I've found pretty good movement with Destiny XB1 ST (although I haven't tried others).
Currently using G502 (max DPI of 12,000 and 500 polling rate) with XIM 60 Sensitivity, 33 ADS Sensitivity.

This may indeed be better than I am giving it credit for, but I attribute some of these "issues" to my own mental learning of completely different game mechanics and "feel" than Halo 4. Cannot say I like ADS at all, but XIM helps with its toggle feature, albeit, it requires hitting the same hotkey / mouse button again

What are your configs for Halo 5?


UPDATE 1 - 10-29-15
Neither Halo 5 nor Destiny STs are wonderful, but to counter the vertical lag a Ballistic curve is needed as I mention here, and found by other fellow XIM members more familiar with these advanced settings :-)

I don't think many of us will bother trying to perfect our setup yet due to waiting for the Halo 5 ST which should be out any day now.

Just not worth the time investment. 

That being said I am using Destiny (X1) at default XIM settings @ 8100 DPI and I find it completely playable.

How bad is the look mechanic in Halo?  As bad as previous Halo's and Destiny?

You guys are the men.

I'm using h4 st, 24 sens @ 5k dpi.  Feels like the rails are even lower this time around, might go down to 20.

Wow that is quick!

A ST out on release day is unheard off haha :D
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 :) ).

After trying the H4 MCC ST, I tried destiny and I feel its better overall.

AltF4 - I pretty much have all the same setting you do, except my XIM4 sensitivity is significantly lower, only 15.

Its good enough to get me through today.  Looking forward to the official ST.

The better question is are we clicking to zoom, or holding to zoom?  I'm clicking as in past halo games

Heck yes, you are the man!

On a separate note, Ding, it's funny, I tested out the Halo 4 MCC XB1 ST and it works well, and now I prefer that I think, lol!
I set the sensitivity to 16 for both Hip and ADS. I have found that fiddling with a lower sensitivity with the ADS makes me become mouse-dumb and under/over compensate. By leaving it like it was in previous halos, it feels good.

FWIW in Halo 4 MCC I used 12 as a sensitivity.


wyld3, I am using "click" that is, using XIM's toggle feature for the ADS selection.
So it is similar to older halo games with being zoomed in. I am using the mouse scrollwheel up for that. My only gripe is that it doesn't untoggle itself (unless pressed again) because XIM emulates it as still being held. So to untoggle it, I have to consicously thing to "re-zoom" in again to unzoom (and to the XIM I am then toggling it off)

OBsIV, would that be asking a bit much of changes to the XIM software in the future to be able to have a new feature which defines a a specific set of input controls (some specific buttons / mouse events) that would toggle off ADS when the toggling feature is being utilized?
For example, I would define Tab (switch weapons), R (reaload), and Sprint button to have it toggle off.
That would make things perfect, at least with how this game plays compared to other halos.


EDIT: OMG, just clicked Advanced... lol
However, I would love the ability to define another hotkey for ADS if possible.
NVM this guy is a genious - http://xim4.com/community/index.php?topic=39325.msg496898#msg496898

Overall though, old habbits are hard to break, and I'm a bit worried when I have to switch back to Halo 4 having to relearn again.

I've always used the same sens for scope and hip in halo
