XIM APEX & Fortnite
« on: 08:30 PM - 01/27/18 »
Did any alpha tester try out xim apex with Fortnite - can you post gameplay video if possible? Really excited to own my first xim..

I recently bought Titan one and tried using mouse and keyboard to play Fortnite but was really disappointed.

Yeah, the Titan is good for scripting and macros but not for input translation. XIM is king in that regard as its smart translator system is the only thing on the market that gives 1:1 mouse input with every supported game.

Lots of people use XIM4 with Fortnite, so it shouldn’t be hard to come by examples. Apex provides the same input translation but does feel better due to polling at 1000hz. That doesn’t really translate into video though so XIM4 Fortnite footage should give you a good idea of what to expect.

I tried Apex in Fortnite, it was fine. I wasn't completely happy with the aiming mechanics, but that's the game, not the Xim.

I am not clear on how the setup will be if I use both - PS4<- Titan one <- xim apex <- mouse and keyboard

Will Titan one slow down xim apex or no? Also is there a predefined button mapping available in the app

Mapping buttons in a Xim ST is dead easy and only takes a minute or two using the mobile app.

Titan One can ping at 1ms too. Controller lag won't be an issue, but the game engine isn't as snappy as CoD or BF.
