Changes since the last Beta: Hardware compatibility improvements have been made designed to fix issues with both non-functional and partially working mice and keyboards. Joycon stick deadzone issues have also been fixed. Please let us know if you have any issues with your devices.

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● Deactivation Priority: Prior to this change, when a subconfig is no longer active, return to Hip settings occurs.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.

By updating the Firmware?, no.

Only you lose your configs when do a Factory Reset.

However, it might be good idea to Backup your Configs, just in case you want to reverse to an previous Beta or Official firmware because in that case Factory Reset is required.

After updating to this firmware and the new manager, although both my mouse and nav controller where showing up in the manager, nothing registered when I clicked any of the buttons on either device.

Took several disconnects and reconnects in order to finally get them to register.

Mouse is a G900 - also tried it with a G502, same thing.

Just upgraded f/w and manager to 2019315 tonight and once I set buttons for secondary function in my bo4 profile nothing really works. Like I can move forward backward strafe left/right and aim and fire. I cannot use Mouse3 now for melee and I assigned F as a hold button secondary for Square and X as hold secondary for Triangle. Also sometimes my Primary's will not function.

G502 mouse worked perfect with previous build. rolling back

Tried downgrading manager to 20180528 won't connect, also says for an older version of Android? It just worked less than an hour prior.
