U can also use the basics of the inventory config for looting. Just bind the reload Button to a secondary button on your keyboard (for example t). For the new looting config you can use this for activation. So u can reload without activate the sub config. After a few games it should be in the muscel memory (reload =R, looting = T).


Good Idea, but how to change the config?
HIP cfg:

Reload = R
Secondary Reload = T

Aux cfg activate = T

Reload = None

I will test everything tomorrow and post a code. But i would recommend to unterstand how xim is working and do it yourself. Its really helpfull if u need a tweak here and there and for other games.

Bind mouse wheel up and down to your right stck for inventory cursor auxiliary. This allows you to scroll if you use in use inventory cursor auxiliary like Alan posted earlier. And for more PC like feel bind mouse click left and right to pick up and select items.

could you explain this ? i can get it working

I also remap my mouse buttons to A and X (left and right mouse) makes if (for me at least) more intuitive.
Yep, that's how I use it, Left Mouse Button = Cross|A,  Right Mouse Button  = Square|X as a secondary mapping on the Inventory sub-config.

Advanced Tipps:
Delay (inventory config) should be at least 150 ms. If i am sprinting and i open the inventory (at 100 ms), the cursor goes to the top (instead of beeing in the middle). Its important So u can drop thinks quickly during sprinting.

U can also use the basics of the inventory config for looting. Just bind the reload Button to a secondary button on your keyboard (for example t). For the new looting config you can use this for activation. So u can reload without activate the sub config. After a few games it should be in the muscel memory (reload =R, looting = T)...
You're totally right, yeah definitely I will prefer having a sub-config for looting than a one for nades.

That's a good idea man, I going to use it on my sub-config.
Inventory Subconfig/Movement section set:
Wheel Down = Right Stick Down,
Wheel Up = Right Stick UP.

Thank you gentlemen for sharing :)

Thanks Od1n, I though on make generic guide but... this game is quite hot and some particular tweaks are necessary but still I hope this helps to tune other games dials menus.

All these options are deliver by OBsIV wits, gave us a lot of options.

It will be nice having another page of Auxiliary, but now that I think you all get more familiar with the subject...

It will be GREAT to have a "Turn Assist Apply on Activation Key",


So we don't need to hold down the turn assist key AND the sub-config activation key, to select with the mouse.
Just hold down the activation key and move the mouse. Small change, but make a noticeable difference, save one button and it will make it less clunky.

Beside the fact that some link configs are incompatible between XIM Manager versions. On my experience when I shared the link, and someone tries to customize something, they often miss some crucial binds that make the whole thing work.

IMO is better to do it manually, so you can also choose the ST you prefer or even apply it to the official when available.

Hi Alan. Good post  8)

On the Inventory tutorial however, you have turn assist checked, and the activation key is "mouse forward". What is mouse forward?  ???

For Nav users, if you haven't already figured it out you should make the sub-configs toggle, instead of hold, otherwise you're going to be trying to hold down one of the arrow keys while moving the stick, which is pretty awkward. I changed them to toggle and it made things easy.

Thanks again for the guide!

I'm also curious as to why mouse forward is used for turn assist?
Why couldn't you use the same key that is used for the Aux profile?

For example if your using G for Ping, you can't use G for the Aux profile and use G for Turn Assist? That way all you would have to do is hold G down and it would activate the Aug profile and Turn assist? Hope this makes sense.

Thanks very much for posting this but all this is beyond me.  Iíve tried for 6-8 hours this weekend to get something as simple as usingthe config wheel but canít.  Itís frustrating as all @#$% because switching between DS4 and Xim 30 times a game in a fire fight leads to frustrating deaths.

No matter what I do when I hit the ďactivation keyĒ my look shoots straight up.

I just need to buy a PC and leave consoles for Spider-Man.

When Iím in game, and I click what I have R1 bound to while holding that button my look goes to the analog Nav thumbstick.  Which is working but the config wheel is not coming up.

I swear I have to be one of the dumbest persons around... why am I having so much issues.

I tried Titanfall 2 config and didnít think they were great. Plus I use a Nav Controller and a mouse so no keyboard. Is there any update to when the Apex Legends config will arrive? Thanks
