General Discussion / Capture Card Advise?
« on: 01:41 PM - 04/08/18 »
So I decided that I wanted to get into recording some game play videos for YouTube, I bought the Elgato HD60 Pro and played a few games with it using the HDMI passthrough, I noticed that even in passthrough the colours were off, especially reds, I read that it's because the video is converted from RGB to YUV causing certain colours to be off. I then discovered that some people bypass this problem by using a HDMI splitter to go off to the capture card/monitor separately. I have tried a few different powered HDMI splitters, all of which seem to make the game appear like it is dropping frames, all apart from this one https://www.amazon.co.uk/SMARTOOO-63021-HDMI-Splitter-60HZ-1-2-out-2-0b/dp/B076P82L5J/ which appears smooth, however there seems to be some noticeable input lag from console to monitor, I only probably notice because of how responsive everything is now with the Apex. However I would like to know if anyone else found a way of making this work? It's playable but it feels like my aim is on rollerskates because of the delay. Playing & recording at 1080p.

Feedback / Apex impressions and feedback
« on: 08:10 PM - 03/05/18 »
Just before I start, I don't usually leave feedback on anything however with this I simply had to.

I received my Apex today, all I can say is, this product is Amazing, I've been a Xim user since the Xim 3, and have been recently using the Xim 4 for playing on the Xbox One X on COD WW2. I always thought the Xim 4 was very good as a KB/M adapter for console, however this is on another level.

In terms of the raw performance in game, in COD WW2 specifically the movement feels very responsive, just like playing a PC game, It's something I noticed straight away. Any floaty / input lag movement which was present on the Xim 4 is now gone. This is certainly down to the new 1000hz polling support on the Apex. I tested it on 12K DPI on my Logitech G Pro, the same as I used on Xim 4 and the difference is night and day. I also played around with the smoothing setting on the Beta firmware to help with the jitter introduced with the 1000hz polling and I found '10' was a good value to remove the jitter, but I also found it helped to track targets with the aim assist as an added bonus. I find aiming 10x better on this than on Xim 4 which has increased my enjoyment of gaming by far, and this is only day one. Some guy on the opposite team on WW2 messaged me first game to say he reported me to XBL and that hasn't happened to me in this game until now! ;D

I do like the new Apex app a lot, I was very impressed that it detected my keyboard brand, I use an A4 Tech Bloody keyboard! there was no way I was expecting that, as I know that not many Xim users use the bloody range, no idea how you guys did this but, bonus points!

The only thing I could suggest for improvement in the app for me personally, would be to add support for 3 decimal places for the Xim sensitivity if possible, I am very picky with the sensitivity I use and I always wish I could test a value in between two of the 2 decimal place sensitivities available in the app. It's probably because I use 12K DPI so the Xim sensitivities have greater differences between values, I could go lower with DPI but I like the feel of high DPI with the Xim.

Also I found it a little bit difficult to tap in the box to change sensitivity, maybe the box could be a bit larger, could just be me.

All in all, brilliant product and very good value for money. I look forward to seeing what the Xim team will bring in the future and am very glad to be part of this community :)

XIM APEX Discussions / Apex Smoothness Setting
« on: 06:09 PM - 01/18/18 »
Just quick question regarding the Apex smoothness setting for the Xim team/early release testers, does the smoothness setting work in a similar way to angle snapping within mouse settings to get a more linear movement? or does it work/feel different?

General Discussion / Xim 4 + Xbox One X vs PS4 Pro
« on: 12:40 PM - 11/20/17 »
Does anyone have any feedback on how the Xim 4 plays with the Xbox One X in comparison with the PS4 Pro?

I noticed a few people have commented on the feel of the aiming being different on Xbox One X, is this a negative against the Xbox One or just did it just require sensitivity adjustment? I plan to upgrade my console from the standard PS4 this year, the raw specs of the Xbox One X do appear better but since we all use the Xim, it would be good to get an idea first from Xim users who have had experience with both or either console. :)

Hardware Compatibility / A4Tech Bloody B830 Keyboard
« on: 07:41 AM - 04/15/17 »
Hi Guys,

I recently ordered a A4Tech Bloody B830 Keyboard and hopefully will be able to use it with the Xim 4, has anyone had any experience with this keyboard or any of the A4Tech/Bloody range keyboards for use with a Xim 4?

If the keyboard is compatible I will update this post.

if it is not initially compatible, are there any steps to provide the Xim team with more info to help make it compatible, I'm not sure what the process is.


XIM 4 Discussions / DSS2 dead, audio setup advice
« on: 01:02 PM - 03/18/17 »
Hi guys,

My DSS2 recently burnt out, I don't know whether it was because it was connecting to a powered usb hub but anyway, In the mean time I will just be using my soundblaster play 2 to get usb audio.

I was using the audio setup from rezneffix 'Custom PS4 & Xbox One Audio Setup' thread

Is this still the best configuration for optical audio out/headphones or are there any better ways before I order a new DSS2?

Thanks in advance

Game Support / BF1 Scoped weapons
« on: 04:10 AM - 02/11/17 »
Can anyone recommend settings for sniping in BF1? I use zombie's curve from http://xim4.com/community/index.php?topic=50650.0 with Auto Rotation: ON 
Aim Slowdown: ON, then RML's curve for ADS with hip translator set for both hip/ads with the same sensitvity, this is good for non scoped weapons however the aim assist is a bit strong for sniping. I would prefer aim assist on, is there a way of keeping it on but maintaining the ability to be precise with a scoped weapon, RML's ADS curve is good but it doesn't seem to work too well for sniping, I tried without a curve but the sensitivity is too slow

Any help would be appreciated!

XIM 4 Discussions / Console Recommendations
« on: 05:19 PM - 01/02/17 »

Not been active within the Xim community for around 2 years, used to play with a Xim3 + Xbox 360 but have since been exclusively PC gaming. I was looking to start using a Xim + console again to play with friends. Which console are most people using in conjunction with the Xim4? or is it all personal preference? I was kinda leaning towards the PS4 because of the crash bandicoot remake trilogy, however are there any other differences in terms of console or Xim performance that I should take into account?


XIM 3 Discussions / New controller
« on: 04:57 PM - 04/08/14 »
I just bought a new controller to use as a second controller when friends come round to play xbox, I tried it on call of duty, the first game I plugged the controller in, I didn't touch it but the crosshairs would move by itself, I fixed it by playing with the controller and breaking in the thumbsticks a little bit. Using it connected to my XIM3 compared to my older controller which is exactly the same model (Official Xbox controller for windows) the movement feels kinda different in a good way it feels more responsive, sort of like the feeling you get when you use a slightly higher deadzone on a standard translator. Is this all in my head or can a different controller affect the movement in game with the xim?

XIM 4 Discussions / XIM4 1ms response
« on: 02:25 PM - 04/05/14 »
I just read some news on the Chronusmax website regarding "speed up settings" I wondered if anyone can shed some light on what these features might mean and if we can expect to see something similar on the XIM4. Is this like what we had on the XIM3 and edge where the device polls at 1000hz but the xbox still restricts it to 125hz? I have heard from other xim users that it is very responsive but I don't know whether this is due to the inframe in or out feature as I don't really know what this means.

Speed Up Settings:

Inframe Out: Check if there is more data to send to the Console within the current USB frame. This setting helps improve performance and reduce input lag.

Inframe In: Check if there is more data to receive from the Controller within the current USB frame. This setting helps improve performance and reduce input lag.

1ms Response: A response time of one millisecond is the fastest response time possible for USB devices. Disabling this option will make the device run at the original speed of the Console currently in use.

XIM 3 Discussions / EU/UK Xbox 360 Players
« on: 07:06 AM - 01/02/14 »
Are there any EU/UK players left that still play on the 360, I know a lot of people are playing next gen now. I play COD Ghosts and Battlefield 4. I'm just looking for some casual players to play public objective game modes with and maybe some clan wars as it requires 4 players.

Add my GT and just send a message saying 'from xim forums' so I know who you are.

Smart Translators / COD: Ghosts ST feedback
« on: 05:19 PM - 11/14/13 »
I have tried the COD Ghosts smart translator that was just released, the hipfire ST seems okay but for some reason the ADS ST feels off, like my aim doesn't always go where I want it to, when I move horizontally it sometimes goes slightly diagonal. It feels like I have negative accel too as if I'm playing using an ST that isn't meant for the game i'm playing. I've never had this experience with the Black Ops 2 or MW3 STs in their respective games, it's playable but I feel it could perform better somehow.

If you are from the UK, play Black Ops 2 (XBOX) with a XIM and fancy a few casual games and maybe some league play please let me know. I play mostly core modes but just started playing league play and somehow got into masters by carrying randoms. I normally play with controller users, I wanted to play with a few xim players to see what it is like to play with players than can actually aim lol.

My stats aren't anything special but XIM > controller.
