I haven't been watching this thread, but, I'm curious why anyone is using Linear given that the Overrwatch translator wasn't designed to work with it?
That may be true but it works and works better than Mist's ST (no offense mist)
The problem it's different for xbox and PS4. On xbox it seems to start at +12 and PS4 +8

OBsIV, Linear Ramp actually works quite well after working around the deadzone problem using a curve.

Also, I just realized that a curve is not even needed if you use a large amount of boost instead.

Using no curve and about 4900 boost, I get the same effect of using a curve (I think the boost with no curve might actually feel better).

P.S. apparently Blizzard has responded to the Linear Ramp problem, although they seem to "be having trouble replicating the issue" which is pretty funny  ::)

Anyways, hopefully they figure things out and the problem gets resolved soon.

A fixed Linear Ramp might get Mist to have another look at Linear and create an official ST for it.

That would probably feel a million times better than the workaround we are currently using for Linear Ramp.

After trying it the flicks indeed feels better but horizontals are a mess and I can't get it to work even with 1.4-1,5 X-Y.

I ll still try to tune it but For now I ll stay with expo as it feels overall better. I'm also considering turning off aim assist completely. Doing 0 AAW feels really good for hitscans as it will only slow down once on target which makes flicks very reliable, but once they are grouped up its still messing the aim.

Linear felt really great without aim assist, but as I said horizontals are a mess so I'm not sure what's best right now.

Humanfemale came up with a method of using the CCC ST with advanced mouse features -- that's pretty hardcore. :)

I don't think mists choice of keeping Exponential over Linear is because of a game issue with Linear. He chose it because it had properties that made better suited for XIM than Linear (I think he said Exponential has a wider input range than Linear).

No one should get too concerned about the name of these things. Even though XIM is using the "exponential" one doesn't mean you don't get a linear experience. The translator takes all game aiming systems and coverts them to linear.

Good to know, I'm doing pretty well with my config and the official ST + exponential ramp right now, much better than ever but I'm curious to see why there is a such excitation about this, so if we don't need curve but boost it'll be easier to set up. I'll give it a try for hours to see what happens.

I was running SA05 NPD and it didn't quite work right. Just went back to SA03 and works like a champ.

Yes, I still ended up staying on 1.5 Y/X ratio.

See my post in the other thread concerning Steady Aim firmwares and how they may affect your experience using the Linear Ramp workarounds:

Its not working for me what am I doing wrong?
I can play on 800DPI with a Sensitivity of 1 and still get Pixel Skipping...
I tried the 8.5 curve and 5000 Boost nothing worked the starting Sensitivity just gets even higher.
