So figured I would put my settings up.  Linear felt really good, but turn speeds were a little lacking so I found several curves without boost that felt a little better for tracking.  Anyways, on to the good stuff.  Here is my setup and I hope some of you find it helpful. 

PLAYER EXPERIENCE
Top 500 Season 4:  Soldier/Zarya main
Current Season High:  4414 (not top 500 yet since I only have about 30 games in so far, but I am def in range for it again this season)
Favorite Heroes:  Tracer, Soldier, Zarya, Lucio

HARDWARE
SYSTEM:  PS4 Pro
MOUSE:  Logitech G502
MOUSEPAD:  Artisan Mid
KEYBOARD:  Corsair Strafe Stealth

IN GAME SETTINGS
AA - 100 (with linear it feels better to leave at max even for pharrah, but i don't play her a lot so you may want to mess around with AA for her and lucio)
Aim Smoothing - 0
AA Window 25
SENS - 100 for both
RAMP - Linear

XIM SETTINGS
FIRMWARE - SA03
ST - Console Controller Crossover
MOUSE DPI - 12k/1000hz polling no angle snapping
SENS - 9.5
BOOST - 0
STEADY AIM - Off
Y/X RATIO - 1.5

AND HERE ARE MY CURVES

I really didn't like the way boost cut off the beginning of the curve so I found some curves that have proven to work for me without boost.  I am posting all 3 since personal preference may differ.  Also remember to adjust sens to your liking since your mousepad/mouse may provide different results.

**MY SENS**
CURVE 1 SENS:  9.5
CURVE 2 SENS:  16.5
CURVE 3 SENS:  12

All curves use the same settings posted above.  The only thing that differs is the sens.


****CURVE 1****

>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
X4MB:AAAAGgA0AC4AMAAwAC4AMgAwADEANgAwADQAMAA1ESpDXHV9hY2VnZ2dnZ2enp6enp6f:X4MB
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<

I have played around with linear quite i bit and this feels the best to me.  Great turn speed and precise accuracy with small mouse movements.


****CURVE 2****

>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
X4MB:AAAAGgA0AC4AMAAwAC4AMgAwADEANgAwADQAMAA1ERslLzlDTVdha3V/iZOdnZ2dnZ2d:X4MB
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<

http://imgur.com/a/6TQIY

I have shared settings with a few friends of mine and a couple (mind you this is at GM level) have said they really like the feel of this one.  It is the standard 8.5 curve with max turn speed cutoff.


****CURVE 3****

>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
X4MB:AAAAGgA0AC4AMAAwAC4AMgAwADEANgAwADQAMAA1ESI0RVdoeoudnZ2dnZ2enp6enp6f:X4MB
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<

This curve, at first, felt really good but with my setup pulled slightly when trying to track.  In theory this is the 8.5 curve "henrylibre style."  It may work for others so I wanted to share.

Please keep in mind that sens is personal pref.  Please do not dismiss curves without adjusting the sens to your liking.  Typically what i do is adjust the sens til i hit my desired turn speed and then play with the curve for 1-2 hours.  Don't test this in training ground, but actually against real players.  You wont really know how good it feels until you do.  This is my personal experience, but i can attest the right way to test your curves.

Please make sure you guys keep posting your settings if you change things up.  This just helps the XIM users to get that much closer to finding the perfect setup for linear.

thanks for this got to number 2 eu on xbox using these settings but already on avoid me so back to world of tanks I guess

Blizzard stupidly opted into the Xbox Live reputation system for their matchmaking. The system is so badly designed it's easily abused, and everyone knows it.

Headshot someone as Widowmaker twice in a match and you are getting reported for something, anything, out of spite reason is irrelevant. Play a character someone doesn't like and you are getting reported. Don't pick Mercy when someone asks you report coming in...

Then matchmaker starts trying to match you with people of your low "toxic" reputation, of your skill level, in your region, with a ping close to yours and it's just impossible to satisfy those conditions so you end up waiting 30 minutes for a match.

Hi guys. How do I get my turn speed faster. I'm happy with smoothness of my settings. 2000 dpi usinging linear boost.

Boost at 4900

My sens is at 140 but the higher I go it doesn't seem to make any difference to turn speed.

Use hoodloom's linear ramp build with his #1 curve. Turn speed is fast plus the aiming is good

thanks I'll try this. Never had much luck with curves though. Can it be found on this thread? Also when people post their curves how do I get it across to my xim. I only use my iPhone. Do I have to manually input it?

This is what worked best for me I started the curve at 9 instead of 8.5

Hello everyone,
I'm using a self-made curve with linear settings (X/Y 1.5 and steady aim on) and I'm feeling very close to pc in terms of aim and tracking, but there's still a problem: turn speed.
My aim is fine but when I turn very fast, I always feel I am too slow than I'd want to and that's so annoying!
Ofc in these fast turn movements Xim blinks red telling me I exceeded the maximum turn speed  :'(
That's why I have a couple questions:
1) Settings i could run with SA3 (other curves or boost mode)  provide more accuracy and bypass "Xim maximum turn speed"? ---> 2) More in general, is there a way to make turn speed faster? 
Thanks for the help  :D

P. S. : if I install SA3, I'll lose my current settings?

2) More in general, is there a way to make turn speed faster? 
There is an idea of an acceleration curve that remains linear for slow mouse movement (aiming) and speeds up fast movement (turning) several times to provide a faster turn.

Problem with Overwatch at this moment in time is that broken Linear Ramp forces us to compress the linear curve and if we try to divide what's left of the curve into the two zones linear slow and accelerated fast there would not be much left in either the border would be crossed too easily... Or so I suspect.

This is how it normally looks, and would look if Linear Ramp was not broken:
Code: [Select]
>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
X4MB:AAAAGgA0AC4AMAAwAC4AMgAwADEANQAwADgAMQA2AAoUHigyPElacIupyMjIyMjIyMjI:X4MB
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<



Second option is the one I used in Destiny. Button which doubles or triples sensitivity when held. When I needed to make a sharp 180 I would just press caps lock,  and also when sprinting I would keep it pressed to get higher turn speed during sprint.

Third option is "Turn Assist" in the Mouse section. Button while pressed will keep you turning in a direction in which you moved the mouse until button is released.

Fourth option is mapping right stick to two buttons. Q and E, or 2 and 3. This is done under Keyboard section where you mapped your WASD keys. If 2 is mapped to right stick Left and 3 is maped to right stick Right when you hold one of those buttons you turn at maximum speed in that direction.

How do I copy and paste these curves. Do I have to plug my XIM4 into a pc?

I actually gave up on linear ramp. Hoodlum's #1 felt pretty good but was still inconsistent when I was playing at a faster rate, leading to decreased accuracy. I have since switched to expo ramp and the official overwatch St and have just been sticking with it.

No, just copy the code (without the <<< and >>> symbols) and paste it into the paste box next to the ballistic curve in your XIM profile.  It's the box with  the checkmark.  The box next to that one is the copy function for the curve.

I actually worked on a curve last night to try and address the slow turn speed issue. This is my first attempt at a curve.  I basically took zombie's famous hip curve and adjusted it to start at 8.0 for linear ramp. The idea is to maintain aiming integrity, but increase turn speeds without having to jack up my sensitivity really high.  Turn speed is kind of slow on the Console Crossover ST, so I tried to make a curve that would help with characters like Winston, Lucio, Tracer, & Zarya. It doesn't make a drastic difference, but when I tested quick flick turns, I was able to turn a little further when compared to the normal curve.

This was made for PS4 starting 8.0, so if your linear curve starts higher you'll need to adjust.

That's why people were laughing at the mountain shape of it.

I haven't tried it personally (hesitant anyways since I already have something that works well). It might work well with spray and pray characters like the stated Soldier and Tracer, but I don't really see it having very good pin point accuracy for a character like Widow or McCree (once again, just my opinion based on seeing the picture of the curve).

I can see why Tracer/Genji players might want more turn speed and end up using a mountain curve like this (I don't play much of them myself).

Nvm. I was able to install SA03 without losing current configs.

I can't seem to install the file using my mac for some reason.  Is a PC required for the experimental SAs?  Mac won't unzip the file.
