Feedback / Last Friday (BF3)
« on: 11:43 PM - 09/01/13 »
Hi fellow XIM peeps :)

I'm just reporting in that I had a great night the other night on BF3. My best session ever.

I know the stats may seem still pretty crap to most, if not all of you, but I managed to get 19 kills with just 26 deaths in a nightís session. Yeah, I know... I should be getting that in a twenty minute round, but I am probably the worse player ever and some would have given up by now. But I'm refusing, despite the abuse that I get on some servers LOL.

I have to say that my massive 0.73 KDR was not just because I'm able to use my keyboard and mouse now, but also because I was playing with a group of guys who know me and forgive my lack of ability. Rather than ask me to leave their team, which has happened to me in the recent past, they allow me to join in while in tanks or choppers.

I try to make myself as useful as possible by making repairs and such, and if I'm on the ground I will provide cover and help "take the objective."

So, all in all, with help from my XIM and my mates, I am making a marked improvement.

My aim now would be to perform as well with teams that, for some reason, do not like to communicate, whether through language differences or just preferring to stay quiet.
I realise that I should also make use of the other modes too. At the moment I mainly use assault and engineer and I sometimes use recon too, but Iím so bad at that I find it boring sometimes. I need to try my hand at support. I also need to start using and piloting the vehicles myself.

Iím now much better at driving tanks and other ground vehicles but Iíve still not tried choppers or jets, simply because when I first tried them I would crash pretty much instantly and I quickly gave up. Iíve not tried jets or choppers since using my XIM but after watching a couple of youtube videos last night Iíve decided to give them another try, probably this coming Friday.

Thanks for listening :)

General Discussion / What a night!

I had a great night in BF3 tonight. Two reasons... a) I play with a couple of great guys who know I'm crap but don't mind me tagging along for the action and b) XIM Edge.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still a pile of poo, but I'm much better than what I was now that I'm using keyboard and mouse.

I need to do some serious research now, on this forum, because there are issues that I need to sort out. I've not played around with my configs yet, other than to set up a key binding that I am happy with, and I think I am there now, as far as that is concerned.

I am exceeding the maximum turn speed quite regularly. I'm not sure what that means in terms of performance, but I'm wondering if I need to alter my settings so that I tame that as much as possible while still being able to aim quickly.

Then there is the issue regarding getting into tanks. I read earlier that one of you chaps has a config purely for getting into tanks and I need to look into that.

I'm not driving a tank by the way. I'm just not up to the task. I prefer to jump in with a mate and I operate the machine gun. The problem I'm having is it takes much to long to turn around. Much longer than if I use the DS3 controller. And I'm moving my G500s about three times further than I do when I am turning while on foot. In fact it might be more than that and I have to keep picking up my mouse to carry on turning.

But yeah, a great night and I'm chuffed I did as well as I did. Not so well that I felt guilty about using my XIME, but well enough to make an old man smile :)

Hardware Compatibility / Old Cyborg 3d not compatible

Hi Peeps,

I've kind of given up now with my Cyborg 3D Rumble Force joystick. I'd thought it would be a long shot anyway so I'm not that bothered to be honest.

Looks like I will have to do some research on the Logitech G13  8)

Oh, I should have said that when I plug it into my Edge the lights flash yellow three times, gap, three times, gap, three times, if you know what I mean. So I'm guessing that it telling me something, and I should check the manual...

Hi Peeps,

I couldn't find a "new members post here" topic so I thought I'd say hi in here  :)

Not much to say yet other than my XIM Edge is on order and delivery is imminent.

I'll be using it with my PS3 playing BF3. I'm absolute rubbish at FPS games. Always have been. But I like being involved in the team based games. I've bought the Edge in the hopes that I have an easier time aiming. I'm sure I'll still enter "PanicMode" and get killed anyway but you never know, I may be able to improve on my current K/D ratio of 0.08 LOL.

I'll be back later when I need some help with set-up :)
