XIM APEX Discussions / Re: 180 or 360?
« on: 03:45 PM - 10/07/19 »
I started with 360, now it's 180 (900 mm pad). I got caught many times because of it to be honest but at last my hip fire is not all over the place. ADS was 50% at first, then I realised it was too slow. 75% is the way to go for me for now.
From what I've felt so far (I could be wrong), 30 FPS games have a much more limited turning speed.
There aren't many 30FPS games, so I'm assuming you mean Destiny 2. Yes, it has a sluggish turn speed, but it can be improved significantly while sprinting by using Traction on boots. Alternately, slide to corner and instantly sprint.

If it had to do with apex I’m sure he would have said so. But since that statement he hasn’t responded to me asking about it a few times
"Future product development" does not necessarily mean a replacement for XIM APEX. It could mean a future product. Cryptic, yes, but don't read too much into it.

I'm making my own xim out of crocodile clips and a second hand rampant rabbit. Will you be one of my alpha testers?
I'll bring the rabbit.

Thanks for your reply antithesis, you are such a wonderful guy and we are lucky to have you. X
You are a sarcastic turd frash, but i'll accept the compliment  :-*

G502 is the most widely used mouse on XIM APEX :)

OBsIV has previously stated that at a new XIM is not currently being worked on. XIM APEX will be supported for the next generation, just as XIM4 made the transition from PS3 & 360 and has been supported through the XB1 & PS4 gen.

There is no rabbit ready to spring out of the hat in 2020 to cash in on the next-gen consoles while giving the finger to XIM APEX owners. The only way it'll happen is if it's a forced hardware update due to lack of console support for backwards-compatible devices.

That outcome is highly unlikely given MS has already stated XB1 gear will work on Scarlett and I'd expect PS5 to follow suit or risk losing market share to Xbox.

Long story short - XIM APEX should work next-gen, but we won't know for certain until both consoles hit retail. A replacement for XIM APEX is not being worked on, which should give us confidence in the devices we already own.

Might be a dud unit. Check for sensor rattle.

A DS4 is supported in Fortnite on PC. Note that PC however is not a supported XIM APEX platform, but others have successfully used it for Fortnite on PC.

Logitech macros don't repeat unless connected to Logitech Gaming Software or G Hub. So they won't work for stuff like rapidfire and antirecoil on a XIM.

You can try connecting a controller to a CM, setting it to 360 Output Protocol, then plugging it into XIM4 as the authentication controller.

Alternately, you can try XIM4 into CM, set to 360 Output Protocol and connect another controller to XIM4 for auth. You may need to authenticate the CM with a 360 controller first (the Rock Candy might work), then plug the XIM4 into the CM.

I'm not sure if that'll work, but it's worth a shot.

Note that all power comes from the console, not XIM APEX. If your devices are drawing more power than the console can supply, that can cause disconnects, as you've described.

Most XIM APEX setups are fine with a mouse, keyboard and fully-charged console controller, which is why a power adapter is not included.

However, I don't think that's what OBsIV is trying to determine here - the first tests are usually for a faulty XIM APEX USB hub, a faulty USB cable from controller to XIM APEX, or a faulty controller.

Don't jump too far ahead, work through the process with XIM staff and they'll get you on track :)

I start with a 360 in HIP for the full width of the pad, then tweak sensitivity to get a predictable 180 flick in the central part of the pad (I never use full width while playing). So both :)

ADS tends to be about 75% of HIP, again as a starting value.

Violation of the TOS?  No..

Impeachable?  YES
Corrupt and fake news, many people know that  :o

I have one, but have yet to use it. It's one of the few joysticks (if not only one) that is fully supported on XIM APEX.

The best use case is to plug it in as a 4th input device e.g. in Battlefield to fly planes. It'd be pretty clunky as a replacement for a gamepad.

Welcome to the community.

Are you on PS4? Check that PS4 > Settings > Devices > Controllers > Communication Method is set to USB cable.

Welcome to the community. Yes, it's fine to leave your mouse at 1000Hz and XIM APEX at 500Hz.
