XIM4 external storage?
« on: 04:23 PM - 12/24/13 »
So one of the things that I keep seeing is the storage limitations of the Xims.

For example - Xim3 does not have enough storage for XIM4 beta.

OBsiv also stated that an ST is huge on the XIM4

OBsiv have you thought about external storage that the customer could add to the XIM4. (I could see this as a weakness bc XIM5, XIM6 etc.. ) Maybe an SD card slot or USB port for flash drives?

Not sure if this was asked previous or touched on.

Thanks in advance.

I suggested an SD card slot on the XIM4 earlier, and someone else mentioned that it would be too much of a security risk. I wouldn't worry about it too much at this point anyway... just wait until we find out more about the hardware specs.


-My Setup-

- XIM3 | Xbox360 Pro 120GB
- XIM4 | XboxOne 1TB (Halo 5 LE Console)
- BenQ G2420HD Monitor (24"/1920x1080/2ms GTG) | *New Logitech G933 Gaming Headset | Logitech Z906 5.1 speakers
- Razer Orbweaver Gaming Keypad | Logitech G310 Gaming Keyboard | Logitech G700/s Wireless Gaming Mouse

yup that would break security so it's a no-no.

however take a moment to consider XIM4, it still has issues but they are less prominent:

- storage the same as Edge, so 16 bundles of STs (that is bundles of hip+ads STs.)
- each set of hip+ads STs let's you do 6 different configs, so a game like BF4 now only consumes 1 bundle of STs and not 3 for instance.
- backup/restore configs. so you can swap them in a minute which makes managing the storage space easy unlike the PITA it would be having to redo configs left and right.



mind you it's still not nearly enough for me but i can be happy. i wasn't with Edge.
soon..

XIM4 has more effective Config storage than XIM3 or Edge.
Get the most out of your XIM APEX, read the XIM APEX Support FAQ.

Yes which is important, this is a big year in gaming. I could be loading up to 3 games this year.
I have a problem with rules and got myself banned. Again.

You forgot the "/s" at the end there.

so is it possible to store the ST files on the phone and switch them from there, then send it to xim just like you would config a ST from your phone and then from there the adjustments are passed on to the adapter? seems like this would allow for more storage.
