Are you streaming to OBS on PC? Use the audio from the HDMI signal via Elgato HD60s. No chat link required.

I have a HD60s hooked up to my Mac at the same time as the PC setup (HDMI splitter > HD60 Pro & HD60s) and the audio works fine.

If you can't figure out the audio setup without the Chatlink cable, get a Ground Loop Isolator and pipe the Chatlink cable through that. It should eliminate the buzz.

Nvidia Shield is not a XIM supported platform. A Titan Two can be used to connect XIM Apex to Shield, however the game configs are not built for that device and you may experience poor tracking or unusual behaviour.

In this case, given you only want to use a G13 on Shield, a Titan Two may do the job. I'd be asking over on the www.consoletuner.com forums if it'll work.

Did you order the Compact or original? Compact's towers are much better for console gaming.

I'm almost finished the arduous setup process of streaming PS4 to Twitch and YouTube, while doing a pro job of it.

By far the easiest part is streaming the console to OBS. The two simplest ways to do this (IMHO) are the Elgato HD60 Pro PC card, or the Elgato Cam Link USB dongle. Cam Link is an excellent substitute for Elgato HD or HD60 external cards and works on both PC and Mac in OBS. It can also stream a DSLR or mirrorless camera to OBS for better quality head shots.

The Elgato Chatlink cable is only needed if you're using the DS4 controller for chat. It's an affordable solution and works well enough, but audio quality will suffer due to the headset mic. Discord and a PC-connected mic is a better stream chat solution, but we all have budget limitations.

The hardest part (for me) has been setting up the audio chain in OBS to eliminate computer fan, air-conditioner noise and mouse & keyboard clicks through the mic. I've gone through several mics before settling on a Rode Procaster dynamic XLR mic, instead of the typical condenser mics you'll see on Twitch (which pickup a lot of noise). A headset mic won't sound as good, but it's also less vulnerable to bg noise. A USB mic is convenient and some are really good (I have a Razer Elite Pro and it's great), but I couldn't get rid of the room noise without sounding terribad.

Noise gates and suppression can reduce hums, buzz, clicks etc at the cost of quality and the result can sound robotic and choppy. I had a lot of trouble sorting out audio issues (OBS filters aren't great, Reaper filters crash Streamlabs OBS) and settled on a combination of vanilla OBS with Izotope RX Elements and Nectar Elements, which is an effective but pricey solution. I have a TC Helicon GoXLR on the way, but it's a few weeks away from release here. Hopefully it'll do the job as a hardware compressor, EQ and gate so I can eliminate the audio lag in OBS from the VST plugins.

A switch is a USB hub, with the ability to "switch" between hosts. Multiple inputs (e.g m/kb) lead to a single output for PC, and another single output for PS4 or XB1.

To add to the above post - CM does not support a Slim or Pro DualShock 4 via XIM Apex. It must be an original model DS4, or the CM will crash.

That's a CM issue, not a XIM one. XIM is not officially supported by CM. Titan One and Two however offer official XIM support and CM scripts work on both devices.

Nutshell version - XIM can't polish a turd.

XIM Link / Re: G920 steering wheel
« on: 04:19 PM - 02/10/19 »
XIM is a mouse & keyboard adapter. If you want a controller adapter that supports a G920 on XB1, with full force feedback, get a Titan Two. Different tool, different job.

Grifta is dodgy AF. The guy didn't deliver on Kickstarter pledges, he cut and run with the money. He's still selling the single units he ordered for the Kickstarter campaign and those of us who made higher level pledges got nothing.

XIM is nothing more than a controller. It has no input or output for anything but controller signals and can't affect game graphics, audio or networking.

XIM can affect chat on XB1 via a controller, but only because the console doesn't like 1000Hz polling for some games on some individual systems.

Are you using a rapid-fire mod or macro, either via third-party device or on-board the mouse?

XIM does not know what you're shooting at, so it's not XIM doing it.

My bet's still on the mouse malfunctioning. Is it wired or wireless?

12
XIM Apex can be used on Android devices via a Titan Two. However, the device needs to support the correct USB connection type. Nvidia Shield TV is more appropriate than a smartphone or tablet.

13
It's your mouse, not the XIM 4. Check your mouse button on PC. Alternately, it's network lag. Check your game & internet settings.

Neither the XIM nor the mouse knows when you're shooting at enemies as opposed to shooting at thin air, so that'll be confirmation bias.

I think too much can ad a bit of delay but I don't think that it effects your actual sensitivity (360 cm)

Someone else that knows more will probably comment
This is correct. Sensitivity is unaffected, but a healthy dose of smoothing will add a delayed feeling to movement.

Use search, there are plenty of configs posted for Siege.
