I hope that question makes sense.

I'd like to help with the Beta but I have a XIM3, will the smart translators you have for the XIM4 Beta function on the XIM3 provided we use the Cronus device to bridge the gap?

Please don't start a device hate speech, it's only being used as a means to connect my XIM3 to the X1 while we wait for XIM4

If I can't help it's not a big deal, just a random thought I had.  I know nothing of what it would take to allow those STs to function on the XIM3 even if just for the beta

Thanks for the answer, I'll just need to be patient.

Yeah, and Edge will only get them as part of the beta release, which will have a finite timespan, so we'll all need XIM4 anyway.

Its been answered a million times.

XIM3 will not be a part of the beta...the STs or be in any way associated with next gen.

I mean it has been made pretty clear.

So here's my situation (and others seem to be in the same sinking boat). I have the XIM3 so I'm screwed on the beta. I really want to play Titanfall but lack of updates from Ob regarding a Q1 target and no beta in play yet for XIM4 points to this not happening. My only option would be using a Cronus Max with my XIM3. I'm not jumping ship and will buy the XIM4 the second it's out. Hell, even have to pay an extra $60 just to get a Cronus Max to keep using my XIM3.

So what would be nice to see is an update on the timeline. If XIM4 won't be out by Titanfall then let us know ASAP so we can plan accordingly. From there we have a dedicated topic for Cronus Max/XIM3 users on getting Titanfall to work.

I'd really like to give a timeline to you but I just can't right now. The hardware is going under final review over the next 2 weeks. Assuming that's all fine, enclosure is next (which won't take as long as everyone thinks here).

The beta is dependent on bugs the Alpha testers are finding. As soon as this last BT adapter issue is fixed, the beta is on. We get extra hardware on Monday to help figure out this last issue.

Thanks ObsIV, and correct me if I'm wrong, the only "official" timeline that's been posted during this entire project was a Q1 release.

What is different about building an enclosure this time compared to last time with XIM3. Last time it took fooooorrreeeevvverr to get it done and ready for launch.

Just a thought but can you tell the settings for creating a manual config from the next gen smart config?
 Manual configs can work well so thought xim3 users with.chronus could get settings from the smart config to create a manual one. Hope this makes sense at least until xim4 us out

It'll be the third time they've done it though so they have more experience :)
I have a problem with rules and got myself banned. Again.

There is only one option!
