are you saying right stock min input threshold should be 10? if thatís the case, default is 10 for me on playstation. in the ingame settings under video do you keep motion blur enabled or disabled? itís on by default

Thatís correct for right stick, default on Xbox is 13. I donít know if you need to adjust lower on PS or not. If you want it a little more responsive with slightly more AA cut through then try lowering it.

I turn motion blur off
Film grain off
And I use 85 field of view. Default is 80 on Xbox.

Same thing with PC at 244 hz, more options and a free connection.

Yeah, I've just never been that guy. I like the simplicity with consoles and my friends/family like Xbox. Thank God for XIM, otherwise I probably just wouldn't game anymore. It's not like I don't have a lot of other things to be doing. Even with these BS lock downs happening all over the world. Which is simply put "Disgusting". Anyways, I won't say anymore about that, sorry it just kind of spewed out.

You wonít be disappointed with Series X @ 1440p and 120hz. Trust me, itís a game changer and eye candy at the same time.
I can't wait, but I have to...no-one is taking pre-orders for either console  :-\

Yeah, sadly it may be February before Series X is on the shelf. It's kind of broke right now anyways. Hopefully they get this right by then. Sounds like the PS5 will actually be more readily available at this point.

I only have mine because my daughter and her "SWARM" of friends worked in unison to find me one when pre-orders went live. She literally had 8 people helping her and I still barely got it.


1440p and 120hz is super smooth game play
Nuff said. This is precisely the specs I'm targeting for next-gen gaming. 1440p, not 4K, is the gold standard for PC gaming.

We'll be lucky to get 4K @ 60FPS, which has double the display & input lag as 1440p @ 120FPS. 4K @ 120FPS will most likely be upscaled 1440p, which is a pointless performance handbrake.

On a 27" screen (optimal for desktop gaming) there's no discernable visual difference between 1440p and 4K for gaming due to pixel density, but 1440p requires significantly less system resources, resulting in significantly higher FPS.

Higher FPS means much less display and input lag, resulting in much smoother gameplay and better performance -

We don't have the option for 240FPS on console, but the difference between 60FPS and 120FPS (near enough to the test's 144FPS) is significant.

Go 1440p @ 120FPS for console gaming, if you can. You lose very little visual detail, but have significantly less display & input leg. It ain't rocket surgery peeps...

You wonít be disappointed with Series X @ 1440p and 120hz. Trust me, itís a game changer and eye candy at the same time. They just have to get this crashing issue under wraps with certain displays/monitors.

The other really cool feature about next Gen gaming on Console is you can chose what you want to download. It breaks the game down into packets. Looks pretty much like this.
- Campaign (60 Gb)
- Multiplayer (23 Gb)
- Zombies (10 Gb)

So once you complete the campaign you can simply uninstall it, immediately freeing up 60Gb on your SSD. Donít like Zombies, donít install it! Itís a really nice feature and was really needed with massive sizes of these games.

My series x crashes on cold war on my lg 4k 60hz monitor every 3 to 4 games. Switch to lg oled at 4k 120hz and it never crashes. Same console and same game. It makes no sense but it has to be display or monitor related.

Yeah I think youíre on the right track, I have no urge to play on my 78in 4K TV though. Surely they will get this patched. Which is actually good news, atleast it doesnít appear to be Hardware related.

I love your work RML, and if you seen my ST's, almost all of them are structured around your work.  One issue I'm having with this particular ST/config is when I hit the LB button.  It makes my toon melee first, then toss the grenade.  However, if I have stimpack equipped, my toon will just melee, then not use the stimpack.  So, I can throw tactical grenades, but not use the stimpack due to my toon melee'ing first, then using the "tactical".  I have tried re-installing the ST, tried wiping the config on the buttons, and redoing  them completely.  I tried turning off "inheritent" on Aim Down Sight, and turned it on.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  I want to use the stimpack!!

Lol.. I bet I have some strange button bindings under HIP Secondary. Check the secondary button assignments and clear them out. I use a small kpad with macros for extra buttons, this is where they get assigned.  ;D

I figured most people wouldn't use the "Full Config" code. I'll need to start clearing some of this stuff out before sharing the code. (although it does usually lead to some interesting conversations about my madness).

One question rml

Ur DZ is right 10/99 and left 20/99 right?

Are you talking XIM stick settings? I haven't changed anything there from default. In game DZ settings I lowered on Right Stick to 10. I believe default was 13.

It isn't the new games, that are great, look great, feel great, and then.. Crash! This has become so frustrating with Cold War that I simply stopped playing it. Until they patch this issue, I'm done!

The real fun right now for me personally is playing older games. The Battlefield games! Man, BFV, BF1 and even BF4 finally play like you would've expected years ago. On top of that BFV and BF1 look amazing on the Series X at native 1440p. Call of Duty IW, MWR, BO4, BO3 also all look and play better then ever on the Series X. Hell Even PUBG feels like a brand new game on this console.

I'm currently having so much fun with these games that Cold War is dead to me now until they fix the @#$% crashing issues. I just hope this isn't a bigger issue with 1440p and 120hz or 4k and 60hz. because right now, this doesn't work at all.

I will say I'm really looking forward to when the game is fixed. 1440p and 120hz is super smooth game play and definitely feels next Gen, until, well.. it crashes! Lol

I literally registered to give props to RML on how smooth this feels compared to the BO4 setup I was using. I spent days messing with what I was using to have something that didn't feel nearly as smooth both in hip and ads while using this setup. I upped both sensitivities to my liking but it feels soooooo much better.

Thanks man and welcome to the forum... officially.  ;)

Glad it's working for you. I have an ENORMOUS mouse pad. So yeah, most of you will want to raise your sensitivities higher then my own.

now the game begins  :o
thank you so much RML, nice work


Tried 8 different ST's, this is the smoothest by a country mile. Many thanks RML! You absolute legend

Just set it up, played a match and in my opinion that feels so much better than the bo4 st I was using. Less AA struggle bubble and overall smoother.
Good job, this is like the third time Iíve copied one of your set ups.

Thanks for the feedback, glad it's working for you.

Felt off.... idk, on PC.

But the Black Ops 4 default profile felt like 1:1 for me, maybe I'm the weird one.

The BO4 ST feels pretty floaty, check your micros compared to the MW ST.

I use the st bo4.  I switched to yours it seems really slow to me.  I must have paid no attention to an adjustment.  I'm on ps4

Well that's easy, raise your sensitivity to your preference.

I play MW 2019 at 4K 60hz on my Series X runs as smooth as silk with the high resolution pack installed.  My tv does not have vrr nor is it 120hz compatible.  My Xbox series X is running build RS_XBOX_RELEASE_2011\19041.5476.201115-2330

Anybody can sign up to be part of the Xbox insiders and get beta firmware/software builds in advance, just search for the Xbox insider hub on Xbox store.  There is a tier system depending on what betaís you want to receive.  Beta, Omega, Delta and skip ahead.

Yeah I used to be part of it and opted out awhile back, canít remember why tbh

Is the crash like the Series X just powers off?  If it is Microsoft know about and are working on a fix.

I am on the Xbox insiders (I receive Xbox firmware updates months before they go public) and below is an issue they are working on.


Additional fixes to address consoles powering off unexpectedly while in use.

Yeah thatís pretty much what itís doing. This only happens when playing Xbox Enhanced ďX/SĒ games. Iíve found the work around for Cold War. I had to uninstall the HD assets. I have been playing at native 1440p and 120hz without issues for awhile now.

For Modern Warfare 2019 I have to play at 60hz and VRR checked or it stutters like crazy! I am capable of playing at native 1440p which the High Resolution pack installed. 120hz on MW2019 doesnít seem feasible currently.

This makes it very difficult to play MW anymore as CW plays so much better at 120hz.

I dont think the xl24 monitors support 120fps over HDMI, you would need an HDMI to Displayport cable for that.

FYI, my HDMI to display port conversion cable doesnít work with the series X

Sounds like it may be related to certain monitors and TVs but thatís pure speculation right now.

Again, this is on Xbox and PS5. Theyíve obviously overlooked something here. I just read a few complaints about Cold War crashing Xbox One X as well.

Originally thought my unit may be bad but this is popping up all over the internet now. My Xbox wonít run at 4K & 60hz or 1440p & 120hz without completely crashing.

Game shutdowns and the screen goes black. The only way to fix it is by doing the following.

If there's a disc in the Xbox One console, eject it.
On the console, press and hold the Xbox button  for 10 seconds to turn off the console.
Press and hold the Xbox button  and the Eject button until you hear a beep to turn on the console. Youíll hear one beep right away and a second beep 10 seconds later. The power light will flash on before the second beep. Donít let go until the second beep occurs.
Note If you have an Xbox One S All-Digital Edition, youíll need to press and hold the Xbox button  and the Pair button instead, as your console does not have an Eject button.
In either case, this will boot your console in low resolution mode (640 ◊ 480). To reset this setting, press the Xbox button  to open the guide. Go to Profile & system > Settings > General > TV & display options, and then select the resolution you want from the Display dropdown.

They need to figure this one out, sounds like the PS5 is having similar issues and many other bugs.

Looks like Iíll be playing 1080p 120hz until they patch this.

Wow, works incredibly well. I have the same mouse (set at about 4000dpi though) and am on xbox too. This might be a big ďOofĒ on my part but I have left my XIM manager at 1000 to match the mouse and still like the results. Am I missing something by not setting to your recommendations? Should I have it set this way for all games (500xim/1000mouse)? Thank you

No 1000hz is fine for Standard multiplayer. You may have some issues with micro aim though in Warzone. 500hz helps from this standpoint. I play a lot of Battle Royale games so I stick with 500hz because I donít want to keep switching Hz and 500 is the best overall IMO.

can you explain what the curve does please?

Theyíre Anti Aim Assist curves. Which is actually a little misleading. Because the curve adds acceleration you have to lower your normal sensitivity. By lowering the sensitivity you actually have slightly more AA stick (which most will never notice). However the acceleration quickly allows you to move with much greater effect while Aim Assist is slowing down your cursor. This makes ADS aiming out side of the hit box feel slightly accelerated. But inside the hit box, itís much easier to track targets, move from target to target and go for head shots.

That being said, I wouldnít recommend AA curves for weapons that donít utilize Aim Assist. Iím not yet sure which weapons those are in Cold War but COD has a history of weapons with scopes over 4x not having any AA.

How do i use the curves

I explained there use above. If youíre talking about how to add them you just copy/paste the code.

Thanks for sharing, it works great.

Good to hear, now that Iím learning the maps Iím really tearing it up in Multiplayer. I havenít played Warzone yet and I didnít play the Beta at all.

OK I feel dumb.  Where the hell do I set "Aim Assist - Standard"?  I remember seeing this option in MW2019, but I don't see this as an option in BO:CW.   Am I blind?  lol.

Also are you an arm swinger?  At 5.5 sensitivity, with my 16000 dpi mouse, I get like hardly any movement.  I'm a wrist/twitch player.  I have to enable Default sync and 4 sensitivity to get the movement I desire, or ramp it up to like 20 sensitivity with no sync.

By Aim Assist Standard I just meant ďDefaultĒ. Iíll change the terminology. It sounds like youíre not using the curves if your sensitivity is that low. I always set my sensitivity to my 12in mouse pad. I can do a 360 in Hip and a 180 in ADS, thatís my ideal setup.

YEESSSS!!!  This actually makes the game fun. Thanks RML

Changes to OP (original post)
Raised sensitivity slightly (fine tuning)
Clarified the Dead Zone change is for Right Stick (mouse).
HIP - 5.7
ADS - 4.2

« on: 09:12 AM - 11/19/20 »
Not trying to have a go at you man, or troll... I'm just trying to understand...why would anyone choose a1440p  monitor over a 4k monitor? I mean why bother buying a series x, or even a one x if you're happy playing with low graphics quality? I bought a 4k monitor for the one x, and now use it for the series x and I don't think I could ever go back. What am I missing here?

Ha, no worries.. I completely understand where youíre coming from. The bottom line is ďPERFORMANCEĒ. This is a Xim forum, people here are always looking for the competitive edge, Iím no different. Iím going after the BEST experience at 120hz and for Xbox this is it right now. Honestly, I canít tell a whole lot of difference between 4K and 1440p, I can really feel the difference though between 60 & 120hz though.


... or troll...

 :o its RML!

Lol, True!

What am I missing here?
120 FPS. It makes a HUGE difference for competitive MP gaming.

4K and 1440p look practically the same on a 27" screen. It's not until you step up to 40" territory that you'll notice much of a difference and that's way too big for the desktop (my screen is 43", 4K @ 120Hz on a desk...it's stupid for shooters).

1440p @ 144Hz is the gold standard for PC gaming with buttery smooth framerates, stellar visuals and crispy input. 1440p is the perfect pixel density for 27", textures eat up less than half of 4K HDD capacity and most console shooters should run at a consistent 120 FPS @ 1440p vs 60 FPS @ 4K.

If you're a casual, go 4K for the marginally prettier pixels and ganked FPS.
If you're serious, go 1440p for higher FPS, lower input lag and little loss of visual fidelity.

Hopefully PS5 gets 1440p support down the track, but support for 1440p on XBSX is a big reason I'm maining it this console gen. I can do 4K @ 120 FPS on my screen, but few console games will be up to it. 1440p @ 120 FPS is much more attainable and I'll be running at that resolution if given the option.

Nailed It!

I bought this TV -  48"  LG CX -  OLED, 4k, 120hz, HDR, FreeSync, VRR, HDMI 2.1,

And its absolutely amazing first time I have ever gamed on a TV over a monitor.  Its basically a large monitor and I couldnt be happier.  Insanely clean picture with very good performance.  No going back for me. 

Nice, thanks for the recommendation.
