    Hi Everyone,

    I would like to say having tested this firmware for around 10 hours on the TE version its definitely a step in the right direction. I only tested bluetooth and wired for around 5 hours each and i will add that the bluetooth performs much better than wired.

    During bluetooth mode i had no drift issues whatsoever but the input lag was noticeable but only every so often.

    On the wired connection both drift and input lag was noticeable but every couple of minutes. I also got controller disconnected while using wired randomly which i never saw on the previous firmware.

    This firmware definitely made my joypad useable again and makes me feel confident that this can be completely fixed maybe in the official V1.02 release or in future firmware releases.

    For now i will hold onto the controller and wait patiently.

    Please don't ask for the link, You can get it by PM Razer Staff.

    Thanks for reading and i hope this helps out with any questions. SiR-Swifty

    Just a friendly hint, this reads a bit confusion, meaning people could get confused. It's about the second and third section. You do write in the past so I'm rather sure you describe the situation BEFORE the firmware 1.02 beta, don't you? It's not 100% clear I'm afraid.

    And after that you tell us that the firmware 1.02 was a step into the right dicrection which is very vague. Did it - in parts or completely - fix any of the problems you mentioned above?

    I gave a description of how the Beta firmware worked for me and said specifically its a step in the right direction. Thanks for your comment.

    So, to clarify: WITH the v1.02 firmware you do experience:

    - still input lag via BT, but only sometimes
    - drift & input lag when wired, regularly

    I'm sorry but for everyone hoping this could bring a fix this is devastating news! Having a controller that is sometimes unusable is as bad as a controller that is unusable all the time imho. :slightly_sad:

    That is exactly how it is. Compared to the previous firmware this is way better via bluetooth, i can at least play games without drift or input lag and when i do see it happening its barely noticeable. Remember this is Beta im hoping the official release will fix all the mentioned problems. Thanks

    I hope that, too. Was just a bit disappointed is all. And I don't even have the lag issue, just the drifting (right stick) when playing wired.

    Yes i seem to have the drifting more when wired which makes me think the wired connection is a Hardware issue rather than Software which is not good. I have 30 days left to either get a refund or replacement so i will just wait for the official release and if that doesn't fix it i will get a replacement. If the replacement doesn't work im going for a refund and will probably wait for a second revision of this controller.

    Perhaps i am one of the lucky few that hasn't had much issue with the controller?
    Previously on 1.01, i have no stick drift or anything of that (wired or wireless), though i did have noticeable input lag on BT mode for PS4, but it's nowhere bad, maybe 80ms more compared to dualshock 4.

    Upgraded to 1.02, i can confirm that there's no difference from dualshock 4 in terms of input lag, i even took a 240fps video and i can't see a difference.

    Any chance you can link the video here?

    I've created a short video for comparison, pardon me for the low resolution as the video got compressed while being merged.

    i think there is a slight lag compared to the DS4 in that video, maybe about 50ms or so?? but definitely much better than the last version which had like half a second at times.

    Btw when it works wireless but not wired it isnt a hardware issue, it would have been hardware if it performed with both the same. For example regular disconnections with the same frequency in both modes could mean its a hardware issue, tho it could also be software. But when the same controller has different issues with different connections then its either software or the actual wire is faulty. Meaning either the driver for the wired connection is at fault or the wire. Which honestly is a good thing cuz all we have to do is wait for a better patch. Also the first razer raiju had similar problems while wired, especially with lag on the sticks but after many months a patch came and fixed it. So its nothing new. But it should have been a hint to test it more this time, which propably didnt happen. Give it to some gamers for a couple weeks and then get back some feedback.

    P.S. its weird for the bluetooth to get fixed before the wired connection imo. Not only should the wired connection should have been fine since the first razer raiju was wired and all the problems were solved later on. But also the drift stick issues seem much easier to fix than input lag on bluetooth.

    So i guess if the input lag is reduced just a bit more on bluetooth and the stick drift issue is fixed, then only the hair trigger mode remains. The disconnections propably was a bug since it didnt exist before and it wont appear on the official second patch.

    Don't forget guys, as i mentioned the video was shot on 240fps slow mo, and to be honest i cannot tell a difference, let alone in actual time pace.

    From the slow motion i cant distinguish it either but its apparent in the end without any time altering. The best solution to compare the actual lag would be to put both slow mo content in a split screen on the same video and synchronise them from the moment ur finger starts moving. This way you can properly calculate the exact lag in ms. But that seems like too much work tbh.

    Also you could properly understand it while playing an FPS game, see if it feels different at start and later on as you get a feel for the raizer, try both the razer and the DS4 controller to evaluate if you can feel some lag from the razer compared to the other. One thing to take notice on, there are multiple people who have not encountered lag on the sticks but when u ask them which game they were playing they will mention campaign games. If i was playing Dark Souls for example i wouldnt ever notice any issue. You need a fast paced game with immediate response that you have developed some mechanic/muscle memory over many hours of playing to be able to tell if there's a slight difference. But from what i can see when the video isnt in slow mo, there's a very slight delay. Still a huge improvement, other videos were showing some huge delay, this is surely much better.

    Eliminate the lag completely, stop the stick drift issues, fix the hair trigger mode and the controller would be perfect.

    Excuuuuuuse me, did you just assume my time pace??? Kidding. :D Really, thanks for taking the time making that vid. :)

    You can get the beta v1.02 by PM a Razer Staff and tell them about the problems you are experiencing with the controller.

    I can confirm, the beta solves a lot of issues. At least they are working on it.
