XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181014] (**LATEST**)
« on: 11:07 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UPDATE: This build is obsolete.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/XIM4Flash-20181014-PC-BETA.exe
Download (Mac): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIM4Flash-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:
1. Hold down the button on your XIM4
2. Plug your XIM4 into your computer while continuing to hold the button
3. Wait for your XIM4's light to display blue and then release the button
4. Download and run the XIM4Flash tool
5. Select Update Firmware
6. Disconnect your XIM4 from your computer after the tool completes

For those having PS4 disconnect issues, this should fix it.

First time poster, posting to provide feedback on the newest BETA 10.14.18:

Utilized the previous update for a couple games last night and worked perfectly without any major issues.
Have now upgraded to the newest update in hopes it fixed the straffing issue - to which it did not, and in reality actually brought seemingly more issues.

BETA 10.12.18 Issues:
- Slight straffing when running/walking/gliding in a straight line, particularly forwards.

BETA 10.14.18 Issues:
- Above mentioned straffing.
- Double clicks on movement keys
- In-accurate/un-intended movement key activation. Ie: When holding/pressing W or S for movement in-game or in any menu the navigation will jump to a side (Unintended A/D movement).
- Movement issue may extend into further key logging issues as I found rare instances where my weapon would not reload, switch to building, or to pickaxe.

However, I am not having any disconnect issues!

Seemingly, the newest update has not brought any improvements merely issues. Despite this feedback, I'd like to give my sincere thank you for promptly developing these changes and this hardware which I use exclusively. I look forward to further improvements and the fight to keep XIM usable in Fortnite PS4.

Ps: Black is not a colour.

Working well for me, no disconnects. Keyboard movement feels better than last build. Definitely playable.

Appreciate the speedy work team!!!

I tried the Mac FW update, no problems to report.

In the first BR game I noticed a slight delay in some movements, but it wasn't a regular occurrence. A few games later and movement felt natural.

Gunplay was fine, no problem putting bullets where I pointed.

Likewise, navigating inventory and menus was more responsive than expected.

Played two games of squads. No kicks, no disconnects. Movement is much improved over previous beta build.

Still slight floaty movements. Not quite as responsive as I'd like but quite playable. Happy Camper here.

Great job.

my community is still experiencing disconnection problems or strange travel but this is not the case for everyone. this last version has to solve problems of controllers that stop and freeze of the xim.

Are you talking about the PS4 disconnection issue? This is solved in this version.

Played for 40 min and no issues.
Thanks to all the devs.

The "guy" did not run to the left nor the right. Just straight.

Thanks again!

It's playable but if you push W or S on inventory or trying to change the character you can see that isn't going straigth, moving to left or right sometimes.  Aim and others functionality working fine at the moment. Thanks for the hard work
