This is a good point antithesis, SA3 was never supported for PS4 Slim/Pro. This means that entire community of XIM gamers on that platform never used that experimental build. Have we heard from a PS4 Slim/Pro user that plays OW? If so, are they saying XIM4 was better for them on OW?

apex was never built to interact with AA? U did this big breakdown for OW about aaw and how the apex interacts with aa so much better
None of the settings on Apex, or Xim4, or Edge, or 3 etc before it, were designed specifically to work with AA. These functions are intended for different purposes, they just happen to change how Xim plays with AA.

When translators are trained, there is no AA apparent in the look mechanic, i.e no enemies on-screen, so it doesn't take AA into account at all.

How we use a Xim to manage AA is a community project, none of it is officially supported. As an OW community, it's up to you guys to work out how a Xim works best in your game if the vanilla ST is not to your liking.

At no point has there been any objective proof or official statement that "OW is better on Apex". That's a ridiculous expectation - do we need to test every ST to ensure that Apex's enhanced performance is in fact "better on Apex", especially when we're talking about an experimental (and essentially broken) SA3 build?

What has been offered is opinion from fellow Xim users. I for one prefer Apex for OW because the 1000Hz polling offers a smoother mouse input experience. It was the first game I tried on Apex and I let out an audible "Holy @#$%!" because the tracking was so much smoother.

In the end, I'm not your personal shopper, nor am I accountable if you don't like something as much as I do. I'm not here to spruik a Xim, I'm here to share my experience and that experience is ultimately subjective. We're all big boys, make your own value judgments and form your own opinions. You can't do that unless you buy and try for yourselves.

I am not saying Obsiv is not trying to help and I understand it was experimental but at the end it was working for overwatch. So the point is to try to recreate this with apex.

Yes perhaps by using smoothing and all the things you want thatís possible to get close but then the one able to deliver the best options are mods. We are struggling with the ballistic curve (0,1,2,3 and so on + right or left of the curve, prťcision one or not,...) and all the options inside apex and inside the game. A hand would be appreciated to know how to obtain the closest performances as the Experimental SA3 for example.

At the end how do you explain xim 4 users get better performances with overwatch than apex? It is really not clear to me.

Apex was never built to interact with AA? I am lost here...

Xim was not designed to interact with AA. How it does so is dependent on the game engine. I understand it's important to you, but OW is an older game now, most of us have moved on.

You're never going to get any more than a basic guide to which Advanced Settings to tweak because it typically boils down to individual feel. What also usually happens is there is no single god-mode setting - one man's trash is another's treasure.

Mods and Admins who don't play OW are of limited assistance - it's up to those who do to experiment with settings and if they work, share. It's always been that way, for every game, so the OW victim mentality needs to stop.

If you ultimately find that Xim4 on SA3 (it's SA3 that's making the difference here, not Xim4 itself), then sell the Apex and move on. Xim supports hundreds of titles, it's not a fair request to dedicate resources to solving a problem the vast majority of Xim users aren't experiencing and is only beneficial for OW because of an experimental build. OBsIV has tried, but there's a limit to what he can do.

Support / Re: Logitech G502 Disconnects / USB Switch
« Last post by dadxgotxgame on Today at 04:10 PM »
The powered hub is required for the keyboard and mouse LEDs to work when attached to the PC. The other UGREEN switch seems to be working better, but still have a disconnect or two.

And the USB switches are not powered, though that shouldn't be an issue considering there is a powered USB hub that is powering the keyboard / mouse. Really didn't want to spend any more on the setup than I have already...if I have to try a different switch / hub, I may as well consider just buying another mouse / keyboard setup since they get cheaper by the day....

What's the brand and model of all of your keyboards?

Apex has no issue with this sort of binding, the keyboard is the usual culprit. Razer kbs in particular have problems with rollover and ghosting, which they resolve using their Synapse PC app instead of correcting the issue in firmware or on-board memory.

Also, have you tried a different USB cable from controller to Apex, or different port on the XB1?
