Xbox / Destiny 2/ Trials
« on: 11:41 AM - 03/09/20 »
With the Trials of Osiris returning this weekend, I wanted to get a post out here for those looking for players to run cards with. My gamertag is in the signature. Just shoot me a message on there if you're interested and I'll get back to you.

I live in the Eastern portion of the U.S. and play in the evenings and Saturday morning. My first priority will be to play with clan-mates, but it's quite frequent that I'll pick up randoms.

General Discussion / New Logitech mouse: G604 light speed

This mouse will be for those who are looking for more buttons. Think revamped G602. Weight is hefty but for those who prioritize buttons this just may be the one.

I don't see myself ever using this device, however i'm curious as to some of the potential applications. I bet there might be some compatibility hurdles to clear though.                                                                                                                                                      https://www.amazon.com/Steelplay-Drive-Toshiba-DDRET101-Vault-Bundle/dp/B01LXR35VN/ref=pd_bxgy_63_img_2/130-4354354-3902728?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01LXR35VN&pd_rd_r=0c973ee1-885f-11e9-8b74-75f209b90584&pd_rd_w=sLE3D&pd_rd_wg=Zm7mb&pf_rd_p=a2006322-0bc0-4db9-a08e-d168c18ce6f0&pf_rd_r=56F5S044MD4DKDWWEVAJ&psc=1&refRID=56F5S044MD4DKDWWEVAJ

General Discussion / Gateron Optical Silver Switch?
« on: 11:51 AM - 05/23/19 »
Anybody know of a place that you can purchase Gateron Optical Silver Switches? I have a Gateron Hot-Swap board that I would like to replace some switches on, but I cannot find them anywhere online.

General Discussion / Kickstarter New Keyboard

I know there are some tech junkies on this board that would appreciate if this product made it to production so I'm spreading the love :P.


Looks like a potentially great product!!

General Discussion / Bluetooth Headset XBOX One Setup?
« on: 03:47 PM - 01/03/19 »
Not an audio expert by any means so I thought I would send out a post to see what others are doing with their headset situation while playing with a XIM.

My problem:

Okay so I'm getting tired of my short headset chord being draped over my keyboard. It's too short to run underneath. I purchased a longer Aux chord and found that my voice is not being sent back to the XBOX. It's frustrating that the XBOX controller (or even the darn console) cannot wirelessly transmit and receive audio signals by now.

I have a nice pair of bluetooth earbuds with a mic and was wondering if anyone has found a way to utilize bluetooth headsets with the XBOX One yet?

My Hypothesis:

I was thinking that If I simply connected a bluetooth transmitter/receiver directly to the XBOX controller I should (in theory) be able to receive the audio signal from the XBOX and also transmit my voice audio back to the controller with little to no lag. I was thinking of using something like this https://www.amazon.com/TaoTronics-Bluetooth-Transmitter-Receiver-Simultaneously/dp/B01EHSX28M/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1546551078&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=bluetooth+receiver+%26+transmitter&psc=1.

Anybody try this out? Or has anyone else found a way to get game audio and party chat audio to a wireless headset or earbuds?

How many people are familiar with or actually use this keyboard. It seems like a master gaming keyboard which also doubles as a daily-typing/work keyboard. I don't understand how this keyboard doesn't get more hype. The fact that this keyboard has: 1) Hot-swappable switches
                        2) Dual-funtion keys
                        3) 6 buttons for the thumb
                        4) Essentially a left-handed gamepad

The list of unique features really goes on and on. The only thing I can think of is the cost restrictive factor. Fully loaded it's over $300.00 US.

I am tempted to drop the money on one and would like to know more about the software and other potential cons of the device.

So I currently use the g502 and I have no complaints. Great Mouse. However, I frequently find myself binding most in game actions to the mouse buttons. Primarily because they are actions that I would like to perform while strafing in or out of cover. Thus the question arises. Are there any good mice out there that A) specifically work well with XIM APEX and B) have one to two more easily accessible buttons than the G502?

Currently on my radar are the Steelseries rival 500 and the Roccat Leadr. I know that the rival 500 has a pixart 3360 so it theoretically should play nice with XIM Apex and the Leadr has a Roccat custom version of the 3360. I think they call it a 3361.

Anyone use either of these mice or have suggestions for other mice I should look into? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

XIM APEX Discussions / K95 platinum setup question
« on: 05:32 PM - 07/08/18 »
So I just purchased a k95 platinum (PSA - they're on sale on Amazon) and I have a question.

As I understand it, the k95 platinum draws quite a bit of power and I'm concerned that the default apex hub will not have enough power. As I understand it, there is an option to insert a power adapter into the back of the apex. I saw on the forums that someone posted the specs of the power supply,  but I ran a search and can't seem to find the info.
Any one want to help a brother out?


XIM APEX Discussions / Mechanical Keyboard
« on: 07:23 AM - 06/28/18 »
I currently use the Razer Tartarus V2 and have 0 complaints. However, as I continue to use XIM Link and AHK, I am realizing why it would be nice to have a full keyboard. I am looking for advice.

The primary factors I weigh are: 1. Functionality
                                                    2. Features
                                                    3. Software (if applicable)
                                                    4. Price

I could not care less about RGB and/or lighting features. I am not particular to a certain key switch (never used a mechanical keyboard) but I have educated myself on different switch types and qualities. Any help would be much appreciated.

XIM Link / Hotkey for XBOX button?
« on: 02:07 PM - 06/12/18 »
I searched the forums (and used the good old google), but couldn't find an answer as to whether there is a hotkey for the XBOX button in AHK. I am trying to write a simple script for screenshots and clipping.

Anybody have any insight?

Edit: I figured a way around it. I just realized/remembered (palmtoface) that the apex app can assign a regular keybinding to the function of the XBOX button for me. Thus all I have to do is set the activation to whichever keybinding I choose. Still new to the whole script writing thing.

P.S. I tried to delete the post but it looks like my blunder is meant to remain here for all to see lol.
