This Beta build is no longer valid, please upgrade to latest.

This latest Beta is a Release Candidate for submission to the Google and Apple App stores and Manager has been upgraded to match the additional requirements those stores now have. Even though no new features have been added since the last Beta (20190119), there have been significant changes to the code base that need thorough testing and validation before release. Please upgrade and provide feedback here.

IMPORTANT: This Beta requires you upgrade both firmware and Manager in order to access all features. Please use the links below.

This is a BETA firmware build that, based on community request, brings in the Boost setting and Steady Aim experimental test feature from XIM4. It also includes a new feature for keyboard users: Simulate Analog Behavior. These are advanced features that should be used with caution as they can negatively affect aiming performance if not used correctly. This build also includes a new subconfig Deactivation Delay feature for games that require it and Customizable Walk Speed for keyboard movement.

● Steady Aim: Unlike Smoothing which produces uniform mouse stabilization, Steady Aim forcibly restricts mouse movement into discrete values. Higher values produce a stronger effect. Located under Aim expert settings.

● Boost: Boost artificially inflates the game's aiming stick dead zone. Be advised that values too large will significantly degrade micro-aiming performance. Located under Mouse expert settings.

● Simulate Analog Behavior: For keyboard users, outputs controller values similar to that of the gamer using a thumbstick. Higher values produce a stronger effect. Located under Movement expert settings.

● Deactivation Delay: Similar to a subconfig's (such as ADS) Activation delay, a Deactivation delay waits for the specified time before it's longer active. Located under each subconfig's Activation settings.

● Deactivation Priority: Prior to this change, when a subconfig is no longer active, return to Hip settings occurs. Now, if there is a subconfig between the active and Hip that is currently activated, it is selected (rather than Hip).

● Customizable Walk Speed: When using a keyboard for movement a walk modifier can be applied to slow movement. This change allows the walk speed to be customized. Located under Movement expert settings.

That's right, this is now requirement of Android. An app cannot access a Bluetooth LE device (like XIM APEX) if location services aren't on. Everyone hates it and don't understand why Google changed this, but we have no choice.

Can you help me understand what exactly the issue you are having? Did you upgrade both Manager and the Firmware?

With this update looming on the horizon for a broader audience, is there any truth to the matter regarding XIM needing to make a change to account for the (current) incompatibility with Corsair K63 (Wireless) latest firmware? (3.07)


In other words, many users here have upgraded their K63 Wireless keyboard to the latest firmware (3.07) - and as a result, the keyboard no longer works wirelessly with the XIM Apex. Is it true that this is able to be addressed by XIM? Or is it something that would need to be addressed by Corsair? (or both?)


Seems like it could be important to many - so I figured to inquire here. The latest betas have not seemed to remedy this situation.

iOS always takes longer since Apple insists on having to "sign off" on every since app which includes TestFlight builds which is honestly ridiculous. All we can do is wait now for Apple to press the button to allow it through.

This build has no customer facing feature changes. However, there are a lot of changes inside as we had to upgrade out application frameworks to support the app store's new rules for app submission. So, if you could please install it and give feedback of any issues it would be greatly appreciated.
