Title: I feel like I just found the holy grail.
Post by: GeckoSex on 07:11 PM - 06/29/08
This is the best thing I've found in a long time. I've been looking everywhere trying to find something that will let me use my mouse and keyboard for the 360. I'm still a little skeptical as to how well this thing works. I've been playing COD in TWL and CAL since it first came out, so I'm very used to how a mouse feels...will I be able to tell a diff, if I use one of these? I'll be using it for Halo 3 mainly.

Not exactly the same as playing on a computer, but as close as it gets.


"The reticule was snappy and responsive
The "floaty" feeling is all but non existent
Button presses are instant
Reticule is smooth, precise and as quick as you want it
180's are not really an issue anymore
360's are not really an issue anymore either.

It's absolutely awesome now. Xim 1 opened the doors, but Xim360 is the light at the end of the tunnel that I have been waiting for. There is still some extensive play time to get in which we are all doing and analyzing."

Don't be too excited about it.

XIM2 is a Hoax.

It's like the Holy Grail in the sense that only it's creators used it and no one will ever see it again.

He's bs'ing you =). XIM 2 will be out. The creators are hard at making it perfect. They're enthusiasts trying to better this community's m and k gaming experience. If you wanna try out the current version- you'll need a version of XFPS 360 and this:

Who is this guy? Do you not see the videos? Do you think that real picture of that small amazing chip is a hoax? Well you stick to your whatever you have, while we own with our XIM2's(who knows when).

I think I'm gonna wait till the XIM2 is out since it's so close. I dont wanna buy the first one and then have to buy the better one a few weeks down the road.

Yea I said the same thing in February. I think it will be more than a few weeks , there are only three guys beta testing, they have lives outside of XIM2, and they want it perfect(or as near perfect as possible).
I really donít think the XIM360 is that close, but thatís just my opinion. And I wish I would have bought a XIM1 back in February.

This is the reason it was kept a bit of a secret. The XIM 2 bomb got dropped a little premature. I say premature because people decided that it would be best to wait it out on their own. And we don't mind telling people to wait for XIM 2 since it is definitely worth the wait, but... if you already have an XFPS and have 80 bucks on hand, I would buy a XIM 1. Well maybe not now but a couple months ago, yea. Or.... if you want one for a PS3, buy an XIM GEN 1 today. As far as XIM 2, start saving now. (I'm not saying release is immanent. For some people, saving up for something like this takes a while. Keep in mind some people here may only have allowance money to work with. :P)

Now now... he could have just been joking sarcastic. I understand the sentiment but let's not get hostile.  Try always assuming someone is just joking. That's what I do and it's worked well for me so far... (except when that guy told me to get away from his property or he'd shoot... not sure what went wrong there.)

Yes Derek, you can use your XIM for online play, but when it comes down to tournaments (LAN events) they do not permit the usage of 3rd party devices (i.e. XIM). I hope they change this  :'(

I dont think they will eventually permit XIM/2 or any 3rd party device since Console's is meant to be played on joystick.

They can say its for whatever reason they want but it comes down to analog sticks being inferior for FPSs. This is why every job requiring precision is done with a mouse or like device. Analog sticks are great for controlling 2nd degree devices like cars and planes or any mechanical device simulator that isn't supposed to function 1:1 by its design or limitations(ie robotics/hydrolics)... not first degree control like head/hands. Period; end of story.

There are people that have adapted well and knowingly (,or unknowingly) use the crutches of the game in their favor. These are the people who are good at the game as they are and prefer the sticks, but you put that person on the sticks on a crutch-less PC version of the game and all of a sudden, 99% of them suck.

Hmm, not to jump judgement but this thing sounds like t could be a bit pricey (probably worth it).  I was thinking of getting a xim but now i think i'll just wait for xim2.  I can only afford random luxuries every 3 months or so :P

The present is a gift. What better present than to present yourself a Xim 1?

Hehe.

I cannot comment on the timeline, or any of the specifics. However the testing process is really going quite well and the Xim360 is just a pleasure beyond measure to enjoy. Wow, I just rhymed unintentionally.

See the xim 2 testing progress thread, I have a list of games I have run through and my notes on them. Hell, I even tested VIVA PINATA PARTY ANIMALS on the Xim360. Lol.

Hey since I can't directly reply on your post.  Which makes sense for readability sake.  Just curious how it works with any of the real time strategy games out there.  ie.  C&C, Universe at War, etc...  I guess this would involve lots of scripting to make hot keys for units etc..    hmmmmm I guess i should just try this out with xim1.  But if you have access and time give it whirl!  No worries if you don't.  I'm so looking forward to playing Halo3 with more Precise aiming!  And Unreal should be great!

As far as hot key, you can manipulate your designated button or trigger anywhere on your keyboard via XIM/2.exe so thats off the issue. Im not sure on how well XIM/2 will react on RTS games, we'll just have to wait till Nick or Derek test those genre out.

I haven't reported on the RTS side of things, I have tried CC really quick but it is not like the PC and you don't have the same set of neato tools like you do on the PC version.... When I get to the RTS side of things, It will be towards the end of testing which I can offer a closer look at that side of things.

That would be awesome if all things works out for RTS games with XIM, XIM will not only dominate FPS and 3rd games but also the RTS community. just you said Nick, "XIM fought the system and... XIM won!" :D

I donít think it will. I pre ordered 1 probably a year ago or so, and a few months ago was contacted that the project was canceled and my CC was credited.

I ordered it back when I was using the smartjoy mod before the xim1 was released
They where making it for the PS2, which I figured, hay maybe it will work in the PS2 port on the xfps 360. Maybe they are working on something for a current system but who knows (or cares at this point with xim2 around the corner)

Yes, thank you, for all those stiff purists out there, I was, actually, being sarcastic.

I didn't make a new account to bash the community, I made a new account 'cause I just heard of XIM2 but was a little bummed after reading all the posts since the beginning of the year, I'm actually very excited about XIM2, I was just about to buy everything to make my own XIM, I was literally checking if I had everything listed when I found the link to this site and the news about XIM2 so I decided to wait for it be released.

And I think derektm did get the joke and confirmed I could be on list for the release batch, at least that's what I understood, english is not my native language.

Svyline, SKAG187 and all who took it the bad way, I apologize, I specially don't want to create enmity with the Admins and Beta Testers, to whom I'm most grateful for developing such a magnificent device. might sound sarcastic but that one is for real  ;)

Anyway, that's more apologies than I've given in the last 3 years so that's it.
