Everyone has different preference. I usually use dial auxilaries for all my games. Not this one. I make a small circle with my mouse then it let's me easily select the item. If you struggle with this just add turn assist to your hip movement and hold it while you are holding the grenade, heal, or spot key.

What I like is using a cursor auxilary that swaps sticks/ allows mouse movement/ click for selection/ mouse wheel to scroll when I open inventory/looting. I can also use this for character selection and the menu.

I also make  a map auxilary that is similar to my cursor aux.

What are your Auxilary set ups if you don't mind my asking?

Ignore my sensitivities as they are not all dialed in. I'm also using mouse tilt left as my ping if you see the [.

This. Drag the mouse out a little bit and use a circular motion to select, works every time. The only time it's troublesome is selecting from the ping wheel since there are more options requiring more precision.

Thanks Alan. I really enjoyed your RDR2 dial setting, also thanks to this tutorial.

But using this setting I found a small problem.

Iím using sony nav, so analog setting. But when Iím running and suddenly press the key for ping, my aim quickly moves to up top. I think itís because Iím pushing sony nav stick to front and same time I press the key for ping, so my nav input is interpreted to right stick movement.

Sure, when I completely stop and press the key for ping (or health....), then it is all OK. But this is fast-paced game. So sometimes I have to press ping button or health button when Iím moving or strafing to left-right.

So how can I solve this problem?

Try adding a 200 ms activation delay to the Ping sub-config.

For XIM4, I think analyzing the principles on this guide you can figure how to do it on XIM4, is actually more straight forward because you don't have to enable expert config, and all the options are already available.

Yes, can be done on XIM4.

I don't have my XIM4 at this moment, borrowed.

Can you set up similar menu for looting with left n right click? Wouldn't  it be problematic for every time you press SQUARE you would toggle into that? Any work arounds? Also, high velocity works better imo on this game

For looting you can create a SubConfig, use the mouse to move the cursor follow the directions. Your Loot Activation key should be the a secondary RELOAD bind on HIP.

So for reloading you use the primary reload bind, for looting your secondary reload bind so you enter to Loot Subconfig.

Hi!, some games incorporate a dial menu to make commands or select different items.

eg.
Red Dead Redemption 2


Battlefield V


Fortnite


Overwatch


The Division, and many more.

This type of "dials controls" are meant to make a selection using an analog-stick, not a mouse.

Using XIM Mouse translation to make the selection can be quite difficult, you need a very high sensitivity, also moving the mouse in a circular motion is recommended:


Method 1. Using an Analog stick, allows to swap to the Nav analog stick to make the selection.

Method 2. Using turn assist, this increase all your mouse movements, while the turn assist button is held down.

Method 3. Uses the WASD keys, this is useful on menus up to 8 possible slices, because WASD allows 8 directions only.

Hey, would you mind giving me your opinion on the set up that I use which uses High Velocity curve instead of classic. To me this seems to add a lot more turn cap speed, but I may be mistaken. I use this in order to be able to use lower in-game sensitivity

Settings :
4k DPI
1000 HZ
HIP .75 (Common)
ADS 1.05 (Common X/Y 1.05)

In-game
HIP 7
ADS 6
Curve: High Velocity

Or possibly you wouldn't recommend this because the setting wasn't trained for this? I am just trying to find the ideal way to get little aim assist as the turn cap doesn't allow me to play properly without it.

Thanks! I swear I got the inventory thing to work (sometimes strange when I press inventory (f) it started to walk with the mouse instead of going to inventory but now........ Now I can't even have the F as activation key. What the hell is going on??

EDIT: I tried G as inventory, sometimes it works with the mouse, sometimes not. Anyone know why?
I give up :)
