NEXUS is a motion controller. APEX is a mouse & keyboard adapter. They're different products with no cross-over between them, except that they both support the same games.
Ok thank you. I was really hoping it would would have that  functionality built in since itís like an apex with a gyroscope built in. Maybe it would add too much ms delay or something with extra code built on top of it or something.

Sorry to hear that. We've been hit with the same global supply issues in the same way as many other companies (which is the reason you can't find an Xbox Series X or PS5). We don't have any plans for a future batch at this time.
Is it changing the 2021 release date for the nexus?
Also can I use the Nexus in place of the Apex?

Thinking more about the battery.

Is the Nexus battery easily replaceable, for when it does fail ?    Not in any way knocking the Nexus here, but batteries always fail and often in a short space of time.

It's an embedded rechargeable LiIon battery -- like other controllers it'll required disassembly to replace. You've had poor performance with controllers with embedded rechargeable batteries? I haven't had that experience (even all the way back to my DS3's). I'd like to learn more so I can understand your experiences with this.

Iím pretty sure heís referring to phone batteries reliably lasting for two years. However, everyoneís phone is always on, battery being drained and refilled repeatedly everyday which wears it down faster than a controller probably would.

T2 and Cronus are allowed in tournaments?

1000Hz won't be possible over wireless but could happen wired. But this wouldn't be something that we could do for release.

Yes, PLEASE allow 1000hz through wired connection. Also, please use usb c instead of micro if possible.

People are able to overlock their controller to 1000hz but only on PC. Itís a true overlock that syncís to PC usb polling rate from what I understand and is a must for rocket league competitive. If you can offer 1000hz without having the user to do some janky stuff, that would be huge!

Lastly, this should be an absolute minimum of $150 if the build quality and feature set is there. Remember, people are buying the Cronus and t2 at $100 and thatís just a controller adding. If you try to cut corners and be stingy and try to reduce the price too low, the product will almost certainly fail/get bad reviews and lead to bad sales.

I get your point and it may already be possible to overclock NEXUS while wired via USB using port drivers, but NEXUS is designed for a specific purpose (wireless motion control) and straying from that purpose is likely to create more problems than it solves.

Xbox, DualShock and DualSense controllers, at least one of which we all own, can already fulfil the suggested purpose for 1ms input via PC or Titan Two (Activision uses T2 in CoD tournaments). NEXUS maybe too, I donít think any of us has tested overclocking it yet.

Targeting a single polling rate on NEXUS ensures consistent performance with Smart Translation and aim assist, which is the objective here. Adding more polling rates will create unpredictability & unreliability and significantly more support & troubleshooting, so I donít see it happening. Iím not OBsIV though, so Iím not speaking on behalf of XIM, but thatíd be my guess if 1000Hz isnít supported.

I also donít see NEXUS being allowed in eSports competitions on console or PC because aiming is vastly superior to a standard controller, so 1000Hz overclocking in the eSports context is probably a moot discussion.

I appreciate the reasoning behind the request, I just donít see NEXUS being allowed under eSports tournament rules, nor any tangible benefit to the core NEXUS experience by offering 1000Hz (jitter, audio and battery life will be problems).

Iím hoping for a 1000hz feature to be toggleable in the software. Maybe under the expert config or something. I donít see the feature being an issue for people like me who like to tinker and whatnot. The apex allows to disable sync and use raw 1000hz input (albeit limited by the console controller itself).
It would be vastly better to have the full 1000hz raw inputs and let us have the extra response time for things like fighting games where thereís no. Also Iím guessing we will have some ability to change or tweak ballistic curves or other settings to our liking, why not let us have the full capability?
It would be a crazy seller as one of the only console controllers that can use the max polling rate available.

Iím almost sure the nexus would absolutely be allowed in tournaments. How could Cronus zen, Cronus max, and Titan 2 be allowed but not this controller? Tournament organizers would check to make sure gyro is deactivated and you are good to go. Just like they check t2/cronus to make sure no scripts are loaded. Super legit and tournament legal advantage. Win win for everyone.

If this can be feature rich, like 1000hz polling, then increase the price and build quality to 150-200 because tournament players would like to use it as well as actual gyro/MnK players.

$100 USD is too low. Please focus on peak build quality and better chips in the controller at an increased cost.

Before someone says it wonít be allowed in tournaments, if the Cronus and T2 are allowed, this will be as well.

Wired with a gyro controller is also a problem. Cable weight and drag inhibits accurate motion aim. Iíve been using a NEXUS for 5 or 6 months. It is viable to use it wired, but cable selection is important.

Ultimately though, NEXUS is designed for and works best wirelessly in shooter games. Consoles arenít designed for 1000Hz input and aim assist doesnít respond well to it. Controller headset audio is also an issue at high polling rates, along with the aforementioned battery life.

I know NEXUS isnít 125Hz, nor is it 1000Hz. Itís set at a polling rate that offers optimal aim performance, great audio, solid battery life and plays very well with aim assist.

If you want 1ms precision in fight games, get a high-end fight stick. NEXUS is a motion controller and wonít offer any benefit over a wired console controller, or an overclocked controller on PC, in non-shooter games.

That makes sense. However, if the nexus would be used purely as a 1000hz input device for mouse and keyboard players, it wouldnít need gyro at that point. So hopefully it can be implemented. Dual purpose controller for whatever play style.

For the 1000hz with gyro, maybe it would be worth it to sacrifice (for some) and use a wire for theoretical optimal connection/response. Thatís exactly what I would do since it would also get rid of a few ms delay being wireless. IMO worthwhile to look into!

Kiss battery life goodbye.

Thatís why I said 1000hz polling on wired connection.

Please consider having 1000hz polling on the Nexus controller. Or at least allow that high of polling when the controller is plugged in or as a software option.

1. Uses the max Xbox poll rate the USB port can handle
2. Uses default PC USB polling
3. Recommended rate of most good gaming mouse
4. Potential better mouse translation if used with MnK
5. Boost your sales because more than controller only players would want it.

Because most current controllers out have a max rate of 125hz, if we enable the 1000hz polling software option, jitter is introduced. If 1000 hz controller polling works then maybe the jitter will go away and there will be no need for using Sync settings as raw input would be 1:1. Also reliance of smoothing, which introduces a small ms worth of delay, wouldnít be needed.

Please consider this for MnK players as well as controller players. Imagine playing a fighting game and your controller has Xbox max polling rate used (1000hz) while the rest of people are stuck on 125hz polling.

Welcome to the community. PUBG doesn't have a Series X|S version. You should use an Xbox One config.

Do you mean Apex Legends?
I use the Xbox one ST and to me thereís a different feel to it and I do worse on the Series X compared to my old Xbox 1 X.

Is there an ST update in the works? Side note, is apex legends the most popular Xim game played? Donít know if there stats anywhere but the form seems to be more flooded with Apex Legends stuff than the other games.

Thank you very much.

Also, Iím not very new to the community. Just a new account because I forgot my old login.

Is it Possible that one of the most popular games to play on Xim just hasnít added a series X ST yet? I find that hard to believe but I can be wrong.

Support / [Q/A] No Series S|X or PS5 Icon problem
« on: 11:10 AM - 08/21/21 »
I have a series x and want to make sure the ST Iím using isnít for the Xbox one.
No matter what I do I only see the Xbox one and a grayed out Xbox 360 icon on the game select.

Iíve tried,
Downloading the latest beta pc firmware and factory resetting the Xim Apex.
Series X reformat and updated the console/controller to latest firmware.
Tried the beta TestFlight Xim app and tried Android Xim app.
Did a ďforce games downloadĒ.
Tried 3 different usb cables.

Nothing worked and Iím using only the new series x console, controller, and nothing else.

I read in another post by a mod that there IS an s|x icon for the new console.

I would like to have it be distinguished so when I switch between my series X and my one X Iíll have the correct ST for each and Iíll be able to tell which one is which in my config.

I play Apex Legends and donít see a s|x on the Apex Legends icon either.

Pictures of what Iím referring to.


Thank you
