General Discussion / One handed Dual Sense controller mod
« on: 06:43 AM - 01/13/22 »
I take my hat off to him for coming up with this, and making it free to download. For anyone with the use of just one arm this will make gaming possible.


So will we have to set the in game settings to max like we do for Apex ?

The reason I ask is that the max look speed is a bit fast for me when I have to pick up the controller for some parts of a game with Apex, and since we will now be playing with a controller ... will we have to set the in game settings at full sensitivity?

So when I saw the Nexus reveal I thought it was going to be the solution to all those games that don't work with Apex.
However in OBsiv's blog it states "Motion Aim uses the same high precision Smart Translator system as XIMís console mouse adapters"

So my question before buying one would be ...  will it be easier to make ST's for those games with bad look mechanics, or will we still have the same problems that the Apex has with those types of games?

Beta / Can't install latest manager beta for Series X
« on: 06:33 AM - 06/18/21 »
I asked about this in the manager thread, but got no answer.
So I downloaded the latest beta on my samsung android tablet to replace an earlier version.
When the installation started a message quickly popped up saying "app not installed".

So I can't upgrade to the latest version for Xbox series x versions.
Any idea when this will be available on the play store?

I downloaded the latest version on the app store to my phone to see if a newer manager would accept the beta, and the same thing happened.

Both phone and tablet have location sharing enabled.

Anyone know if the modmic magnetic base clasp will cause any problems with the planar magnetic drivers on the headphones?

Just got the Hifiman HE-4XX fron Drop, they are my 1st Planars and I have to say that I'm blown away ... it's crazy, but it doesn't feel like you're wearing headphones.

General Discussion / Footswitch as an extra button for Nav
« on: 06:57 AM - 04/10/18 »
Just bought a cheap and cheerful Sodial footswitch ... took ages to come from China.
It's just plug and play with Xim, comes pre-programmed to the letter "B" which would be ok for Nav users.
I'm using a G13 which has plenty of keys, but I like a footswitch for snipe/zoom ads in The Division, and this cheap switch works.

Just ordered a Scythe double switch as it looks as if it's built to last, will then use the Sodial for push to talk.

XIM APEX Discussions / ADZ ... only 2 left in stock
« on: 06:10 PM - 03/06/18 »
Just checked the site a few minutes ago and it's showing "only 2 left in stock"

I sit about 2 metres away from the TV using a pull out table from under my desk.
When I used the Xim4 the cable that came with it was long enough but with the Apex it's all changed.

Would it make any difference if I ...

Plugged the Apex into the Xbox and used the USB extension to reach the table and then connect the hub to the extension ... or

Plug the USB extension cable into the xbox then connect both Apex and hub to the extension at the table.

XIM APEX Discussions / OBsIV and Amazon
« on: 06:59 AM - 03/05/18 »
If OBsIV ever changed his mind about selling through the Amazon marketplace would he have to pay a monthly fee to Amazon?

If not and it is simply a case of charging more for his product then it is pretty obvious that buyers will pay more.
I'm not a huge fan of the Giant that Amazon has grown into by eating up the retail trade, but I think that the way the Xim storefront is run needs change.

OBsIV wants to keep the Xim at a reasonable price, but his integrity is unwittingly creating a black market for others.

My shop account details have my email address, so why is that I get a message telling me to "enter a valid email address" when I'm trying to get to the checkout with an Apex in my cart?

I lost out on my Apex earlier tonight because the shop would not let me proceed to the checkout because of the email address, when I typed the same email in again it said my cart was empty.

I'm not complaining, but it is going to be a waste of time doing the lottery of getting into the shop, if the same thing happens again.

Can you tell me why I get this message?

XIM APEX Discussions / This is beyond a joke
« on: 05:43 PM - 03/04/18 »
So I got into the shop at opening, was already logged in, then put an Apex in my shopping cart. Updated my credit card details and clicked proceed. The shop then asked me to put in a "valid email address" ? My email was already there from my account details but I typed it in again and clicked proceed  .... bang !! back to the storefront and no Apex.

This whole thing is just so Mickey Mouse but I'm not laughing ... I'm not angry, I just feel stupid being a part of the whole charade.

ADZ pulled my plonker earlier on in the day by sending me an email at 4.40 am telling me the store would open at 7.00am, thanks lol .. I had just gone to bed 10 minutes earlier after trying the Xim store at 4.00am because I got the American way of reading dates wrong, I know stupid me thought it was the 3rd  day not the 3rd month lol.

Wake me up when the Circus leaves town.

General Discussion / Logitech G13 Amazon uk price cut
« on: 06:08 AM - 01/13/17 »
So I was looking at prices for the G13 the other day, and they were all at about the £79 mark at Overclockers etc .. and Amazon were out of stock.

Checked again today and Amazon UK have the G13 on sale now for £47.99 .. decent price  :)

General Discussion / Sugru ... make your own?
« on: 03:11 PM - 10/03/15 »
I've used Sugru a lot and one of the things that bugs me is, if I open a sachet of Sugru and only use a little for a keycap or something ... I end up throwing the remainder in the bin.

I'm looking to make a nub for a little 4 way Dpad, and today I came across this site,


I like the idea of just being able to mix up a small amount of the stuff ... haven't tried it yet, but it looks ok, and you can colour it with a few drops of artists linseed oil paints.

So I went back to GTA5 on the Xbox One last night after not having played it for a while, and got yet another Rockstar Update before I could get the game started.

Started up Gta Online and the 3rd person look mechanic was all over the place and totally unplayable.

I've played it a lot in the past, and thought it worked quite well on the xim4, everything is set up as suggested for the GTA5 ST.

I then set up the GTA5 1st person (X1.2*) and it played ok, but I can't get used to Rockstars idea of 1st person ... move sideways a fraction when you sprint and you do an auto 180.  ::)

The thing is when I tried 3rd person with the X1.2* ... it felt much better than the 3rd person  with the X1.1* translator.

I realise that we can't expect Mist to keep redoing the game over and over everytime Rockstar changes things .. I just wondered if any other forum members have played GTA5 recently and noticed this.

Btw my xim4 has 20150606 Manager/Firmware ... and my android has not been connected to the internet since the latest ads toggle firmware was released ... so my configs are all working well (apart from GTA)

General Discussion / GTA V to get 1st person mode ?
« on: 06:32 PM - 09/21/14 »
Just read about this online ... wonder if there's any truth in it.
Would definitely make me buy it again for the xbox one if it happens.
