XIM4 BETA [Firmware 20181019] (**LATEST**)
« on: 12:56 PM - 10/20/18 »
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.

After updating, my console doesn't detect the xim4. What I can do?. The same thing happened to me with the previous update. However, in the Xim4 manager it detects all the keys that I touch, just like the mouse

There wasn't anything in these updates that would cause your console to no longer detect your XIM4. Which console?

Are you using a Slim/Pro controller? If so, you need to set the communication method for your controller on your PS4 to "USB wired".

UPDATE: Our latest official retail firmware is no longer being blocked by EPIC.

I am extremely skeptical of this in particular. There is no way Epic Games did not consider the ramifications of their decision to block XIM users - specifically handicapped players prior to releasing their "Fix"; to suddenly end this boycott of XIM users is suspicious at best and to me implies either a larger work around, or an attempt to gather data on XIM users for use in a wave of bans yet to come.
Personally, I like the retail firmware better as it is ironed and clean, but I feel as though with the monetary value of my account literally being on the line it is best to continue to utilize these BETA Builds.

I'd highly suggest that everyone else continue to do the same.

I can believe it. It's been in my experience that the disabled community are always the last to be considered when it comes to software development.

Thanks everyone for testing out this BETA. Concerning making this official, I'd like to get more feedback and also how this feels in other games too. Another firmware will be released to enable this hopefully this week.
