Good job od1n.

I hope the next tutorial will mention the sync types
And polling rate.

Maybe I’m not understanding this correctly but I lowered my DPI from 10k to 3.2K and went from 42hip 70ads to 131.25hip 218.75ads in PUBG with sync off and now it’s noticeably jittery. My xim is currently at 500hz because I think it feels better on most games. I understand the way to fix jitter is to add smoothing. But isn’t smoothing bad because it makes aiming “floaty” ideally wouldn’t we want no smoothing?

the next tutorial video will be a "how to increase and decrease aim assist" guide, i will also do a sync tutorial after that :)

try Sync Common, the Sync Off option will cause jitter by itself and you will notice it even more the higher your xim sensitivity goes
with any other Sync setting your aim should be super smooth :)

the only benefit Sync Off has over the other Sync settings is its lack of aim assist, you will have noticeably less aim assist with Sync Off (and in return slightly worse mouse movements)

Ok next question. I like my current sensitivity. How do I adjust my sense going from off to common which btw I thought common was not recommend for pubg because it runs nowhere near 60fps. Unless I’m also not understanding that correctly.

there is no correlation between off and common, for every game it will be different
what you have to do is to use sync off with your current xim sensitivity and measure the distance you need on your mousepad for a full 360° turn with a ruler
then set the xim to sync common and adjust the xim sensitivity until you do a 360° with the same mousepad distance

pubg might run at less than 60fps but what matters is the game engine and how frequemt it accepts your inputs, so sync common could indeed play better
eg the game was "written for 60fps" but your graphic card can only offer 30fps or less

early access games play kind of in their own league in that regard, for any other game you can eg go with the 60fps and 30fps rule for your sync options

Ok thanks I’ll give it a try.

I had this problem too when using high DPI, which seems to me to go against what a lot of folks say, after all, even in ODIN’s vid he states that high dpi is polling higher so it makes things jittery. That seems to me like there should never be micro movement issues .
I understand what is being said about the dpi etc but i found that i got the best results with my 12000 by turning sync to off and a xim setting of 78.5 and 31.5.

 if ya are gonna stick with the higher dpi, try a different sync setting maybe, like off.

Have you got Smoothing set to a high value? This would likely cause the symptom you describe at high DPI.

your ingame settings for BF are the ones you can find here, right?
http://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=43775.0

next thing you should try is either
1) keep your DPI but change the Sync
2) try 3000-4000 DPI (and maybe even change the Sync)
3) lower your xim polling rate to 500hz

if you use the wrong values in 1) - 3) then these three can cause a lot of jitter that will reduce your accuracy and micro movement precision

with the smoothing option you can reduce the hitter a bit, i would suggest you to first try the options 1) - 3) though

Odin. I've tested your advice for enough hours to have an opinion: Excellent.

3-4K DPI
500hz
Proper Sync

This is the secret sauce. Thank you.

Proper Sync

You must have a different version of the firmware to me  :-)

Thanks Odin for these great tutorial.. Tried it and works perfectly for me.. Using 12k DPI on a Razer Deathadder elite and Hard Mat Razer Firefly.. yesterday tried to switch to 4k DPI and convert my HIP and ADS and I feel its much smoother for me playing Rainbow Six: Siege

when will we get this ODIN could you give an on the fly answer how to increase Aim Assist.
