XIM>CM in translation

but CM is ahead of XIM on functionality IMO.

Its very "open source" allowing people to do things that are impossible to do, even with XIM commander.

There is also a community that produces useful scripts - not just macros - scripts that increase functionality.

XIM Commander adds control to your mouse/keyboard inputs.
CM adds control of the device itself, custom UIs, etc.

They are different products with different purposes. XIM's primary purpose is the best console mouse and keyboard experience. CM/Titan primary purpose is a controller cross-console scripting input adapter. This is why we invest so heavily in translation tech.
Which is smart.

Do what you do well, and do it the best.

That's why Smart V2 is such a good idea. It makes what XIM does best, and makes it even better.

I get it.

That being said, I think there is a level of functionality that PC gamers expect while using mouse/keyboard on console. XIM is close, but not all the way there.

What sort of functionality do PC gamers expect and generally use that XIM doesn't provide?

Toggle ADS.

You added it into the XIM UI for a reason.

It just doesnt work :/

Just me being greedy - I think you on the right path with Smart V2.

I have x2 XIM4's, i should be selected to test "Smart Translator version 2" I would compare both and able to give feedback. Even if i thought version 2's were more like placebo over been technically different. Really i don't know why you choose to have a closed inside test. I'm waiting for version 2's

ST v2 won't be a saving grace. It is a refinement of an already excellent gamepad to mouse translation mechanic.

What 'crossroads' are you at that you think ST v2 will fix? Is this the 4ms thing again?

You smell it too.

It hasn't been released to the Alpha testers yet.
I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).

I honestly think xim itself its a great device 100% tumes better than any other product or translator out there if there was one thing i would ask for is more control of aim or more advanced knobs to tweak your aim or to come uo with sonething creative. Only thing that sucks its the consoles limitations

The curve pretty much allows you to control the aim in any way that is possible. There used to be more knobs but the curve replaced these.

it's probably the feeling of response from the delayed movement of mouse to what you see on screen.  i'll have my xim4 soon enough to give my opinion, but i believe that's what people are feeling when they say floaty.  just an assumption.

The other question I see is why am I doing this. I'm doing it because XIM4 far ahead of anyone else on translation tech. You all know this -- this is why you are here. Aiming fidelity is more important than any other feature of any device like this of its kind. This is why I invest so significantly in it. I felt it was the right time to make the gap between me and my competitors even wider.



I've some really interesting stuff on this post, but this shows commitment to the product and a will to not be overcomed by the competition. Tip of the hat to you sir.
