XIM2 what is this?
« on: 07:33 AM - 07/20/08 »
Hi,
i am new here.
at first i will say sorry for my bad english.

Than my question is, what is the XIM2, can i play with Mouse and Keyboard on the XBOX 360 with XIM2?

i was bought me a XFPS 360 Pro Sniper, but this thing i not so realy great.
The Keyboard works great, but ive a realy big Deadzone for the Mouse, that makes it realy hard to hit anyone.

Can anyone help me please, i like to play with mouse and keyboard, but how does it work without Deadzone?

Tank you.

It is a device used to connect your pc's keyboard and mouse to your 360 . Please feel free to read more about it in the stickies at the top of the forums ...
 You can get a better understanding by reading Obsiv's original blog here :

 This is generation 1 xim.
The second generation is called xim360 which is on the verge of being released.
 There is a pre-made kit .... and a Do It Yourself kit. Currently they are in the process of ordering D.I.Y. KITS ... Later they will be releasing  pre-built kits ..

IT WOULD HELP IF YOU COULD READ UP ON IT AS MUCH AS YOU CAN HERE IN THE FORUMS . There is a program you use on xim 1 that helps you adjust settings.
In generation 2 (xim360) it has a program called deadzone finder which helps you adjust the deadzone feel.
 Here is a pic of the program that you can download for xim1. This will give you an idea of the controls you have to tweak.



XIM360 IS 100% BETTER THAN THE XFPS SNIPER ... NOTHING LIKE IT AT ALL. XIM360  will out perform the generation 1 xim by leaps and bounds . No longer do you need the xfps+xim .. The xim360 is soldered to the controller board which eliminates the milliseconds reponse time you get with the xim+xfps combo. I have been using the xim+xfps since it came out and I love it . It isn't perfect but in some games it comes close. We are all anticipating the xim360 because it will fix alot of the  small issues some games have with generation 1 xim .

No problem ...  ;D The web site store is found here :

http://store.xim360.com/shopping/

Detailed instructions come with the kits.
They are only taking D.I.Y kit orders right now . Pre-built xim360's will come a little later. Good luck on your build and welcome to the forums !

I was at the mall today and you know what I saw (no joke)??? A XFPS sniper 3.0 box in the trash. It was like they were reading my mind, of course the unit was in there but it's a great start.

Oh ya.

Waste of money. That and you could just give them to the random person who could use them. I've already decided on giving my entire XIM setup to a friend, to allow them to try it out, if nothing else. Maybe they'll get more mileage out of their games afterward, I don't know. Point is it won't be doing any good just sitting there, which is already a step above it being a dust-covered XIM on the shelf, with the XFPS in the trash bin.

Not a waste of maney for me. I've got my satisfaction out of Xim 1 already and frankly I think the xfps needs a good a$$ whoopin.  ;D

You could also give the xfps away to people you hate. You know, that guy across the street that thinks he's the sh** at Halo. Then you use your xim360 to blow him out of the water. Just lie and say you are using an xfpos too. :P
