Keyboard compatibility question
« on: 12:04 PM - 03/05/18 »
Just received my apex, cant wait to get home from work and get to playing. but i have a question regarding keyboard setup.
i keep seeing posts and instructions saying to make sure the keyboard in bios mode for setup.
My question is..what if my keyboard does not have a bios mode switch? I cant find one anywhere, is this something ill have to enable by plugging it into my pc first?

Keyboard is Blackweb from walmart. Nothing special, but i got it from walmart in case i need to return it.

I don't think blackweb keyboards require BIOS mode. They are marked on the xim4 hardware list as having rollover issues. While pressing multiple keys at once some keys may not be registered.

I got the blackweb keyboard and mouse working great. Haven't noticed any rollover issues either, but im not 100% sure what to look out for if and when rollover happens?

What are the symptoms of rollover?
