The Best Mouse & Keyboard Adapter

First-Person Shooters provide a great experience when you play on mouse and keyboard. However, the problem is that most consoles don’t accept the inputs from these peripherals. That’s where the XIM Apex PS4 can help. XIM Apex PS4 is a CIA (Console Input Adapter) that can get around the limitations of modern gaming consoles by tricking the consoles. It does this by masking the input devices and making the console think you’re using the game controller.

Moreover, this console adapter isn’t just limited to the mouse and keyboard. You can even plug in other devices like a tablet, phablet, smartphone, etc. The XIM Apex PS4 is also a versatile device, which allows it to support multiple gaming styles and hardware.

Setting Up the XIM Apex on PS4

The XIM Apex PS4 includes a USB hub and a thumb drive. The thumb drive features a USB port and plug on either side. Here’s how you can connect and configure the adapter to your console correctly:

  • The USB hub features three ports. The port one is where you need to connect the mouse. Port two is for the keyboard, while the third port is for the controller, which must be switched off before plugging it in.
  • Next, you have to connect the USB hub and the adapter.
  • Now, connect the adapter to the console.
  • When the adapter is connected to the console, it’ll display a color sequence. Once it flashes a green light, it means the connection between the adapter and the console is clear.
  • Download and open the XIM Apex app on your smartphone. It’s available for iOS & Android.
  • Next, connect the app to your XIM Apex PS4 adapter via Bluetooth.
  • Once connected, the app will show that you haven’t saved any game settings. It’ll launch a window where you can make a new setting for XIM Apex PS4.
  • Note that the mouse DPI needs to be between 3000 and 4000 DPI, which is the ideal DPI for the XIM Apex adapter. You can change the mouse sensitivity later.
  • On the app, select the console and the game you’re using. Here, you can change the aim sensitivity. Note that sensitivities operate differently for different games. So, once you pick a game, ensure that you set the suitable ADS and Hip for that game.
  • On the HUD (Heads-Up-Display) screen, the XIM Apex will display the configured settings. It’ll also show you the keypresses in real-time and the actions each keypress will offer in the game.
  • Next, use the Edit Config option and set the mouse sensitivity. It lets you customize the aim sensitivity. Input the suitable number for ADS (Aim Down Sights) and Hip aiming for the game you’ll be playing.
  • Generally, the ADS must be lower than the Hip. You can set the aiming sensitivity to 500 for higher sensitivity as per the game.
    Finding the proper sensitivity is a little tricky. You’ll have to play around a bit with the configuration until you get the appropriate sensitivity for the game.

Note: The XIM Apex doesn’t support awesome RGB. As such, if your keyboard has an excellent RGB, XIM Apex PS4 recommends that you switch it off. This is done to make sure the adapter remains within the configured power limit.
