Release Candidates / Naos regression with 402?
« on: 10:24 AM - 04/03/11 »
It sounds like the Naos regressed with 402.

Can owners of this mouse describe what's happening? Is the mouse detected fine but the input coming from it is messed up?

527
Just a heads up that a new build is coming for testing (hopefully this week). This is going to be the next "Gold" build. Similar to 320, but, with a couple extra things:

1) A new "mouse debug" feature that enables you to see what DPI XIM3 is seeing
2) All the updated STs using the new smart trainer
3) Sensitivity limit increased to 500
4) A minor "axis drift" fix with lower DPI mice
5) Disable of the "quality-of-service" runtime checks (i.e. blue/green screens) that are only enabled in Beta builds

528
I've posted an updated Black Ops Smart Translator in the Downloads section. It was run against the new Smart Trainer system. Improvements were notable for Reach, so, I'm interested in feedback for Black Ops.

Release Candidates / Blue and Green screens in 318
« on: 09:52 PM - 03/19/11 »
Hey everyone, we have runtime quality checks in place in the RC firmware that will report conditions that may affect gaming quality. They are showed as Blue and Green screen halts.

So far I've heard of one person say they got a Blue screen on on 318. We need to figure this out before we can promote this build to Beta.

Has anyone else gotten a Green or Blue screen?

If so, please tell us what you were doing right before it happened. Were you pressing buttons at the time? Did you have a headset plugged in at the time?

Release Candidates / Audio on 318
« on: 02:18 PM - 03/19/11 »
Hey everyone, make sure to provide feedback on audio on 318. It should be improved (I.e. no robot voice).

General Discussion / Homefront tears like crazy
« on: 11:27 AM - 03/19/11 »
The Smart Translator trainer is working on Homefront, but, I'm a little concerned about it because Homefront tears like *crazy*.

Is anyone seeing this? Probably not as noticable to people in general, but, I'm looking at individual frames, and, it's horrible.

Release Candidates / Flash Drop 20110318-BETA-RC
« on: 12:37 AM - 03/19/11 »
Flash Drop 20110318-BETA-RC
DO NOT SHARE THIS DROP OUTSIDE THIS TEST BOARD!

This is a BETA release, USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.


Instructions:
1) On your XIM3, go to Settings and select "Enter 'PC-mode' on next restart" (tutorial at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=td0_LjFTHGg)
2) Unplug your XIM3 from your Xbox and plug into your PC (special PC-mode icon will show on the screen)
**Do not unplug your wired xbox controller first, unplug the xim3 from the console first**
3) Download (link below), un-zip, and then run the XIMFlash executable
4) Follow the wizard steps presented
5) When finished, plug your XIM3 back into your Xbox


Operating Systems Supported: Windows XP SP2/Vista/7 x86/x64

Changes:

New "Primary" and "Secondary" Mouse Settings user interface
The mouse settings experience was redesigned around a more flexible system that replaces "Secondary Sensitivity" with a fully customizable secondary mouse settings page. Among other things, the new system allows for a separate Smart Translator to be used when secondary is engaged. Separate expanded mouse settings are useful in games where gameplay commonly switches between two different look mechanics (such as when aiming-down-site).

New "Smart Advanced" mouse translation option
Smart translator mouse settings was split into "Smart" and "Smart Advanced". "Smart" was simplified with only Sensitivity and Game knobs. "Smart Advanced" includes Acceleration and additional new "mouse conditioning" knobs: YXRatio, Smoothness, and Boost.

New "Boost" knob
New "Boost" knob for Smart Advanced configurations. This knob adds in a user specified constant to all mouse input. The effect is an added "boost" of speed on small movements. Since Boost bypasses the slower-end of the game's look mechanic, it may result in "jittery" movement. Use the "Boost Jitter" knob to the right of the Boost value to "tune out" this jitter.

New Primary to Secondary mouse settings switch "Delay" knob
When dynamically switching between your Primary and Secondary mouse settings, there is now an optional delay (in milliseconds) that can be used. Typically used in games where aim-down-site (ADS) activation isn't immedate (such as when an in-game animation plays during the transition). Only appies when transitioning from Primary to Secondary (reverse direction is immediate).

New Black Ops ADS (Aim-Down-Site) Smart Translator
A separate translator was created for Black Ops that handles the unique look mechanic of Black Op's ADS. Intended to be used together with the existing Black Ops "hip" Smart Translator and switched between the two using your existing ADS button.

Updated Halo Reach Smart Translator
Updated Halo Reach Smart Translator using upgraded Smart Translator data refinement steps.

Updated Black Ops Smart Translator for "acceleration" issue
Updated Modern Warfare 2 Smart Translator for "acceleration" issue
Updated World at War Smart Translator for "acceleration" issue
Updated Call of Duty 4 Smart Translator for "acceleration" issue
Fixed a Smart Translator build issue that was introducing velocity inconsistences that would manifest itself as movement acceleration when turning in-game.

New "Super-Preview" Configuration mode
While adjusting your Config, you can now try out all your new settings (with the exception of your Switchers) without saving them or leaving the configuration page. This enables much faster adjustment of settings to match your playing style.

Fixed Yellow Screen issues
XIM3's onboard USB hub was raising a "yellow screen" error in some scenarios where frequent reattach of peripherals was occuring. Mainly seen by customers using manual USB switches to share their peripherals with their PCs. This scenario is now properly supported.

Razer Naga mouse support

Mionix Noas mouse support

Belkin n52te game board now identified as a KEYBOARD
The n52te will now show as a keyboard on your XIM3. You'll need to update your configurations appropriately.

Sony Move Navigation controller support
The Sony Move Navigation controller is now supported in wired mode. When your Nav is plugged into your XIM3, it’ll show as a joystick.
IMPORTANT: The red sync light in on the Nav must be OFF when plugging in to your XIM3. If is ON, wait until it turns off automatically and then plug in (otherwise, a yellow '?' will show on the screen).

Maximum turn speed limitation problem fixed
An important bug was fixed that was limiting turn speeds. Turning is much faster with this fix on all games. It’s recommended that you review your mouse Sensitivity and Acceleration settings after applying this fix. You many find that Acceleration is no longer needed (i.e. Acceleration set to 0) which is ideal to retain “linear” movement results. For more information about turning, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fCx9OLGF2Q.
 
Improved button support on mice
A bug was fixed that was preventing the use of all buttons on various mice. You may need to update your mouse settings to make all buttons visible to XIM3. For example, for Logitech mice, use SetPoint to configure your mouse buttons as “generic buttons”.
 
Device type identification improvements
Improvements have been made to the device type identification system that was preventing certain mice and keyboards to be detected correctly. Some mice present themselves as both a mouse and keyboard. When plugging in, XIM3 may detect it incorrectly as a result (i.e. a mouse shows up as a keyboard). If you are experiencing problems like this, simply plug in your device into it’s new “preferred port”. For mice, the preferred port is right-most (furthest from the console mini-USB port). And for keyboards, the preferred port is the middle port.

Device over-current detection
If your devices are drawing too much power, XIM3 will shut down the USB ports. Now, if that happens, a special icon will be displayed to inform you of the condition.

Device detection fixes
Fixed some XIM3 embedded hub issues that would cause all connected peripherals to not be found at power up.
 
Scroll wheel delay reduced
Reduced the mouse wheel scroll up/down “button” hold time.
 
Keyboard Up, Down, Left, Right movement behavior change
New keyboard button stick binding behavior makes it so that if both buttons in the same direction are pressed at the same time, movement stops in that direction. For example, if you have your binding as standard “WADS”. Pressing A and D at the same time will stop horizontal movement.

Fixed Red Screen issues
Fixed an issue that caused a "red screen" error to occur when certain configuration settings were used.

Known Issues:
- G9x mouse profile switcher locks XIM3
- Zowie EC1 mouse scroll wheel doesn't work
- RAT7 mouse button binding can cause "red screens"

Release Candidates / Boost feedback
« on: 02:16 AM - 03/15/11 »
Please provide feedback about the new "Boost" knob (and peer "Boost Jitter" knob). The description from the Release Notes:

New "Boost" knob for Smart Advanced configurations. This knob adds in a user specified constant to all mouse input. The effect is an added "boost" of speed on small movements. Since Boost bypasses the slower-end of the game's look mechanic, it may result in "jittery" movement. Use the "Boost Jitter" knob to the right of the Boost value to "tune out" this jitter.

The implementation of Boost can be modified based on additional feedback.

There are a few XIM3 gamers that have expressed a significant want for a highly adjustable mouse ballistics option, so, I wanted to discuss this with the community to understand if such a feature would be valuable and used.

Today, your raw mouse input is "conditioned" using configuration knobs (Sensitivity, Acceleration, etc.) before being passed for translation by Smart Translators. The new ask here is to be able to bypass those knobs and supply essentially a "graph" to XIM3 of what the conditioning should produce. You could envision this feature presented to the user as a set of 8 or so "plot points" that you'd give XIM3 (instead of setting the other knobs).

Here is an example of a curve that one member would like:


Understandably, that this is an extremely advanced and difficult way to set how you want your mouse to behave (hence the reason we have knobs). But, since it was mentioned, I wanted to get a feel of how widely something like this would be used by the community.
