Gears 4 - Mouse Look not working when running
« on: 08:17 AM - 02/09/20 »
I am a campaign gamer
The last time I played multiplayer on line was Quake 3 a long time ago :)

I got a Xbox One X recently and a XIM Apex

I set up Gears 4 and everything seems to work ok

Except that I cannot turn/look with the mouse while running
Walking and mouse look/turning work fine

I can only run in a straight line
The mouse has no effect while running

Is this something in the Game settings or in XIM?
Thanks for any help on this

I've not played Gears for a while, but sprinting in Gears is "roadie run", and I'm pretty sure you can't look around ..  only "wiggle" your character as you more or less run in a straight line ?
Oh and welcome to the forum  :)

You canít turn because the tiny turn you can do in Gears while running requires you to fully peg the stick for like a second minimum to even start changing direction. When youíre doing mouse swipes what youíre essentially doing is pegging the stick for milliseconds at a time, and that isnít enough movement to activate the turn.

Try using the turn assist feature thatís in Apex Manager, basically lets you keep the stick pegged without having to constantly swipe your mouse.

Thanks for the replies
Not sure what turn assist is in the XIM?

Is it called TURN ASSIST in the setups?
I am not near my XIM right now
Thanks
