XIM APEX BETA [Firmware 20181013]
« on: 03:35 PM - 10/13/18 »
UPDATE: This build is obsolete. Please upgrade to latest here.

This is an updated experimental BETA firmware build designed to address the Fortnite disconnect issue. You are encouraged to install even if you don't play Fortnite in order to provide additional testing.

Download (PC): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181013-PC-BETA.exe
Download (Mac): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181013-Mac-BETA.zip

Known Fortnite issue: There have been reports that digital (keyboard) player movement isn't as precise. This build is the start of working to improve that and your feedback is important.

Please leave your feedback here and let us know:

1) Do you get disconnects, if so, how often and how far into the game do you get?
2) How does player control feel to you?
3) Does it feel better or worse than the last BETA -- if so, how?

Flash Upgrade Instructions (instructional video):
1. Hold down the button on your XIM APEX
2. Plug your XIM APEX into your computer while continuing to hold the button
3. Wait for your XIM APEX's light to display blue and then release the button
4. Download and run the XIMAPEXFlash tool
5. Select Update Firmware
6. Disconnect your XIM APEX from your computer after the tool completes

Thanks, just let us know if player movement feels more responsive and feels like it drifts less. Of course, if you get any disconnects.

1st of all I played 4 games and I played them without any crash or error.
2nd my aim is pretty nice,I got a win.
3rd for my st fortnite is running without any problem like the old..basicly is better than the old one..is faster in everything I don't know why.
4th my movement is very good I don't see any right or less kicks..I tested in big straight rows and everything is perfect for my st.
Now I have to check black ops 4 to see if I have any problem there.

No kicks!! The diagonal movement is so minimal.
Edit: Tested on Fortnite and Black ops 4, and this version is so much better than the previous. I can barely tell a difference from Beta 13 and the firmware before the fortnite issue started. Amazing work

i didnt try beta 1, but this iteration is 100% better than beta 2. almost no drift.

in beta 2 i noticed when i was changing directions i would carry momentum and sometimes walk off buildings etc. which no longer occurs as far as i can tell. also straight lines were pretty impossible, but that seems to be a lot less of a problem as well. KUDOS!

i will play a bit more and chime back in.

I am having issues when I go to Update Firmware. The window stops responding as soon as I click update firmware.... what can I do? It does recognize the xim and it's a solid blue

I can not hit the target after updating the third trial version?

The game mechanic is very bad compared to the first trial version,

I did not have any problems with the first trial version and I had a smooth and wonderful goal now that I lost that feature with the latest update.

Is there a possibility to return to the first trial version.

That's strange since nothing has changed concerning aim. You can always downgrade and compare.

This is the first beta I tried as I was on stock before and this to me feels better than the original stock.  Running another round now though.

Played for a few hours and this feels great! I didn't notice any drifting this time compared last beta where I would run slightly to the left and just overall felt sluggish.

These experimental builds don't touch aim mechanics at all, nothing has changed on that front.
