« on: 12:09 AM - 09/03/08 »
Hey does anyone here play Gears of War on the xbox 360 with a XIM1 or just XFPS?

yeah tried it with XIM setup. Personally I don't think 3rd person perspective "over the shoulder view" really lends itself to kb / m.  Actually finished GOW (normal & hard) using just the controller (and I suck at controllers).  Same situation with MGS4.

The soul purpose of me getting XIM2 besides COD4 and UT3, is GOW1 and 2. I can't wait!

GOW works with Xim1 and Xim 360. Unfortunately the game's sensitivity doesn't go very high so it makes using a mouse not so fastt. It's responsive and feels nice, just can't turn very fast with it no matter what you do. This is one game I don't mind with the controller, and that is RARE for me to say that.

Does it feel slow even with a 1800dpi+ mouse? Thanks for the your input Nick.

The sensitivity issue is due entirely to the game's settings. It will take longer sweeps with a mouse to turn, though the XIM/XIM2 and mouse settings can act to minimize the speed needed during such movements.

Really, I never have touched the controller with this game so I dont know what its like. I see peopel pull some amazing crap off with the controller. The game is a load of lag though.

I just got GOW last week and am playing through the campaign on casual (just starting act 5) right now, so I'm sure I still suck badly at multiplayer. but I am willing to learn
i haven't used the controller at all so far (thanks Nick!)

I tried Gow with xim so long ago but never really liked the feel of it and decided to wait for xim2 and try again.

Maybe i'll go check the cfg section and dig it out!
