Should i update my XIM apex to latest firmware?
« on: 02:48 PM - 04/11/20 »
Iím using the older firmware from August 2019 and it still feels good, but i see that thereís new firmware for March 2020. Should I update or just stick with the old firmware which still feels good. The only game I play is Overwatch

For Overwatch it doesnt introduce any changes, for other games it added better micro movements on PS4. So once you plan to play different games then id definitely consider it :).

What games does it add better micro movements for? I might have the games I just dont play them. I am still interested in which games received changes tho

If you're on PS4, try installing the Xbox One ST and see if it feels any better. Keep your existing PS4 ST, just in case you don't like the Xbox one.

In the end, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! If you find that you don't like the new PS4 ST and want to revert to the old FW, you'll lose your old ST as only the newest ST installs via a Factory Reset or Restore.

So is it possible i need this? I havnt updated to new firmware an on fortnite i notice no matter what settings on exponential my mouse feels delayed when just couple days ago felt fine an responsive? Could also possibly be fortnite changed things but i wouldnt think so. Even 1000hz off sync an or default feel slugish when just recently they felt good an responsive. This game seems to be a big headache for the xim product

If it only happened in the last day or two, it has nothing to do with XIM and everything to do with Fortnite. The most likely explanation will always be network lag.
