Is it true hori tac users are experiencing getting kicked?
Yes. Thatís a problem for Epic. Blocking the Tac Pro is like Forza blocking a steering wheel. Hori and Sony will force changes.

Just got done playing for about 4 hours and had no idea this was happening...

Can confirm analog movement doesn't trigger a kick.
Do you use the g13?

If Epic is going to continue the XIM ban, then Scuff controllers should be banned too.  This is garbage!  I understand no M+KB in a tournament, but the casual gamer should be allowed to use whatever mechanics they want. Super pissed!

Just here to join in on the theatrics.

I've got arthritis (just turned 36, so not THAT old =p) and use a xim & kbm. Tried using a controller today and have to put it down about the same time the kicks go through...it's almost crippling.

I'm still within my return window with the retailer but will not be using that option. Thanks for the product...good luck with the workaround!

Oh...and I have one lifetime win on fortnite. Much win, such advantage.

I use a G13 with G502 mouse both connected to the XIM Apex and that connected to USB port 1 on Titan and the Titan 2 connected to the xbox.

It kicks me out. So I don't think the G13 works as well or at least registers it as a keyboard.

Are you using the analog stick for movement?

Not trying to be pushy but do you have a eta until theres a fix or still trying to find one?

I have a couple of questions.

1. Would anyone here really be opposed to still using their XIM and playing in PC lobbies? I'm sure as hell not. PC players are way better though with better graphics settings, but it's more of a level playing field.

2. Have people been getting kicked from Solo matches? Or have they been getting put into PC lobbies instead? Not sure if there's a way to tell. If they're able to detect XIM, Epic will definitely need to figure out a way to put XIM users with PC lobbies, instead of having to plug in native M+K, unplug it, and plug in XIM.

I for one am willing to play in PC lobbies still using my XIM, but I'm not willing to go through the hassle of switching out input devices every single damned match.

Also, I don't like native m+k controls. I've gotten so used to building with builder pro + my mouse. There is no way to replicate this with native controls. I've gotten so used to this combination that I don't think I can unlearn it.

I'm in the same boat. Hooked mine up to the PC tonight and won my first game. It feels so weird after playing 6 months on xbox
