Just out of curiosity...if I got a basic wireless mouse would the apex work as well as if it was a wired mouse? Just wondering, sorry if that is a noobish question.

Yesterday I made a post about my apex not working, this was because my ps4 controller was 10 years old (or something), once my bf plugged in his newer and updated ps4 controller...it worked no problem. Hope this helps some of the issues with ps4 players.

I wouldn't buy anything just yet, if you're able to acquire access to a regular office mouse or keyboard these would make for a good test.

You could also starting APEX with only the controller attached to the hub then add only the mouse later and check to see if it works under these conditions.

How could i test if the apex is working with only my ps4 controller?

You're using a high power setup and your mouse lighting isn't behaving as expected. I would start by connecting the controller directly to the console for 1 hour to charge. Disable LEDs on your peripherals if possible. If this doesn't help you could try using low power perihperals next that don't have LEDs. You could also attach a power adapter to APEX's hub to supply additional power. APEX accepts this power adapter spec:

5V 3A power adapter  ([3.5mm x 1.35mm], center-positive)
So my best option is to buy a basic m/k? I really hope it works and i didn't buy a faulty apex..  :'(

If your mosue isnt lighting up, it sounds like your peripherals are in the wrong usb hub, triple check it.

Also, follow along this video, should clear up those issues


I followed that video to the dot, connected my usbs in the correct locations (I assume the dots on the hubs were considered 1-2-3....mouse then keyboard then controller according to the video.

You also need to change your controller in your PS4 from Bluetooth to USB.

I did this.

Perhaps I am missing something because my Xim Apex doesn't work with PS4 Overwatch. Pleeease help, the only reason why I got an Apex was to play OW =[

Things I did:

1. Followed the XIM APEX Quick Start Guide to the dot.
2. Downloaded both programs including the flash update and apex manager + updated my ps4 settings to USB connection
3. Connected mouse, controller, and keyboard in correct order.
4. The apex flashed green like in the video (good news)
5. The manager connected me and I was able to set a config for OW (good news)
6. I updated the OW options menu to increase sensitivity to maximum + other config changes according to the website
7. The XIM clearly identifies my keyboard because I was able to set a manual profile (F1) and changed its color to green.

I did all that but my keyboard was unresponsive, my mouse does not light up like when I plug it into a PC...my keyboard does light up and i can set a profile for overwatch...but nothing responds ingame =[

Please help!! I've never used a Xim before and I am not good with tech stuff...=[


Thank you so much, i really appreciate it! Will check out the video...

Is there a guide out there for a complete noob? I bought an apex a few hours ago, but i just realized it's a usb thing, is there a way to use this with a regular mouse to play the sims? what hardware or items are required to use an apex? I would love if someone could link any accessories i might need to get the apex to work with ps4. I bought one because the Xim4 is really expensive on ebay! Thanks for any help!
