I just watched your lgs video. Working on getting that to work tonight.

To clarify, your mouse registers how long you have the button held down to switch its onboard settings, when then correlate to manager. For example I switch to heavy in game by holding down weapon change. Mouse registers this hold and release and so go to its onboard settings. You change weapons ago, the macro sees another button press and switches back?

I see your XiM is set up to toggle on weapon swap...so how do you manage that the XiM is in heavy mode?

If I can get this it's totally possible to create different macros for each weapon type. In a limited capacity.

I'm not 100% sure I follow you here, but I'll try to answer this.

- I don't use toggle for weapon swap, I use it for activating and holding the Sparrow config. I don't have a separate config for heavy weapon.

- When setting up macro's I always assign them to buttons that I don't use for anything else. So by pressing that button it only carries out the script written for that macro and nothing else.

- If you're talking about Rapid fire, for different guns, that's considered cheating and really wouldn't help much for Destiny anyways, from what I remember about the guns.

- Rapid fire is not something we're allowed to discuss on the forum, sry.

- If you look at my button layout on my G502, I use Scroll down as "Y" to change weapons. I use the so called "Sniper" button for the macro that simulates holding down Y for 1.8 secs, which brings up the Heavy weapon. If I want to switch from the heavy weapon, I use scroll down to do so.

Make sense?

Hey, thanks for reply!

Not looking to do macros for rapid fire or anything, just different sensitivity, boost, curves for each weapon class. For example your ads curve is exceptional with side arms. However, sniping wasn't intuitive.

I followed your tutorials, videos, and directions exactly - got it all working! Thanks a lot for that.

The point: I want to build  a swap to have different settings for each weapon class. 1) for your macros, are you plugging a keyboard in momentarily? So the orbit button. Num7-Num-8 etc,. Once in game those don't exist. When and how are you logging keystrokes?

2) the emotes are useless. That gives four extra buttons, plus three on board profiles for g502. Some play room to build curves. I was thinking dpad down on Nav to toggle, let's say fusions. So Jerry rig weapon profiles. Can you give a hint or idea towards a more fluent/elegant solution?

The point: I want to build  a swap to have different settings for each weapon class.

I would create a New Destiny "Full" config for every weapon, paste the whole config to each one and then chg settings to your liking.


1) for your macros, are you plugging a keyboard in momentarily? So the orbit button. Num7-Num-8 etc,. Once in game those don't exist. When and how are you logging keystrokes?

I leave a key pad plugged into port three all the time. Once the Nav is connected wirelessly you can use port three for whatever you want.


2) the emotes are useless. That gives four extra buttons, plus three on board profiles for g502. Some play room to build curves. I was thinking dpad down on Nav to toggle, let's say fusions. So Jerry rig weapon profiles. Can you give a hint or idea towards a more fluent/elegant solution?

If you don't use the emoticons then I'd say the Dpad would be a good choice for activating your different configs. Or you can use a keypad like I do to change global configs, smartphone is always an option to. Both take a little more effort though then using the dpad.

Bind triangle to another mouse or keyboard button. Simple as that really.

^^ Yeah, I almost always double bind the chg weapon button. I have Y or Triangle bound to scroll down under primary buttons, but I also have it bound to another button under secondary buttons. For the G502 I bound it to scroll down and then the Sniper button I believe with Destiny.

I just wanted to give a shout out to RML  8)

I recently switched to the Sony Nav and started using this profile. It has been a game changer for me and I can't thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into making this amazing config.

If you ever end up in Florida, the first round is on me!

Only the first round? Maybe 2 or 3 rounds and in a tittie bar.

Nice one guys! As it so happens, I'm a huge Dolphins fan and I actually plan on going to the renovated stadium later this year. ;)

Not sure the wife will go for the TT bar though lol ... let me ask ...

Nope! sry.

Well, actually, she said only if she tags along but what fun is that?!

(We'll leave her at the hotel, swimming with dolphins or something)  ;)

Follow the Advanced settings link in my signature. Make sure you read through it carefully, watch the video's and follow the links (especially the one for noobies). Then come back to the first post in this thread and carefully read through the entire thing. All the information you need is all within that spectrum, it's up to you if you want to take the time to learn it.  But this thread is pretty much useless to you if you don't. :)

I am still having a tough time making Destiny really feel right.

From a 400 dpi mouse and nasty keyboard, to a g502, NAV and latest manager and firmware. I have a steel series mousepad, I can't justfiy dropping more money on a Razer glass coated mouse pad right now to continue and try to get this to work.

I don't want to quit on it either. Especially in games when it seemed to be clicking. Here's the problems, help is appreciated. Sticking with the same set up, gear, and curves this happens.

ADS, aim in general.

1) inconsistentcy. No two matches. No two ads situations. No two movements ever feel identical. I'm running 8200 dpi, 500 hz, as suggested. I always feel somehow slowed down when raising my reticle past an enemies neck. Fast and smooth, then molasses. In Trials of Osiris this has been match ending. This aggravates me because at 1k plus game time, attempting objectivity in review of my play, I don't feel it's me. I will have a smooth 1.5-2kd win. Glowing. Feel amazing. Then same enemies, same set up, getting spit on - consistent .3-.5 kds.

No two movements are feeling alike.

I encounter the opposite problem, if I'm bringing down a reticle or get past the enemy head, my reticle gains major acceleration in whatever direction I was pushing. Our problem with Destiny is that each gun has a level of aim assist as a base stat, creating all sorts of odd effects. For instance, the sidearm Havoc Pigeon is magic with RML's ADS curve. You fight recoil. Your sight goes where you aim it. Switch it to a sniper Defiance of Yasmin, high AA, you gain ghost acceleration and intereria.

Turn and look speed.

2) movement. Turn and look speed. This is a fixture with Destiny and XiM. I've had 2500 boost, 12000 dpi, with a self made curve that was nigh a straight line 100,100 feel the closest to smooth. Then I'm constantly readjusting the mouspad. Mouse position. Arm position. Looking at the curve. I'm using turn assist like a crutch, and doing so makes things jarring. While a comfortable hunter blinks on you, moving smoothly for a kill.

Okay, this has given me an education by fire in ballistic curves. Some of it can be chalked up to bad play/decisions. But the other 95/100? Not sure.

Not hating on XiM. It's a bad @#$% piece of tech,. Easy to use. Hating on Destiny's obtuse m+kb translation. I was a platinum rumbler before deciding to switch. Knew there would be a transition, learning pains, but this was my answer to scuff and Xbox elite controllers now flooding in. Getting down hearted and frustrated with my gameplay here. Would love help or advice finding that sweet spot.

Maybe its just me but from my experience each weapon handles differently. I switch up weapons many times and some times my aim and movement in general feel different. I can be using one hand canon in one game and the feel is just on point and when I switch to another my player feels sluggish and aiming is a bit off.

Could also be lag. It has gotten really bad since the latest patch. Again, some games my character feels like Usain Bolt and sometimes like Peter Griffin and that not even switching weapons or classes. Destiny is weird , straight up. Its at a point where gaming experience is so bad that I feel like taking the disc out and splitting it in half. This coming from a guy who doesn't even rage.
