This is what happens when someone gets too anxious to play!  I appeared to get my new Xim3 all hooked up, got in multiplayer game, experimented with mouse sensitivity, feeling pretty good about myself ...thought I would remap to my n52.

Somehow, not only was I not successful, I also managed to wipe out all (or near all) of my Xbox controller button commands (except for B - most of the time!).

1. Can anyone tell me how to get my controller buttons back to default!?
2. Does anyone have any theories what the heck I did wrong!?
3. Last, I must have destroyed my BF3 config file - how do I get a fresh copy to start over with?

I did review the board for help but couldn't find anyone stupid enough to do what I did!  lol!  Thanks guys - looking forward to seeing some of you online.

you wiped them out?
so your controller is broken?!


to get a new bf3 config on xim3:
delete the bf3 config
then open up a different config you do not need and use the xim3 copy function
you now have a "GAME XX - Copy"
open it up, go into edit config, press y on the controller and change its translator from " GAME XX - Translator" to "BF3 - Translator"
then you can again set your sensitivity and button layout



a short note
if you are lost with the xim3 binding menu, watch the introduction videos in the upper corner "Learn ?"
or even better, use the xim manager to bind your buttons, its much easier

Wired controller works fine when plugged into Xbox direct, but when plugged into Xim3 A does not work nor does B.  I'm now using and learning Xim3 Manager so the keyboard mapping for my n52 should be easier.  But I'm still perplexed as to how to get the A & B button functions back when connected to Xim3.

Should have been more clear, all other wired controller functions work (d-pad, joysticks, X & Y, triggers, etc.) EXCEPT A & B when connected thru Xim3.

I really don't know how this could happen. X and Y works? So, you are unable to navigate XIM3's menus (which requires A and B)?
Get the most out of your XIM APEX, read the XIM APEX Support FAQ.

do those buttons work without the xim3?

is that a regular microsoft controller or some third brand controller?
