Title: XIM4 Advanced Settings and other great info "How To Guides" (Updated 7/31/17)
Post by: RML on 12:27 PM - 08/16/15
As the title states, I will be using this thread as a "How To Guide" for Advanced Settings with the XIM4. Please note that this is a place for General Info guides, not specific game guides. I will be adding and updating guides as changes occur and as time permits. I encourage everyone that would like to share their knowledge to add their informative post here. If you have questions or requests for a guide that may be helpful to you, please sound off. I will try to accommodate "reasonable" request within a "reasonable" amount of time. "Reasonable" being determined by yours truly (what? this is time consuming, FREE info people).

If you notice an error within my post's, please let me know so that I may correct it and avoid confusion with the community. My hope is that this can become a place where we can come together, share knowledge and build a little data base of information. This way it can be useful as a reference point, a link, for others down the road and we "I" don't have to regurgitate the same info over and over. Not only will this make life easier for those of us that wish to help the community. It will also make life ALOT easier for those that wish to learn from the community about Advanced Settings.

Thanks in advance for your help in making this a "GO TO" thread for all things "Advanced" with XIM4. If you're a complete Noob to XIM, please make sure you check out the links below and Pay Attention! If you don't come prepared and already have a grasp of basic operations, then this thread is not for you. I also encourage all new users to not automatically assume they have to use Advanced Settings. This is XIM, this isn't Titan or Tuact! You don't "Have to" setup and tweak everything to death like you do with some other products out there. XIM is GREAT without Advanced Settings for most games. This threads focus should be to appeal to Three core ideas.

1. Improve the experience of playing a game with a poor look mechanic, I.E. Destiny.
2. Improve the experience of playing a game that is vehicle oriented, I.E. Battlefield.
3. Allow the user to unleash their inner Anality and tweak every game to their hearts content (even when it's not really necessary!) - This is the definition of RML -  :P

NOTE: All videos were made utilizing the latest BETA manager/firmware which can be found in the release candidate section.

Let's start this off with some helpful links.

OBsIV doesn't take kindly to macro talk and XIM4. However, I do not share macro's that can reasonably be interpreted as cheats. I only use them to make the gameplay more fluid and fun. I have some time off next week and I'll try to show you guys how my Destiny setup works with LGS settings as an example.

Make sure you wipe the old firmware/manager from your device and clear the cache before upgrading. Then you'll probably have to do a factory reset when you do upgrade, depending on what Firmware/manager your currently running.

What code are you wanting to copy? This is an advanced settings how-to sticky. It's meant to help users understand each settings purpose and how to use them. You may want to visit game support for curve codes.

Sorry guys, I don't want this to turn into a Macro Thread as Macros aren't something that XIM likes discussed in this forum. Please keep your questions related to XIM Advanced Settings.

If you have questions about LGS software please send me a PM.

Are you saying that you copy settings from the PC but then they're gone when you connect to the xbox?

If that is correct, ask for help with that in the support section. You're sure to get help from Admin there.  :)

This is probably a question you should ask in the General forum, I don't use any of that stuff.

Good luck!

All Ballistics do is adjust acceleration within the boundaries of the games look mechanic. This offers us options to try and smooth out movement, which is mostly beneficial for games that utilize timed acceleration.

I personally like ballistics to help with Aim Assist, why? Because a slow down occurs when AA kicks in. This slow down is not really an issue if you play at a high sensitivity. But it can be troublesome if you like playing at lower sensitivities as the slow down can often create a feeling of a barrier bubble around the player as the velocity drops. Keep in mind this velocity drop around the "Hit Box" is dialed in for a controller user. This means the slow down occurs just before your crosshairs are actually on the target. That's necessary due to the acceleration and lack of precision the controller user has to deal with, "Slow down early or Overshoot the target". Using a device as precise as a high DPI mouse, we don't need nearly the amount of "Slow down" as a controller users does in order to stay on target. So typically, we're not always trying to enter the hitbox at the same velocity that the controller user is due to this added precision. Another words, we're utilizing the full range of motion to a much higher degree then the controller user does. So this velocity drop can sometimes feel a bit extreme for us if our velocity is to slow when AA kicks in. This can sometimes create the effect of your aim getting stuck just trailing the player.

That's why I always say, "Learn to play as fast as possible with XIM if you want to be able to take full advantage of the device".

Ballistic curves are really just a crutch for players like me that can't play as fast as needed to optimize the velocity drop that occurs when AA kicks in.

Are they a hack? Absolutely NOT, IMO.

Hey RML,
I'm fairly new to all this xim stuff, I had a splitfish frag fx for both ps3 and 360. I agree with everything you say about the macros, however i am struggling with my g700s and sony nav.

The issue i am having is speacialist activation in black ops 3. Is there a way to bind L1 and R1 so that i can achieve this instead of having frag or equipment? Make a button do both and remove the functionality of the individual buttons themselves?

Hey KINGxKOBRA,

First of all, Welcome to the forum!  :)

Secondly, Yes, you can absolutely do this and you can still keep separate buttons for frags and equipment.

Here's how:
Open Xim Manager - Load BO3 config - Open the Config - go down to "Buttons" - Expand, this will open up your "Primary" buttons, here you can set Frag and equipment to whatever buttons you want - Go to the bottom of the Primary buttons and you'll notice a "Secondary" option - Open this and then assign RB and LB (Frag and Equipment) to the same button - I would use a button that isn't being used for anything else, but is easily accessible. Now that button will activate your super power when pressed. I use scroll up for this on the mouse. So I assign both RB and LB to scroll up under secondary button binding.

Done!  ;)

Hola, ADS es una abreviation de Aim Down Sights. Puede que necesite ajustar su sensibilidad para ADS y HIP hasta que el movimiento se sienta más suave para usted.

Espero que eso ayude.

Hey all, Looking for some help or info. I'm using my xim4 on the new COD on PS4. I've set up a custom config to get a faster turret turn speed in vehicles and was wondering if you can add the options to set up buttons and the analogue stick so I can use my keyboard to drive the tank. Unfortunately, the game does not allow remapping of the pad for vehicles.
