[Q/A] XIM4 Getting really bad input lag
« on: 03:00 PM - 03/13/18 »
I picked up payday2 on sale the other day and went to fire up my xim today and I am getting horrible input lag on movement, aiming is fine. This is happening on both my normal ps4 and my pro. I am using a controller for the movement. Any ideas?

Unfortunately some games do have a feeling of added input lag. Usually these are Ubisoft games or recently BF1 had this issue for a long time after launch and was later fixed by DICE. I can only recommend using the max in-game sensitivity and then using a vanilla config without expert settings. If you're using a TV you could also verify you're using game mode and other image/sound enhancements are disabled to reduce input lag.

I only get this when I introduce the xim4 into the equation, using just the controller there is no lag. Also I thought that it was weird that I only get lag for movement, there is no aiming/look lag.

That makes sense. This sort of thing will be more noticeable using a mouse.

Im not sure if you are understanding, there is no lag on the mouse, the look/aim has no lag, only movement has lag.

Oh, player movement? With the controller attached to XIM4 if you move the left analog stick do you experience the same lag?

yes, I don't use a keyboard, I use either an xbox controller for movement and a mouse for aiming or I use the ps4 controller for movement and mouse for aiming.

Could you try creating a new config without making changes and check player movement with that config active, does the same issue occur?

That seems to have pretty much taken care of it. Thanks Mist.
