Refresh Game Config
« on: 11:42 PM - 06/27/20 »
I'm on PS4 with Xim Apex and I'm using a Razor Orbweaver keyboard. I'm getting intermittent sticking either on my nav keys or my sprint key. Suddenly my character in Destiny 2 gets stuck and can't move anywhere but up. I'm not sure if it's a hardware or software problem. Is there a way to refresh my xim config, or reinstall it without loosing my settings? That way I can rule out a software issue. Thanks.

A few possibilities -

1. Faulty USB cables from the controller to XIM APEX can cause intermittent disconnects. Try a different cable (make sure it supports data).

2. Excessive power draw from the mouse, keyboard and/or controller can cause disconnects. Make sure your controller is fully charged. If that doesn't solve it, consider purchasing a power adapter for the XIM APEX USB hub. It needs to be 5V 3A power adapter  ([3.5mm x 1.35mm], center-positive).

3. Some keyboard manufacturers don't have great key rollover support. Razer is one of those brands.

If you're stuck in a strafe or find yourself circling around looking at the ground or sky, I'd go with power and recommend buying an adapter. But try a new controller USB cable first as it's the most common issue affecting XIMs.

BTW, how can you tell if a USB cable supports data? I have a million of them

Would a 5v 2amp charger be ok?
