General Discussion / What mouse pad do you use?
« on: 12:34 PM - 07/31/12 »
Maybe this was discussed in the past not sure but I haven't seen any post about mouse pads since I've been on this board. To me the mouse pad is an essential piece of the puzzle for smooth gameplay and micro movements. However, I'm not a mouse pad expert and I think it would be cool if people would share which one they're using and why. Currently I use 2 I have the "RocketFish" which I like because I use it for gaming and the computer (it has a speed side and a precision side). http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005RF4QK8/ref=pd_lpo_k2_dp_sr_1?pf_rd_p=486539851&pf_rd_s=lpo-top-stripe-1&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B001719CMI&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=0RY0HVFD5RJ0527BGSG1

Then I have this little baby which works great for me speed and micro moving wise! http://store.razerzone.com/store/razerusa/en_US/pd/productID.169419500/parentCategoryID.35208900/categoryId.40946300

The thing I like most about both of these is they're very affordable and they work great with optical and laser mice!

General Discussion / EA or Activision?
« on: 03:00 PM - 07/29/12 »
Just out of curiousity, now that EA is actually pushing the COD franchise a little with BF3 which franchise are you leaning toward? I think it will be interesting to hear some thoughts now and then again after MOH Warfighter and BO 2 come out in a few months. I know I'm going to be on the loosing end of the Battle here but I'm pulling for EA. I love what BF3 accomplished and I think that if they get it right this go around with the Medal of Honor game Activision could end up loseing this war within a couple yrs. I think a lot of people would agree with me if I said BF3's gameplay (the look,feel and sound) are superior to COD. I think what really lacks in BF3 for the COD fans is the kill streak rewards. But if MOH Warfighter pulls this off with their combo of basically using "the best of both games" Warfighter could be an amazing game! Of course that's a pretty big if right now. Either way the really cool part is whomever comes out on top we (the consumer) reap the rewards. I love how EA's actually pushing Activision to up the anti though, they've been just cruising along for far too long (in my opinion).

XIM EDGE Discussions / New Firmware!
« on: 08:18 AM - 07/29/12 »
Just an FYI, OBsIV released new Firmware a couple days ago. I noticed it has only had about 400 hits so wanted to especially make sure you PS3 users were aware as a lot of it pertains to you!

XIM EDGE Discussions / XIME Vs. Aimon XB Elite!
« on: 04:38 AM - 07/26/12 »
A few weeks ago I said I may do a comparison for these two products since I own both. In my opinion these are the two leading products for playing games on consoles with a mouse. Honestly, I wasn't going to do this because I hate to bash on Aimon. But, I remembered that someone had commented about how it would be helpful to other gamers like myself that may be trying to decide which is best for them. My hope is that maybe this will save someone a little heartache,a few dollars and A LOT of time from having to research before they buy. I will offer my opinions later but for now here are some facts about both!

 - The Aimon XB Elite ships with a mouse,nun chuck,Dongle and a data transfer cable making it all inclusive. The XIME ships with a XIME console adapter and a data transfer cable, you must buy your own peripherals.
 - The XIME supports practically every popular game on the market, the Aimon supports MW3,BF3,Gears3 and Ghost Recon. For everything else they have a generic configuration which happens to be exactly like MW3's.
 - The XIME can store up to 16 game configurations at a time. The Aimon only stores 1 at a time so you have to hook up to the computer and download your new config. every time you change games.
 - They both allow you to adjust hip and ads (aim down scope) sensitivities in game but neither allow you to see by exactly how much. You have to use a computer to see the true values.
 - The Aimon allows you to adjust x and y sensitivities individually (on the computer not in game) the XIME does not.
 - The XIME supports keyboard use, the Aimon does not.
 - The XIME is also an adapter that allows you to use controllers on different platforms i.e and XBOX 360 controller with the PS3. The Aimon does not, you can only use the Nun chuck and mouse provided.
 - The XIME allows you to utilize the console gamepad (controller) while hooked up. The Aimon does not! Note: This is critical for a lot of users in games like BF3 when you want to drive a tank/fly etc. and that is a fact!
 - The XIME allows you to remap buttons from one gamepad to another, the Aimon does not.
 - The Aimon sales for between $50 - $100, the XIME sales for $89.99. However, you must buy your Aimon through a third party distributor. They do not sell their own product, the XIME is sold by third parties and also by XIM!
 - The XIME allows you to further optimize your aiming style through ballistics. The Aimon does not have a similar feature.

Ok, so those are just some of the facts off the top of my head. I'm sure I could go on but by now hopefully you have a better understanding of why I chose XIME! But let me offer now my opinion on a few things that really makes the XIME superior.
1.) Being able to store multiple configurations on the adapter at a time. This is HUGE compared to the Aimon with it's 1 config.
2.) Consistency, with the Aimon there are times when it feels great and then all of a sudden not so great. This can be frustrating cause just when you think you have your settings dialed in you suddenly have an "ah crap" moment which causes you to readjust. The XIME is the same everytime, very consistant!
3.) Button mapping is simple and fun with the XIME and you can do it "In game" with the Aimon you can only button map on the computer.
4.) I originally bought the Aimon because I didn't realize you could use the Sony nav stick with the XIME. I'm not a computer gamer and I didn't want to use a keyboard! Don't make that same mistake! Not only can you use the Nav. but there are other joystick/pads options too.
5.) This truly is a case of "You get what you pay for". If you absolutely cannot afford an XIME then the Aimon is a decent alternative. However, I would suggest that you save your money until you can afford it (be patient) it's truly worth it!
6.) The XIM forum is "Priceless"! There are always moderators,members and even the inventor loafing around waiting to help.

I hope this helps any trollers out there.

You're welcome for the endorsement OBsIV, you deserve it! By the way thank you for my XIME, I hug it every night before I go to bed! lol... JK (kinda). Now if you would just allow me to adjust the x,y sensitivities individually I would be very grateful. I don't know why, maybe my hands retarded or something but it does make a big difference for me! Right now I compensate for this with my G700 dpi setting the y value at 5700 and the x at 4500.

Thanks!

XIM EDGE Discussions / XIME glitch? You tell me!
« on: 06:12 PM - 07/23/12 »
OBsIV and company, here's an interesting thing I found today with the XIME. I didn't really care for your Medal of Honor multiplayer config. (yea I know who plays MOH anymore? Me!) So I tried using the MW3 config. with it. Using your standard config. for MW3, MOH was pretty terrible. But here's where it gets interesting. I didn't change ANYTHING with the config. but I went into the game settings to change my controller from button default setting to button alternate setting, Yes that is all I did! I exited back to the game now with alternate controller settings and everything fells different! Hip and ADS sensitivities are suddenly way slower. Even the deadzones suddenly felt very good where as before they were pretty bad. I then adjusted my hip sensitivity up but left the ADS alone and this feels really smooth playing MOH now. If I go back into game settings and change back to Default button layout the game becomes instant garbage again, WTH? I have no idea why this happens, do you? IDK if this works with any other games but I thought you guys might want to know this. If anyone else out there still has MOH please try it and see what happens. BY the way if it is a glitch please don't fix it! I love this config for MOH!

XIM EDGE Discussions / Question about Razor Naga and XIME?
« on: 09:43 AM - 07/21/12 »
Razor Naga is on the compatible list but which one? Is there just an original cause they all pretty much look the same to me. I'm trying to find an alternative to the G700 (atleast 4 buttons on the side) and preferably wireless although I know the Naga is wired I don't see much else out there!

Should OBsIV do the almost unthinkable? Should he change his brand name now that it's clear the new direction is to incorporate multiple platforms? I mean let's face it, it's not just the "Xbox input machine" anymore! I know OBsIV has had to of thought about this. So here's everyone's chance to apply your input.

1st of all, should he really consider changing his brand?

2nd, if so, what should it be called?

Food for thought!  ???

Hardware Compatibility / Love my XIME hate my mouse!
« on: 12:07 PM - 07/19/12 »
Well finally got some time to play with the XIM last night. For those of you waiting to hear my comments about XIM vs. Aimon Elite you'll have to wait a bit longer sry. Anyways, I bought the G700 because it's so highly toted on here and loved it at first until I started playing games with it. It looks and feels great the 5700 dpi is awesome but the button configuration is just horid! The buttons on the side of the mouse are too close together, too high up and very odly shaped. I wouldn't suggest this mouse for gaming with a Nav controller maybe a keyboard but not a Nunchuck (my opinion). This mouse is going to the computer and I'm in search of a better one for the XIME. Something with side buttons that are spaced out a little and actually shaped like buttons. One thing I will say about Aimon vs. XIME, so far I haven't found a way to make the Aimon work with the XIME. Every time I plug the Aimon Dongle into the XIME it crashes. I tried the center and right side and with the Aimon configured for PC, doesn't work. Kind of sucks because if there's 1 thing the Aimon has over the EDGE it's thier mouse (with very conveinent button layout) and thier Nunchuck. Off to find another $80.00 mouse ugh..........

« on: 04:05 AM - 07/16/12 »

XIM EDGE Discussions / Logitech G700 VS. Razor Naga 2012
« on: 09:09 AM - 07/15/12 »
As much as I would like to buy the G600 it appears to not be compatible! So I've narrowed it down to the G700 and the Razor Naga MMO 2012. Any thoughts from users out there, my EDGE will be here in a couple days and I need a MOUSE!

XIM EDGE Discussions / I'm Sold!
« on: 07:01 AM - 07/15/12 »
Awhile back I posted a thread and I admitted to being an Aimon XB Elite guy. So I stated, "OK, convert me"! Well congrats and thank you to people like mist, Od1n, Roads and AK-XS for helping me decide to take the plunge. Although I really have no serious complaints about the Aimon I went ahead and ordered my XIME today. I look forward to learning this new toy and learning and sharing with all of you going forward. This is a great forum and part of the reason I decided to buy OBsIV's latest product. So thanks to all of you I mentioned above and to everyone else on here that I didn't mention. I've read on here many, MANY times how much everyone appreciates the efforts put forth by the XIM team which is very deserving by the way. Well atleast based off everything I've read in these forums, I'll have to reserve my own thoughts until the EDGE arrives. But seriously XIM owes all of you a great deal of gratitude for all your dedication and support of thier product through these forums. We're all OBsIV's little man children now, congrats Bro! I'll be posting my thoughts on the EDGE in a few days once I get my hands on it. Again, Thanks everyone!
