles with guided rockets, someone on the team just has to spot them with the gadget SOFLAM and then all standard rockets become guided - against choppers or ground vehicles.

...so it is what it is if you like battlefield type games.


and that's exactly what it is no longer without the class system but this hero specialist system. That has nothing to do with Battlefield. This is a miscarriage. The maps are all @#$%, regardless of whether they are 62 or 128 players, they are for the garbage. There are so many development errors in the game that one wonders that a fool has ever played at dice himself. Last capture point on a skyscraper? Really?..and the game has no potential due to the glaring wrong decisions. You can't make chocolate pudding out of @#$% anymore.

Marcus Lehto was asked on twitter what happened to the Battlefield franchise.
"I'm trying to find out for myself right now. Then I want to put things right."

Doesn't want to have his job right now!

I strongly disagree on the maps. I think the Breakthrough 64, Rush maps and Conquest 64 maps are quite fun actually except for a couple exceptions. I wish there were more maps but for the ones we have in those modes there are some great transitions in there going from objective to objective. Nice mix of infantry and vehicular combat. I am primarily infantry only and I am having some great battles. Some maps are better than others. I enjoy those. They took off the final point on the skyscraper weeks ago last I heard. So maybe you haven't played in a while. TDM is a blast.

I was very anti the specialist system at first, and I'd still prefer the old class system back but it's really not as horrific as people are complaining about. I always find myself joining the haters at first, gamers are such huge haters. And gamers hate hate any change. And they often have very good points, but they just give up completely on any change no matter what it is all the time and just really like to @#$% way way too much and never see any positives..

The specialist system is certainly not the end of the world by any means, though it should be tweaked. They can keep specialists but just restrict their loadouts by class. So a recon specialist can only carry recon items. An assault specialist can only carry assault weapons/items. Etc... I think that is where this new guy will take the specialist system because it's not disappearing. In the meantime, it doesn't ruin the game, but can evolve better. There are some cool things specialists can do in different situations actually.

I have checked out Hell Let Loose and may buy it, but it's far more of a simulation war game and far different style than BF games. I have Insurgency and will play it, but it's much smaller scale than BF. I never liked COD games, so really, I'm out of options. Still nothing gives me that experience BF can. Have had quite a few BF moments in this game.

I see a lot of people complaining but they only played the 128 player maps. They actually haven't tried the 64 player maps yet.

I didn't play it the first month but only after the first few patches. It still needs plenty of work (bug fixes, scoreboard, voice chat) and more content but I see a lot of potential in it. I can't find another shooter that has this much potential released in the last year so it is what it is if you like battlefield type games.

I prefer the 64 player modes over the 128 player modes except for times when I have a good squad of four all on mics in a party on Xbox. But usually I'm on the 64 player modes or team deathmatch. I was not having fun when I started out with just the 128 player modes. Discovering 64 player modes helped make the game good for me.

Breakthrough 64 has good maps, the Rush maps are good, the deathmatch maps are fun as fook. I can handle Conguest 128 on a couple maps with a good squad with comms - Conquest 64 is good also with a squad with comms.

I play the Series X so the graphics are acceptable. Nowhere near what they should have been, but good enough to be able to focus on the battles. But find me a game that lets you have these types of shooting battles and get back to me.

this is true about so many things in life, just look at the society around us today.

Don't Look Up is a fun movie on this phenomenon in a way.

General Discussion / Re: Monitor advice for 4k gaming
« on: 08:05 PM - 01/05/22 »
agreed. I just bought a 27" MSI that is 1440p and can run 165hz. It can run 4K at 60hz but I did not care about that. I just wanted 1440p at 120hz for console, with pretty good color reproduction once calibrated for photo editing. Unless you are gaming on big screens, 4K resolution isn't that noticeable. The extra 60 screen refreshes a second can help you in game though, especially when playing pc players with high end rigs on crossplay

The XIM is a fantastic product with a great community with hands-on employees/owners. The only things that are usually bad are limited by the games themselves really - such as turn speed in Halo. These are beyond the control of the XIM crew.

Now just to make the Apex available again :)

If you don't want backlighting but want the nice feel of a mechanical keyboard, look at ducky. Quality keyboards without all the flashy lights with a variety of layouts and sizes and types of switches.

One thing I like on my keyboard are multimedia controls like a volume switcher and easy way to pause and skip tracks. I also want number keys as I use the keyboard on a USB switcher so it's also what I use on my desktop. Do you? It all depends on what you want.

 But if you don't want backlighting, don't pay for it, avoid all the major gaming brands and just get one of the other mechanical keyboard brand machines - Ducky is probably the most well known.

This has happened to me lately. I got a new mouse and changed it from 500 to 1000 polling so I went in and adjusted my BF 2042 profile to reflect this and in the XIM global settings. Then next time I went on to play, it was so so off, I had to adjust the sens again quite a bit in the XIM app. Kept happening. I deleted my BF 2042 profile and recreated it last night, I'll see if it happens again.

My Halo Infinite profile seems to be fine though.

Then, beat time to sell my Xim Apex
I will buy it from you if interested
I'd buy it as well!

Is the xim apex work wireless?

Yes. I use a logitech g pro wireless with mine. Just put the wireless receiver where you would plug in the mouse. They are all USB-A. Same difference.

Returned both Philips today. Keeping the ATH-AD700x.

They just do positional audio the best of the bunch. The soundstage and imaging are both very good, I'm never confused where the sound is coming from whereas with the others sometimes I'm spinning around wondering. Both Phillips are fun to listen to though, they are definitely a more fun sound signature. The X2 were particularly enjoyable at the price, good build quality and very comfy.

I do wish the AD700x had a bit more bass and a little less treble, however they aren't burned in yet and from a bit of research the consensus is that burn in should result in a bit more quantity and quality of bass with a slight taming of the treble.

Maybe I'll get around to getting the wires and running the game audio through my Burson Soloist Amp so I can run my Beyer T-90's through the controller and see how they sound. Or get the entry level Schiit just for that purpose. But for now this is a nice and affordable solution and dedicated solution, always hanging next to my Xbox to grab and play. Using with a ModMic 5.

Unfortunately some controller audio accessories may have problems when used with APEX. One thing that may help is to set APEX's response rate to 125hz, save, then physically reconnect APEX to the console for the change to apply. If this doesn't help then reconnecting APEX without the audio attached then attaching it later once APEX and console are finished starting up may help as well.


Thanks. That is unfortunate. I did try the reconnecting bit but that didnt work. Do I really want to use 125 polling? Is it inferior to 500?
