There are several generic templates right at the bottom of the games list in XIM APEX Manager. Try them and adjust the bottom point of the Ballistics Curve to find the deadzone size. It's all experimentation.

The XIM site clearly states that it's a mouse & keyboard adapter :shrug:

XIM won't affect the Xbox controller. All "enhancements" are for the mouse, keyboard and an optional joystick like a Sony Nav controller.

What mikey means is you can still use the Xbox controller, which will continue to behave as a vanilla Xbox controller.

Support / Re: [ACTIVE] Adding Power to Hub
« on: 09:27 PM - 09/14/19 »
If youíre really worried about it, buy a powered USB hub to replace XIMís hub.

I personally use a power plug on the USB hub, another powering the Titan Two and two more 5V USB cables to wall adapters in my setup with zero issues and have done so for years.

Just be sure to use exact specs and buy from a local supplier so it meets all government standards. Buying from eBay and Amazon is cheaper, but itís a roll of the dice. Better to spend a bit more to make sure your gear doesnít melt.

You will have less AA in BO4 using Sync Off, 1000Hz, 12K DPI, digital movement (WASD) and a sprinkling of Steady Aim &/or Boost than at lower RR, Sync, DPI and Polling rates.

The objective is not to remove AA, but to make hitbox entry easier through BO4ís nasty AA bubble.

Just a guess, but Sync at anything but Off is an artificial value that is not expected by the console and may be more vulnerable to sources of lag in the game engine, netcode, your ping, server ping, peer ping, tickrate...whatever.

What the console is expecting is 125Hz on XB1 and 250Hz on PS4. Going above that (250,500,1000Hz) or below that (30,60,120Hz) may result in greater variance and may feel good or bad depending on your current internet, server and peer connections (all other factors are constant, so rule them out).

If you want the native console behaviour, go 125Hz on XB1 and 250Hz on PS4. If you want XIM4 behaviour, go 125Hz. If that feels off and you want to manage AA, which XIM isnít intentionally designed to do, play with Response Rate. If you get jitter, iron it out wth Sync. It ainít rocket science.

XIM APEX Discussions / Re: Sync Slow

I think he means in terms of input, not the framerate itself.

A 60FPS game has a processing loop of 16.66ms. A 30 FPS game has a processing loop of 33.33ms. Using Slow instead of Common means halving the expected input. That may feel ok by ironing out bumps and increasing AA, or it may feel floaty and delayed. Itís best to try it and work out the pros and cons.

Sync Off at 125Hz is effectively double the output polling of Common (60Hz) and quadruple Slow (30Hz). Thatís why it has less AA.

But 125Hz should still exhibit more AA than Off at 250, 500 or 1000Hz.

Thereís nothing secret going on here - we have plenty of options for fine-tuning on Apex that didnít exist on XIM4. It sounds cliche, but use whatever feels right and stick to it.

Yeah, any USB hub should do the job. Iíd personally go with a powered 4-port USB 2.0 hub, so you wonít have to deal with power issues and have an extra USB device slot.

Youíve hit the limit, backup and delete one youíre not using.

Both of you could be right. Fortunately I can run my xim apex the same way now for leagues. I'm climbing into diamond this week thanks to it.
So you settled on Sync Off @ 125Hz? What about mouse polling - 500 or 1000Hz? T2 Input & Output?

Check the first thread in the XIM Link forum, it has links to the prerequisite files - https://community.xim.tech/index.php?topic=63604.0

Have you tried replacing the USB cable from the controller to XIM APEX? That's the most common cause of these symptoms.

The keyboard itself may be incompatible, but given it stays up for a few minutes before it bombs, it's more likely to be the cable.

Another possibility is a faulty USB port on the controller. Try another controller too, if you have one.

What I'd be testing is if this happens with just the controller attached direct to XIM APEX with and without the hub. That'll help to figure out if a faulty cable, controller USB port, or USB hub is the issue.

If youíre on PS4 Pro or use a DualShock 4 V2, update to the latest XIM4 firmware (or a Steady Aim build with PS4 Pro support) and set PS4 > Settings > Devices > Controllers > Communication Mode to USB cable.

Also ensure the controller is fully charged.

Depending on the game, a PS4, PS3, XB1 or 360 controller will be supported. XB1 is the safest bet.
