Getting back into my ximming :)
« on: 09:37 AM - 01/06/13 »
Hi Guys,

Just a quick one as i'm going to get back into my console gaming and I'm too lazy to try and find the answer after being away for so long and so much seems to have changed.

Originally I used my XIM3 on my 360 naturally, but now I want to have a go on the PS3 due to a friend only having access to PS3.  I had already bought the GT Max as I guessed I would want it in the future.

The bit I don't understand is that the XIM3 on the home page just says xbox but the edge says both.

Does the xim3 have specific PS3 ST's available to it?

Thanks

yes it has but the XIM3 doesn't. and the GTMax is laggy... get an Edge if you want to game on PS3 but don't sell your XIM3 because there are somethings the Edge doesn't have the 3 does..
soon..

ok thanks ak,  I'm guessing in the interim the XIM3 will work but its at the mercy of the GTMax for the moment.

mercy of GTMax and ST's made for xbox.. i noticed a lot of difference on BF3 changing from the XIM3+GTMax to XIMEdge.. but it was playable before still...

oh and if you like non-1:1 movement you'll love the ballistics on the Edge..

XIM4 is in the making soon xD probably out after next gen ^^
soon..

ah ok so there is specific PS3 ST's but only on Edge.

Any reason Obs didn't release the PS3 ST's onto the XIM3?

There are threads about this (PS3 STs on XIM3) and the answer is simple: we cannot guarantee quality of results when a 3rd party adapter (i.e. GTMax) is in use. Even if we say "use at your own risk" that will be ignored, people would have bought XIM3s for PS3 anyways, and we would have been worse off over all. There are members that on here that violently don't agree with me, but, the decision still stands.
Get the most out of your XIM APEX, read the XIM APEX Support FAQ.

i love you to and i understand despite my disagreeing stand.

just remember when you get us the next XIM to make a device or features for power users. idk, use a pw protected interface..

because /advance has basicaly only 2 features when it could have at least 2 more..

hint: ads checkbox
switcher chains
configs that don't carry ST's (so we can have proper memory use when 3 configs exist for BF3)
soon..

Yeah not too bad at all really but decided its time to get back to my gaming :)
I can see I seem to have missed a lot of stuff that's been going on recently.

If you have a decent monitor,you don't have to worry about lag,it won't be noticable otherwise if you play on tv,tv's+gtmax's response time may make a noticable lag.However as xim 3 doesn't have st for ps3 it may not be as accurate as on xbox.
