What are these RC builds like in comparison to the XIM4 latest release build? do I need to try these BETA firmwares like how much better are they than my latest XIM4 firmware (Non-BETA)

Let me put it this way. I pretty much led the charge on this drive for alternative firmware do to issues with Aim Assist. I DONOT use any of these and have gone back to XIM4 latest build firmware with an AAA curve set.

One of the biggest problems with any of these firmwares is they won't EVER be upgraded. So any new mice/KB type peripherals that come out post release may not be supported.

I never found any benefit in any of the SA builds as I barely felt AA at high mouse DPI and moderate Xim sensitivity. It's at low DPI (3000-ish) and low Xim sensitivity where AA kicks in.

From memory, RML wanted less AA in the SA builds, but some of them offered more, which is why they've become popular.

AA is a double-edged sword - if you can aim and shoot within the hitbox, it's helpful. However, if you're slightly off-target, AA can become a force-field that's difficult to break into, which is unhelpful.

Long story short - SA builds can be a crutch and require a lot of tweaking of mouse DPI, Xim sens and Ballistics / Boost to nail down. Whether or not that makes any significant difference to your KDR over vanilla firmware is debatable.

Aint that the truth.. I don't waste my time digging thru rubble for body parts anymore. I am so used to barely any AA, that when i play with strong AA curves + low DPI, I feel like COD is unplayable for me. High DPI and fast turning, is everything to me when it comes down to aiming. Everyone has their own style of gaming, if i can not spin 180 with barely any mouse movement, i can not play lol

Hi,

Maybe that someone can help me.

I have download the gold manager version 20160405 on my Mac (http://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=46143.0) and the S3A firmware.exe

And now, I don't now how to have the S3A into my Xim 4. Do I need to launch the Xim manager ? The S3A.exe ? If I launch the Xim Manager, I just have "update" and "factory reset" but no one option to choose the S3A.exe firmware.

Thanks you !

Anyone ?

download this and hit 'factory reset' that will install SA3

http://cloud.xim4.com/Beta/XIM4Flash-20161228-STEADYAIM3.exe

Thanks you ! So the .exe is a flashtool which will install the S3A firmware when I will hit "factory reset" ?

Is yes, I don't understand, because it's written "Use gold" Manager 20160405" BUT the gold manager himself is a flashtool. So we need both ?!

You use one or the other, you can't have both firmwares installed at the same time, each will overwrite the other. The SA firmware is trial firmware testing variations of Steady Aim, hence the recommendation for Advanced Users.

Thanks you.

So, I can just download the S3A.exe, do a factory reset and the S3A firmware will be installed ?

This is not a problem if I have a more recent manager than the gold" Manager 2016040 ? Because in the first page it's written "Steady Aim firmware builds (use "gold" Manager 20160405 with these experimental firmware drops):"

There is 'firmware' then there is the 'manager', the firmware is flashed on to the Xim, the manager is used to 'access' the Xim and it's ST's/settings.

You need to use the "gold" Manager 20160405 to access the Xim when using SA firmware.

Ok, so I will need a PC because I can't have the "gold" Manager 20160405 on my Mac or iOs.

Thanks you, I understand everything now ;)

And how to me sure that the S3A Firmware is installed ? On the Xim manager it will be written "S3A" somewhere ?

Download IOS manager from here: http://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=46144.0
This may also assist you: http://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=42226.0

Check 'About' in the menu dropdown in the manager to check your version, it's been quite a while since I've bothered with these SA FW's, so I don't recall what they display under the FW Version, someone else may be able to answer that.

Unfortunately, I can't install this version on iOs, with the link this is

Updated: Oct 30, 2017
Version: 4.00.20171001
Size: 32.4 MB

But anyway, I have understood everything because of you :) In fact, I was confused because for me, a firmware (the S3A.exe) was different from a flashtool, so I didn't know that I was able to do a factory reset with the firmware directly, as a flash tool.
