It depends on personal preference, but if youíre after a small mechanical kb that can operate wired or wirelessly, I recommend a Razer Blackwidow Mini V3 Hyperspeed. It works with XIM via the USB cable or USB dongle. I think it has on-board memory for macros but Iíve never tried it.

What is there to prefer exactly? New to gaming keyboards but I assume it's how it actually feels in one's hands.

This one is cheaper and doesn't seem to be much different. I don't need wireless unless there's a power issue. I'm probably turning the backlit keys off, I hate the visual distraction.

In terms of feel, a key feels like any other key in the hand, unless you go for otholinear (which I far prefer for productivity) or low-profile (which don't feel great for gaming). It's the switch that matters.

Linear are fairly quiet but responsive mechanical switches, membrane are very quiet but squishy (not mechanical), tactile are noisy & very clicky mechanical switches. Linear is the way to go for gaming. Use o-rings to dampen the sound if they're still too noisy.

Blackwidow Mini is a 65% keyboard, Huntsman Mini is a 60%. Both work fine with XIM devices. Aside from wireless, the major difference is the Hunstman Mini has no dedicated arrow keys. That bothers me, which is why I have the Blackwidow Mini, but if you don't need them, it's a fine keyboard. I have a Hunstman Mini and handed it off to one of my kids.

Blackwidow TKL again is a good kb, I have that one too but the tactile keys are very noisy. I got mine free with a monitor purchase and would have chosen linear keys if given the option. Again, I palmed it off to one of my kids (so I can hear when she's doing her homework...ulterior motives).

Once you settle on linear mech switches for gaming, it boils down to what size kb you want and whether or not you want it to be wireless. Of the three, I far prefer the Blackwidow Mini for size and wireless capability. All three models are relatively new and should have on-board memory for macros, but you'll want to check that in the Razer product docs.

In your use case - if you want function keys, go with the Blackwidow TKL with linear switches. It's a beaut little kb for PC & console gaming and you can't go far wrong.

Ducky make good kbs, but I've seen reports of issues with various models over the years.

Thanks so much! To summarize I suppose I am targeting at the very minum a Linear TKL board, but I'll keep an eye out for the Blackwidow.

If you don't want backlighting but want the nice feel of a mechanical keyboard, look at ducky. Quality keyboards without all the flashy lights with a variety of layouts and sizes and types of switches.

One thing I like on my keyboard are multimedia controls like a volume switcher and easy way to pause and skip tracks. I also want number keys as I use the keyboard on a USB switcher so it's also what I use on my desktop. Do you? It all depends on what you want.

 But if you don't want backlighting, don't pay for it, avoid all the major gaming brands and just get one of the other mechanical keyboard brand machines - Ducky is probably the most well known.

No i just use two keyboards and a semi 90 degree desk setup. I really only need fast response, comfort and optionally macro capability

Or this one might be the best value.

I don't need a wireless, bluetooth switchers or macros and I do like to have the F keys.

What do you guys think?

Hardware Compatbility / Keyboard Recommendation Please!
« on: 10:59 PM - 12/26/21 »
I use a regular basic keyboard most of the time and hears that a mechanucal key oard makes a difference. What makes it worthwhile in you opinion?

What's the best one that's easy to use with XIM? I hear there are different kinds of mechanical keyboards, so what's the difference?

I suppose macros would be useful for certain things if a keyboard can let me do that (I don't use macros in multiplayer).

Price is negotiable.

Tldw sens 5-10 will complete ten 360s at the same time.

Can someone influential share this please? How do we get this to 343i?

Also does anyone have issuea with native MKB? I can't set switch weapon to scrolling without it being extremely touchy. Also why can't I bind E for use and reload? This is why XIM is still relevant.

I might be dumb here, but what does this mean exactly?? I'm not sure I understand...

No worries bud.

After 5 sens you reach a turn speed cap that is the same all the way up to 10. What's supposed to happen is

Higher sensitivity = 10 turns completed faster.

Im not good at explaining either and exhausted today.

Can someone help me share this please? Im not a reddit guy

The easiest would be to just create a new Reddit post and then ask the XIM Community to upvote it. That should result in a big enough starting-boost to get a discussion going. You could also post it in the XIM Community Discord. That way it should easily reach a few hundred upvotes.

The problem with Reddit is that the upvotes have to be done within 24h or else the topic will not make it into the trending list where everyone sees it.

Also Od1n are you German? Cause if you are who I think you are it's beem very nice to have your tutorials available!

Thanks man :)

Thanks for your strategy. I might do this tomorrow.

You should post this on the Halo Reddit board, lots of 343i devs are checking it plus if the community has interest in the topic it will get upvoted quite a lot.
Nice find though, maybe thats why Infinite feels slower than previous Halo games!

I did but it didnt gain traction. I rarely touch Reddit so I'd have to ask someone here takes control over this. I am a messenger or the first runner in the relay race.

It's up to you guys now, I made the current sens work for me.

Also Od1n are you German? Cause if you are who I think you are it's beem very nice to have your tutorials available!

Shared Configs / Re: My Halo Infinite Config

Really good I copied your DPI but went to a 48-50ish for the curves. Way better, I can actually snipe now!

1.4zoom x1.5
2.0zoom x1.4
5.0zoom x1.3

Feels okay man


Can you give me the exact instructions on how you changed the ballistic curve?

On the curve menu

1. Clear
2. Set value to 60
3. Use vertical bar abd bring the dot all the way up

Higher numbers are slower and smaller is faster.

I tried actual MKB and it feels good so I'm gonna give it a another chance even though I have issues with the mouse wheel being very touchy as well as not beinf able to map reload/interact as one button is a bummer. Looking forward to practicing and then comparing with the Infinite Apex ST

Game Support / Re: Halo Infinite Acceleration
« on: 07:37 PM - 11/16/21 »
It's hard to say, I have mine setup where I try to stay at the edge of the "first aim zone" unless I need to turn. I feel I am turning faster on 5 overall but I can't stand acceleration as a whole so I'm really not sure what to say. I'm gonna vote for 1 anyways

What is the reason people want to use xim instead of native mouse input o halo?
I mean on cod it is aim Assist, but here?

It was broken in the flight and MKB input affects matchmaking.

That being said Im giving MKB a shot.

Is there a way that can be changed to make the game more playable?

Try this ballistic curve and 5 look acceleration.

Code: [Select]
>>> XIM APEX [Translate Ballistics] START COPY >>>
X5BC:AAAAyAGQAlgDIAPoBLAFdwZABwgH0AiYCWAKKArwC7gMgA1IDhAO2A+gEGgRMBH3EsATiBPYFCgUeBTIFRgVaBW4FggWWBaoFvgXSBeYF+gYOBiIGNgZKBl4GcgaGBpnGrgbCBtY:X5BC
<<< XIM APEX END COPY <<<

It's designed for slow turn issues and it's the best solution I've found for smooth aim feel and turn consistency.

I play at 3600 DPI with a 17 XIM Sens and max accel ingame. All I added was that curve and am currently using SAB off. It's WIP but it did get me started.

What are you other ingame settings for deadzone and drift etc?

I went with the game's descriptions to figure it out and have no drift issues.

I'm now using 17.8 for my XIM sens and for vehicles I just have a config with 4000 boost plus added fast turn buttons.
