I just ordered my XIM3 today, I am excited I must say....here is my setup.

1) XIM3
2) Move navigation
3) G700
4) Xbox wired controller

My question are?

1) What settings should I use for my mouse?
2) Is the Xim3 easy to setup and understand (I see a lot of users like tweaking custom settings)?
3) What is the recommended config from users who have my setup?
4) How do I become a beta tester?
5) What tutorials does Xim3 offer?
6) Is there plans to release the capture software so that we can aid in future ST?

With excitement comes many questions, so please be easy on me if any of this has been asked before.

1) set the mouse to 0 acceleration in the setpoint and use it with maximum dpi
everything else is up to your choice :)

2) yes it is IF you read the manual and/or watch the tutorial videos
both can be found in the upper right corner under "Learn ?"
the manual comes with the xim3 though

as for the first weeks you wont use any custom config, the smart translator is your sandpit for the first
its necessary to understand the mechanics of the smart translator first
usually the smart translator is all you need, so if you start tweaking as a beginner you just ruin your mouse translation
copy paste values you have no clue what they do is also not a good idea, so just go with the smart translators, read the forums and after a week or two you have enough knowledge to get into the custom ones

i need to mention that custom ones are in 99% of all cases not better than the original smart translator
only certain games with very good mechanics like cod can benefit from a so called standard translator

3) always max dpi and 0 acceleration, thats the deal
the only thing that is left is the sensitivity, and thats something everyone needs to adjust on his own

4) you can become one by clicking "profile" then "modify profile" and "group management"
there you can find rc beta tester

5) can all be found under "Learn ?"
also read the FAQ in the xim3 section, it also covers a lot of important things

6) capture software?
what exactly do you mean?



also you should make sure you re not playing on a big tv, people go and buy the xim3 and once they have it they complain about its delay but in fact its their huge tv that has tons of input lag which you cannot feel/notice with a controller analog stick

Thank You for your help. The capture software I was speaking of is the software you guys use to create ST (I think it's game capture software).

I'm not sure if I am suppose to ask you a question directly due to my post count is low...so in advance I apologize. Do I set the acceleration and dpi from the mouse level or the Xim3?
1) set the mouse to 0 acceleration in the setpoint and use it with maximum dpi
everything else is up to your choice :)

2) yes it is IF you read the manual and/or watch the tutorial videos
both can be found in the upper right corner under "Learn ?"

Is there a way to post without having to keep doing the verify check?
