« on: 07:56 PM - 06/16/20 »
Was wondering because I use my APEX paired with nav and g502 and it's awesome.

I agree, this is a great way to play. This would be one of the scenarios that official PC support would make sense.
Get the most out of your XIM APEX, read the XIM APEX Support FAQ.

You can do it already, it's just not supported by XIM.

Not officially supported but it still works well, in some cases it works much better

Agreed, Destiny 2 with XIM APEX on PC is a much better experience than PS4 or XB1.

True.

Same with StarWars Battlefront II 2017, my XIM4 is way more smooth than on console, I guess is due the input lag.

I prefer to play with XIM4, because I got used to fly Starfighters using the Turn Assist, even though the ST doesn't support it, I became very skillful a real strafing nightmare and dog-fighting master. Game's mouse flying mechanics is dreadful.

I have to mention, this game doesn't offers Aim Assist when using a controller (XIM) on PC. The AA option in missing, and there is no slow-down and auto-lock on.

Battlefield V, same story however it does offers Aim Assist BUT I prefer native mouse. Be able to do precise fast flicks and snap aiming makes me lethal than any aim slowdown help.

Best thing about using XIM on PC is the key binding - I can use controller inputs that I am more used to as opposed to binding separate keys for EVERYTHING!!!!

Another advantage are individual HIP - ADS sensitivities, one would think every PC game allows you do dial them in individually but in reality its the exact opposite...

That's my primary reason to trying XIM APEX on PC too.

I far prefer the compact controller layouts to spraying actions all over the keyboard. Forcing me to use ESC to back out of a menu is reason enough for me to use a XIM :shakefist:.

That said, I prefer console gaming for the plug-and-play simplicity and significantly lower risk of hackers.
