XIM APEX BETA [Firmware 20181014]
« on: 05:36 PM - 10/14/18 »
UPDATE: This build is obsolete.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 for keyboard users.

ISSUE: If you are using a keyboard for player movement, you may feel slight drift in movement which is currently required to game in your desired playlist.

Download (PC): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181014-PC-BETA.exe
Download (Mac): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181014-Mac-BETA.zip

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

Just things that are important but ideally you won't feel any difference between it and 1013. Thanks.

Iíve noticed that this does not affect Xbox Users or at least me. So, I was wondering is this just related to PlayStation and others? And if so, should Xbox users (in my spot) not download this beta?

Little insight. Iím very familiar with the apex and am active on checking regularly for updates to make sure itís updated.

Thanks.

Are you using a keyboard for WASD movement, or a Nav, JoyCon, G13 etc for analog movement? Analog input for movement is unaffected.

Ok so..I played games and no kicks and crashes..
Movement is very good no drift left and right
Fortnite is playable for sure again with this,almost got a win!
Now I have to test blackout because with yesterday's it was perfect and got 3 wins in row.
I will be right back to tell you.


Tested and everything is optimized perfectly!fortnite and blackout!Now all these are working with cronusmax or they have to update too?

We had one report of being kicked. I wanted to try to address that.

Waited for the Mac version to be available only for it to be too new of a version for my old Mac. If I understand correctly this will be the only version put out. So Iíll have to wait it out until the final template is available for download via app? If possible, a ball park time table of when that will be. Thank you.

i have been having a mouse issue since the first beta update, my mouse will do one of two things, it will either turn off completely and i have to unplug it then re-plug it for it to turn on, and the other problem is that it will drop dpi randomly, and i have to cycle through again till its back on my original dpi setting. is this just me?????


i use a BlackWeb RGB Gaming mouse

thanks a lot, when your mouse is powercycled it will default back to its base dpi level, means you will have to cycle through your dpi profiles again

how often does this happen and is it random?
it also didnt happen with the original xim firmware, right?

I thought 13 was smooth...

I don't notice a difference anymore between when they blocked keyboards and now. Great job!
