I have a basic Microsoft Mouse, is there any point for me to buy a Xim4 or will I need to upgrade my mouse first?

Thinking of using it for Overwatch, how good does it get? Seems to be a quite problematic to get good settings?

You'll have better success with a gaming mouse with high dpi and a flawless sensor, a lot of us use the logitech g502. There are cheaper alternatives though, however I am not to up to date with them all.  How well the xim4 works depends on the game; stuff like the games max turn speed and aim assist/deadzones.  Some games like COD and battlefield run really well, while other games with slow turn speeds or bad deadzones may need some help from advanced settings.
Mouse Logitech G502
500polling, 12,000 DPI

XIM4 settings.
HIP - 15.

these settings are gold for me.
If anyone has a better settings than this pls let me know, someone else might have platinum or diamond lol
    HOw do you change these settings? is it in the config or is this a mouse setting in the pc..if so how do i get there..please be detailed

The polling rate and DPI will be changed by plugging your mouse into your PC and adjusting the values within your mouses on board memory profiles.  The HIP sensitivity would be set by adjusting it through the xim 4 software using a bluetooth device or pc connection to the xim4 itself.

Having tried humanfemales and henry's curve, I've been just using no curve at all for a few games and been doing very well. I've been mainly playing Tracer, that means I need the movement to be unrestricted, and I need the time based acceleration built in or I can't turn fast enough.

Here's some gameplay - I've come gold in damage in 90% of the games I've played and basically carried in terms of eliminations.

Mouse: Zowie ZA11 @ 1600dpi
FW: latest non steadyaimboost drop
No curve
45 Sensitivity
1500 boost
30 aim assist

I've been using Henry's curve, but have to use hip send at 7.5-10, dpi 12,000 and tick at 500.  I'm not using beta, but the most recent official firmware. Boost from 50-75. I have to change the sens and boost in game, as discussed below.

I've noticed a problem with aim assist. When I have it between 70-80, the sensitivity feels like it change in game in a way that is undesirable. For example, with enemies in front of me, the movement speeds up. When I'm trying to spin around after dashing throw an enemy, the sensitive feels like it drops so far that it is cut in half, if not more.

I've turned off aim assist. That seems to provide more consistent movement with Henry's curve.

But, what I also found is that the mouse movement changes depending on the game. Some games it's faster. Others it's slower. So I'm constantly adjusting the sens and boost. I have no idea what is causing this change. It may my a mouse issue (using a g502). I'm going to reduce the profiles to only one to see if that helps.

Can someone help me with my settings? I'm new to using the XIM4, and new to using keyboard and mouse controls in general. It seems like I have a vastly different setup from everyone else.

Mouse & Keyboard: Cooler Master Devastator II
DPI: 2000
HIP Sensitivity: 175
ADS: 200
Boost: 1600
In-Game Sensitivity: 100
In-Game Aim-Assist: 0
Everything else is set to default.

I've noticed my sensitivity seems to be way higher than everyone else's. But I'm guessing that's a result of my mouse having a lower DPI. I've tried playing at around 100 initially, but it seemed way too slow. I had it as high as 275 at one point because it seemed like the game still wasn't fully responding to my mouse movements. (Although, this was before I knew about the boost setting.)

I still feel like something is off with my settings though, especially whenever I try out a sniper like Ana or Widowmaker. I feel like I can't hit anything unless it's completely still. I end up playing Lucio most of the time and simply not caring about my aim; which in retrospect, makes using the XIM4 feel kind of pointless.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I know I need more practice for sure, but aiming feels wrong in this game with the XIM4. Also I should mention my crosshairs seem to jitter around sometimes, which I presume is a bad thing.

Console games have a turn speed limit. You are definitely hitting the turn speed limit at such a high sensitivity which is going to give you the impression that you are aiming slow.

Using a 12,000 dpi mouse is not going to solve that problem either. In fact, 12,000 DPI will probably hit the turn speed limit even faster.

You need to control your movements because once the XIM4 starts flashing red lights, any extra movement you are doing is useless.

Hey!

I've bought a xim4 2 weeks ago and I'm about to main tracer too.
My settings are currently :

12.000 Dpi
sensivity 23
1000hertz
I'm using a curve for a quicker turn
no boost

do u think these settings are good or improvable?
and do u really feel a difference between 0 and 30 ? ( aim assist )

I've made a new breakthrough in terms of curves for Overwatch.

Using the standard STV2 Latest firmware(not the beta drop which changes the curve ratio), the 1:1 movement stops at 44.9. If you map all movement linearly to 44.9%, the have 4 plots after that ramp to 100% you get the both of both worlds in terms of movement and accuracy.

>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
X4MB:AAAAGgA0AC4AMAAwAC4AMgAwADEANgAwADQAMAA1AAYMExkgJi0zOUBGTVNZyMjIyMjI:X4MB
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<

Here is an example of the curve. I'm still tuning exactly where you should have the jump to 100, it would definitely be personal preference, depends on your sensitivity too. I'm currently trying 27 sens, 3200DPI with the curve above and reking as every character using 15 aim assist in game. Give it a try and let me know how it feels for you. I'm using no boost as well.

I've tried so many settings, curves etc from this thread many hours and i must say its hard to find out which one is the best...they re some like the same..have still Problems to Hit flying pharahs..

Everyone want the best overwatch setting/curve but meanwhile i think there is no best setting for this game. Blizzard change the turnspeed on porpuse. Sorry for my bad english.

Pharah is easy to hit my friend, the thing that truly judges a curve is how well you can kill genjis haha

Maybe u should try to predict where the pharah will be in the next second and to aim a little bit further than where the target actually is at the moment. I don't know but I'm pretty confident this could help u :)

I'm unfortunately not so comfortable with this curve :/ could u explain how the adjustment of the line either making it higher or lower affects the gameplay? I just don't understand  what's the difference between making the line lower or higher

This is the best curve I've tried as far as feeling like pc. It could definitely be improved but it's in the right direction.
