XIM APEX BETA [Firmware 20181019]
« on: 11:42 AM - 10/19/18 »
UPDATE: Our latest official retail firmware is no longer being blocked by EPIC. However, we will continue to provide our BETA firmware which unblocked XIM keyboard gamers on Fortnite so we can further refine the technology.

This is an updated experimental BETA firmware build designed to address the Fortnite disconnect issue for keyboard users.

Download (PC): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181019-PC-BETA.exe
Download (Mac): http://cloud.xim.tech/Beta/XIMAPEXFlash-20181019-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

Haven't commented on the last (18) beta but I've used it for a couple of hours. I don't play Fortnite but in BO4 the difference between retail and the beta wasn't even noticeable. Except in the menus where you could see the cursor drift a little. Might give this one a try later tonight.

This firmware will have no effect on anything other than Fortnite. There has been talk to provide a build that works on all games which I'm willing to do and work with everyone to make it generally applicable to all games.

Ok, please give 1019 a try when you can -- I'd like to deprecate 1018.

Keep in mind that this build only changes how Fornite works. I will be creating a version that does this for all games though in the future.
