XIM APEX BETA [Firmware 20181016]
« on: 05:49 PM - 10/16/18 »
UPDATE: This build is obsolete.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: When using a keyboard for player movement, you may feel slight drift in movement which is currently required to game in your desired playlist.

PRO-TIP: Don't hold down the same directional keys for long periods of time.

Download (PC): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181016-PC-BETA.exe
Download (Mac): Not yet available.

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

Thank you! Any time estimate on the Mac version?

Out of curiosity (and laziness as I haven't looked  :o ), for those who don't want to update their Apex / Xim4 firmware, is it possible to simply select m/kb lobbies in Battle Royale?

As soon as I hear some feedback that positive, I'll go for the Mac version. Sorry about that, but time is limited and I don't want to spend it on building that if the firmware is bust.

All good, no pressure :)  BO4 is keeping us plenty busy.

 13 is excellent for me  :)  Should I keep going to use 13 or test 16 to advance science ?

Unfortunately, no manual option to select it but I think I should be able to plug kbm directly and switch to xim/controller once match starts.  This way it'll place me in their lobby.   I'll try in a bit and let you know.  I just tried 1014 and was still ok with xim.

Awesome to hear it worked well!
Anyone know how I can save my configs from resetting when I update firmware ?

Should I update my configs with my old aiming settings just in the new firmware 16?

wow I feel like this is just going to be an "epic" battle of coding. you create firmware and they create a counter to it.....over and over again.... Epic stopped caring about gamers since unreal 2004 came out and just made engines to make money and now all of a sudden they are the SJWs of shooters?? ????? I guess people with disabilities dont matter to them....

I will install build 1016 and give feed back. Im glad that are so many different builds to go back to just in case too. Thank you OBSV for your hard work and diligence in dealing with this. We all see who really cares about gamers...

Yes, people with disabilities absolutely don't matter to EPIC. They made that loud and clear. What I don't understand why they are doing this when our install based is minuscule compared to theirs. And with that, they took out all our community members with disabilities.
