[RESOLVED] Ps4 mouse and keyboard delay
« on: 01:33 PM - 08/01/16 »
I am quite new to using the xim4 and I followed the user manual thoroughly when setting it up. My problem is that there is a noticeable delay between my movements on the kb/m and my tv. Before anyone jumps to the conclusion that it is my tv at fault, my controller has no delay whatsoever with the tv. Unless I am missing some knowledge, I do not understand why the kb/m would be laggy, but not my controller. My mouse is at its max dpi and I have tried 1000 and 500 polling rate, but nothing changed. I'll try 250 later. Also, my in game sensitivity is at in game max. My tv is very old though and lacks a gaming mode.  So if someone could explain why the controller works well with the tv, but the xim4 does not that would be appreciated. I have a 32 inch dynex flat screen hd tv with 120hz.

Mouse: redragon mammoth 16400 dpi
Playing on overwatch

Welcome to the community. You'll find, in general, that you'll notice latency a lot more with a mouse than a thumbstick.

Do you notice delay with buttons presses? For example, when you fire via a mouse button vs. using the controller, or jump (where you are using a button rather than a variable trigger), do you see a latency difference via this method?

Thank you for contacting. Yes with comparison to the controller it is a bit delayed, but I am in no need of actively pursuing to fix whatever might be wrong (maybe its just me). I played a few more games and started to realize that whatever delay is existing, is not really noticeable at all most of the time.

XIM4 adds a 8ms delay but this isn't perceivable. Are you certain you feel a difference pressing buttons between your controller and mouse/keyboard? Are you pressing the controller button while it is connected through your XIM4? If so, it's actually going through he same "path" as your mouse and keyboard.

After more playing I realized that my mouse was moving quicker than the sensitivity cap, which made gameplay sluggish. After I stopped doing quick jerking motions everything is smooth and precise. It was completely user error on my part. Thank you for the input.

Ok, thanks for reporting back. Here is more info on that (although, looks like you already understand the mechanics behind it): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3fCx9OLGF2Q
