Member Projects / [XIM1 XIM2]XIM Hub 1.2.0
« on: 07:49 PM - 07/11/09 »
Latest version: 1.2.0 (XIM 2 Only)

Okay, this time I have an actual program. XIM Hub allows you to quickly launch and switch between configurations.

Simply save the file to your XIM 360 folder and run. The program must be in the same folder that XIM.exe and all of your configs are in. I suggest making a shortcut on your Desktop.

  • Quickly launch any configuration from your XIM 360 directory.
  • Switch configurations in less than a second.
  • Hotkey configurations.
  • Switch between the Hub window and XIM with one button.
  • Save your current configuration to a new file.
  • Move the XIM window and adjust its transparency.
  • Includes a rapidfire add-on.


Please leave any comments or suggestions.


Version 1.2.0 (XIM 2 ONLY):
  • Removed the need for XIM4Hub.exe.
  • Ctrl-Enter once again lets you edit the loaded configuration in-XIM.
  • Ctrl-Backspace allows you to edit the temporary configuration in-XIM.
  • Added Delete & Rename support for the config browser.
  • Slight reorganization of menus.
  • Automatic Updates. (off by default, you can turn it on in Settings)
  • Better Home button recognition.
  • Remade the rapidfire utility.
  • Added refresh option in case you add a new .xim to the folder.
  • And more bugfixes.

The XIM1 download is the same one as before.

It's always a real pain to constantly switch back to the XIM program to change to the config values, so I played around with Cheat Engine to find some pointers for the values. For some reason they don't always work. I'll see if I can find better pointers, but tomorrow I'm going out of town to visit family. Anyway, you can hotkey values (exact values, or increments to increase/decrease by). CE also has the ability to generate trainers, so as an example I made a program that swaps the sensitivity and XY Ratio on-the-fly to help with games like Halo 3. Only issues are that it doesn't save the values and doesn't work with the Smart Mouse System itself. Just use a normal config for Halo 3.

If anyone is any good with Cheat Engine I could use some help. I've hardly ever used it before.

Feedback / Downright amazed!

First off, I'm a console gamer. The extent of my PC experience is Halo PC/CE. My dad plays Halo PC on a nearly daily basis, but it's the only PC game he plays.
My brother, who lives across the US, often plays Halo 3 with me. After a while my dad felt a bit left out (and out of date). He's God-awful with a controller, so we looked for a mouse/keyboard adapter. We found the XFPS.
After a handful of reviews we figured that the XFPS wasn't a good option. Well, a few weeks ago I stumbled onto this site. The $180 price tag really threw me off, but from the sound of it the XIM2 was perfect. Best investment ever. I originally ordered this for my dad, but he'll be lucky to pry this off my dead body. Once everything was set up I had a few friends and my dad try the XIM out.
My PC-gamer friend said it felt exactly like on his PC.
My 360-gamer friend wouldn't let me back in my seat.
My dad now wants his own 360 and XIM.
We all approve.

I really don't know what the whole "PC experience" should be like, but this is a million times better than fighting with the analog sticks. Anyone who is currently a console gamer shouldn't jump to conclusions about the XIM, though. It really only helps with precision aiming. My ability to snipe has gone through the roof, but with any other weapon I'm the same as with a controller. Not only that, but FPS games are more fun. Instead of using the analog stick to aim, I just aim. It's hard to describe.

And I never noticed how terrible the autoaim was on Halo 3 until I tried playing with the XIM.

Xbox / VGA issue.

So I grabbed a VGA cable for the 360 off Amazon, but I'm having an issue with ghosting. The cable itself doesn't look like the official Microsoft version (cheap and plasticy). I thought I was getting the official one. It didn't bug me that much until I noticed the God-awful amount of ghosting it created. Any text I could clearly see multiple times to the right of it. Even objects in game I can see faint copies of. I don't know if ghosting is the right word. The effect is static on the screen, not from movement as I'd think of ghosting.
Is this a common problem with any of you that are using VGA cables with the 360 or is my VGA cable broken?

I don't want to bump the topic, so I'll just add in here that I picked up the official VGA cable and the picture is perfect. Don't ever get a third party version.
