g500 movement jittery when 1000 poll rate.
« on: 09:39 AM - 08/02/14 »
So I got a chance to hook up the XIM4 last night and set it up with a COD:Ghosts profile. I noticed that all the aim movements were real jittery with the default sensitivity or higher. When switching to the ADS translator for hip fire aiming it wasn't as bad but I had to crank it down so much it was too slow.

I hooked up the G500 to the computer and went to see what it was set at. 5700dpi and 1000poll rate. Which what it was set at when I used it with my XIM3, and it worked fine with those settings. No jittery movement.

I set the poll rate down to 500 and retried it. Most of the jitter is gone at the sensitivity I like. There's still bouts of jittery movement every once in a while though. Am I missing a setting I should have on my mouse or the XIM4 that would get rid of the jitter when at a 1000 poll rate?

It really depends on the hardware sensor, your surface, and your gaming style. Polling rate affects this. It's good that you tried 500Hz. Some environments (like you found) work better with it.

That was exactly what I thought as I played Battlefield 4 with G700  (5700dpi) and XIM4: It jitters more on slow movements. than the XIM3 (It feels smoother on faster movements). I'll try to lower the Hz to see if that fixes it.

I must try! My sensitivity sits at about 165, I didn't know if that's the reason. Xim3 and G500 felt pretty great.

I tried turning down pollr ate to 500 on my g500s, and to be honest didn't find a huge difference.

I think you'll feel a difference between 500 and 1000 if have Sensitivity turned up very high.
