You are a very interesting person😂 .You are playing against the controller players with mnk and you say that anti-recoil is a cheat. If we want to go with your logic, using the mouse and keyboard in the console is cheating and you are the cheater.  Please do not shout your personal opinions.
Anti-recoil is a grate option of xim matrix. And you can chose to use it or don't use. You can't come here and say everybody using this option is cheater

I can and I will. Anybody that uses anti-recoil is a cheater. It's plain as day and super simple logic and reason. I'm sorry you aren't capable of that.

First Person Shooters are designed for both controller and M&K keyboards, so choosing your input method is NOT trying to break any of the game mechanics. At all.

Recoil is a FUNDAMENTAL game mechanic of first person shooters - it gives the game a certain skill level. Also it is a KEY way to differentiate weapons so that you have to sacrifice things like more recoil for things like more damage or range, etc.. Therefore to defeat the FUNDAMENTAL game mechanic of recoil, is cheating. Plain and simple. You can't go around key game mechanics and think its not cheating. That is delusional.

Currently I'll be using it on BF 2042 and Apex Legends - and without any anti-recoil, because I am not a cheater. I'm 47 and have been a M&K gamer since my early twenties, so I wasn't going to switch over in my forties. Screw anti-recoil, that stuff is lame. I finally met another XIM player on 2042 during the holidays. I told him about the Matrix anti-recoil, and he agreed, that was cheating.

You probably shouldn't buy anymore Xim products. As a matter of fact, you should probably boycott all Xim products and close your Xim account. I don't want you to harm your conscience.

You make zero sense. I fully support being able to use your preferred input device in games, and that is what I will use XIM products for and that's it - these games are designed for M&K and controllers, it is not defeating the design of the game. But as we all know, anti-recoil is defeating a fundamental part of the actual game mechanics that differentiate weapons to compensate for their strengths and weaknesses. To eliminate recoil is to cheat.

Say whatever you want to say to yourself and to others so you don't have to admit to them or yourself that you are a @#$% cheater if you use anti-recoil. I mean just say it "I like anti-recoil and being a cheater so I am going to use it and be a cheater'

I figured it out, the XIM Apex Hub was the culprit, I didn't test it as well as I should have before - it was going in and out and it finally went kaput the other night. I just got a new usb 2.0 two port non-powered hub and all is well.

General Discussion / Logitech G915 users with a USB switch
« on: 09:13 AM - 01/05/23 »
I have been using a logitech g915 keyboard with lightspeed for the last month no problems on the same ioGear USB switch I've been using the last four years with the Apex. Nothing changed in my setup the last four years, just different peripherals. And all of December was seamless with the G915 in the same setup.

Anyways just after midnight on NYE, my keyboard stopped connecting to the lightspeed transmitter - only when I switched the UBS Switcher over to the Apex. When the switcher is back on the PC, the lightspeed connector works fine, with or without GHub launched.

I got a new G915 and even with the new keyboard and transmitter, same issue. So then I changed the ioGear USB switch to a new one, same model but brand new, thinking maybe that broke. Still the same @#$% issue.

The only thing left to try in the hardware chain is a new hub for the Apex, so that's coming tomorrow. Otherwise if that doesn't work I have no idea. All the hardware has been checked.

Anybody with a lightspeed keyboard and USB switch run into the same issues?

the triple hub that the xim apex comes with - can that be easily replaced with any 2-4 port usb 2.0 hub?


I will buy one because I want the latest evolution of the Apex, but I am disappointed there is an anti-recoil macro being advertised for this. I'd prefer my device not to have built in cheating even if I don't use it.

I think there is a very clear line between using a device to use your preferred input method versus using a device and implementing an anti-recoil method on it.

They're two very distinct actions. I'm not sure why people are having trouble separating those two things because they are quite different.

It is disappointing that you'll be able to cheat with things like anti recoil on the next product.

Wait. Haven't been here in awhile. They are releasing a new xim m&k translator?

Yep. I've done it.

I already have a XIM Apex and I want to buy another one but it's been ages since they've been in stock.

Pretty darn sad about it. It's still such a hugely relevant product for so many so I know there is demand.

Curious to hear this as well. Just bought the game and waiting on the ST.

They turned off the Rush 2042 and TDM modes. That is so dumb. How do you turn off a Rush mode in a BF game? It's the most iconic mode after Conquest and so beloved and was one of the better modes in this game.

Also you can shoot armored vehicles with guided rockets, someone on the team just has to spot them with the gadget SOFLAM and then all standard rockets become guided - against choppers or ground vehicles.

...so it is what it is if you like battlefield type games.

and that's exactly what it is no longer without the class system but this hero specialist system. That has nothing to do with Battlefield. This is a miscarriage. The maps are all @#$%, regardless of whether they are 62 or 128 players, they are for the garbage. There are so many development errors in the game that one wonders that a fool has ever played at dice himself. Last capture point on a skyscraper? Really?..and the game has no potential due to the glaring wrong decisions. You can't make chocolate pudding out of @#$% anymore.

Marcus Lehto was asked on twitter what happened to the Battlefield franchise.
"I'm trying to find out for myself right now. Then I want to put things right."

Doesn't want to have his job right now!

I strongly disagree on the maps. I think the Breakthrough 64, Rush maps and Conquest 64 maps are quite fun actually except for a couple exceptions. I wish there were more maps but for the ones we have in those modes there are some great transitions in there going from objective to objective. Nice mix of infantry and vehicular combat. I am primarily infantry only and I am having some great battles. Some maps are better than others. I enjoy those. They took off the final point on the skyscraper weeks ago last I heard. So maybe you haven't played in a while. TDM is a blast.

I was very anti the specialist system at first, and I'd still prefer the old class system back but it's really not as horrific as people are complaining about. I always find myself joining the haters at first, gamers are such huge haters. And gamers hate hate any change. And they often have very good points, but they just give up completely on any change no matter what it is all the time and just really like to @#$% way way too much and never see any positives..

The specialist system is certainly not the end of the world by any means, though it should be tweaked. They can keep specialists but just restrict their loadouts by class. So a recon specialist can only carry recon items. An assault specialist can only carry assault weapons/items. Etc... I think that is where this new guy will take the specialist system because it's not disappearing. In the meantime, it doesn't ruin the game, but can evolve better. There are some cool things specialists can do in different situations actually.

I have checked out Hell Let Loose and may buy it, but it's far more of a simulation war game and far different style than BF games. I have Insurgency and will play it, but it's much smaller scale than BF. I never liked COD games, so really, I'm out of options. Still nothing gives me that experience BF can. Have had quite a few BF moments in this game.

I see a lot of people complaining but they only played the 128 player maps. They actually haven't tried the 64 player maps yet.

I didn't play it the first month but only after the first few patches. It still needs plenty of work (bug fixes, scoreboard, voice chat) and more content but I see a lot of potential in it. I can't find another shooter that has this much potential released in the last year so it is what it is if you like battlefield type games.

I prefer the 64 player modes over the 128 player modes except for times when I have a good squad of four all on mics in a party on Xbox. But usually I'm on the 64 player modes or team deathmatch. I was not having fun when I started out with just the 128 player modes. Discovering 64 player modes helped make the game good for me.

Breakthrough 64 has good maps, the Rush maps are good, the deathmatch maps are fun as fook. I can handle Conguest 128 on a couple maps with a good squad with comms - Conquest 64 is good also with a squad with comms.

I play the Series X so the graphics are acceptable. Nowhere near what they should have been, but good enough to be able to focus on the battles. But find me a game that lets you have these types of shooting battles and get back to me.
