And it’s on offer today in the Amazon Prime promotion: £299.

"Worth the money" is always going to be down to personal opinion and solvency.
I have a Pro hooked up to a 4K monitor (LG 27UD58) and IMO graphics look hugely improved over the PS4 and a 1080p.
Do I think it's worth £650 just to get improved eye candy? Logically, probably not. Emotively, definitely.

^ Don't do this. This is how you can become desynced with the game.
Appreciate your opinion, but it works for me.

Uncheck Toggle ADS in XIM Manager and enable Toggle ADS in-game.

Thinking of downloading it.

Does anyone recommend it? If so, what do I need to know?

If you go on such a high killstreak in any game then its not only about aim but primarily about positioning, game awareness and decision making. You have to read the spawns, know where to place yourself and how to push or when to retreat.
100% THIS!!!

Ok, let's just boil this back to the core issue - is it possible to offer generic profiles like the Xim4 CCC?

That's really all this is about. I vaguely recall some prior discussion but nothing came of it.

A bit of a tangent, but I've always wished there was a way to create a generic one with custom art, for games that aren't supported by XIM.
It is a separate tangent, but I've always wanted this too. Maybe start a separate thread to discuss?

Yes I know it's all preference
Yes, it really is.
but there's always the right way to do things
Not when it comes to DPI there isn't.
If we were all identical people, playing the same game, using the same equipment, then we'd all use the same DPI. But we aren't. What matters is what feels right to you.
Emanuel's right, and alanmcgregor's right, even though they are saying different things. I'll tell you that 3200 is right, but we are all different people, with different set-ups in different games. Ask the questions, read the responses, understand the technicalities, debate the points of view, and then go set up with what feels right for you! ;)

Game is free to play at PS Plus.

I wonder how is the player base, is easy to find games? anything I should know before waiting 36hrs downloading?

Any info is appreciated  ;)
Loads in the UK. None in Brazil

This is my “gaming” mouse, it’s old but works great.  I turned the DPI up to max, but it’s not close to what people have been using for “optimal” use.  Honestly this is the one thing I’d want to replace since it’s old and has crusty hot pocket residue

"crusty hot pocket residue" sounds disgusting! ;)

Actually, your mouse looks OK, other than the fact that its max DPI is just 2000. 3k min is recommended with XIM. At 2k DPI and 1k Hz you'll max out your sensitivity.

The link you posted doesn't give any details that would demonstrate the quality of the sensor. Can you get it to spin out, in game? Do you get any jitter/stuttering?

The native reticle that you move with the controller to select the mission and change load outs (destiny 2)
Ah, Destiny! That explains it. The Destiny UI utilises the look and action mechanics rather than mouse movement, ergo, whatever you are using to look around will also move your cursor within the Directory. This is not an issue with your mouse. Use your keyboard/joystick to navigate the menus. I'm at work at the mo, but when I get home, I can post you a screenshot of the keys that I use if you like?

I bought this for my PS4 with high hopes. 

However, it wasn't until I received it and went through the setup, updated the firmware that I found some issues.

1) If you have an old PS4, and more specifically old dual shock 4 controllers you cannot just use your current headphone/mic.  Their solution?  Buy another dongle with sound card, USB headset, or the $100 sony headset.

2) My mouse does not move the cursor on the screen for reasons unknown (it registers button presses on the mouse though).  There is NOT a list of compatible mice.  There is only a list of KNOWN mice that do not work.  That's not very helpful (as I'm sure the list will continue to grow).

All in all, the cost of the Xim Apex $100, plus a new controller ($60) or headset, and a new mouse (30-40?).  I could easily spend another $150 in order to make this work.  (OH and the amount of frankenstein cords it would create makes me cringe!)

Sure, you could say I should have known better.  But there was no way to know until I delved deep into the forums to find the issues.  There were no disclaimers from the manufacturer.  Hopefully this will only affect a few people with older machines.  I'm sad that I can't be a part of the fun that many people are having with the Xim.

Good luck!
If I were you, I wouldn't be so quick to throw in the towel. XIM is awesome and you'll be missing out if you don't use it.

A $20 Soundblaster Play! 3 will fix your audio problem (which is caused by the passthrough limitations of the older controllers, not a weakness of the Apex).

And if you want to game with a mouse, you should use a gaming grade mouse with a good sensor. What mouse do you have?

Hey guys, probably a stupid question ...

I'm using a RedDragon Cobra. I set the mouse to 1000hz and 10K DPI on my PC; however, once I unplug it and put it into my Apex, I observe that it's not polling at 1000hz (red triangle). So, I put it back into my PC and it's right back to 500hz and 6K DPI that I believe is just the default setting.

Is there a solution to this or am I an idiot and missing something?

Any and all input is appreciated.
Sounds like your mouse doesn't have on-board memory so will not remember changed settings when unplugged from the PC.
Either use a Belkin Easy Transfer cable to attach the Apex to a PC running XIM Link whilst on console or buy a mouse with on-board memory.

I'm just using a regular old Dell optical mouse on a mouse pad.
You probably need to upgrade to a mouse with a gaming grade sensor. Do a 180° flick with your mouse. Any stuttering? If so you need a new mouse.

Cloth mouse pads are great for control, but don't like high DPI. What's your set at?
I coulda put the $150 to a new GFX card for my PC instead of the XIM if I woulda known it had limitations like this.

What's the point of selling the experience of a mouse and keyboard if it still has limitations like a controller?
Your expectations are too high. You are getting the experience of a mouse and keyboard on console. And the Apex is the ultimate tool for using M&KB, but you're still limited by the mechanics and software of the controller, the console and the developers.

The only way to get the precision of mouse on PC is to play with a mouse on PC. If you want to use it on your Xbox, then you need to make adjustments based on the fact that your turn speed will always be limited due to the fact that a controller's sticks only move a couple of mil whereas a mouse's movement is unlimited. The Apex is sublime, but it can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Hi everyone.

I like to play COD WWII on the XBOX One. I set my "in game" sensitivity to 14 (the highest) and then set my XIM sensitivity to 300 or so. I'm still experimenting, but I think between 250 and 300 is a good feel for me. However, when I try to move the mouse and spin 180 degrees to quickly kill somebody behind me, it appears I'm moving the mouse too fast as my movement will be jittery. I just want to do a quick turnaround and shoot somebody, but it appears to be a limitation somewhere.

Can anyone help me get rid of this jitter?


Your sensitivity is too high. Set Sync to Common and reduce your sensitivity accordingly.
