I need help with something!!!!
« on: 05:30 AM - 05/16/12 »
Ok guys, after using the xim for a few years now there is one thing that i cant seem to pull off that i could do easily with a controller and that is making extremely straight horizontal sweeps. How can i do this with a mouse? my lines are a little curvy. When using a controller i could snap from headshot to headshot ez cause thankfully everyone is the same height in FPS (lawl) But when doing this with my mouse i tend to make slightly diagnal or curvy sweeps. any insight would be great.

Move your arm instead of your wrist

Alternatively, stop curving the mouse when you want a straight line ;)

Inb4 angle snapping

Look up beginner art videos of how to draw long straight lines and then practice that and you'll be good to go once you get it down :P

Hint you pivot at elbow instead of wrist

is there a setting on the xim that would aid me in this as well?

No, but you could set angle snapping on your mouse if it supports it

On the XIM3, there is a setting under the "smart advanced" menu called smoothing that is similar to angle snapping.  Try experimenting with this value and see if it helps.

Ive discovered that its difficult to do this because i use high sens with xim, when i lower it i can make danm straight sweeps...but i am a Twitch shooter i need high sens, if i cant pull a 180 in a fraction of a second i am useless in cqc. I tried pivoting my elbow instead of my wrist and this helps alot, I will try that smart advanced option out soon.

Smoothness will help. However Angle Snap is what you want. Watch halfway through this video(when it gets to BF3) You can see how straight my movements are with angle snapping.
