Got my Nexus today and I'm about to start the learning curve ... I'm a REALLY old guy lol  ;)

So there are a lot of settings to play about with. If I screw up and make a mess, will everything revert to default if I start again with a new ST ?

I have not started with it yet ... but after opening the box and holding the controller I have to say that I think the back buttons placement is just perfect for me. I've used a few controllers over the years with back paddles and buttons, including the elite controller, and I never really got comfy with hitting them.
With the Nexus I can see that I'm going to hit the back button I want accurately ... good job on the placement of these .. well done.

Glad you managed to get it sorted  :)
If you felt a need to add a 3rd key assignment for the same controller button you could swipe right after the ADS page in manager and then use an aux config page to set more things up.
You would assign a keyboard key to activate and open that aux config ... select "hold" (default setting) to activate it

Then you could set it up so that the only active key in that config was say "X" on the controller and assign it to the keyboard key that you want to use as an extra bind.
Make the key that activates the aux config the same one as the one you assigned for "X" on the controller ..  so if you choose say "H" on the keyboard, when you press that it will open the aux config and also activate your controllers X button while you are holding it, and return to your normal setup when you release it.

Dont have manager open at the moment but off the top of my head I think that you will have to tick "inherit" ? to open up the button assignments ... this will be the set up you have from your hip page and you can then disable and reassign button presses.

That suitcase will have a big dent in it where it connected to my size 14 boot lol.

I think that it will be delivered tomorrow or the next day ... there may have been some kind of walk out at the airport on the day it arrived last week ... think that there was some kind of protest last Thursday. Said on my tracking info that there was a "local delay beyond our control" when it arrived at the uk airport.

Anyway it has left the customs and next step will be England to Scotland and my house.

Not too bothered ...  as long as it hasn't been bashed about.

XIM NEXUS Discussions / My Nexus has a bug ...

... a travel bug lol, it has decided to go globetrotting. Came from Memphis to the UK, then decided that it liked Memphis more and returned back there. Then it thought that it would be nice to pay a visit to France from Memphis, then suddenly remembered where it should be going and came back to the UK where it has stayed and made its way to a Fedex hub after going through customs lol dear oh dear :)

In your game config in manager click the dotted line below your key assignments ... this will take you to the secondary settings page where you can assign a controller button to another key on your keyboard or mouse.

I think this is what you mean ? ... I always have "X" assigned to mouse forward for reload, but I have also assigned it to a key on my Azeron keypad.

In the forums they have said that they are working on a mouse, but it's all a bit hush hush ... part of the name of it is Cheddar :)

A collector, i see ;)

;D Still have mine sitting in a drawer in pristine condition ... it is my most prized gaming purchase bar none, I loved that thing and the way it changed my gaming  :)
Managed to get a Nexus today after sweating a bit when I added it to cart ... it took ages to get to checkout.

So now a Nexus to add to my Xim3, 2 xim4's, and 2 Xim apex.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts on Crysis 2 remastered is ok but is not good on Crysis 3 remastered ... I'm playing it with Mafia 3 and it feels good enough for me ... I had to turn the sensitivity down quite a bit.

I only tried the game ST's that were already set up in my xim manager, so there might be better options available, but it was ok for me.

I take my hat off to him for coming up with this, and making it free to download. For anyone with the use of just one arm this will make gaming possible.

Just started Crysis 2 remastered and tried the Crysis 1 remaster ST .... horrible, so I tried a couple of others and Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts feels ok.

My point is the benefits you gain from a dedicated DAC/AMP and high-end cans, or expensive gaming headset and MixAmp, are negligible for next-gen console gaming. Two years ago I would have agreed with you, but itís not worth the effort on PS5 and XSX for very little difference for positional audio cues, which are all processed digitally by the console soundchip.

I looked at the Ifi Zen Can or Mayflower AMP and DT990s fairly recently. As good as they are for the price, thatís $500+ AUD I donít need to spend. If I was an audio snob or comp gamer, I might care enough to bother, but a soundscape tweaked for positional cues sounds bloody awful. You also have to route a splitter cable and mic through the controller for game chat, which is a whole other level of frustration.

I wouldn't buy cans that need more than 30 Ohms to drive because you're locked into a dedicated AMP. They won't work with a controller, MixAmp (or similar gaming audio device), nor with a mobile device. I recommend the X2s because they're excellent bang for buck and they're versatile. I wanted all-rounder headphones that sound great for gaming, movies, TV & music rather than a dedicated pair just for soundwhoring, which ruled out the ATs for me.

Controller audio from PS5 and XSX is very good and close enough to a $1000 dedicated gaming audio setup to render the purchase obsolete. I have both and would be happy to simply use controller audio these days. Itís much more convenient, sounds surprisingly good, doesnít disable VRR, works with XIMís Push To Talk and allows for console-based audio processing to work as designed.

Just bang a 3.5mm mic and decent, affordable, easy to drive cans onto a controller and be done with it, hence the simplicity of the X2 (or equivalent) & BoomPro recommendation. No mucking around with audio extraction and cable spaghetti, itís plug and play, works with everything and is near enough to a soundwhoring setup to be good enough. A dedicated audio setup will always sound better, but doesnít make a significant enough difference for next-gen console gaming to justify the effort or expense.

Try Dolby Atmos and 3D Audio on Xbox and PS5 - theyíre very good surround sound solutions for the price ($10 and free), and you can always ignore them in favour of plain stereo if you want. A MixAmp M80 isnít needed for 30 Ohm cans, will sound whisper quiet for headphones that need more grunt and restricts your setup to stereo only, but it does allow for EQ tweaking. Thatís the one addition Iíve considered for a quick and easy controller audio solution, but thereís a long 3.5mm cable on the M80 and Iím unclear on its purpose (I'm assuming it's for an Astro headset), so I havenít pulled the trigger.

As for the X7, it's still a great bit of kit 7 years after launch, but I don't use it for Dolby Digital or SBX processing these days. SBX causes a frequency spike at 80Hz which messes with my mic in OBS and GoXLR won't take a DD signal from my consoles, so my setup is limited to stereo. I can get around that with controller audio and console digital processing, or I can power down the SPDIF channel on the GoXLR and enable DD on the console.

What the X7 does better than anything else is consolidate audio input from my PC, Mac, GoXLR, TOSlink matrix and phone or tablet into one central, compact device that outputs to my X2 cans and Logitech Z5500 5.1 speakers. I can't do that with a Zen, Mayflower or Schiit stack, they don't have anywhere near the number of inputs required for my audio setup. When I want to use game chat, I just unplug the BoomPro from the X7 and plug it into the console controller...easy peasy. Significantly less hassle than cable splitters on Xbox or a BT-W2 adapter on PlayStation.

Just tried controller audio for the 1st time on Xbox series x and I have to say that it was much better than I thought it would be  :)
I have a bunch of nice headphones, and have both the X7 and the Mayflower Arc mkii, but on games where I use a mic plugging my PC38x's into the controller port makes it simple, and the sound is pretty good using Dolby atmos or DTS headphone x ... thanks for the heads up anti  :)

how about some kinda contest? that would fun :)

thanks for your generosity though

I have two, I'm sending cloud the one tomorrow. When I get to my apartment in Nashville I may do something like that for the second one if thats kool with the mods! I want to play on a controller anyway wanna get ready for the nexus!

Wow ... you are actually going to send it to someone with 1 post who, joined the forum the same day you post that you want to give it away  ::)

I have the Lucidsound LS35x and the Arctis 9x.

Bought the ls35x first and thought the sound was good for a wireless headset ... BUT ...  the plastic covers on the sliding adjustment cracked and split while it was still under warranty. (don't know if this is a problem with the newer ls50x)

I later found out that this happened to other buyers as well.

Bought the Arctis 9x and the big thing about them that hit me first was the comfort. Sound is maybe not as good as the Lucidsound, bit it's good enough for me. (rarely play with them tho as I use a mayflower arc mk2 and headphones)

Oh I almost forgot ... the Arctis 9x sometimes switched themselves off and had to be switched on again.

Thanks for your thoughts, Alan. Iím not into streaming, just thought this might be a decent solution for playing on my PC and Series X, but its standout feature seems to be SXFI and my headset isnít supported.
Really struggling to find a device that gives great positional audio and that works with 4k 120Hz consoles and PCs.

SXFI is not compatible with xbox ceebs  :(
