Can I use a Standard Translator?

No standards in Xim4. The thought is you can get better results by taking an existing smart translator and tweak it to suit your preferences, if I'm not mistaken.

the new advanced boost feature pretty much is a standard translator
what it does is to adjust the deadzone of the translator, this gives you imo much better control than a standard translator

eg pick CoD Ghost translator and adjust the deadzone slightly, with the huge advantage that the deadzone shape is already perfect for the game
much better result than what standard translator offers you with circular and square deadzone shape

this pretty much means that you have a standard translators with multiple shapes, as you can pick every game from the XIM ST libabry and change the boost of it

Od1n explained it perfectly. The real reason people wanted Standard back is because of this very reason. Boost was changed from Edge in XIM4 so that it does a direct modification on the Deadzone rather than a modification of the mouse input.

Sry.. I'm new to the Boost feature. So lets say I want to eliminate some of the Aim Assist, I could use Boost to make the deadzone smaller and that should help right?

Boost and jitter were the best features of the 3 and it was scrapped. Is there any chance of this getting scrapped in the future and if so we need an XIM2ish option for those that prefer standard over smart.

Smart translators to me feel like I'm trying to move my mouse under water...

Not to discount one's feelings, but if that's the case it sounds like you're doing something wrong. My friend used to hate his XIM3 after I convinced him to buy one back in the day because he couldn't set it up right. After I went over and set it up for him he was amazed at the feel.

What games do you feel that way about? Are they games that have a natural slow look mechanic, unlike something like COD?

I'm not being a dick but I know how to set it up. CoD was all I played when I had the 360 (FPS wise). And it only felt good with the boost jitter feature that was added then dropped in a later firmware. So I went back to a standard.

What we are saying is the Boost is back on XIM4.

I know...my next question was will it be dropped later like it was on the X3 or is it here to stay?

Roger that. Was just inquiring. I can understand not falling into the "norm". I personally don't like a strict 1:1 mapping and like differing levels of acceleration throughout my aim.

Isn't this exactly like using a ADS ST on HIP?
