This Beta build is no longer valid, please upgrade to latest.

Changes since the last Beta: This Beta adjusts Simulate Analog Behavior to match behavior of the current retail firmware build when the value set to 0. It corrects an issue with Walk where diagonal movement speeds were higher than horizontal or vertical. It fixes a Config reordering issue in Manager that could result in Config corruption. Finally, it also corrects a player movement issue reported in Division 2 and Apex Legends.

iOS USERS: DO NOT upgrade your firmware until you see this version of Manager show in TestFlight. iOS Manager users must wait for Apple to approve all builds.

IMPORTANT: This build requires you use both the firmware and Manager versions specified here in order to access all features. If you aren't using both firmware and Manager, you won't see the new features in Manager. Please use the links below.

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● Deactivation Priority: Prior to this change, when a subconfig is no longer active, return to Hip settings occurs.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

Nice. Could someone braver than me report back if Apex Legends works ok with this build. Would rather not have to back date again if it does not. Appreciate it.

d1sable, multiple community members that I sent the private build to reported that it's fixed. It would be great if you could upgrade.

I barley play apex and thought it was normal for sprint not to work unless holding forward. I remeber immediately noticing a different in feel on pubg with wasd but didn't realize it was malfunctioning.  Testing the beta now and sprint no longer cancels on apex.  Testing on bo4 now and it feels like aim assist isn't as strong do I need to add sab to make it stronger as I always use 0. It could just be me though because I swear with this game has so much to do with connection so I'll test a few more than hop on some pubg.  Apperciate the constant updates OBsIV.

Iíve factory reset my xim apex and now my sense are messed up. After reset and putting my hip and ads back in the senses are faster for some odd reason. If any one could help I would gladly appreciate it.

You probably have your snyc changed. Try switching it to common eg and see if its back to normal. Sensitivity is not changed in firmwares

Give this new update a run. I haven't seen anything like this while testing these fixes.

What game are u playing? If it's fortnite then it will be due to the new ST which u probably didn't download till now when u factory reset.
