Support / Re: SAB Off stick drift issue

Are you using it on PC or console?

A PC game's deadzone is likely to be different, which would cause stick drift. That can be corrected using a Ballistics Curve, or maybe Boost.

XIM APEX is a mouse & keyboard adapter with no mod or macro support.

It's useful for say using a Nav to play PC games, but not so much for console.

It may be possible on a Titan Two using Multi Interface HID as the Output Protocol, but not on a XIM.

Same here - despite being a lefty and not being able to use the side-buttons, I love the G305 size and shape and it's my go to mouse. Wireless makes a world of difference - cords are a PITA, even with a bungee.

I use my G Pro Wireless for Windows apps, but the G305 for XIM gaming.

DualShock 4 seems to be more compatible with XIM Link and PC and doesn't need a workaround, hence the query.

It's the XB1 controller guys who are looking for a solution and this might do the job.

reWASD also works (and is much simpler to implement) but seems to decrease XIM sensitivity.

Using a XIM this way would make zero difference as all output from a XIM appears as controller input. You can use a Nav on PC as a kb via software emulation, but not on console.

Great work havoxxx! Have you tested this with a DualShock 4 and an Xbox Wireless Controller (XB1)?

That's the newer, more expensive version of the G203. The old one is just as good, but without the lightshow and increased pricetag.

You'll need to manually copy all of the ADS settings to the AUX sub-config.

XIM 4 hasn't been abandoned, it's been superseded by XIM APEX. Despite that, the last FW update for XIM 4 was only a couple of months ago.

Game configs are published for XIM 4 as well as XIM APEX, so every game is available on both devices.

It's really simple to do (HIP to ADS), but jumping back the other way needs some thought  ???

The title of this thread should be changed. It should read "I think...". By the way, a theory is a scientifically proven fact. What you have is a hypothesis that requires testing.

Anecdotes, hypotheses and conspiracy theories don't count for much when XIM hasn't been directly detected or targeted since it's invention over a decade ago  ???

Hard evidence is Respawn posting "We've discovered a way to detect XIM". Soft evidence is "I hear click-clacks of team-mates keyboards". You're drawing a very long bow at best. Maybe next time ask if they're using XIMs, then calculate the results of the survey as "hard evidence".

We've gone through this before with PUBG, Fortnite, Blackout, Overwatch etc. XIM usage is significantly lower than people think. Ergo, developers aren't going to dedicate the resources needed to discover and filter XIM players into dedicated lobbies.

For a game dev to sniff and filter XIM players on console would require significant server-side heuristic logging and analysis of the entire playerbase because SAB makes XIM movement input indistinguishable from a controller. That would require millions of dollars to setup, support and staff...you honestly think they're doing that to find a needle in a haystack? That is exactly what a XIM user is compared to the total playerbase.

Devs also aren't going to use game settings to group players they deem to be cheating into the same servers, that's just silly. If they consider their own controller parameters as cheats, then why provide those options? It's not happening.

On PC, devs have deeper access to the operating system and will be sniffing for cheat apps tapping into the game processes, or running in conjunction with the game. That's very simple and cheap to do by comparison, especially when they can purchase off-the-shelf cheat detection services that do this for them.

Posts like this from new users should be taken with a pillar of salt when there is no substantiating evidence. It's the same theorycrafting controller players use when they accuse better players of using a XIM when they simply lack the skill to win the engagement.

The far more logical explanation is skill based matchmaking (I don't know if Apex Legends uses it), which is more likely to place higher skilled opposition into the same lobby. The concentration of XIM players may increase as SBMM level increases. Even then, it's a tenuous link as you're still highly unlikely to run into another XIM user based on the very low percentage of us actually out there (OBsIV gathers this data, it's likely less than 0.1% for the battle royale games).

Unless and until Respawn themselves provides "hard evidence" that XIM is being detected, get on with your life and enjoy the game. Just like every other dev that has stated they're working on m/kb input detection (PUBG, Overwatch, Fortnite etc), they're not spending a cent to find the 1 in 1000 players using a XIM, most of whom are just average gamers.

Bots are back in force  :-\

I game mostly on console and work exclusively on Mac. The only reason I have a PC at all is for streaming, and thatís more for the technical challenge of optimising it than actually doing it. Understanding how technology works and min-maxing it is probably more my hobby than gaming and itís a deep and expensive rabbit hole  :o

PC as a platform is still riddled with inadequacies and inefficiencies - itís nowhere near as progressive as it should be because tech companies are more interested in bleeding us dry one drop at a time than genuine progress. This next-gen of consoles is a wake-up call for PC gaming, even if it is for the short term.

Itís possible to jump between configs using Hotkeys, so theoretically you can already do what you want. Practically, itíll need some tweaking to find out the right way to do it.

Swapping from HIP in CoD4 ST to ADS in BO3 is pretty easy by binding the ST Hotkey in CoD4 to ADS, but there may be a delay during the ST swap.

The hard part is defining a key to return to the CoD4 HIP ST - Sprint gets close, but can be used for hold breath while ADS. It could be done using a toggle thatís not bound to an Action, but then you need to remember to hit it every single time, which is impractical.
