So, I got the replacement back and it's the same thing which means that it's not a faulty controller but a design issue. This is unfortunate because Nexus is such a great and versatile controller. The d-pad would otherwise be my favorite for retro style games. For future versions I'd suggest working this issue out and maybe making it 5-10% smaller and lighter.

It's sort of like, I can press all other directions with an intuitive amount of force and not think about it because they will consistently register. This is about half way point between when the button is at rest and fully bottomed out. With the right button, I have to consciously bottom it out with force or it won't register at least half of the time.

I tried using Nexus to play Rogue Legacy 2 because the Xbox Series controller felt laggy on my PC and while Nexus feels a lot better in every way except I think I got a wonky D-Pad. All other directions work fine but Right button has to be pressed all the way in and with some force compared to the other directions to register.

Ok, nvm. I plugged everything in and restarted ReWASD and it worked without changing anything. Weird.

It's the paid version, I can modify curve in the advanced options but I ended up copying and pasting the Valorant config just to make sure I didn't screw something up.

My adapter and Nexus have the latest firmware and I calibrated the nexus. The only thing I haven't tried is updating manager to the latest version. I'm on 306.

That's weird. I'm using the Generic Alpha (PC) ST with Lithe's mouse config copy and pasted and also Lithe's Valorant ReWASD config. But there's a massive deadzone on it, both on the sticks and the motion controls.

I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for this one because I've tried the Generic Alpha config and it just doesn't feel right. An ST trained on a native mouse PC game would save my Nexus from sitting there collecting dust.

I don't know if my settings would be helpful because it's an odd setup. For example, I assume most people would want to use (A) as left mouse click whereas I use LT as the Left Mouse click and RT for right mouse click. Not because they coincide but because I always use LT as the shoot button on gamepads.

Basically, is there a 1:1 ST of a native mouse PC game so you could use the Nexus instead of mouse on pc with some remapping software like ReWASD?

Does this overwrite the experimental stick/gyro priority feature?

One thing I forgot to mention is that if you're targeting an enemy and your controller is shifted to one side and you need to make any minor adjustment, like say when they're ADAD strafing to throw your aim off, you're still using the opposite side's hand to make those micro adjustments.

So, the way I use this technique is: I have an imaginary (about) 160 degrees of NEXUS motion allowed for camera movement from the controller being centered - 80 NEXUS degrees to the left and 80 NEXUS degrees to the right. I set up my configs to allow for a 180-degree camera turn each way within that 80 degree NEXUS movement for HIP aiming and 45 degree camera movement in ADS. Most games for me end up having 100-115 sensitivity for HIP aiming and 54-64 for ADS.

My HIP aiming Vertical ratio is about 40-45% depending on the game and 50% for ADS. For stick aiming Vertical is 60%. I lowered my stick deadzones as low as possible before getting drift which is about 4400 for right stick and 3800 for left stick.

It is counter intuitive and does take a bit of practice but definitely pays off because of how our joints work.


I don't understand any of this but want to. Can you help me understandings please?

Imagine you're holding the controller completely level and the crosshair is centered in game and you're doing nothing. Now, you need to look left in the game. Instead of pulling or rotating the controller left with your left hand you push it or rotate it left with your right hand meanwhile your left hand is doing nothing but relaxing and acting as support for Nexus. When you need to recenter the controller from left position or your controller is tilted to the left you still use your right hand to recenter from left.

If you need to look right in the game. Instead of pulling or rotating the controller right with your right hand you push it or rotate it right with your left hand meanwhile your right hand is doing nothing but relaxing and acting as support for Nexus. When you need to recenter the controller from right position or your controller is tilted to the right you still use your left hand to recenter from right.

It takes a little bit to get down into muscle memory but for me discovering this technique was a huge improvement and the difference between buyer's remorse and having fun with the Nexus. It allows me to do almost all of my aiming with the gyro, only using the stick for 180 flick turns and the occasional recenter.

Thanks for the reply, better to know than to hope.

Here's the technique I found that made all the difference:

"From a centered Nexus position make all movement between left and centered with your right hand, only using your left hand as a base for support. Make all movement between right and centered with your left hand using your right hand as a base for support. You have a much larger range of motion with the wrist going in rather than out. This allows you to lower the sensitivity and have more precision."

Without this technique I was lost and just couldn't find a way to translate my intentions to in game movement with any amount of accuracy but after I figured it out the Nexus clicked with me. I'm starting to track targets, snap to targets, trap targets with something that is starting to approach mouse aim. My bigger issues now aren't aim but memorizing buttons and getting used to stick movement and things like circle strafing.

I updated the post to describe the technique a little more accurately.
