Should be getting wooting today at some stage mainly purchased due to a new tennis game coming out next week on all platforms and for pc which has full controller support apparently.

Will report if i can get it to work with apex or report back for some help to get it to work with apex.

Nice! If it works I'm definitely going to be getting the Apex and selling my XIM4!

Glad to see this topic is maintaining some momentum, I'd love to see Wooting support on Apex.

Very cool, if it works out, I'd want to add it to our knowledgebase.

I haven't had as much time as i would like today to give the wooting a good grind out but can confirm with the latest firmware (20180501) the wooting works only with that firmware digitally and analogue although analogue will only work with directinput only,  xinput was a non runner for apex but as said not much time for a proper test grind.

Early day's but this will need some muscle memory adjustment and steady fingers for wasd pressure sens and a lot of tinkering for you'r right curve settings.

Here is a short vid in ww2 headquarters with analogue profile 1 default directinput changed from xininput to see what you think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6bv8HkkhOI&feature=youtu.be

Hopefully get some time in for the wooting vid guides later on in the week.

Promising so far but a lot of tinkering to get the right feel after years of just pressing down WASD.

Ps.. once wooting is disconnected from PC the keyboard will go back into digital mode save your set up in onboard memory and hit the mode switch to get the right profile for when it's connected to Xim Apex.

So, confirmed working? If so, happy days!

Would love to see if the dual-activation points also work. I wonder if it's possible to bind separate keys to those actuation depths.

Overall, what's your impression of the Wooting in terms of build quality, keys, switches, software functionality etc?

Thanks for verifying. DirectInput would be the right choice for both digital and analog control.

Not sure how Apex picks up and combines the keyboard and controller input, but you might need to lower your actuation point to 3.6mm to avoid your keyboard input overriding the controller input.

Need to get some proper time in will update eventually, the build quality does feel nice and software is easy to use switches will be interesting over time compared with my corsair cherry reds gotta get my head round it all this coming weekend should be good the wife can watch harry and meghan wedding all day whilst i play  ;)


Yup all good OBsIV digital works straight out of the box with latest firmware dinput for analogue use.

Thanks for verifying. DirectInput would be the right choice for both digital and analog control

Thanks wooting i have been using 3.6mm lots to get to grips with although my main purchase for the WKB is for world tennis tour coming out this week on PC fingers crossed for full controller support.
